Marino Ristorante is deeply rooted in the idea of doing all things the right way. Today the family owned restaurant, is giving its welcoming by Mario, Jr. and mom, Maria. The room is simple. A wall of glass, softened by out of door planters full of ficus, faces the famous Melrose Avenue. The soft colored walls starched white linen cloths, the silver sugar caddy and votive holders and subdued oil paintings all come together to create its appeal. And then there is the food. Ciro, Mario and Sal were the first of the handful of chefs who are out daily in the early morning markets personally selecting the ingredients for the menu and seeking out the most interesting and pristine items for the specials. Placing yourselves in Mario's hands for the tasting menu proves to be a wise decision. Also known for his knowledge of wines Mario will recommend the menu and wines to best meet your dining expectations. The Marino wine list has been repeatedly an award winner by Wine Spectator.

Rated 3 out of 5 by The food was excellent. We had two types of wine, the grilled calamari appetizer, risotto dinner, and a chicken dish. They also served delicious bread as an appetizer. The experience would have been great, except the manager didn't seem genuine and the service took a turn for the worse midway through our meal. A group of 4 people across from us were in a hurry and wanted to be out at a specific time. The manager and our waiter (also their waiter) then spent the majority of their time catering to this other table. They truly seemed to put all of their energy into getting these people everything they needed as quickly as possible, that it felt like they put us and our needs on a back burner. We ended up waiting at least 20 minutes from finishing our meal and saying no thank you to dessert before getting our bill. I am in the restaurant business and I am pertty understanding in most scenarios, but this was pretty silly and unneccessary. I'm rating the service as fair because it was good at the start of the meal, but it became poor. Nov 20, 2015
