The menu had great options and the meal was fantastic. Everyone ordered filets and they arrived at the perfect amount of doneness that was requested. Waiter was personable, knowledgeable, and kept a good pace.

Only problem was noise level. Difficult to maintain a serious conversation around the table without speaking loudly.

Malio’s Is always a good alternative when looking for a great steak or Italian specialties. The service is prompt but not invasive. Ribeye was cooked perfectly. Blue crab pasta was awesome. Try the lobster escargot for a great appetizer.

Malio's was very good. The decor was very elegant and well kept. The wait staff was very polite and generally very attentive, but we were handed off a couple of times throughout he evening and really didn't understand who the lead waiter was. The BIGGEST downfall is the UNNECESSARY kitchen noise. We were sitting nearest the hostest stand and the noise coming from the kitchen non-stop was deafening. Dishes were clearly being stacked and cleaned along with silverwear. A simple door or curtail between that area and the patrons would make a HUGE difference. This was a Saturday night at about 8pm. It wasn't like it was closing time. Again, the food was fantastic and we tried items from all over the menu. Quiet the place down and it would be a real gem.

First time in Tampa and was looking for an amazing steakhouse. After having googled Malios and making my reservation, I was then told to go to Burns. Well I stuck with Malios and certainly didn't regret it. The food is wonderful as is the service. And it was walking distance to the Amelie Arena and from our hotel downtown. Thank you Malios ! You were perfect !

The bar noise was rather loud so they seated up in a booth and it was very nice. The food was delicious and our waiter, Ben, was just attentive enough. The restaurant surprised us with a desert to celebrate our anniversary. All in all, we will definitely make the drive from Lakeland again.

Due to the time of year, our second visit was very disappointing. No nice booth by a window, no quiet conversations, no attentive servers.... : ( We brought 2 friends to show them the Malio's experience, but apologized for the experience instead. Will remember to stay away during party season! If you can not provide the type of experience you usually offer, maybe you should consider taking less reservation or less parties.

It was just ok. The service was terrific. The food was average . I wouldn't run back there. The portions were horrible for the price. If you are going to charge $$$ or more, the portions should match. We tried the steaks and the Ahi Tuna. If it wasn't for the service I would give a 1 star. Sorry but its true

Malio's is a great place for dinner. It is regular date night for my husband and me. We tried a different dessert on Saturday night - "ice-cream sandwich". I do not recommend it. The cookies on the outside were so hard you couldn't cut them with a knife. This is the only item we have every had at Malio's that has not been exceptional. We will still be regulars at Malio's - but we will never order this dessert again.

Malio’s was an all round wonderful experience! My father who nearly died about a month ago was able to travel to Tampa to see Andre Rieu (bucket list item for him). He and his beloved raved about the Sea Bass, the shrimp Theresa (oh that sauce!) and the kindness of the staff. The dinner and the show were a perfect evening for them! Thank you.

While in Tampa for four days at a convention we ate at 3 different high end restaurants. Mario's did not rate close to the experience and value of the other two. There was sort of a tired indifference to the execution at Mario's. The restaurant is dark and formal. A good place for quit conversation. We went for long periods without seeing our waiter. Given our location in a curved section of tables we were very isolated. By the glass wines were ordinary, sent the first back. Food was heavy and lackluster. Server did not know how to support our experience. Moved a table set-up from 4 to 2 sets by removing tableware but did not reset the remaining place settings. By reference I would give our experience at Roy's a 95, at Charlie's a 90, and I would struggle to give Mario's a 70. We came away excited about our other experiences, they were "fun" from a culinary perspective. Mario's was a slog where we regretted the time invested let alone the bill for what was delivered.
