Diner Reviews
  • "We have been several times and enjoy the food although this time the Caprese salad was terrible---made with the worst of supermarket tomatoes and should not have been allowed to leave the kitchen. They are known for their gnocchi and they are quite good---we love to get the Misto (a sampling of 3) as an appetizer for our group."

  • "All appetizers were great! Gnocchi was to die for, antipasta for 2 was could easily feed 4, Mussels and Clams delightful! Only criticism Pork chop was slightly over cooked. Flounder and veal were delicious, sauces complimented the food."

  • "I've been to this restaurant many times and always left feeling like it was a wonderful dining experience. The fare is always outstanding, but so is the service and attention to detail. Whenever I have out of town guests, a reservation at Bistro DiMarino is always on the agenda during their visit. Everyone who's ever been there with me enjoyed the selection."

  • "Outdoor courtyard beautiful spot.....great vibe. Very tasty Sangrias etc now w/ NJ wines. Ambience outdoors heightened when they turned on outdoor music. Buggy outside, although eventually lit the outdoor tiki bug lamps. Food usually spot on but was a bit off on Sunday. Seafood pasta special too spicy for my mom, so it went mostly uneaten (great dish otherwise). Waiter needs to communicate if it's spicy when selling it & the veal Milanese which is described as (and typically has) diced tomato/ bruschetta mixture on top instead came with whole slices of tomato and dry arugula. Most of the food ( party of 9) was great but my family not impressed due to the 2 mishaps. It was a special occasion and they would not complain."

  • "We went to celebrate a birthday and the guest of honor was impressed with both the food and atmosphere. As other reviews have said, it was a 15 minute wait to eat outside but definitely worth the wait! The patio is amazing; we will definitely dine here again. The service was a bit slow as some reviews mentioned. However, the food was delicious, the gnocchis lived up to their billing and prices are reasonable."

  • "We love it here. The owners are great, always make us feel welcomed and like family. The food is to die for and the deserts are so tasty. We recommend everyone to try it out."

  • "We went for our anniversary and loved it. Appetizers were wonderful. We ordered the shrimp with pancetta in mustard cream sauce and the flatbread pizza with prosciutto, melted cheese and arugula. The appetizer size homemade gnocchi but it was a pretty hefty portion. Also got the traditional meatballs, made of beef/pork/veal. They give you four large meatballs with great sauce and fresh basil. Collingswood is a "dry" town, so this is a BYO (which I always prefer), but they do have a license to serve New Jersey wines. Also have a menu for pitchers of different sangrias. Lovely little place, great ambiance and service and really nice outdoor seating area. Reasonable prices. You can also take out. Definitely go back again soon."

  • "I have been to this restaurant many times and have always had a good meal. Service started out fine but once our meals were served, we were clearly in Siberia. No one refilled our water glasses, not pleasant with a spicy entree, no one asked if we wanted more sangria. We truly were completely ignored from that point on. Waiter initially blamed other staff for not refilling water, but eventually took ownership, but had no excuse. What it more frustrating is that there were several staff members that seemed to be just milling around a grill and server area on the back deck. The back patio is lovely, the food is good, but I have not had service this neglectful in a long time and sadly will make me think twice about recommending."

  • "First time dining outdoors at this place. It was wonderful. At dusk when the lights came on it was romantic even though there was four of us! Our server, Tim, was excellent. Found nothing wrong. This was a Deja vous for me. As a child I played many times in that backyard with my cousins!"

  • "The food and dining experience at Bistro Di Marino is always consistent. Our dining guests visited the restaurant for the first time and we're simply amazed. They will definitely be back to the Bistro! The menu offers classic to more creative contemporary Italian choices. In addition the wine cocktails are refreshing and delicious."

  • "I accidentially made a reservation for Wednesday so I went in to modify and make it Thursday. It said nothing was available. I called the restaurant and they took my reservation (after waiting on hold for 10 minutes!!) only to find out the hostess had no clue what she was doing and there was actually a private party that day so we could not dine there. Clueless. Won't go there again."

  • "I made a reservation at Bistro Di Marino particularly to sit outside in their gorgeous back patio. To my dismay, it was a rainy night and we couldn't be outside. However, we had a wonderful dinner inside. The food was delicious and the service impeccable. My only complaint was the table behind us consisting of about 12 very loud men celebrating a birthday."

  • "This restaurant is one of our favorites. Loved it the first time we went and the rest is history. WE had the meatballs, salad, salmon, flounder and the grilled calamari, artichokes, asparagus and eggplant....this was one of the most delicious dishes I have ever had......this restaurant is the whole package....OUr waiter Michael was fabulous as all the others....thank you Bistro Di Marino for making our evening special."

  • "Get the gnocchi! At least for an appetizer, so good!"
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Very disappointed that even though I specifically requested seating in the courtyard, we were not given a table in the courtyard. When I asked why I was seated inside the hostess said nothing was available in the courtyard. I was not aware that you can not reserve courtyard seating - the waiter informed me of this. I checked outside after seated and there were several empty tables. Needless to say, I was annoyed. I was never given the option of waiting for a table outside."

  • "The food was incredible. It was a girls night out. Our waiter was awesome, friendly and , attentive. Even our greeting from the matre'de . It's not the first time I was there and it won't be the last."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "The hostess brought us to a table inside. We asked for one outside and she said it would be 15 minutes. No problem. She sat us in under 15 minutes in the courtyard at a corner table. It was about 10 minutes before our server (whose name started with a T) even acknowledged us. It was another 15 minutes until we placed our food order and that only happened because I flagged him down. We ordered an appetizer and entrees. He took our appetizer plates away and then we didn't see him again until he took our entree plates away (thanks for making sure we didn't need anything). We skipped dessert. With so many great restaurants in the immediate area you really can't afford to have horrible service like this. We won't be back anytime soon if ever."

  • "Lovely little BYO with great friendly service. Gnocchi is the specialty of the house and shouldn't be missed. Meatballs also delicious. Ask for prices on the specials so as not to get sticker shock when the bill arrives. Specials are at least 1.5 to 2x the price of other entrees so beware. Great little find. Will be back to sit in the lovely outdoor garden."

  • "I had the chicken with smoked mozzarella & topped with asparagus & fired roasted peppers cooked in a white wine sauce. It was an incredibly tasty dish. My husband ordered the thick on bone pork chop special wrapped in bacon topped with sharp provolone cheese. He also really enjoyed his meal. Our son bought a gift certificate for Christmas for Bistro di Marino. We truly enjoyed our meal."

  • "Dinner was outstanding and Bistro never seems to disappoint. My wife ordered the salmon with crabmeat special and it was fantastic. The chicken parmigiana may have the best I have ever tasted. The only thing we missed was the ability to eat outside in the courtyard, which unfortunately was hosting a wedding. "

  • "Fantastic Experience. Loved the exposed brick ambiance, it was a very lovely atmosphere... A little loud at first but it felt like I was at a good old fashioned Italian dinner party so I was okay with it. The food was PHENOMENAL. Perfect portion sizes, delightfully flavorful, very good quality and it just melted in our mouths. (...did I mention the homemade gnocchi was to die for? Try gnocchi sampler as an appetizer, you can choose three styles.) Our server was a little over worked and forgetful, (perhaps he was just having a moment) but he was extremely nice and charming so we quickly forgave him. Will absolutely be back. "

  • "Excellent food as always but our waiter left a little to be desired. We were a party of 6 so he had a guaranteed tip of 20% and did very little to actually earn that tip. Wouldn't keep me from going back because our family loves the place but I was disappointed in the service we received from our waiter. "
