My wife and I have been going to Marzano's for years and it by far one of our favorite restaurants. The food is great and the Owner, Elisa, is always there to be of service to you. The atmosphere is great for a romantic dinner for two or a group of six.

Marzano's is simply one of these very memorable restaurants. Been going to the restaurant over the years, and each time I leave stuffed, but wanting more. The atmosphere is homey, busy, and eclectic. The service right on spot, attentive, professional, but never stuffy. The food? Amazingly good. Bacon I had the special on my last visit a bacon-apple risotto. I... More

Had a wonderful time at this restaurant. Food was amazing, just wish my wallet and stomach were bigger so I could try more dishes. Will definitely have to go back to try some other dishes! Best bruschetta ever, Crostini with pesto, drizzled with basalmico, tomatoes chopped and goat cheese on top! In a word, AMAZING!

I've been to this restaurant about 15 times for lunch and a couple for dinner- it is always consistently high quality, fresh ingredients, good service and tasty food! Their specials, especially their salad and pasta dishes are always worth ordering.

If you like Italian food you will find surprising meals in a surprising location at surprising price. The food is astonishing, from the opening appetizers to the non traditional meats added to the standard- but better - Italian pasta dishes to the great traditional meatballs (that can be side-ordered along with main courses). The setting may seem out-of-the-way: a side... More

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
