A visit to Mario’s feels like a trip back in time to a late-fifties New York Italian joint. “Old school” is an understatement that applies to the aura, the food, and the entertainment, with crooners performing Rat Pack hits for an audience sitting at checkered tablecloths feasting on bruschetta and pasta dishes in heavy cream sauce. Our vegetarian friend was happy with her eggplant Parmesan and side of sautéed mushrooms, and those of us who shared a pepperoni and anchovy pizza were equally delighted with the thin crisp crust, rich marinara, and generous allocation of cheese.
Hours: D Mon–Sat.
