The luxurious experience features exciting live music as well as fresh Italian food prepared with the love and wealth of knowledge that Chef Pasquale has gained from studying the art of Italian cuisine in Calabria, Italy. Chef Pasquale only uses the best ingredients to create this masterful cuisine. Our melt-in-your-mouth mozzarella comes from Naples, our tomatoes are picked from the finest vines of Italy and our bread and pasta are mad in-house.
We welcome you and hope you will come join us.
The food was amazing, the service perfect and the music enjoyable. First time and I will return
Would go back!
Best in Midtown! LOVE Da Marino -- Highly recommended.
In the theater district, it’s convenient and adequate, but not a destination establishment. They’re best at overpricing, but the food was above average, but not special. The bread, which is the easiest to make good, was pedestrian blah. Drinks were expensive and sparse. No need to return as many others provide same fare for a smaller mortgage.
Staff was all friendly, welcoming and professional!
NYC's best, complete with an old-school piano player (Dennis) that conquers the American Songbook nightly. You won't regret a stop here.
Always a great time !!
Warm and friendly. Attentive service and great food.
Delicious food, friendly waitstaff and love the ambiance!
Noisey, ravioli cold inside. Person taking reservation was a little abrupt. Tables close to each other, not romantic. Close to theater which was a plus. Mediocre at best. Many other places better than this spot.
Our server helped himself to money off a visa gift card without our permission and knowledge and even lied to us about the available amount on the card.
Amazing location for theatre shows, especially Book of Mormon and Chicago. Found the menu a little limiting (pastas were mainly just in tomato or olive oil sauces) and no pizzas, but what we did order was very tasty and high quality. Staff were FANTASTIC and the atmosphere in the restaurant was buzzing.
Da Marino has become our favorite spot in NYC for a guaranteed fun evening!
Valentines and 30th birthday, outstanding service and welcome from waiters managers and owners. Real New York Italian experience
Awfully cheesy dining experience in the middle of Times Square. Not like a haven in the middle of Times Square; more like a chaotic part of it. Food was well below average. Not even good for a dinner before a show.
Waitress should be friendlier.
Chicken should have been pounded out thinner.
We arrived for our reservation and were placed in literally a hallway with no space at all so crammed I could touch the wall on the other side. Ordered the prime rib and ravioli and notified our waiter that the prime rib was the fattiest cut of meat we had ever had he didn’t seem very phased by the review asked if we wanted to speak with the manager which we declined but after getting our bill and paying $ 55.00 for that prime rib we definitely should have. Very disappointed in the restaurant, does not live up to the reviews that enticed us to visit in the first place. Way over priced for less than stellar food definitely won’t recommend or be back.
Host was a little obnoxious. Was obviously frustrated when I refused to sit at the bar. I had a reservation. The bar stools have no back and I need back support. It set the tone for the whole experience. I felt unwelcome and pressured to be quick to give the table back.
The restaurant itself was fantastic and I would highly recommend, HOWEVER, the ambiance was ruined by the TERRIBLE PIANO PLAYER. He was not a great singer but what made it worse was how unprofessional he was. He kept interrupting his own singing and playing to have side conversation with the restaurant staff. In many cases he stopped right in the middle of a song and proceeded to have a conversation OVER THE MICROPHONE. It really ruined the experience of the evening. It's not like it's a cheap place, it's a nice restaurant with good food and hefty prices, which would have been worth it, had he not been there.
Mother daughter trip to NY and we ate here between Part 1 and 2 of Harry Potter. This was an incredible meal with an incredible atmosphere. We felt so welcomed and treated and they kept our leftovers in the fridge for us so we could come back after the show to get them. We didn't end up making it back because it was pouring rain and we just wanted to get back to the hotel and get warm and dry, but this was a fantastic restaurant and we can't wait to head back to NYC and pay Tim and the rest of the staff a visit!
My favourite Italian in NY. The homemade lasagne is the best i have ever had and each time i come to NY from England i make sure i come.
See you soon.
This is a charming place, cozy and relatively quiet with great food and excellent value. the staff are efficient and friendly - very helpful with menu options. Our meals were hot, delicious and authentic.
Can't say enough good things - except to say, I'd go back in a heartbeat.
Wonderful lunch with my sisters prior to start of play. Service was excellent, our waitress suggested a special, which truly was special-deliciousness!
Our meal was outstanding and we never felt rushed. Would look forward to returning for dinner!
There's just something about this place that keeps me going back time and time again. Is it their location? Well, yes, there's that. They are right in the heart of the theater district. Is it their service? I guess there is that as well. The entire staff goes out of their way to watch every detail to help make your evening perfect. But the big reason of course is the food. There are some very unique items that no other restaurants serve. (Who gives you lentil with their homemade bread or Chocolate Fettuccine aside from Da Marino?) But me, I can't resist the Osso Bucco served over risotto. Every single time it's perfect. When dining out, especially in NY always look for quality first. You'll never be sorry.
Da Marino's was everything you would want in an Italian Restaurant! The food, ambiance and service was exceptional! We will be back!
Lovely homey atmosphere, with the most awesome food. Chicken Marsala to die for. It's a bit noisy, especially near the bar and piano, but the visit is well worth the trip.
Our waiter John was very attentive. The owner made a suggestion for a replacement for saffron because my husband is allergic. Not many places will accommodate. They were amazing and we will definitely go back
The negative - we arrived for our 5:45 reservation to be greeted by chaos and a 45 minute wait. There is really nowhere for people who are waiting to gather, so it felt like we were part of a cattle round-up, squeezed tightly together between a wall and a bar, as multiple parties were waiting for their reservation. The maitre d was loudly criticizing/blaming a "large party" that "wouldn't leave" for the problem, but there were so many people waiting, it seemed impossible that this could be the singular issue. We were all just left to wait with little communication or apology, served by a bartender who was efficient, but not particularly friendly. So, this was not a great start to a birthday dinner celebration.
The positive - once we were seated, we enjoyed ourselves. The atmosphere was cozy and live music and commentary from the piano was fun and festive; this element really makes the place. Decor - think painted Italian murals and faux grapes. Our server, again, was efficient, but not particularly friendly. The food was good; not amazing. And, I will say that even though I had written in the Open Table reservation notes that we were celebrating THREE birthdays, this was never acknowledged (although other birthdays around us were). So that was a disappointment.
Takeaway - I would still recommend, as there was something about the overall scene, once seated, that was upbeat and cozy -- it's like happy, crowded chaos in there. Once you get a table. Until then, we weren't so happy.
Loved it! Excellent food, energetic atmosphere, warm attentive service.
Always friendly and great food great drinks and great people you’ll feel like your one of the family
Great, friendly staff. Great food.
Entrees are excellent. Desserts are mediocre so pass on them. Serving sizes are very large. Seating is very close. Not a good place for conversation.
Very accommodating. Good service and food. Pricey, though the portions are large and meant to be shared Wonderful piano player who also sings great tunes from the American songbook
All in all a nice experience
It was delicious but a bit cheesy on the decor.
Delicious food and impeccable service! The hostess, manager, waiter, bus boys and piano player were friendly and professional! It was a busy Saturday evening...pre and post theater diners. We still felt welcomed and special! Thank you Da Marinos for making our trip to New York memorable!
Visit this restaurant every time we are in NYC. Simply delicious!
We made reservations several weeks prior and had tickets for a show after dinner. When we got to the restaurant there were a lot of people crammed into the bar area, the only place to wait. I had to hunt down the hostess and let her know we were there. I asked her how the wait was going to be and she said it would not be too long. After waiting for 45 minutes and speaking with others waiting for a table I realized that they had no intentions of honoring our 6pm reservation because it was already 6:45 and there were several parties who had early reservations still waiting. I finally found a manager and he was rude and said everyone will get seated.
Needless to say, we had to leave without eating. Believe it or not but we have never had such a crappy experience at a restaurant in NYC.
DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME. There are way too many restaurants in NYC that will honor their
reservations. Totally ruined our night. We didn't end up eating dinner that night until 11pm. Thanks Da Marinos for being liars. Had you told us when we walked in that you were running behind I would have been upset but thankful for your truthfulness and respect for our time.
MANAGER AND HOSTESS TOTAL LIARS AND EXTREMELY DISRESPECTFUL.
