Beautiful place with exceptional service and reasonable pricing, unfortunately the quality of the food was just not there for wha I ordered. The veal was not hammered down quality meat but rather appeared to be a processed patty. Was very disappointing. I will say that due to the ambiance and service I may give them another try.

Our server did a very good job and we appreciated the outdoor seating. I thought that my veal was somewhat tough. The small birthday Tiramisu was very nice and a real treat! This is minor, but the water pitcher overflowed on my lap, but the man who brought it was very apologetic. My guests had never been there before and really enjoyed the experience.

The fresh pasta was delicious! The bolognese was rich and flavorful, the parmesan cream sauce with mushrooms was filled with mushrooms, a new favorite! Wine selection was good but pours a little light for the price.

First time dining here after several four/ five star visits prior to covid-19 pandemic. Our Saturday evening visit got off to a disappointing start when we found ourselves waiting 20 + minutes for our pre-dinner cocktails. We were a bit surprised to be seated at a small table in the bar area but decided the window view was very pleasant.
Unfortunately, we watched the bartender continuously make and serve drinks to patrons sitting at the bar counter and wondered if our order had been forgotten. After my husband flagged down our waitress to inquire about our drinks, the drinks came out 5 minutes later.
As on previous visits, the food was wonderful. Husband’s mushroom pizza was delicious, my Caesar salad was crisp and lightly-perfectly- dressed, and my mussels in white wine were top notch.
I would come back hoping this was a one night glitch and not a new trend. Waiting more than 20 minutes for a glass of wine, especially while you’re sitting in the bar, is not acceptable.

The restaurant had a vibrant vibe, people enjoying themselves. Nice bar scene. I had the special , the mixed seafood with pasta. My husband had the veal scallopini parmigiana and he thought it was overdone and not very flavorful. I would give them the benefit of the doubt and come again.

We met another couple at Osteria Marzano for dinner. It was our first time, and our friends second time dining here. The food, the ambiance, the service were all outstanding. The wine selection was outstanding, the dinner special were sublime.
I ordered the fettuccini special, where they make it for you table side, and I did not leave a morsel on my plate.

I would HIGHLY recommend Osteria Marzano to anyone I know, and I will be telling all my friends and acquaintances to go and experience it! I can not wait to go back!

The food was excellent as usual. I did, however, find it offensive that they charged us what I consider to be a COVID fee. I do not feel I should have to pay a surcharge because they aren’t allowed to fill all their tables. They have been doing quite a lucrative carry out business and we’re easily able to stay in business. I should not have to pay an extra charge for their inconvenience due a problem that also affected everyone else. We coped without passing that cost to others.

Food was incredibly good but service was incredibly slow. We sat down and ordered drinks at 6:00. Some drinks came right away. Others didn't reach the table until 6:20. Paying the bill took forever. But the beef special was one of the best entrees I've ever tasted!

The food was very good and the service was great. We sat outside so there was no issue with noise, but I can speak to dining inside. We had never been to this restaurant before and were a bit surprised to find it was basically tucked into an office park. So beyond being initially confused about where to park, there was nothing negative about it.

We are big fans of Chef and the entire staff. The experience always feels like your grandmother's dinner table - but more elegant. The location is good for date night, business meetings or just to catch up with friends.

Congratulations to the team for keeping the restaurant, the quality, and the experience going over the past year!

Save some cash and go to Olive Garden. Only reason this isn’t a one star is because the tiramisu was good, nothing special though. Pizza was burnt, the sausage and sauce were pretty good.
Tagliolini in a parmigiano cream sauce was very bland, cream was the predominant flavor.
Veal marsala was decent, but the pasta was poorly cooked (clumped/stuck together).
The dining area was very dirty. The floor under our table was covered in bits of trash (straw wrapper pieces, or something) and old food.
For the price I’d expect much better quality in many areas.
