    The food is spectacular. Definitely try the sautéed calamari, seared tuna and octopus starters. There were 5 of us, we all ordered a different main course, and all of them were exceptional. Only things that detracted were that they left the front door open and it was 90 degrees out so the restaurant was very hot; the noise level got up there especially with the volume level of the music they were playing. I will definitely go back as the food was worth it.

    Went there for lunch, the place was empty- two tables to be specific- to be told it’s a Mother’s Day special set menu. Although I called twice and went online prior to arrival, nothing was mentioned in regards to “set menu”. After ordering from the set menu, and while on our third course, a family behind us ordered everything from the main menu; and nothing from the so called “set menu”. After approaching the waitress, she said they ran out of the Mother’s Day set menu!!! The place was totally empty! Food was ok, over priced for the quality and quantity! Never again. Purely a rip-off.

    First time dining here and was a great experience. The food was fantastic, service was on point and the manager/owner is clearly involved with making sure things run smoothly and guests are happy. It was a little loud - but was also a very busy Saturday night. Definitely will be going back! Recommend the grilled calamari,branzino snd the lamb chops. And the cannoli for dessert.

    Absolutely delicious food and drink! Been there for Mother's Day, date/anniversary night, and couple's dinner. Great service and the owner is very nice and cares about your experience. Will always come back and continue to spread word of mouth. Great options for vegetarians as well! The sautéed calamari (app) and lamb chop (dinner) is my favorite!

    It was okay. We had a new waitress and a bit of a communications issue between her and the kitchen but she was super nice and we figured it out. It was an odd/off night being Easter Sunday possibly. The food was good. Prices reasonable. I’d go there again.

    Second time here. First time was soon after opening and the food was great. The pizza was perfect, a real Napoli oven with a blistered crust and all. This time our pizza looked something out of a cafeteria. The cacio e pepe is not authentic, we've had it many times in Rome and make it at home too. This had a mostly an oil sauce and not a parmesan/egg yolk emulsion.

    A very nice spot - I could do without the distracting big screens behind the bar and the music volume is a little higher than we like, but it's still possible to have a conversation so that's good. The food is good and the service pleasant.

    Sat outside and enjoyed the weather. The eggplant parm isn’t coated and fried with bread crumbs. It’s just sliced eggplant fried which makes it a bit mushy in the mouth so not particularly great, just ok. No spaghetti served with it either. Small portion. Cannoli’s filling was just on each end vs the entire cannoli. Salad was anemic in size and flavor and ingredients. Might return but not certain.

    My husband and I were looking for something Italian in Arlington area. Read review of Mazaro and gave it a try. The restaurant was beautifully decorated and clean. Loved the butternut squash ravioli! Husband enjoyed the chicken parmesan. Service was excellent--appropriately friendly. Look forward to going back! Looked to have nice outdoor dining.

    Very good overall, and we will go back. Homemade bread and meatballs were excellent. The Grilled Caesar was very good, but missed the mark with the unseasoned croutons that reminded me of unseasoned stuffing mix. The lasagna was tasty, but missed the mark with the soupy presentation and abundance of cheese. The meat sauce was great though. The ambience was nice, but the servers were coming in and out of the main door all night from the outside patio. There are 2 doors for a reason in a restaurant. We would have been warmer had we sat on the patio with the heater. It detracted from the experience.

    After reading the reviews, we were looking forward to eating at Mazaro's. Needless to say, we were underwhelmed. Although Mazaro's posts a lunch menu on their website, we were told that they only have dinner menus. They did not have a side salad and did not provide bread with our Italian meals. The chicken parmesan was overcooked. The coffee machine was broken and the tea bag was served with a lukewarm cup of water. Regarding the ambiance, we had a dead flower on our table but it was very quiet since we were the only ones there. Price was high for what we received. We will not be returning.

    I ordered the lobster ravioli. The serving was very small, there was barely any lobster, and the sauce added on top was very salty. The service was also terrible. We had to constantly try to flag waiters and be ignored, although it was not terribly busy.

    Love Italian food and wanted to try a new place. However, I was disappointed. Overall, I recommend that the Cheesecake Factory’s pastas/Italian style selections versus Mazaro. The restaurants vibes weren’t what I expected. Its ambiance resembles a decorated bar that happens to sell Italian style foods. My waitress was horribly trained or possibly intoxicated during my visit. I say possibly intoxicated because my waitress spent most of the time in the back/bathroom, took our order and forgot to tell the kitchen so I never received my appetizer, and also wasn’t wearing her mask correctly (nose not covered). I was there on a Monday night and the restaurant was almost empty. The food was not bad, however it was not memorable in any way. I would recommend Cheesecake Factory pasta dishes/Italian selection versus this place.

    We had a delicious meal. It was Christmas Eve and Covid was going nuts so it was quite empty in the restaurant. Staff was very attentive and the food was very good. Highly recommend the Amatriciana pasta. The Cacio e Pepe was also good, as was the pizza. Others got a veal chop and steak, both of which were good. It’s extra for bread for the table which tends to bug me, but eh, it’s a tough time for restaurants right now so whatever. Our server Sarah (I think) was very good.
