About Mario's Ristorante

Mario’s Ristorante has been a feature on Market Street in Bacup for 26 years, and it is easy to see why the local community has taken them to their hearts. Mario himself has made Rossendale his home since moving to East Lancashire from Pescara in the central Italian region of Abruzzo in the early 80s, and the menu that he serves up is representative of the cuisine of his native land. There are plenty of antipasti, pizza, pasta and risotto, as well as main courses that display the best in Italian cuisine. We recommend the pollo Milanese, chicken coated in breadcrumbs and served with spaghetti and vegetables, or the lamb cooked in red wine sauce. The drinks menu is suitably extensive as well, so make the most of your trip to Mario’s in Bacup by indulging in a vino or two: just remember to book your taxi – and your table, of course – in advance.

Beautiful meal and service today on Father’s Day. I had the best lasagna I’ve had in a long time and my girls loved their pizza...and not just the Nutella pizza! Friendly, relaxed and enjoyable evening with our two daughters. We will be back soon! Thank you Mario and team.

Excellent service and brilliant food. Ambience was superb. Asked for fish of the day which had sold out but Dario the head waiter got the chef to knock me up a fish medley that wasn't on the menu at no extra charge and it was brilliant. Will definatley be returning. Great experience

Not been here for years and took my dad as a birthday treat. Fantastic service we were dealt with straight away our food was ordered and before we knew it we were sat eating. Delicious food and I will most certainly be coming back again.

Atmosphere and Food superb as always. Even though the restaurant was busy as there was a party happening, we did not have to wait for our table and the food was delivered quickly with a smile. I recommend this restaurant to my friends.

The food was great, the atmosphere was great, the staff was fantastic they could not do enough for you, just one little thing lacking, it was freezing....there was no heating in the restaurant. Overall the experience was fabulous, we will definitely be returning.

Excellent service, excellent food. Can't fault it. Great choice to suit every palette, and well priced. Great drinks menu too, to suit everyone. Adults only this visit, but have been with children and they are really welcomed.
