We stopped in and it was toward the end of the lunch buffet. We were advised that it was ending soon so didn't expect things to be super fresh. The salad bar was decent size. The pizza was ok and some of the pasta dishes...More

Having been to Italy many times, I'm always searching for something that comes close to being there. Mario's does not disappoint. I loved the traditional Italian menu as well as the Texas version. My entire group was super happy with the service and the selection!

Our family of six felt right at home. Arnold was one of the best servers we’ve ever had. The food was delicious and the gelato was the perfect end to a wonderful dining experience. Bravo!

We tried the regular crust and Chicago deep dish, enjoyed both. Gelato is good as well! Lunch time was not busy but evening was pretty busy about 30 minutes waiting.

The food was ok. We had lasagna and pizza. We had to ask for bread twice, but it was good! The service was a bit slow, but if you’re not in a hurry that shouldn’t matter.
