    Don’t sleep on this restaurant because of its location in Kingstowne. Really great Italian dishes made with love and care. Nothing is overseauced, salty, or unbalanced. This is becoming our go-to place for date-night because it has great food and drinks, ambiance is very nice for a couple to dine out, the dessert is fantastic, and it’s close to home. Definitely try this restaurant and then come back to try the other dishes! Last time, we had the lobster risotto, the burger, and calamari, this time we had the maltagliati, calamari, chicken parmigiana, and crème brûlée. Everything was great!

    Had a great dinner here. For the entrees, the veal chop Milanese covered in cheese and cherry tomatoes was juicy and flavorful, and the branzino was also delicious. But the best dish was the appetizer - Carpaccio di Manzo - which was a perfectly balanced dish, in terms of both flavors and textures. Our server, although clearly still learning about the restaurant's food and wine offerings, was pleasant and well-mannered. A few negative notes: the wine bottle markup was a little steeper than most restaurants, about 400%; the fresh berries with zambaioni that we shared for dessert was very bland; and, strangely, the olive oil tasted quite bitter compared to the average Italian olive oil. All-in-all, though, we had a good experience and will probably visit again.

    The food was great. We will come again. The issue was the server. I ordered a glass of wine. They brought the wrong one. After I corrected them, a second server thought I wanted a 2nd glass which was still the wrong wine. The list of specials was from the day before, after we decided what we wanted and worked through all the wine issues, we discovered one of the dishes we wanted to get was not available. This would have been caught earlier if the server has gone over the specials. So we needed more time to decide what we wanted to order.

    Every time I’ve been to Osterio Marzano the food has been delicious. I have the farro salad and pasta bolognese. Both are consistently delicious. The service is prompt but not rushed and prices are mod. I always make a reservation and am always seated promptly.

    I met two other special friends for lunch. We only get together twice a year, so wanted a space we could talk and hear each other well. The food was delicious. I wish there was a better lunch menu. We really didn’t want to pay dinner prices for lunch. We will definitely go back as the food was great.

    Very busy. Good for them. Service slow. We weren’t in a hurry. They brought my husband’s meal out way before mine and he had to sit wait for them to bring my meal. Not so good. But because it was my birthday we got dessert on them which was Cannoli and was delicious.

    This was our first time dining at Osteria Marzano. We went for the Restaurant Week special (which accounted for the crowd at 6:30 pm on a Wednesday), and we were very pleased. We were offered a table in the bar area, but it was extremely loud, so we waited about 15 minutes for a table in the dining room. Our server Emily was very friendly and helpful, but (like everywhere else these days) was spread too thin across too many tables. We weren't in a rush, however, so we didn't mind the service being a bit slow. My wife and I went with the $40, 3-course Restaurant Week menu. My wife had the mussels, branzino (sea bass), and berries with zabaione. I chose the polpette (meatball), rigatoni with wild boar bolognese, and tiramisu. Our selections were all very tasty, well presented, and at the right temperature. Wine prices were quite steep ($15 for a glass of rose), though the happy hour prices at the bar were much more reasonable. Their menu prices are a little high for us to make Osteria Marzano one of our regular haunts, but we look forward to returning for a special occasion in the future (and certainly for Restaurant Week next year).

    Osteria Marzano is a great place and I'm very glad that we discovered this restaurant. The food, service, atmosphere and price made it worth our drive (we live a slight distance away). The hostess and waitress made sure that our experience was perfect! We can't wait to return to try other dishes. This time we started w/the arancini and the mussels in pancetta & ginger cream sauce. That sauce was so amazing that we asked for bread to enjoy after the mussels were gone. My partner ordered the fish of the day and I got the ossobuco. Both were great!

    My wife and I have had a wine dinner here before and had a far better experience. The food was subpar. The people who come around and talked about the wine we’re great but the food was not the best. We enjoyed our 1st course and then it was downhill…. The wine was good and service (Emily) was great! The hostess was awesome and inviting but the food is Overpriced for the quality of food.

    We really enjoyed our meal at Osteria Marzano. We had a table outside, in the shade with a lovely breeze which made it a great start. We had to wait for a bit because a large party had to be served before us but we did not mind that. Everybody was friendly. We ordered salads for starters and were very pleased with how fresh they were. For the main course we had special requirements, gluten-free pasta for one and whole wheat pasta for the other. Both we fulfilled with not even a blink of an eye. The sauces (spicy tomato and vodka cream) were delicious and we were glad that the portions were generous so we could take some home and enjoy for a second meal. Creme brulee and lemon sorbet rounded out a delightful meal, and as an extra bonus it turned out that they had served the dessert for my companion at no charge after I mentioned that this was a birthday lunch. We'll definitely return and I have already recommended this restaurant to two other parties.

    Went on a Monday for an 8pm reservation for 2. It wasn't particularly full and the 2 tables near us left a few minutes in. We were served by Miguel who was attentive without being overbearing, and were checked on a couple of times by the manager. The food was great and appetizers were large enough for sharing. My friend felt the short ribs were a little fatty. We had the Nutella pizza for dessert; I recommend mentioning you want it when ordering your entree so they can time it for a shorter wait (it was about 20 mins or so). Parking is free in a nearby garage. It was a lovely experience and I'd definitely return for a date night or a girls dinner.

    The ambiance and service of Osteria is very good. It’s on the ground floor of a business building so at first we were like, are we in the right place?!?? The bruschetta, gnocchi with meatball and tiramisu we ordered were tasty. The sausage pizza my son ordered was undercooked and almost raw in the middle. He decided not to send it back but took most of it home and reheated it in our oven. Will definitely try this place again, but will likely stay away from the pizza.

    We try to support local restaurants when we are in town. The menu is very large, something for everyone from apps, to small plates, homemade pizza (fabulous crust), to pasta dishes, fresh catch of the day and more! All generous portions. We did have to go get the daily special menu, then the special dessert was gone :(. Ordered the Nutella pizza for dessert, large enough for 4 easily!
