Great place to celebrate special occasion. Food is wonderful. Wine selection is wide. Tuscan in Lakeland, if you drive by you probably wouldn't go in. Recommend reservations, but could still have to wait. Sometimes service is awesome and sometimes slow but food is worth it.

Great place. The food is the best Italian I have ever tasted. The soup and salads are wonderful. The lunch service could be improved. I am using them for catering in a few days. I will post on that experience as well.

We had arranged a private party to celebrate a 105th birthday of my father-in-law. We checked about a certain champagne which they said no problem. When we arrived we were told they didn't have it and they only had 5 veal chops left. They seemed to be unprepared for us and obviously under staffed in the kitchen because it took almost 3 hours to receive our main courses. The honoree had to leave before it was over. All were totally disappointed in the allover experience.

My husband and I love to choose Mario's when celebrating a special event in our life. It's so quiet and romantic, we feel like we've left Lakeland all together. The food is excellent. We love the formal staff and recommend it to anyone who hasn't given it a shot yet. You'll love it too!

Want authentic Italian food in Lakeland? Mario's is the place. My husband and I often choose Mario's over the chains for their great service and amazing food. We always enjoy the chicken Parmesan and chicken Marsala. We have been several times and have never once had a bad meal. The service is exceptional and atmosphere inviting. A+!

Marios is a nice Italian Restaurant to take family, friends or business associates to. My compliments to the chef - you do a great job and the atmosphere is perfect.

Marios is a truly authentic Italian Restaurant. They offer a variety of Italian dishes, each made perfectly. This establishment is idea for a special night out. While the building itself is not huge, the smaller atmosphere is very inviting and romantic. Prices definitely are a good value, especially for the high quality food you receive, and the service is tremendous. Marios is a delicious place to eat!

When in Lakeland we try always to take the time for a relaxing Italian dinner at Mario's. My non-Italian in-laws could not wait to show this place off to their very Italian daughter-in-law. They were sure I would love it and they were right. The veal parmigiano was terrific. It was the real deal with succulent sauce. The atmosphere is very special-deceiving from a drive-by. It's on the small side, though and we've had to wait many times to eat there.

this is my absolute favorite restaurant, i ran into it during my travels from orlando to tampa. dont be fooled by the outside of the building; once you enter the front doors it is like a transformation. the italian decore is extrordinary. upon arrival i was greeted promptly by the friendly staff and escorted to the wine bar to enjoy a glass of wine while waiting to be seated. dinner was amazing: crisp house salad, yummy large portion of penne mushroom, and decadent cholcolate cake for desert. one of the totally sweet owners even came out and introduced herself and made sure everything was exceptional! i highly recommend this phenomenal restaurant to everyone!!!

Pros: felt like they went above and beyond for me! best food, ambience, and service ever

Cons: outside of the building does no justice for the restuarant

I always like to try new Italian restaurants when I see them and I almost missed this fabulour restaurant. From the outside this restaurant lookes like a typical cheap Italian place, but inside you will think you stepped into a five star restaurant. The lights are dimmed and your table is lit up by the flicker of a burning candle. The small dining room seems expansive through the use of mirrors lining the walls. This is like my secret romantic hideaway location. You would do well to take your dates to this restaurant. The food is top notch and the wine selection is admirable. But if you are planning a special event be sure to make reservations as the dining room is pretty small.

PROS: Romantic atmosphere, great food
CONS: Small dining room

They catered a wedding. The food was fantastic. We had the lasagne, chicken marsalis and chicken parmesan. Very delicious. They were a bit impatient with us as the reception was not begun as soon as it should because of pictures and they were stressing that the chicken would dry out. But the food was worth it.
