This restaurant is a bit off the beaten path but well worth the trip. Marzano's is real Italian. The menu is simply on par with any Italian restaurant in Little Italy and the service is excellent. This place is top ranked when it comes to total experience. I had the chicken scallopini that tasted like it was right out of... More

If you've ever traveled to Italy you know that their pizza is better than any other pizza you can imagine. Marzanos has mastered the Italian Neapolitan pizza and we're so glad! Delicious! The Prosciutto e Arugula pizza in particular looks and tastes so much like the pizzas we had in Venice and Florence. It brought back such great memories for... More

Everything from the apps to pasta was amazing! I really loved the scallops with pilaf dish! So amazing! Very reasonably priced for the amount of food! And as an added plus and huge time saver for me, they delivered my meal to my room at the Hampton so I could get more work done while on business! Check them out,... More

We had a late lunch the day after Christmas. The pizza came out late, but it was because they forgot an ingredient. Once the pizza arrived, it was very good and so was the side salad. The service was consistent, the servers were friendly and thorough.

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.
