I loved the place. The atmosphere was lively, the waiters friendly, music good, the food was really good. A little pricey. Not good for a quick bite, nicer than that. I will go again and bring friends. I really enjoyed the evening.

We are moving from the area and won’t be able to enjoy this restaurant again for a long time.
Juliano our favorite waiter was at his constant best, the food delicious, and all the staff were kind and took time to express their good wishes on our relocation.
It feels like family! Can’t be beat.
We will miss this favorite restaurant.

We arrrived at 7. We had a 7:30 reservation and went to the bar for drink first. Hostess never came to get us. When we checked with her she said she forgot about us. Service at table was poor. Our water glasses were empty. Appetizers were not great. Entrees were very good.

Had a Manhattan for a cocktail, it both looked and tasted great.

Wide selection of specials, chose the crabmeat salad and Sole Francese with Scallops, both were incredibly good.

Service was excellent, too. John, my server, gave me (after I asked) a history of the restaurant and while unfamiliar with my first two choices for a cocktail (Dubonnet and then a Vesper) went to ask the chef and even offered to go get the Dubonnet and/or missing ingredient for the Vesper (very few bars ever have the Lillet Blanc).

Empty place that I'm sue has seen better days. Food portions were small. Wine by the glass was $$$$

Gorgonzola salad had almost no Gorgonzola only a little graded cheese that had very little flavor.

We have never had a sub par meal at this rustic Italian restaurant.
I prefer to let our waiter select my entree. He never fails.
Desserts are wonderful.
Service you cannot find better.
One of our very favorites and we dine out every Saturday evening.
Brought new friends along tonight and they were really pleased as well.
Great meal as always!!

The waiter recommended the steak. He said it was fantastic!! Well it was awful.
The salad appetizer was drenched in oil and the lettuce was wilted.
The chicken dish was unbeatable. It tasted like a frozen TV dinner.
The fresh Salmon was frozen and once again unbeatable.
After this experience it’s amazing they are still in business.
I would go hungry before I would go back.

This is a place for special occasions, not for frequent visits - as the cost is high.

We were so very disappointed by our return to this restaurant Saturday evening. The hostess suggested seating off the bar area where you could just hear the pleasant live music and said it would be a quiet and intimate spot. Within a half hour she seated two large and noisy tables right next to us which required us to shout at each other to be heard over their partying. We probably should have asked to be moved, my mistake. Too make matters worse, the service was terrible as it seemed the waiter had too many tables and hardly looked up at us when he was near. It took forever for the appetizers and then even longer for the main courses, and by the time he came with the second round of drinks we were just about finished eating. If my son didn't want desert, we would have cut our losses but the service for this and the coffee once again took forever. As to the food, it didn't come out hot and although generally well prepared there was little that could have overcome our struggle to enjoy dinner. We will not be back.

My daughter wanted something not on the menu. The waiter said “no problem” and served her some of the best penne ala vodka with sausage we’ve had. The halibut special was perfectly cooked, flaky and moist.

Dined here Saturday night. Everything from the appetizer to dessert was great. I started with the prosciutto, melon and figs and hubby had the stuffed eggplant. One of the specials that evening was a lamb shank with risotto which was fall off the bone tender and the sauce was delicious. The veal parm was excellent as always. Marianacci's food and service is outstanding
