As always, Lisa and our waitress Maryann made this a special occasion. This trip was for a birthday dinner and we went here because it is my wife's favorite restaurant. The food and service are always outstanding
and the value for the money is terrific. The portions are large so there is always something taken home to enjoy the next day. A truly fantastic place.
My son was in town so we had a family reunion of sorts. The group of 8 had Mary Ann to take care of us and she treated us like royalty. Perfect timing with refills on water and drinks and brought our food out at a nice pace so we could enjoy the course and chat instead of being rushed with the next course. The food was excellent! Terrific Italian fare. We we're greatly pleased with this meal and had a nice relaxing dinner. Portions are fairly large.
The food was very mediocre; not nearly as good as other Italian eateries in the general area. It was very bland with little seasoning, and the noise was so loud you could not talk to the others in your party and we only had 3 people.
As always Lisa and her staff at Mario Fazios did a remarkable job. From the moment we walked in to the time we paid our bill, the smiles were everywhere. Food was plentiful and tasty. Definitely a gem.
All 4 of us ordered different meals and we were all extremely satisfied, as usual!
Fantastic service! Wonderful food! Great place to take kids
Mario Fazio is a very friendly place, from the moment you walk in to the conclusion of your meal. Food is good traditional Italian and the portions are generous. Atmosphere is bright and cheerful. I imagine that it a regular place to go for a lot of people. Even midweek was moderately crowded.
The food is always just great! Lisa (owner) is unique in her approach to making people feel welcomed and appreciated... she's modeled that style for her employees. A complimentary slice of pizza was offered as an appetizer, her Dry Rob Roy was outstanding and the complimentary cased cake was the perfect finish to a really enjoyable meal!
We always have a great meal here. Great service and great food.
The food is always outstanding. The service impeccable, many of the servers have been there for years and if you're not certain what to get they will help and their recommendations are always spot on. Never disappointed.
No wonder this restaurant is consistently at the top of the charts...great food...family atmosphere...friendly staff. Plenty of entrees to choose from, sauces are scrumptious!
This was our first time here & we were so impressed. Not only was the food delicious but the service/server was also great. It was a great first impression, we will be back.
A wonderful dinner as always. It was a birthday celebration for two of us and they surprised us with the most amazing cupcakes and sang to us too. A great night with amazing food as always.
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.
Fabulous service and food!!
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!
