We always have a good experience when we eat at Osteria Marzano - lunch or dinner. This time was an early dinner with friends. The lasagne is a hit every time - we introduced it to one of our friends, too. I enjoyed the grilled branzino, but am not a fan of cruciferous vegetables with fish. I think that flavor tends to overwhelm the fish gentleness. And the pasta served with the fish needs MORE flavor. The fish was great, though. Olives to start are almost a reason to go on their own!

We had a lovely meal. From the tuna tartare to the short ribs. All accompanied by a wonderful bottle of wine and our very attentive waiter.

This place is THE hidden Italian gem in the area. The menu has got a modern flair, but uses classic ingredients which are always top quality. They don't have a lot of seats so it's pretty quiet and strikes a great balance between feeling hip and modern but also welcoming. Value-wise, portions are very generous, and the wine prices by the bottle are actually really reasonable. Love this place and for my own selfish reasons hope it doesn't get too popular!

Food was very good, and has a nice wine list. The atmosphere is modern but cozy. It's a gem for the Springfield/ Kingstown area and we will be going back for dinners and happy hour outings. The father & daughter ownership team really care and it shows.

Osteria Marzano is always the place to have a great meal. We wish we found this restaurant years ago. Chef Marzano makes the best veal parmigiana in Northern Virginia.

Best Italian restaurant in Northern Virginia. The specials are always a treat but the regular menu is also great. The pasta and sauces are fresh and delicious. The meatball appetizer is a must. Drinks and wine are good and well-priced.

This was our 3rd visit to Osteria Marzano. The first was an excellent experience while the second was a mess on almost all levels. So two years later we tried it again albeit with trepidation. We are happy to report the food was uniformly good especially the mains of tuna and risotto with scallops. The restaurant's take on a caprese salad was fair but one can not expect wonderful tomatoes in January. There is an extensive wine list with a strong emphasis on reds but the selection by the glass especially for white wine is limited. There bar scene is lively with but with an even livelier noise level. Unless seated in a backroom one needed to shout to have a conversation. We will not wait two more years to return.

We love this place! And every time we go are never disappointed. We took friends passing through town
and they were blown away with all the handmade pastas and the freshness of all our special selections.
FYI: Go off your new years diet and get the Mac and Cheese with Carmeled Bacon!

If you go at lunch - ask for Marasole to be your server!

Was a little skeptical but what a great place. Great food. Service was ok. Wine pours were our biggest disappoint. For $14 per glass, you would expect more than 5 or 6 ounces. Other than that, we would definitely come back for the food. Pizza fantastic!
