Well prepared food, good portions, great service. Each of the four of us ordered completely different meals, from just a salad, to a fried dish, we all enjoyed. The vegetables were fresh, meat tender, soup well done. We've been coming here for a few years, at times may order just a salad and pizza and that's also great. You can have a nice meat or fish meal and that's always well done

It’s American Italian. Not much authenticity here, but the food was good. We tend to be picky about our Italian, so I would say most people would like it. We were looking for our new Italian restaurant and this won’t be it. Food is good, service was good, ambiance good. Nothing bad to report.

Great new find for me. I will definitely be back. Delicious. We got a bottle of Ruffino for half the price. The mozzarella and tomato was one of the best I have ever had. I have had it a million times and it seems ordinary but not this. It was a huge ball of mozzarella that you cut yourself with slices of deep, juicy tomatoes on top of a pool of olive oil. It was seasoned perfectly. I loved the olive oil so much that I took the yummy Italian bread and made sure to soak up every bit. It was nice and salty. My husband got the lasagna. Again, not boring, not ordinary. You can definitely taste that everything is homemade. I had a pasta with parmesan cream sauce. We ended the meal with creme brûlée that was topped with brown sugar. It was a beautiful meal. We will definitely go back.

Great place to eat. Didn't quite think the seafood soup was worth $31 but it tasted good. And it came with pasta em that you're too full to eat. Leave the pasta off and charge $28 and customers like me will feel less abused.

Have been many times with great food and service. Tonight the service was not great. Was seated and waited over 15 to get someone to come to the table (and only because I brought it to their attention that no one had even brought us water). A few errors on drinks and repeated requests too. They seemed to be understaffed today or just off their game for sure.

I have eaten at OM at least five times and I was impressed with the food and service. OM was not crowded but the server was absent frequently. The server didn’t ask about our meal till he picked up the check, to late for me to say my $16.50 was over cooked. We were disappointed with the service.

The food was fantastic as always, but the service was lacking a bit. OM has been my go-to for Italian for the past two years and I've been there 10+ times usually with a party of 5 or more. This time was for my girlfriends 30th birthday, which I noted in two different places on the reservation. She is also part of OM's mailing list and she received an email for a free birthday dessert.

Sadly there was no mention of the occasion by the hostess or our server until our party mentioned it, and even then no Happy Birthday. After our meal she mentioned the free dessert email and showed the waiter, but we were told he'd have to check because the email wasn't printed. Ultimately the offer was honored, but its disappointing that it was even a slight issue.

We still love OM and will be back soon. The food is amazing and we highly recommend it. This was just an opportunity to comment on how service could be improved in the future, especially for patrons who are celebrating a special event.

I have been to Osteria Marzano many times, and just Love it! But the little things they do it's what sets them apart it apart. The last time I was there, I called ahead because my husband is in an orthopedic boot. They were very accommodating, and that made all the difference.

Place looked nice. They had a DJ playing music too loud. Nobody dancing so not sure what the point was. Caprese salad was very nice. Pizza was ok, not Neapolitan and certainly not as appetizing as pictured. Service was ok to start, but server kind of disappeared later on. Paid cash as I didn’t want to wait another 15 minutes for him to return with card.

Excellent in every regard. Music was too loud . Tables too close together. Unfortunately we were seated next two couples at one table, that did not know about inside voices. We heard all their medical/ family problems. Turn off.

We were there with a friend who had to carbo load for the Marine Corps Marathon. In solidarity we all had pasta. They were four of us altogether. And we all raved about the pasta! From the spinach stuffed ravioli with walnut sauce to the macaroni and cheese with candied bacon, all got rave reviews. Can’t wait to go back and try something other than pasta. I’m sure it’s fabulous.

My wife and I eat here periodically. Most of the time when we have guests from out of town staying in Northern Virginia we recommend meeting to have lunch or dinner here. We have never had a negative experience. We are picky eaters normally in restaurants; at Marzano's we eat with gusto because we know the food is of high quality (onsite made noodles) and is prepared imaginatively and well. As of the meal we had with friends for this review, one of our guests said that the meatball in the spaghetti and meatball dish was the best he has ever eaten in his life (he is 74). Another guest of ours now makes it his default location for business lunches after taking him there.

We were two couples. Had Milos as our server - he was fabulous! Wonderful sense of humor and terrific service. Food was very good. My eggplant could have been a little warmer, but very tasty. They ran out of the seafood special for our one friend but came up with a substitute that he loved.
Only negative was the noise level. Not sure what can be done, but they need something to absorb the sound.

Restaurant Week dinner was excellent. Pesto served with focaccia was good, made from parsley instead of basil? The farro salad with baby kale, candied walnuts, crumbled Gorgonzola, golden raisins, finely chopped tomatoes and cucumber and vinaigrette was delicious, as was the entrée of boneless beef short ribs with red wine sauce, fine polenta and topped with fried onion rings that were well-drained and not greasy. The tiramisu was nicely spiked and worthy of its name. Don't know if MSG was used in the entrée's sauce, but I was thirsty, etc. after the lovely meal.
