I've had lots of italian traditional and even fake such as local chains that claim they are italian cuisine. I also am a cook and attended culinary classes myself. The chicken aldredo was the best I have ever had perfectly portioned not over sauced and lots of flavor. Pizzas were incredible, there is not one thing I would say negative about marinos. I recommend it to anyone who wants great italian food.

My wife and I's food was just drenched in cheese. Couldn't taste anything else besides that.

Marino's still offers its same great Italian menu (the baked cavatelli with sausage is not to be missed), the same great fresh-from-the-oven and chewy breadsticks, and the same iceberg lettuce salads swimming in dressing. But it's lost a bit of its former charm with its expansion to larger digs next door. I miss bringing in my own bottle of red wine and being given a corkscrew and red plastic tumblers to drink it out of. Service (which was never really a problem for patrons who were patient and understood what made the place special) seems to have improved with the move. The pastas, pizzas, and calzones are still top-notch. It's always surprising to me that more people don't know about this place. Check it out!

Do yourself a favor and just go here. Very, very small - wonderful food and super service.

Very YUMMY... but the atmosphere kind of leaves something to be desired.
