Went there with our two teenage boys to celebrate one of their birthdays. They ate to their hearts' content! From the beginning, the bread was warm and rich in flavor. We had burratta and croquetes for appetizers that were delicious. For main dishes, we went for traditional things like Veal parmigiana and chicken cacciatore. We also ordered rigatoni alla vodka,...

My husband and I visited Mario's on our shopping spree to Arthur ave. They had a great lunch special with a variety of choices. Our waiter Joseph was attentive and very friendly. Try the potato croquettes which are an old family recipe and delicious. Will definitely return on our next visit.

If you would like to have a fabulous meal with family and/or friends put this on your list. This place has been around since 1919. You need a reservation if you don't want to wait. Staff is friendly and attentive. Prices are very reasonable. Little noisy ...but the food made it worthwhile. It has a full bar and you can... More

Went here on a Saturday night (MAKE RESERVATIONS!) with two other couples. One member of our party uses a wheelchair and they couldn't have been more accommodating even though we were there for dinner on Saturday night. Friendly greeting, like family, short wait for our table to be ready, valet parking, friendly wait staff. Everyone at our table loved their... More

I went here with 7 other gal pals for lunch. The specials are a great bargain and the wine list, while not extensive, has some good values. Try the Montepulciano! We started with a platter of appetizers for the table which was fabulous (a platter for 6 is plenty for 8 people). All of the lunch specials were delicious and... More

Went to Mario's on Arthur Ave in the Bronx last night. It was Parents Weekend at Fordham University, but we got a reservation. Seated promptly. Had the valet take care of our car since parking on Arthur Ave on a Saturday night is a challenge. Even though the restaurant was busy, our service was prompt and courteous. Started with some...

The burrata, octopus salad, veal parm, swordfish , spag and meatballs, shrimp fradiavlo and The eggplant parm. Yummy. Dessert was good as well. Great cappacino and spot on canolli. The staff was sweet. No complaints from a... More

One of the reasons I love Marios is that it has kept the Italian country side style. I met a friend there and she was very early. They invited her in, even though they were not yet open as it was hot outside. We don't order an appetizer because their olive bread is over the top delicious, with large pieces... More

After a great day spent with family at Central Park, we decided we should go to Arthur Ave and so we picked Mario's ,we regret saying that once we got in. when we got seated Mario was fighting with one of the waiters and Mario didn't even greet us when we got seated. Our waiter was very kind. We ordered... More
