As others have said, food is consistently pretty good. I would agree with the reviewer who commented about the garlic. They do use a bit too much, but it's easy enough to put to the side of your plate.

The bread that they place on the
table is not an appetizer. It is bread, albeit good! What restaurant doesn't serve bread? It's also odd that if you decide to order takeout, they charge you for that same bread! Makes no sense & is actually irritating to me :-(

Overall, good food & service.

Do NOT go here if you are looking for a fancy restaurant setting, but DO go here if you want great food at reasonable prices in a pizzeria/restaurant type setting. They do offer a good deal of outdoor seating when the weather permits.

They provide a free appetizer of some of their tasty bread and a dipping sauce so we don't usually order a separate appetizer. They do have a beer and wine license so I usually order a glass of Merlot or Chianti, while my wife goes for a Pinot Grigio. Just house wines, nothing special, but eminently drinkable.

Some of our favorites include: Marra's Chopped Salad containing grilled chicken, grilled peppers, artichoke hearts, prosciutto, fresh mozzarella, olive oil, balsamic vinegar. Soo good.
I prefer the Sesame Crusted Ahi Tuna salad over baby greens with Asian dressing. Both are quite large, so unless you are quite hungry, be prepared to bring some home. I can actually say that about just about all of the entrees here. Large portions. You definitely get your money's worth.

They also offer take out and pizzas, and they even have an email list where they offer weekly specials. You can't go wrong if you are in the mood for a simple, great tasting, inexpensive meal.

Just because it's Italian, doesn't mean it needs a lot of garlic. I have eaten there 3 times just to give them the benefit of the doubt, but I cannot handle the garlic which overpowers their meals. Sorry- they have a nice menu and I like their outdoor service in the summer, but too much garlic for this italian.

Rode bikes from marina to pick up a quick dinner. Nice outdoor patio. Caesar salad wasn't much to write home about, but the wood fire pizza (margarita) was excellent. Great crust, authentic ingredients. Had leftovers for lunch. All good.

Italian food! The food here is excellent! They have indoor and outdoor seating depending on the weather This place is right in the town center and walking distance from a large parking garage. They get very busy on weekends so go early!
