Marino’s, which has been operating at 5423 Mahoning Avenue since 1979, recently changed
their name from Marino’s Restaurant to Marino’s Italian Café.
“We want to be known as a place where people can stop off to relax with an expresso
or a glass of wine. It doesn’t have to be a pasta dinner,” John Marino said.
They also specialize in on-premise and off-premise catering, offering sit-down formal
or buffet dinners. Take-out is available seven days a week. Two miles west on Mahoning
Ave., the owners have opened a second dining room, Mojo's Pub & Grille, which is
also available for private parties, banquets, and meetings.
