This place is a little gem! Great service, AMAZING food! All fresh pasta dishes include a salad (garden or Caesar) and fresh bread. The portions are huge.

We have never been disappointed with the food quality and pasta selection. Always a great dinner! Veal marsala is a must (or any other pasta creations for that matter). If it's a casual pasta dinner you're after, we would definitely recommend. Get there early for...More

Located in the heart of Waterdown, Ontario, tucked away in a basement is Marciano's Pasta Cafe, the best little gem there is. Do not miss this place, next to an Italian restaurant in Italy, this is by far the one of the best Italian restaurants...More

My wife and I visited at 500pm on a Thursday night. We had reservations and had no trouble seating at that time of day but by the time we left they were nearly full. Reservations for two are accepted Tuesday-Thursday, the six-guest minimum is Friday-Sunday....More

Once again, the food was excellent, service was impeccable and evening was great! Pasta has always been perfectly cooked; Garlic bread and Bruschetta is the best anywhere!

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.
