This was one of the few Italian restaurants that was somewhat close to Food in Italy. What a loss to NYC. High Rent is pushing out many of the older restaurants.

Good fresh food at reasonable prices with attentive service and comfortable, relaxing atmosphere. Always a pleasure.

I took my aunt and family out to dinner here on July 3. There was really no one in the restaurant, which should have been my first clue, but i had eaten here befoe, and the food was good . My son ordered a veal dish and my wife ordered a chicken dish . Both plates were so heavily laden with salt ,that they were inedible . Fortunately, i ordered a fish entry that I could switch with my son, otherwise, he would have gone hungry . My wife couldn't even finish hear. My only thought wa s that the food was so heavily salted because the meat was old . My son's veal dish was so chewy, i could have used it for the soles of my shoes. When we told the owner, he merely said we should have sent it back. Icouldn't do that since my son muddled through half of it before saying something. I am just glad he didn't get sick . I won't be going back again.

A group of five of us went to Marinella after the Sunday Matinee - we were celebrating my aunt's 80th birthday. What a great choice! The atmosphere was relaxed and cozy, the wait staff was terrific, and the food was delicious! The lasagna, made with home-made pasta, was excellent. A couple of us had the veal valdostona and the veal could be cut with a fork - very thin, very tender, and very delicious! Prices are very reasonable and I would definitely recommend this restaurant!

I have eaten here for lunch (and enjoyed it) so I thought it would be a good place to take my husband while we were in the area for dinner last night. The service was great and the atmosphere is nice and quiet. Plus, the prices aren't ridiculous. The food, unfortunately, was just average. The stuffed artichoke app was overcooked and boring, the salmon with mustard sauce tasted "fine," but it was uninspired with limp vegetables alongside, and the black linguine with calamari (usually a favorite) was one of the blandest pasta dishes I've ever eaten. Maybe the average food was just because it was later in the evening on a weeknight, but really that should never be an excuse. There are far better Italian restaurants in the same price range. Skip this one.

4 of us went here last night and from all the reviews thought it would be a good pick. Wrong. Artichoke app boring, salmon with mustard sauce tasty, but a little over cooked and chicken we had was also over cooked. The price was right though with apps, drinks, entrees and tip it was $25 per person...Wouldn't return with all the other great italian in NYC.

We have tried several italian restaurants in Little Italy and have found them to be tourist traps living on past glories but this restaurant in the West Village is MARVELOUS! The prices were great along with the menu choices. The list of specials were outstanding. Service was nice as was the atmosphere. We travel frequently and have tried MANY italian restaurants, this one is a keeper.
