Love the decor and buffet!

This is a nice restaurant to try. They have a buffet, not a lot on it but enough to suffice. You will get full! The food is good and the atmosphere is nice. I like this place and we do go eat here about every 5-6 months. We love to try different rest. thats why so long in between visits.

1st visit started as happy hour in the bar. Martinis were on special that afternoon and our bartendress was excellent not only in her service with a smile but the Martinis were the best I have had at a restaurant. Once the rest of our party arrived, we were moved into our own private room. 2nd visit was a late... More

I ate dinner for the first time here today and had a wonderful meal. Starting with the wine...they give a nice pour. The chicken piccata was almost as good as my home made. The meal included mashed potatoes and a wonderful garlic spinach, which had just enough garlic and the spinach was well sautéed (not mushy). Prices were reasonable and... More

Frankly, I am a PIZZA SNOB! Living on the East Coast provided me with some of the best pizza in the world; make that my world. Then after a trip to Italy and having a pizza in the shadows of the leaning tower of Pisa, I was smitten by what is known to many as the real pizza. Which brings... More

For a restaurant that had opened only a couple years ago with strict Neopolitan standards and being deemed certified at that point has gone off-track completely. Myself, my wife and her mother (who is from Naples) used to eat here whenever we had the chance -- the ambiance was nice, and the food was authentic. Even a year ago, I... More

Arrived with a party of 6 on a Saturday night without reservations. We were told it would be about a 45 minute wait so we decided to go to the bar for drinks and appetizers. Our server was awesome and drinks and food were quick. We had the calamari and the mozzarella marinara. Both were excellent! Approximately 45 minutes later... More

I had seen it from the hotel a few days earlier and had time so I finally decided to try it. Went for a quick business lunch with a colleague. Proscuitto di parma pizza was great as was the bread. Interior was a bit dated but claean and the staff was quite friendly if a bit over eager. (They weren't... More

Excellent food, large portions and a warm, spotless atmosphere makes Marzano’s and excellent choice for lunch (or dinner). The wood fired pizza was great and the house salad was much better than the typical lettuce with a few garnishes thrown in. A little slow in taking our order initially, service was quick thereafter and friendly, allowing us to get in,... More
