Always Yummy!

You usually must have a reservation as this place is busy. The food has always been terrific whether going for lunch or dinner. The staff is friendly, attentive and very helpful when asking questions about the dishes. It is a place we often return to and recommend to others.

As I was returning home to Whidbey Island from Oregon (about 250 miles one way), I decided to stop for dinner and wanted Italian food from a restaurant that was not a chain. I hit my GPS and found Marzano so decided to try it. I did not have a reservation, was dressed very casual (t-shirt & black jeans) and... More

Wonderful little restaurant next to PLU. I'd read good reviews so were happy to be able to get a reservation. Four of us tried a selection of salads & entrees, from spaghetti & chicken pesto to Boscaiola & duck & we each raved about our choices. Portions were large so unfortunately we didn't have room for dessert. Good service as... More

Great Italian food with gluten free options other than a pizza or chicken breast and salads!! We've been patrons for over ten years and will always return!

This restaurant serves wonderful Old World Cuisine. The restaurant is small and intimate and the service is excellent. Make reservations! For excellent cuisine, masterfully prepared, wonderful service and a rich ambience, Marzano's is an amazing choice.

Just last year, our company president and program manager were in town for a visit. A co-worker recommended Marzano's and it turned out to be a winner. Everyone was very pleased with the meals, service and atmosphere. I had a pasta dish that was just Italian. I say that because some restaurants advertising Italian dishes don't really taste Italian.

Excellent food! Very nice atmosphere. I've been here for wedding rehearsal dinners, family dinners and dates with my husband. Everytime it's been excellent.

Marzano's restaurant is the best Italian food to be had between here and Rome. The menu is varied, the food is delicious and you might even be greeted by the owner herself. Take the time to visit Marzano's....don't let the location fool you.

After multiple visits at both lunch & dinner our families dinning experience has been unparalleled. Elisa Marzano's balance of ambiance, attention by staff & excellent food preparation & presentation has been revelatory. They have set a standard that continues to be very difficult to match and for my money, impossible to beat..
