    Mario's is certainly among the best Italian restaurants in NYC, not just the Bronx. I have been going there for years and they always please! This visit our family party went old school and enjoyed quality fried calamari; shrimp cocktail; veal parm; chicken parm; eggplant parm; and spaghetti and meatballs for the kids. But there is far more on the menu. Trust me when I tell you they make a splendid gnocchi and veal chop saltimbocca. I cannot recommend this restaurant strongly enough!

    Post-football dinner on Arthur Ave. on a Saturday night. Food was great, staff a little taxed as the evening wore on but up to the task. We'll certainly visit again.

    Menu has a wide selection of all the classics. Wine list is not large but has many choices of good value. Calamari batter was to perfection as was the marinara sauce. The pizza was delicious, crust was crisp and tasty. The sausage and peppers was delicious. The eggplant parmigiana was a little lacking in flavor but was OK. The wait staff was excellent and the table service was very good.

    Took over 2 hours to get food. Never in 50 years of going here has the service been so slow. Had to ask waiter where our food was over 8 times. Owner complained of rush after the Yankee game as if that has happened for the past 100 years. Owner complained of extra patrons because of outdoor patio. So limit reservations to what your kitchen can handle. No excuse. Gave me a lemincello as it that was worth 2 hours of sitting there waiting for dinner.

    The place was overrated, have had much better italian food elsewhere. Salad had too much dressing and too tart and Veal was tough, not tender. i like Veal that you can cut with a fork, would not return and the price was high.

    We had never been up to Arthur Avenue and decided to make an outing up to Mario’s. We weren’t disappointed- the food was delicious- the red sauce has a lot of depth-and the service was impeccable. How good was it? About a third of diners had come from the Yankees’ shut-out game. But nobody was complaining - everyone was enjoying a great Italian meal together. Thank you, Mario’s!

    I really wanted to love this place. The waiter was fabulous, attentive. We arrived at about 5pm so it wasn't crowded. They immediately got us water and bread with a nice dish of pickled carrots. The calamari was fresh and the burrata was very fresh and tasty. My family liked their food, veal scalloppini and rigatoni with vodka sauce. I had chicken parmesan, which was a little dry. The sauce was thick and a little too much like paste. And the cheese was a smaller slice of mozzarella that did not cover the chicken. I would have liked to have had a thicker cut of chicken so it retained a bit of moisture. And the sauce needed to be a bit saucier. And if you are getting parmesan, the cheese needs to cover the chicken completely. Again, I really wanted to love this place, but I just liked it.

    The only disappointment was that we learned that they weren't serving their excellent pizza, which recently almost brought a friend to tears, because it was Fordham's graduation. I had been looking forward to it, and I feel bad for all of the Fordham grads who wanted to share it with their families. But everyone at Mario's is great, so my friends and I still had a great time, and it will keep being the place I recommend for a meal before or after events at the botanical garden.

    A first time visit to this Arthur Ave staple and ultimately a disappointing experience. It was not even a quarter full on a Friday evening, although the entire block seemed empty when we walked a bit after our dinner. The service was very good -- pleasant and professional, and the prices fair. But with the exception of my eggplant parmigian, which was good, the other dishes were just fair and swimming in sauce. Salads were a nice size and the bread was good, but the overall food quality and old school menu were not enough to entice us back.

    Always outstanding food and service. My wife always orders an excellent shrimp parm (off the menu). And the veal parm is also delicious. Get broccoli rabe on the side and a bottle of Nero D'Avolo for a complete meal. BUt many other excellent menu items including gnocchi and a truly outstanding pizza. The owner and wait staff are all warm, friendly, congenial, and helpful. Go there to experience NYC's true Little Italy in the Bronx on Arthur Avenue. Enjoy!
