I haven't been there in a long time but the food and service was still good. The personal calzone was tasty and more than enough for one person.

Very accommodating waite staff. Group of five could not make up our minds if we wanted the pizza (what they're known for) after hearing the evenings specials. So we ordered a "personal size" Quattro Gusti" as an appetizer. Outstanding choice!!!!! So much so, we would go back just for the brick oven pizza. One order of Linguini Aglio with extra... More

I had not been at Marra's for many years and decided to give it a try. The food was really much better than expected and very good. The spaghetti and lump crab in white wine sauce was one of the best I've ever had, and the personal size Margherita pizza was also quite good. The spaghetti dish was really enough... More

People who remember the good old days seem to like this place. Unfortunately I am relatively new. Two visits produced similar results. The good: Lots of choices. Moderate prices. The not so good: The place is old and dated. No attempt to update anything. The servers were perfunctory. If I said "Thank you." The server said "You're welcome." No smile.... More

Heard great things about this restaurant but I was disappointed. I has the mussels in white sauce. It was so very bland, I added the tomatoes and garlic from my bruscetta and some red pepper flakes that were on the table. It made it palatable. My friends had pasta with the red sauce and they didn't care for it. Again,... More

Went there immediately after a Sunday afternoon Phillies game. We got real, and I mean real lucky that a parking spot opened up right in front of the place as we approached. Not sure if it was an off night, but my family of 4 was seated immediately. I'm told the pizza is famous but I stuck to my appetite,... More

Came here for lunch and there were only two other tables filled on a rainy Saturday at Noon. Service was slow--had to ask for water and then waiter disappeared. Our table ordered a couple salads, soup, an entree and a personal pizza. Italian wedding soup and minestrone were tasty and well prepared. Salads got a thumbs up and so did... More

No matter what you order, if you're looking for real Italian food, you'll love it. From the veal parm to the pizza, it's all excellent. Best Antipasta on the avenue. Great for familes, great for a date. The wait staff is friendly and funny.
