I've no real complaints about Marianna except that they don't offer a fried mozzarella starter, which happens to be my favorite. Their prices are pretty decent (specials can be a bit pricey, but are always the best thing on the menu). It's just a very solid performer. Nothing that will blow your mind, but consistent, delicious food. And Walter, the... More

When I travel I like to find local places with good basic Italian food. I had the gnocchi with marinara. The gnocchi were overcooked and the sauce was sour. The waiter smelled like pot.

We have been there numerous times and enjoyed most of our experiences - especially for dinner. The menu for lunch and dinner is the same, but the service is not. For dinner you can expect good wait staff that often checks on you needs, brings you refills or beverages and bread. Lunch is a different experience. If you have limited... More

Just not our favorite place, OK. Flavors close, but not quite right. Place looks good, staff pleasant, maybe a bit distracted. To our taste: Caesar salad small with no anchovy zip, not enough lemon acid. Lasagna less that an inch high. Marsala pretty sweet, ravioli lacked firmness. All the above for $74. Others have loved this place, so maybe it's... More

Four of us went to Marianna's for my birthday dinner and were treated to fun and very tasty dinners. The Caesar salad was just the way I like it and then the pasta was outstanding. Done just right and with great Italian herb flavors it hit a home run. They even brought my dessert with a candle on it. I... More

We love this Renton gem of an authentic Italian restaurant. Tonight, we had the osso buco and spicy shrimp pasta specials; both were beyond delicious and perfectly cooked. Attentive, friendly waiter. Lively bar too due to Seahawks game; didn't bother us as restaurant is spacious. I cannot say enough good things about this place, which is on par with Il... More

On my way to the airport in Seattle returning to New York, we stopped at Marianna in Renton, WA (quiet, small unpretentious restaurant) which had been recommended to us. We enjoyed a terrific pasta dish with sausage. I wish we had had time to try more dishes on the menu. We had a very nice glass of Pinot Grigio Savian.... More

We frequently go to Marianna before a play at the Renton Civic Theater. We can count on the food to be delicious and wait staff to be friendly and efficient.

Thought i would try this place again. Friendly. Clean. Neighborhoody feel. Bolognesse was odd as it had cream in it...a lot. 12.95. Ordered 2 sides meatballs thinking i would have extra for latter. Not the case. 3 small two-bite meatballs fir 9.50 an order. Lol. What? They were ok...some bit overcooked..others moist. Bread was extra which I understand.

I have been here 6 or 7 times and they are reliably good. Friendly servers. This last time I had the veal and it was cooked in too much oil- my plate had a pool of it after I had eaten. But usually my meal is flavorful and well prepared. Good wine selection. Tables are spaced far enough apart you... More
