This was the first time since the pandemic started that we have been able to get together and couldn’t have selected a better restaurant.

The food and service is always phenomenal.

We love Marzanos. Have been going here for several years and food has remained outstanding. Italian is our favorite (my husband is Italian and knows really good authentic Italian food).

We ate outside in heated bubble. Music was lively and service was attentive. Chef came to table to hand deliver my plate after a small error in original order. Very charming place given office park location. Bathrooms are must to see for wall treatments. Food was outstanding !

The food was consistently great! Very pleased with menu options and how all the food tasted! The value per portion is a little higher than preferred. The atmosphere was nothing special and the "window view" was less than desirable. The staff were all very pleasant with quick service. Overall pretty enjoyable!

We had a very nice waitress...she was great, and did not rush us at all. The host that brought us to the table/ globe mumbled something to us about having a time limit due to the reservation schedule. It was a Tuesday night, and only one other party was dining in a globe...in addition, there is an automatic gratuity of 22% added to the bill for dining in the globe. I wasn’t aware of this ahead of time, but I still would have made the reservation. If you are hoping for ambiance, schedule a late dinner, once the sun goes down and you can enjoy the lights. The owners could definitely spruce it up with lots of potted plants, especially since they add the surcharge,gratuity, to cover the use of the globe.

As for the food, the meatball appetizer was the best! I also enjoyed the risotto, but my husband felt that the chicken he added to his fettuccine was dry and the fettuccine a bit bland. We shared chocolate cake for dessert that was rich and delicious, and beautifully presented with a birthday message...all in all, I’d go back again and try something different from the menu.

My party of 4 ate outside in the patio bubbles, which is a great idea. The food was incredible. However, I think patrons should be made aware that there is a PPE charge and a 22% gratuity added to the check (even for our party of 4!). Neither the website nor Open Table informed us that these charges would be on our bill.

The food and service were outstanding. Kudos. The bubble set up outdoors was good but they only have a few of those so it could be hard to get a table there in good weather.
The teramisu was the best I can remember ever eating. First class all the way.

They have outdoor dining set up in bubbles. OM was pretty busy and almost too noisy for ordinary conversation on a Friday evening. Based on a friend's recommendation, we ordered the pepperoni and sausage pizza. They claim the sausage is house-made and it too lightly seasoned for me, but the pepperoni was excellent. Overall the pizza was delicious. The house salad is nicely dressed - not too acidic to put off our wine. But is was pretty boring, otherwise. (No point in ordering a Caprese salad with tomatoes out of season. I don't know why restaurants offer it with anything except vine-ripened ones.) My husband ordered a a tiramisu for dessert because it is his mission to test every tiramisu on the planet. It was not a traditional presentation, but it was excellent. The Montipulciano wine was excellent but cost half our $100 bill.

Outside in a clear plastic tent it was quite warm. However, one of us wasn't vaccinated so we tied the plastic zipper doors open. The staff was very, very helpful in doing this for us. Food was great.
Inside the place was very busy with few to no masks.
Service outside was great.
They couldn't have been more accommodating.

First off OM has done a great job with the Covid protocalls, the tables are spaced, yet the restaurant didn't look empty, the staff of course take all the necessary precautions and still are very attentive without being overbearing. The drinks and food besides being delicious have fantastic presentations. Highly recommend for any type of occasion.

We enjoyed eating in the outdoor pods. Not quite as nice and dining inside, but still enjoyable. Hopefully we will be dining inside soon. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The Branzino is still our favorite dish - it is outstanding.

Very good food! Excellent service! Drinks were good. I had Eye Candy. Food was very good. I recommend the igloo for a private and COVID free experience. Music was so sorry but it was great to have our own space! Little heater was perfect. Desserts were great!

Went here for my anniversary, however, we frequent the place because their food is unlike anything else we found in the area! The muscles in the panchetta cream sauce is the best thing ever! Get an extra bread basket Bc you don’t want to waste that delicious sauce!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the igloos!
It was frosty outside, but we were warm and toasty when the heater was turned on. We were comfortable without our coats. Very nice. Loved the color lights, gave an extra special joy to our dinner.

Everyone was super impressed with their meal.

The lamb was cooked perfect, very succulent, lots of meat. The chicken piccata was tender and savory – perfect in every way. The beef dishes were top-notch rated by the boys, in fact, if they could have licked the plates, they would have.

It was fabulous, as always!

We waited for over 15 minutes before the waitress actually spoke to us. It took another 10 minutes to actually receive some water. We didn’t get our drinks for awhile after that. The food was mediocre. I won’t dine here again.

Osteria Marzano continues to be a gem. It is a wonderful location for an intimate get together for lovers and friends. The menu includes wonderful, delicious selections and the food is always consistent.

We sat in one of the bubbles for Covid protection which was fun, but I would have sat inside as well because they are following social distancing guidelines.

My only slight issue was that there wasn't advance notification that the bill would include an upcharge of 4% to cover Covid expenses as well as an automatic 22% tip for the benefit of being served in the bubble. There was a notice on the bottom of the bill advising that the 4% could be retracted. Honestly, we didn't mind paying either because the food and our experience was so delightful, but thought that the notification of such should have been in advance.

We booked the patio "bubble" for a birthday dinner for two and were delighted with the experience. We played our own music, the heater warmed the space nicely, food was wonderful (tuna tartar, octopus, house made pasta, affogato). Server can speak to you through the walls of the bubble and only needs to enter briefly to pick up plates/glasses and deliver food and beverages. Felt safe and almost normal.
