    My husband and I used to go here when we lived in the area about 30 years ago. It was our Anniversary so we decided to take the hour drive. Nothing changed. Of course, decor was updated but the food was phenomenal! We loved celebrating there. Thank you Lisa! We will be back soon. You are definitely worth the ride!

    I never had bad food or service at Mario Fazio's. Everything was great as usual! There was a party the day we were there for lunch, but the noise wasn't too bad. We were in a back corner booth, the farthest away that we could be. My friend and I were celebrating her birthday. Our waitress brought out a cassata cupcake with a candle in it and sang "Happy Birthday" to her. It couldn't have been a better birthday lunch!

    We have dined here numerous times with both small groups and larger ones. We are always greeted warmly upon arrival and taken to a table that is agreeable to all. The servers are friendly and knowledgeable about the many food choices. And there are many specials. Our dishes ranged from a big salad to chicken Marsala to a couple of pasta dishes. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their dinners and we all had another serving to take home. The unexpected pizza appetizer and dessert cassata cake were wonderful. Love the background music, which makes a nice atmosphere to linger and enjoy.

    Terrific service and really good food. 8 people from various out-of-town locations met here for dinner before a show at FAA Auditorium in nearby Willoughby. First time for all of us - picked this restaurant based on location and reviews. All aspects of the dining experience were top notch, and with the number of people waiting to be seated when we left we all realized how lucky we were to have chosen this venue without prior knowledge.
