Fri, Sat 11:00 am–1:00 am
Food was amazing, felt like a hole in the wall place only locals went to so it was nice as a tourist stumbling upon it instead of eating a generic Italian restaurant. It was busy when I went but I had made reservations 45 minutes before hand and my table was ready when I got there.
Fun, bustling place with great athmosphere. High noise level, in case that bothers you (didn’t bother us). Food is really good, and the portions sounds pricey on the menu, but they are very generous, as are the wine pours. I will be coming back! Wonderful waiter.
When making the reservations, I mentioned that it was a birthday, but they didn’t do anything for that. A little disappointing, especially at an Italian restaurant who normally are very good at doing something special.
We had a great time, though.
Great night before the show
The atmosphere was warm and intimate. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The food was well prepared. Drinks were generous
The manager Brittney was rude and had the absolute worst attitude. Service was atrocious. Food mediocre. Never eat there.
Great food and awesome staff ! Piano player was fantastic.
Absolutely great service and the food was absolutely delicious!
We were there on a busy Sunday night in December.
The bartender was surly, the host was rushed and stressed (and we had to remind him of our reservation threeTimes), and our server was nowhere to be found much of the time. The place was overcrowded and tables right on top of one another. Food was ok. Not impressed and would not recommend or go back.
Small space but very accommodating staff and terrific food!
Unfortunately this place was not very good. Maybe some staff were away but to even order took 30 minutes at least. We witnessed 2 tables walk out, our meals were wrong and the server basically thought we lied about our order. Even the bill was for the wrong table and took another 10 minutes to get the correct one. Very loud pianist playing and very cramped seating with tables about 20 inches square. Bar unattended as well and people all looking at each other with the same look of despair. When we arrived there was only 2 other tables of 2 so you can imagine what happened when other diners arrived.
Very good , piano player was fun
What a wonderful classic New York establishment. We were seated near the piano and thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment and atmosphere. The restaurant was bustling and the staff was energetic and attentive. The food was top-notch and the wine selection by our waiter was perfect to accompany our food selections. The tiramisu and cannolis for dessert top everything off perfectly. Highly Recommend.
I’m very disappointed In the food the Marsala had no flavor the bread was not warm the tiramisu was soggy not fresh maybe frozen! The waitress at was not very knowledgeable. When we questioned her about romaine we were told they weren’t serving it , even by the manager we received romaine and we were told it wasn’t romaine but they had no clue! It’s very busy and the food was lacking so very disappointed! Next time I won’t be dining here!
Didn’t honor the reservation at the time specified
Food was excellent! The manager Tom was very involved and accomodating. Be prepared to wait and be very close with other tables. Eat here when you are not in a rush and if you don’t mind a crowd. Restaurant is very small with barely any space to wait for your table. But again the food was delicious!!
Fun ambiance, great food, reasonably priced. Would recommend!
It was my second time dining here. The first occasion was lunch before a show. The experience was great so decided to come back. Had a 7:00 reservation and didn’t sit until almost 8. Tom, the manager, served us drinks on the house while we waited. There was also music which made the atmosphere very lively. We were with my 4 year old granddaughter so even though the atmosphere was great, the wait was quite long given I had a reservation. The food was good although my Marsala was veiny. It was taken off the bill. The atmosphere is so much fun and Tom goes out of his way to welcome and check on the guests. I would still return even though the experience had a few bumps.
wow! what a find. will return . great food ,warm atmosphere, great staff... Genuine
Whomever buys the meats, pastas, fish etc know what they are buying. Wait staff excellent, Managers etc all accommodating, SIMPLY a great Italian restaurant, thought I was in the South of Italy! A great find on 49th!
Made reservations for 6:30 and there were several groups waiting before me. They were over an hour behind schedule.
We ended up going somewhere else.
25th anniversary everyone was awesome
We arrived for our 6 pm reservation at 6 and were told they were running a few minutes late - 40 minutes and 3 conversations with the hostess and we were finally seated. Neither the hostess nor the manager were apologetic or helpful. Food was good but not worth the wait or price. Will not return
Had a wonderful family dinner, 8 of us after the Lion King. We had 2 little 7 year old boys with us, and from the moment we walked in the service was spectacular. Our table of 8 was ready on time, we got there early but had a drink and listened to the great piano player! Food was fantastic, service was even better!! Loved the evening and highly recommend Da Marino!
Quaint restaurant with good food. Generous portions. Nice ambiance but a little tight.
This joint embodies everything magical that an old school Italian restaurant in NYC should. Live piano singer, recessed seating, cozy, incredibly delicious and fresh food. Perfect for a date or otherwise memorable evening. Osso buco was crazy tender and perfectly delicious. The only negative would be the recommended menu doesn’t list prices, and I was shocked to find out an appetizer with two small mozzarella balls was $28. Other than that, it was a magical night.
Tasty food, impeccable service, fun and lively atmosphere. Enter as strangers, leave as friends. We returned the next night and the experience and food were again wonderful Claudio was our server - a class act! All of the staff work seamlessly and cheerfully together in this cozy, bustling place. Portions are generous. Tiramisu was best ever! Buratta was so fresh and delicious. Lamb chops were second to none. Lobster ravioli was a real treat. My husband will never like my chicken Marsala again - now that he has tried it here! Thanks to everyone who made our visit memorable. The Morissette’s. ;).
The wait time, even with a reservation was over an hour. Food took over an hour to be served after ordered.
Extremely poor service and food was okay, nothing spectacular. Manager was super nice though and gave an extra bottle of wine because dinner took 1.5 hrs to come to the table after ordering.
Romantic atmosphere, delicious food, incredible staff, great music! One of nyc's best small restaurants!
Food was fine. Nothing spectacular. Had reservation for 7:45, got seated at 8:35 - no explanation provided. Seats were in a narrow opening with limited traffic for food/wait staff and very noisy. Then had to rush a bit through dinner in order to make a show, so had limited menu due to kitchen prep time.
Da Marino is what you picture the backstreet Italian restaurant should be. Interaction with management and great ambiance. Unfortunately busy enough you could barely get through the crowd to leave.
Great food, great atmosphere, very upbeat and welcoming. Overall amazing experience, will 100% return
The food was delicious and the service was fantastic. We had a wonderful dinner and look forward to going back soon.
Still my favorite restaurant in NYC. Food is great and I love the ambiance.
AMAZING FOOD AND FEEL - felt like you were at a cafe in the heart of Italy
Place was congested when we first arrived and we had show tickets at 8, but the staff worked quickly such that we had a great dinner and plenty of time to spare.
Dirty and food “meh”. Good for tourists and that’s it.
We had a great overall experience! This was our second time coming and we were looking forward to being back. The vodka sauce is the best ever!! My branzino special was delicious and my son and I had fun watching our hostess filet and debone it for me table-side. The penne a la vodka was amazing - the chicken we had added to it was a bit tough but my son just ate around it. All in all, a great experience and we look forward to going back again
The perfect restaurant for our anniversary and the last night for us in NYC
Uno dei migliori ristoranti trovati nella nostra settimana a New York!!!!
