    The first time I noticed the pasta was so salty, the presentation less appealing than ever before. It is/was one my my fav restaurants in the area. Hope it was a bad night. Noticed the service is not the same as went the restaurant opened. It could be due to COVID.

    Had a table reservation, but we were having so much fun at the bar we stayed there. Excellent cheese and charcuterie board to start, rockfish ravioli special was amazing as well as the lasagna and wild boar spaghetti. The bartender Natalie was great and so friendly! We had a fun birthday celebration. Always a great time here.

    A gem of a restaurant, that's a bit hidden on the first floor of a large office building. But once inside, you are transported to a nice restaurant with good food. If you can make the Happy Hour, it's every day until 6pm, do it!

    Food was delicious- we enjoyed calamari and meatballs for starters. Eggplant parm was yummy. Kids loved their custom pizzas. Lasagna was delicious. Dessert was crème brûlée and lemon sorbet. It was all very filling. Only complaint was the wait. Could have benefited from more servers.

    This was a great option for Father's Day brunch. The menu provided options for standard brunch fare but also more interesting dishes. Why eat what you can cook at home - get something new and interesting.

    Hadn't been here in over 5 years so I thought I would give it another try. Won't do that again. We didn't eat in the main room, they put us in a glassed in room and seemed to forget about us. Service slow and spotty. Ravioli appetizer was good but served without any visual appeal and no serving spoon even though it was shared by the table. Entrees were just ok but overpriced.

    Food service slow and no inspection of meal prep before it left the kitchen to table. 2 identical orders looked totaled different and manager attributed to 2 different cooks. Really. Inspect it before it leaves kitchen. Food quality good. Service slow as when gelato came to table it was melted. Not a fan.

    I’ve been there several times, for birthdays, anniversaries and just plain nights out and Osteria Marzano has absolutely never disappointed. The food is authentic and a menu including dishes not often found at other restaurants. We loved our meals and look forward to introducing friends to this gem. Service was also very good. I love this restaurant and expect an early return.

    We never got to our meal but were driven out by the loud background (ha!) music not music...just some obnoxious syncopation heavy beat. High anticipation over the menu and good initial service spoiled by an upscale Italian ambiance that was trying to be a sports bar. Ugh. We left after 10 minutes.

    I was really disappointed in our visit there. We decided to try it for Mother’s Day. I’ve definitely had much better Italian food for a lot less money. The ambience was nice, but they were only about three other people in there and our service was nonexistent. Our waiter had no problem chatting up the people sitting next to us, but we spent an hour in there before we even got drinks replace an order for appetizers. I would not be visiting them again.

    Service was very slow. One dinner was wrong, that person had to wait for the dinner that was ordered, while the other two people in our party ate their dinner. When the second dinner arrived it was not as described on the menu. Entrees were over priced for portion size. Very disappointing experience.

    This was a good find for a last minute Mother's day brunch. The only reason I couldn't give it a 5 was the food was a bit slow to come out but again, it was also Mother's day so that could be part of it. Definitely thinking of coming back soon.
