Where we've featured it
There’s a good chance you’ve driven by Marino Restaurant a million times without noticing it - it’s been in a bungalow-style building in a residential part of Hollywood since the ’80s. Right now, they’re offering all kinds of prepped foods for you to make at home, from fresh pasta starting at $10/lb, to oxtail and bacon amatriciana sauce. And if you’re with a family (or have some space in your freezer), they’ve got affordable 12-serving trays of classic Italian-American comfort food like eggplant parm ($65) and lasagna ($90). Call for pick-up or free local Hancock Park delivery, delivery also available on most apps.
Marino Ristorante is an Italian restaurant on Melrose in Hollywood that’s as close to a neighborhood date spot that the neighborhood has. Though their interior dining room is open, we recommend taking advantage of their massive new back patio. With twinkling string lights and a giant tree providing some shade, it’s the ideal setting for a glass wine and some pasta.
