We went out as family for my wife's birthday and she requested italian food. We had been by this restraurant many times in passing by on 441. We decided to give it at try. The interior is nothing fancy at all and the chairs and booths are aged. But this just gave the place its own character. The menu is... More

Had a chance to go back to the restaurant and it was as good as I remember. Use to go to this restaurant 25+ year ago when we lived in the area. Food just as great as I remember, much of the staff still there and of course it was great to see the owner again. Will be back there... More

Went here for a dinner with old friends. It has been 20+ years since we last ate here. Same owner, most of the same wait staff. The interior is in dire need of a facelift. The staff was fine, but ready to go home. The food........fair to bad. We all got the app, which is a quartered Cornish hen, then... More

My 9 year old son only eats chicken Francese at Italian restaurants. When we received my sons order, it looked funny and didn't taste anything like Francese, it had no taste and way too thick of a sauce with too much flour. My sister had snapper Francese and the sauce was a Francese sauce. When we complained they seemed defensive... More

Recently had dinner at Marino's. We were greeted and warmly welcomed by the owner and our server was fantastic. Too bad the food was poor at best. Our pizza was pretty good but the pasta dishes we ordered had absolutely no taste. Would not have minded too much except most dishes are $14 - $15. Way too much for a... More

I have been at Marino's restaurant a few times and have enjoyed it. The food is very good; the service also is very good. It is a quant place, fair prices and good menu choices. If you like Italian food, try Marino's.

We were lucky enough to run into a local at the Hard Rock casino who told us about this restaurant. Small, friendly, great food at a great price. The staff was friendly and we had a great meal. 1/3 the price of any restaurant at the Hard Rock. Two blocks away. A little to far for me to walk but... More

I was first introduced to Marino's via a LivingSocial deal. Now living in Fort Lauderdale, I had driven by the location dozens of times, but had never stopped in. The Living Social deal was attractive enough to make me give it a try and my only regret is that I hadn't tried it years earlier. The decor is straight out... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the world. When you are at Marino's, you are family. Every evening, the owner is present and checks up on how everyone is enjoying their meal, which is always a good sign. And the servers are super attentive and happy to explain the ingredients in every dish. Come hungry! Dinners come with... More
