The restaurant is charming; housed in a building that was a house originally. The prices are good but it depends on your menu and wine selection. If you have something off the dinner menu and nice wine it is in the fine dining range.

I have been going to Marzanos for over twenty years and the food has always and consistently been excellent. The owner is always improving and adding new items and twists on classic Italian dishes. When I take guests and they ask me what's good I...More

Sometimes, it is challenging to have a delightful meal on a busy holiday evening. However, Marzano's came through again with wonderful ambience and leisurely dining on Valentine’s Day.
