BEST ITALIAN IN TOWN!

Make your reservation early as Marzano's fills up fast. Known for their excellent cuisine, people come from far and near just to dine here.

We celebrated my wife's birthday with our daughter who eats gluten free. She was surprised and excited for the many GF items on the menu. She had an amazing dinner as did my wife and myself. The mozzarella app was wonderful as was the prosciutto. The wine they picked was wonderful and went great with my pork - they lived... More

Been going here for over 20 years, still hands down the best food in area. Too bad, From the Bayou isn't still next door.

My girlfriend and I went here tonight and we were satisfied but not for the price. We spent $77 with gratuity for 2 main entrées, a glass of wine and a beer. The restaurant itself looks to be a residence turned into a restaurant which is unique in that sense. I would recommend the restaurant if you are willing to... More

Great date spot for a relaxed and unhurried dinner. Classy atmosphere and service, food is excellent. Top ranked restaurant in Tacoma for a reason.

So I'm kind of a foodie and my husband and I are tough critics. We have been here many times over and would highly recommend it to everyone. It is tucked away near a small college and has an intimate feel to it. Perfect for date night. I recommend making reservations as it is a small converted home with limited... More

We have been going here for years. Very romantic, cozy and friendly. Air conditioned with lovely patio seating. This food has been the best kept secret and trumps anything in Seattle. Great wine selection, locally sourced food. The menu continues to rotate with seasonal delights. Nice for adult time only.

This resturant is two miles from my house, and we have never been dispointed for lunch or dinner! On Garfield St. a half block for Pacific Lutheran University so always make reservation for dinner as a popular place to dine! Nice variety of pasta and salads, nightly specials. Beer and wine served! Friendly staff, old converted house, outside seating, weather... More

In the Tacoma area, when I think of fine dining, I think of Stanley and Seafort's and Marzano's. While the physical establishments are very different, the food is similarly impressive. I've never had a bad meal at Marzano's. Until I had to go gluten-free, I adored their pasta, especially the ravioli. Even now, eating gluten-free, I can always find something... More
