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.

Food was good; service was very good. Had looked at menu online and mouth was watering for the swordfish. It wasn't on the menu and there were actually only three entrees other than pasta and pizza. (The pizza looked amazing by the way). Loved the burrata, speck and tomatoes but it should be served with either crostini or sourdough, not crackers. Hoping that was just a pandemic thing and not their usual way of serving it as it definitely takes away from the dish.

We have missed eating in person at Marzano’s, and last night’s experience in the parklet was the perfect welcome back. Attentive, friendly service as always and consistent Marzano flavors they’ve been known for haven’t changed. Can’t wait for our next meal there!

GREAT food and cocktails! The burrata was extremely good and the mushroom pizza was beautiful and tasty. My steak was excellent and my wife's salmon was good, although the tomato sauce was rather underwhelming. Everything else was great though.

Great food but service was very slow. Had to wait about 20 minutes to get anybody to come to help us. Then we ordered drinks and they never came until I called the waiter and asked about our drinks. After that it got a bit better.

Service was friendly, prompt and outstanding! Food was very good but not perfect. The spicy fennel sausage pizza had delicious toppings, but the middle of the pizza crust was limp and soggy as if it was not baked long enough. I noticed this at adjacent tables where the diners had also ordered pizzas. The baked rigatoni with a meat ragu was tasty almost like a deconstructed lasagna. Several good Italian wine choices. We declined desert as the menu was very limited and focused on soft serv ice cream. Recommend this place as a cozy neighborhood find with decent pizza.

Happy to have Marzano’s back. Pizza was delicious. Chopped salad is overpriced for what you get (mostly lettuce and cabbage). Zumba music was a little loud but the service was friendly and attentive.

It was a perfect evening at your local pretty restaurant. Full bar, great drinks including a delicious mocktail. The ice cream is amazing ( and I don't even eat desserts) My only complain is the playlist that was more for a club... considering the costumers were older than 30's...a little jazz, brazilian, interesting music would have been perfect.

The service here is top notch. The menu options are decent given the stage of return to normal. The arugula salad is fabulous, The options size enough for 4 people. The cherry dressing is perfect with the crunchy almond slivers. We all commented we could have just the salad for the main meal it was that good. I had the lamb sausage pizza which had great flavor but the crust could have been a little less floppy.

Started with a great Negroni, then the octopus and potatoes, shared a chopped salad then the chicken arrabiatta. DELICIOUS food, great service from Mehret (Mercy) and finished up with a digestif. I would like to try their pizza next time. It looked very good.

Outside seating, so it was a bit hot, no fault of Marzano.

But the service was excellent, the food was delicious and served just at the right time.

The only bad news is that we had to leave!

I'll be visiting there again real soon.
