Let me start by stating my husband and I are 100% Italian. We appreciate good food and honestly are used to good Italian food that either I or my many relatives have prepared over the last 50 plus years. We read the reviews and were sent here by some friends(non-Italian). We had a 7:00 p.m reservation for 4 on a... More

Dinner there on a crowded Tuesday evening. The steak special was cooked to perfection for the three of us that ate steak. One had the Chicken Picatta which was thoroughly enjoyed. Even though it was noisy as most restaurants are, dinner was served in a timely manner. I have been going to this location for many years and not much... More

We had dinner and drinks last night at Marcos on the patio! Wow...what a great experience. I had the ribs - the meat fell of the bone and tasted amazing! The crab stuffed mushrooms blew me away and the white cosmo is a must. Honestly, one of the best meals I have had in ages. Great job!

This place felt like an old-school, small town family restaurant. Cozy atmosphere but food was overpriced and very average. Also, they have family dining but don't have a kid's menu. Next time we'll go to Mama Corolla's down the street for much better food at the same price.

Marco's consistently serves quality food from their menu plus a variety of specials daily that are very unique. Their daily lunch menu is excellent as well with very reasonable prices. I have eaten there over the past 28 years and have never been disappointed. When friends are visiting from out of town, I always take them there.

This restaurant has such authenticity that it could be placed in a movie just for cinematic value. But the food has value of its own. The atmosphere is comfy and leveled, though it's a bit small and tight in some areas (which only adds to the Italian ambiance). A full and elegant bar adds to a traditional fanciful feel. Food...

I have been to Indianapolis hundreds of times in my life, living only a couple hours away, but I was never aware of this restaurant, until a friend took me there this past weekend for dinner. I had a martini, which was very good, and a ribeye steak, which was excellent. The price was very reasonable and the service was... More
