Food was delicious!! They’re gnocci and the lobster and crab linguini was amazing! It was extremely hot in there though and very dark and small and quite busy for a Sunday night but staff was great and service was good. Would like to go back in summer to sit outside.

The restaurant is lovely, our Server Sam was Excellent, the 3 choice gnocchi was amazing and I got the lobster ravioli special which was a little disappointing. I could not taste any lobster in the filling but the lobster sauce was delicious, finished with a piece of cheesecake. We will definitely be back to try out the patio.

Bistro di marino is an Italian staple for us. We love going in the summer and sitting in the patio. The special was braised short rib and parmesan risotto and O M G! I wish they would add that to the menu. The gorgonzola gnocchi is always amazing. Our calamari was a little over cooked this time but it's perfect 9/1 times.

The food here was fabulous! I had Lobster Fettuccine which included lobster, shrimp, crab meat, arugula and sundried tomatoes. The sauce was so good. The portion was enough for dinner the next day. My son had gnocchi which he raved about. We also had the shrimp pancetta appetizer which had a wonderful dijon sauce (we actually wiped it up with the warm rolls they put out with pesto). Also we had the stuffed longhots which were interesting stuffed with fennel sausage and onions again another interesting sauce topped it. Highly recommend it.

A group of three friends for dinner. Food was good. Service was slow but our server was very polite. Luckily my linguini with scallops, shrimp and crap was very good and lasted two nights. Two people had that exact dish. The other diner had salmon in a lemon sauce which she said was very good. It had crab on top of the salmon which she said it was all of two small pieces.
Food was good. Desert was limited we had cannolis 4 small pieces, split between 3 people. They were very good. One diner had cheese cake. Nothing special. We split the bill which came to $53 per person Which we thought was a bit pricey without cocktails. It is like all restaurants in Collingswoods a byob.

It was my first time here, but definitely will not be my last. The whipped ricotta appetizer was delicious. I’m still thinking about it.

It’s my third time there and the food has been outstanding every time. The waiter could have been more attentive. It’s BYOB so the total bill was $100.00 for the three of us. We sat in the main dining area and it was noisy however the other dining area when you first come in was very quiet. I will definitely continue to dine there. Truly a wonderful restaurant.

Bistro Di Marino has a menu focused on their strengths, including the outstanding gnocchi. Extremely well executed and great service. Very good value and it's BYOB, so a great 'find' restaurant to work into your rotation of staples.

Not our first time there. Food and service were excellent but tables very close together and very noisy. We sat in middle room. We had not been there since they broke through wall to enlarge restaurant and thought maybe the tables would a little more separated. Our plans are to come back in warmer weather and try the outside area.

It was too crowded. The table was crammed into the room and very low. The table was on our legs. No room in between the tables. The one chair was in the aisle so constantly was bring knocked into. Way too many private parties and could barely hear. Service felt extremely rushed!!! Like a drive through. Poor. I wouldn’t recommend.

Chase, was incredible and very knowledgeable about the menu. He made great suggestions for my first time and I truly enjoyed dinner. Although, I would have preferred the family with 3 noisy children be seated further away. I felt like I need to shout for my date to hear me.
