Description: It all started back in 1967 when Sicilian born Giovanni Smecca decided to move to Galveston, Texas from Patterson, New Jersey after hearing Glen Campbell’s famous “Galveston” during a card game. Giovanni always dreamed of being a professional fisherman, so he decided to give it a shot and made the drive to Galveston. After battles of sea sickness, Giovanni quickly decided that the fish business wasn’t for him.Heartbroken, Giovanni was about to move back to New Jersey when he met Mario Bonaccorso who was trying to open a pizzeria. The two became great friends, and together, these two young Italian entrepreneurs started Mario’s Flying Pizza and brought the “pizza pie” to Galveston Island.Today, we are still family owned and operated and are considered a delightful, neighborhood restaurant with a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. We serve a wide variety of Italian cuisine and New York style pizza and strive to use fresh, seasonal, ingredients wherever possible, so come on in, sit back, relax, and enjoy a wonderful meal and a nice glass of wine at Mario’s Ristorante!

Ordered the Carnivore pizza to go. Staff was friendly and my order was ready. The pizza was very good-not great. I would order from them again.

As always, very good food. This time the difference was the hostess Jewel (unsure of spelling). She was entertaining, funny, sassy and friendly!

Ordered a couple of pizzas to pick up for dinner. We had the Carnivore pizza with several different meats and the Mad Greek pizza, with olives feta cheese, spinach and onions. Both were delicious! Also picked up the tiramisu, chocolate explosion and strawberry pineapple cake for dessert. We loved them all!

As stated great food and they are open later than the other Italian restaurants. We ordered Calzones. I had the pepperoni while my wife had mushroom, onion, tomatoes. They delivered to our hotel room. The food arrived to the room hot and fresh. Yes I will be ordering from here again on my next trip back to Galveston.
