The place was full, even with the big "5 de Mayo" celebration few feet away. The young boy and girl that took care of out party of 18, were great, calm, smiling all the time, food came as ordered and "hot" and of good taste and quality/quantity. Great family atmosphere and yes, will go back. The only one without a... More

We've been dining at Merolas for the past 10 years because they are so consistent. A warm greeting by their amiable host, Guy sets the pace. Nice wine list and wonderful specials. Never rushed and always satisfied. Cheerful staff makes every meal a celebration.

We were there on a Saturday night with reservations that were honored on time. I do recommend reservations. Without them you will have a wait. The place is small and very noisy when all the tables are filled. The owner comes by, tells you the specials and takes your order. The other wait staff gives you drinks, bread and serves... More

Owner welcomes diners and supervises service - the best aspect of Marola's. The early menu offers soup and salad and dessert free with the price of the entree - a good deal. But the food is quite ordinary.

A cute mom and pop Italian restaurant with huge portions and every dish bursting with flavor! You can tell everything is made from scratch, in house. I really enjoyed the experience that the manager made for us. Just listening to him recite the specials was delightful. There were several desserts to choose from and all were delicious. I will definitely... More

The environment is quaint and homey. The staff is incredibly friendly, but the manager, Guy, is extremely knowledgeable and goes above and beyond to make your experience one to remember! The food is out of this world! I had the Chicken Bianco, which was incredible and coveres in mishrooms and artichoke hearts, as well as the penne in pesto sauce,... More

Yes. We gave it a try. But won't be back. Stuffy small restaurant. No one to greet us except one waiter w dirty dishes. Sat at back. Wine sits across with no stools. Kind of acts like a screen. But. Nice selection. Need more waiters. The two wait staff plus owner tried to cover territory but tables sat dirty for... More

We went there with a birthday group of about 8 people. The food is ok, but after going to this place for about 8 years plus, its starting to get tired. The food is a bit above average, and it never seems to change. Service was slow and the place was less than 1/2 full on a weekday. They did... More

We were a large party. The waitress took all the orders and we did ask that the one person at the head of the table get a candle in his dessert after dinner. The soup was average, the salad was average. Then came the dinner. Plates were brought out only 2 at a time with a long gap in between... More
