My favorite restaurant in Washington!

Food and service are both terrific! I only took off one star because the place really needs expansion.

It's the Best pizza in the world to me. The rich, smoked mozzarella cheese blanketing a homemade crust and sauce that are directly from the Italian homeland recipe of the owners. I love to read the story of the owner's father and owners immigrating to the US and working hard to make their restaurants a reality and a huge treat... More

The new decor is quite appealing and charming. The seating is still a little spa re but the dinning room is utilized as best as can be managed. The bathrooms are well appointed and very clean. The service was good and waitstaff pleasent. As for dinner the waitress had a recommendation of the shrimp scampi when I could not decide.... More

Food was good, One in our party never got their dish till we had our desert, The excuse was "we need to wait for the mussels to open. The server thought she was funny with her comnments. I had a dirty glass and she told me just wipe it out it wont kill you..

The mark of good Italian cooking is the sauce. It was just called gravy in the Italian neighborhood where I was raised. There was no other gravy in North Newark. The mark of the best sauce is that it is savory, only slightly sweet and without bitterness. Just like New Jersey itself. Marabella's sauce is reminscent of that sauce. During... More

Pizza was thick crusted, way too thick to be considered Italian. It was cold! And I requested Ranch to dip my crust I. And I got Marinara! Have tried REPEATEDLY to give them yet another shot, and they continue to fail. Will not go there anymore and waste my $$.

My wife and I have been going to Marabella's since it opened, and it used to be a good restaurant. Since moving away, we have not been in months. When we returned, we found that they had vastly improved the restaurant inside and out. However, the food was not even "not good." It was simply bad, and the prices did... More

The place was very good, it was packed but it did not take long to get our table. Food did not take long either. I am not sure what I got, but it was pasta and the chef brought it out in a white cheese hoop bowl and mixed it up, man was it cheesy. I would get it again... More

Have been to this restaurant several times and it has been consistently good. Pizza is good as is the veal Parmesan. Good service and generous portions....always take home next day's lunch. Very good prices for a great meal.
