Four friends went to this landmark restaurant for lunch today to see what was up with this so-called monster lobster roll.Well, if you consider that this roll could have it's own zip code,then yeah it's huge.Two of us opted for the stuffed lobster roll.Easily 8ozs. of meat pushing against and overflowing a large lightly toasted torpedo roll.I mean not your...

I left RI over 30 years ago but I still remember when my late Mother would take us here when it was still the Old Diamond Café. They had the best clams zuppa dish in RI. When I’m visiting my family my step-Mom likes to go to Marchettis so we will go, and that’s about once every year or two.... More

This was our second visit to Marchetti's restaurant and we were not disappointed. The portions are large and reasonably priced. They have a great menu and everything we ordered tasted delicious. Not to be missed is their lobster roll which is enormous and priced at $ 16.95 ! Wait staff is friendly and helpful My only disappointment is that I... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants because the food is delicious, plentiful, and fairly priced. The service has been great every time I've visited whether it was for lunch or dinner.

A friend from Rhode Island told us about Marchetti's. You know its going to be good when the parking lot is jammed and the line is out the door at 4:30 on a Saturday. This mostly Italian and Seafood restaurant comes with lots of choices. The 8oz lobster roll is done two ways; you can get it as a cold... More

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.
