Mazilu started his career at Sportul Studenţesc in 1999. In the 2005–06 season, he was the leading goalscorer in the Romanian Liga I scoring 22 goals. The following season, he was taken to FC Rapid București, where he played for two years playing 34 games and scoring 18 goals. On 12 January 2008, Mazilu was transferred to the Ukrainian club Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk for a fee of €4 million, the highest fee received by a Romanian football club at that time.
