The Perrrrfect Restaurant!
Our first dining experience was PERRRFECT! Great service, great food, great atmosphere! We made reservations and we were seated right away - even though the restaurant was jam packed and we could hardly get through the front door! We were pleasantly surprised that we were escorted to our table without delay! Cannot wait to go back again!

Love their pizza and salad lunch special. Smaller but perfectly sized for lunch pizza with one topping along with a small gorgonzola salad. Excellent.

Being that this was at least
Being that this was at least our 4th dinner at Mario's Osteria we have come to expect an outstanding dining experience. Reservation was honored immediately. Waitress Lauren G. did an outstanding job from start to finish. Salad, soup and entrees came timely; well presented and prepared as requested. Of special note was the eggplant parmegian. Hearty portion, correct temperature and well seasoned. The individual pizza and chicken sausage were also well prepared and seasoned to perfection. Compliments to the valet parkers, especially since it was pouring that evening and they were most helpful.

Great for Italian in Boca Raton
Outstanding Italian restaurant on Glades Road. Been there a half dozen times this year. Ambiance, menu, food, service all excellent.
Their plates are large and frequently shareable. We love their Gorgonzola Salad,as well as their chicken meatballs with pasta. Our friends have commented very positively on their seafood. I would say that you cannot go wrong here. Manga.

Not sure why this restaurant
Not sure why this restaurant is on open table as they do not take reservations after 6:15 pm. Our reservation was at 5:45 pm and we would have preferred a later time. We assumed restaurant was very busy but found out when we got there that it wasn't. It's just that they don't allow reservations beyond 6:15 pm. Not a good system in our opinion, particularly since there was 7 of us.
Food is very good. Very large portions. Pricing of wine by the glass is very high as is a gelato for dessert. Be prepared for a huge bill.

Food was excellent. Only drawback
Food was excellent. Only drawback was we felt rushed throughout our meal. Waiter wanted to take our order right away. Check got delivered with our coffee! Hurry up, drink your coffee and get out!

Enjoyable dining experience
We eat out often and Mario's comes to mind when we are "stuck" for a dining choice. Food is quite good, well presented, and ample.

The absolute BEST
Wow, Wow, Wow, this is without a doubt our FAVORITE restaurant. In the 12 years since we have left New Jersey, this is the first restaurant that we can say is actually as good as the ones up there. The Italian food brought me back to my grandmother's kitchen in the Italian section of Newark, NJ. Dale and Mary, the owners are present in the restaurant to be certain that everything is perfect. Steve, the assistant general manager makes certain to stop at every table to interact with the diners. If you have the chance, run don't walk to this neighborhood gem. When you get there tell them John and Shel sent you!!!

The food was the best. We had a wonderful lunch and the service was great. They also have wonderful hot garlic rolls. The lunch menu is extensive and the portions are very large. You get choices of a salad, soup of the day, or fries. We would go back anytime.

"I'll be back"
Great food, better than mamma, attentive staff...What else do you need, oh some wine. Plenty to choose.
Lunch: Two entrees, a bottle of Prosecco, a shared dessert, tax and generous tip= $107. Worth it.

Great food, service and fun time!
It was our first visit to this restaurant, and it did not disappoint. We had a reservation, arrived early, and were still seated right away. The service and food were excellent, We were a party of six and had everything from pasta to veal to steak and each entree was delicious. The portions were so generous - the waitress was kind enough to box up our leftovers for us. We were treated to a birthday dessert which was a decadent chocolate cake with a firework-type candle - a nice and surprising touch. Our dinner was a relaxing and great experience and reasonably priced for this type of venue and food. We would definitely recommend Mario's Osteria and look forward to trying their lunch and happy hour in the near future.

the only thing I did not like
the only thing I did not like was when the waiter wanted to clear the dishes while some of us were still eating.

Gets Better EVERY Time
Wow, Wow, Wow. What a WONDERFUL place. Mario's is definitely our FAVORITE restaurant. Not only are the owners Mary & DEAN wonderful but the food is phenomenal. Debbie is the best server ever!!! She wasn't available the night we ate here but she made certain to come and say hi as well as check back with us throughout dinner. The Sunday feast is enough for the whole family but so good that you won't want to share it! The profiteroles are the best we have ever eaten with 4 different ice creams. This is a restaurant that you won't want to miss whenever you are in the Boca or Ft. Lauderdale area. Make sure you run don't walk to this wonderful place. Although they don't take reservations after 6:15, wait if necessary you won't be sorry.

MARIO'S HITS THE SPOT
Very good Italian food with many choices,. Service is excellent. There are a number of sections you can sit: restaurant, bar in restaurant, bar outside with comfortable seating or outside. They even have a canopy that they roll down if it rains. Fans above keep it cool,

Perfect birthday dinner!
We celebrated a birthday at Mario's and everyone had an exceptional meal! The appetizer, main meal and dessert were all delicious. The waitress was very attentive and knowledgeable about most of the menu items and recommended the perfect wine.
The red velvet cake was to die for! (one piece enough to share with 2 or 3 people!) and the 'towering flame' for the birthday celebration was special.

Mario's is #1
Mario's is my go to place for lunch and dinner. It never disappoints - food, service, buzz - all good.
Wonderful for out-of town guests; they always love it.
