Very good food, however, I was very disappointed that the kalamata olives had pits in them. I almost broke a tooth! Our waiter was kind of terse.

My husband grew up in a true Italian family with the hub of life taking place in the kitchen. Our criteria for evaluating an Italian restaurant starts with their red sauce and Marinella's hit a home run. Just like Nonnie's "gravy"! Owners Joe and Anna brought their recipes from Italy when they moved to Glen Ellyn a few decades ago... More

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
