We keep coming back to Marzano. Everything about it from the room to the service to the food is great. My only issue is that the pizzas are so good I have hard time not ordering one every time I go!

Had the Rotolo and I have to say it was excellent. My favourite used to be the Anglotti and I was a bit sad when they took it off the menu but I have found my new favourite the Rotolo.

The server was fantastic, suggesting drinks and food options. Their drink called the Bohemian is so delicious with jalapeño infused tequila, and food was outstanding. Great atmosphere as well!

Me and my family have eaten at Marzano several times and have never been disappointed.

The pizza is outstanding and the service was excellent.

We like the atmosphere there and the value for food and drinks.

Marzano is hands down the best restaurant in Nelson. Everything from the decor to the servers is top notch and best of all (the reason why we all go to restaurants) is the food. Absolutely delicious! Personal recommendation: try the beef stiletto. We ate there on New Year's Eve (before the power went out in Nelson). We have eaten there several times for breakfast,lunch and dinner and have been totally impressed every time. The servers are unfailingly good natured and accommodating and the food consistently wonderful in quality and presentation.

Pizza is outstanding...pretty much the only reason I go. The squid appetizer was well prepared and tender.

My nieces had the spaghetti and meat balls...the sauce was pale and the entire dish lacked seasoning. Quite frankly the word I would use is abysmal.

Service is excellent and the mocktails outstanding but not consistently prepared

All good... there was a big dinner party in the adjacent room and it was very loud. I am not quite sure why they did not close the beautiful doors that they have for that room. My pizza was excellent but my wife’s pasta was just OK. It was one of those overly creative dishes that ended up being a miss.

Meatballs are a must try at all Italian rest, they were poor. I ordered the fungi pizza, it had kale on it....destroyed a perfectly good pizza. Server changed part through, bill was messed up. They forgot to add a couple of drinks onto the bill and flagged the payee down as about to leave. Ambiance of restaurant is great, cocktails/drinks and BC wine selection great and reasonably priced. Maybe it was just post Shambhala service meltdown. I would still go back, but order selectively.

Squid starter was the best we’ve ever had—tender steak strips, charred lightly, divine sauce! Pizza crust was thin and flavorful. Server on the patio was on the ball and very pleasant. Wine was pricey, but good selection. We enjoyed our bottle of Burrowing Owl Sav Blanc. We shall return!

We loved our experience at Marzano! We have two children under the age of 5 and our server was so good with them, providing them with some pizza dough to play with while we waited for our food. (There is even a kids' menu!) The food is outstanding, the restaurant is beautiful, and it was just such a treat to eat here. We will definitely be back.

We were really disappointed. Ordered the “featured wine” when something different arrived she explained that they were out of the featured but that we’d like this one. Well of course it was considerably more. Food was cold and small portions. There are some wonderful restaurant in Nelson. This isn’t one of them and we wont be back

My boyfriend and I had dinner there on Saturday night. We got one of the spots on their new patio. It was incredible. The patio is the nicest one in Nelson for sure. From the moment we sat down, everything was perfect. The food was delicious and so fresh, the drinks were great and service was wonderful. I would highly recommend the jalapeño, tequila gimlet. . I can’t say enough good things about our experience!

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.
