    The wines and cocktails were good pours and affordable. The clams casino were good, just not enough clams to much breading. All our dishes were served piping hot and cooked to perfection. The veal parmesan chop was moist and juicy. My fish was served with garlic spinach, artichoke hearts in a light butter sauce and was enough to feed two people. For desert we had cream brûlée, assorted berries with whipped cream. Our cappuccino's and latte were good. Service from beginning to end was friendly and courteous.

    Took my mother for her birthday. It was her first time there. Debbie was our server. She was phenomenal. So helpful, sweet, attentive and prompt. She even brought my mother an amazing dessert. Food was good but it has been better on previous occasions. Calalmari that was grilled was a little tougher than normal as were the artichokes. My mother's beef entree was delicious though and the coffee was great too!

    Great Italian food- fish dishes (e.g. snapper francaise) is always terrific; vegetables are fresh and well prepared; would also recommend the fresh fish sandwich, the eggplant pancakes ("signature dish") are fabulous. Only downside is that it's noisy unless you come very early!

    This was our first time at Mario's Osteria but it won't be our last. Lauren,our server, was very attentive and very pleasant. The food was great, especially the fried calamari. Grilled lamb chops cooked to perfection as was the broccoli rabe. Chicken Milanese excellent too. We will definitely return to Mario's and we will bring our friends.

    Marios Osteria is one of our favorite restaurants. Everything is excellent from the menu, to the service, to the ambiance, to the food. We come here frequently and will continue. Never been disappointed here. This time we had the grilled swordfish and the chicken meatballs - we loved them both. Their hot folls, plain or garlic, are delicious. Servers and managers are attentive. We'll be back soon.

    Food was tasty but not exceptional. Portions were large but everything was a la cart. No salad or soup offered with entree. Was disappointed to find sodas were 2.75 for a 10 oz. bottle so of course no refills for our famiy of 7. Attempted to put a sticky edged baby placemat on the table for the 10 month old we brought but were told by the hostess that it removes the finish of their tables so she brought us a paper child's coloring book placemat which the baby promptly tried to eat and threw on the floor. Not child friendly in any way. There are many other Italian resaurants in town that are just as good, more affordable and more family friendly in every way.

    Excellent food quality. Good service. Not the place to be if you want to take advantage of the Happy Hour offerings if you are wheelchair bound. Only place to be seated is outside by the couch where you have to contend with the heat and the bugs and lack of a table. Makes it very difficult to eat or drink. Exceptions should be made to accommodate the handicap population. There are ADA laws are there not? Only other option is to sit inside at a table where you can only order off the regular menu.

    The "Mario" family has long been involved in great food in BocaRaton. Due to financial problems, we no longer have the homey original Mario's or the delicious Mario's Tuscan Grill. With Osteria they are definitely back. Great menu, upscale pasta dishes, old favorites with a new taste. There is something on that large menu for everyone and every pocketbook. I have been there for lunch and dinner and will return!

    Well the service was nothing above par and it was so slow in the restaurant, all the servers were just hanging out starring at the guests around the room, which was odd. Towards the end of our salad, we found a short piece of hair on the side of the bowl which grossed us out. The manager came over afterwards to vaguely just say she took it off the bill and barely had any care, casually apologizing. They usually have good food at least... But this time they even got my order wrong I'm addition to the hair in our food.

    Mario's - an unexpected find! Convenient and new, we gave it a try! The food was excellent, portions huge, service excellent and the price was right! Table breads are delicious.One Caesar salad served three of us! Appetizers are entrée size! The Veal Parm was traditional, tender and delicious.The Veal Francaise was outstanding. Both veal dishes were served with pasta or vegetables. The baked Sampler Casserole platter, served in a family size casserole has lasagna, eggplant rollatini, ziti, sausage and other house specialties all covered with cheese and baked. Enough food in that dish ($21) to feed 4! Pizza was good. Bar prepared drinks quickly and seems well stocked. Visit Mario's while they are delicious, reasonable and friendly!

    BAD: my husband ordered a drink between the appetizer course and the main course. Halfway through his main course, the drink still had not arrived. Jaime, our waiter explained that the bar was just too busy to make it - what?!! Who ever heard of a restaurant being too busy to make a $12 martini? Drink canceled. I ordered a crème brulee and the runner brought it out without silverware. When I asked for silverware, I was given a dirty spoon that was bigger than a soup spoon. Replaced. GOOD: The food was wonderful. The veal was probably the best quality veal I have ever had. Succulent without being pounded to death. Pasta sauce was not acidic but on the sweet side the way we like it. My husband had a wonderful swordfish. Will go back.

    A Saturday night. Arrived a few minutes early. Complimentary valet service whisked my car away. Hostess seated us immediately. Server, Michael brought out drinks and bread immediately. We had an Eggplant Napoleon appetizer, one of their signature dishes. It was very good. We'll have it again next time. Then we had the Gorgonzola Salad with Grilled Shrimp on top. Loved it. Ended the meal with capucino, a perfect ending to a great dining experience. Ambiance, menu, food, service, price all very very good.Everything was perfect, as we expect from a fine restaurant.

    Food was delicious. Had the Eggplant Pancakes, Gnoochi, and a pizza - all fabulous. The service was the worst ever experienced. Forgetful, wrong orders, accusatory when we told them we did not order the short rib dinner but the rigatoni with short ribs. Brought it back out just to be certain. Really bad service.

    Dinner for six (6) and every dish was prepared and served wonderfully, and our server was attentive, personable and professional. The Calamari Fra Diablo appetizer is winner. It was tender, not over battered, and the cherry peppers added just the right amount of heat. Our main dishes were all on the money. Veal Milanese, Chicken Scapriello, Spaghetti & Meatballs, Baked Gnocchi, and more. We have been to this restaurant many times and rarely is ever disappoints. This meal was the best yet!

    We went to visit our son and he enjoys Italian food. We all found things that were right for us. My son loves his pasta, my husband enjoys his chicken and I was thrilled to see they offered gluten free options. Eating Italian out can be very difficult with my diet restrictions but this was great!!!
