Was there for a private party this week and thought the service, food, everything was horrible. Have been there several other times over the years and was SHOCKED by the evening spent at what we use to know as a great place to celebrate!!!! This will be my last time @ Marino's unless this establishment personally calls the host of this party and does something to take away the horrible memory of a party gone very bad!!! If you did not have the staff to serve and cook you should have done it yourself Mario Jr........the food was just plain terrible...........and the sevice was even worse....how can you do that to folks who have supported your establishment for so many years?

The Marino Family provides a genuine, impeccable Italian dining experience...an artform which has unfortunately been completely lost in the monotony of the massive chains and ego's of the ""Top Chefs"" restaurants of the LA. This family run restaurant is HANDS DOWN the best food, and dining experience in Los Angeles.

1/9/11 Saturday night, 8PM reservation. Obviously overbooked, a 40 minute wait. Bad service due to only 2 waiters and a party in the back room. I've eaten here for years. When the old man ran it, it was different. The son upsold me a bottle of character-less wine. Lately the prices are getting higher and the portions smaller. It's not a cheap place to eat, and I don't really see the need for me to return. This is LA...lots of other restaurants...

1st time here and very satisfied. I got a made to order eggplant parmesan dinner. It was really great. The tomato sauce was sooo good. It was a medium-red sauce as apposed to some other bright-red sauces I've had around town. It was DEFINITELY old school and traditional! Loved it :)

I have been ordering the pizza with sausage & mushrooms for a couple of years. I order it from the take-out which is right next door to the restaurant. It is by far the best pizza in LA. I have tasted them all from Spago to Mozza and I rather have a Marino's pizza. The owners/staff are always very warm & friendly. When I read the comments from the reviewer who gave Marino's 1 star I just had to put in my 2 cents. Can't imagine that happening.
I've never been a huge fan of "upscale" Italian restaurants that typically give you a small amount of average tasting food for a large price.
Marino on the other hand is a shining star, the food is delicious, the portions were generous and the service was superb. Highly recommended for a break from the norm.
