We were a table of 12 and the service was extremely slow. We waited a long time for our drinks and bread. The food was mediocre . Our waitress never came around to see if we needed something . Never refilled water glasses or to check if someone wanted more wine. The restaurant was not very crowded, and maybe our... More

I was visiting my daughter's family for Easter and went out to dinner to celebrate. We wanted to try someplace different and tried Marciano's. The staff was attentive and they had a good wine list to choose from. Half of our group ordered veal. I had veal piccata which was very good. I ordered creme brûlée for dessert which was... More

I don't understand Memphis upscale diners. I travel a lot and eat at some great restaurants. Even in Memphis we eat our at least 4 times a week for dinner. Marcianos is one of Memphis's best restaurants, but they never seem busy. The chef/owner won't serve any thing unless it is the best. Lamb shank and basmatti rice? Awesome! Seafood... More

We were hoping to discover a great Italian restaurant. Sadly, our search must go on. The bar is above average in height, requiring chairs that are impossible to climb onto if you are under 5'5". The wine list by the glass has numerous acceptable selections. Parking is adequate. Rest room was clean. Service was great. Unfortunately, the low point is... More

This restaurant is one of those places you always hope you'll find. The atmosphere is sophisticated without being stuffy. Soft music and white tablecloths. Well stocked bar and run by the friendly, wonderful owner/chef. He is happy to discuss recommendations but you cannot go wrong with anything on the menu. Personal favorites are lamb, a chicken dish called feson joon,... More

The food is made fresh and so tasteful. He uses spices to flavor the food and not just salt and pepper. If the snapper is in get it! Best dish you will ever eat! Dessert was homemade and delightful too. Great service too!

Absolutely a wonderful Experience and the food is bought and prepared fresh daily. The menu has a great selection with delicious entrees to choose from that are created by Chef Mortez. The atmosphere is beautiful and the waitstaff are excellent. It is the best Italian & Mediterranean food you will ever experience in Memphis. The spinach salad is delicious with... More

The owner Mortez is a true chef with great creativity. He only uses fresh ingredients. We ordered grouper,excellent fresh, cooked perfectly with a delicious sauce.$28 The antipasto was a nice variety, not the usual meat , cheese and olives. $11. The wine list is reasonable. The service was attentive but not overbearing. If I lived in Memphis, I would go... More

By far the best restaurant in the entire Memphis area. The food is awesome and the waitstaff is superb. My husband and I go there every couple months and the food is always wonderful.
