    My wife and I have had a wine dinner here before and had a far better experience. The food was subpar. The people who come around and talked about the wine we’re great but the food was not the best. We enjoyed our 1st course and then it was downhill…. The wine was good and service (Emily) was great! The hostess was awesome and inviting but the food is Overpriced for the quality of food.

    Repeat customer and will be coming back. The food is delicious and very well-made. In true Italian style, you will NOT leave hungry. Just wish the wait staff is a little faster and more attentive, but aside from that, love Osteria Marzano!

    We really enjoyed our meal at Osteria Marzano. We had a table outside, in the shade with a lovely breeze which made it a great start. We had to wait for a bit because a large party had to be served before us but we did not mind that. Everybody was friendly. We ordered salads for starters and were very pleased with how fresh they were. For the main course we had special requirements, gluten-free pasta for one and whole wheat pasta for the other. Both we fulfilled with not even a blink of an eye. The sauces (spicy tomato and vodka cream) were delicious and we were glad that the portions were generous so we could take some home and enjoy for a second meal. Creme brulee and lemon sorbet rounded out a delightful meal, and as an extra bonus it turned out that they had served the dessert for my companion at no charge after I mentioned that this was a birthday lunch. We'll definitely return and I have already recommended this restaurant to two other parties.

    Went on a Monday for an 8pm reservation for 2. It wasn't particularly full and the 2 tables near us left a few minutes in. We were served by Miguel who was attentive without being overbearing, and were checked on a couple of times by the manager. The food was great and appetizers were large enough for sharing. My friend felt the short ribs were a little fatty. We had the Nutella pizza for dessert; I recommend mentioning you want it when ordering your entree so they can time it for a shorter wait (it was about 20 mins or so). Parking is free in a nearby garage. It was a lovely experience and I'd definitely return for a date night or a girls dinner.

    The ambiance and service of Osteria is very good. It’s on the ground floor of a business building so at first we were like, are we in the right place?!?? The bruschetta, gnocchi with meatball and tiramisu we ordered were tasty. The sausage pizza my son ordered was undercooked and almost raw in the middle. He decided not to send it back but took most of it home and reheated it in our oven. Will definitely try this place again, but will likely stay away from the pizza.

    Excellent food, drinks, and service close to home. The only bit of disappointment was that the cacip e pepe was served with a creamy alfredo-like sauce and not just the traditional ingredients.

    We try to support local restaurants when we are in town. The menu is very large, something for everyone from apps, to small plates, homemade pizza (fabulous crust), to pasta dishes, fresh catch of the day and more! All generous portions. We did have to go get the daily special menu, then the special dessert was gone :(. Ordered the Nutella pizza for dessert, large enough for 4 easily!

    I moved away from the DMV area over two years ago (pre-Covid) and I didn’t realize how much I missed OM until last weekend. I ate here 3 times and it would have more if they were open for breakfast and weekend lunch. The French Wine dinner in Thursday was spectacular, with an amazing area of courses accompanied by some fantastic wine pairings. It was a bargain when you consider the wine was included, but frankly, the food itself was worth the price. Dinner was so good that I invited my family in the area to join me the next night. The service was impeccable and everyone from my 10yo granddaughter to my much older uncle raved about the food. The chefs table side Cacio e Pepe preparation was a show - and the finished dish was as good as the same dish I had in Rime. We even got to join in the birthday celebration at the next table. This neighborhood delight is pretty crowded on weekends but if you haven’t been here, especially if you live in NoVA, you owe it to yourself to come here. Bring me a doggie bag if your heading to FL in the following days!

    This was our third dinner at Marzano. First time was great, second time was good and yesterday was not good. Two different dish plates were over cooked and potato side dish was tasteless. Grilled octopus was slimy and tough. There was no tasty dish, and we were thinking if the chef was sick and random people were cooking. Lemon I asked server to bring came 10 minutes later. Every dish lacked salt and we are not salt eaters. At this moment I am not going back for a long time.

    The first time I noticed the pasta was so salty, the presentation less appealing than ever before. It is/was one my my fav restaurants in the area. Hope it was a bad night. Noticed the service is not the same as went the restaurant opened. It could be due to COVID.

    Had a table reservation, but we were having so much fun at the bar we stayed there. Excellent cheese and charcuterie board to start, rockfish ravioli special was amazing as well as the lasagna and wild boar spaghetti. The bartender Natalie was great and so friendly!

    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.
