This is a hidden gem! The sauces they use in their dishes were amazing. Very cozy and they take great pride in their service.

Mario's is situated in a small shopping mall, on Gulf Blvd in Madeira Beach. I have passed it many times and never noticed. However I went to a book review at the local library and asked about a good local restaurant. Several people recommended Mario's. Small, relaxed, made to feel welcome. Very pleasant server. Many very interesting meals to choice... More

We ordered food to go from here because we were staying across the street and didn't feel like going out that particular night. The vegetable soup with tortellini was excellent as was the salad with crumbled blue cheese and home made dressing. Both those items came with our meals. I had the Veal Picatta and it was good however the... More

Ordered veal parm, tasted like cardboard. Wife got lasagna, it was 3/4" high ? Tasted like garlicky cardboard. Said lasagna tasted bad, they subs titled spaghetti.still charged us for the higher priced lasagna ! No wonder there was no waiting for a table. Overpriced & bland. If you're hungry for Italian food, don't even consider this place. Save the $50... More

What a delightful find ! Authentic Italian food. Every dish we had was perfect. Tomato basil soup was excellent. And wonderful cannoli. During the two weeks that we were in the area we went there 3 times.

This tiny restaurant, only about 10 tables is dark with an old world feel. Waited on promptly but service got slower as the night progressed. Only 2 people waiting on tables and tiny bar area. Started with soup and salad Entrees included lasagna with a side of meatball and veal parm all were good. Wine was a little pricey for... More

basic italiam dining, paper tablecloths, chunk glasses, no frills. That said the staff were very welcoming. The bread was very Italian and very European nothing like it in the USA, crusty and served with butter. We opted for main courses only lasagne and chicken saltinmbocca all washed down with Peronist - excellent. W shared a desert, lemoncella cake, very sweet... More

My wife and I ate here one evening while spending a few days in Madeira Beach. The restaurant is small (10 tables) so get there early or plan on a wait. We arrived about 5:45 on a Thursday night and were seated immediately. The service, once seated, was excellent. We had pasta dishes and felt like the pasta was fresh... More

Don't miss for nice quiet night out. Just moved to the area and this has quickly become a favorite. Pasta was good and meat sauce was thick and tasted fresh.

Mario's offers excellent Italian food in a small but cosy atmosphere. The food is of excellent quality and portions are sufficient. Service is good.
