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.

    I love the pizza selection and the staples on the menu. Service was perfect. I cannot recommend this place enough. It is sophisticated and elevated every day dining and feels special when you want it to be. I’ll always keep this place as a go-to for delicious food and drinks!

    Great service! Food was well prepared. Kudos to the kitchen staff. Suggest Marzano explore supporting some of their pasta with gluten-free pasta and/or pizza with gluten-free dough.

    The truly excellent feature of this latest visit to Marzano was the grilled romaine salad. Seldom have such an assemblage of flavors delivered such a delicious result. The romaine lettuce itself was fresh and complex, all the more so from its careful charring. The white anchovies added the requisite umami, and the shaved pecorino contributed the salty richness. The basil anchoiade vinaigrette pulled it all together beautifully. I initially thought that the serving would be too much, but I polished it off without the slightest difficulty. And the baked rigatoni, an old friend from the Marzano menu, proved once again that comfort food can also taste fresh and new after a perfect first course.

    I haven’t eaten there since before the pandemic. While I’ve continued to order their pizzas to go, somethings are meant for dinning in. This trip I tried their grilled Spanish octopus which is absolutely delicious! Their trout was also very good. I appreciate the variety of beverages. Servers are very friendly and attentive.

    It was chilly inside, they leave a door open to be able to serve diners sitting outside, the menu is very limited, and the food was fair. No frits, no frills. Would I go back? Probably not. If someone told me they were going I probably wouldn’t stop them.

    The cocktails and small plates were very good, but the main courses, mostly pizzas, were limited and disappointing. Our service was top-notch. Overall, I think Marzano has missed a step in its recovery from the pandemic closings and other restrictions. I try to take that into account and I'll give it another try later this summer.

    Everything was very spicy - odd for an Italian restaurant - and was pretty much all I tasted. We had the octopus and the Rigatoni. I found the rigatoni sauce over-reduced and not enough cheese for me personally. Service was great.

    I’ve been to Marzano’s a handful of times. I and my family/guests have never been disappointed. Pizzas are the best and roasted vegetables too (this time we had asparagus). Rigatoni pasta with pork is savory and delicious (all the meat you’ll need or desire). And don’t pass up trying the roasted octopus. So delicious! All this married with a couple of Hedrick gin martinis…now that’s a meal! Table service is informal ( it was Tuesday night), but courteous and prompt! I shall return!

    A cool Friday evening made it clear that the outdoor seating area needs more heaters. Wait staff was very helpful and hard-working, but under-staffed. Carrot-cauliflower soup was enjoyable; grilled romaine with white anchovies very lovely combo of grilled char taste with pungent dressing. Asparagus pizza was tasty but had very little asparagus. Roasted snap peas were great. Graci Etna Rosso was a solid red wine.

    The salad was not fresh. The octopus app was the bomb but the food server took away our plates so we had to eat it out of the diahbit was served in. The spaghettis was soupy and sloppy and the meatballs were bland. The waitress suggested the most expensive glass and the pour was super small. It wasn't right. Nothing was good.
