Four of us had dinner on a Monday night and the place was busy. Had a drink at the bar which was nice and then moved to the seating area for dinner. Good wine list. Food was good but for some reason I expected a bit better. Don't get me wrong...it was good and I would surely go back and... More

A large group of us visited Due Mari for dinner. All the standard Italian selections are available and are fresh and served swiftly. We were well looked after and all of us enjoyed our experience.

Due Mari remains a great "go to" lunch and dinner spot in New Brunswick. I continue to be impressed at the consistent, excellent quality of seasonal menus along with the wine selections. Definately a keeper.

We had a nice meal at Due Mari but the waiter had too many tables and was a bit confused. The homemade pasta dishes were very good.

The food was okay and portions were a bit too small. I could have gotten better food for a better price.

I had a family dinner here the other day. Oysters, as well as other seafood appetizers, a fried, breaded Veal chop with a very fine beer, followed by the best Adffogato dessert I had ever had. Stunningly good quality, generic but pleasant atmosphere. Pricey, to put it mildly.

Had the 4 pc prix fixe meal, was delicious! Good selections, wait staff was wonderful. A bit too loud and it took a bit too long but the food made up for it!

I had the corn soup which was delicious and an angus burger. The service is a bit slow but the food is very good. I would recommend this to others. Nice bar too for an evening drink.

I really enjoyed my dinner. The atmosphere is very chic and yet very friendly. My food was delicious and the service was just right. I had a nice salad and then a special mussel dish (appetizer size) that was fantastic. It was just the right amount of food to get two appetizers.

Thank tammy l
