Good Food, not the best location

The food was excellent but a little overpriced for the area. It has a romantic vibe and is great for couples. I did not care for the location but once we stepped inside I was pleasantly surprised.

I pride myself on being fair and unbiased, so I'm simply going to tell it like it is. Disappointingly, Ristorante Marco did not live up to the hype. I was completely underwhelmed! I had heard so many good things about this "great restaurant in Bear" that I needed to check out. I heard people say, "It's a little pricey, but... More

The food was delicious, the portions are kind of small and it is on the expensive side. However, the atmosphere was a little on the intimate side and the wife loved it.

Marco's is charming. The bar is small but lots of fun and Marco is usually pouring drinks and making sure that everyone is well attended to . They have a lounging area where is a great place for a group of friends to hang out. The dinning room is well decorated and welcoming. Our favorite dish is the whole Bronzino...awesome!!... More

The food here is excellent. I tried the Tuna & Risotto 4 Formaggi which was very tasty. But $28 for risotto (even with 4 savory cheeses and a half-dozen slivers of Tuna) is, well, still just rice. The Filet Tuscany (w/mushrooms), Penne alla Genovese and were decent, and appropriately priced. Finally, we tried one of the specialty pasta dishes with... More

This is our go to place when we don't feel like cooking. The food is moderately priced, good wine list and the food is consistently good. Marco, the host is always welcoming.

Wife and I were on way to Dewey Beach, DE and stopped for lunch. Planned to stop at a salad bar but made wrong turn and saw this small Marco restaurant. We like to try new eateries. Upon entry I almost walked out as it looks like a fancy 5-star establishment, beautifully decorated. We were so sure the prices would... More

This was my first visit to Marco's. I loved the atmosphere and the owner was on hand to greet us. His attention to detail is impeccable and watched every plate that came out of the kitchen. Our waitress was friendly and took the playfulness of the gentleman I was with style! She took excellent care of us and we showed... More
