“Fun Italian Restaurant in Theater District”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

Da Marino is a beautiful Italian Restaurant in the Theater District! We were greeted with complimentary champagne to start our dining experience. The food was outstanding. My husband and I both ordered "specials" of the day. I had the filet mignon and he had the fish. Both meals were excellent! The service was attentive and timed perfectly. We were not rushed. There was a piano player and singer that added to the ambience. The owner was continually making the rounds in the restaurant making everyone feel welcome. It was almost like we were dining in his home. The meal ended with complimentary lemoncello. It is a bit pricey but overall we felt it was an excellent experience. Be sure to check out the woman's restroom!!! It has to be seen to be believed!!

“A nice italian restaurant but with overpriced tourist prices”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

First of ave The Location is great to go for a nice dinner before a Broadway show. The waiter asked us if we wanna visit a show and for what time, which was really nice.

The service was very attentive, fast and friendly.

We were there in the evening where live piano music is played, what made a pleasant atmosphere.

The decor is very cozy, and the walls completely painted with landscapes, which seemed cheesy here and there a little, but it gave the narrow restaurant a certain something.

You should pay attention to the daily specials. It was certainly our fault not to ask for prices. Thus, the total bill for my taste for a rather average quality food quickly became a top quality price for Italians. Thus, unfortunately, was the feeling to be here fallen into a tourist trap.

What surely must happen sometimes ... But!


All in all nice.

“It was ok”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

The atmosphere was neat and I liked all the flowers in the entrance way, but the food was ok and overpriced for the quality. They gave us free champagne, minestrone, and bread. I don't need to go back.
