Bistro di Marino is my kitchen. It’s where I get to do what I love and share it with all who pass through its doors. As you read this, we are busy in the kitchen pouring our hearts into our food. This is a love affair that goes back for many, many years and if you haven’t yet dined with us, consider this an invitation to experience four generations of my family in the place I call home.

Mangia! Mangia!

Food is delicious very nice staff and clean . Can’t wait for the warm weather as I was told they will have an outside patio and I’m sure that will be just as comfy .. after dinner they give you a small complimentary chocolate cello that is delicious only bad thing on that is it’s too small because it’s so good you want more👍😀

We went during the "corona" scare and found things to be very well taken care of. We had been before and welcome a new "good" place to eat . Our waiter John "I think" was very nice and friendly. Kind of asked for a slight change to item I ordered and they tried to accommodate me as best they could which was very nice. We will definitely be back when things are back to "normal".

Our first visit. The food , service and environment was very nice. We had a great delicious meal and enough to bring home to enjoy a second time. Our server was friendly and very efficient. Highly recommend this restaurant. Great experience. We will definitely return.

We were the first customers of the previous restaurant, that lasted just a few months and heard nothing but praise for the new place. In fact, it's nearly impossible to get a reservation there on the weekend at this point. We barely got in on a Tuesday night.

Internally very little had changed. It appears they added sound baffling to the ceiling, but that's not going to do much for the noise problems in that space as it has hard floors and walls with almost nothing on them. The noise made it difficult to talk and really took aware from the experience. Hanging tapestries or more baffles on the walls would fix the issue.

The menu is solid with lots of varied options and compelling choices. We had a diner with us with very specific allergy needs and the staff was more than willing to meet those needs, though not without missteps (an appetizer was incorrectly prepared but they quickly replaced it). Our server was extremely pleasant and clearly concerned about our happiness. She was so nice, but also new and made several errors through the meal. Time will fix that.

The prices were decent with lots of items of different price levels. I wouldn't call the prices inexpensive though. The food itself tasted great with a nice presentation.

All in all, it's a solid addition for the township, but it could still be improved upon with some simple adjustments. This is a layout that could be quite cozy if the owners take steps to get the noise down.

Excellent food!! Had a great time. Our waitress was extremely ice and we didn’t feel rushed. In fact I think we were the last to leave. Can’t wait to go back.👍

I have dined twice here and both times were amazing. The only complaint was the hostess said they did not have our reservation. She continued to tell me that she knew reservations only went up to 7:30pm that night. I had to pull my phone out and show her for her to even seat us. She never looked in a book or computer system to even check for us. she just “knew” off the top of her head. It wasnt the best way to be greeted with first thing. The food was still amazing

My husband and I went 2 weeks in a row and we will continue to come back. The food is AMAZING and the service was wonderful, professional but not to high maintenance. We had Chris and he was probably one of the best servers we had anywhere. The place it self is so relaxing and we are SUPER excited for them to open the outside.
Washington twp needs this place because there is no other like it around

As always amazing food with outstanding service. The gnocchi's and meatballs are always a must at every visit!!! Jake our server was attentive and polite without being smothering. When making future reservations, we will definitely request Jake as our server. Complimentary chocolate caramel cello was a nice touch at the end of a very delicious meal!

This was our first time at this establishment and we will probably not go back. For a byob I feel like you should not need to ask for an ice bucket for your white wine. This was just a sign of what was to come. Our waiter was awkward at best. While everyone needs to learn how to be a waiter at a nicer byob the wait staff should have some experience talking to tables. The food was also disappointing. I ordered a stuff flounder special. The flounder was over cooked while the stuffing part was super heated. Once I let the stuffing portion cool down the stuffing part was good but the damage was done to the flounder. My wife got the pasta special and it was just bland. Right after the food runners brought our food out our waiter appeared with “heated” towels. Great touch just bad timing. Rather then making sure our food was good we got distracted by the hot towels. The desert was good we got a chocolate fudge cake that was moist. There was no ice cream served with it as our waiter told us that they don’t have ice cream when we asked what they did have for dessert. Overall awkward service and bland or over cooked food as specials

Great service. The food was good. A bit pricey for pasta but good. Lighting could use some work for the tables along the wall in the middle of the place. It was dark at our table. Everyone was friendly and detailed. Nice visit.

What a new gem to Washington Township. Food is tasty pricing is reasonable atmosphere is relaxing. Chicken marsala was tender with plenty of mushrooms and flavor. First time I've ever had gnocchi and itwas amazing we share it as an appetizer they are described as little pillows of Heaven

We heard good things and Bistro DiMarino in Washington Township lived up to the hype! The food was fantastic - from the dinner rolls all the way to the dessert, everything tasted great. It was also very filling. The leftovers were just as tasty the next day! As a BYOB, the check was a very reasonable price. The only blah was the $2 for the box apple juice. The boys sucked them down, so that hit us for $8. In closing, the server was very sweet and didn't give any mind to our five year old and 17 month old who can cause a ruckus when my wife and I want to take a break to eat out.

This is my absolute favorite Italian restaurant in the area. We live the one in Collingswood and this new one did not disappoint. The gnocchi are the best anywhere, and so are the meatballs. Our waiter, Jake was really friendly and helpful. We’re so excited about the new location, and we can’t wait to return.

Service was great... our waiter John was very personable and attentive. The food was just ok, nothing exceptional. We both had a fish special and the sauce a bit bland. It was supposed to be topped with crab meat, but I didn’t see much if any on mine. Very big portions at a reasonable price though.

We went to Bistro DiMarino to celebrate our anniversary and it was wonderful from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. The food was delicious and the service outstanding. Everyone from the hostess, our waiter, Aaron, and the remaining waitstaff were very friendly and made our anniversary dinner a great time. We’ll definitely be going back...again and again.
