First Review by Chauncy

absolutely amazing staff and options! - Edit

I cannot day enough good words about Mario’s! The owner was so nice and seemed to truly care about providing healthful, vegan options for his customers. All the vegan items are conveniently on their own menu, so there is no question whether or not the items are safe for vegans! The food is delicious and I can’t wait to go back.

Pros: separate menus, friendly staff, reasonable cost

Good Pizza - Edit

I tried the margarita pizza with vegan cheese and it was very good! The sauce was a little too sweet for me, but it's nice to have a place with an all vegan menu!

Pros: 35 min pickup time , vegan cheese all melted , vegan menu

Cons: the smallest size is a medium , sauce is sweet (could be a pro), on the expensive side

Great vegan menu - Edit

I've been visiting Ocean City for about 20 years, but this is my first year as a vegan! Loved this place. They have a full vegan menu upon request. My friend and I got the garlic bread and the margherita pizza. The garlic bread was just so-so but we really enjoyed the pizza! Looks like they just use daiya, but with the sauce and olive oil combo it really had some great flavor! Staff was friendly and service was quick. Will definitely be returning next year.

Great vegan Italian food! - Edit

There aren't many vegan friendly places in Ocean City so finding Mario's Pizzeria & Italian Restaurant was a big surprise. Mario's has a completely separate vegan menu that is very extensive. The owner came to our table and talked to us about his niece who has shellfish allergy so he takes the separation of vegan and non-vegan foods very seriously. My husband and I tried the minestrone soup, pasta primavera with red sauce, and a vegetable strombolli with Daiya cheese. It was so good we are going back for dinner tonight! Since this restaurant serves meat Happy Cow will only let me rate 4 stars but the food and owner get 5 stars from
me! Also worth mentioning that the owner is very helpful at directing you to other vegan friendly places in the area.

Pros: Separate vegan menu, Delicious food, Friendly staff

Cons: Serves meat & dairy products

Great food and service! - Edit

Ask for the vegan menu when you visit; they now have tons of different options. All of their food is great, but the margherita pizza is my favorite. I've even spoken to one of the owners and he was super accommodating and enthusiastic about new vegan customers.

Pros: Clearly labeled menu items, Great pizza

Excellent pizza! - Edit

My boyfriend took me to Mario's for a vegan meal for my birthday. We ordered the vegan cheese fries with daiya and the vegan pizza. Not only was it a beautiful looking pizza but it tasted amazing! The owner came out to talk to us and truly took pride in his cooking and suiting his menu for vegan/vegetarian people. I highly recommend this location. They had a full menu for those that don't have diet restrictions also.

Excellent pizza! - Edit

Mario's makes real NY style pizza and they offer vegan cheese. Mario himself came out and talked with us and he was very excited about the vegan cheese offering, as he gets a lot of customers who request it. The pizza was excellent - our friend had traditional pizza with real cheese and sausage, and we had veggie pizza with vegan cheese and we all loved it.

There are veggie subs available as well, but Mario said it's a shared grill so if you are very strict that might not work for you.

They also have a large menu with Italian selections and several vegan pastas and sauces.

Pros: excellent pizza, vegan cheese available

Great vegan pizza! - Edit

Definitely some of the best vegan pizza I've ever had eating out. Mmmmmm. I would rate them 5 stars but HappyCow puts an upper limit of 4 stars on non-vegetarian restaurants.

Can't recommend it enough!

Great vegan pizza! - Edit

Loved their vegan pizza! I got a vegan medium with broccoli and spinach. They were all very friendly and know exactly what vegans want. I just told them I was ordering a vegan pizza and they didn't bat an eye! It was delicious- crispy crust, fresh vegetables, daiya cheese. I meant to add a picture but we ate it so fast that I forgot to take one! They also will tell you what sauces are vegan if you want pasta, and they can add vegan cheese to sandwhiches. their minestrone soup is also vegan. At this point in time medium vegan pizzas are 17.95, and a large is 19.95- it's worth it!

Pros: Friendly staff- really go above and beyond to acco, Understand vegan restrictions, Willing to work with you

Cons: Limited street parkinf for sit in, but easy to bik

Embracing New Vegan Customers - Edit

Mario's owners/brothers Ernesto and Joseph embraced the #VeganCuisineMonth challenge to add vegan pizza to their menu. They put a neat sign with a big "V" in the window, offering vegan pizza and a vegan hot sandwich.
The owners are warm, welcoming, and eager to learn about the interests of their new vegan customers. Let them know how much you appreciate their options, and be sure to try the always-vegan minestrone soup!

Pros: delicious authentic food, friendly staff & owners, interested in learning about vegan

Cons: can be very busy in summer at mealtimes

Daiya Pizza and more! - Edit

They offer vegan cheese pizza and will add veggie toppings of your choosing. As I was waiting for my pie the staff mentioned that they have many vegan pasta offerings as well. The staff was very friendly.
