Just in town for the night and looked up reviews for some of the local places and Mario's sounded like my kind of place (Small Family Owned, Good, Inexpensive Food). Mario's pizza was really a very good pie. Thin crust and cooked perfectly. We also took a calzone to go for the trip the next day, even cold it was... More

This is our favorite Italian Restaurant in Rocky Mount. The prices are good, the food is great and the service is always very friendly. There is handicapped access with plenty of room to move around. They will custom make your meal for you so you can get EXACTLY what you want to eat.

Food was excellent! I got a Stromboli and my friend got chicken alfredo. Price was good for the amount of food we got and it didn't take very long for the order to be ready.

After 40 minutes we finally gave up. The owner and manager were both not there tonight and it showed. The servers twice tried to bring us food we didn't order. In hindsight we should have taken it so we at least would have eaten. One table spent 10 minutes trying to return food they didn't order. I'm hoping it didn't... More

Another satisfying takeout experience without going fast food. A dinner portion of spaghetti with meat sauce is large enough for two meals. The garlic bread was warm and well seasoned. Not inexpensive but well worth it for the quality and quantity. I will be back!

My son's club soccer team was in Rocky Mount (Dec 8-11 2016) for National League games. We had a team dinner (around 36 in total) at the restaurant. Everyone was really happy with their dinner. Our waitress Jennifer was so accommodating and on top of every families order. (she even kept everyone's check separate). She was really friendly and so... More

The food was only OK. The garlic bread was bland and sparsely buttered. The homemade dressing tasted like vinegar. My grilled chicken salad was boring and mostly lettuce. The chicken Parmesan was small and dry. The wait staff was fantastic but the food took a long time to prepare. Overall, we were disappointed.

Pizza is my favorite food and I'm so passionate about it that most often I bake it fresh at home most of the time. This place shocked me. I didn't expect to be wowed by a pizza spot in small town in NC. Don't miss out on this sleeper!

Thank T.C. S
