Our family of ten went here spur of the moment without a reservation. We waited around one hour. This was not bad at all for a Saturday night. The food was great. If you have never tried calamari try it here, very tender light coating. My son-in- law got the calzone, it was huge, two people could share. The red sauce was house made. Four people in our group shared a pizza. We will defiantly be back next time we cruise out of Galveston. They also serve desserts and ice cream. We did not have room super sad about that. Maybe next time we will order dessert first.

We tried this because it was highly rated by Trip Advisor, and it was even better than we expected. It definitely deserves all 5 stars. My husband had lobster ravioli with the tomato sauce and I had the vegetarian calzone, with pepperoni added. Sounds ordinary, but the seasoning or the quality of the ingredients ... whatever the difference, the favors all combined to be extraordinary. The atmosphere was nice with view of the sea from most windows. The service was great, too. Ask for Rachael C. She was a very friendly and a great source of information for us. Also, there are other Mario's restaurants in town, with different owners. We don't know about the others, but the one with Seawall in it's name is great!!

We went here for a late lunch/early dinner today. I ordered chicken piccata and my husband had their buffet. We both enjoyed our meals. Very tasty! We were served by a sweet young lady named Erin. She anticipated our needs and was very quick.

My wife really enjoyed her food. I had spaghetti and sausage. The sausage was "made in house". I did not like it. I much prefer the sausage in other Italian restaurants. The service was excellent.
