“Good food, not amazing”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

Food is good, but not great, prices are just about reasonable, and it's a pleasant chilled out space. You also can't smoke in the restaurant which is great.
It's worth a visit if you want a change from Indonesian food.

“Nice pizza, Unacceptable stare”
Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

I went here last couple of days to order pizza to take away. On my way to walk in to the restaurant, one of the waitress look at me like I have 3 legs and 2 head. was not friendly at all. Anyway I ignored it, I walked straight to the cashier and order 3 pizza to deliv. The cashier girl was so friendly and helpfull, more than happy to explain about the food and give u advice what to order and what don't. Excellent. I had to wait a lil bit to pay as there is another customer who need some help. I was okay waiting. Unbelievable, when I look around. That one waitress who gave me a strange stare when I came un. God, she is still looking at me. Feels uncomfy. I was wearing normal woman clothes and I dont think there is something wrong with me. I'm trying to ignore it as the pizza when it finally arrived in my place, was absolutely delicious. Deffinetly will be back again. But just a lil advice, that one waitress need to learn how to smile and be friendly not giving a devil stare. as that's what they paid for. The security was so helpfull and friendly tho.

“Delizioso”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Just had a lovely meal of pasta and pizza. Coming from Italian background,my fiancé and I have high expectations for this cuisine. The atmosphere was lovely and the staff are very prompt and attentive. The food is very similar to how my mum cooks. We will be going back.
Grazie Mille. Emma

“Gone downhill”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

The pizza is still excellent but that is all I can say in praise of this once excellent restaurant.
The wine prices have gone up but the glass is now only half full.
The soup portions vary but are only about half of their original size.
The service is not as friendly and the staff are abrupt with diners.
There is no obvious front of house personnel.

Cafe Marzano Legian seems more than content to rest on its laurels and rake in the rupiah from the high season guests without delivering as it used to oh so well.

And did I mention that the wifi no longer works? xxxx

Dear BouBali,

Thank you very much to write in and for your numerous visit to our little small cafe. It seems you really enjoyed our foods with your numerous visit even you wrote few unhappy reviews until now. We really appreciate it so much, anyway.

We learned so well that we can't make everybody happy but we really grateful that we have many friendly customer as our regular customers until today.

Our wine by glass is 150-160 ml / glass and its more than half glass. Our wine price never change until now.

We never change less any portion for all our foods and compare with other restaurant, we have big portion for most of our foods. Instead of it, we put more size portion in every portion this year.

I believe that our price is reasonable enough in this global economy change in Indonesia.

We never mention that we have free wifi but we always give wifi password to all our customers upon their requested. In fact, I wrote this respond in Cafe Marzano area and using the wifi. Its working really well this time. Perhaps the connection was not working well the period you were here as its happen sometimes in Indonesia, slow connection or sometimes no connection from the central or sometimes no electric. I am sure you had some other experience about bad connection wifi in other places or restaurant in Indonesia or Bali, also.

Overall, we will conduct to all our team to meet your satisfactions.

We apologizes that we didn't your satisfaction.

Saluti,
Cafe Marzano
