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. The wine list has numerous choices and the garlic rolls are fresh and hot, no butter or cheese for people like me. I follow a... More

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. That means they are doing something great. His chef is always coming up with new dishes. One of our favorites is the Penne Ala... More

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.

One of my favorites. Reminds me of a neighborhood trattorias in Manhattan Omar the owner welcomes his guests with open arms. An ambassador to the hospitality industry. Can't go wrong with the pasta. Lamb or fish. Food always on point great interesting wine list. Reasonably priced.

I went with three friends to have a nice and quiet dinner but we found a very rude, unfriendly and unpleasent owner who offered us the worst service I have ever received in a restaurant. However, I must say that the service received from the waiter was very good and very professional. I would never recommend this restaurant.
