This business is closed. I am submitting is review since the system forces answers but thought you'd like to know that they have been closed for sometime and you may want to remove it from your ratings.

I've reviewed this restaurant several times and I honestly believe it is one of the finest Sanford has to offer. That's why it was bittersweet to dine here last Sunday night.....we will never be returning because Marco Dino's is closing its doors forever this week....More

I've reviewed this restaurant...er...Ristorante twice already but another mention is in order. My wife gave me my choice of places to celebrate my 60th birthday at last month, but I, without a moment's hesitation, proclaimed that Marco Dino's it would be. Everyone in our party...More

Pricey Italian food no better than at Carrabba's. The food was extremely over salty. To be fair the Caesar salad was pretty good, but than nothing comes close to the made at the table Caesar the NY Penta used to make. The restaurant served spaghetti,...More

Loved the historical feeling of the place. Bartenders were friendly and efficient. Food was good, should have ordered something different though, more Italian. Portions were large and plenty to share. Good experience and will go back.

Upon walking in, I could tell that Marco Dino's lacked some polish. The atmosphere was off for the type of restaurant. This place looked more like a trendy diner rather than a higher end Italian place. Artwork was out of place for the genre and...More

Hubby and I have frequented this location over the years and decided it was time to go back. Good decision. It was after their very favorable review in a local magazine, so they were depleted of some items - but still had lots of choices....More
