About

Offering traditional Northern Italian Cuisine, expertly prepared – that’s Mario’s Ristorante on 61st Street, Galveston’s oldest Italian restaurant.

It all started back in 1967 when Sicilian born Giovanni Smecca decided to move to Galveston, Texas from Patterson, New Jersey after hearing Glen Campbell’s famous “Galveston” during a card game. Giovanni always dreamed of being a professional fisherman, so he decided to give it a shot and made the drive to Galveston. After battles of sea sickness, Giovanni quickly decided that the fish business wasn’t for him.

Heartbroken, Giovanni was about to move back to New Jersey when he met Mario Bonaccorso who was trying to open a pizzeria. The two became great friends, and together, these two young Italian entrepreneurs started Mario’s Flying Pizza and brought the “pizza pie” to Galveston Island.

Today, Mario’s Ristorante is still family owned and operated and is considered a delightful, neighborhood restaurant with a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. They serve a wide variety of Italian cuisine and New York style pizza, and strive to use fresh, seasonal, ingredients wherever possible.
