...was for a 25th birthday celebration. The restaurant closed for the event and the meal was served family-style, so it likely wasn't a typical visit. The bruschetta and the calamari appetizers were first rate, as was everything else. We were especially impressed with the welcoming...More

Wonderful, delicious food. Ample servings. Great service. Reminiscence of a cute place in Italy. Because my friends appreciate my desire to try everything on the menu, I tried everyone's food. It was all fantastic.

Over the years we have enjoyed Marinella's food and friendly service. We've never experienced the rude behavior mentioned by one reviewer.
