This place never disappoints for me. It’s a no hassle effort.. easy to find, ample parking, great food and great vibe. It’s such a low key spot with high class energy! Servers and bartenders are nice, attentive and engaging. Will definitely be back!

I was hoping for something a bit more special from Osteria Marzano. I had the fettuccine bolognese that was quite good. My partner had the veal picatta. Unfortunately, the veal was very tough and not to her liking. We informed the server but there was no effort to offer an explanation. This was my birthday dinner celebration and we felt somewhat let down.

Food was tasty, but the chicken was a bit dry and the mortadella on the pizza cace de peppe was in very large slices. Probably would have enjoyed more if it was diced. However, the appetizers and desserts were delicious.

Although the other 3 diners in my party all loved their food, my meal was very disappointing. 3 course prix-fixe meal during restaurant week failed on two of the courses. I had the meatball appetizer, chicken saltimbocca, and Tiramisu. The meatball was surpisingly spicy, but very good. The chicken was dry, flavorless, with almost no evidence of prosciutto or the white wine sauce. Not worthy of this restaurant. The Tiramisu was not Tiramisu in my way of thinking. It was a flavored pudding in a glass. Hits at my table were the mussels appetizer, the salmon main course and the gelato dessert. If you stick with those you will have a great meal. Service, as always, was excellent.

Everything for the most part was great . It was restaurant week and the menu was fabulous although several of us had the seafood special.
It was a busy night. Our mussels appetizer was not prepared as we asked with the ginger cream. It was served with the white wine. The waitress did not attempt to rectify. Risotto was too Al dente for one of my guests so she was able to choose another dinner .
We enjoyed our evening and we will return.

My husband and I had a lovely dinner here last night. Our server Emily was great--friendly, knowledgeable about the menu and working hard on a busy night. I ordered from the Restaurant Week menu--burrata, grilled salmon/asparagus/fingerling potatoes and tiramisu --and everything was prepared perfectly! My husband got the sea bass with a pesto pasta, which was delicious, but pretty oily with the pesto. Looking forward to returning soon!

Unassuming location, located on the main level of an office building in an office complex, but once you open the door you walk into a different world that is filled with happy vibes and great energy. Great Italian food and friendly service. Definitely will return. Recommend reservations, especially on a weekend night.

Arrived early for a 7:00 reservation and was immediately seated. Service was phenomenal even though they stated they were short staffed. The food was to die for. Tried multiple different things. Definitely get the calamari you will not regret it!!!

Was very grateful to come here on New Years Eve. My girlfriend has a seafood allergy and it was very hard to find a place without a pre fixed menu that didn’t contain some sort of shellfish. Thankfully Osteria Marzano offered their full menu for the night. It was delicious.

Great dining. Food was great and service is always friendly. Food was a little slow to come out, but we were told this up front (short staffed due to Covid). Will definitely dine here again.

Highly recommend OM. Excellent go-to date-night neighborhood venue. This time I was a singleton-diner on Christmas Eve for The Feast of Seven Fishie-Wishies. Bartender nailed my Natale "Sbagliato" - a Negroni with Prosecco instead of the gin. Great service from Naija B. 4-stars instead of 5 on the food because the 1st course calamari came out a tad soggy and the 2nd course Cioppino was way milder than expected and lacked the usual OM "Wow!" factor in the seasoning. Gentle buzz, full tummie, and all was right with the world.

My wife and I enjoyed our dinner immensely. Not only was the food excellent, but the service went above and beyond to cater to our needs. Emily, our waitress, was attentive and predicted our needs expertly. Extremely satisfied with our experience and will be returning. My one desire for next time is a more intimate environment for a date night. We were right next to the bar and it was quite loud. I would have preferred a location further from the noise. However, it did not hurt the overall experience too much.

I like this restaurant it’s in an office building so unless you know about it, it’s a little out of the way but it’s good. Beautiful dinning room in a modern setting. The food choices many and there are ways great specials.

Friendly staff, great food, beautiful setting. You need to make reservations and there a dress code.

This was my first time at Osteria MAarzano, and I loved! it.
Thanks to our waitress, Naija, we were greeted immediately and made to feel welcome right away.
Our appetizers and the main course were both amazing. I had the amazing Agnolotti, and it just melted as I ate it. The pasta was fresh and cooked to perfection. It was not overflowing with cheese, but had just the right amount to want to go back for more.

Thanks to the chef an all the wait staff for a wonderful service as well.
Definitely planning to go back again.
