Marvinos is an Italian restaurant serving authentic flavors of both Northern and Southern Italy. The aesthetic inside the restaurant is as authentic Mediterranean as it gets. The warm lights reflect off the stucco walls, and pictures and trinkets from Italy and Sicily line the walls. Marvino's also has a special catering menu, so it is able to accommodate large groups who have a craving for pizza and pasta.

Marvino's menu is all about the pizza. Not only are there several different takes on pizza on the menu all the time, Marvino's is constantly adding new seasonal varieties to experiment with new flavors and give regulars something fresh to try out. One such example is the Houston Texans chicken pizza with jalapenos, Mexican cheese blend and BBQ chicken.

Celebrating one of my niece's birthdays with her two sisters and a cousin, two had not dined at Marvino's yet...everyone ordered something different and everyone loved everything! I was able to use the Gift Card I had won from Marvino's Anniversary so used it to treat the birthday girl and myself, thank you very much! Have dined here numerous times and have never been disappointed in food or service. I, and they, will be back!!

Even with Covid, we were impressed by the number of people that came in after we did. When we arrived it was dead but soon increased. Food was good, service was good also.

Everything was quite lovely. Except for the things they couldn't control. Like the mask wearing.. One change made that seemed chinky, was adding extra to entree price for salad.

Marvino’s was wonderful in every way, except the chicken Parmesan was very dry and the crusty topping was too fried. I felt it was very expensive for the quality I was served.
Staff was remarkable!! The ambiance was lovely!! I might give it another chance.
The people were delightful!

Always a pleasure dining here. The atmosphere is great...lighting perfect and never so loud you can't hear people at your own table. I've yet to try something I haven't liked.

I appreciate the manager and our server Chris who ensured our dining experience was special. As usual, Marvino's delivers a delicious and upscale Italian food experience at a reasonable price. Nevertheless, my only issue is the sight of flip-flops and sandals on various customers' feet during the experience. I understand it's hot, and it's okay to come casual-- but others are dining and would rather not see your feet.

Decided I had to return to Marvino’s with my mother for dinner and she loved it! The service was once again great and the food was nice, hot, and delicious. The GM Junior recommended our desert and what a great selection🥰

The service was very friendly. Was welcomed with smiles starting at the Host stand. I ordered the Angelotti Pasta appetizer and the Fedelini with colossal crab meat. Everything came out hot and was very tasty.

Phenomenal service from Chris, our server as well as the managers and bussers who constantly checked up on us. Changed their menu and added a bunch of different dishes. For starters we had the tuna crab tower and i had the prime filet for dinner. Both were EXCEPTIONAL and well worth the price you are paying. Absolutely love the new Marvinos and will for sure be back!

We finally went out to dinner as a family, it really made me feel at ease seeing that all the workers were very attentive to clean before and after . The food was delicious as usual. Tried the chicken permasan and wondered why I had never ordered it before. If you come to Marvino’s I would def recommend to try it!

It was a great experience, I’d never been and was curious so I stopped for dinner. Everything was delicious and the staff were so friendly while all wearing masks. Everything was organized and clean. I highly recommend stopping by for dinner or a drink. They have a great bar.

We arrived a big early for our reservation but , there was plenty of room for us to be seated right away. Our waiter was polite and helpful with selections. When my drink cane it was the wrong brand and the waiter replaced it without question. Our food was delicious and for dessert I had the cannoli. On a scale from 1-10 the cannoli was an 8.5.

Great dinner again at Marvino's. Was able to sit at the bar, which is our favorite. We were very disappointed though to see that they discontinued Veal Parmesan, but they did offer to make it special for my husband that night. I had the veal piccata which was outstanding.
