Marino Ristorante is deeply rooted in Hollywood since the late 1950’s when Ciro (Mario to friends) Marino landed in Hollywood and has ever since had generations of who’s who in the movie, record, art, political and business LA community at his tables. Today it is still family owned and given its warm welcome flavor by the second generation of Marinos, Mario in the dining room and brother Sal in the kitchen

The decor is classic old school, subdued oil paintings and memorabilia from a 60 year career all come together to create its appeal. Described by many quintessential NY Italian in Los Angeles’ for its original flair, today the chefs who are out daily in the early morning markets personally selecting the ingredients for the menu, seeking out the most interesting and pristine items for the specials, always keeping it seasonal and deeply rooted into tradition.
