Rating Pizza is a very subjective task. Some people like Chicago style, some like thin-crust, some like extra cheese, etc. I asked a bunch of people where I can find the best pizza in the Capital District and likewise received a range of answer from people. A few did say Marino's so I decided to give it a try. I... More

I have been to Marino's several times including tonight. I love pulling into the parking lot and smelling garlic. Great pizza. Dinners are not at the level of Ferraris or Canalis but very good. These guys deserve your business, they work hard. Friendly service, good food. Cash only!

Okay...it has been years since I have had a pizza that mimicked my grandmother's. I have tried in other restaurants and at home many times but, could never get the crust to have a nice gentle crunch on the bottom. Marino's does it very well. I ordered a simple pizza (light on the cheese) with 1/4 of the cheese that... More

I'm working in the area and looked up "best pizza in Schenectady" and found Marino's. I got 2 slices and a coke at the counter. It was fine, but by no means the best pizza I ever had. This was not worth a special trip.

I come from down state and an Italian family. Life is too short to eat mediocre pizza. The pizza here is best I have had in the area. I have tried them all. Their parm heroes are excellent too. Big, beautiful, meaty and tasty. The eggplant parm is best I have had anywhere.

Went last night for a quick dinner. Pizza and salads are were the foods of choice. Antapasta here is wonderful, pizzas are delicious. The staff is extremely friendly and make you feel right at home. We have ordered in and done take out always wonderful.

Mario, Danny and Ben run one of the best restaurants my family has ever enjoyed - and we have enjoyed many restaurants the world over. What makes Marino's so special is not only the excellent pizza but also the high quality traditional Italian entrees including a loose sausage and mushroom pasta dish that you simply mus try. It is hands... More

My husband, daughter and I were in the mood for pizza, but we were very, VERY tired of the flabby take-out pies we’ve been getting and our other local places elicited yawns. A quick Google search for “the best pizza in Schenectady” turned up Marino’s. I read some promising TA reviews and made the executive decision to check this place... More

Ok, well this may be slightly misleading as I have yet to try anywhere else in Schenectady, but we found this place on a google search and OMG they seriously have the best pizza ever. Their homemade italian dressing for the salad is to die for, I swear I could drink it. I've also had the garlic bread with marinara,... More
