Originally from Belgrade, Serbia, Marina moved to Los Angeles seven years ago. Deciding to apply her studies in Anthropology to the hospitality industry, Marina joined the Eataly LA Team as a Server in 2021.
Since her start with Eataly, Marina has demonstrated an exemplary ability to connect with others. No matter how busy the restaurant is, she listens attentively to guests’ requests and consistently offers the highest level of service. Marina also understands the value of teamwork. She is positive, hardworking, and quick to support her fellow Eatalians when needed.
Always curious to learn and expand her food and wine knowledge, Marina strives to improve both herself and Eataly. We are so happy to have her as part of the team!
