Best place for lunch or a take-away dinner in Airlie/Cannonvale. Make sure you go on a Friday for the gnocchi.

When you want some real food and it is lunchtime do you grab something really fast or do you drive across our little town to get a Marino's creation.
Friends drive or walk around to Marino's and know what day of the week his handmade gnocchi is served. Marino himself usually wears his Mr Grumpy shirt to cheer himself up as he labours over his special gnocchi and happily sells out quickly.
The 'every local follows' in the title is also a friendly swipe. Marino's place burnt down earlier this year and the community was aghast.
"How will I live without Marino's gnocchi, where will I have some nice lunch?" blurted my wine soaked sometimes companion.
But a quick fix was on the way . . .
A nearby restaurant was empty and soon occupied. The customers followed and are happy with their Marino's food fix until the burnt shop rises from the ashes, phoenix like.
And Marino's customers will follow. And so should you.
Marino's Deli is located in the Whitsunday Shopping Centre, Cannonvale, Town of Whitsunday

Food is always amazing at marinos... But sometimes the service from the younger girls can by quite poor and sad to say but slightly rude .. Won't stop me from eating here though.
