Description: Landmark Italian restaurant established in 1951 offering traditional selections such as their famous chicken cacciatore and the best ever veal Parmesan dishes, along with steaks, chops, fresh seafood, and mouth watering pasta dishes, including house made gnocchi and Sunday Gravy. The ambiance transports diners to the rolling hills of the Tuscan countryside, and highlights a family style Farm Table for 14. The new full service bar offers specialty cocktails and a well designed wine list. A Private Dining Room for special celebrations and corporate functions has been newly renovated in 2016. Also offering Trays for home or office catering. Whether it's a first date or a casual dinner with the whole family, there is something for everyone!

“Delicious Italian Dining”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

My wife and I have become very fond of Alan Meinster's Marsilio's Kitchen in it's Ewing location, now that it has a full service bar. Alan is one of Trenton's culinary stars, and his restaurant does not disappoint, bringing consistently delicious food to your table every time. Shane the bartender is a pleasant, engaging young man who makes a great Manhattan - a nice start to a tasty dinner. I'm partial to veal when it's well prepared, and Marsilio's does it first rate. The Chicken Cacciatore has been a menu staple for many years, and is worthy of praise. When in doubt, you can choose the "I Can't Decide" menu options, which offer a smorgasbord of items, rather than a single dish. Be prepared to take some food home when you come here, because the portions are very generous. Marsilio's Kitchen is no secret around here, so make reservations before you go, or you may be disappointed when you don't get a seat!

“you won't be disappointed”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

This place was a wonderful discovery. I tried the pork for lunch and it was wonderful. It came with a salad which was great. The service was outstanding and I never had to ask for a thing. My wife had a chicken dish with artichokes and mushrooms with a light wine sauce. I would highly recommend Marsilios. Plenty of parking in the back of the building. I thought it was going to be expensive, but it is reasonably priced.

“Italian Limited Menue”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

Limited menu. A little pricey, Sausage appetizer was home made and very good. All main courses were very good. Went at 5:00 pm only reservation available very crowded after that. It is possible to take you own wine as we did for a small cork charge.

“Traditional Italian”
Reviewed June 22, 2014 via mobile

Since the addition of a full bar this is a wonderful trip back in time to the Trenton area's rich tradition of fine Italian fare. The chicken cacciatore made with red wine vinegar and no tomatoes is a favorite.
