Nice ambience. Solid food. Service was good. I would recommend if you're in the neighborhood. It's a local restaurant and we hope it stays around!

Everything was great! My family and I had a good time and for the first time in a long time my mother(a very picky eater) genuinely enjoyed her meal

We ate outside, so noise wasn’t an issue. The food was great but the service was a little slow. I think the service was slow because of short staffing. Other then that, I love this place and I’m happen they are thriving in our neighbourhood.

The maitre'd staff seemed very young and inexperienced. There were 10 tables against a wall, #1 and #3 we occupied, and they wanted to seat us at #2 with all the other tables empty. We asked for a different table and were told they were all reserved. So they sat us at #4. They attempted to seat the next two couples at #2,and they also asked to be moved. Except for those other two couples, the rest of the tables remained empty. A hostess of sorts (we assumed, she did definitely work there) watched TV or her phone until two men came in and she devoted her time and attention to them at the bar. Those were the only two customers she interacted with. It was a shame, because the food was excellent. We felt we were being played.

The food was delicious. Perfectly cooked veal parmigiana and grilled salmon. The zucchini chips were the best we were in the back glassed I room and it reverberated with the noise level.

A favorite of mine. The meal, from appetizers through dessert, was delicious. Service was attentive. The only “flaw” is that we were tempted to eat too much! Love it!

A great experience! Excellent salads for all 3 of us and a friend had recommened the individual pizzas and there were several choices. We each got different individual signature pizzazs and all were great. The wine choices went well with the food and the wait staff were knowledgable and attentive. Highly recommend this restaurant!

The food was phenomenal but the service had some hiccups. We asked for the check and then it sat there for at least 20 minutes without being picked up. Our waitress had disappeared. After waiting so long, we went up to the front to try to pay but both hostesses had disappeared. We stood there awkwardly and when they finally returned a few minutes later they had to go back into the kitchen to find our waitress to run our credit card so we could finally pay and leave. Not quite sure what happened there. Otherwise great meal until it was time to pay and leave.

This is the second time I have been to Osteria Marzano in the last month. Both times it took a very long time (probably more than 20 minutes) for us to get our drinks after they were ordered. Something is wrong, could be staffing, could be capacity, could be training issues, not sure.

Osteria is one of our favorite restaurants and this was our first time back inside.

My wife started with a glass of Prosecco and I had a primavera with grapefruit gin, lemonade and strawberries. Both were refreshing on a hot summer day.

We shared a special burrata appetizer with special prosciutto and black truffles.

My wife had the fish special with branzino since they were out of the halibut. I had a pasta special with rabbit. Both were excellent and more than we could eat.

We enjoyed a bottle of pinot grigio. Imported wine prices are up because of tariffs added a couple of years ago.

Our waitress, Natalie, was great. She explained the specials and was very personable.

Without a doubt, this was the best restaurant we’ve ever been to. Every single food item was exceptional and completely worth the price — we got appetizers, a salad, and a pasta dish. I cannot begin to explain how good each item was! They also celebrated our anniversary with such joy, and we felt so special. The space was quiet, intimate, and gorgeous. We cannot wait to come back for our next celebration and try more of the menu items!

We were at the medical building near by that evening. I made a reservation ahead of time to go try after the medical appointment. Pasta and Cioppino were delicious along with Italian wine. Sitting outside the terrace was also relaxing experience. I would go back again.

This restaurant was lovely. Other than being a bit on the chilly side inside (which I'm sure will be fine in the middle of the high heat of summer), it was a lovely experience. The food was phenomenal, the staff was attentive. Definitely will return for another visit. It has a very elegant yet open vibe. I see it as a location for both an outdoor more relaxed happy hour and an indoor, more sophisticated dinner for work or a date. Very enjoyable.

Beautiful place with exceptional service and reasonable pricing, unfortunately the quality of the food was just not there for wha I ordered. The veal was not hammered down quality meat but rather appeared to be a processed patty. Was very disappointing. I will say that due to the ambiance and service I may give them another try.
