Mario's Ristorante on 61st
It all started back in 1967 when Sicilian born Giovanni Smecca decided to move to Galveston, Texas from Patterson, New Jersey after hearing Glen Campbellac2s famous acoeGalvestonac 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 wasnac2t 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 Marioac2s Flying Pizza and brought the acoepizza pieac to Galveston Island.
Love this place!!! When I call for delivery, they are nice and they get it delivered quick! The pizza is Amazing!!! They deliver anything you want from there! The delivery drivers are always so nice! The food gets to us still very hot! :)
If you want to eat American style pizza then go to Mario's. I had the worst ever experience at Mario's when I ordered Pasta, the waiter did not know what al dente meant. Nor had he any idea of what a Caesar salad was composed of and even charged extra for the anchovies. If you want pizza visit Mario's but please don't order anything else. You will be sadly disappointed.
This is the BEST Pizza anywhere within 100 Miles. They are an old school itialian family. They are always courteous and professional. They are the best pizza on the island so they stay busy. The time and effort they put into their hand tossed homemade pizza is worth a few minutes of wait time. the lunch buffet is off the charts with a good variety!
Travel all over the country and I' m from NJ my husband NY and we so miss the food from home when we tried Marios we loved it so thank you mario for a little bit of home in galveston tx
At last a very good restaurant in Galveston and one that delivers what it is advertising for. Excellent Italian cuisine, nice ambiance and abundant menu. The food is good, prices are correct and service is great. I really recommend this Mario's rather than the one which is on the seawall. Mario's on 61st Street is for locals who know and not for tourists who are fooled with a stupid Italian ambiance that would make cry any Italian Mamma...
If you're looking for good pizza and cold beer just head to Mario's on 61st St. Don't get it mixed up with Mario's on the Seawall, their pizza doesn't even come close. Never had a bad pizza from Mario's.
