Restaurant Review


Brioso Ristorante, opened in April 2015, is the second Brioso restaurant in Marlboro owned and operated by the Dimaggio brother's; Raffaele , Pietro, and Calogero. The older of the two restaurants, Brioso Trattoria, is located five minutes north on Route 9.


Brioso Ristorante, is more high end of the two with a rustic, yet upscale Italian country ambiance and a full service bar.


For comparison, a description is provided and noted where differences occur:

Setting/Ambiance - Brioso Ristorante, the larger of the two, is located in a free standing, two story building. The restaurant occupies the 1st floor. There are three dining rooms plus the bar area with high-top tables. The two main dining rooms are attractively done up with stone and earth tone stucco walls, and large tiled flooring. The two dining areas are separated by a high partitioned stone wall with embedded wine racks. The third dining area, off to the left as you enter, is very large and is used mostly for banquets and private parties


Menu - The quality of the ingredients used and the preparation are equivalent. While there are a some items that are offered at both restaurants, - Brioso Ristorante offers a menu with less of the traditional Italian dishes. Home made pasta and gluten free options are available


Service - While both restaurants have wait staffs that are knowledgeable and experienced --- though low on energy --- the service at Brioso Ristorante is a bit more attentive with an increased presence of servers and busing staff.


Alcohol - Brioso Ristorante offers full bar service with a large attractive bar. They offer a wine list of low end, reasonably priced wines, most are Italian wines with just a few choices of USA - California wines


Parking - On site complimentary parking is available. While convenient without out having to walk to your car, the service is slow and there can be a fifteen minute or more wait on busy weekend evenings.


Brioso is open seven days/week: Monday - Thursday: for lunch from 12 PM - 3 PM, for dinner from 4 PM - 10PM.
Friday & Saturday: for lunch from 12 PM - 3 PM, and Dinner from 4 PM - 11 PM
Sunday from 1 PM - 9 PM
