Good Food

This was our second visit to Marabella's Restaurant. It is BYOB restaurant. They have all the usual Italian dishes but they do specials that have a bit of an Italian twist. During the summer this place is crowded with families. You could have a wait. This restaurant is a good place for families... read more

Just finished a top quality meal of pan seared lump crab cakes ! Just as described with fresh green beans , a delicious house salad, and authentic Italian bread! Another favorite is the Eggplant parm! I have been to Marabella's many times and I've never been disappointed!

1. Great authentic Italian restaurant. 2.Food was wonderful especially as the last meal before Ocean Drive Marathon the next day. Great spaghetti and the bruschetta 3. The price was reasonable. 4. The lady who served us was very friendly and took extra time to cater to my 2.5 yr old son.

...still no better than a "Poor" rating. People who rate it as "great Italian food" obviously have never had an authentic Italian meal. Again, the service is good, the wait staff is friendly, and it sits in the heart of Stone Harbor. That's about all this place has going for it.

This was our second visit to Marabella's Restaurant. It is BYOB restaurant. They have all the usual Italian dishes but they do specials that have a bit of an Italian twist. During the summer this place is crowded with families. You could have a wait. This restaurant is a good place for families with young kids.

The food was excellent. We had pasta and chicken both superb and good size portions. They accommodated my kids well without a kids menu except they have no juice or milk and my son was not happy with just water. The ambience was classy and the service was very good. BYOB with a liquor store about 2.5 blocks away. Parking... More

An old school neighborhood fixture serving no pretense tried and true delicious Italian favorites was my vision when our family of six (4 adults) planned for a dinner out last night. Marabella's looked like the right place but alas, the word 'delicious' was missing from our impressions. Every dish we had that involved frying (calamari, chicken parm, their touted seafood... More
