We love this Renton gem of an authentic Italian restaurant. Tonight, we had the osso buco and spicy shrimp pasta specials; both were beyond delicious and perfectly cooked. Attentive, friendly waiter. Lively bar too due to Seahawks game; didn't bother us as restaurant is spacious. I cannot say enough good things about this place, which is on par with Il... More

On my way to the airport in Seattle returning to New York, we stopped at Marianna in Renton, WA (quiet, small unpretentious restaurant) which had been recommended to us. We enjoyed a terrific pasta dish with sausage. I wish we had had time to try more dishes on the menu. We had a very nice glass of Pinot Grigio Savian.... More

We frequently go to Marianna before a play at the Renton Civic Theater. We can count on the food to be delicious and wait staff to be friendly and efficient.

Thought i would try this place again. Friendly. Clean. Neighborhoody feel. Bolognesse was odd as it had cream in it...a lot. 12.95. Ordered 2 sides meatballs thinking i would have extra for latter. Not the case. 3 small two-bite meatballs fir 9.50 an order. Lol. What? They were ok...some bit overcooked..others moist. Bread was extra which I understand.

I have been here 6 or 7 times and they are reliably good. Friendly servers. This last time I had the veal and it was cooked in too much oil- my plate had a pool of it after I had eaten. But usually my meal is flavorful and well prepared. Good wine selection. Tables are spaced far enough apart you... More

We have dined at Marianna many times and have found the service staff very attentive and welcoming. We generally order a variety of entrees, most pasta based and have never been disappointed. It's a very comfortable setting, where you don't feel crammed in as in some restaurants. It's a nice place to have a good meal and good conversation.

We celebrated a birthday here and the staff was very accommodating. I've been there twice, once having a steak dinner special that was excellent, and the other time a pasta dish that was also excellent. Staff is very friendly and helpful, atmosphere inviting, not too loud. Two friends tried their pizza and gave it thumbs up.

Such amazing Italian food. Growing up eating my Italian grandmother's food...I am picking about eating at Italian restaurants. I have no problem eating here. The fettuccine pesto is amazing. The spaghetti bolognese is delicious. Their carbonara...OMG...can only be said. Do yourself a huge favor and get the meatball appetizer. The service is as amazing as the food!

we were a group of 20 with reservations. The food delivery was slow, bringing the bills even slower (an hour wait for the restaurant to sort out the checks

There were roughly 20 of us on a Tuesday night. We were all seated together, however with not enough water glasses, silverware, or plates. We were not once offered a beverage or an appetizer. We ordered our food and a starter salads. The salads never arrived. Our entrees trickled out so that as the first served were finishing, the last... More
