Went specifically for the Gluten Free pizza (which was amazing as always). We called ahead earlier in the day to have them reserve one of the GF doughs for us b/c they often run out on a busy Friday, which was a good call b/c they had run out by the time we arrived for our reservation at 6:15pm, but had saved us one!

Love the ambiance—we specifically requested a booth (which was lovely) b/c we'd sat at one of the round tables near the pizza station before and felt a bit cold/exposed there. This time was perfect.

Marzano’s came recommended ...pizza was only warm when served and bland...other meal was spaghetti and meatballs...hardly any sauce which was bland as were the meatballs...can’t recommend after our experience.

We were able to create our own meal by ordering sides and blending them together- this suited both my wife and myself. The squid appetizer was delicious and everything was reasonably priced. Great way to celebrate our 435th anniversary !!

I've been to New York several times and to Italy at least three times. I was in Naples last year. I've had pizza everywhere and the pizza I had at Marzano was as good if not better than anything I've ever had. And my starter, the grilled calamari with deep-fried croutons, was incredible. Totally original presentation with unique flavours and textures. The restaurant has a modern and high-end Manhattan feel to it. Service was attentive. I highly recommend.

We felt safe in the restaurant with servers wearing masks and seeing them disinfecting surfaces. Food good, well presented.
Wish that North American servers would adopt the European custom of NOT asking customers how the food is! We come to your restaurant because we know it is good.

My friend and I had a Delicious time sitting on the patio. Sunny skies then protected by rain with big umbrella. The Duck pizza is outrageously good. Paired with a bottle of red. Rotolo a pasta stuffed with mushrooms and other yummy things was our appetizer. And they had some sort of dark chocolate and a bit of ice cream dessert. We split all this in joyous delight (might have been the red wine). We keep coming back and getting that pizza. Highly recommend for food and ambiance!

My husband and I were staying in Nelson for a short getaway from the Okanagan. There are plenty of very nice places to eat in this beautiful town and I am very glad we chose to have our "fancy" dinner here.
Firstly, the restaurant is soooo beautiful, inside and out. On my reservation I had asked if we could be seated at a booth and they happily obliged by having one ready for us on arrival!
I had a classic Aperol Spritz cocktail that was very yummy, reminded me of being in Rome. To eat we started with the marinated olives that are in house made as per our server and very delicious. We then shared the meatballs and the starter size gnocchi - both very good but both were in tomato-based sauces that we overlooked so it was a bit much, no big deal though. The meatballs were very tender and the gnocchi soft with the right bounce back mouth-feel. We also shared the duck pizza that my husband and I enjoyed half of later that night because we became so full after starters and drinks.
The service was great, not too doting which I enjoy. Very polite and gave us space, picked up dishes when they were cleared and delivered drinks and food in timely fashion.
Thank you for a wonderful experience at your restaurant and all the best to you!

When you make a reservation and then find out there are not potatoes left to make hashbrowns with at 10 a.m. it is cause for a very frustrating culinary experience. And then when you get served and have to wait 10 minutes for a coffee refill, and it isn't even busy, and you have to get up and find your waitress, it would really add to the frustration. I wouldn't come back.

Four of us for dinner. Share two most as and two pizzas. Pastas were phenomenal and pizzas were ok. Gluten free crust was a little overcooked. Restaurant is modern and gorgeous inside. Outside patio as well. Wine list is ok with some Okanagan options, which is good. Server was new so had a hard time recommending wine and seemed a little confused at times, but overall good experience.

Starters were very good. I read reviews about pizza being very good but we did not try. We had the pasta dishes which were fine but not really anything special (crispy chicken thighs and spag and meatballs). Desert was a little disappointing- not as described but good nonetheless.

We were greeted immediately upon entry and shown to our table. We preferred another table (a booth) and we were immediately granted our wish! Immediately after we settled our helpful server promptly took drink orders, which were served swiftly. We relaxed and enjoyed the ambiance of this newish, open concept Italian restaurant in Nelson. With a few questions effectively answered we ordered our dishes. This evening the restaurant was 2/3rss full so our food came out quickly. Everything was delicious. Overall a very good experience. We will go back there!
