Editorial reviews from the web (4)

The clientele is as beautiful as the food at this intimate jazz and supper club across the street from the Mission Inn. The northern Italian cuisine is first-rate, as are the jazz bands that perform Friday and Saturday at 10 pm. Try the pear-and-Gorgonzola wood-fired pizza, followed by the star-anise panna cotta for dessert. Jazz groups play on weekend nights in the restaurant's lounge.

Mario's Place Restaurant Review

Mario’s Place inhabits stylish digs across from the landmark Mission Inn. The urbane setting includes tables dressed in crisp linen, Art Deco lighting, a copper-topped bar sensually illuminated in red, modern art and a generous use of mahogany. The menu of chef Leone Palagi is not always consistent, but on a good day, this is the closest you’ll get to Valentino in the Inland Empire. Starters...

"Let [chef] Leone Palagi be your guide" at this "classy", family-owned Riverside Italian, where "delicious" salads, pastas and meats "tempt the palate"; "top-notch" service and a "classy" patio-enhanced atmosphere beguile too, and while prices may be on the high side, it's still a spot "to impress someone"; P.S. late-night jazz entertains Fridays and Saturdays.

Editorial Review

Across from the Mission Inn, this Italian stunner has been a treasured favorite of locals and travelers for many years.

Wow, I didn't think I liked tomatoes until I went to Mario's and tried it on their bruschetta. I was so impressed this is not Olive Garden Italian food, it is fine dining like you get in Italy!!

Again, bought into the hype of the locals and was sorely disappointed. The online presence promised a lot but the real world delivery was unremarkable. If price and value are important to you, avoid this venue; it is way overpriced. What is a shame is the kitchen starts with great provisions but renders them un imaginatively or flavorless. Their idea...

They had loud music coming from two different sources. Forget about anything resembling a conversation. The service was probably OK but who could tell if you can't communicate with the waiter. The food was unremarkable. I would never consider going back to this restaurant unless we could get a reserved table outside for the lighting of the Christmas lights.

Menu was above & beyond

This place offered fine dining at it's best. The atmosphere was exquisite. The service and food was excellent. The menu was above and beyond. The way the specials was presented by the waiter was amazing. We asked him several times to repeat it. The owner personally greeted us at our table and was kind enough to come outside and take...
