Service spotty, waiter took 3 appetizer orders from our party of 6, then completely forgot 1 of the 3, disavowing that we'd stated the order to him. While under-servers were energetic and responsive, our waiter can only be described as lethargic. He delivered the forgotten artichoke with our entrees instructing us to 'pick on it.' I order the mussels marinara - the last several were gritty and strung through with the tough byssal threads.

We had a delicious meal from start to finish at Mario's. From the waiter's recommendation for wine, to the appetizers and main entrée, everything was great. It was loud, but not overwhelming and everyone was very friendly. Would definitely recommend!

Love Arthur Avenue but Mario's didn't live up to the hype for me. They ran out of the special by 6pm, which is definitely poor planning. My brother in law asked if they could make a carbonara, which they said would be no problem. When it came it was essentially scrambled eggs with pancetta over pasta. It was awful. The waiter could have cared less. The highlights were the wine was good, bread was nice crunchy Italian bread, red sauce was delicious and the cannoli was very good-fresh cream and crunchy shell. This was a one and done for me.

After a visit to the New York Botanical Garden train show, a late lunch at Mario's was perfect. The service was attentive and friendly, the menu had all you could want and the food was delicious -- authentic, fresh and so tasty. They treated us like family and made for a perfect ending to a wonderful day.

We’ve been coming to Mario’s for almost 20 years. We love everything about the restaurant! We have had parties here and our oldest daughter got married here! The food is always on point! I have and will continue to recommend Mario’s to family and friends.

Mario's had changed its wine list and menu since our last visit. The Cabernet Sauvignon that we used to order was unavailable, as well as another wine that my husband requested from the new list. Instead, we ordered Montepulchiano, which was pretty good.

Our pizza appetizer was hot and tasty.
The orange roughy oreganata was good.
Linguine with garlic and oil and broccoli rabe needed more broccoli rabe, but it tasted good.
We liked best the penne siciliano.

With all the hype about Marios I was anticipating an awesome dining experience. Here is how our experience played out..... antipasto was great...chicken marsala was pretty good, chicken parm was ok, and my veal parm was very disappointing. Barely any sauce on top,and the extremely small bit of mozzarella was horrible, and the whole dish was very dried out..... not impressed at all.

Mario's is a basic, red sauce, Arthur Avenue Italian-American restaurant with the added perks of free valet parking and that they take reservations on OpenTable. We had the misfortune of being there on a day of a Fordham home game and the place was packed and noisy, so the restaurant didn't get to show it's best. The service was rushed and the waiter didn't have the opportunity to be attentive until we were having coffee and the place was less crazy. There were no specials, even though it was a Saturday night, so review the menu online before making up your mind. The food was good, but not very interesting.

We would go there again and recommend it!

Food was incredible! Large portions and delicious. The four of us all ordered different entrees.
Each of us being very full and satisfied! Timing throughout was perfect. Did not feel rushed or wait too long for our appetizer or entrée. Overall; Great experience and would definitely return!

Great authentic Italian restaurant serving southern Italian food located right on Arthur Avenue in the Bronx. I recommend sharing appetizers and as as your entree, the homemade pastas. Service was exceptional even though the place was extremely busy. A fun restaurant, either to celebrate a special occasion or just for everyday dining.

Sorry but this is yet another Italian restaurant we have tried on Arthur Ave. Ian's have been disappointed with. I am from the UES in NYC and went there because we stayed for the evening show of the Chihully at the NY Botanical Gardens. The dinner special was a great buy, but the food was awful. I could not eat the sole scampi and the stuffed peppers were very mediocre. Our waiter seems tired but was nice enough. Will not return.

Lobster ravioli was very good as was the Ceasar salad. Linguini with clam sauce was good, could have used a few whole clams on top... Wine was expensive, Cosmo was excellent. Waiter was very attentive and brought over a bottle of wine to help keep the price down.
