“Mom and Pop deli”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

This is an honest little mom & pop cafe. It is not fancy but the food is good and really reasonable. There are only 5-6 tables inside. Staff is super friendly and the place has a good feel.

I stopped for a late lunch one weekday and found a few locals inside. I asked the staff what was the best seller and they said the "Submarino" sandwich which was your typical Italian cold cut sandwich but with a bottle layer of thin sliced meatballs. So it was a delightful combination of cold and hot. Sounds little weird but it was off the charts great. Came with chips and a pickle, that plus a bottle of water was $6.50 -- cheap! Attached is a picture of said sandwich - well, half of it.

“Quality Italian food for take-out”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014

I am surprised they are not busier as the food is good and served in generous portions. I think its the dull atmoshere While there are tables for dine-in, I would not recommend it. So when thinking of buying dinner, I think people don't think of Marino's. A great catering option to consider!

Friendly, accommodating service and tasty food. Great prices. Cute little eating area with lace curtains and diner-style tables and chairs. I'm happy to have discovered this little gem!
