My friends and I were referred to Marchetti's by a local on a Saturday night. Upon arrival, the place was packed with people waiting in various locations inside and outside. The hostess gave us a wait time of an hour+ and we had to be somewhere later on. I asked if they had full menu service at the bar and... More

I have been going to Marchetti's since I was a small child. On the positive side, there are some great dishes that we just have to have when we visit. Some of my family members go for the prime rib, and the Calamari alla Mamma is a favorite, but I think if any other restaurant made it, we'd probably never... More

Marchetti's is one of the best restaurants in RI. Prices are low. Servings are large, and everyone leaves with a doggy bag. The menu has a nice selection of Italian foods. They are all well prepared and each meal comes with a family style bowl of nicely chilled salad. As others have commented on the Lobster Roll, we've only seen... More

My father in law chose Marchetti's for his birthday celebration and we were not disappointed. Thankfully we made reservations because the wait would have been very long. Great service (genuinely nice) and the food was great! Portions are enormous.... Family style eating, don't expect fine dining.

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
