We were in the area and just stumbled upon this place. It was a Thursday night in February and there was still a 20 minute wait, so we knew there must be something to it. Overall, more expensive than most restaurants but also much better. My only complaint is that while they clearly label gluten free options, for some reason... More

My coworker and I came over from a conference held at PLU. It is a quaint little house still divided into separate rooms were tables have been set up throughout.The service was very professional, however, it did take quite a while to get our pizzas. We had a great time anyway. Just know that it is a restaurant you will... More

48th anniversary dinner for 2 based on good rating. Blown away! Mussels with white cream sauce to start, seafood in sauce over squid ink (black) pasta, swordfish, 2 coffees and one dessert plus bottle of WA champagne for $104 + tip and tax. Sauces on the entrees and mussels were flavorful beyond description. Never had anything this good before including... More

Amazing. Had mussels to die for as an appetizer. Also, had burrata, beets, heirloom tomatoes and pesto. I can't explain how great it was. Also had the seafood pasta and boscaiola with wild mushrooms 10 out of 10. Favorite meal of all time.

Dined with friends for lunch. Offerings are a bit pricey. Hot sheet items were good. The butternut squash soup was very tasty. Thick, creamy and well seasoned. My house salad with balsamic house dressing was the best I've tasted lately garnished with thin slices of watermelon radish. Mahi on a luncheon salad had a NOSE to it. May have been... More

We ate here on our way back from a day at Mt Ranier. We found it online and were hoping for something a little different that the "chain" type of restaurant. What a wonderful suprise. The food was wonderful, the service was prompt and attentive and the atmosphere was very intimate and romantic. Loved it and will go back definately!... More

We took a detour off the hwy to visit this resturant while in route to Napa. We were not disappointed in the least. We depend on Trip Advisior reviews often and the ratings are spot on! The place is darling and decorated with eclectic Euro charm and has an impressive collection of Sid Dickens Tiles for me ( a Sid's... More

After living in the area for more than three years, I FINALLY made my way to Marzano's, and the restaurant did NOT disappoint! In fact, my first dining experience made SUCH an impact that I returned just over a week later for a second dinner that was EQUALLY enjoyable! The restaurant is totally unassuming, but elegant at the same time.... More
