Everything was perfect, but the place was a little overcrowded, and the loud music forced to speak too loud. However, the food and service were perfect!

Our visit was so good we had already booked our next with some friends coming to town for a visit. This was a rare experience with delicious food, great service, wonderful ambiance, and amazing hospitality! My boyfriend and I finally found a restaurant we want to become regulars at, thank you Timmy, Chef Marco, and Mahar.

P.S. Forgive if I misspelled any names. Much love and appreciation for your hard work.

My family and I dined here a few days ago, and it was one of the worst restaurants we had eaten at that we can recall in recent memory. For starters, they were out of 3 entrees (a little odd, but whatever) and they had little bread plates on the table, but didn’t serve any bread. Idk about you, but I’ve never been to an Italian restaurant where bread wasn’t given.
We got the grilled romaine Caesar salad, the lobster ravioli, and the chicken parmesan. They lobster ravioli was extremely salty, and other than that, had no flavor. The chicken parmesan was absolutely disgusting. I’m pretty sure they had originally forgotten the dish, because I noticed the waitress ran back to the kitchen when everyone but myself had gotten their food. It came out about 5 minutes later.
The chicken tasted like it was a few days old, and the pasta with marinara sauce tasted like it was made the day before and was just heated up in the microwave (the sauce looked like it was baked onto the noodles).
It’s unfortunate because this restaurant’s location is a great area, but I would caution anyone who wants to eat here.

All dishes were very good from pasta & sausage to fish. Meatballs were the best I've had in a restaurant!

Although initially promising, unfortunately after our 4th time dining at this restaurant we will not be back for a while. The menu has changed and the food was bland, the service is not great and it takes a great deal longer than it should, and in general it needs improvement. Hopefully they will iron out the kinks, as it has great potential.

This restaurant has an innovative take on modern Italian cuisine. We ordered fish dishes for Friday in Lent and they were both delicious. Nice portion size too. Just wish you didn’t have to pay for bread.

I made the reservation for lunch. When I got there they were not open. My reservation was for 12 noon. I waited until 1pm. Still not open so I left hungry. I emailed Open Table regarding this matter with no response. If the restaurant is not open for these hours that are posted open table should be updated. There were a couple other restaurants listed in open table very close to Mazaro with available time however they were not open either. One would think during these difficult times businesses would be more specific about their hours of operation and open table should be updating more frequently. The menu was enticing but who knows if it’s any good at all. I probably will not even try to return as if this is how they run the place what is the service and the food actually like. Very disappointed.

Food and drinks were subpar. Two people in the party ordered bolognese and it tasted like boxed pasta and jarred tomato sauce. The other four people in the party all had less than satisfactory meals as well. I tried to order and espresso martini but the restaurant wasn't able to make it because they didn't have espresso...what Italian restaurant doesn't have espresso? Service was fine, nothing stellar, nothing horrible. I am in no rush to return.

This is the place to go for authentic Italian food. You won’t be disappointed. I made a reservation online at 10pm just to find out the kitchen closed at 10pm and the owner still seated me and took my order. I can’t wait go back. 5/5 stars!

Great place in Clarendon. Glad to see an Italian place open up. Ambiance is nice, noise level is moderate, food is good and with large portions. Service is very good (it is noticeable that they are trying to set the stage as a newly opened up restaurant). The price of the restaurant could easily be higher. Decent all rounder

Very good meal. It was Monday so it was slow and quiet. The eggplant and spinach app was fantastic. Our party enjoyed the spinach fettuccine with shrimp, lasagna and Bolognese. Waitstaff were attentive. Reasonably priced. Highly recommend.

Food was GREAT. Loved the seafood pasta and the calamari appetizer. The service was not great - we weren't sure who our waiter even was (the hostess ended up taking our order because she noticed we weren't being helped). The service was not a deterrent to come back though, we had a wonderful meal and would definitely recommend. The prices were very reasonable as well.
