Marino likes to fish

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL. -

MARINO Roberto, with his in­fec­tious smile and dis­tinc­tive mous­tache, is one of the Whit­sun­day’s most love­able per­son­al­i­ties.

Owner and op­er­a­tor of Marino’s Deli, Marino has been an Air­lie Beach res­i­dent and busi­ness owner for 27 years. Marino and his wife Yvonne have re­ally made a mark on the town, with their deli now serv­ing the sec­ond gen­er­a­tion of their orig­i­nal cus­tomers.

When he’s not busy in the kitchen, Marino likes to cast a line or pot­ter around the gar­den.

“Be­cause the trees, they don’t talk to you, and the fish nei­ther,” he said with a laugh.

What do you do to chill out?

I like go­ing out fish­ing with friends and do­ing some gar­den­ing.

Where’s the best place to eat in the Whit­sun­days?

Marino’s Deli, of course!

Last movie you saw in the cine­mas?

The Wa­ter Diviner.

What do you do for work?

I own Marino’s Deli in the Whit­sun­day Shop­ping Cen­tre.

What is your plan for the next 12 months?

To keep serv­ing all my cus­tomers, as usual.

Any last words?

Thank you to ev­ery­one who sup­ports us here at Marino’s.
