Marzano

$30 and under
Italian
Just like the small family-owned trattorias of Italy, Marzano is simple, rustic, and generous in spirit. Executive Chef, Robert Holt, draws his inspiration from Southern-Italy, with an emphasis on wood-fired Neapolitan pizza.

Terrible! Pizza came 3 minutes after we ordered before drinks and appetizer. Staff unapologetic and aloof. Should be a local go to for a relaxing Friday nite- can’t recommend.

Started with a great Negroni, then the octopus and potatoes, shared a chopped salad then the chicken arrabiatta. DELICIOUS food, great service from Mehret (Mercy) and finished up with a digestif. I would like to try their pizza next time. It looked very good.

It wasn’t the greatest experience. A very limited menu, average food, and average service. I most likely wouldn’t go back there.

Outside seating, so it was a bit hot, no fault of Marzano.

But the service was excellent, the food was delicious and served just at the right time.

The only bad news is that we had to leave!

I'll be visiting there again real soon.

Due to Pandemic restrictions, we ate outside, so this review doesn't consider inside dinning. We were very pleased with our meal and the staff was friendly.

First, we should say that we were there at 5pm on a Sunday night, so very quiet. We sat at the bar and enjoyed the chicken arrabiatta and brussel sprouts. All washed down with an incredible IPA. (*Recommended by our adorable team.) It was fun to watch the food - pizza and many other menu items - being prepared in the wood oven, and all of the staff shared responsibilities in making sure we had an enjoyable evening!

Area where we were seated was so dark, people were using their cell phone flashlights to read the menu. Food...just okay...not the Marzano’s of a decade ago.

I understand Valentines Day is a big night but we had reservations and still ended up waiting quite sometime before we sat down. We ended up sitting at the end of the bar.

Food was very good, but service was great. Our server gave good suggestions that ultimately led to an improved experience being our first time there. The only critiques I have are that the place is relatively small so tables are very close to each other and since it being Valentine’s Day it was very busy, which made us feel compelled to wrap up quickly so others could sit down.
