    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.

    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.

    The menu is not what it used to be. Very disappointing. My wife couldn't eat her dinner and it was taken off of our bill. I used to love their veal chop, and ordered it all the time, but there must be a new chef. We ate there regularly, but I doubt if we will ever come back. The focus is now more on happy hour and bar food, not fine dining.

    The Neighbors' "RAVE" recommendations were well founded...right from the Hostess initial greeting through to the last Farewll after dinner, the service was simply outstanding. Needless to say, the 'Polpette appetizer, Ossobucoo/Branzino main course exceeded expectations and will require an immediate return visit. Excellent service, High quality food, and an enjoyable/comfortable ambience make this a "Best Buy."

    This is basically a large circular bar with tables all around. The crowd is loud and yes, lively. We were first seated on the window-side and it was really loud. I asked for a booth and followed the hostess to the other side of the bar where there was a banquette...not a booth. I guess as older folks, and being our 17th year Anniversary, we were seeking something more romantic. We chose the place so it's not the bar's fault. They did comp us a nice glass of Cava which was lovely. If you are a business person, on an expense account, I'd go here in a skinny minute. If you want quiet intimacy, venture elsewhere.
