Marino Ristorante Restaurant Review

: When Marino Ristorante opened in 1983, it became the unofficial Paramount Studios commissary and a lunch spot for producers, entertainment lawyers and agents. Mario Marino now operates the restaurant, which was launched by his late father, Ciro "Mario" Marino, a legendary chef and restaurateur. The younger Mario also co-owns the La Bottega Marino trattoria with brother Sal Marino, who is the chef-owner of West L.A.’s Il Grano. Expect well-prepared versions of veal Parmigiana, whole baked branzino, and a dish called filetto alla Sinatra (chunks of filet mignon sautéed with green peppers, mushrooms and red wine). Among antipasti, you’ll find goat osso buco, a grilled Santa Barbara prawn salad and meatballs from a family recipe. Finish with tiramisu and a glass of grappa. Although it’s not exclusively Italian, nearly every region of Italy is represented on the wine list at this beloved eatery, which is refreshingly old-school.
