“Enjoyed a great meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

A gathering brought me to Marinelli's on a trip to Troy. It was a family gathering spot. They were able to handle a party of 100 with ease. The pizza was awesome. What a nice, family oriented restaurant.

“Just an OK dinner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

We did not want to wait a long time for a table one Saturday night in January 2013, so we started calling around the Troy area and Marinelli's said there was no wait. That made me a little nervous, but we decided to give it a try. I have to say we were less than thrilled, but the food was OK.

The interior looks like it is from the 70's and a little run down.

I had the meat calzone, which did have a lot of meat, but it was not flavorful. The sauce was rather bland and the sausage seemed cheap. I could only eat half the calzone in one sitting.

My wife had the pasta with lobster sauce since the lobster ravioli was not available. There was nothing wrong with the dish, but there was nothing special either.

“Great food, friendly/quick service and fun !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

I have been going to Marinelli's for 20+ years and enjoy it every time.
The food (quality and variety) the friendliness of the ownership and wait staff, the casual/fun atmosphere, the size and parking all are part of the Marinelli's dining experience.
I have attended several parties at Marinelli's also; they can be held there for a very reasonable price.

“Superb Italian cuisine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

Great wine selection and wonderful food. The baked pastas are spectacular and worth waiting for. The portions are huge, so you get value for the extra amount you're paying over some Italian chain restaurants. If you're taking a little one ... get the single meatball. It's almost as big as their head (well, almost!).

“decent but not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2012 via mobile

Food decent, walking distance to Embassy Suites, nothing else around that was decent so it has the area covered. Staff not very friendly and price is on the high side.
