My wife & I visited Mario's for a Saturday lunch, based on a strong recommendation from a friend who grew up in Dubuque & on favorable reviews here. We were greeted by a friendly server, who told us to sit wherever we'd like. Her subsequent table side service was attentive & efficient without being intrusive. All of the restaurant staff... More

Great place for lunch or dinner. Enjoyable for couples or families. One of my daughters favorite places to eat! Authentic Italian food! Has a nice party room in lower level. Highly recommend.

OK, why do we go get Italian? Salad? No. Fish? Nope. Beer and a Brat? Naw. Italian means Sauce. Sauce and everything that's good in the world blanketed in Red Sauce and God's own herbs, garlic, olive oil....... You can close your eyes, and slowly savor this sauce like your first wet kiss on a hot Summer night. Yep! It's... More

Mario greeted our party of 7 when we arrived. Had a couple of coctails at the bar for starters. Good, friendly bar service. Reservations accepted for tables of 5 or more. Marios was not too packed. Ordered salads and they were quick. Panzerotti deluxe was huge......and tastey. Veal was very good. I suggest a visit to this local, small neighborhood... More

Been a customer for over 30 years, great food preparation and quality and portions (though over time veal has reduced to keep overall meal price down). Atmosphere is authentic 1960's, wish they used cloth napkins, and only item that keeps from a 5 is prices of drinks a little high in overall market for quantity. Always a joy to eat... More
