Friendly and engaging wait staff; very accommodating to pre-theater diners. A perfect place for a bite before the show!

Excellent food, service and piano music. Lello and his team went overboard in making my wifes 50th birthday dinner special.
I highly recommend this restaurant.

My wife and I were at Da Marino and totally loved the experience. Difficult to decide which was better: the food, the atmosphere, the service. Perfect for after the theater.

Good old-fashioned service & charm
We chose this place based on SATC appeal but were wowed with so much more. We werent prepared for the good old fashioned fun which was in store but it was honestly the best time my husband and I have had in years. The entertainment was great, food was fantastic and the service was wonderful. On a high from Da Marino we walked all the way to Empire State Building then to our hotel on E 42nd & 2nd!

Piece of Italy in Manhattan
Great place if you're looking for an Italian restaurant in the heart of Manhattan, including really Italian food and live music.

We came with 4children, they were so accommodating even made a pasta dish that was not on the menu without any fuss. Location is great service wonderful and food was delicious. Can not wait to bring my husband.

We try to eat here every time we are in NYC. Wonderful food. Authentic Italian. Staff tremendous. Always greeted by management. A little pricy but even least expensive items on menu fantastic.

Our group went to DaMarino to celebrate an 80th Birthday before going to a show. We were treated with enthusiasm as we entered and was provided with excellent service by a charming waiter and other staff. The food was excellent! There was live piano music and the atmosphere was upbeat. I would definitely return against if I go back to NYC.

Great place in Times Square area
We loved this restaurant; great food, fun atmosphere and, on the Saturday night we were there, live music!

Good food, great service!
I found this restaurant while I was in Manhattan July 4th.
I was walking with my friends.
We were approached by Tom the maitre d. We came back later for a drink and to hear the piano player and the staff sing.
We had a great time.
The next night we had dinner. The pasta is so fresh.
I took my mother back the following saturday.
This restaurant is so much fun and great food too.

We went to this restaurant before going to Theater. 3 out of our 4 dishes were delicious. In my opinion the Osso Bucco had very little taste. The service was great. There was a piano player at the bar. When he played, the restaurant became very noisy. Our waiter was very personable and help made the evening. All the waiters sang "Happy Birthday" to my wife and daughter. Everyone sang on key.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Cozy and authentic
We visited recently and loved the food and ambience. We would absolutely visit again!
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM

We've been to NY many times and always eat at our favorites. We ventured out this time and were very happy we did. Food was exceptional and so was the singin!

Viva Da Marino!
I took the family out to celebrate my wife's birthday and everything from the service to the food was great. I/we can't wait to go back.
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Repeat out-of-town customer
The first time I went to this restaurant it was because it was near the theater. The food and atmosphere were so great I have been back 2 more times - one for a 60th bday celebration and just recently for my own birthday dinner. Obviously NYC is filled with numerous choices but this place is so fun, I will definitely be back. The service is fantastic and the singer with piano is so fun!

Excellent staff food. Group
Excellent staff food. Group of 6 and we loved it!! Rafael was a gracious host along with our waiter!!!

Lovely Italian Restaurant
I loved Da Marino. The service and the food was outstanding. The prices were reasonable,except dessert was on the high side.....and no cannoli.....Bummer. But that aside they gave complementary Champagne to start the kept the waters fresh, and the food was so fresh and tasty. I highly recommend Da Marino. There is a piano bar which added to the ambiance .

Great dinner in the Times Square
What a great dinner and experience. The location is perfect and the ambiance is exceptional. We enjoyed the music and loved the food. Yeah it's a little pricey but considering the location worth the cost. We will go back.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were in the city to see some shows and wanted a place close by to have a nice dinner. We surely accomplished that with Da Marino's! The atmosphere was fabulous - having that old world feel, but had I been there with my husband would have felt very romantic. The wait staff was very attentive and was right there if we needed something. I felt the prices were a little high but the food was great.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM

outstanding service, waiters were chARMING FOOD WAS DELICIOUS PRICES WERE HIGH

Took my daughters here for
Took my daughters here for dinner before a show. Food was delicious, we weren't rushed and the service was friendly and attentive. We'll go back again pre-theater for sure.
8/26/2013 5:00:00 PM
Good for theater goers
This was an excellent stop for lunch, before going to aq matinee.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food with an awesome atmosphere! Will go back when visiting NYC! Located in the heart of Times Square!
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
A must visit in NYC
Our family has visited DaMarino every year on our annual visit to Nyc....We move our daughter into Columbia University and celebrate the day at DaMarinos....Its pricey for us..but the service is amazing...the food delicious and a wonderful tradition for our family...
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful dinner - great food, wine and attentive service. Loved the live music/singing. Very nice for a pre or post theatre dinner. Romantic, but also great for families and special occassions. Loved the atmosphere.
8/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great food, wonderful service, waiters go out of their way to please. The osso buco was to die for as well as their raviolis. Great eats! Can't wait to go back next year.

Da Marino was an exquisite
Da Marino was an exquisite experience. The service was friendly and accommodating, the waiter made a point of asking if we were going to the theatre so he could serve our meal accordingly. We were not so it was served in a relaxed yet attentive manner. The owner stopped by to introduce himself. Your meal begins with a complimentary glass of champagne, followed by exceptional food, my husband even commenting that it was the best branzino he ever tasted. The chocolate cake we ordered, came surrounded by fruit as more of a dessert platter and was delicious. During the evening a piano player is providing quality entertainment. Totally a wonderful evening!
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
THE FOOD WAS OUTSTANDING AND WAS THE SERVICE....WAITER WERE VERY ATTENTIVE AND FUNNY. HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT. CANT WAIT TO GO BACK..

What a Find!
Stumbled upon Da Marino while planning a trip to New York last week. Reservation was for 9pm on a Sunday night, right after a show, and we couldn't have been happier. Food was fantastic, service was great and the atmosphere was so much fun! Little too pricey to make this a regular stop, but PERFECT for a night out on the town!
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
After theater, I was dining alone. The atmosphere is charming and the food really quite good. Service sketchy as they got busy and I was left too long with empty plates. The staff and manager seemed stressed, with ensuing discussions unfortunately that we're loud and disruptive, leaving me the decision to downgrade the ambiance. Otherwise, a bustling spot with great food.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
A special place for a special night
A great dinner celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary. We thoroughly enjoyed the fresh branzino drizzled with delicious olive oil while listening to the live piano. The server was attentive and friendly, and the piano player treated us to a song from our wedding -- Unforgettable!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Servers were prompt, attentive and friendly. Food was well prepared and plentiful. Has a live piano player/singer which adds a bit to the ambience and the noise level. Dubious choice.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
When we arrived, our table wasn't quite ready so the host brought us mini plates of pasta to hold us over. If the taste of the mini plate was any indication of what our dinner was going to be like, we were in for a real treat! We were not disappointed. Our food was absolutely delicious. We shared a crab cake appetizer, my husband had the lasagna and I had penne with mushrooms and asparagus in a light cream sauce. If I had to make one complaint it would be that the servers rushed us a bit for our order but the food came out fast and hot and let's face it, it was a Saturday night and they were busy trying to get everyone taken care of. I would definitely make this a regular stop during my visits to New York.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
I hadn't been to Da Marino's in many years, but we had friends visiting from out of state, so I took a chance and made a reservation. I'm so glad I did! The food was amazing and the service was wonderful. Our waiter and the other staff couldn't be more friendly. They were always stopping by the table to see if we needed anything or just to chat. I felt like we were old friends! Yes, it's a little pricey, but it was worth it. Our friends had a great time and got a wonderful impression of NYC!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really good food, beautiful place, increíble music
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
A little pricey...
The food was great and the ambiance amazing. The temperature in the restaurant was very warm - so it was a little uncomfortable. The prices were a bit high, even for NYC.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food good, but over-priced
We had a very nice experience at Da Marino's. The wait staff was attentive to our needs, making suggestions on what to order or what wine to pair with the meal. My only negative was the price. The food is good, but not for the money. We did not order the fried calamari for the appetizer because at $23 was too much. We did have the polenta with sausage which was very good...but still at $13 too expensive. Nice atmosphere and the live piano player was very good.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
A quick trip to Italy
honestly when you need an Italy fix this is the spot to run to.. the food is great, the music goes right to your heart and soul, for a tiny bit of time you are back in Italy... it's a very special place..
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Incredible service, delicious food!
A bit pricy but is worthed!!

Time Square Find
This is truly an authentic Italian restaurant. It has a very cozy atmosphere. For a family pre-New York Marathon pasta dinner it was the perfect spot.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
We chose the restaurant because of proximity to theatre and expected it to be a very touristy experience especially from the kitchy décor. We were very pleasantly surprised. The food turned out to be first rate. absolutely delicious rack of lamb. excellent and very friendly service, good recommendations from server and a fun environment, including a piano player. Be careful ordering, the portions are very large. We had a really good time.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
good for theater district
service was very quick and the food was actually much better than most theater district restaurants. Not a place for a casual quiet dinner though. In and out in 35-40 minutes--which worked since we had theater tickets.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had late night show tickets and decided to eat by the theater. It was also a birthday celebration so we wanted something nice but still casual, Da Marino fit the bill. The piano player, the host, and the waiter were all wonderful. The food was incredible, all six of us had something different and each person raved about their meal. We brought a cake and the waiter took it in the back and plated it with strawberries and a candle, it was lovely. The whole night was really fun we didn't feel rushed at all in fact we were a bit late for our curtain because we were having such a good time at the restaurant. We all have a great memory thanks to the staff at Da Marino.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was amazing and the wait staff was awesome! Can't wait to go again.
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Da Marino is a little gem in the heart of the theatre district. It's quaint and very cozy. A piece of Italy! You feel like family as soon as you walk in! The food and service were outstanding!! The guy at the piano was great and adds to the overall affect of this restaurant. I can't wait to come back the next time I'm in NYC!
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Generous portions in mid-town.
Cute, cramped Italian place in mid-town, right in the thick of the theater district. Comp glass of Prosecco was a nice start. We had reservations at 5pm and were seated promptly. Service was a bit slow -we were in no rush though-just saw a show. It quickly filled up after we were seated. It's a small wonder that the waiters do not bump into each other (or diners) when bustling about the place. Food was good, portions very generous and the wine was tasty. Meatballs were OK, was expecting better and husband's Osso buco was very good. Prices are expensive, but you are in NYC. I would suggest making reservations. It was very crowded when were left at 6:30 and I couldn't wait to get past the jammed bar area to get a breath of fresh air outside!

Classic family owned Italian
A real standout gem in the Theater District. Family owned and proudly operated, this restaurant serves up huge portions of very authentic Italian food. Service is a delight.
12/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
First trip. Will go back
Gotta have a reservation...food was good, service was ok (helps if you are a regular, but it's New York so we had no delusions), atmosphere great. If you want the feel of a local NYC Italian restaurant gotta stop once. Don't expect them to roll out the red carpet if you are an "out of towner". And this isn't a 5 star restaurant so keep expectations in check, but we had lots of fun.
