Still Great Pizza and Less Grouchy Attitude This Time

When I last reviewed Marra's 3 years ago, I praised the food but criticized the grumpiness of the owners and managers. I suggested a charm transplant for the place. Two nights ago and in numerous visits over the last 3 years, the food was still top notch but, as they pronounce it in South Philly... read more

We've been going to Marra's for more than 20 years and the food is always great. It's a 30 plus minute ride, but well worth it. Sometimes the service isn't perfect, but the food more than makes up for it. Their pizza is awesome - probably our all time favorite. Four of us shared pizza, pasta Bolognese, and scungilli salad....

The pizza is good. We decided to try a different kind of pizza we wouldn't get at home. Tried a.white pizza with Prosciutto, artichokes, sun dried tomatoes and mushrooms. Very good. The crust was excellent. Mushrooms are canned which I could do without. Wanted a low key meal late on Sunday. Picked this for reasonable italian in the Passyunk area.... More

For a pre Mother's Day dinner, I treated a very inspiring woman to dinner at Marra's. I haven't been there since the early 90's and hoped it would be the same. It was average and if I wanted to complain it would be that I asked the server if anything comes with the Mother's Day entrees and she told me... More

I have beeen here plenty of times. It is the place you go with family or friends for an old fashioned red grave Italian dinner. See my pics of the food we had. Salad is included with dinner and a side of pasta!

Located next to rows of Italian restaurants, this place had great service but average food. Nice environment, rustic with giving of an"old neighborhood" feel. Prices were decent and portions good though.

I had a nice meal for my father's birthday celebration with the 10 of us. If you go during the week and early enough there is a sunset menu. I had the flounder franchias which was good. My kids enjoyed the pizza until they found a tomato slice under the cheese (they're kids they only like the sauce and ketchup...even... More

We go to Marra's several times a year. The host is always friendly and accommodating. The waitresses can be a bit curt at times. But, we usually get appetizers (fried calamari is delish), and pizza. Hard to mess that up. The brick oven pizza is so good, the sauce is amazing. The place could use some updating, but for me,... More
