  • So, let me start off by saying this was probably the WORST service ive ever experienced as a new customer. I am completely appalled at how they treated me. The delivery time was quick, but when it arrived i found that one of the two panzerotti´s was extremely small! I was the one who paid for the majority of the order as my little brother was having the other one. His was fine, it was how they should be. but upon cutting it open i discovered mine had only about a handful of topping and was about 65% crust.

    Having not eaten for many hours i was infuriated because i know that they are normally much bigger, and im not normally one to complain. But this was just completely un-acceptable. So i ended up calling Marinos and was greeted with a very rude employee that pretty much told me that i was a liar and my complaint is not valid. She then told me to speak to the manager tommorow.

    When i called the next day i was thankfully greeted with someone who was more understanding but the manager was still not in so i ended up being transfered to yet another rude employee telling me that my complaint is not valid!! Is this how you really want to treat new customers? In the end i was offered no compensation, very sad. I wish i had kept arguing but i felt this was a better method to vent. Its very unfortunate that i was treated like this when they`re pizza is normally very good.

  • Been going to Marino's on and off for the past 5 years, and love it! The food is awesome, usually get a couple panzarotties for $15,or the greek stlyed wings, (greek salad is good too). Mostly everyone there are regulars, and know eachother which is nice. Been for kareoke a few times on the weekends, a blind man runs it who is an amazing singer and can basically sing anything! Definately a one-of-a-kind bar!
    No complaints!:)

  • Order: 2 for 1 Panzarotti's, greek-styled wings, greek salad, Nachos

  • Group of 10 decided to order panzarottis from Marino's since our regular spot was closed. BIG mistake. When they showed up, they were DRIPPING with grease. We ordered them baked. And they had packed them 4 and 2 to a box. Without even bothering to label which ones were in each box. When we called to complain, we were told "It isn't written down that they were baked" Considering we told them that's how we wanted them, not too sure why it wasn't written down. Also heard "I wasn't told to label them" Umm, so how are we supposed to know which one is which? "Just open the top and figure it out." We were told that we were more than welcome to drive them back (we were working) and get our $$ back, but that he would not be making us new ones. "I'm really busy, I've got a party here, and karaoke going on" So clearly, if you want decent service you actually have to go IN to get it, because they don't really give a rip about their delivery. But it makes sense that they showed up fried. It takes longer to bake them, and when you're "busy", you wouldn't want to waste any time. It's easier to say "I don't have it written down" so that you can send them out quicker, and get back to the 'real' customers. Don't waste your time, or money.

  • Marino's is a friendly comfortable restaurant that specializes in Italian and Greek food, but serves a wide variety of diner and dinner selections as well. I love the baked pasta dishes, and I've yet to meet anyone who doesn't rave on about their panzerotti's. I've been eating at this establishment for about 7 years now, and always enjoy the food regardless what I order. The service is attentive and friendly. (If you go their a couple of times, they'll likely get to know you on a first name basis!). They have a pool table and dart boards as well as a big screen tv. The husband and wife who are the owners are a hospitable couple from diverse backgrounds; she brings the charm of a British pub with her distinctive English accent; and he will make you think you're visiting Greece with his genuine friendliness to all who visit.

    This is a neighborhood establishment. Nothing too fancy, but definitely friendly, and most certainly down-to-earth. Many come here to re-acquaint with friends, and everyone is openly welcomed. Karaoke is offered on Thursdays and Saturdays starting around 10:00pm. And occasionally they even have live bands. It's a great spot for those who want to relax, have fun, have some great home-made food and are on a limited budget. Most dishes are between $6 and $12. I usually have a baked pasta dish which comes with a small salad and dinner roll, and I also have garlic bread with cheese. I usually have a couple of frosty pints of my favourite ale, and the total tab is about $20.

    I've worked in restaurants in the past, and can't eat the food after working their. But I've spoken to the staff who currently work at Marinos as well as those who have moved on, and they ALL return to THEIR favourite diner to enjoy the great food and friends.

    And where else can you get such great food cooked by Elvis himself (just one of their incredible cooks!).

  • Order: Baked Lasagna, Garlic Bread With Cheese,Rickard's Red Draught

  • Been doing takeout Panzerotti & Pizza from Marino's for several years, and consistently getting good substantial portions for the price. Cook takes pride in giving you value for your money, never found the food wrong or undersized portions. A small, sports bar atmosphere, usually with a few drinkers hanging out to chat or play pool, so I usually do takeout (small kids eat better at home). Not a bad place to eat, but excellent portions and good taste bring me back about once a month to takeout.

  • Order: Panzerotti, for takeout, comes complete with bolognese style sauce.

  • I have actually been to this restaurant about 100 times. The food is awesome. They make the best panserottis ever (2 for $13) and they are huge. My only complaint about this restaurant is the atmosphere. The restaurant is usually full of drunks (no matter the time of day) and the service is brutal. There is usually only one waitress and the food takes forever.

  • Order: Chicken Finger Dinner - comes with small salad, fries and gravy, 4 chicken fingers
