Was looking for a place for lunch after taking my friend to a Drs appointment in Willoughby and boy did we hit the jackpot! This is a true Italian gem - absolutely wonderful service - tried the special cavatelli with tomato meat sauce and veal meatballs and thought I was back in Italy - really good salad and a slice of cassata cake too - great value- we will definitely be back!!

Dinner was wonderful & relaxing. Polenta wasn't on menu but they made it special for my granddaughter. It was delicious. We had Heavenly Pasta and Eggplant Terrine. Both were excellent. Service was attentive. The house salad is creative and good. Very friendly staff. Looking forward to my next visit.

We were greeted as soon as we walked in. We made a reservation , so we were seated right away. I noticed a perfume odor as we walked to our table...weird...wasn’t sure if it was from the customers or the restaurant. I think the restaurant was trying to deodorize the carpeting. Terrible idea. That’s all I smelled while I was eating. Ok, that’s my only complaint. They start you off with garlic bread—delicious. I had the chicken parmigiana with pasta—delicious!! I also had a salad with their house dressing—delicious! My spouse had wedding soup to start—delicious. The entree was the special, breaded chicken strips with asparagus over pasta. It was good, although the asparagus was really skinny. We ended with coffee & complimentary cassata cake. Our server was awesome!! She was very friendly and attentive. I would recommend this restaurant.

Excellent service and the food was outstanding. Was greeted by staff and was promptly seated. Ordered the appetizer du jour and the owner Lisa stopped by the table and assisted in serving the whole table. The meals were fresh and hot and of generous portions.

Always excellent. Lisa has continued, and if possible, improved all aspects of the restaurant. All food, from specials to menu to deserts are always perfect. This last Saturday they were running behind a bit on our reservation and there was Lisa with a glass of wine for each of us...doesn't get any better...they treat their customers well. Service is always top notch and they are always busy from open to close....why? Because the food is just damn good!!!!!!

Omg! Amazing! Fantastic food, fantastic service, such a happy & convivial vibe throughout. There’s a reason the place is packed! Owner is on premises & so gracious, & her ample team lives up to owner’s high standards. Service is exceptional, as is food. Authentic Italian (good luck making your choice of meals! But you can’t make a mistake). Our group of 9 each was delighted with our dinners.

The ambience is warm & happy. It feel like everyone in the restaurant is celebrating life.

Congratulations to owner Lisa Fazio, for graciously & successfully building on her father’s legacy.

It was excellent, the people were great and the lemon chicken is fantastic. The only thing they should consider is lower level lighting. It’s been around for a long time and it shows, but

Lisa Fazio and her dedicated and energetic crew never fail to impress. The cuisine is delightfully Italian, with a creative flair. Everything I have ever ordered had been delicious and fresh; I have been coming to Mario Fazio's for 15 years, and have never had a complaint. The service is attentive and efficient. Decor is warm and comfortable Tuscan. You can't lose dining at Mario Fazio's!

I took my friend for her birthday. This was our first time there. She had a yearning for fettuccine Alfredo, which was not on the menu but they made from scratch! The wait staff were extremely friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable, and professional. They sang “happy birthday “ with me!
