Here at Mario’s, we give diners a taste of Italy with our Italian food. If you’re looking specifically for pasta for dinner, here’s what we offer:
We serve all these dishes with a side salad and garlic knots and top it with a delicious savory tomato sauce. Of course, you can also expect a lot of cheese and perfectly-done pasta that is never mushy or soggy. Our dishes are filled with flavor, which is why our customers come back again and again.

Today, pasta is usually recognized as an Italian food, because so many delicious pasta recipes originated in Italy. However, this recipe from Italy was likely derived from noodle dishes from China, which were brought to Italy by Marco Polo in the 13th century. Others believe that the first dishes spread to Europe from nomadic Arabs. Either way, pasta has a long and rich history in Asia. In China, they used flour made from the breadfruit tree to make several different kinds of dishes.
Once it made its way to Europe, makers began to use durum wheat to produce pasta flour. This created a dried product that could be easily stored and transported. Thanks to the mild temperatures in Italy, most dishes included fresh vegetables, and tomato sauce became extremely popular.
Pasta made its way to America in the 1700s. Thomas Jefferson was actually a huge influence on eating habits at the time and brought several cases of pasta over to his home in Virginia after spending time in Europe. In the 1800s, the United States saw a huge influx of Italian immigrants, especially from the Naples area, so pasta became a popular street food. You can read more about the history of pasta here!
Although our pasta dishes are very popular, we also serve a variety of other dishes. Of course, our main offering is pizza! We create NY-style pizza and have a variety of specialty toppings to satisfy any tastes. We also have the following other entrees on our menu:
Moreover, we also have several delicious appetizers available including Italian sausage, boneless and bone-in wings, toasted ravioli, onion rings, mozzarella sticks, garlic knots and garlic bread, jalapeno poppers, Italian meatballs, french fries, and fried mushrooms.
