Our last night will be this Saturday.

It’s bittersweet for our family, but it’s time to turn the page. We are so grateful to our loyal staff and customers, and of course “06880” readers. Thanks for your support!

  1. R.I.P. with all the other gone but not forgotten establishments 🙁

  2. Start a Westport Museum with Marios Big Headed character dolls?

    For the Holly Ball, I went to Mario’s with Kevin Brawley. Now they both are gone, but will be remembered lovingly.

    The End of an Era. Farewell, Mario’s.

    Mario’s will be missed. I remember going there with my family when I was young & my dad (Ebb Nash) would order the prime rib & it would be bigger than the plate, and so tasty (I always received a bite or two!).

    I moved away almost 25 years ago, but whenever I visited Westport, there was always a plate of spaghetti & meatballs along with the best Gorgonzola salad anywhere waiting for me at Mario’s.

    Thank you for all the delicious meals, the fun times, and always being made to feel like family.

  6. Say it ain’t so…..

  7. Where are we supposed to go after Wed. Night Racing? So many years…….

    I will always remember the SO SO ’60s logo, and the collage on the menu that obviously stemmed from a discussion about what one would need to show to illustrate Westport – “Show tennis… golf… a commuter man…” etc. And of course those amazing “dolls” and the fun trying to guess the identity of as many as possible. (Most people could get most of them, but not all.)

    I had my first real date at Marios… with your old buddy, Dan – Marc Sholes! Great memories of many family dinners there. My dad always got the pork chop. All the best to my neighbor, Lori Kosut!

    My wife and I went there before it was Mario’s, when it was still called the West Tuck, when Joe and Bob Spero owned it. We were also there for the Grand Opening of Mario’s. Over the years we have many
    fond memories and seen the changes. We will miss it.
    We have are memories of Mario, Frank, and the staff.
