Just like the small family-owned trattorias of Italy, Marzano is simple, rustic, and generous in spirit. Executive Chef, Robert Holt, draws his inspiration from Southern-Italy, with an emphasis on wood-fired Neapolitan pizza.

    It had been awhile since we ate at Marzano, but I'm super happy we chose to do so for my grandson's birthday. The service was prompt and attentive and just the right level of casual but very helpful. And, most importantly, the food was terrific. My 90-years old mother-in-law loudly declared it was the best meal she's ever had. It was a super positive experience.

    Tried a smaller local place this time and it didn’t work out. Pasta was Barilla and overcooked. Once something is burned, the entire meal is burned. It shouldn’t have left the kitchen like that. Meatballs were 200% cooked but the sauce was good and it ended up being the best thing I had there.

    We eat here a lot but service is getting very slow and uneven. Bar is always backed up, last night we waited over 45 minutes for our drinks and over 1 hour for our first course. Tables seated after us were served before us.

    Friday night was busy. We had a reservation for 8:30 however it took a while for the previous party to leave. The food was amazing. Loved the Brussels sprouts and the fennel salad. The pizzas were perfect - even though we were thinking broccoli pizza may not be to everyone’s liking, we all enjoyed it. The pear bourbon and pecan dessert also hit its mark.

    We had a delightful time at one of Marzano's special wine tasting events. The wines were delicious and interesting, with generous pours, and there was a lot more (delicious!) food than we expected. An incredible deal! Also the set up was casual and welcoming so we had the option to sit with others if we wanted to - we met some great people, and it made us want to do it again soon. Thank you so much for being here, Marzano!

    Marzano is a wonderful restaurant with reliably delicious Italian dishes and great pizza. While the menu is not vast, there are plenty of excellent options that never fail to please. A nice wine list and good cocktails add to the experience and the fact that we are supporting a woman and black owned business makes it all the better.

    This is a great neighborhood dining spot. We sat outside, and I think it's one of the best outside dining areas around. The service was great, as was the food. I feel so lucky to have this restaurant in my neighborhood, especially given the increased crime. If you want to eat in a great spot with great food and service, go here..we want to keep this place!

    We don't usually go out for Valentine's Day, but gave it a try this year. And we had a wonderful time at Marzano's. They had the place decorated and the staff were all wearing RED to celebrate. It made the restaurant seem more special than usual. When you go to a favorite restaurant, you want to be able to enjoy the food you like. The team at Marzano's were smart to have their usual menu with some "added" items on this particular evening. We were able to get our favorites along with the special holiday salad made with crab. Everything was delicious! And we were out in the dry covered parklet while the rain was coming down. The heat lamps were working well and there were blankets for anyone who was feeling a chill. Everyone was smiling. It was an enjoyable evening!

    Hadn't been to Marzano in years, but have always liked it. Can't remember why it has been so long, probably the Covid times played a role. Anyway, it was as good as I remembered. Polenta, awesome, pasta, awesome, soft serve ice cream, AWESOME.

    Loved my experience at Marzano! Went for NYE dinner with a friend and we couldn’t have chosen a better place for our last meal of 2023. The service made us feel right at home and the ambiance and music were great. We had the octopus appetizer and the flavor was so good. I had the rigatoni and my friend had the New York steak frites- we both thoroughly enjoyed them. My cocktail (Sassy in Pink) was also delicious. I will be back!

    One of our fave neighborhood spots for a good dinner. Decided on Marzano’s for NYE because we wanted tasty food at a nice sit down place with some festive flair but without the whole extra fancy prix fix menu. Service is always great and I appreciate having outdoor dining as an option. We’ve ordered pizzas and pastas, soups, salads, and they’ve always been good. Nice wine selections and cocktails. It’s a nice sit down restaurant with decent prices, and you can be casual or a bit dressier if you’d like. They have a kids menu and this place would work for couples or families. Love this place and so grateful it’s close by!
