I've been coming here for over 8 years & made it through some rough spots in new ownership. Tonight's special of seared tuna & vegetable risotto was excellent. Service was cordial & quick. Jeff, the new owner, is learning his way around. Looking forward to seeing how he puts his own signature to a longtime Italian town favorite.

The sandwiches are fantastic if you want to have a casual bite from the deli section. Everything I've ordered from there has been very good. In the dine-in section they have a really good oil and vinegar-based seafood salad. Their puttanesca is the best in town and the pasta with eggplant and mozzarella is quite good. Pizzas are good too.... More

This is our third Mother's Day at this restaurant. THIS WAS AWFUL! It took at least 15 minutes to get menus. They said there was NO BREAD...this an Italian place on Mothers Day..what? Horrible service (except for the wonderful waitress that has been there for years). SO sad this our favorite place. WHY?? Complete FAIL.

A luncheon for 20 was scheduled 6 weeks in advance for a group on a tight schedule. The waiter was unaware that the menu was already selected, suggested pasta, then said one choice was unavailable. The owner had to correct him. Both tables received soups or salads. One table of ten received their meal & their dessert. The other table... More

The ambience is different. The wait staff is different. Just doesn't feel as welcoming or warm anymore. And plain old coffee refills are not free.

Great homestyle cooking---their lasaugna and manicotti is delish! Atmosphere so-so. And if looking for a bargain they have 1/2 price on week nights. BYOB makes it even better.

Typical southern Italian food here, but executed better than at most comparable places in the area. They seem to choose ingredients and seasonings more carefully than their competitiors, and I've never been disappointed by anything I've had there.

Marzullo's is decent Italian cuisine at a fair price. I see there are deals and half priced pasta nights which we didn't try on our first visit. We ventured there for a late Sunday lunch based on a review my friend saw from a Channel 2 News article online. The service is friendly and on par for this type of... More

The weekday pasta deal is what keeps us returning to this restaurant time and again. The vegetarian options are especially prevalent and on the days of the special it is quite a good deal.

They are very good! I love their food and desserts. I have only heard rave reviews about their coffee, lattes, cappuccinos, espresso, and tea (I don't drink that I just hear it from friends). Overall, Marzullo's is a great experience.
