The pasta is made fresh daily. The service is outstanding. It is Kid friendly too. I truly love this place, a great neighborhood gem!

Our family visits this excellent restaurant often. Every visit is a wonderful experience. From the main menus to the nightly specials, we have never been disappointed. The food is made fresh, not frozen and then re-heated. If you are in a rush, I am sure you can find a restaurant with already prepared food. If you want the true Italian meal experience, relax with a nice glass of wine the owner will be glad to recommend and unwind from your day. The meal will not disappoint. I just had Marinella cater my father's 80th Birthday party in my home and the guests kept asking where the delicious food was from. I give his restaurant a 5 star rating, truly an enjoyable experience!

I found Marinella by mistake after the restaurant I was attempting to visit was closed for the evening! Sometimes good comes from a mistake! Very nice folks in a cute little place serving high-quality Italian food and wine for a reasonable price. That's a winning combination in anyone's book.

...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 atmosphere and thoughtfulness of the staff, especially the owner. We have a favorite in our own neighborhood - Pasta D'Arte - that is excellent, but our experience at Marinella warrants another trek from the northwest side.

We came here with friends on a snowy Sunday evening, so the restaurant was not full. The staff were super friendly and answered all of our questions. We ordered calamari for an appetizer and is was delicious, served with marinara sauce. Our group ordered the spaghetti with meatballs, ravioli and veal. All were outstanding! The veal in particular was cooked perfectly. Will definitely be back.
