Looking for a family dinner with two hard-to-please teenagers- one vegetarian and a very picky eater. Our vegetarian had great truffle mac and cheese. Picky eater had chicken parme, and I had chicken marsala -- all great. Bonus - my wife and I loved the Italian margaritas!

We were just staying in State College for one night, and were searching for a restaurant on a Sunday night where we could have a good meal and dine pleasantly. In a college town! We saw Mario's on Atherton was open and pulled in. Having dined at many disappointing places we were skeptical and apprehensive. Even asked some folks leaving... More

I've been to Mario's a couple of times now, and I am now sure that I will not be going back after multiple mishaps. During our first visit (6-8 months ago), we actually got up and left because the service was so slow. I have never in my LIFE done that before or since. They were not busy - maybe... More

Yeah, I read the other reviews, I don't know what people are expecting.... We got what we wanted.....a nice dinner. Is it American diners in general or just pickly... More

First time here in over 10 years, we took our nieces for a nice birthday dinner and were disappointed in the quality. We started with the fried slice of mozzarella, which was good but just a bit overcooked...we also got the prosciutto and mozzarella arancini, which was excellent. I ordered the lobster with fettuccine, which was ok...the pasta was stuck... More

My husband and I are locals and Mario's seems to be hit or miss. Unfortunately, our experience last night was a miss. We were looking for somewhere nice to take my in-laws for dinner the day after Christmas and we thought Mario's would be decorated for the holidays...which it was. Our server was very pleasant, but we ended up waiting... More

Went for dinner. To start, a glass of water spilled The waiter did offer to have us move to another table but we declined. He gave us paper napkins to clean up BUT never took them off the table even though they were placed at the edge. Never replaced water or the linen napkins we used to initially clean up... More

Italian food? Do you like salt. The Salami was green. Calamari so breaded it was a meal. Entrees not hot and over sauced and salty. Not a good choice. Eat at McDonalds- actually anywhere else

My motel was the Sleep Inn and Mario's was in walking distance. The food was excellent and the price was reasonable. There was a very good atmosphere and the waiter was very helpful.
