The bread they start off with is wonderful with a salted garlic topping. I went with the caprese salad. The salad had hand made mozzarella, basil, oil, Roma tomatoes...I would ask for a light amount of the balsamic though. This place serves certified Neapolitan Pizza by APN. That is something you don't find everyday. I went with their Salsiccia Pizza.... More

Bruschetto was spoken wrong, the pasta menu came without pasta and the chicken has been coocked a little too less long. Beer selection small.

Three of four of us had pasta dishes which were average at best. The thin crust pizza was delicious.

We had dinner last night at Marzano's. Not our first time there and enjoyed it as usual. We don't go out often so like to spend our money wisely. We got an appetizer ( spinach artichoke dip) and just loved it. The baked ziti was yummy as well as abundant and my husband raved about his chicken . The waitress... More

Great food. Wow what a nice place. Very classy atmosphere especially in such a small town area. . The staff was very attentive and we enjoyed the specials. We sat in a booth in the bar area and it was every bit as comfortable as a fine dinning experience.

The atmosphere was wonderful, service was great. The menu is diverse, and offers plenty of options. We were a party of 7 and all ordered different items. All came out better than expected and tasting great. Desserts were very good as well. We arrived an hour before closing time and yet were not rushed at all.

After my Mothers memorial on a Friday night we descended on the restaurant at 8:30 and asked if they could accommodate 42 people. They scurried, set up a back room for us and actually stayed open an hour past their closing to let us finish without hurrying. Salmon spectacular, ziti wonderful, chicken marsala excellent! Thank you from the bottom of... More

We were seated in an elegant dining room with immediate attention from the wait staff - we had water and bread served as well as an update for the daily specials. Timing of salads and entrees was ideal - food presentation and wait staff attention was also excellent - specialty sauces used on chicken entrees were extremely tasty. A very... More

We are a family owned Italian restaurant that specializes in Neapolitan in addition to our steak, seafood and pasta dishes. Extensive wine list and homemade desserts rounds out the food offers. WE have three separate private rooms in addition to our dining room and lounge. Come enjoy a tour of Italy in our interpretation.
