I’m not a big fan of Italian food, but I love this place. The food is fresh and high quality. Service was very attentive. There was a party by the bar but we were seated on the opposite side so it was festive. We love the staff, who are all friendly and engaging. I would recommend it to everyone.

I've been to Osteria Marzano before and this was the best meal yet for all four of us at our table. The service person was helpful in recommendations and accommodating to our needs. It was a bit noisy on arrival, but may have been Christmas Cheer blossoming at the bar. Loved the evening and continue to enjoy taking friends here.

Love the fact it is a Chef owned restaurant and special needs are taken into consideration. Have taken many friends and family and they are always happy afterwards.

Lasagna is very good. Fettucine Alfredo (I get it with linguine instead) is very good. I love the bread they serve with pesto oil. The pizza is made right in front of you in a pizza oven. It's also very good. I like the crust.

We have very mixed feelings about this visit to OM. Friday nights are wild and crazy. If you want a really exciting, fun bar scene you should go here on. Friday evening. Alas, we went to celebrate a birthday and it did not go well. So loud we got headaches, and service was not to their usual standards. While we were delighted to see so many happy people at the bar, and great business for OM, it spoiled our visit. So much so that we left as the entrees finally arrived (not too hot).

So to recap, love this place, food is amazing, but do not go on a Friday unless you want a really loud, hectic bar scene all around you. Lesson learned.

Ate here with three girlfriends. We loved the salads, esp the new Farro salad -- one with salmon and one with shrimp -- delicious. Two friends shared a flatbread pizza with sliced veggies. They loved it--the crust was very much like a cracker around the edges which they liked but it is not for everyone. The wines by the glass had a good selection, a bit high priced for the area, but served quickly and was good selection. The main complaint was the noise. this was a weeknight yet the bar was hopping (happy hour lasts til 7pm) and the music was way too loud because there was no sound absorption in the areas for dinner seating. So, a design issue I guess. If I was single and wanted to mingle with professionals, this would be the place.

Everything was great. Serviced was timed correctly for the occasion. From when the wine was brought, to appetizers and entrees, followed by desert. Everything was great for the occasion because we were not in a rush and wanted to enjoy ourselves so being rushed was never a feeling we got. The only thing that was a little off was the Carbonara I ordered. It was a little on the salty side. Not sure if the cook/recipe acknowledges that ham is already a fairly salty meat and not sure if salt was added on the sauce and egg as it was being cooked. Other than that everything was terrific, as well as the atmosphere. I’ll definitely be returning again. One thing which I liked seeing in for the location it was at was the fact that the server placed items on the table and cleared the table all in accordance to proper table etiquette, which I don’t personally care in most cases but in this one it gave a nice touch to our dinner experience and it was noted. Now the tiramisu was fantastic. Tiramisu is not my desert of choice but my wife is picky when it comes to certain dishes and she loved it. Thank you for the great night.

Thank you to Osteria Marzano for making our wedding anniversary celebration so special. We were greeted by name by the host. Both he and our waitress wished us a happy anniversary. We were also given a glass of prosecco - so nice! Our waitress was also very kind in helping me select my entree as well as the right glass of wine to go with it. She was really good and I'm sorry that I didn't get her name.

I've never had a bad meal here and that night was no exception. I loved the aracini balls that we had as an appetizer and the new tonno dish was equally delicious. I have also never had more flavorful vanilla gelati, though the chocolate and the pistachio were also very good.

We are looking forward to our next visit to Osteria Marzano.

Amazing, as ever. The food was delicious (had the cheese plate appetizer & the agnolotti entree). Enjoyed a most excellent Barboursville Cabernet Sauvignon. Waitstaff was attentive, but astute enough to let us sit & chat when we wanted. So rare these days. Loved sitting near the window and watching dusk fall & the fountain lights come on. Perfection.

The noise level was very annoying until we were moved to the private dining room We asked the waiter to not bring our meal
until we finished with our cocktails but were served shortly after the placement. My friend's dinner was acceptable but over priced. My veal picatta was tough and over done.

Attended a special event when the restaurant was closed to general patrons; i.e. a watch party for the 2018 Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix with an Italian car club of Ferrari fans. Plenty of great Italian food. Race was shown on MANY TVs throughout the restaurant. Also, the scene out the window of several Ferrari's, Alfa Romeos, etc was incredible. But that might've just been that day. Would go back on a regular day and try it.

We were there for the Italian Grand Prix Viewing Breakfast and coming here is one of the highlights on our event calendar. The food is always wonderful at Osteria Marzano. The people and atmosphere really help to make this a great event! Even on a day as busy as they were for the viewing party, they took the time to celebrate one of our member's birthdays with a song and a Tiramisu.

Thank you Osteria Marzano, I will definitely be back!

Second time that I have attended the Fiat Club of Washington DC’s annual breakfast for the Grand Prix of Italy. Osteria Marzano could not be more accommodating, courteous, or friendly to the group. Plenty of good quality food, nice variety—perfect location and staff for the occasion.

Two delicious vegetarian pasta dishes. We were delighted!
Only complaint: the waiter whisked away my partner's salad plate--and brought her entree--before I had finished my salad. Always makes us feel like we are on an assembly line.

Another wonderful dinner / evening out at Marzano's. It is great to have such a fine restaurant in the neighborhood. Locating the restaurant in the maze of buildings may be difficult for the first time diner. Parking may also be problematic but there are reserved spaces. We both had the salmon Alla Griglia... Simply mouth watering delicious ... and a nice bottle of Malbec. We will return since this is one of our favorite restaurants in Northern Virginia.

Always great food, generally good service. Not much in the way of "noise-absorbing" textures in the (attractive, sleek, modern) decor, so if it's crowded, you won't be able to converse easily with a group of more than 4. If you get in at a slow time, that's not as much of an issue, but when going with a larger group that you'd like to be able to have a discussion, pick a slow time.
