We were greater by the owner in traditional Italian style! Very friendly, old school Italian restaurant, nothing fancy to look at but, good food!

Went to Mario's for some "old school" Italian anxious to try a panzarotti. We ordered one, as well as a pizza. Both would have been fine EXCEPT the mozzarella cheese had a lingering salty taste that was difficult to get by. Maybe that's what makes it authentic, but it caused both items and our dining experience to be a bit... More

Just like real Italian from our experience having lived in Italy. Fantastic service, excellent menu, we'll prepared and presentation, 1960s decor adds to the atmosphere, family owned and operated for decades. We eat here monthly. It's different than other great Italian restaurants, better than every chain, and tough competition in town and Tristates.

Old school Italian restaurant. Probably unchanged since the 1950's or before. Delicious food, large menu. Very authentic, nothing modern about the menu items either. We had heard raves about Angelina's White Sauce, so we had to try it. Tortellini was very good. With the White Sauce, the Meat Tortellini was a better choice than the Cheese Tortellini, but both were... More

He wife and I stopped in for a nice dinner. She had the panzeratti and I had the stuffed pasta with spinach. My wife could not finish her meal. This thing is huge. The service was great. The restaurant is slightly lost in time, but that adds to the ambiance.

We became regulars at Mario's over 30 years ago when we lived in the area. Whenever we are in Dubuque we visit Mario's. He's always there to greet us and check up on our meals. All the food there is great, but the Panzerotti's are a must! The beef ones are our favorite!
