It is really strange to say this restaurant is funny, but when you see the portions of food on the plates, you most certainly will laugh. Outrages portions, that are so popular that people go there for the sole reason to take half their food home. A side order of pasta with a meat dish is so large it could... More

For the 20+ years I have lived in Cranston, it's always been all about Marchetti's in Cranston. It's a constant reference for directions ("When Marchetti's is on your right, go to the light and take a left") and you can smell the garlic for miles and miles. The food here is SO GOOD. The portions are insanely huge, so plan... More

We enjoyed lunch here mid afternoon. I had the ravioli and meatball. The sauce was delicious! I was with a lifetime local who has never had a bad meal here. I'd recommend it.

Price and size of the meals is a good bang for the buck. Service was very good and the waitress was very helpful.

We got here around 5 on a Saturday night and was surprised there was a line for indoor seating. We decided to eat outside and got a table right away. In a short while a musician started playing tunes. The kids ordered off the kids menu, a burger, Chicken Parmigiana, and chicken fingers. I was amazed at the size of... More

Enjoyed Marchettis! We did make a reservation. Got to the restaurant 45 min early and waited a half hour beyond our time. It was definitely worth the wait! I had the crab cakes and stuffed lobster roll. The crab cakes were delicious and not full of green peppers. All crab!! The lobster roll was the biggest I ever had -... More
