When we arrived in Bella Napoli in 1976 we were taken out for dinner and the very first meal I ate was spaghetti alla carbonara - one bite and I became a Napolitan. Throughout the Campania region we could find carbonara and it was nearly always of a type, eggs beaten, toss in pancetta and parmesan, cook the spaghetti al... More

The restaurant has a homey, warm and cozy ambience. Nice place for a dinner date. Our dinner was delicious, and there were many gluten free options on the menu. The servers were very friendly and helpful. The wooden chairs felt a bit hard at first, but didn't notice any longer once we got settled. There is a small parking lot... More

We have been coming here for years. Never have we found the level of passion in food than at Marzano's. The owner has gone over and above in meeting any special requests we have. She rotates the menu seasonally and uses only the best ingredients. We come here for our date nights. I find it really romantic. We had our... More

All entries come with a salad and bread. The salad was just spring greens and a house dressing. The bread wasn't warm, but was good. They had plates and olive oil, but no basalmic vinegar for dipping. Since the bread wasn't warm, the butter wouldn't spread. My husband's lasagna had good flavor, but it was a very small portion, especially... More

This place has really good Italian food and the service was exceptional. There are a few issues. First the ambiance leaves a bit to be desired as I felt crammed in with a lot of other people in a poorly designed multi room mess. There should absolutely be some sort of dress code as there were people in t-shirts and... More

You will not find better Italian food within hundreds of miles. This place is our fav and because prices are a bit high, it's one we ALWAYS go to for special occasions and celebrations. Great lunch place to gather with intimate friends, as it has an amazingly nice atmosphere. Just wish they'd move to a larger venue so it wouldn't... More

When I selected the restaurant, I didn't realize what a wonderful choice it would be. We were hungry for Italian so I found a restaurant with good reviews. We didn't have reservations. In hindsight, I would definitely have a reservation. The service was impeccable and was able to get us in. It's a quaint atmosphere. The food was far better... More
