Marino Ristorante is deeply rooted in the idea of doing all things the authentic Italian way. The family owned restaurant is giving its welcoming by Mario. The room is a blend of classic old school décor with soft colored walls, comfortable booths, and subdued oil paintings that all come together to create its appeal.
In the kitchen is Mario’s brother Sal, the chef who is out daily in the early morning markets personally selecting the ingredients for the seasonally changing menu and seeking out the most interesting and pristine items.
Placing yourselves in Mario’s hands for the tasting menus proves to be a wise decision. The Marino wine list has been repeatedly an award winner by Wine Spectator.

From the time of arrival without anyone attending the valet stand, to the hour+ before our order was taken, we felt forgotten. Cocktail order was incorrect. Bread arrived after an hour and after asking twice we finally received olive oil and butter, but the bread was finished. All orders were given to the wrong recipients. They raised the lights after we had been there for over 3 hours (due to slow service) to signal it was time to go. Our doggie bag was never brought out after requested and we just left.

It gets consistently great reviews, and yet know one I know had ever mentioned it…and I’ve lived in Hollywood for 20 years! We decided to take a chance and celebrate our anniversary there, and we discovered a best kept secret. Marino is my idea of a real restaurant…a breed that is disappearing fast. It's a small, sophisticated, white-tablecloth boîte that’s feels inviting from the moment you enter. Without exaggeration, every staff member treats you like a treasured guest. The cocktails are impeccable. The starters, entrees and desserts we all absolutely delicious, which says a lot, because classic Italian dishes prepared year after year can begin to lose their inspiration. And yet everything that came out of the kitchen was perfectly executed. And no wonder: Marino is a special occasion, family-run restaurant that has been at this for decades. They have the formula for convivial upscale dining down to a science…and art. The staff genuinely seem to like their jobs, value their customers, and take pride in their roles within in a very well-run establishment. Marino is not trendy, and it’s not the next new thing. If anything, it’s a throwback. So if you want an upscale neighborhood institution that isn’t resting on its laurels, Marino is an excellent choice. After one visit, it’s an instant favorite for date night, friend gatherings and family celebrations. They work very hard to deliver an elevated, old-school dining experience—and succeed! My only request for improving the already fabulous atmosphere is to lower the lights just a bit. As for the other patrons, there were: families, straight couples, gay couples, old folks, young-ish friend groups (30’s). And everyone seemed to be in on the secret: Marino is their happy place.

There is a reason Marino has been in business for about 40 years. It is outstanding on every level. We’re Not vegetarian but we had the vegetarian tasting menu and it was fantastic. Fresh and bursting with flavor and texture.

The best part was the complimentary bread. We ordered the Zucchini Blossom and CALAMARO GRIGLIATO for apps; The blossom was extremely greasy. The calamari was unimpressive. I ordered the FILETTO SINATRA which was ok - it definitely needed salt. My partner ordered the POLLO VESUVIO and they were baby chicken wings! I don't know how that isn't explained in the description (it's described as roasted chicken) as no one wants to pay almost $30 for chicken wings!

Food, atmosphere, service were all incredible. The chef, Sal, came out and introduced himself to us, and gave recommendations to my vegan wife. She loved all of them. Portions are much bigger than expected. Flavors are refined and not over or under seasoned. The seafood in my linguine pescado was some of the best I’ve had, specifically the shrimp and scallops. The chef came out again at the end and brought free dessert with him- tiramisu for the non vegans, and incredible lemon sorbet for my wife (so thoughtful!). Will be back again and again.

It is in walking distance from her apartment, so we decided to try it. We were greeted by a super friendly host (found out he is one of the owners, Mario) who sat us at a booth, and soon after, the amazing dinner began. Daniel, our waiter gave suggestions, and we ordered some of the specials-avocado with tuna tartar, pea soup, and the cauliflower mushroom salad to start. Delish! The ambiance, smiles from all the staff, and a great meal is a guarantee we will be back!

The service is second to none! Our waiter was very helpful making sure that some special dietary issues were taken care of. The kitchen was very agreeable to accommodate our needs as well. Last but not least, our food was prepared without any compromise, and tasted great. The menu for lunch was remarkably large. If you haven't been to Marino, it's your loss!
