The atmosphere was wonderful, service was great. The menu is diverse, and offers plenty of options. We were a party of 7 and all ordered different items. All came out better than expected and tasting great. Desserts were very good as well. We arrived an hour before closing time and yet were not rushed at all.

My husband and I went on a Friday evening with reservations around 6:30. It was nearly full, which is great to see. We really enjoyed our meals. We both ordered pasta dishes, mine was farfalle al diavolo, his was baked ziti. The farfalle was delicious, though it was not "spicy" as described, and there was an obscene amount of food... More

We enjoy afternoon visits to Marzano's. We enjoy the woodfire Neopolitan pizza's and cheap drinks during happy hour, from 3-6 pm on weekdays. $1.00 bottles of Miller Lite on Thursdays, how can you go wrong?

The service staff was unresponsive and often absent and the pizza was a ceramic tile with sauce on it !!! Overall a negative experience !!! Very disappointed since I had much higher expectations !!! Not a Neapolitan Pizza at all !!!
