Good pizza...Horrible horrible service. I just ate here last night. I like to start out with the postives I loved the pizza! It was great, the only negative was that they don't use fresh mushrooms, they were canned, but we did get a lot of them. And the bicardi and diet was only $3.50 and made just right. For an appetizer we had the breaded mushrooms-delicious! The only negative is that the order was very small. Now for the bad...we had the worst service ever!! I am a server myself and usually understand if service isn't the greatest, but last night the service was so bad that I didn't even leave a tip, I couldn't, I was so mad. Our server seemed frazzled from the beginning, never looking at us or welcoming us as she took our drink order. Then after I finished my first drink, she never asked if I wanted another, my boyfriend had to go to the bar himself. When she brought the pizza she said "move all that stuff out of the way" talking about my empty drink glass and empty appetizer basket. What? I would never say that to a table. And shouldn't she have taken that off of our table before bringing out the pizza? There were no red pepper flakes on the table-no biggie, so I had to flag down a little bus girl-they were the nicest ones there. Then I had to stop another server to wrap up our leftover. Then our server just threw the wrapped up pizza and bill on the table. She never asked how our food was, never said thank you or good bye, nothing. She was the poster child-or should I say poster senior that should not be in that line of work. She was by far the rudest waitress I have come across ever. I do plan on going back because I liked the old comfortable atmosphere and the pizza was great, but I sure hope next time we have a different server.
I don't like negative reviews. Most of the time the person writing the review has only dined at the restaurant once and had a bad experience. Odds are that the restaurant is normally good, but the reviewer had an isolated negative experience. It happens to the best and worst restaurants alike. However...
I've eaten at De Marini's several times hoping that with every new attempt, it would get better. It hasn't. First of all, I would be embarrassed to bring an Italian friend here. The pizza and pasta sauce was basically canned tomato paste. It was truthfully disgusting. The prices for the nasty food were terrible. And the wait staff and management are not appriciative of your business at all. The one redeeming thing is their halfbaked cookie and ice cream dessert. If you ate dinner somewhere else and wanted a good dessert, it would not be the worst thing to pop into De Marini's for it. Just know that they take 10+ minutes to make. (not a huge deal) And the worst thing about De Marinis: no free refills on soda! I recently made a decision to never bring return business to a restaurant which doesn't give free refills on sodas. I think it is a testament to the kind of business they are running... cheap.
Great place to eat. The pizza sauce and the pasta sauces are terrific. I can't make it any better. It is smooth and mellow not like you just opened up a can of tomato puree. I recommend this place highly. The service is great and friendly and the food is terrific.
