This was a very busy Saturday night. We were seated promptly by Denise, the owner, and Joe, our server, was pleasant, knowledgeable, and attentive as well. We enjoyed apps, entrees, and dessert and they were enjoyed by all of us. Marsilio’s is consistently very very good, including staff, service, food, and drinks. Can’t wait to go back!

Unfortunately, wouldn't recommend anymore. We came here 1 year ago in May for my husbands birthday & it was fabulous! So much so that I purchased gift cards for 2 of my friends to enjoy it.
This visit was a disappointment. The salad didn't seem to have any dressing on it. Three out of our party of 4 got seared scallops. Not much food & we were served 1 small bowl of pasta for the 4 of us. Very strange.
I'm sorry but I'm pretty sure we won't be back.
The service & atmosphere was very good.

This last visit to Marsilios kitchen was a disappointment. I got the chicken cacciatore and thought the chicken was quite dry and overcooked. A dining partner got the chicken sorrentino and it was missing the eggplant. Service was fine, but I did not appreciate the waiter asking “ what will you girls have tonight”. I am a female but found this way of address a bit disrespectful. The company was excellent but I did not feel like we were valued customers tonight. The food quality was not up to previous visits.

Thoroughly enjoyed dinner with friends. Food was excellent and plentiful. Services was excellent. Only problem we had was we didn't see the dessert menu until the end of the meal when we were too full. Next time we may have appetizers and desserts!

Everything absolutely delicious. All entrees come with choice of soup or salad. The veal scallopini, scallops & pork chop special were superb. Our vegetarian friend said best vodka rigatoni sauce ever. Can BYOB even though they have bar. Charge $10 corkage fee but still a savings from ordering off wine list. Parking lot out back. Will definitely return.

If there is a more comfortable, suitable, always expectation meeting restaurant for a nice dinner out with the spouse and/or friends...we haven't found it in the last 35 years. Marsilio's is welcoming, the food is traditional but always perfectly turned, and the service is darn near perfect. Yes we are fans. This Saturday we shared the chopped antipasto...my wife had the Seafood Rustica and I had the Veal Scallopine...traditional yes but all absolutely delicious.

Another wonderful dining experience. Service was over the top, i.e. personable waiter, water glasses kept topped off, attentiveness on cocktails and orders. Nice touch with table flowers for Valentines Day. Seafood salad appetizer is a must! Salads were very green and fresh. Two of us had the Roebling Veal Chop. Done perfect, and huge. Others had Can't Decide, and Scallops dishes. Both had high marks, particularly the scallops.

We probably dine at Marcilio's 5-6 times a year, and it is always consistent. Owners Alan and Denise are always making sure things are up to a high standard.

We frequently dine at this location and always enjoy the food and the experience. A special touch of fresh flowers and red napkins provided a festive atmosphere on Valentines Day. Bennie greeted us and our sever Fabian was attentive and gracious throughout our dining experience. I enjoyed the Salmon special and my guy’s choice of Saltimbocca (a consistently prepared entree) were prepared perfect for us.
This restaurant is a neighborhood gem for sure.

I grew up eating special family dinners at Marsilios on Roebling Ave. I’ve continued that tradition now that it’s owned by Alan and located in Ewing. Food still very good. What is not acceptable though is the attitude and rudeness of Benny, the waiter we had tonite and who we’ve experienced several times before. I don’t understand why he is still working there. He was absolutely offensive tonight and embarrassed us in front of our friends who aren’t familiar with Marsilios. There’s no excuse for his lack of respect he showed as soon as we sat down and Alan should consider explaining what is expected if his servers in his restaurant. It will be awhile before we bring our business there sgain

As always, our meals were phenomenal! For the second time I had the creamy salmon dijon. It was in a LIGHT cream sauce with just the right amount of dijon mustard. It was served with roasted root vegetables. YUM!

Meh. The food was okay - but nothing special. I had chicken cacciatore but it was nothing like what I was used to - here it was a fryer chicken cut up and covered in a rosemary broth. The white meat of the chicken was dry. Now they do note that this is cacciatore in the restaurant's style, but the dryness and lack of vegetables was disappointing. The artichoke hearts limone was tasty. The bread was good and the house salad was tasty - a spring mix with parmesan cheese. This is a nice looking restaurant with linen table clothes, a nice wine list and attentive servers. The food could use improvement.

Friends had invited us to Marsilios Kitchen a year ago and we enjoyed it so much we vowed to return. After Saturday's visit, we are wondering why we took so long. The decor is sophisticated and we were warmly greeted at the front desk. These things set the tone for what followed. Our server was knowledgeable and professional, something so often missing in other restaurants. He made excellent suggestions and answered all our questions in a helpful way. Our cocktails - one a standard and one from their seasonal specials - were top notch. Our food, from appetizer to dessert, were delicious. Of special note were the simple but excellent house salad and our entrees, one flounder and shrimp and the other a veal chop, both from the specials, were outstanding. Cooked to perfection.
We can't wait to return!
