There is ample parking across the street. Nice looking dessert display. They have high chairs for kids. Preferable to sit in the back if you have small children because the seating is close quarters. Oddly enough there is still a working pay phone in the restaurant. The wait staff was friendly. St Arnold IPA is decent on draft. Not a lot of local beers on draft though. Spinach artichoke dip was ok. Spaghetti and meat balls was filling but I asked them to spice it up some which was the right call. I’d avoid the Italian almond cake made in house. Go with the cannoli. The gelato looked great and I should have tried that.

Our waiter Julian was the best! I half to say their food was top of the line! If you come to Galveston make it a half to go eat place in your travels! We came in for the Lonestar Rally and have eaten at several restaurants and this place was the BEST!

My best friend from medical school and I were in Galveston for a school reunion and went to Mario's because it was, in its earlier iteration as a pizza parlor, one of our regular haunts. We were not disappointed. Our waiter, Julian, was extremely helpful and attentive with our dinner order and our wine choice. Everything was perfectly prepared and the portions were plenty for two (we shared a salad and a pizza). We will definitely return the next time we're in Galveston.

After reading a lot of reviews on this place, my husband and I ate there during our recent trip to Galveston. While the food was good, I don't think it was as great as everyone else on here thought it was. My husbands lasagna was dry and looked like it was from the end of the pan. He said it tasted fine though. I had the Shrimp Francese, which was delicious, but I bit into a big lemon seed that hadn't been strained out when they added the lemon juice to the sauce. Tiny complaints, but I expected a little more from this place. I still rate it very good though as Angela, our server did a great job taking care of us. Highly recommend the Seafood Cheese Dip. I could have made a meal on that alone. It was delicious!
