If you want a wide variety of excellent pasta dishes you won't be disappointed here. I started coming to Marciano's when they opened in Burlington. Since then they moved to Wterdown but continued to offer quality food. The restaurant is small and busy. Wait staff...More

I have been here many times and the food is always excellent and the value is one of the best in Hamilton! I often have the pesto pasta with shrimp and chicken...so good.

Marciano's is a favorite. It's a little hole under the floor type place so seating is limited especially at peak times. The restaurant is simple and furnishings are traditional but the food is delicious. Salad and bread are complimentary with your entree. Food is hot,...More

Small little spot, downtwon, excellent service, pasta made fresh daily, full menu including pastas, pizza, veal and chicken dishes. Very busy spot, opens at 5, be prepared to line up on Friday and Sturday nights, but so worth the weight. Reasonable priced, good wine list....More

The inside of the restaurant is plain, but the food is great. Fresh made pastas and sauces. The starter salad is really good! My brother lives in Florida and every time he visits, Marciano's is the first place he wants to go to!

Basement restaurant with entrance at the rear of 5 Mill Street in Waterdown, Ontario, which is now a part of Hamilton. This is a small restaurant that has approximately a dozen tables and is usually full for dinner service only. Quaint, subdued atmosphere but don't let that fool you.What is saved on decor is spent on fresh ingredients to make delicious Italian food. The Veal Iataliano is to die for, stuffed with sausage and coverd in a delicious wild mushroom sauce. The Chicken Pecan with a Baileys cream sauce is equally delicious. Accompanied by a sde of spaghetti and a light tangy Ceasar salad. Writting this review makes me want to book reservations now. This is recommended as the restaurant is small and gets quite busy. Bellissimo.
