Im not from iowa, so for me to find a great authentic italian restaurant is hard, but Marino's is just what ive been looking for! With great homemade cooking, and great service, we could'nt of asked for anything better. The sausage sandwhich was fantastic! The meatballs are hand made rolled to perfection. My salad was nice and plump, if you get one dont forget to order the house dressing made by the owner herself it was yummy. Our favorite thing about the food had to be the marinarra sauce, ive never tasted anything so tasty on my pasta before, we also liked the baked cavetelli with sausage and the rolatini's. Overall we enjoyed our food, and the atmosphere, the service was great, and so was the music! We will definatley be back *****\r
P.S.- Also I love pizza and i missed pizza from the east coast so bad, I would have to say Marino's pizza is definatly quite a find! Its made fresh, and tossed with fresh toppings, I haven't had anything better since we moved here!
Pros: service, great food, bigger dinning room
