Not particularly memorable. Average bread, great service, mediocre food at high prices. I ordered the baked ziti but was served plain ziti with mozzarella tossed on top and a big scoop of meat sauce on top of that. Sloppy presentation and nothing special. At $17 for the dish, I did expect something a little more carefully crafted. The crab bisque was excellent - wish I had just ate that.

My family and I dined here two years ago and it was half and half. Some of us enjoyed our food, but others did not. The food was over-priced for the quality and the portions you got, and the service was terrible. They do not do large groups well. We will NEVER return here! We actually dined outside of stone harbor last year just to avoid this place!

Marabella's is convenient, usually not crowded, and priced reasonably well. The food is OK. Nothing special. There are better Italian places in the area (Nino's is one), but like I said, the place is right in town...you can grab some ice cream at Springer's next door or do some shopping after your meal.
The place is real traditional, but sorta dated. The decor looks like nothing's been updated or improved for years. The menu looks old. Service was nice, and they give you a salad with dinner. The bread looked like something you'd get at the local Acme...real bland.
The restaurant was 2/3rds full at dinnertime in one of the busiest weeks of the summer, so maybe that's a sign.

Another fabulous meal at Marabella's!!! We brought our friends from Rehoboth Beach who haven't eaten here in years, and they were so impressed! The calamari was tender and light. The steamers were flavorful. The homemade dressing on the caesar salad rivals a 5 star restaurant. Three veal dishes and the special of Pasta Luciano were delicious. A great meal at a great price!
