Once was Amazing, No Longer Has Neopolitan Standards

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... read 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

When you dine at Marzano's you will find a warm, inviting atmosphere in a very clean dining establishment. We were greeted by very attentive staff including a server who met our every need all evening long. You are provided delicious, hot, fresh bread accompanied by olive oil and fresh Parmesan cheese. We requested some balsamic vinegar to add to our... More

We set out for Marzano's on Saturday evening. We were seated promptly and the restaurant was busy. Our waitress seemed very professional and nice. She brought out the food which seemed too quick. I told her that I ordered veal parmigiana not chicken when she set the plate in front of me and said it was chicken. She set down... More

I was looking for a restaurant that had some energy, but where you can still have a conversation on. Friday night. Mariano's worked out great. The 1000 degree oven up front spits out pizza's in just a few minutes and adds a charm. The dark wood adds warmth to the place. The food was very good. I had the scallops... More

October 23, 2014: The last time we stopped in to this building, it was a steak place. Now it's an Italian place, with the same owners, from what we were told. The service is relaxing and it was nice to be able to walk across the hotel parking lot to get to Marzano's. The prices are on the high side... More

We ordered our 1st pizza cooked in the wood burning oven. This is the way real pizza is made. They also have American style. Ours was takeout so can't comment on service or atmosphere .
