We really enjoyed our trip to Mario's. This was probably our favorite place we ate during our stay in Galveston actually. My husband and I split the lobster ravioli, along with the seafood Alfredo. Both were good, but the Alfredo was amazing. We also tried...More

My husband and I ordered the fried ravioli, meat lovers pizza, and two salads. We also ordered a few adult beverages. A bit pricey, but worth it. Everything was good except the fried ravioli. It looked and tasted like a flattened Totino's Pizza Roll. Everything...More

Waitstaff is great & the food is truly authentic. I haven't tried the pizza, but everyone says it is as good as Chicago's. The portions are generous & great food with a view of the seawall.
