Here at UpLevel, we teach youngsters the character and life skills to achieve their dreams.

Imagine a family activity that helps your kids build the important life skills that help them work hard in school. Respect parents and their teachers. Make good choices. Spend time on what matters. And make a difference in the world, confident in their abilities.

Sound like a tall order? Amazingly enough, it happens all the time here at UpLevel! Because we expect it.

We’re also different than your typical martial arts school because we foster a sense of community that is unparalleled. We’re like one big family!

Mario’s Italian Restaurant is family owned and operated by the Fisichellos who relocated to North Carolina from New York in 1984. John and Martha currently reside in Matthews and raised three children in Union County. All three of their children grew up in the restaurant business working alongside several of our staff members who have been with the Mario’s family for as long as 20 years.

We had many comments from patrons who wanted to be able to enjoy Mario’s food and drinks on nights out without the kids. The idea for an adult only addition to Mario’s developed from those requests. John’s Place offers the same menu as Mario’s for patrons 16 and over. John’s Place has a friendly neighborhood, casual environment. The warm, inviting atmosphere is a wonderful place to relax, watch your favorite sports and enjoy one of our many delicious entrees.
