I was annoyed with patrons (who had doggie bags in hand ) lounging around while the waiting area was packed. The staff didn't want to rush the customers who had been finished for 20 minutes. My complaint is not with the restaurant but with the lack of courtesy on the part of fellow diners. The food was definitely worth the... More

This restaurant has a great variety of Italian Food. They have a great lunch menu with a good variety and good prices. I especially like their spaghetti, anti-pasta salad, and Frutta De Mare. The Torpedo and Calamari sandwiches are great. For lunch I get the half of Torpedo sandwich and salad. I get the salad in their Greek style which... More

We moved to Blossom Valley eight years ago and stopped by Marechiaro's our first week. We have continued to enjoy lunches and dinners there at least twice a month ever since. Family owned, generous servings, friendly service and authentic tastes...everything one could want in a favorite Italian restaurant. I get to eat at fine places all the time and NONE... More

This is our go-to for pizza and meatball sandwiches. Friends that visit from out of town always need to have these items during their stay. It's casual and friendly and seems to be always busy.

I take my family and extended family and friends here every time I'm in town. Great food -the best pepperoni pizza ANYWHERE!! Very reasonable. Another plus is we always run into friends we've not seen in years -every single time. You'd think we're not good at keeping in touch, but I'm talking about friends from school (Granite Hills, Grossmont, and... More

We enjoyed a family celebration this weekend at Marechiaro's Italian Restaurant. This is one of our favorite, reasonably priced Italian places. The service is prompt and excellent and the atmosphere is very friendly and relaxed. The food is excellent and they make cream sauces 'to die for'.... Our favorites are the tortellini, lasagne, and eggplant parmigiana. All in all, a... More

Have dined here dozens of times over the years, as well as "take out". It is consistently good every single time. Pricing is quite reasonable and portions are sufficient enough to satisfy any hunger. This is one of those places that draws you back over and over because everything is perfectly prepared, quite tasty, and they offer excellent service.

Stopped off for a bite on our way home to AZ. Really glad we did. Good pasta and pizza, nice flavor and friendly staff. A bit dates decor, but, good nonetheless.
