Italian
Just like the small family-owned trattorias of Italy, Marzano is simple, rustic, and generous in spirit. Executive Chef, Robert Holt, draws his inspiration from Southern-Italy, with an emphasis on wood-fired Neapolitan pizza.

The food was amazing! Our server, Ronnie, was friendly and provided great suggestions. We were not rushed and everything came out at a nice easy pace allowing us to enjoy each other's company and conversation.

Always amazing, tasty food. Staff professional and efficient, if not always super friendly. I wish they didn’t push the tables so close together so you are always sitting too close to other diners. That’s the only reason I don’t eat here more often....but the food is great!!!

Wow. We came here for our anniversary. This was noted on our reservation.
We were greeted with acknowledgment of our special day. At the table we received two glasses of sparkling wine. WOW! This doesn't happen many places any more.
The food was delightful - octopus and burrata appetizers, fennel pizza and chicken entrees. Dessert of chocolate pot de creme was creamy and the chili oil brought some heat.
We will be back!

Marzano has become one of our favorite restaurants to bring friends and family. The friendly and inviting environment along with the wonderful service are big pluses for us. We are never disappointed with the meals we have had, well presented, well thought out appetizers, entrees and desserts is all we have experienced. We had a table of six who all thoroughly enjoyed their meal, the atmosphere and the friendly service.

Crowded, insanely noisy (can't hear dining partner, can't hear server).
Food not quite up to snuff and prior experiences - feels like they just can't keep up with the weekend crowd and provide high quality dining experience (both or either).

Too much time between courses, believe our order went to another table. Initially the background music was overpowering. Large group of preschoolers and dad’s made conversations impossible. Couple next to us actually had their meal boxed and left...

Dinner with wife and friend was great. Intimate at times - playful at times... We had dinner on a Friday night and there was a palpable shift in atmosphere between 6:30-7:30 when we left. We dined soon after a change in the seasonal menu - delicious squash blossoms! Octopus was a miss (there seemed to be too many flavors competing for the senses).

I really wanted to like this place because of the families that come in, and its location.

However, I found that the children's menu more attractive to adults, a tendency to truly mean chili spicy (which I like but not for others), the noise level exacerbated by music better suited to working out at a gym, the service friendly but slow.

Round Table has better pizzas. Italian Colors more choices, wait persons, and ambience conducive to conversation.

The place was super cute. We didn't have the pizza which I'm regretting since it looked so good, but the other items were ok. My brother enjoyed his meal much more than I did. I loved the Polenta (so so good!)

Everything we had was outstanding. My only negative observation is that it seems unbelievable to be at an Italian restaurant where bread for the table is not included (unless it is paid for.)

Otherwise, bravo!

Great Saturday night dinner at a neighborhood gem. Seated promptly upon arrival with a reservation. Some interesting cocktail options. Wine list isn't huge, but a good Italian selection; the Etna Rosato (rose) was excellent. Arugula and white peach salad was very tasty; the stuffed zucchini blossoms were a big hit! Bucatini alla Norma was good not great - tasty, but could have used more eggplant. Sea bass was outstanding, as was the bianca pizza. Panna cotta was lovely - just firm enough to stand up, beautiful flavor. All in all, a very successful meal.

Our family loves Marzano! It's our go-to "special" dinner out with 2 parents and 2 kids (8 and 12). It has a warm and cozy yet vibe and truly something for everyone. Kids love the pizza and salads while mom and dad can get a fabulous cocktail and healthy grilled fish or fresh pasta. It feels sophisticated enough that we feel like we're having a special dinner but casual enough that the kids can feel comfortable. Staff are always warm and attentive.

Marzano has become a neighborhood regular spot for us. Food preparation and selection is always wonderful. The service staff are all professional, knowledgeable and friendly. The ambiance is always spot on. We highly recommend Marzano for weeknight or weekend dining experience.

Music was way too loud for a neighborhood place. This is not a downtown club. Server seemed uninterested in the job. We all have our off nights. Pizza was fine. The chicken meal was inedible, my dining companion said.

Slow service. Pizza came out after main course. Music was softened when it drown out my discussion with the wait staff who insisted the offer to turn it down to my enthusiastic appreciation

Marzano was all we had hoped for and more. The menu was unique and definitely new with unusual combinations and generous portions. It is not a typical pasta restaurant. It is family friendly with a good wine selection. We look got to going back on special occasions.
