Restaurant details
Reviewed 19 May 2013

As another reviewer said - cant say anything overly negative, but nothing stood out either. We ordered off the daily special list. Fair value. Service was good. But the food was bland and seemed unseasoned. Probably better Italian restaurants in the area.

Nothing fancy and prices reflect it. Just some wholesome Italian food around the corner of the neighborhood.

To the person who wrote the " exists" review . I looks to me like you are a waiter type who couldn't get a job there. Am I right ? so now you are angry . Looks like you only eat steroids anyway so why would you even go to Marios unless you needed a job. I love going for a hot meal here.
This guy who was rude drinks protein shakes and probably does not eat Calzone or Penne.
I am sure if they had protein drinks and steroids he
d love the place .He should go to Golds Gym . There are a lot of steroid men there to hang with.
You aren't interested in food ...GET REAL !
MARIOS IS GREAT FOR NORMAL FAMILY TYPES !

They have a huge menu and it looked promissing. The servers are nice.
The lighting in this place is really odd. Reddish.
We were a party of 5, friends, we ordered the large caesar salad to share. It did not taste like caesar salad. It had a horseraddish element to it. If a restaurant is going to do this, they should explain it on their menu that they put a twist to the traditional. So, it was NOT a favourite. Those that had the basic salad with thousand island dressing seemed pleased with their decision.
Then the pasta came. I had ordered fettuccini with mushroom sauce. It was mostly sauce to pasta ratio, I prefer the opposite. The sauce did not taste like mushrooms, although there were mushrooms in it. The sauce was red and very sweet.
Hubby ordered chicken parmesian with side of spaghetti and he was disappointed.
Friend`s son ordered pepperoni pizza and it was loaded with cheese that had no flavour.
Really too bad and I regretted going out to eat this evening.

I can only give this place an average rating. There wasn't anything completely negative or positive to say about the food. Service was just ok. Nothing to really write home to mom about!
