Great time with friends
Food is excellent as always. Brought friends for first time and had a great time. Good menu options.

We used to dine in Marsilios in the Burg, first time for us in Ewing and it was very good. We will keep it on our list!

Loved the food, veal parm, chicken pharm and their panko crusted snapper where soo good.
5/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
We used to dine at the Marsiello's in Trenton and weren't aware they had opened this location in Ewing. The atmosphere was warm yet nice. My husband had the chicken cacciatore and I had veal parm. Both were delicious. We will definitely be returning.

Good Food and Large Portions
The food is very good and portion size is on the large size. Four of us had dinner and all took home leftovers. Our service was a little slow due to the waiter having a table of 8 he needed to deal with. The table size needs some improvement or they need to take off some of the table items as there was very little room when appetizers, bread and out wine bucket was put on the table. While this table was for four, it really would have been a better table for 2 or 3 people. Overall I would still recommend a visit to Marsilios's Kitchen.

Great Evening at Marsilio's
Went there for an early dinner on 5/11/2013. From the moment we sat down, it was a perfect experience. The owner takes time to visit each table and the service is attentive without being intrusive. Food was perfect. We enjoyed the sausage appetizer (will get this regularly now) and everyone loved their entrees. I had a veal dish with mushrooms, it was delightful. Others had the filet with bernaise sauce, which I tasted, it was tender and delish. I had the Canoli Sundae for a treat, and the pistachio gelato was delicious. We will be returning soon for my birthday! Loved it and looking forward to making this a "usual" place for us.
5/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
WE WENT FOR MOTHER'S DAY. THE RESTAURANT OFFERED A FULL MENU, NOT A SPECIAL LIMITED MENU AS OTHER RESTAURANTS OFFER FOR MOTHER'S DAY. THE FOOD AND SERVICE WAS GREAT. WE HAVE DINED AT MARSILIO'S KITCHEN MANY MANY TIMES AND WE ARE NEVER DISAPPOINTED!!! ALAN, CHEF/OWNER ALWAYS WALKS THROUGHT THE RESTAURANT TO GREET THE DINERS. HE ALWAYS MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE VISITING HIS HOME.

Always delicious food
A wonderfully dependable place, nice atmosphere, lovely setting and BYOB.
5/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
always a pleasant experience
An always safe bet to get treated like family in a very pleasant setting. The service and food never disappoint. Never to be taken lightly these days we always appreciate that the acoustics are wonderful and you can have a conversation without raising your voice. We love modern cuisine but sometimes first-rate chicken cacciatore in a handsome room with friendly people is just what the doctor ordered.
5/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Still a favorite, but...
I think the wait staff needs to improve. We waited about 5 minutes at the entrance until we were greeted and taken to a table, we had a reservation made online. A waitress in the dining room noticed us, but did not appear to react or come to greet us. The waiter we had was poorly trained or not prepared and did not know the menu as well as I did, just read it online before leaving the house. Poor customer service will negatively impact this really fine eatery like it does any other business, I hope the ownership takes notice and addresses this with their staff. The ownership is usually present, but tonight they were not and it showed. The meal was still very good and will go back for the food and ambience.
5/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Dinner with Dad
My father and I had dinner at Marsilio's and it was thoroughly enjoyable.
The music playing in the background was perfect, ambiance was soothing... Service was impeccable.
Food was excellent!
This restaurant is a "must"! I know we will go back again!
5/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
It was very nice to find this
It was very nice to find this place after a search on OpenTable. I enjoyed a a very good lunch and a very agreeable price.

My latest dining experience
My latest dining experience at Marsilio's Kitchen was an overall positive one. The chopped antipasto was as good as any time, the complimentary bread was rustic and delicious, and my eggplant rollatini was perfect. My father's veal was likewise tender and near perfect. The raviolis were a hit with myself and the little brother. Overall, a rather solid dining experience.
It was however, quite apparent, that the majority of the staff's attention was on a back-room party. Only three staff members, one of which was the chef, were spotted by yours truly and the rest of the family. It seemed as if almost a ghost kitchen was working to the restaurant's favor, when more realistically, they were probably just busy cooking for the large group.
6/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
A very well-prepared meal.
A very well-prepared meal. I found the pork Milanese very good as well as the onion soup that came as a choice of starter with this entre. I shall certainly return for another meal.
6/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service was pleasant, accommodating, and timely. Salad dressed perfectly, bread had crunchy crust and was served with several dipping options, Food was excellent. Kitchen even made a requested entree not offered on menu. Shared dessert of tiramisu was a perfect ending to a delicious meal.
6/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Magnificent at Marsilios
What a wonderful dining experience!!!! From start to finish these folks are pros. Reserved a table for 6 that was ready upon arrival. Our server, Justin, was very attentive to our every need. His knowledge of the menu was very helpful to 4 of the guests that were "first timers." Apps were delightful, salad crisp and not overdressed and the entrees were awesome!!!!! I had the Breaded veal chop which was nothing but perfect. I asked to have a lemon-caper sauce instead of the menu offerings which made the dish perfect for my taste. We took dessert to-go and went home and enjoyed them with espresso and sambuca. What a great night out!!!!! Will definitely be going back!!!!
6/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food and service excellent
Our Waiter was very friendly and helpful. The food was hot, very tasty and there was a lot of it.
6/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food. Service just ok. Informed them taht we were very cold(a/c) and they pretty much ignored the issue. Heard others saying it also.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome as Always
Love, love, love Marsilio's. Thank you, Alan for being the best host/owner/chef ever! I had my favorite, Lasagna, and my husband had the Sunday Gravy. Both delicious as always. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. You will leave Marsilio's full and happy!
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
So very nice!
A great place to go with friends and family! My husband and I went with friends to catch up. The restaurant was busy for a Sunday night after 7. Alan, the owner, sat us and our waiter was attentive without intruding...perfect! The only problem was we brought bad wine but that was our mistake. I am so going back again...and bringing friends!
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Homerun for Marsilio's!
We had yet another fantastic evening at Marsilio's. The food, service, and ambiance gave us that upscale feeling in a comfortable and welcoming environment. We also enjoyed a drink from the beautiful new bar! The bar is set in the front of the room and adds a great new energy! Apparently, we were not the only ones who were enjoying ourselves. To our surprise, Alex Rodriguez was there for his second night in a row. He obviously knows a great place when he sees it! It's pretty cool to know that A-Rod is a fan of Marsilio's too!
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Marsilio's Kitchen A+
We dined at Marsilio's Kitchen this past Sunday with group of 7 (plus a 7 month old baby) and EVERYTHING was great! The food was delicious, the service was superb and the new bar looks amazing. The best part of it all is we were still able to enjoy a few bottles of wine that we had brought from home for just a $5 corking fee. Such a great option to allow BYOB and a full service bar, love it! Also, our waiter was very knowledgeable and provided great menu recommendations.
P.S. the Nutella cheesecake is a must!
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Hipness, History, and Happenstance
Marsilio's has hipness in terms of decor, evolving menu and new streams of people joining the regulars for good times at the restaurant, plus a steady stream of new ideas, intros, and events by Alan Meinster. It has history in terms of the restaurant's Chambersburg past and Italian American traditions without being lost in the past. And happenstance in terms of the current excitement at the place: new decor, new bar, new menu and the space for new things to happen among friends and partners.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is one of our favorite restaurants and we always enjoy the food, service and dining experience. If you have a yearning for "Sunday Gravy" this is your place. The menu is well thought out and we have not had any disappointments. The proprietor is visible and engaged in ensuring your visit is pleasant and everything is satisfactory. If the seafood salad is on the menu when you visit, don't pass it up.
Overall, this is an excellent restaurant. Highly recommended.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great neighborhood place
My guy and I dined here recently and enjoyed the
meal and attentive service. What a great experience
for us; we will surely return!
8/15/2013 5:00:00 PM
La Bella Vita
If you are searching for that that perfect Italian restaurant that you could call "our place" you will find it at Marsilio's. The atmosphere is both cozy and stylish; they recently put in a beautiful new bar where we sat and enjoyed pre-dinner cocktails before selecting a bottle of Chianti Classico which perfectly complemented our entrees. The fried calamari was perfectly prepared; topped with a satisfyingly unique smoked onion aioli sauce. The homemade gnocchi was decidedly the best I have ever eaten, with peas, mushrooms and pancetta. The veal parm was outstanding, delicately pan-fried ( not deep fried) Their tomato sauce is to die for, and the Nutella cheesecake is highly recommended. The owners were very gracious... GRAZIE!!
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love this place and keep coming back. Food is awesome and the family that owns the restaurant works hard to offer a superb dining experience. Check out the new bar and wine list. It just keeps getting better!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time, not the last
We were there went it was Antonio's which was good but this was great. This was our first time at Marsillio's and we took friends from Ohio. We could not have been more impressed with the food, the service and the overall experience. The server arranged to have veal prepared the way our friend asked and he said it was the best veal he has ever had. We will definitely be back.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
great new bar and tapas menu
We've been there for dinner before and have always had a great experience. This time we decided to sit at the new bar and try the tapas menu. The bartender Kate has been our server for dinner before and was equally as good as a bartender. I had the crabcake sliders and the ravioli bolognese and they were fantastic! I thought it might not be enough food, but the servings were quite ample. My wife had the bruschetta and the fried goat cheese with honey, both which she raved about. Adding the bar was a big plus for the restaurant. It's beautiful and gives the place a whole new vibe! We were also told they are still honoring the byob for wine and only a five dollar corkage fee. What a great idea! I think we just found our new date night place!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
The second time we dined here and still a real find. It is evident this is a neighborhood favorite by the friendliness of the diners. The owner is visible and friendly; a rare thing in a restaurant.
Marsililos is a must enjoy restaurant for fine food.
8/22/2013 5:00:00 PM
The friendly staff and atmosphere are a winner at this neighborhood find. We so enjoyed our dinner and the staff's courteous. This is must do restaurant.
8/29/2013 5:00:00 PM
Owner is Excellent
We went after reading the reviews on Open Table. The food was terrific, atmosphere was perfect, and the owner was excellent. He talked to every table and sincerely showed an interest in his customers and their happiness with the dining experience. We would absolutely go back again when in the area (or even for a long drive) and have been talking about it and recommending it to others ever since.
8/29/2013 5:00:00 PM
Always delicious and well
Always delicious and well prepared, the tasty pastas and entrees are so e of the best in the area. Portions are substantial, so bring your appetite.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really enjoyed the food
We had a group of five that evening. The homemade gnocchi were delicious and very light. I like the idea of the "I can't decide menu"
you can get a taste of multiple items. Everyone enjoyed their meal, nice size portions. Nice decor. We will definitely return.
8/30/2013 5:00:00 PM

9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Aces of Places
The visit to Marsilio's ranked among the top visits in years. The greeting by Allen, the special seating, the service, the dinner - - - they were all top shelf. I would change nothing. I was tossed between the Veal Parm and a repeat of the Chicken cacciatorri and this visit, chose veal. Nothing left to wrap and nothing to take home. Bon Apetit!
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Celebrated our anniversary just the way I wanted...Overall very good service, Good food selection and ambience was perfect.. The veal chop special was great, Drink's were Little Pricey but well worth it. Celebrated with another couple and everything was beyond what we expected. Would recommend to friends!
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
A continued favorite
Again my guy and I enjoyed dinner at this restaurant.
9/12/2013 5:00:00 PM
Marsilios's Kitchen never
Marsilios's Kitchen never disappoints me!!! With the addition of the new bar I'll be sure to come early to my next reservation to enjoy a martini. Consistently excellent in every aspect from the front of the house to the back of the house. Keep up the good work!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
A positive dining experience
We enjoyed another great dinner with a wonderfully attentive young waiter. The owner has a presence and that is a plus as he is welcoming.
The food is consistently good and expertly prepared.
9/26/2013 5:00:00 PM
A great gem
Marsilios is an excellent resturant. It has a very very relaxing atmosphere. From when you are greeted at the door to when you are asked about your meal on the way out they make you feel welcome. They have recently put a bar in the dining area. It is fairly small but there seemed to be a good size selection of wine and alcohol. The food was amazing from the bread to the the salad to their specials. Yet it was the desserts that blew me me away. The creme brulee and and cheesecake were delectable. The price were very reasonable, i had brought my on bottle of wine not knowing they put the bar in and there was a uncorking fee. All in all it was a great experience that I would recommend to any group or couple for any occasion.
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
A consistent Winner
My guy and I enjoyed a meal and were pleasantly surprised at being seated in the larger room. The restaurant was full despite a rainy evening. The dinner was superb as was the service. From the ease of reservations through to the excellent Tartufo for dessert, this continues to be a consistent favorite for us.
10/10/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great dining in Ewing
My wife took me to Marsilios for my birthday on a recomendation from a coworker. While the exterior is nothing all that special and the parking is around the back, all that changes when you go inside. The staff is warm and friendly, and very attentive. The setting was quite nice and the food was very good. I had the veal special and my wife had the chicken cacciatore and we enjoyed them both. For dessert we had the cheesecake and the vanilla cappacino. Mmm good. I would highly recommend Marsilios Kitchen.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food great as usual, along
Food great as usual, along with the full returned restaurant and bar. I think my out of town business guest and I must have drawn a "fill in waiter" who normally busses tables, etc. Thus service was not up to it usual standards.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Quiet Dining Experience
My first time going to Marsilios Kitchen in Ewing, NJ. The food was fabulous, the service was very good and the owner was out and about, and very friendly. I loved the semi-formal and low key atmosphere. The lighting was just right and conversation with others at the table was very easy. Definitely a restaurant I will return too, and recommend to others.
10/21/2013 5:00:00 PM
Marsilios is only getting better. The food is very good. The staff timed our three courses perfectly with the kitchen, eventhough it was a busy night. Every plate was up to temperature, and delicious. The decor is very comfortable and inviting. Overall, this is an excellent dining experience, and a value regarding price. Also, it's a fun place to go to see friends, locals, and the Trenton-capital movers and shakers.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Better Than I Remember
Haven't been to Marsilio's since the Trenton days and they have only gotten better. We thought it was very busy for a Sunday evening which says something about their loyal following. We all had veal dishes and everyone reacted immediately to the quality of the meal. The room is great with ample room between tables. I think they may have been a little short on help, but the young lady hustled and we were not inconvenienced. Marsilio's is not just around the corner for us, but we will get back there when we can. One of the best Italian restaurants in the region.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Marsilio's always delivers
For the mother in laws birthday..a date night with the spouse..or just a relaxed dinner out in a handsome setting with excellent friendly service and always reliable cooking Marsilio's always delivers.Our recent visit was no exception...the veal special was delicious...the service warm..ande the mother in law had her first affogado...her new favorite dessert.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Again visited Marsiio's the after Thanksgiving looking forward to a pleasant evening. The place was lively and I enjoyed a Pumpkin Martini that was yummy, to say the least. The dinner was delicious, we always enjoy the clams casino!
This restaurant is a gem to be experienced.
