Had lunch with family at Marzano's when dropping off our son to PLU. The place is very nice and comfortable, service is attentive and efficient. We found the food from appetizers to dessert very high quality, well presented and made with fresh ingredients. Excellent wine selection too. Will come back when in town!

I was looking for a nice spot for dinner in Tacoma after a visit to the Glass Museum with some out of town friends and selected Marzano after some research on-line. One of my friends is vegetarian and Marzano's menu had a couple of good-looking options. The restaurant is right next to Pacific Lutheran, has some parking out back, and... More

We had a great experience at Marzano's! The menu is varied and offers original takes on familiar favorites. Everyone in our party loved their choice. The homemade pasta was perfect. The restaurant is styled after a cozy home, so the atmosphere is warm and intimate. The excellent service was attentive and not intrusive.

Our visit was very enjoyable, the food was fantastic, and the service was excellent. And they actually got the homemade pasta right! Delicate and no too doughy. I'll take the cozy, warm dining room over a fancy corporate dining room any time. All this at half what you would normally spend at the typical high end restaurant. Cant wait to... More

We met with friends at Marzano's. It's set in what appears to be a repurposed house, so it was pretty crowded. The place was chockablock with people, yet our service was relatively quick, and professional. I had the special, the lamb. It was perfectly cooked. My husband had the linguini al mare. He was disconcerted to find it was mostly... More

This is one of the best Italian restaurants I have ever eaten at and certainly the best in the Pacific North West. I went for Lunch and the food was phenomenal and fairly priced, a great value. The wait staff was very responsive and really contributed well to the overall experience. Very friendly and attentive. The restaurant itself can be... More

We have been going to this restaurant for over 20 years. All special days - birthdays, anniversaries are spent here. Elisa, Brian and the crew do a great job and the food is always excellent. Can't wait to go back - my mouth is watering. Reservations recommended. Outdoor seating on good weather days.

My appetizer was a fabulous mushroom brie bruschetta on a base of delicious bread toasted with the perfect crunch of olive oil and topped with melting cheese, strips of mushroom, delicious bacon cut pancetta style and topped with a gorgeous balsamic reduction. It was TRULY the perfect bite....and came with four more that started our 39th Anniversary Dinner off to... More

I have been patronizing Marzano since it opened years ago. There has never been a bad experience. The staff are always helpful, friendly and attentive and the food is outstanding. Just went again last night and had an astounding meal from the "specials" menu: wild boar lasagna with aromatics, crimini mushrooms, sautéed leeks and escarole with a gruyere béchamel. Dear... More

My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary with dinner at Marzano's. Actually, we love to go to Marzano's for any excuse, but in the warmer weather, they have outside seating so it is easier to get a reservation. You will need a reservation, too, as this is a popular restaurant. I had their calimari for an appetizer, and we... More
