Mario's Pizza & Italian Restaurant
Michael R. Ingelsby
First time visit to Mario's on an impressive $20 voucher received in the mail. My spouse and I went for Sunday brunch after church which was appealing that they offered a special menu for such. The prices at the restaurant were slightly higher than what was previously observed on the web. For some reason, our server felt that the grits served there were not worth ordering, so I didn't get to sample my favorite breakfast food there. However, the donut holes made onsite surely made up for that little snafoo! My spouse enjoyed her Shrimp Benedict, which was a win too. My western omelet was also very good and loaded with freshly cut ingredients relative to the item. Downside was it is a bit pricey for a basic Sunday brunch menu. If you are looking for an establishment with plenty of immediate seating and don't mind paying full retail of approximately $50 per couple, it may be worth treating yourself to trying a new place. We may be back for a special occasion to sample their dinner options!
First time here for my wife and I. The menu looked a little pricey, but quality usually is. They sat us with garlic knots and marinara, they were so good. We tried the brick oven pizza on special, fig and prosciutto and the margheritta. I really liked both of them, my wife not so much. Excellent service, we will be back
Last night was our first time to Marios in Matthews! Their outdoor patio was a great space for a gathering. We did get good service. It was nice to have our time to chat and socialize with friends we havent seen in a while, without being rushed. They have an extensive menu, and their beer selections were good as well. Of the two appetizers we ordered, the fried ravioli was a little over fried, but the fried calamari was perfectly done. No bread was brought to the table even after it was requested. An oversight? Everyone was happy with their main entrees. The spring salad with the candied walnuts and goat cheese, to which I added the blackened shrimp, was perfect. We ordered several desserts to the table. Creme brle, tiramisu, and limoncello gelato. All were equally delicious, though the limoncello gelato was perfectly light and tangy for a warm evening. It was a very pleasant dining experience. We will definitely be back.
This was our first visit. We were seated right away. Mason S was our server. He was excellent. The food was tasty. We had Lasagna, pizza, ravioli and seafood fra Diablo. Everything was great. The place was clean and the Cannolis were yummy! I highly recommend this place.
The ambiance and Food was amazing. We ordered a variety of dishes and appetizers and they were great. The only thing that was off was service. Our server seemed like she was in a hurry, there were no proper greetings, no general courtesy of going over the Menu items, specials etc. If we take a pause of a few seconds while ordering, the server mistook it as our order is done. My only suggestion is just be ready with your order before arrival (in case you get the same server) and be prepared for a special treat for your taste buds!
