We have been coming here for years. Never have we found the level of passion in food than at Marzano's. The owner has gone over and above in meeting any special requests we have. She rotates the menu seasonally and uses only the best ingredients. We come here for our date nights. I find it really romantic. We had our... More

All entries come with a salad and bread. The salad was just spring greens and a house dressing. The bread wasn't warm, but was good. They had plates and olive oil, but no basalmic vinegar for dipping. Since the bread wasn't warm, the butter wouldn't spread. My husband's lasagna had good flavor, but it was a very small portion, especially... More

This place has really good Italian food and the service was exceptional. There are a few issues. First the ambiance leaves a bit to be desired as I felt crammed in with a lot of other people in a poorly designed multi room mess. There should absolutely be some sort of dress code as there were people in t-shirts and... More

Service = 5 Food = 5 Marzano's Restaurant's staff is a model of a high-functioning team! It was awe inspiring to watch the numerous staff members as they seamlessly took care of diners' needs. Interactions from our initial greeting to departure were authentically warm and polite. Courteous attention permeated our evening: dishes served promptly; plates efficiently cleared; leftovers boxed; and... More

You will not find better Italian food within hundreds of miles. This place is our fav and because prices are a bit high, it's one we ALWAYS go to for special occasions and celebrations. Great lunch place to gather with intimate friends, as it has an amazingly nice atmosphere. Just wish they'd move to a larger venue so it wouldn't... More

When I selected the restaurant, I didn't realize what a wonderful choice it would be. We were hungry for Italian so I found a restaurant with good reviews. We didn't have reservations. In hindsight, I would definitely have a reservation. The service was impeccable and was able to get us in. It's a quaint atmosphere. The food was far better... More

We hadn't been to Mariano's in many years. Wanted to try someplace closer to home. We had reservations and greeted right away and taken to our table. After ordering our food it was nicely timed. The food was excellent. We all had something different. The bus person kept our waters full and dishes removed when finished. The only issue we... More

I have been to Marzanos 4 times in 10 years. Everytime the food is great, customer service is great, and the atmosphere is romantic. I highly recommend Marzanos for a couples dinner. I have had the rissotto, piccatta and lasagna. Both were great. Price is reasonable for the quality of food you receive. $92 for dinner for 2, desert, and... More

Found on a business trip a few years ago and have been back every time we are in WA. Great for large groups. Always different items on the menu. No one has ever been disappointed.
