Stopped the other evening , just my wife and I . It was a little busy , but we were well greeted. Our cocktails were well shaken and fine. The food suburb. The stuffed mushrooms are great. I tried a special jumbo shrimp franchise. Wow it blew my socks off !

Visiting recently , my wife and I were warmly greeted. The martinis come with a side car and are good. The food was memorable. Served piping hot and very tasty. Try the veal parm. Also the stuffed mushrooms are very good.

Mario's is a nice old school Italian restaurant that has a friendly atmosphere, great Italian staple dishes made with fresh ingredients and quite simply the best snail salad in the state! Another Cranston gem!

Being 100% Italian, i decided to bring my friend from out of town to Mario's. I had eaten there a few years back, and remembered the food was good.

Excellent food! Have never been disappointed. My favorite appetizer is the Steamed Littlenecks with toast points. The restaurant is small, the atmosphere is pleasant, the waitstaff is terrific but it's the food that is remarkable! Definitely will be going back.

I have eaten here three times now and each time have not been disappointed. Had the smelt appetizer and snail salad to start last night and both were delicious. Mario made up veal Milanese, although not on the menu. Delicious! Friends ordered the last order of pork ossa bucco available and it was very apparent why they ran out. Tender... More

Very surprised I did not find Mario's listed here. I have to share the secret, it is just too good a place not to share with others. It is a little out of the way, but worth the ride if your a local and if your from out of town it beats all the restaurants on the Federal Hill for... More
