A hidden gem for sure!

We have been to Marola's many, many times. This is one of my favorite Italian restaurants! All the dishes are excellent. The atmosphere in the restaurant is relaxing and the wait staff is friendly. The food tends to be a little pricey, but you will definitely enjoy the experience.

Food was not great; salad warm and steak cold. Ordered rare but was medium and ordered a glass of wine and had to ask for it a second time , timing was off. Have been there before and was better.

Went here for a lunch with some girlfriends today. Ordered one of their specials, the Sea Bass. It was served with penne pasta! The Sea Bass was delicious! The restaurant is small but very nice! Will definitely return here'.

Consistency is what to expect at Marolas, the food and service are always great. They are a hole in the wall, neighborhood joint and most people in town eat there. It can be very social.

Marolas in Cooper City is a hidden jem in a shopping center. Omar the owner has been there many years with his chef as partner. Most of his wait staff has been there many years also.

We took over the whole place on a Sunday afternoon for a party of about 40 people. The menu was set up in advance with a Prosecco toast, family style appetizers, a choice of 3 entrees, dessert, wine/beer/sangria, coffee etc. The food was delicious and the service attentive. We couldn't be more pleased.
