Delicious and authentic Italian. We had salad pizza and dessert. The mixed greens were super fresh, imaginative and tasty. The chorizo pizza was super fresh, delicious and authentically thin with a crispy smoky crust. The tiramisu was unbelievable! So so good. Wine list was great with local treasures and international pairings. Service was excellent and you could tell the staff enjoyed working there and were well suited to their positions. HIGHLY recommend.

Food was wonderful - Very excited by the quality and variety on the menu! As a person with celiac it is my new favourite restaurant in the Kootenays - the quality of the food and the variety that is gluten free are unparalleled.

Our server was lovely, attentive and friendly.
The noise level was boisterous which took a moment to acclimatize to, as a party of two we found conversation difficult and our server quickly helped us turn our table so we were better able to have a conversation.

The interior is light and welcoming, very inviting.
Can’t wait to go back!
Welcome to Nelson Marzano 😊

Marzano is a great addition to the restaurant landscape in Nelson. The food is a nice mix of traditional (and delicious) Italian, as well as some nice modern twists. The ambiance is welcoming, spacious and clearly well-designed...and the servers I've had were all terrific and skilled.

The food was nice. Pizza a bit black and salad with cauliflower a bit overdressed. I had a reservation for quite awhile for a special occasion and when we walked in, the hostesses weren’t that friendly. Rushed and quickly took us to a table for 2 in the centre of the room. I am hard of hearing and told the waitress and asked if we could be moved. The answer was a firm no. Really?! I’ve had a reservation for quite awhile for a special evening and won’t be able to hear my partner. Nope. No effort made to correct this whatsoever. Waitress did her best and we had a friendly time with her but this wouldn’t be my choice for a special occasion. Just an everyday pizza meal out.

Ambiance was fine, and the staff attentive and knowledgeable relative to menu items. However prices were undeservedly high, and food quality was lacking. Adding an Italian name to a menu item does not indicate quality.

We really enjoyed dining at Marzano. However, a few comments about the pizzas: not enough artichokes on the pizza, not enough cheese on another pizza. Loved the thin crust. Pork chops were yummy and so was the chicken pasta.

Our service was incredible. I forgot to ask her name..... next time. We will be back

Was excited to finally go after I heard good things from several friends. Was told they had amazing pizza and they definitely did. Never had pizza like that before and it was amazing. Everyone had a great experience. Service was fantastic so I definitely had a good waitress. Definitely recommend. Will go again when I can afford it. Tad pricy but worth it for the food and environment.

This is our third time here. Service is still friendly and professional and it’s a great place to eat in. My wife’s dish of the lamb pappardelle looked and tasted great, I had the Albacore Tuna Romesco and the pasta was a bit undercooked in my view. It wouldn’t stop us from going back, but I wouldn’t have that dish again. Drinks and appetizers were great as usual.

why they have yet to realize that none of the pizzas are well balanced in flavour is confusing beyond belief. nothing is fully developed as far as food goes. i continue to wish that they put as much thought into the food as they did the gorgeous decor. aside from that the service was impeccable and as always the wine was amazing.

We were visiting Nelson for the first time, and it happened to be New Year’s Eve when we ate here. Despite the fact that it was busy on a lively evening, they did a great job providing a high level of service, and fantastic food as well. I definitely recommend if you’re in the area!

Delicious we were with a chef who’d been to Italy recently and he thought it was very authentic. He had no complaints loved everything.
We were happy to see the menu had expanded to more pasta dishes although tough not to order pizza cause it’s just so good.
Love the decor and friendly staff.

This pizza was the closest I’ve had to Italian pizza since being in Italy. The only complaint is that they put too much cheese which makes it very oily and hard to eat since the crust is so flimsy and the toppings fall off. But still very tasty. The gnocchi is literally the best thing I’ve ever eaten in my entire life and I would get it again and again. The cocktails are also awesome.

A group of 5 of us went to Marzano's on a Wed. evening. I booked through Open Table and later edited my reservation from 4 to 5 people. The folks at the restaurant seemed confused by this., but in the end it was fine. People in the group enjoyed their generously sized appetizers, especially the squid and burrata salad. Meals were well prepared and everyone enjoyed their choices. The servers were polite and seemed to be doing their best but they seemed to lack training and experience.
