“Always great service and excellent food”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Not sure what's up with some of the other reviewers not liking this place. Great ambience compared to the industrial feel of most chain joints these days. We have been going to Morola's for a number of years and have NEVER been disappointed. Maybe a little pricey but worth it for the atmosphere, the service, consistent quality and great garlic rolls. The Zuppa de Pesce is the best I have had anywhere in the U.S.

“Disgrace to a Real Italian”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

My husband & I both come from Italian families where the sauce is made from scratch...this was a disgrace our first visit orange colored sauce is the clue, it's canned, not made from Italian plum tomatoes, I had the Eggplant Parm and it was a mouthfull of breadcrumbs, nothing like other Italian Places where the Eggplant is shaved on a mandoline and baked from scratch this tasted like ON COR TV DINNER, the women who rave about this place don't know the difference and half of them don't cook period, dont' let the fancy wines and tablecloths fool you what a waste!

“Marola's Trattoria”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

There are many good Italian restaurants in West Broward. However, when it comes to delicious homemade pasta and "lick-your-fingers" garlic rolls, there is only one: Marola's in a strip mall in Cooper City. This family-owned place is always full and always delicious! One can order whole wheat pasta and combine dishes to your liking if desired.The specials are varied and outstanding but the fresh ingredients are the key to Marola's quality of food. A quality wine list is available and your waiter can assist in recommendations with your dinner. Do not miss the opportunity to visit this superb Italian restaurant!

“Better than most”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

When it comes to Italian restaurants there seem to be just about one each block in South Florida but unfortunately quality is absent in most places. Marola's Trattoria is an exception in that it has the home-made flavor one would expect from a family-run place. It's small but has a following in the neighborhood and I am fortunate to be a few miles away so we go there from time to time. Service is very good. It will take some time to get your food because there is no frozen stuff here, all is made to order.

“Regulars who love the place”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

We have brought many friends to this bistro and always enjoy both the food and atmosphere each time we visit. The service is always personable and we find the menu to always have food which well prepared and delicious. In fact, we have used their catering for get togethers at our home. We have favorite items but many times find the specials to have something which has never disappointed us. We dined here one New Years and had an outstanding holiday experience. Usually when we come, it is because we want to have a nice quiet and outstanding mean. We have always been grateful for the personal service and good food.

This is a great hide away for a intimate meal.
