About the restaurant
Small and romantic we specialize in celebrations with family and friends, or just a quiet dinner with good conversation. We are family owned and operated and have been serving our community since 2001.

Drive in to Opera Alley and be transported. We strive to bring approachable food and beverage, a sense of comfort and community, as well as a unique and quality dining experience. We call ourselves a "cafe" in the sense that we are not pretentious and offer a fine dining experience in an atmosphere of comfort and respite.

Parking in Opera Alley, and downtown, can be a bit of a challenge, especially on the weekends, so please be sure to give yourself plenty of time when making reservations to find a parking space, or consider a night off from driving and get an Uber or Lift!! Eat good food often, break bread with friends and family, spend time with those you love, and we will see you soon.

I’m not sure that I’d go back, but maybe to give second chance.

About the restaurant
The chefs at Marzano's attain the freshest ingredients to prepare authentic Italian cuisine. Owner Elisa Marzano grew up in Vicenza, Italy, and consistently refers to these roots to design Marzano's unique yet classic menu. Once a quaint two-bedroom home, the restaurant was transformed but still keeps the rustic, home-like feel for an inviting, welcoming atmosphere. The pleasing combination of intimate lighting and natural window light make it the ideal spot for either lunch or dinner. A top menu choice is the boscaiola, which features a creamy tomato and Bolognese sauce over rigatoni pasta, topped with various spices and forest mushrooms. Guests can enjoy complimentary bread and salad with every entree, so eating at Marzano's can ensure a satisfied appetite. Marzano's also aims to please those with various dietary needs, such as diners who desire gluten-free options.

Always such a special time and meal when at The Green House. I didn’t catch the hostess’s name who sat us but I had asked on the reservation for outside with an umbrella if possible and without me even asking, She rearranged the table and chairs outside for us so we would have an umbrella for a little shade but still able to enjoy the patio. I thought that was so sweet and kind. Our server Khai (not sure of spelling) always so kind and excellent. He is one of those people that instantly makes you feel welcome. Dinner and the cocktails were all amazing! Our group devoured the crab cakes, Caesar salad, multiple desserts, cosmopolitan, espresso martini, lemon drop, you name it, we probably had it. All so delicious!
