I have come to Marini's on several occasions. Every time I come, the quality of the food and the level of service is impeccable. First the food. There are a lot of choices on the menu but every empanada is fresh and the filling exquisite. The crust is puffy and a little chewy and combined with the filling it completes a great snack or a meal. I usually get their combo during lunch time, which includes two empanadas, soup and a desert empanada.
I really haven't tried anything else from the restaurant but with so many choices in empanadas I think it will be a while before I order something different. They cater to both vegetarians and carnivores, so come one come all.
Their service is also very good. Mr Marini, the owner, is normally at the Westchase store location and always comes out from the kitchen and greets customers, gives suggestions and makes sure that you have a good visit. This is a true example of a family run small business and I support is whole heartedly.
Overall a great foodie haven and excellent service. What else can you ask for?
