Marzanos is an Italian restraunt in Parkland, by PLU. We go there fairly often, for ourselves and to treat friends. I have never gotten a bad meal there. The food is amazing, and the service is outstanding! I highly recommend it! Reservations are a must, its very popular.

Love love this place. Sat outside (reservations a must) had bruschetta to start - yummy fresh best in town, followed with clams and then moved on to the spagatti and meatballs to die for. Nice wine list could be better - peach Bellini to start followed up with a Corliss second label... Staff friendly and knowledgeable. 5 star for sure

Dropped in for dinner. The service was quick and good, the wait staff very attentive. The food was just so-so. Spaghetti with little meat and with bland flavor, kinda like out of a can. Same with wife's chicken alfredo, just no spice to it. The prices are good, but better food would make it worth going back.

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
