Marotta's patio renovation 2014

about us

Marotta's began its adventure as the premiere Italian dining experience in historic Cleveland Heights in fall 2000. Marotta's is proud to offer an "Italian only" wine list representing most regions of Italy. The 300 label list features highly sought after vintages such as the 1997 Brunello di Montalcino and the newly released 2000 Barolo. These wines are just a sampling of the ever growing cellar at Marotta's. Most of Marotta's menu is unique to Cleveland, and you won't find many of our specials on any other table outside of la bella Italia.

Piacere - we invite you to a cozy seat in our dining room, bar, or lovely outdoor patio to enjoy a most buonissimo meal.

about the owners

Brian Linihan and Alicia Marotta Linihan met while working in the restaurant business in the early nineties. Brian is a New York transplant and a graduate of Johnson and Wales University in Providence Rhode Island. Alicia is a Cleveland native and graduate of the culinary program at Cuyahoga Community College. They combined efforts, and in the fall of 2000, Marotta's was born. Both aficionados of Italian culture, the Linihans travel to Italy every fall to hone their skills. Amongst much research, they also tour many vineyards to meet with eonologists about current and upcoming vintages.
