Marino's in Cambridge

crs Aug 31, 2006 05:49 PM

Just curious if anyone has been recently, and what their thoughts were? I used to live around the corner and loved the place. But I feel like in recent times I'd heard more negative comments? I'm considering it for my birthday dinner gathering with friends? (about 12 of us) If anyone has two-cents to throw in there, I'd appreciate it! Or even any other suggestions in and around that general geographic location? Thanks!

    I used to like Marino's when it openned but over the years I think it has really gone down hill. For a group dinner I would suggest Flora in Arlington which is a mile or so up Mass Ave from Marino's.

      Les Marino died last year, so you're not putting money in his personal pocket.

          Thank you. I'm new to chowhound and appreciate the help! I will certainly do more thorough searches before posting, from now on.

            You're in luck...the search engine just got a lot better since the site overhaul!
