Fabulous food! Everything we ate was delicious from the anti pasta appetizer to the chicken and definitely the homemade gnocchi. Service was wonderful. The only improvement could be the atmosphere. The decor inside is basic and sparse.

This was my first time there in many years. I love the look of the place with the exposed brick. It just feels warm and inviting. We had a reservation made weeks in advance and yet we were seated at a table practically in the doorway between rooms which wasn't ideal but worked out okay.

One problem with the brick walls and wood floor is it gets quite loud. They really need some sound-absorbing panels to tone it down so that folks can talk without straining.

Service was okay but not quite as good as it could have been. The wait times seemed uncomfortably long.

Our friends' appetizer (gnocchi trio plate) came out wrong the first time and they had to wait for it to be remade.

The food was excellent all around. I've got nothing but good things to say about the meal itself. From the bread to the gnocchi to the entrees to dessert it was all delicious.

Overall a very good meal. The only things that would have made it even better would have been a lower noise level and slightly quicker service.

This is our favorite place, period. I brought a cake that was special and they stored it until after dinner then even cut it for us when we were ready. Food is always great as well as the service.

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’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.
