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.

Glaring lighting in back dr. We were told by another customer that we couldn’t sit at the table next to theirs and management asked us to move…

Everything was pretty good, but felt extremely rushed by the waitress, she hovered over us while asking if we finished out appetizer and stood there while we ate the last few bites. So weird !!

Great atmosphere and the food is consistently wonderful. We had the arancini and meatballs to start. Super flavorful and delicious. My son had the braised chicken and it was fall off the bone tender. We also had the rigatoni and arugula salad. Arugula salad was fresh and rigatoni was good but not as memorable. Dessert was the vanilla soft serve with fudge and a spicy chocolate pot de creme. Lovely meal!

Marzano has a nice outdoor parklet space - cozy, well-heated and includes lap throws for those who get cold. Food is very solid, well-seasoned and prepared. It seems like they are struggling to do full indoor and outdoor service with limited staff. The staff are working really hard and providing good customer service under the circumstances. There are just not enough of them, which seems to be a problem not just at Marzano but everywhere at the moment. I sympathize with the situation and still recommend the restaurant.

The restaurant was too dark, as has been our experience before. The chicken dish was nicely spicy, but greasy, and hard to eat (especially in the dark.) Waiter was great.

This place was almost perfect - Great food, excellent service and comfortable, romantic atmosphere. The only real setback was the seating proximity. Our tables were so close together it felt like we were in the conversations of those at the tables next to us, which is somewhat problematic during a pandemic. We accidentally hit their tables and they accidentally hit ours trying to get in and out of areas. Also, vaccination cards were not checked. Other than that, it was a wonderful place, and I would definitely recommend it to others!!

I had forgot how good the food is here. We shared several dishes and each was outstanding. The chocolate with chili flakes topped off a wonderful meal.
They limit your time to 1:30 hours which is refreshing. Wish more restaurants would do this.

A nice stable Italian resto that ticks most of the boxes. Not a stunning dining room but still very nice and quite cozy.

The pizza was very very good, wood fired and an excellent dough. We adored the calamari salad but it could have been better with another two pieces of the squid. 4 pieces is a bit too measured. But the dressing for it was outstanding.

Service was a bit rushed with barely any greeting. Then again, the place was packed and people were waiting and staring at us to finish.

Pleasantly surprised. We live not too far away and have been meaning to try it out for some time. The two-top we were given had a really bright spotlight coming over my shoulder. All the other tables were properly lit. Tables are close together.

Food was great, server was great. We'll definitely be back!

We were at Marzano's at the end of the Thanksgiving weekend. A perfect night to be there since it was unusually quiet. But the staff were all smiling, the food was delicious and the parklet was warm. (And everyone happy to be there!)
