Always Excellent! 11/4/2011

No matter what kind of Italian you're in the mood for you will find it at Marina's. My favorite is the angel hair with half marinara-half alfredo sauce - so yummy! Sometimes we just go for pizza. The pre-course bread is delicious and so are the salads. A great date night, casual dinner or lunch. On weekend nights there will definitely be a wait! more

Definitely not stouffer's 7/22/2010

I just wanted to write that I am a former employee at Marina's and the lasagna is not store bought. It is made in the kitchen from fresh ingredients. It's not even frozen. Pros: No frozen lasagna more

we love this place 12/22/2009

if u get past the wait its worth the rest! food is kinda expensive but we still love it... We've been going for years. Just wish they would get bigger location with like 2 levels maybe a outside garden with fountain... locals love this place.... Pros: hot bread loaf and desserts Cons: restrooms too close to kitchen and waiting area too small more

I love this place! 6/29/2009

My boyfriend eat here every couple months. We have ordered the regula rpizza and the stuffed pizza. He prefers the regular pizza, which has a nice, crispy crust. The stuffed pizza is awesome! It is full of cheese and any ingredients you choose. The crust has a sweet taste and is dusted with parmesan. Pros: Good food, great service, low prices Cons: poor atmosphere, no liquor more

Hey, at leasts it's better than Fazoli's! 4/3/2008

It's a pretty big stretch to call this place authentic Italian. Having lived with 3rd generation italian-americans, this was nearly offensive. The lazagna and ziti were microwaved, The Manicotti, tortellini, raviolli, and stuffed shells are premade in a factory somewhere and frozen. The Shrimp pasta was watery and incredibly bland. The ingredients were not very fresh. The salads are very inconcistent as far as quality goes. The Dressings come prepackaged except the bleu cheese which was pretty tasty, though the ranch was the worst I think I've ever had (watery and bitter and greenish) The bread was good. The Pizzas and calzones were pretty good although lacking in flare. the tomato sause comes straight from a can which was VERY disappointing The meat sause smelled aweful. Overall the food was bland and overpriced. The beer and wine list was decent. The atmosphere was ok.. nothing special, though the building has alot of character and the location is great. The walls were paper thin next to the kitchen and dish area which was very disruptive if you are seated in the back. The wait staff was friendly enough, a little slow at times. The Food was very overpriced for the quality. although on certain nights you can get the stuffed pastas relatively cheaply though you are better off going to Fazoli's if you want cheap italian food. If you really want a good pizza Tomato Tomato is right around the corner. If you want real fine dining Maple Street Grill Is only a few doors down. Pros: good pizza and calzones. Cons: Overpriced and Bland more

Best italian food in Murfreesboro 10/15/2007

We eat here every couple of weeks on Date Night (Thursday night) when they give a great special - two entrees, two drinks, etc... all for a very reasonable price. The food is great, the staff is very friendly, we love it. The only downside? The decor could use a little sprucing up. But that's part of the ""family restaurant"" charm. Pros: food, service, value more

Good customer service and great deserts 3/4/2007

The staff were friendly and helpful. We were suprised when we asked for the desert menu they brought out a tray with a slice of all their deserts for you to see. Very hard to say no to that. Pros: Great deserts. Cons: I would do away with the table next to the kitchen doors. It was a little to close and interferes with the atmoshphere more

All around great place 6/22/2006

I eat here a few times a year, we try to keep it special. Food and service is always outstanding. Just a great local resturant with great food. Much better than the chains! more

Good Food and Great Service !!!! 5/13/2006

My friend and I eat at Marina's nearly every week. We love the food and the service is wonderful. Pros: friendly service Cons: poor parking, Closed on S & M more

Not a Chain - Not Pretentious - Just Great 5/23/2005

My wife and I visit Marinas almost every week- we have a love affair with this place! Mini pizzas, calzones, baked salmon, and the spinach appetizer are among our favorites. The staff is absolutely wonderful. The atmosphere is that of a little local joint with no pretensions- just a desire to provide good food and keep you happy. Kitchen and dining room are connected, so you can hear all the action! It gets a little busy on weekends, but leave your cell # with the hostess and walk 2 doors down for a cocktail at Wall Street. Pros: friendly service, fairly priced, relaxed atmospere Cons: Closed Sun. & Mon. more

Would Highly Recommend 6/22/2004

I've eaten here several times, and every visit has been a pleasant one. Italian is my favorite food, so I am a scrutinizer. I've had the manicotti, baked ziti, and eggplant parm. They've all been wonderful! Nothing you could buy in a store :) The tiramisu is awesome as well! Don't remember the service previously - if it were negative I'd remember - but this last time was great. Definitely recommend. Only thing I don't like is the wait time to get a table. Pros: Good service, Good Food, Inexpensive more

recommended 5/1/2004

Some of the reviews of this place had me a little nervous about trying it but try it I did and my fears were allayed. The food is very good although not outstanding. The calzones are highly recommended though. Marina's is extremely crowded on weekends but this is a good sign in a restaurant. There were a couple of service glitches during my visit but the staff was very friendly. Overall I can definitely recommend Marina's. FYI: they are closed Sunday and Monday. Pros: good food, friendly service, decor Cons: , no reservations, closed Sun. and Mon. more

Disappointed 1/13/2004

After reading a great review in one of the local magazines I was excited about going here. Everything on the menu sounds appealing. I couldnt decide so got the combination platter. This selection was 13.95 and very overpriced for a spoonful of fettucine, one THIN slice of fried eggplant (without even any pasta with it) and 2 small stuffed shells. The eggplant was awful. A salad came with it but consisted of the yellow lettuce from the middle of the head. The bread was fresh but bland. Overall, I was disappointed with my meal. But my spouse had calzone that looked and tasted great. We may try this place again but I would not recommend the combo platter or the eggplant dishes. Also, the kitchen staff was so loud at times we couldnt even have a conversation with each other. The server was friendly but slow and not very attentive. Pros: Semi-romantic Cons: Expensive, So-so food, So-so service more

Like Stouffer's? 9/6/2002

I would suggest Marina's to someone who doesn't really care for authentic Italian. Their lasagna is Stouffer's and I think they overprice it when you look at how much it sells for at the grocery store. But really, their salads are excellent and I would suggest Marina's for a lite lunch Pros: great decor, friendly staff Cons: expensive, poor parking more

    Located on the charming, rejuvenated town square, eating at this family-style Italian place can feel like taking a step back in time. There's nothing fancy about the decor or the...
