A word from Marianna Ristorante - Renton

We specialize in Northern Italian cuisine. Delicious homemade pastas such as Gnocchi, Fettuccine and Ravioli…but everyone loves our Spaghetti Bolognese!

Our Veal Piccata is to die for and we run specials every day such as Pork chops, Steaks and Fresh Seafood. Allso we have a beautiful brick oven where we make thin crust pizzas and bake our own bread. The Wine List is mainly Italian but we also carry several local wines. We also have a private room than can accommodate up to 20 people for special events. In addition we invite Winemakers and we host 5 course wine dinners for those who like to know more about all the different types of wines from Italy and the rest of the world.

Our dining room is very cozy and romantic to impress that special someone. We also have a full bar where we run happy hour from 3:00pm to 6:00pm everyday, $2.000 off appetizers and well drinks as well as pasta tasters for $6.00

Diner Reviews
  • "Our food was delicious. Lasagna and rigatoni, both prepared well. Rigatoni was al dente, the extra sauce on the lasagna was terrific. It raised the bar on the lasagna! Great bread and oil and a wonderful ceasar salad."

  • "The restaurant was either understaffed or just extremely poor service. It wasn't even busy but the other patrons experienced the same misfortune of a bad Renton dining experience. Arrived at 6:30 pm and the evening went downhill from being seated, At 8:45 got up and had to find a waiter for our check. Had two small pizza's, one chicken dinner (side salad never delivered) and two dinner salads .(served on small plates). The entire evening was very strange indeed....."

  • "Always yummy food with vibrant atmosphere. Surprising to find such a place in Renton....but we keep going back!"

  • "Given the many positive reviews, we reasonably high expectations for dinner here but were very disappointed. The service was nearly non-existent, despite the restaurant being nearly empty. Our waiter spent his time sitting and talking at another table. As a result, we had a 15 minute before our order was taken, long waits with empty water glasses, and we had to ask for our check twice. The food was ok but nothing special."

  • "Wow. What a great meal and a great experience - as always. Once again the entire staff at Marianna's made this yet another memorable experience. The food was exquisite, the wine fantastic, and staff and service second to none. We are planning our retirement and move to AZ within the next 10 months - and I can say that Marianna's is going to be the one and only place and the one and only experience in the ENTIRE Puget Sound area we are going to miss. Marianna's would be the ONLY reason we'd ever come back up here."

  • "food was tasty and plentiful, however with the amount of wait staff working the night we went, service was the speediest or attentive. first time here, will go back for a future dining experience."

  • "We had read through reviews that the food was good but service was not up to par so that is what we had expected. We were pleasantly surprised with incredible service! There were 6 of us and they did not miss a beat! Food was incredible and we had terrific service! Can't say enough about this place, we think it will soon be a new favorite!"

  • "We went down on Mothers day for dinner and had the special of that day: One Fillet Mignon (me) my wife's was poached King Salmon. Both entries were exceptional. Sontiago the owner was our waiter. Very professional. We went to Marianna's as we have eaten there before and found the food very good."

  • "The Italian waiter that served us sang and entertained people, but he forgot our order right after taking it and had to return to ask what one of us ordered. He was the only waiter working the dining area, and was not very attentive. The pizza, although flavorful was soggy in the center."

  • "Great Italian fare, very nicely prepared. One of us is Sicilian/Italian and the meatballs appetizer and sauce reminded him of his Mom's. Service was very nice. Only complaint is that the restaurant has a little identity crisis. The bar is a little loud, with happy hour, while the restaurant has a very nice low-key ambiance. There is no separation however, so the soft music and dim lighting of the restaurant is displaced by the loud music and revelers in the bar, until they left. The drinks were great too."

  • "The food was amazing. Really good flavors, portion sizes, and presentation. Only thing that marred our experience was poor service. The waiter was short with us and not very interested in serving us."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "This was my 2nd time here and I have to say both the food and service were sub par; much different from the great 1st time experience. The food didn't seem carefully plated, more like thrown together in a hurry; and didn't seem seasoned. I was surprised at the indifferent service received too. Seemed like the waiter just didn't want to be working. He barely kept our water refilled and did not offer pricing on the specials for that night. He also did not offer fresh ground pepper for our salads, and seemed more interested in helping other tables he had."

  • "OVerall experience was very good. Service good and friendly. My husband has pizza which was a bit soggy not a traditional Italian pizza. My seafood pasta was ok. Prawns tasted like cholrine and the pasta a bit dry and tastless. Bread and wine were wonderful. Would go back and order something else though."

  • "Always a pleasure dining here, from tasty entrees, daily specials, specialty cocktails, and wine selection, you cannot go wrong. A neighborhood favorite, and one of the best restaurants you will find outside of downtown Seattle. You won't be disappointed!"

  • "As always good food...however their dinner specials have not been to my preference."
    Dined on 11/14/2013
  • "I had the Linguini Venezia special. It was an awesome blend of flavors with the scallops and prawns sauteed to perfection. They should make it a permanent menu item."
    Dined on 11/10/2013
  • "Sometimes is place is good and sometimes not. This was a not. Pasta undercooked for both our dinners. One waiter it seemed for the entire restaurant so service was very, very slow. Ordered bottled water. Never came so we told our bus person and he said we did not get it because they were out. Hello?! Could we have been told this? No one came back to us to ask how the food was so we just ate it. We were starving. Last time we were there it was just the opposite but have to be truthful about this night."
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "The dishes here were higher quality than Armando's. We started with a lovely Burrata appetizer and then had a pasta and a chicken dish. Food was on par with the prices. Service was not so wonderful on the night we were there. Just a lot of waiting - first for a server to stop by, then to take our order. Once our order was placed our dishes arrived too quickly (we saw the server come by with our entrees and return to the kitchen, i.e. heat lamps when she noticed we were still eating our appetizer). We experienced the same thing at the end of our meal. It took forever to get the bill taken care of and to get a little more water after our meal. We'll go back, but don't expect top notch service."

  • "I eat with family or entertain business clients at least once per week and am so glad that Renton has a restaurant at this level of quality."
    Dined on 10/15/2013
  • "I am there at least once per week with family or clients and they all rave about the place. The owner is always present and makes it a point to stop by every table and it makes you feel like you are having dinner at a friends house. Want your meal prepared a special way, no problem. Great place."
    Dined on 8/10/2013
  • "The puttenesca was extremely fishy and had far too many sardines. The ravioli was undercooked and so-so. The veal picatta was very good however according to my son. The waiter was rude and kept telling bad jokes at our expense. Their old restaurant Vino was so much better than this."

  • "we were not aware it would be a fixed price menu. Neietrh of us enjoyed the limited selection."
    Dined on 2/14/2013
  • "I made a reservation but when I got there, I noticed some friends in the bar having a drink. We ended up sitting in the bar and were greeted right away. right now there are only a few beers and wines, but more are coming it sounds like, but not a problem. When we asked about a few of the items on the menu, the descriptions were detailed and not overstated like they were reading from a piece of paper, it really helped in making a decision. I had the Pollo Gorgonzola, which was great. The cream sauce was not too heavy and was a great balance with the noodles and chicken."

  • "Can't wait for their new restaurant Marianna opening in February, near Melrose Grill. Will have an expanded menu."

  • "This was our first visit to the Vino's. When we arrived we learned that Vino's was associated with Firenze Ristorante in the Crossroads area of Bellevue, which has been a family favorite of ours for many years. While the food was good, it wasn't close to the flavor and quality we've enjoyed at Fireze. The gorgonzola sauce was more like an Alfredo with a hint of gorgonzola cheese. The salmon was overcooked and the gnocci didn't taste homemade. The appetizers were delicious - the bruschetta and prawns in garlic wine sauce were delicious. The service was attentive and professional. I would say, the desserts were the best part of the meal by far. Tiramisu and coconut gelato were amazing. I would definitely go back to Vino's for dessert!"

  • "Seattle is spoiled for choice when it comes to Italian restaurants. If this place was in another city, it might be the best place in town. Here it is good, the service was great, prices were reasonable, etc. It is an old house converted into a restaurant, which is kind of neat, but a tight fit with a baby in a high chair. Everyone else seemed to be just fine."

  • "Fantastic service and food! Generally we go there because we adore the "specials" and they are so willing to accomadate to taste. Recenty we ordered the Lobster Ravolli - and I really hope they have it again :)"
