Lived in RI all my life but never been to Marchettis. I enjoy the service and food from Twin Oaks. Twin Oaks is closed for vacation right now so we thought we'd give Marchetti's a chance since I've heard so much about their lobster salad roll. We got there around 3:30 (Saturday) and sat at the bar. The bar was... More

I think their mantra is "Abundance!" Portion sizes are huge! Their is always a wait to be seated. Ambiance has improved over the years and staff is friendly and efficient. The food is good quality, not great. Prices are very reasonable and commensurate with whats served. There's always enough left to bring home for another meal. It's an easy choice... More

I've been to Marchetti's twice. I've heard much about their prime rib and lobster rolls but I can't seem to get passed the pasta dish covered in seafood and wonderfully light sauce. Chucks of lobster meat, accompanied by shrimp, some scallops and clams, makes this dish a 'can't miss'.....oh and the serving is enough for three and for a price... More

I am originally from RI but left about 30 years ago. I go home occasionally. I used to go to this place back when it was the Old Diamond Café, and then later as Marchetti’s. My Dad and his wife loved it and I have been there many times over the years, mainly because my Dad was a senior citizen... More

This is an older established restaurant in RI that has to be doing something right to judge by the crowds and wait to get in even with a reservation. Haven't been in awhile but gave it a try again last night we had reservations and still had to wait 20 minutes for our table. But the wait was well worth... More

We went here for my grandmother's birthday dinner. There was 11 of us. The staff was very friendly. The food was good and portions were enough to take home some.

I've been to this restaurant a number of times. If you go during lunch time it's very busy, especially on Friday's. If you go for supper during the week there is a steady stream to people coming and going. On the weekends if you don't get there early be prepared to wait. I ordered the Chicken Milanese which is a... More

Was taken to this restaurant by my wife. First thing I noticed was all the employees moving around. There was at least a three to one ratio of employees to diners. I would not even attempt to try and eat here in the evening or during the weekend. The prices were average and the portions on some meals were big.... More

This is a great place to enjoy bottomless salad and bread dipped in olive oil with roasted garlic. The entrees are so delicious and bountiful, you will be able enjoy your meal again the next day because you will not be able to eat it all in one sitting!
