From Yelp! to Facebook, Google to Square, and now The San Antonio Current and Local! Thanks again! Below are just a few reviews of what our wonderful customer’s are posting, please read on 🙂
I’m a sucker for New York Style Pizza, the owner’s Mary and Gerry Gerardo are doing things differently than anywhere else in the city. They are fanatical about creating and crafting New York-style pizza, the Gerardo’s do their pies with thin, bubbly crisp crusts. Mario’s uses fresh authentic (e.g., you won’t find BBQ chicken here)ingredients.
And dare I say it, they have have a New York state of mind about them, which makes sense because the owner’s hail from the Empire State! They are so committed to their vision that they fly in the dough from New York so they can match the taste of the Big Apple!
If you want something truly visionary, try The Gerry’s Special pizza with pepperoni, beef, onion, pineapple and jalapenos, it’s sweet, it’s spicy, it’s savory – it’s DELICIOUS! Not your style? Their Meat lovers and Margherita are also equally tasty! – The San Antonio Current
I ordered a pepperoni and mushroom pizza. I asked if they used fresh shrooms or canned. The woman that took my order (co-owner I’m guessing) answered with an apology that some place actually put slimy, canned mushrooms on a pie. If you prefer Chicago style or chain pizza than you won’t understand this place. This is a fold it and eat it pie with a chewy, bubbly, delicious crust. So great!
Support this small local joint. Very friendly owners too.
I WILL be back! – Brett S.
Loved this place..started with the cheesy garlic bread and it was so very crispy and tasty. Next we tried the wings which were super juicy and so full of flavor. I get tired of the same flavored hot wings so this was a surprise to my pallet. Now on to the pizza..we ordered the meat lovers which was no disappointment. Lots of meat and the cheese to me tastes so rich and fresh. Dough was by far my favorite..crispy with a little charcoal. If I had to make one complaint it would be the napkins..yes the napkins. I lie thick napkins and they were too thin for me. Definitely no deal breakers here and I will frequent over and over again. – Sheena G.
Take this review from two New Yorkers that relocated to small town Texas! We drove through San Antonio from Corpus Christi on our way back home. We had just had terrible pizza in Corpus a day or two ago and wanted better pizza to erase that taste. We saw on Mario’s page that their pizza dough was shipped from NYC and thought we would give it a shot. Yes the pizza dough tastes just like it does at any street corner pizza joint in NYC and we loved it!
We had cheesy garlic bread, pizza and cannoli and couldn’t be happier! We loved it! And if we ever come back to San Antonio we will be sure to stop by! – Kimberly C.
Wow. Incredible pizza! We just got back from NY and all I can say is this is definitely comparable to the quality of pizza you’d find there… or better! We ate it so fast, didn’t get a chance to take a picture of the pizza. Highly recommend the meatball hero. The owners are warm and personable. Too bad there is no indoor seating–south Texas weather can be brutal, but this is worth the drive to pick up and bring home. Highly recommend–will definitely be back! – Lori S.
Pizza is super yum, love the cheesy bread, great customer service, and good value for the price. – Beatriz B.
This is the BEST pizza in San Antonio. They import the dough from New York City and the crust is the dictionary definition of perfect. The prices are very good, the vegetables are freshly cut and the owners are delightful New Yorkers. If you’re in Far North Central and have a craving for a pie, Mario’s is the ONLY option.
You can call ahead or drop in. The wait is never too long and you have great company to talk with while you wait. There is beautiful outdoor seating and even a gazebo! It’s tucked away in a small complex on the corner of 281 and Bulverde rd so keep an eye out. Right now it’s San Antonio’s best kept secret so let’s make it San Antonio’s BEST PIZZA EVER like it deserves to be. – Tom N.
