We haven't been to Marchetti's since we moved to Florida in 95. We thought it would be a special treat to take our kids for their birthday. We had reservations for 8pm. We were seated at 8:45pm. The wait time was an inconvenience, but the service and food certainly made up for it. The calamari... read more

We had a large group, but yet, service was very good, and food was brought out piping hot. Food portions are amazing and very good quality. Vela dishes especially good. Wines are reasonably priced.

This is one of the last authentic ones, as most of them have gone touristy, and gone in for the trendy Northern Italian menu. Unpretentious, just real. I like to sit in the "booth" section, and choose from the simpler items available. The mark of a good Italian restaurant is the treatment of the veal dishes, and these have never... More

My wife Kate, our daughter Colleen and her Husband Roger, and I had the pleasue of dining at Marchetti's on Sat, 4/11/15. We all enjoyed the BEST lobster roll that we ever had. We were extremely satisfied with the service, the food, and the prices. Kate & Bernie Czeck Mocanaqua, PA

Yes, the portions are huge, the prices are reasonable, and the salad dressing is very good. But, the food is average, and the service on the weekends is so-so. Even if you have a reservation, you have to wait. I am always UNDERwhelmed when I go here.

Strap the feedbag on. Literally everyone leaves with half their meal. The food is outstanding, the chicken parm is a favorite. The lobster rolls looked outstanding too.

If you have memories of what Italian restaurants were like in the '50s, this will make you happy. Good quality food, well prepared not too original.
