This restaurant has consistently served very good food throughout the years. We enjoyed the tomato sauce on the pasta.

My kids are gluten free and cow dairy free. They all enjoyed the gf pasta and sauce. They even customized a dish for me without onions and garlic. My wife had a regular menu pasta dish and said it was really good. Definitely worth going!

Had dinner at Marabella's in Stone Harbor last night. I had dish recommended by our waitress, penne pasta with broccoli rabe, Italian sausage, white beans in a light tomato sauce. My husband had veal saltimbuca over penne. Food was delicious. Restaurant is BYOB. Would highly recommend.

We have been coming to Stone Harbor for many years an have not been to Marabella's for quite some time since we had a poor experience there long ago. We returned last night and were somewhat more satisfied than last time. The food was ok but the service was a bit slow.

Family style dining. There are not many options this time of year and Marabella had good service and a very nice meal. BYOB. We enjoyed the flounder and lasagna dishes. The server was very pleasant and energetic.

This was my favorite dinner restaurant in Stone Harbor/Avalon in the 1970s, and it still is. It was so good, we ate there two nights in a row, even waiting for a table for an hour one night. What can I say: the staff are friendly, the service is excellent, the food is delicious. Homemade ravioli is pillowy and amazing.... More

Our family is very particular about our Italian food which is why I have said the food here is average. Several of the pastas were made on premise and the menu offers a lot of variety. The service was pretty efficient but very friendly and the place is busy as many are at the beach.

Food is neither great nor disappointing. Perfectly fine. Has the advantage of being open at a time of year when not many options are open except maybe Fred's. People are friendly and just fine...

Marabella always taste delicious! Food is great and reasonably priced. Service is excellent and timely. We highly recommend the fried provolone as an appetizer. So good!
