Excellent restaurant. Have gone there many times. NY Strip, dry aged, is the best around.
Creative menu and staff is friendly, BYOB, but they do have a bar. Modest uncorking fee if you choose to bring you own wine.

Always great, authentic Italian food (plus a lot more) at this restaurant that was a classic in Trenton's old Chambersburg and is now located a few miles away in Ewing. Service is wonderful too, with a very pleasant atmosphere and plenty of on premises parking. And I love that you get a "free" salad with your entrée, which seems to be less common these days, but very much appreciated. And it's a terrific salad too---great dressing, fresh greens and slivered parm on top. They also have several "can't decide" choices for those who want a variety in their entrée and also a "can't decide" dessert option.

Even though the restaurant in now located in a strip mall in Ewing, it feels like you’ve stepped into a Chambersburg restaurant of old once inside. The food was fantastic. The marinara sauce on the macaroni and parmigiana dishes needs to be bottled and sold. It was terrific. The bread, the accompanying house salad were delicious. The calamari is crispy and accompanied with, yes, the delicious marinara sauce. Several of us ordered off of the Can’t Decide Menu so we all got to taste many of the dishes. All the dishes were tasty but one required salt and our table had none. Our server was nowhere to be seen for that to be corrected. We saw her again after all our plates had been cleared. The busboy who was refilling water glasses came to our table once. We are all avid water drinkers especially when drinking wine. Would’ve liked to have seen him more often. So other than the inattentive service, the food was amazing!! I will definitely go back and hope for a different server.

Exceptional service and quality of food! Every time we come we try a different entree, always delicious! Thanks for another great dinner with my family! We have eaten at many great restaurants and this restaurant is one of our favorites on the top of our list!

Food was much improved over opening season in this location. Haven't been back in a couple of years so that was a nice surprise. Nice crowd for an Easter afternoon. Both men loved their lamb dishes and I thoroughly enjoyed the crab cakes. Good attentive service also.

Our first visit to this restaurant. When we arrived we were very impressed with the greeting that we received from one of the owners and the atmosphere was very impressive. Our waiter was excellent. However some of the food we ate seemed bland and flavor and proper seasoning. most of the entrées were like that however the appetizers were better. We like everything else so much I was hoping that the food tasted better . We will definitely try it again and order different types of entrées to see how we like them

It was a great experience from when we arrive til we left. Jackie our service was courteous, friendly, attentive without being pushy. We were seated at very comfortable table in area that we requested from the hostess. The food was outstanding. We enjoyed the lasagne and gnocchi very much and was a great value.

Went with a party of 6 and overall it was a good experience. Their menu works well for my indecisive brain, especially the “can’t decide” portion that gives multi entree samples in one. My only two complaints was the “appetizer sampler” our waiter so thoughtfully suggested was a $70 surprise on the bill that was not worth that price tag and my entree in particular (veal melanzane) was bland and quite a letdown. Luckily there were other great entrees around the table I could pick at.

Tastefully appointed dining room. Prompt service and, while they have a full service bar, allow customers to bring their own wine for a small corkage fee. Food was excellent and fairly priced. Portions were large so we got to enjoy leftovers.

Had a fabulous time. We’d been to the original restaurant in Trenton and just knew the food would be great. It didn’t disappoint and the atmosphere was even better than we’d expected. Much bigger than the old place. I highly recommend it and we’ll definitely be back soon.

I ordered the Seafood Rustica and it was delicious. The Calamari was a great appetizer...very crispy. The Tartufo and Arctic ice cream were also excellent. Our guests ordered the egg plant parm and that also was ery good.

Have dined at Marsilios multiple times over the last several years. We noticed a decline in the quality of the food during a visit in December, but we attributed that to the Holidays. Last Saturday we again made reservations and noticed that the quality of the bread, poorly prepared appetizer and the entree in general did not come close to our expectation of the restaurant. We dine out every Saturday night, occasionally with friends, and will in the future find another restaurant to fill the void left by the downturn of Marsilios food. The service and drinks/bar remain excellent but not enough to warrant a return visit.

Worst restaurant I have been to in years. Must have a new chef because the last time I was there about 2 years ago it was excellent. Place was almost empty for a Friday night which tells me a lot of people got the same experience I had.

In the area for business and used Google to find local restaurants, as I do not patronize chain restaurants. The hotel also made recommendations but I decided to go with my gut feelings and I was not disappointed. Upon entering I was met by Alan (the owner) with a warm greeting and promptly seated. The wait staff knew their menu, made suggestions and was very pleased with the service. I look forward to my next meal when i return to the area.
