Delicious. Fresh food and quality. Great service. Will go back again soon. Wonderful meal.
Absolutely delicious! As always food,service,atmosphere just Excellent! Would highly recommend to everyone!!
2 of us went for lunch. I ordered skirt steak and she had a fish special. Each was about $19. Portions were very small. I do realize it was lunch, but we both left there hungry. More veg's would have been appropriate for the cost if meat/fish must be portioned. There really wasn't enough food.
On a positive note, the waitress was very attentive.
One of the best meals I ever had. The Maiale con Peperoni is a winner. The whole staff was wonderful and attentive.
All 4 of us had the pork chop, at Nino’s suggestion...it was superb! Our friends truly enjoyed LaMarea and I’m sure they will become regular customers as well!
Our server, Keith, was absolutely amazing! He made us feel comfortable and relaxed, and made excellent suggestions. The atmosphere was warm and inviting, and we appreciated the owner stopping by to make sure we were having a great experience. We will be going back soon!
Great meal great specials! Staff really enhances the experience. Attentive and knowledgeable on menu. We have been many times and enjoy each meal.
Great atmosphere and service! Food was delicious!
This restaurant never disappoints. The food is phenomenal. Authentic, inventive Italian cuisine. The service is exceptional, we love this restaurant. Every time we are in CT we set aside a nite to dine at LaMarea. And each time, we marvel at the consistent outcome. Delicious, gracious, and fun. Highly recommend.
It was the perfect dining experience! The restaurant is lovely and the food exceptional. It feels fine to be casually dressed as the atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable. Our wait staff was very attentive, but not overly so, and we had a lot of nice exchanges. We loved the pasta with clams and the lasagna and we enjoyed every last bite of the cheesecake, a dessert worth eating!
Very quiet at lunchtime. Had two antipasti, Calamari and eggplant Parmesan were exceptional. Service is always exceptional. You can’t go wrong with any of their desserts.
La Marea is consistanlty fabulous. Aside from absolutely delicious food, the staff is so engaging and the service is wonderful. GO!
Food was pricey but phenomenal!
Always great _
Great food, great service, very accommodating.
Great meal with great service. Very crowded but did not feel rushed at all. Food was very good.
What can I say that I haven’t said before about this place? You simply must go and experience it yourself. Truly special on all fronts.
La Marea is by far our favorite restaurant! Outstanding food, excellent service and a wonderful atmosphere. Love love love ❤️
We had a great time having dinner at the bar. Demetri (owner's son) was great. He anticipated all of our needs. The restaurant itself is elegant and well designed. See you when we return to Saybrook in the summer! Thanks Nino!
Hostess ensured our request for a booth
Our favorite Italian restaurant on the Connecticut Shoreline!
As always, a wonderful meal in a beautiful surrounding. It continues to be the shining start on the shoreline for fabulous dinning.
Food was delicious. Very attentive wait staff. Great night out celebrating our friend’s birthday.
Our second time here, and it's fine. Didn't have an amazing meal either time, with pastas quite plainly presented and garnished for the price. OK wine list, nothing to write home about. Very good service, though, which counts for a lot around here. Noise level is quite loud in the dining room at peak times, so perhaps aim for a high-top in the bar area for a quieter meal.
Dinner at La Marea is always excellent. You feel like a welcome member of the family, and the food is delicious.
The service was poor. Wait staff dropped our plates and did not ask if we needed anything else. They delivered our food and we did not have silverware. There was a lack of attention to service. The food was very good which compensated for the poor service.
Food and service is always top notch! I had the pasta special and it was melt in your mouth delicious!
Sublime pizza. Gnocchi was light as a pillow and the service was great but a bit hovering. A must destination on the shoreline.
First time there and the service and food were excellent. Food came a little quick after we ordered so suggest holding off on putting your order in if you’re not in a hurry.
As always, totally enjoyable. Truly authentic, well crafted Italian cuisine.
We had a very enjoyable dinner. Would recommend.
We have now eaten at La Marea many times since it opened. It is like being in a European restaurant. The owner is so great...he came to our table with meal suggestions and later to see how we liked our meal. The manager, Hugo, is The staff is also fantastic! We love the food at La Marea. They take such care with the quality of the food and the presentation.
The restaurant is perfect for a romantic date or to dine with friends. The food on the regular menu is absolutely delicious and the specials are outstanding. If you have a food allergy, it will be accommodated. It can get very busy so best to make a reservation!
Great place, great hosts, great service, great food.
I would recommend it as a must!
