Staff was so friendly and accommodating. Absolutely the best meal we ever have had on Authur Avenue. Top dishes of the evening were the manicotti and the orange roughy...both so flavorful and prepared perfectly. Definitely planning on coming back next time in town!

Overcrowded with very bland tasting food. It took 45 minutes for them to bring us our appetizers. It took over a 1/2 hour to retrieve our car from the valet. I won’t be visiting that restaurant any time soon again.

It was our first time at the Mario's. Ever part of the evening was enjoyable. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive, the food was delicious and the bus boy was entertaining. I would definitely return again. I liked that I could make a reservation and when I got there, the table was ready.

Mario's is an Arthur Ave institution. Very good northern Italian food. Very much a neighborhood spot. The saltimbocca is terrific, and the pasta al dente. Have a cocktail, the pour is great.

This was not one of the best times at Mario’s. The place was very crowded and people were on top of each other. The waiter was sweet but the bus boys were clumsy. Portions were small, but the food was good. Maybe it was a bad night

Mario’s serves the best Italian food on Arthur Avenue. The dining room is not upscale, but this restaurant is the real deal, old style Italian fare. We were there on a Saturday night and the place was bustling with energy and delicious smells. The noise level was very high, and the service could have been faster, but if you’re looking for excellent traditional Italian dishes, you can’t beat Mario’s. And the valet parking comes in handy on crowded Arthur Avenue.

We got there half hour early and our table was already ready. We sat down we were greeted with a couple of servers . Always a smile and happy Italian attitude. Food was reflected the outstanding service. Lamb Chops, Chicken Parm and my Ravioli were amazing. We were a party of 7 people, we asked about dessert, he made us an off the menu platter of canoli, tira masu, ice cream. The entire experience was very well orchestrated. Thank you to team of Mario's.

Very crowded restaurant and service was civil, not friendly. Food was pretty bad. Stuffed artichoke was the worst I’ve ever had; over cooked and soggy with no flavor. Disappointing. Positives: dinner was slowly paced and not rushed. Busboys were efficient with water, bread, etc. generous pours on drinks were appreciated.

Haven't been to Mario's in so many years. So glad we went back. It beats any other restaurant in the Arthur Avenue area. The food is fabulous, even the bread. I had the veal parmigiana. The sauce was superlative. My husband had the veal Marsala and loved it. Tiramisu was one of the best that we have eaten, even including Italy.
You must try their cappuccino - so fantastic.
Loved our waiter, Blendi. Hope we get him again.
We are now convinced that we would rather go to Mario's than go to the overpriced and overrated restaurants in Manhattan. True that there are some good ones but they are few and far between.
This is a sure bet!

The ambiance is nice, Mario's is decorated with warm lighting and the noise is always at a low chatter. The dishes were good, but their Spiedini alla Romana was amazing. And the bread was warm. Always a good sign.
