I was really pleased overall. The outside was very nice. The server knew the menu well. My only negative is service was really slow so make sure you give yourself time. But we will definitely go back.

Bistro di Marino is one of my favorite restaurants in Collingswood. The food is excellent as is the service. We requested outdoor seating when we got there and they were able to accommodate us.

We were very disappointed in Bistro Di Marino on Friday night. We had a reservation for 7:00 and showed up a little after 7:00, but a table wasn’t ready for us. We had two kids with us and waited close to 45 minuets but still no table. We ended up leaving at 7:45 and then went to Centanni where we were sat right away. We were given no explanation as to why they weren’t able to honor our reservation other than “the party isn’t ready to leave so we don’t have a table for you.” Even though the front room had plenty of empty tables, the hostess told us the owner didn’t want to open the room up - in my opinion, your customers are the most important part to a successful
Business. We were celebrating a birthday so that severely dampened our mood and may affect us returning in the future.

We were pleasantly surprised when we try this new restaurant that had been recommended by friends. The food was outstanding as was the service on the setting. Even great outdoor seating is available for dining! We will definitely go back there again soon

We didn’t realize that we were making a reservation during Restaurant Week in Collingswood, but we were able to get a reset for four on a Wednesday night. We loved everything about it - the food, the service and the quality. Our friends wanted specific entrees but wanted to change the sauce. No problem! They were very accommodating.

Great meal except the salmon was a little disappointing. It was overcooked after ordering it rare. It was also very thin and skimpy but the sauce on it was very good.

Went for Easter Dinner, I was glad to see they had their regular menu offering. Cozy setting but not too cramped. Our waiter Chris was great. Antipasto is a MUST! Cant wait to try the patio this summer.

Excellent experience and meal at this BYOB. The appetizers were interesting (cheese w fig spread and gnocchi-so amazingly light). All of us enjoyed our entrees tremendously. The pasta here is really amazing. The setting is plain and seats are not the most comfortable, but the food and the value warrant a return trip.

We thoroughly enjoyed dining at Bistro Di Marino. First of all, it was so easy to get a reservation via Open Table. Then, we were early enough to find street parking. The food was delicious and service, excellent. We also love the BYOB! We will definitely return.

They always take care of customers, there were large parties, so 20 minute delay in seating from reservation time. They provided a free antipasto plate. The service was excellent as always. Good food selection. The veal dish was excellent, the gnocchi dishes are wonderful, very light and tasteful. Hopefully will try the outdoor seating soon. Only draw back is the noise level, very high. We love the Collingswood location, nice to walk along street

Wonderful food and good service, unfortunately even with a reservation our table was right at the front door. Lucky for us it was not too cold outside, but people waiting for their table kept bumping into my husband.
They seem to try to fit to many people in the small front room. We we told that in a few weeks they will have the patio open and they will have more room but that didn't help us this week.

The food is very good here - we enjoy their veal, seafood and pasta dishes; and the appetizers are generous enough portions for 2 to share. Their gnocchi is great with lots of different choices - my only negative comment is that I would've liked it better if it was cooked slightly more al dente. The service here is also very good - even when it's a full house we've never felt ignored and the food has always come out hot. I've recommended this restaurant to friends and they enjoyed it immensely. Also, it's a BYOB without any corkage fees - so bring a nice bottle of red and enjoy!!

Usually my experience is very good at Bistro DiMarino..not this time, veal was dry & over cooked, service was poor because it was so busy...they need more food servers! Server never checked on us to see if we were happy with our meal!! Sorry, but that’s FOOD SERVICE 101!!!

I've been to Bistro before and everything went but this time it was a disaster! For starters, We hated the placement of our table. Next, my husbands salad tasted like a bag salad from the supermarket and the rest of our meal was just ok. Lastly, they were running very behind on reservations (an hour at least) so people were coming in and out complaining which was very disruptive to the romantic birthday dinner my wife and I were trying to have. Very disappointed!!

The server was terrific from attentiveness to personality. The gnocchi are the best ever, so light and prepared in very tasty recipes, if you don't want to over do it on the pasta they have an appetizer sampler of 3 choices or just one. My friend & I had a veal dish and it was perfectly prepared, even the left overs were delish. My husband and the rest of our friends had different meals from lasagna to clams in a white wine garlic sauce and everyone was pleased.

The best restaurant in Collingswood, bar none. We live here in town and we have tried all of them, and most are very good, but the Marinos do it right. Everything we order here, from antipasto through dinner and into dessert is absolutely delicious. Jim is an unbelievable chef, and Michael and the staff make us feel like they invited us into their home. Our relatives in Philly say the food is better than anything they have over there, and the friends we bring here rave about the experience. Can't wait until spring so we can sit out on the beautiful patio.

Delicious experience! The gnocchi is outstanding! Definitely order the sampler. This is a gem that can easily be missed due to its location.

We will definitely be back! Had no room for dessert, but it also sounded amazing. Another advantage - BYOB!
