Not going to be heading back. The server was very nice, but service was extremely slow. Took a long time for waters to be filled, bread portions were extremely small. Someone brought out our order and that was the last anyone cared about us. Then mid meal, when we wanted salt, more water and bread we were just looking around for someone to acknowledge that we needed something. What seemed like the owner finally came over to the table, he rushed the stuff over to us and ran off as he had to filet the fish at the next table over. I wanted to have tea/dessert, but I saw how long it took for the next table over to get their coffee/dessert and decided it was not worth the wait.

Always a great place for dinner. Reservations are necessary. Food is fresh and plentiful. Service is attentive. Only downside, it is such a large restaurant, it gets noisy

Went to Marzano's for a birthday lunch. Lunch was excellent. The lunch menu is scaled back from the dinner menu, but there were still plenty of options. The veal parm was excellent. The calamari and mussels lunch was also terrific. My son is gluten free due to his wheat allergy, and there are gluten free pasta options. He had salmon and gluten free pasta, which is his go to.

Always good food and service. We visit here quite often and is our neighborhood “go to spot”. It is moderately priced, the food is good and the portion sizes are satisfying.Enjoy the knowledgeable wait staff. The BYOB is always a plus for us so that we can drink what we like. Parking can be tight as the metered lot spots are in high demand from multiple surrounding restaurants and a movie theater within a two block radius Arrive at least 15 minutes earlier than your reservation time to allow time to park. On the menu my favorites are the antipasto and crab-o-cado appetizers, the risotto de mar, and paparadelle entrees, and limoncello cake for dessert. We’re never been disappointed. The only draw back is the high noise level in the general dining room but there are two smaller seating areas where it is more quiet.

Food was a little under seasoned but still quite good. Went when they had a fixed price menu. The soup and calamari could have used a little more salt but for some folks that’s a plus. The service was excellent. The desserts were surprisingly good.
A great asset to the area.

My husband and I met up with another couple for dinner on a busy Saturday night. Shortly after we were seated our server asked to take our order. I asked to put in appetizers as I had not yet decided on what I would like to eat. Her response, in her ‘talk to me like I’m a 2 y/o voice’ was, “the chef will want me to put the entire food order in at once....because I don’t know if you had a chance to look around the restaurant yet but it is very busy and we can’t just put in your appetizers.” Having worked in restaurants throughout college this made very little sense to me, however as not to hold up the group I did pick a chicken dish and our order was placed. While everyone at the table loved their pasta dishes, my chicken with crab meat had a very bland sauce and was not something I would recommend. it had also been sitting under the heat lamps for a bit as the sauce had a thick layer on top....most likely because we put our entree in with the our appetizers. After our meal, she offered us coffee and asked if there were anything else we would like. We sat quiet for a moment, shocked she had no intent on offering us dessert, which she must have picked up on and said “oh yes, I do have a lovely tray of dessert I can show you if you wish.” We did order dessert, and it was delicious. Overall it was a very rushed experience. I felt our server was rude and simply wanted to turn the table over which made for an uncomfortable meal. I heard great things about Marzano’s and was very excited to try it, however I will not recommend to others unless they want a very quick meal...and will let them know to be ready with their order before walking into the restaurant. Very disappointing.

Our first time here on New Year’s Eve, and can’t wait to go back and see how they do on the full menu. Artichoke hearts were delicious and my bronzino was tender and moist. Steak tender and tasty. Creme brûlée cheesecake was divine. My husband liked the gluten free pasta. Excellent service. Will return.
