We love the food here, and the service is excellent. Usually order off the specials menu or penne alla vodka.

The waiter seemed bothered the entire time. He tended to every table but we had to repeatedly ask for things and flag him down to gain his attention. The only difference between us and the other customers were that we were black.

OM was the perfect Friday night vibe for my small party of 8 girlfriends this weekend.
It has the warmth and integrity of service you’d expect from a family-run business. The staff worked as a team and took care of us. It was great to feel taken care of and simply focus on catching up and relaxing with friends.
My girlfriends raved about the food and were still sharing food pics the next day. The house made pastas and octopus were table favorites. The DJ played great music, which got a little louder later in the evening. This was my 4th time dining here in the past 5 years. I’ve enjoyed lunch, dinner on the patio, happy hour, and now a group dinner. If I lived closer I’d be a regular ( I live in Los Angeles). I highly recommend trying Osteria Marzano for business, family, or date night gathering. It’s the best in the area.

We loved eating in the globes outside, with the table fire pits! The only problem is we both ate the saffron risotto, and our stomachs became upset b/c of the saffron. We researched it after we became slightly ill, and realized we must be sensitive to saffron.

We had a wonderful experience. Outdoor patio provided perfect social distancing. The fire in the bubble make everything nice and warm. Both got the pizza, couldn’t finish ( was just a lot, great for leftovers )

Customer service was subpar! We had a reservation for 7pm, but we were not seated until 7:25pm- we had to stand and wait for 25 minutes in the building's lobby. Once seated- we were placed in a damaged pod with cold air blowing through, the wait staff was slow (we sat for 10 minutes before anyone came to the table) and the fire on the table went out twice. The concept of the outdoor igloo dining is cool, but the execution and service needs improvement! As far as the food and drinks, everything that we ordered was good. *Note; there was no gratis or complementary anything on the bill for any of the inconvenience and discomfort.........I didn't ask, nor should I had to! Disappointing and disappointed!

We requested one of the outdoor “bubbles” through open table, and the two of us were seated in a outdoor bubble table.
Very clean, very safe. All the rest made for a delightful experience for us, who have avoided any indoor seating.
Will definitely do again!

Great food with a nice wine selection and friendly service and ample parking. Outside seating area has no traffic driving by to disturb your meal. They take covid seriously and go to great expense to keep tables clean. Haven't used their heated outdoor seating bubbles for winter dining, but they look like a lot of fun. This was our second trip here and it won't be our last. Highly recommend Osteria Marzano.

Food was great hands down. The bubble outside is wonderful and very pleasant. My downfall was that at one point the fire turned off and we sat in the cold for about 20 minutes, maybe more, even after we asked the waitress to turn it back on. I understand there’s a process to have it completely cold before turning it on again but it wasn’t fun shivering. Or maybe they were speeding up the process to have us out because I heard them say that while we waited for our table when we arrived. But I’m not sure. I heard a waitress be rude to another gentleman in the restaurant but I realized that a few of the employees there had an attitude with their guests. I don’t think I will be back but the bubble is a cute idea.

Service was friendly and attentive. Wine list had several interesting options. Mussels were just okay but the calamari appetizer was great. Of the three pasta dishes we tried the penne ala vodka was the winner. Portion sizes are large so we skipped dessert. Wish we had booked farther in advance to try one of the outdoor dome dining options.

We’ve made the reservation for certain time, arrived 3 min early and had to wait for more than 15 min to have the table ready. Then had to wait for the waitress to come over for another 15 min! And it was outside, in November... the food was ok.

We’ve been supporting Chef mostly with takeout during the pandemic. The food has continued to be great. Today, we sat outside — one of the last warm fall days — and had a lovely birthday celebration within our family pod. The restaurant has opened one bubble table for dining and the staff say there are more that will be brought out as the weather cools. Come out and enjoy!
