LOOKING FOR THAT
COZY ITALIAN RESTAURANT...
YOU FOUND IT!

"Even though it is nestled in a gold coast highrise and sounds high style, Mario's Ristorante exudes more warmth than a convention of Italian grandmas. The friendly staff aims to please, and so do the pastas, salads, and boneless chicken vesuvio…"

I saw the reviews for Mario's on the Open Table site and we found the positive ratings to be very true. The service was really great; everyone was friendly from the people who bussed the tables to the people who waited on you. Mario visited our table 3 times. He along with our waitress recommended the tiramisu and it was probably the best tiramisu my husband and I have had at a restaurant. The food was very tasty and the ambiance was comfortable. This was our first time and we will definitely go back. If I have to express disappointment over anything, it was that I had marked this as a birthday celebration when I made the reservation and no one even acknowledged that it was my husband's birthday.

Love Mario’s! I grew up in Chicago but I’ve lived in NY now for 15 years. Every time I come to visit my mom we go to Mario’s. It’s the perfect restaurant! Food is delicious. Service is wonderful. Ambiance is warm and lively. I just love coming here. I wish we had a Mario’s back in my hood on Long Island! 5 stars. 😊

We were seated right away, greeted by Mario, served as much bread as we wanted, had a fantastic waitress, received the food promptly, and everything tasted great. I love this spot and absolutely will be coming back soon!

Mario's is ALWAYS worth the trip even if we live in the neighborhood. I made a mistake with the time on the reservation and it didn't ruffle the great staff a bit. Experience was (as always) great and thanks to the receptionists who worked things out.

So the owner was very cordial and server was helpful, food was subpar, had mussels half of them were empty and very small. Had the sea bass lacked flavor and was nothing special.

Fabulous meal at Marios! I had their special fish of the day and my husband had eggplant parmigiano. Started with the combo grilled and fried calamari. So good! Bartender recommended a Petit Syrah which we loved. Mario and his staff are so welcoming and

A great spot for my Italian friend crew. We need a spot that accommodates vegetarian, gluten free, & classic Italian purists. This one knocked it out of the park. I enjoyed the bolognese, the table enjoyed the burrata appetizer, & the reviews from the gluten free & vegetarian contingent were all positive.

We went to Mario’s to celebrate two birthdays. The staff was great, we had a nice bottle of wine before dinner and the food was very good. Mario stopped by twice to see how everything was. If we lived closer, we would definitely stop in frequently.

We’re from California and we’re staying in the Gold Coast neighborhood. We were looking for a neighborhood Italian restaurant that we could walk to. Someone recommended Mario’s Table and it exceeded our expectations. We have gone there twice in the last 2 months. The food and service were excellent!!! We intend to go back a few more times before we go back to California.

We always enjoy the convenience and ambiance, as we live next door. We get especially great service from Karen, who is a real pro! We frequently order the dinner specials and wine specials, and are never disappointed. The entire staff is very service oriented. The busboys are attentive, and Mario always "makes the rounds" to make sure it is done right!

The food and conversation is always good at Mario's.
This is a nice neighborhood spot which always is busy and delivers friendly Italian fare in a cozy setting. Mario is always present to welcome guests. I recommend this highly for weekday dinners and weekends with friends in a lowkey environment.
