After a wonderful day at Moody Gardens we wanted to find a good restaurant somewhere else on the island. We went to Mario’s and had a fabulous dinner. We got a cheese pizza for an appetizer, Rachel C helped me select the grouper for my entree. My family of four all had excellent entrees. My son ordered from the kids menu and it was delicious (chicken fingers with spaghetti instead of fries). I separate the great from the good restaurants based on the quality of their kids menus. And then we went for dessert. The Italian cream cake was fantastic. I think the cannoli was great too but my wife wouldn’t let me try it. My kids split the cheesecake and enjoyed it but I would stick with the Italian desserts. It was a long, leasurely dinner. We will be back on our next visit.

The food was absolutely delicious and our server, Rachael C., was so helpful and knowledgeable about every part of the menu. From start to finish, we were taken care of with quality service. The manager hacked on us numerous times as well. The whole staff couldn’t have given us a better experience!! We will definitely be back!

We showed up with a party of 10 without a reservation which is always “iffy”!
The Mario’s team quickly set up a table and got us seated within 5 minutes. Let me add that we had a 3 and 7 yo with us and some picky adult eaters.
Our waitress, Rachael C was amazing. She made some recommendations for appetizers and quickly got the drinks out for the kids(with lids-thank you so much)
The pizza was amazing as were the Viva Italy, Pasta’s, citrus Shrimp salad and the kids meals. Rachael was very attentive, funny, patient and helpful. She is a true asset to Mario’s.
The kids finished up with some amazing Gelato but the adults were stuffed.
Thank you for a wonderful meal and family experience.

Had a late dinner with a big family group. Mario's was able handle our orders well
Our server was friendly and helped
She made good recommendations about pizza and wine. Some in our group had seafood, some had traditional Italian, others pizza. All were good. Lots of options, both classic and contemporary. Highly Recommended!

After an 8 hour drive, we were ready to sit down for a nice meal. The hostess sat us right away and our waiter, Julian was very nice. Although it's authentic Italian, it wasn't too pricey. About $15 per entree, and $16 for a pizza that our kids split. We weren't dressed up at all, but felt comfortable and welcomed by staff. The fettuccine/lasagne/chicken parmigiana trio was amazing and we enjoyed our relaxing meal.
