Mario’s Restaurant & Pub: Authentic Italian Food in Downtown Medicine Hat

Family owned and operated Mario’s Restaurant & Pub has proudly served downtown Medicine Hat with authentic, Italian food since 1981. Our delicious menu items are all cooked fresh, never frozen from our chef Mario’s recipes. Our restaurant strives to embrace the warm nature of a true Italian dinner, so we don’t close our doors until you are finished and satisfied with your meal.

Large Menus for Lunch and Dinner
Our restaurant is open for lunch and dinner, each meal with its own unique menu. Our authentic Italian pasta, chicken, lobster and veal dishes will delight any taste buds—every dish is made fresh. Many of our dishes, including salads, peppercorn steaks and desserts are prepared right at your table. All of our sauces, spices and salad dressings are made fresh in-house from Mario’s recipe book. Our spices are also sold in the restaurant so you can take the taste of Italy home with you. We support local vendors, purchasing ingredients from them whenever possible.

Gluten-Free Options Available
We have an extensive list of gluten-free options available on our menu, including pasta and bread dishes. All of our sauces are gluten-free, as well as our mouth-watering ice cream and cheesecake desserts. No matter your individual dietary restrictions, we will have the dish to accommodate your needs.

Live Music and Entertainment
Going to dinner can be about so much more than food—although that is an important part—and at our restaurant you can have that experience. We bring in local bands to provide live entertainment for our guests to enjoy while they dine.

Handicap Accessible
Our restaurant is available to rent for parties (80-100 people), corporate functions, weddings, birthdays and any other special occasion you wish to celebrate. Come by Mario’s Restaurant & Pub today to try our authentic Italian menu and enjoy our outdoor patio and terrasse. Our restaurant is wheelchair accessible, and free parking is available.
