Marzano's is right next to the PLU campus. At first I thought it would be a college hangout, but I was happily wrong. This is a wonderful, romanitic Italian restaurant. The food was the best Italian I've ever had. I just wish it didn't take...More

I've been here 4-5 times now but have never reviewed. The food is fresh and delicious. The most authentic Italian you will get in Tacoma. I got the chicken piccata for $15 on the lunch menu. It comes with a salad and bread. The salad...More
