It's been a while since I encounter an Italian restaurant that provides tasty food. Unfortunately, the service was just okay. So the bad...my waiter didn't care much about the time it took him to come and take my order. I spent most of my time waiting for the service. Although his attitude was friendly throughout my whole lunch, it'd met... More

My daughter introduced my wife and I to this great little restaurant. It is in a converted home and the atmosphere is warm and inviting. This is not your ordinary Italian Food joint. The service is top notch and the food is uniquely tantalizing! I ordered a seafood dish that had scallops, fin fish, prawns, and oysters in a sauce... More

My friend and I spent a special evening recently at Marzano's in Tacoma. The place is very small and cozy. Judging from the apparent popularity, reservations are definitely recommended. It was loud from much table conversation, but we did not find that particularly distracting. The food was excellent, some of the best I have ever tasted. I am watching my... More

Our party of six ate at Marzano's on a Tuesday night and this place was hopping! We were glad we made a reservation. The charming, authentic Italian feel was wonderful, and the food was spectacular. I tried the pork shank (forget its Italian name on the menu), and the dish was truly inspired. The started salads were an unexpected treat... More

I have lived in the area for over 30 years and dined at Marzano's frequently. My wife and I went there a couple of weeks ago. It seemed even better than I remember. I had the Bigole Arrabiata. It was delicious. I told the waiter I wanted it spicy and that I was famished . . . so when he... More

This is our favorite restaurant in Tacoma, because we have never been disappointed with our meal. The food is always delicious and it's a reasonable price (not expensive, but not cheap). This is where we go for a special meal (anniversaries, birthdays, etc.) because we can always count on a delicious meal. I do wish that they would serve the... More

Wonderfully charming inside and out. Greeted by a friendly host and seated immediately with reservation. I was alone and they didn't sit me at some card table near the exit. Thank you. Served incredibly fresh bread with good quality EVOO at the table. The menu is a treasure chest of great food and drink. I love this menu: Spaghetti, pappardelle,... More

A local favorite for decades, the food and flavor at Marzano keeps us coming back. With many business lunches and dinners here, I've had the opportunity to try just about everything on the menu. I love the authentic flavor and attention to detail at Marzano's. Food has always come out hot and accurate, and whether it's pizza, a salad, or... More

We had been going to Marzano's once in awhile for special occasions, generally with very good experiences. However, this will probably no longer be the case. My wife had reserved a window table for my birthday. Unfortunately, the table was given away just before we got there to a loud obnoxious couple. Yielding to loud squeaky wheels always bothers me....

We have eaten at Marzano's several times over the last few years. It seems to me that the food just keeps getting better. We went there about 2 weeks ago with friends. I truly felt it was one of the best meals I have ever had. My wife and I had the Chicken Scaloppini. Our friends had the scallops and... More
