I recently attended a Slow Food event with Italian butchers here and had a wonderful time. They set up a grill outside and the smoky scent tantalized people for blocks around. While I haven't had a formal dinner, the bites I've had of

The wine list was good, and the server knew his wines, but that was the highlight of dinner. The short ribs were fatty and the portion was small. The pizza left a lot to be desired and same with the chard.

All I can say is YUM! I went here for dinner last night and everything we ordered was delicious. We started out with the butter lettuce salad, the crawfish pasta, the vesta pizza and ended with the bread pudding. I would recommend all

The waiter even folded my napkin when I went to the restroom. I had never eaten here when it was Emporio Rulli but the new renovations and menu have made it a very appealing Marina restaurant. I will definitely be going back.

I ate here for lunch last Saturday, the July 4th holiday. I was with my aunt and brother. I am guessing that the brunch menu we saw was a weekend/holiday menu rather than their regular lunch menu. We were seated right away, and the service was fairly prompt. I had the strawberry french toast. It was superb! They use brioche bread, cooked correctly and smothered with small strawberry bites and blueberries. It was topped with a large dollop of real whipped cream. They also provide maple syrup, but I didn't need any of it as there were plenty of berries and whipped cream to go with all four pieces of toast. My aunt and brother both had pannini sandwiches with the side salad, and they thought those were great. In particular, they thought the bread was really fresh and tasty. If this place had problems when it opened, it sure didn't seem like they were still having any last Saturday.

I ate here just a few nights ago. the staff was very nice and even let me rearrange the furniture. The portions were so small, ive seen bigger portions on a kids menu. the food was good, just not nearly enough. 2 people and it was 85 dollars, which included a glass of wine and 3 beers. 5 dollar beers each, 8 dollar wine per glass. we had to eat later on that night.

You cannot go wrong with their regional baked goods. The panini are average, but don't underestimate the food. The food is authentic and cooked as in mama's Italian kitchen. The food here is more authentic than its neighbor A16 right accross the street and there are no lines for dinner! It doesn't have the chi-chi atmosphere of A16, but it's got a more inventive Italian menu and chef. IMO, this is a real sleeper....wake-up Marina people!

Cons: expensive pastries, more of a cafe feel

I had been at Emporio Rulli Caffe when they first open and it was not very well together, my wife and I wanted to give them another chance and I'm glad we did, they have improved a great deal, at our arrival we both order a glass of wine and two minutes later the server arrived with a very nice mini tasting of buschettas on the house he mentioned, excellent detail. then we order the pasta with rabbit was excellent the pasta with squash good flavor very well done. very good job I hope they keep it up!

Editorial from

Keeping true to its name, Ristobar is at once an Italian restaurant and casual wine bar. Speaking to the latter, a small lounge-ish area outfitted with black leather couches is perfect for enjoying a small bite or glass of wine. Salumi…
