The food was pretty tasty. The server was inexperienced. She did not offer the specials of the evening, nor did she offer a dessert menu or coffee at the end of our meal. I had to ask for a refill of tea. Other than that the food was solid but the service was only so so.

We really enjoyed ourselves at Marsilios. It was our 1st time there and we had a great waiter named Joe who walked us through the menu. Leave room for the cheesecake!

Dined here outside on a Wednesday night for an anniversary dinner. Our server was very friendly, attentive and helpful with the menu... 5 stars. Specialty cocktails that we ordered were very good. Veal Parm was delicious. Chicken cacciatore was OK comparably as well as the broccoli rabe that were both served as part of an "I can't decide" dish. Wife very much enjoyed her Chicken Scarp. Desserts were good. Overall, the food was very good. It was a nice dinner and pricing seemed to be fair. We would recommend and consider returning.

We used to frequent Marsilios when they were located in the Chambersbugh section of Trenton and returned to enjoy the food, service and ambiance that we missed for the last decade

Food was very good. Calamari was average. Sat outside in the tent when raining, felt for the servers trying to get food out without rain on dishes. The outside has barrier of plants but you hear the street noise. Not a burger joint so disappointed in set up for a $50 per person experience. Brought a bottle of wine and was willing to pay a corkage fee but was told that they cannot. Table next to us was able to open their bottle without a fee.
Plenty of fine Italian restaurants in NJ.

Because of their level of culinary excellence, service, and ambiance, Marsilio's Kitchen is in our regular rotation for dining spots. Last night's visit exemplifies why this is so. My husband enjoyed their pork chop from their regular fall menu. I have enjoyed their salmon dishes from time to time, but I think the salmon special they offered was the best ever. Probably the best I've had in a restaurant! Their cocktails are always top notch. Their wine list is good. Even the "little extras" like their house salad and pencil points are delicious. Our server, Joe, was professional and friendly. In fact, all staff are courteous, efficient, and friendly. And we appreciate that the owners check in with diners.

Absolutely wonderful experience. All of us ate everything on our plates because the food was superb. Amazing meals and service. It was a great way to celebrate our 3 birthdays. We are even planning our next time back and plan on using their catering for our holiday get together. Thanks for helping to create a lovely memory for us all.

I met a few friends for dinner tonight and we chose Marsilios since we ALWAYS have a good meal here. We haven’t gotten together since pre-Covid so we didn’t know what to expect, but the restaurant didn’t disappoint. Our meals were amazing, cocktails were great, too. The ambiance, service, and portion sizes were also above par. The outdoor dining area was set up really cute with heaters. I plan on reserving the outdoor area next time. Looking forward to coming back again soon!

We first went to Marsillio’s when it was in Chambersburg in Trenton. Nothing has changed. It’s still the best Italian restaurant in our area, and one of the best I’ve ever been to. My wife and I got the eggplant rollintini, veal saltimbuca and broccoli rabe and shared it between the two of us. Everything was delicious! Generous portions, too. We will be back soon. Five stars!

Always reliable, always dependable……always excellent. The food is as good today as it was back in the day, and now its better with an improved facility, and a gorgeous outside. Many have been forced to put up an outdoors, but Alan and his team put in the extra effort to make it a true experience….with barely a noticeable noise from the road.
We’ll be back, as usual.
Make it your usual.
