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.

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.

It was pretty noisy from the bar next to us and from a birthday party on the other side. Happy people noise.

The cocktails were excellent (the old fashioned was made very well), our server was very attentive and personable and the ambience was nice with the view from the 11th floor and far enough away from the casino that there was no smoke smell like there is in the casino floor restaurants. The food was disappointing for the price paid. Just proteins on a plate with a garnish. I had a medium rare rib eye that was seasoned well but the cut was poor and it took a lot of chewing effort to get through it. Most pieces I had to swallow whole because I was getting tired of chewing without getting anywhere. My wife ordered the cedar plank king salmon and it was overcooked and dry. The brussels sprouts side was the best part of the meal and I would order them again. The restaurant is the best dining option for a pre-show meal at the casino if you want something away from the smoke and noise of the casino but next time I’m there for a show at the event center we will likely eat somewhere else first.
