When Martino Linares opened the doors to his new restaurant in 1992,he was 61 years old with a young family and a dream to bring his passion for Cuba to the people of Somerville,NJ. More than 15 years later, Martino's Cuban Restaurant is a beloved fixture of the Somerville culinary scene. His two sons Ronaldo and Martino exposed to the restaurant during their youth, are now running the business and ensure that each dish that comes out of the kitchen retains the same level of quality that has been a hallmark of this community favorite.

Some of the classic dishes are the Ropa Vieja, Roast pork (Pernil), Oxtails fridiablo to name a few. Chef Ronaldo has a great selection of vegan dishes and gluten free dishes to compliment the menu.

We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our family.

As usual this place gets 5-star. I had dinner at this establishment no less than 25 times and I never have a complain about the food or the service. It gets a little crowded and noisy on weekends but I understand and I have no complains about it. I have taken friends and relatives to this restaurant and they were all happy and enjoyed their meals. I also recommended to someone who took a large group (20+) based on my recommendations and got good feedback. The price is right and it is byob. You need to make reservations specially of Saturdays. I have a problem finding good restaurants in New Jersey but this one is a keeper. Great job Martino!

We always get a great meal to be had at Martino’s! The bacalao with garlic and lemon sauce is outstanding - a must have. The tres leches cake is delicious also. And if he’s in the house, Martino is the best host ever, always taking time to chat and have a laugh with his patrons! A wonderful soul to be sure!!

It was our first time there. Food and service was great. There was an excellent selection to
choose from. I had the featured Chicken dish, which was delicious. The staff was very
friendly and the owner went out of his way to stop by.

As usual the food is great and the staff is friendly. I highly recommend the combo cubano and the boliche. Fish and shrimp plates are very good as well.

I want the Churrasco every time I go her. The chimichurri sauce is off the charts. Valentine's Day meal specials drew me to a pork tenderloin and portobello mushroom entree. This was outstanding. I've never had a bad meal here.

My family and I enjoy celebrating special occasions at Martino's. The food is great and there is a good atmosphere. Lately, there have been new menu options and they are amazing. We look forward to going again soon.

Chef Ronaldo is killing it. I had the Pescado Grande con Mariscos and it was unbelievable. The tres leche cake is to die for also. Excellent place, great atmosphere. We will be back
