We came here for dinner after wandering by it for years and always thinking we should try it. Finally, on Saturday, we tried it. It was very good. I would have rated it a little higher but the service was a little slow. I think that they were a server or 2 short which could have been the issue. I... More

Love their sauce. Great homemade soups. Excellent service and you can tell it is a family run place. We keep coming back year after year.

Great little Italian restaurant with unassuming exterior but delightful menu. Clearly family run with tradition and pride. We loved everything about it. The wait staff was pleasant and timely. Lots to choose from, good variety of wines, and great bread. Tab $100.00/table of four. Do Italian here..... No brainier.

This is my "Go To" place for any event when the restaurant choice is mine. My family always knows where to take me for my birthday! Enjoyed a Father's Day dinner at Marinella last week. Ate on their outdoor patio and had a delicious meal in a relaxing atmosphere. Their wine list is very good and reasonably priced. My wife... More

We often eat at Marinella's (Glen Ellyn, Illinois) and never tire of the food, drink, and great hosts (Joe and his family). i'm very particular about my Italian food and find Marinella's outstanding in quality and taste!

I'm a pizza junkie and I love their homemade pizza. Fresh homemade dough. It's a great local spot. The Italian food is fresh and enjoyable. The rotolo is very good. Outdoor seating in the spring, summer and fall is nice.

No need to dress it up. Marinella's is a comfortable family-owned restaurant with consistently good food and service. Good wine selection. Our favorite is to dine in the outdoor patio area in the summer and fall months. In the Christmas season, the family creates a huge enclosed nativity scene in an enclosed area that can be viewed on the patio... More

This restaurant has been serving our family for thirtyfive years in Glen Ellyn. They have good prices, and good pasta as well as chicken and veal dishes. Want a simple dessert, ask for a tray of cookies or a serving of gelato, which are available, but not on the menu.

This is a family run Italian restaurant with great food and a very warm, friendly staff. You can always expect to see at least one family member working there -- and you are often greeted by "Mama" at the door. Well worth the stop. In the summer, they have a really nice al fresco dining area. Even though the train... More
