Marchettis is absolutely amazing! If you're a first timer and want calamari, try their calamari-ala-mama, it is an excellent appetizer. Their family style salad is the best around and the same for the bread that you can dip in oil and garlic. As for the main meal, they have something for everyone. You will have enough for a meal another... More

The veal part is great and as other reviewers have said portions are usually enough for 2 meals. My family and I love this place. If you plan on dining at the restaurant at a busy... More

I went to Marchetti’s as part of a group of six people. It was difficult to find a parking spot in the lot. We had a reservation for 5:30 and were seated within ten minutes of our arrival, but I have the feeling that had we had a later reservation, we would have been in for a much longer wait.... More

This was my wife and I's 1st visit, won't be our last! Best lobster roll ever! Enormous, large chucks of fresh tasty lobster in a roll served with french fries. A great value for $16.95. We could only eat half, enjoyed the other half at home. On our next visit, we will split one lobster roll and then try something... More

Very simply stated the claim to fame for this restaurant is it's Large portions and fair prices. It is not a fine dining restaurant. A local favorite that serves decent food at a fair price.

When you went to Marchetti's a yr ago you could feed a family of 4 on one meal, the food is great, just no big bank for your buck, went back a wk later to be sure I wasn't mistaken. Ordered clam strips , it was hard to find the clam strips for the salard,

I have to say I gave this place another shot since it's always busy and we heard great things. But what I found is that I won't be returning. Food was bland, flies everywhere. Not my cup of tea.
