    My husband and I ate dinner here on November 21, 2022. It was our first visit but not our last. Our server, Miguel, was wonderful. It was my birthday and Miguel took great care of me. Our food and drinks were delicious. Thank you for a lovely dining experience.

    We had not been to Osteria Marzano for several years and I’m very glad we came back! Everything was excellent!! Our server was delightful and very helpful and our meals were delicious! I had a ravioli special with hose made pasta, filled with eggplant and sheep cheese topped with a wonderful tomato sauce and a bit of mozzarella. 2 of the others in our party had the Pasta Chitarra with shrimp, and the other had pasta with a Parmesan cream sauce. Their portions are generous and all meals were served piping hot. We will be back!

    As usual we were greeted warmly snd seated promptly. Since we ate early on a Monday we had empty tables on both sides until shortly before we left ( around 7 pm). The fish special was beautiful and I envied my friend! My ravioli special was fine but a little too much of the same flavor. Our server, Rodrigo, was helpful on the wine and the specials and just the right amount of attentive.

    We usually love Osteria Marzano. But, not this time. We attended one of their special wine pairing events. The meal included five courses accompanied by a different wine. The food was not particularly appealing. The portions seemed to be small. The wine was OK. It wasn't a good experience and we won't attend future wine events. We will go back for their regular menu which is very nice.

    Delightful as always. Seated back in the back room, they always remember me and my preference for the calm back room atmosphere while others prefer the lively bar. Chef Carmine visited the table with his delightful personality and smile always seeking honest feedback, a true professional and humble chef. Daou wine distributor representative brought some charming insights and details about the vintners. Oh so nice.

    We had a birthday dinner for 8 and our table was ready and staff has been briefed about our orders. Food taste was great however, the mussels we got were very tiny & thin. The rest of the orders were great. Our server explained they were short staffed so the delays in service was acceptable. We were told about the staffing issues so we were aware which was great to be informed. All our orders were tasty and everyone enjoyed the dinner.

    Great atmosphere. Had a wonderful dinner. The carbonara was ok but the risotto with zucchini, shrimp and scallops was amazing. Our teenage boys enjoyed their pizzas. The tiramisu, crème brûlée and affogato were wonderful. Would definitely go back.

    My family and I had such an amazing experience, I had to review this place on both Google and Yelp too. Fantastic and beautiful dining restaurant that’s a hidden gem in the neighborhood. Extremely classy. The food was outstanding, from appetizers to entrees to desserts — everything was so satisfying and we all even had to take some home with us due to being so filled from appetizers. The highlight of our experience though was our server Keller. He’s very patient, accommodating, and extremely professional. He made us feel right at home and gave us a great first time experience there. What an awesome representation of the restaurant’s mission he is! We will definitely be returning and would love to dine with Keller again!!

    We had lived in the Springfield area three years and paid no attention to Osteria Marzano except to order an occasional pizza for delivery. No wonder. The restaurant is on the first floor of an office building in the middle of a large medical complex. It is hardly noticeable even when you pass it. But it is worth seeking out because the food is very good, the service more than adequate and an extensive wine list. The ambience is neither downscale nor too fancy, but comfortable. The noise level is a bit high since the bar and associated tvs dominate the space. The prices are reasonable, though the wine pour is a bit skimpy. Bottom line: Glad to locate Osteria Marzano and add it to our short list of favorite restaurants around Springfield.

    This was my 2nd time dining at Osteria Marzano. Overall I gave it a 3. The positive aspects was most of the staff was very helpful and friendly. Our appetizers and drinks were good. However, our entrees lacked flavor. This brings me to the reason I could only give a 3 rating. A manager asked how our entrees were but she never offered to replace them. For example, I ordered the pasta dish that is completed table side in cheese rind (can't recall the name). The dish was cold and it taste like cheese and liquor. My friends had similar issues. I'll return but I won't get the pasta.

    We've been going to Osteria for years. The food is fresh and well prepared. The menu changes frequently so each trip offers old favorites (like burrata) and new items like the seared tuna with an interesting spice that we had last night.

    Don’t sleep on this restaurant because of its location in Kingstowne. Really great Italian dishes made with love and care. Nothing is overseauced, salty, or unbalanced. This is becoming our go-to place for date-night because it has great food and drinks, ambiance is very nice for a couple to dine out, the dessert is fantastic, and it’s close to home. Definitely try this restaurant and then come back to try the other dishes! Last time, we had the lobster risotto, the burger, and calamari, this time we had the maltagliati, calamari, chicken parmigiana, and crème brûlée. Everything was great!
