I've never been to Italy, but this is the best Italian food I've ever had. The pasta dishes are served with full bodied sauces. The salads and starters are a must have. It's always busy so best to have a reservation.

This restaurant serves very tasty dishes. It is pricey and reservations are required, but for a special night out it is grand. The food is top of the group in Italian food.

Marzanos has been a respected restaurant since at least 1990 when we moved to Tacoma. It's in a pleasant craftsman style house, decorated to honor the kitchen's northern Italian roots. We have had many fine meals there and have always come away fully satisfied. My own favorite happens to be pasta boscaiola and their tiramisu.

As a "displaced Montanan" in Washington State for the past 20+ years,I have become the go-to tour guide for several out of state guests. There's the normal menu of Western Washington things to do, but if I'm looking for a nice place for dinner and impress my guests, Marzano's is it! Best Italian food ever. My wife, who suffers from...

I have been visiting Marzano's for years at lunch with an old high school friend. We stopped going almost a year ago because we felt we weren't getting our needs met by the server. Today we gave it another shot. The server was very attentive and we had a great experience. They changed their menu since the last time I... More

I was at an sporting event at PLU and was starving without much time. I placed a pickup order of Pork Belly, Prawn Ceasar Salad, and a gluten free Pomodora pizza for my daughters. ALL the dishes were amazing, delicious, and well prepared. It's a nicer establishment and we were in very casual clothing and were still treated kindly and... More

Intimate, in an old private house. Felt secluded despite proximity to hwy 7. Situated next to PLU university campus. Familiar feeling. Friendly and knowledgable wait staff. Jazz music. Outside seating. Tasty and fresh food. Alluva salad perfect, as was the Piccata chicken and the cheese pizza. Large portions, a bit too much food.

If you want absolutely wonderful Italian food, this is definitely the place. It's not really in Tacoma, but it is not far. Certainly worth the drive if you are in the area. Wonderful service.
