Love the Specials. The food at Marios is fantastic. But it's really a treat to go on the weekends and try one of the specials. The food is really wonderful. It's a great family resturant. The service is very good and you're treated like family.
Try the stuffed pizza. Mario's is a great little Italian eatery with friendly service and yummy food. Lots of traditional listings on menu like calzones, lasagna, and pizzas. I love the stuffed pizza -- especially the spinach. try is with a side of meatballs. The flavor is a good mix with the spinach and tomato sauce. The restaurant is small inside, so make a reservation if you have a party of 6 or more. Some outside seating for when the weather is nice.
Best Pizza Ever. Mario's was under different propritorship for about a year and during that time the food and service went down hill. Now Pete is back and the food and the service are superior. It is probably the best pizza since I was in New York. The menu items are wonderful and the service is better than ever. If you haven't been there in a while then it is worth the trip back. I highly recommend it.
Worst pizza and service. we have been here many times and it was ok a few times. The last time we went we orded a pizza and 9 mins later it was on our table. Later after looking at the pie, it was re-heated with our one topping just thrown on top and put back in the oven to get it WARM, the cheese wasnt even melted!!! So long story short, we told our server and she agreed with us and went back to tell the cook and that was the end of it. There are many other places at the beach to get a great pizza, while also getting it made fresh for you. Go somewhere else.
Mario's is well worth the trip. Being a tourist, someone local turned me onto to Mario's at the Beach. Marios gives you everything you would want in a resturant value, great service & exceptional food. My personal favorite is the baked ziti & house salad with house dressing. On my last visit my waitress brought us a sampler platter with many finger food favorites-including the fresh rolls. Exceptional meal. I only wish they would overnight meals. Living in Birmingham, Alabama is not convient to Mario's but it sure is worth the trip to Jacksonville to eat there. while Mario's is not one of ambiance and romantic meals it is a family friendly place . The spaghetti, lasagne, pizzas are all fantastic.
A favourite. I lived in Jax Beach for 24 years and what I miss the most is Mario's pizza. I live too far now to go very often, but it was a weekly thing for me. The food is delicious and the people are sweet and generous with the food they serve. Their lunch specials are great and I love sitting on the patio on a nice day. Here's a tip: if you need to feed 3 or 4 people for under $20---get the large stromboli. It's so good.
MARIOS AT THE BEACH. MARIO'S FOOD IS THE BEST ITALIAN FOOD IN ALL OF JACKSONVILLE. HIS FOOD REMINDS ME OF NEW YORK. HIS PIZZA BY FAR IS THE BEST IN ALL OF JACKSONVILLE ALSO. NOBODY MAKES SAUCE LIKE MARIO. EVER TIME I GO THERE TO EAT, MARIO IS THERE TO GREET YOU WITH A SMILE.
Best Italian in Northeast Florida.
Five years ago, my family moved to Jacksonville from New England. Adjusting quickly to the accents and improper grammar, my sister and I found one thng lacking with our new home: good Italian. We tried Carraba's, Bucca de Beppo, and even resorted to Olive Garden. This year, we finally found a place that met our harsh standards. Mario's has the best Italian food I've had in the south, and can rival a few of the places up north, but it is the genuine, homey feeling that sets Italian restaurants apart. THe feeling that Mario's exudes. It's my favorite place to eat!

Mario's is REAL pizza. Its the best pizza at the beach because it is owned and operated by Italians from NY. The crust is crisp and chewy, the toppings are top notch and the sauce is fresh tasting. Real pizza afficionados will go for Mario's pizza every time!!
