Fantastic food, drinks and great service!!! Seafood fettuccini Mariana had shrimp, catfish, clams and mussels ... very good. Can't remember the name of my dish but it had lemon shrimp with pasta and green beans... yummy! Will visit again.

Mario's is AMAZING! We had dinner there our second night in Galveston. The food was wonderful! I love Olive Garden and this was even better. Our waitress, Ana, was great! Very welcoming, friendly, and helpful! She even ran outside to bring us the leftover pizza slices we had forgotten on the table. We'll definitely be back when in Galveston again... More

I haven't been here in years and had a really good time. The food was really good as always and our waiter, Dillan, was very attentive and kind!

The lunch buffet was very good - especially the pastas. Dessert is not included in buffet which was disappointing but they have several cakes and a gelato bar to choose a dessert at a discounted price if you got the buffet. The service was very good too with friendly servers. Overall a great experience.

The Smecca family has owned and operated this restaurant for years. The food is great you will see the actual owner in the kitchen. Prices are reasonable. Atmosphere is a little bit of Italy in Texas...bon appite!

GF pizza, shrimp and penne pasta are safe for Celiacs. The GF pizza is hands down the best we've ever had! This truly excellent Italian restaurant has great service too. Devlyn is an exceptional waiter. He went out of his was to ensure our food was prepared safe for Celiacs.

We at at Mario's for dinner one night while in Galveston. The pizza was some of the best we've had and the other pasta dishes (lobster mac&cheese and Mario's spaghetti) were excellent. We also received great service!
