The Tuscan chicken pasta was very ordinary,a flattened chicken on top of some spaghetti and the lamb chop special for the night was very plain with dark gravy sauce on the side,disappointing!The best dish were the garlic bread balls...

I ate here three times during my visit, Love the warm bread with olive oil and fresh garlic.They were quick to refill the basket. Each time chose something different.The pasta and seafood was fantastic.

FREE GARLIC KNOTS!!!!! SO GOOD!!I These were the highlight of the meal. But the food is pretty good too. I've had better Italian, but you'll still be happy and the portions are huge! Most of the pastas are reasonably priced between $13-20. Wait: I had a reservation on Halloween night, but didn't seem like I needed one. Caesar Salad for... More

The garlic doughball things came free with my take out, they were delicious but they are completely drenched in oil and I couldn't stomach more than three. The actual meal I ordered, the capellini roma, just didn't have much flavour unfortunately, it was kind of bland. Would still give it another go if I ever go back to Marina Del... More

We went to C & O Cucina after a long day of traveling and enjoyed it very much. The menu is very varied and the vegetarian in our party found lots of options. We got a big plate of pasta which was very delicious. They give free bread which was a great touch. We didn't like the ice tea we... More

As we waited for our table, we saw a big tray of wonderfulness walk by. We both looked at each other and said WOW! We got a table fairly quickly, and ordered wine. Then those magical garlic knots came to the table. I wanted to keep eating them, but I also wanted to enjoy my shrimp ravioli. My companion had... More

We had our wedding rehersal lunch at C & O. We were seated in the outdoor dining area, which was perfect. We were fortunate no one else was seated in the area so our party was private. Lunch was served family style and the food was good, especially the endless garlic knots (so good!!). The staff was very attentive. The... More

The food here is great. Can't beat the location either. The garlic knots are really the real story here. Those things are amazing. This is a must eat location.
