THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Mario’s Italian Grill Restaurant Review

: Since so many of the customers at the downtown Mario's live in the suburbs and dine there only when they are going to the theater, the restaurant decided to spin off a suburban location, serving the same extensive Italian menu featuring the full-course repast that begins with soup, salad with the traditional oil and vinegar dressing and side dishes of a pasta, potato and vegetable. Choose main courses from a list of old favorites, such as veal Marsala, shrimp scampi and chicken Mario, which is accompanied by Anna potatoes and green beans. If that’s too much, order à la carte from a long list of pasta dishes. There is a pasta bar at noon when people have less time to linger.
