Not a huge space so you are sitting close to the next table. Was packed when we went, however no wait as we we had a reservation. It took forever to get our bottle of wine or even water. I asked for water 4 different times. Wine was reasonably priced. Appetizers were ok, small size and over salted (mussels), calamari was too large so it was chewy. Main course was very good, perfect size, Penne vodka and linguine a la mar. Sauce and pasta perfect...bread was nice and warm too. Wait staff was very friendly just over-whelmed with how busy it was. Once it slowed down service was very good Nice local spot I would go to again but not run to.

Cute little restaurant
They make the best calamari. I would go back just for the calamari.

Great lunch menu
Mario's has an extensive and inexpensive lunch menu! Great lunch entrees and sandwiches for $9.95 and $12.95 which include homemade soup or salad. The food was delicious~have been there twice in one week and plan on going back frequently! Will definitely spread the word about this!

Mario pulled it off!!!
With an unexpected slim staff on a night when over 2 million extra people were in NYC, Mario pulled off a great dining experience. We had reservations for 7, arrived on time but had to wait for 10 minutes. Mario immediately bought us a round of drinks for our consideration! Mario personally sat each person in the restaurant, made sure each person was satisfied and kept his poise. The food was delicious and very moderately priced (especially for NYC!) The place is a bit small but you won't regret your experience at Mario's!

Excellent service, tasty food
Great service, with a super friendly waiter who answered all our questions. The food was also quite good - everyone in our group of four was more than happy. I would absolutely recommend this place.
