“old-time Italian”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

Mario's is a long-time fixture in Southbridge. I love old-time Italian restaurants wite the nice low warm lights and wood decor. We go here for the Friday fish dishes -- their calamari is nice, and the bar is simple but exactly what is needed..

“Valentine's Dinner”
Reviewed 14 February 2013

We went here tonight for Valentine's on a whim and it was very good. They actually had a few tables availble. We had "loggers" for an appetizer which is mozarella squares and they were very good and my husband had veal parm and I had chicken marsala over pasta. The marsala was a little dry but I asked the waitress for extra sauce and she accomodated. We had limoncello cake for dessert and it was great. It was small and cozy inside with Italian music in the background. Our waitress was great.

“Family fare for an "Italian" family!”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

If you aren't Italian, you'll feel like you are when you walk in the door. From the greeting at the door, until you loosen your belt after dinner, and lean back in your chair, you'll feel as though you've come home to your family villa for dinner. Great food, great prices, friendly smiles. Keep it to yourselves though, I don't want it to get too crowded!

“Best "Real" Italian food in the area”
Reviewed 11 April 2012

Many restaurants claim to b e "Italian" but they "Americanize" their servings. Mario's serves authentic Italian food, prepared and served in the classic Italian way. No fusion, no updating, no experimental chefs. Just good Italian food prepared the way it was meant to be. Try the Fetticuini with Shrimp Alfredo or the Sliced Peppers and Sausage with pasta. The best ever.
