48th anniversary dinner for 2 based on good rating. Blown away! Mussels with white cream sauce to start, seafood in sauce over squid ink (black) pasta, swordfish, 2 coffees and one dessert plus bottle of WA champagne for $104 + tip and tax. Sauces on the entrees and mussels were flavorful beyond description. Never had anything this good before including... More

Amazing. Had mussels to die for as an appetizer. Also, had burrata, beets, heirloom tomatoes and pesto. I can't explain how great it was. Also had the seafood pasta and boscaiola with wild mushrooms 10 out of 10. Favorite meal of all time.

Dined with friends for lunch. Offerings are a bit pricey. Hot sheet items were good. The butternut squash soup was very tasty. Thick, creamy and well seasoned. My house salad with balsamic house dressing was the best I've tasted lately garnished with thin slices of watermelon radish. Mahi on a luncheon salad had a NOSE to it. May have been... More

We ate here on our way back from a day at Mt Ranier. We found it online and were hoping for something a little different that the "chain" type of restaurant. What a wonderful suprise. The food was wonderful, the service was prompt and attentive and the atmosphere was very intimate and romantic. Loved it and will go back definately!... More

We took a detour off the hwy to visit this resturant while in route to Napa. We were not disappointed in the least. We depend on Trip Advisior reviews often and the ratings are spot on! The place is darling and decorated with eclectic Euro charm and has an impressive collection of Sid Dickens Tiles for me ( a Sid's... More

After living in the area for more than three years, I FINALLY made my way to Marzano's, and the restaurant did NOT disappoint! In fact, my first dining experience made SUCH an impact that I returned just over a week later for a second dinner that was EQUALLY enjoyable! The restaurant is totally unassuming, but elegant at the same time.... More

I reviewed Marzano's a few years ago, but felt compelled to re-review after visiting Marzano's last night. Everything was perfect or almost. The Caesar salad was "real" Caesar salad - i.e., not some bottled dressing on romaine - but it was drowning in dressing. The lasagna was excellent as was the papardelle bolognese (sp?). Oh, and also the cheese antipasto... More

The olive oil served here is outstanding. One of the treats in Europe is the bread and olive oil. Here, they do a good job of capturing this treasure, I addition to great pastas chicken, seafood and all the sauces that are available here. Food is very good and worth the trip. Recommend? Yes. Return? Yes.

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
