A little bit about us...

Mario and Flora opened their first pizzeria "Mario's" in Detroit, MI. where they spend four years working before moving to Rochester, NY. In Rochester, they opened the "Carriage Stop Restaurant" in Henrietta. Shortly after, they opened another pizzeria called Mario's Pizzeria" on Monroe Avenue in Pittsford, where they saved enough money to open the legendary "Mario's Pizza and Pasta" on East Avenue in Rochester. After 16 successful years on East Avenue saving money, Mario went on to purchase land and construct his dream restaurant featuring his very own hometown classic cuisine and service of Abruzzi, Italy. In July of 1995, "Mario's Via Abruzzi" opened for business serving Rochester's finest authentic Italian cuisine, where Mario himself will tell you, "At Mario's you are not just a customer, you are my special guest." Five years later, Mario, along with his two sons Anthony and Danny, created a casual restaurant concept called "Bazil - A Casual Italian Kitchen." Bazil opened for business in March of 2002 and has since become another successful and popular restaurant in Rochester. A second Bazil location was constructed and opened September of 2004 in Penfield along with a new 186 slip marina facility with boat access to the restaurant. The Daniele Family thanks everyone who has ever dined in or been employed in their restaurants for their continued support, for without you all, there would be little success at all. Now you can also find the Mario's Italian Pasta Sauces at your grocery store. Thank you and Buon Apetito!
