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!!
Great service, excellent food, and a fantastic value. One of my favorite spots.
Mario Fazio's is always a great place to eat. Food is delicious and the servers are friendly and accommodating.
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.
Excellent as usual across the board...have never been disappointed
Service was very friendly and attentive. Food was very good. My girlfriend loves Italian food and really enjoyed her meal. Place has a really nice vibe.
Delicious food, fantastic service!
As always, Lisa and her staff are amazing and kind. Always friendly and happy to help. We love to go and have a wonderful HUGE meal with leftovers to take home. Thanks Lisa and Nicki for a great dinner.
Great Italian food. Great service.very friendly. Good value.
This restaurant does everything right except the food. Fresh flowers, lovely artwork, great service but the food was bland and tasteless although beautifully presented.
Generous portions of classic Italian favorites. The Italian wedding soup is authentic and not to be missed. Friendly and attentive service.
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.
I have always had a great experience at Mario Fazio's. If you want great Italian food then this is the place. Great service, attentive staff and every dish I have tried is a treat.
We were in the area & my coworker recommended this place for dinner.
Great service and great food! We went there for a special occasion and loved it and came back a couple weeks later and they remembered us. The food is amazing!
Wonderful as always!
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!!!!!!
Went for a date. Food and service were amazing! Will come back!
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.
Superb food selection ; great service
Lisa and her staff are always wonderful . The food is always delicious.
This is truly a neighborhood gem. The food is always excellent and the staff is the best around. Other establishments should take a lesson from the staff there on how to treat patrons!!!
Always a fantastic experience, can’t wait to go back!
Wonderful effort to tailor my food to my preferences.
Mario's is always wonderful, and our dinner tonight was no exception.
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
I’ll be back
Never disappoints. Food was great as always and so was the service. A++
Consistently excellent food and great service!!!!!
crowded, need reservation, large good tasting portions of food. excellent attentive friendly wait staff.good value for the money.
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!
Food is consistent with fresh ingredients. The pear Bellini is refreshing and unique. Service is always excellent!
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!
I will definitely go back!
We celebrated our 30th anniversary with an enjoyable dinner at Mario Fazio’s. The Heavenly Pasta dish lived up to its divine name! The slice of Cassata Cake was a perfect finish. Alexis provided friendly, superb service.
The food is excellent. All fresh, nicely prepared and elegantly served. Prices are moderate and served enough to take some home. The flash fried calamari is outstanding...and huge.
Good food with generous portions. You will often end up taking some home! Mario's House Salad comes with most entrees and is unique and delicious. Overall a great dining experience.
Mario Fazio’s is a gem. Not to fancy, but the best Italian food around. We drive 45 minutes to go there. The staff is so nice and friendly. If you want great food, good prices, and fantastic staff, give Mario Fazio’s a try
Enjoyed 'Lisa's Salad'. Loved the greens, lightly candied walnuts, berries and grapes. The accompanying vinegrette was perfect.
Excellent meal in lovely establishment
