If you are looking for a good meal with almost an assurance that there will be a take home portion, this is the place to go! From the huge salad bowl ..which is refillable if you ask, to the delicious bread and entree, you will be full before you know it. I had the veal parm which is one of... More

Visiting R.I. and on the way to the airport . . . we heard about the lobster roll and just had to try Marchetti's version. This was probably the biggest lobster roll that I ever saw/ate. [Having grown up in New England, I have been eating lobster for many years] We sat outside today and the service was great. The... More

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.
