Fantastic place!! There to celebrate a birthday and staff went the distance. Food and wine exceptional.
The food and service at Osteria Marzano were both wonderful. The wait staff knew the menu well and made recommendations. The chef stopped by our table to check on us. It was a great experience.
Great Italian. Pasta is light and there is so many choices of sauces. They will make it any way you choose. The bread and olive oil with pesto is amazing. I could eat that all day. The lasagna is amazing. The tomato caprese is very fresh with the most delicious mozzarella. I absolutely love the mozzarella. This is a charming restaurant. Our server Sam was excellent. I would request him again.
We have been dining here for about 5 years and we have always had an excellent meal. Thanks Osteria Marzano for another enjoyable experience. Delicious!
Good food. Good service. They said they could not accommodate a change from 2 to 3 for the time that I wanted, 6:00 PM. There seemed to be ample seating as we were leaving, around 6:00 PM. Overall the value was good though not as nice as two Sundays prior.
Excellent Mother’s Day brunch!
Great food, great atmosphere, excellent service.
Wonderful as always. A bit disappointed when I noted the birthday in the reservation and it was not mentioned during the meal. Why have a spot in the reservation to mention a celebration it if it’s not acknowledged?
We had the BEST dinner and drinks. watched the rain and rainbow! Great happy hour!!!
We had dinner with friends and were pleased as always with the food and service at Osteria Marzano. The wine list is very good, many of the offerings are made fresh each day, and the meats and seafood are wonderful. Highly recommended.
Great food —service and ambiance —-
The food is generally good and the place has nice ambience. The week link is the service. With a few exceptions, the wait staff is quite lackluster.
Finally, after living in this area for 15 years, we found a GREAT Italian restaurant!!! The food was outstanding and found the atmosphere to be very enjoyable....we normally like to sit at the bar to eat, and will definitely do that on our next visit. Many thanks to you for making our Saturday evening so special!
The food is delicious. The restaurant is bright enough to read the menu; quiet enough that you can easily carry on a conversation; and the seating is comfortable.
Great food and service. A bit noisy, but still was a great evening
Really enjoyed my first visit, I was with a friend so we wanted to catch up, it was a bit loud across from the bar at Happy Hour but it settled down.
We both really enjoyed everything we had, the service was great as well.
Will definatly come back
Lovely as always. Thanks!
We’re huge food people. This place was amazing. The food was delicious, service was spectacular and the decor lovely. I will return. Thank you
Terrific per usual—a total neighborhood gem !!
The food has vastly improved; everyone enjoyed their dishes completely - no complaints. The service was great - warm, welcoming, and very competent. The ambiance is nice; dress would be business casual, however, the bar area seemed a bit more casual. We first tried Marzano's when it opened a few years ago and was not impressed with their wait staff - we dined here on a Saturday evening and our waitress did not know how to open a bottle of wine. At another time, we went with a group of eight and the wait staff seemed to have forgotten we were there. The food was upscale "cafeteria" at the time. Now, however, we would definitely come back and make Marazano's a part of our rotating dining options in the Kingstowne area. Kudos to their chef and their much more attentive and sophisticated wait staff!
We have been going to Osteria since the week they opened and the have yet to let us down!
Family type atmosphere yet very professional and fabulous selections. Great service which only makes it a better experience. I have many allergies and food issues and they never have a problem accommodating. This time was for Easter brunch with our grandson and his girl friend.
They were most impressed with their food. Takes a lot to impress 'young people' :-))
Thanks for a great experience.
We always feel at home here—the friendly, attentive staff make us feel welcome. The food is excellent—we look forward to the arancini, pasta amatriciana, osso buco, and branzino.
Hidden gem with amazing food and service! We started with the buffalo mozzarella and prosciutto appetizer. The mozzarella was creamy and the prosciutto melted in your mouth. Our server Nigiah recommended a great red to go with our entrees. For entrees we had the bucatini all’amatriciana and the duck with arugula tortellini in a black truffle sauce. The pastas were both homemade and cooked to perfection. We ended with a scoop of lemon sorbet which was the perfect combination of sweet and bitter. We also had a wonderful conversation with the owner Elena. We will definitely be regulars here!
I've always had a great meal here. Portions are good sized and I normally have to get a doggy-bag; the bonus is that I get to enjoy the meal twice. Make reservations and ask for a table by the window.
We have dined here several times. We believe that Osteria is the BEST restaurant in the Springfield/Burke area. The food is outstanding. The service is friendly and attentive. They always remember our names and greet us like old friends.
Thank you for teasing us with meatball Friday! They are always exquisite! The truffle gnocchi and rabbit Ragu were fantastic!
Our waitress was Naija and she is beyond knowledgeable, confident and very professional with a sunny disposition. The food is beyond delicious and made fresh every time. This a a gem for Italian food.
Food was outstanding and our waiter knew the menu and the wine list well. There was a bit of confusion at the hostess desk, but once that was sorted out, we were seated and very pleased with the evening.
Great food and excellent service. A must stop for any dining occasion.
Friday night is DJ night so it was excessively loud.
Very nice lunch...I requested a certain type of seating and they obliged to a tee...
The decor is vibrant, the atmosphere along the 'back' wall was a little too cozy for me, but was exciting and upbeat. The food, service and wine were excellent. The center island bar makes the whole space more electric. I will look for a more intimate space within the restaurant perhaps closer to the front windows next time.
Cancelled a reservation in DC because of the bad weather. Glad I did because it led me to find this little gem so close to home. Service was excellent from start to finish. Loved the mussels in pancetta, ginger cream sauce. Veal ossobucco was my 2nd favorite ever. It was a hearty portion braised with veggies till very tender and served with saffron risotto. My wife had the Zuppa di Pesce. Also excellent. Served with penne arrabiata on the side. I honestly would have preferred over linguini. Tiramisu was best I've had in a long time. Lady fingers were soaked in espresso and amaretto and made with mascarpone, not just whipped cream. We'll definitely be back!
Been there several times always good-We went Valentines day and short wait but served us Persecio while we waited. Staff is excellent
It was the perfect dinner. Amazing food, atmosphere and excellent service. Will come again and again!
2nd time eating here, enjoyed it both times, food is good, staff is very accommodating
Excellent food, nice atmosphere, very friendly service. Overall a great place that is nearby... will be visiting again.
Very slow service....guess they were slammmedfor Valentines night, but made no plans to adjust for bigger crowd.
Noisy bar; back room was OK
Valentines Day. I’m Italian and 70 from Brooklyn NY. So I know the difference between real Italian food and the chain places. This place has great food with a real Italian traditional taste, not the fake Greek or Middle Eastern stuff that try to serve in their restaurants. This was our first time and we will be returning.
