Diner Reviews
  • "Very nice modern facilities.. food was very average though. I had the osso bucco but there was no taste to it. Suspect it was pre-cooked and then steamed before serving. My wife had the salmon ravioli. Again disappointing b/c it was smothered in sauce. I'm not sure what Tom Sietsma sees in this establishment. Good wine list though."

  • "Food is amazing. Not a romantic place though. Tables are small and close together. No privacy"

  • "I've been here for dinner and for lunch and enjoyed both meals. The menu has an excellent variety. Having enjoyed dinner there, I was eager to take our guests to lunch there. We all thought our food was delicious and the service was fine. I worry that because it's not on the beaten path that they're not getting as many diners as they'll need to stay in business. It's worth going out of your way to eat there."

  • "Excellent branzino in lemon caper sauce with grilled broccolini. Enjoyed the special of the day, gnocchi, as well. Portions pretty generous for fine dining. Maybe I shouldn't have eaten so much of their awesome soft bread beforehand!"

  • "The Gnocchi special was awesome! Carmine and his chefs are constantly turning out great food! Julia and Marasol are the best too!"

  • "This was our first visit to OM and it was very good. Only issue I has was the pasta dish ordered by my daughter only had 4 shrimp and they were not very large. I consider at least six acceptable. On the other hand my veal chop was excellent. There were many dishes on the menu I wanted to try so we will return."

  • "Food and service were excellent. Just enough time was allowed between courses so we did not feel rushed but didn't feel as though we had to wait for our food. Maryna was very sweet, attentive but not overly so-just right. An elderly member of our group had dined for lunch here a few days earlier and had struck up quite a conversation with her server that day. When she asked if Marasol was working during our dinner, we were so impressed when Marasol came to our table not once but three times. She was so kind and made our friend feel like a million bucks. I must say I don't think I've had a better Caesar salad and loved the presentation. I had the sea bass and it was delicious. Loved that the brocolini was grilled. Very flavorful."

  • "Family dinner out to celebrate our daughter's graduation from HS. OM accommodated our need for an early dinner and quick service. Food was great, the specials were ordered and we found them well presented, delicious and bountiful in size. Pizza was especially good, nice thin crust and charred just right from the wood fired oven. Service was good too, our waiter/bartender was knowledgeable of the menu and food preparations as well as the wine list."

  • "Our Server Was Just...Slow. It Took A Long Time To Get Our Check So That We Could Leave. Also Our Server Didn't Really Understand Certain Diet RestrictionS. This Place Is Only WorTh It IF You Live Nearby."

  • "Four of us went for dinner on Father's Day. Each ordering a different dish. Nobody was particularly thrilled with their dinner. It could be summed up by our forgetting the leftovers at the table and not wanting to go back for them as soon as we left the restaurant."

  • "This restaurant is in the middle of nowhere and charges DC prices. Food was average. No connection to our favorite restaurant Luigi's which recently closed. Prices are too high."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We love having this restaurant in near where we live. Love the food and service. Only Saturday night when we ordered the rice balls they were cold inside. Not impressive. Otherwise very happy with the place"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We have been here several times and have to say that the food and the service is always good. However, we have never been able to enjoy the evening as a quiet romantic dinner. The tables are much too close together and no conversations are private. The DJ is a nice touch, but he should play more dinner music rather than disco and techno dance music. I'm sure we will return for the food, but it will not be our first choice."

  • "Very good spot , upscale w/o the prices, located in the burbs. Alternative to Mike's American Grill and above other local Italian restaurants in the area. Risotto dishes are excellent; Veal chop and osso buco are notable, recommended. Seafood dishes provide great alternative to meat, brazini or seafood medley pasta recommended. Have made a meal of there antipasti selections, excellent! Areas to improve: Scalloppini dishes, veal - heavy sauce. Gnocchi, too soft - second try, excellent. Rice balls (arancini) with real pancetta excellent, however, received them with cold center. All are fixable and restaurant is less then a year old, working out the kinks. Have eaten there 7 times, will return!"

  • "Booked a table at Osteria Marzano for a 25th Birthday celebration dinner for my daughter. We were seated right away and enjoyed several great appetizers, including the Tuna Tartar and veal vitello tonnato. All of our dinners were equally good including two of the specials, seared tuna and the risotto. Service was prompt without being overly attentive."

  • "3 times there and 2 out of 3 is horrible service...............forget about it! No people there and long wait for food and totally missing service even though we were the only people there............need I say more"

  • "We were one of three tables in the restaurant on a Fri. lunch. I think the city emptied out as it was a nice day to take off. The $10 lunch combo (soup or pasta and salad) I ordered. The agnoletti with veal was good but a tad oversauced. My friend had the mezzeluna stuffed with zucca with a butter/sage sauce. Delicious. The salad portion was small. Given the price and quality, I thought this was a "steal" and I'll definitely go back. Ordered the sea bass stuffed ravioli last time for dinner and they were worth the long drive to get to this place."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "I had the zuppa di pesce, which was so-so ($29). I would have liked to have had some fish in the dish and a tastier broth, and the calamari was chewy. My partner had the veal parmigiana ($25), which was very disappointing. The veal was tough and had an "old" taste, like it had been in the freezer far too long. To the restaurant's credit, the dish was not put on the bill after we complained."
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "The food was amazing. My family of loved all of their entrees - including the Caprese salad and calamari we shared. The key is finding where to park and enter with this tucked away place. It is in a newly developed office park and the sign to turn in is very small and the only signage we could find beyond the parking garage was the 2 hour parking signs. We took a chance and entered into the office building and it was on the same floor to the right. Very modern. We chose to eat outside and we almost felt like we were at our own private restaurant. It was very relaxing and I will definitely be taking my family here again soon. Lots to choice from and is reasonably priced."

  • "This is our family's new favorite in northern VA. Excellent service, menu, food, service and decor. (Carlyle just got bumped.)"
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "We want to love this place because of the location. The service is usually good and the ambiance is attractively modern. However, the tables for two are NARROW and very close to the guests seated at the next tables, so that no privacy is possible. The food looks pretty on the plate but over 4 meals it has been consistently under seasoned. And finally, on our most recent visit the sauce for my veal piccata was tasteless and watery...clearly no butter was used to thicken it, which is the normal preparation. Two of us had one inexpensive bottle of wine, we split a pasta dish as an app, and had one entree each - the bill before tip was $103, which is way too much given the significant kitchen errors. This was our 4th try and we won't be back. "

  • "We were seated at an unstable table. After several requests to have it fixed, we were told to trade tables with a couple sitting in another room. Not sure why that couple got stuck with the wobbly table! After that, we waited a long time to even get the server's attention. Our waitress was efficient but not exactly friendly. I felt like I was annoying her. The food was very good, however, with generous portions. The Nutella pizza was good but not that special."

  • "There are enough selections that every person could find something to eat. The prices aren't that bad. The desserts were alright, nothing that wowed. "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "We were looking forward to this was our second visit because we really enjoyed our first dinner here. We sat in the bar because happy hour specials are only available there, which is odd because the bar dominates the restaurant and every table in the house is near the bar. There is a lively happy hour crowd. Mussels were tasty- but gritty. Ack! Fish was cooked perfectly, though. Our waiter disappeared after our first drink, so had to ask other staff to send her over for food, more drinks. One of the people we happened to flag down was the manager, so you would think she would have ensured service. But no. We were hopeful this would be our neighborhood go-to restaurant but will now continue the search."

  • "Still delicious, good service, with hot food hot and cold served cold. Very accommodating service, salads were fresh and crisp. Food was very tasty. Easy to park and enjoy!"

  • "Osteria is right across the road from where we live, but even if it wasn't I would make it a point to go again. The food was very good, our server was friendly and attentive, and the restaurant has an enjoyable atmosphere. The only downside of Osteria is that the tables are fairly close together, so you have no choice hearing the conversations around you. Still, it was quiet enough my wife and I could carry on a conversation without talking too loud."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "This was my third visit to Marzanos. The food continues to be excellent, but the service spotty. This time I was with 3 women friends. When the table next to ours was occupied by 2 couples, the server's attention went to them. They got their drinks and dinner well before us. They were checked on during the meal. We were not. "

  • "I seldom issue a 5-star rating, but this gem hidden in an office building definitely has rated it! From the food to the service to the ambiance, this is a great place. I chose the Veal Scaloppini and was not disappointed--a generous portion with a nice side of pasta. My wife chose lobster ravioli and was stuffed. They were out of a reasonably priced Tuscan that I chose from the wine list and they upgraded me to a better bottle at the original price. I highly recommend this restaurant!!!"
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "The calameri was inconsistent - many pieces were pretty chewy while others were tender. Overall it lacked flavor. The pasta and duck ragu was nice but lacked any flavor - very bland. My wife's risotto special (scallops) was fine but uninspired. The biggest sin was the travesty they called strawberry shortcake. If you are going to serve something so far from what people would expect by the name you should warn them. This was two dense dry pieces of something that resembled coffee cake with some whipped creme and strawberries in between. We did not eat half of it. Finally, I am used to paying a premium when buying wine by the glass but the pour of pinot grigio I got for $12 was almost a crime - I felt ripped off. "

  • "I love the feel of Osteria Marzano. They have a vibrant bar scene for happy hour, with amazing margaritas, great wine selection and wonderful, tasty food. The almond crusted halibut served with haricots verts and risotto was delicious! Our waiter was pleasant, attentive and very knowledgeable about the food and made excellent suggestions. Can't wait to dine at Osteria Marzano again. "

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed dinner on Saturday night, our third time there. The waiter was professional and efficient and kept the dinner moving along nicely. Drinks and appetizers appeared quickly, and we were allowed to enjoy them and the plates cleared before dinner was brought. Dinner was hot and a good portion on all the entree's ordered. All the food was delicious."

  • "The food here is very good and we appreciate the half price wine night on Sundays. The half size salads are perfect to accompany a meal. The bread is very good as are the pasta sauces. We were disappointed on this visit with the service. We brought guests with us and were embarrassed. "

  • "My husband and I took my mother for dinner here for the second time. From start to finish it was a delightful evening, the host and hostess were engaging and upbeat; our server, Angel, was knowledgeable, professional, friendly, and engaging. He recommended the tuna special with pesto so both my husband and I had it. It was delicious!! The tuna was cooked perfectly and set on a bed of homemade pasta with homemade pesto that was a perfect accompaniment. The pesto had excellent fresh flavor and a perfect proportion of olive oil to basil and garlic. My mom had the linguine with clam sauce and she really enjoyed it, lots of fresh whole clams. We sat outside even though the evening was a bit cool and thoroughly enjoyed it! We will be back!"

  • "This was our second time at OM. Had same server as previous time; he was excellent. Unfortunately, we ordered the appetizer special he recited to us without hearing the price. $16 for a small ball of mozzarella with six or seven shavings of prosciutto with the slightest drippings of balsamic drizzle. Would have just ordered caprese for half the price. Ordered Short Ribs Dinner...very good; however, the polenta it was served over had huge hard chunks in it. I mentioned that to the server and he brought me a new side of polenta. The new polenta was much thinner, but still had huge chunks in it. This place lacks a little bit in quality, but I will still try again. I'd give it a 7 1/2 or 8 out of 10."

  • "We had dinner before attending the theater and the restaurant was attentive to our time demands while serving us in a relaxed manner. The food looked and tasted delicious. There were 6 of us and we all had different entrees, all were excellently prepared and tasty. Will certainly go back! "
