From the moment we walked in the experience was terrific. 5 stars in all aspects from our dining party. We ate on the patio - it was very lovely - a bit loud - but it is on a busy corner - if you want quieter eat inside. We had the sampler meat and cheese tray - yummy - a must. Also a must was the calamari and the bruschetta. I had the veal parma. basically it melted in my mouth. The other diner had seafood pasta - very yummy - actually all the meals looked wonderful. we will go back!

We ordered the fettuccini fungi, pasta Giovanni and two pizzas. We also ordered the caprise beet salad. The food was great. The mozzarella on the salad was to die for. The meatballs and sausage in the pasta dish were tender and flavorful. The pizzas were also very good. All the food was fresh. The service was pleasant and attentive. I would recommend this restaurant.

Found this restaurant through Trip Advisor reviews and made last minute reservations for 6 people - sat at the hightop table at the back and it was a cozy / relaxed dinner. Amazing lobster risotto, the Marinella's sauce was fantastic! - Creamy rosey and just tasty.

Others had the spaghettoni and meatballs - perfect portion sizes, delicious
Pizza was done to perfection with a chunky sauce, the tiramisu was home-made goodness! I will come back again and again - consistent food, service and a great location with a cute patio.

My friends and I went during the "Taste of Italy" festival and were only able to order off the special menu. Despite the restaurant being pretty busy, our waitress was very nice and attentive. Her suggestions about the menu were helpful and she appeared very knowledgable about the dishes.

I ended up ordering the Fettucine Chicken Alfredo which was absolutely delicious. The handmade noodles were the best part. Al Dente with just the right amount of sauce.

This Friday in a beautiful weather we went for a late night dinner on College. The usual spot to visit, is Marinella...service is impeccable, this time George took care of us. Besides the delicious entrées the special of the day was Surf and turf 14 oz. beef file with shrimp marinella and sautéed asparagus...was the crown of this feast...very tender and well seasoned meat, combined with the unique sauce, hard to find! At the end George made a orange - caffee martini blend...not too sweet, not too soury....just perfect!!! This is the way to finish a nice dinner! Excellent food, excellent service, very cozy atmosphere in the downtown area!!! Its a must visit place!!!!
