We had a wonderful time ! Everything was great from the service to our meals. We had 3 different things , a pasta , a veal and a chicken dish and they were all outstanding . As a pasta person , I particularly loved how you could build your own pasta dish including picking the type of pasta and how you wanted it prepared .
Definitely recommend !

Always a fun place to visit on Arthur Avenue. Tasty, traditional Italian food served by attentive waiters in an old fashioned restaurant. Neapolitan Cod was excellent.

We dined at Mario’s to celebrate a birthday! They made us feel very special. We dined outside and the ambiance was great. The adult food was outstanding. Just slightly disappointed in the kids meals…too much food for my kids and way too pricey for spaghetti. Plus they added Italian spices which turned off my kids. Sometimes it easier just to serve simple items to kids. ;) but that might just be us! Would definitely go back and just order one adult meal for my kids to share. :)

We were a party of 6. We all loved everything. The waiter was very attentive and there was plenty if Staff to assist. We had the appetizer sampler and a calamari plate both was amazing.
Everyone had a different dinner and no one was dissapointed. Then the desserts topped off the meal.

Amazing Italian food. We had the special pasta with seafood it was extraordinary. My guest wanted it with a different sauce no problem they were happy to accomadate whatever she wanted. The ambiance is 1950's Bronx. It is like being in a Scorsese film. The food is to die for. The service was so warm and welcoming like being with family. Very large portions. The pasta dish was enough for two. In fact it would have made a nice appetizer for four. My only regret was that we did not order the pizza.

Could not be more perfect. Everything was done to its absolute best. There is no better Italian food outside Italy than in New York. And there is no better Italian food in NY than Mario’s.

Spiedini was awesome, food was otherwise mediocre (linguine vongole, spaghetti pesto, rapini, string beans, others I'm forgetting). Service was solid. Food came out quick for our 3 year old, which is great, but we sat at 445 and didn't finish paying check until 7. No matter how busy you are, needs to be faster than 30+ minutes between courses. Fine for what it is, not in a hurry to return.

We had a large group (party of 10) to celebrate our daughter’s college graduation. The owner couldn’t have been nicer—especially since I had to call twice to increase the number of our party! Calamari appetizer was outstanding. Caprese salad featured excellent cheese but the tomatoes were anemic. Everyone was very happy with their entrees. A lovely lunch and I would recommend.

Service is always excellent. Warm inviting atmosphere. Owner greets you like family. Fried calamari was excellent. Eggplant rollatini was delicious. One of the best cups of coffee I’ve enjoyed. There’s a private lot for parking a block away and Mario’s validates parking.
