Despite a someone suspect exterior (it looks like a converted Taco Bell), this is great traditional Italian food. Entrees and pasta are wonderful. I had the shrimp divaola special -- it was quite tasty. Good wine choices as well. The salad that comes with dinner is very average at best, but otherwise a nice meal. Atmosphere is average, but service... More

We had the Mozzarella Caprese, Eggplant Rollantini, Stuffed Mushrooms, and Spaghetti Puttanesca. Each dish was exceptionally well prepared with fresh ingredients that let the individual flavors shine. Marina was... More

Marbella's is my favorite restaurant when I am looking for a good meal. It is real Italian food served in a no frills atmosphere. The servers are always friendly and efficient. The herbs used in the dishes are always fresh which adds terrific flavor. I have tried many of the items on the menu but would have a hard time... More

This is our favorite restaurant in Washington! We love the Artisan bread served with olive oil and balsamic glaze and many of the pasta dishes such Rigatoni alla Siciliana, Ravioli da Vinci, Spinach Ravioli Marabella Style, Chicken Basilico, and many others. We also love the pizza, especially the Grandma pizza, and the Cheesecake Special for dessert! Service is always good... More

Their food is always cooked fresh and plentiful. Service has always been fast and friendly. Be sure to try their Bread...it is a little different and just perfect with Italian dishes.
