I have travelled a lot over the years, including to Europe, and Marchetti's is still one of the best Italian restaurants I have ever been to. The portion sizes get most of the attention, but that is not why I love this place. The food is also amazing. If you are looking to complain, there is a lot to complain... More

Everyone in New England talks lobster rolls but this place delivers. Order the cold lobster roll you will not be disappointed.

We went here on 7/1 and it was crowded. The wait was only 25 minutes though. Were seated and a waitress came over right away. The service was great, so much that I tipped over 20%. We started out with a house salad. The dressing was great. I had the Baked stuffed lobster roll and it was fantastic. Everyone else... More

I will say that the food was satisfactory but the service was very bad the Waite for the food was over and hour and each time we requested something the staff would forget it or we ended up waiting a long time for it. The place was definitely under staffed the the amount of people that were their

We were taken to this wonderful restaurant by a close friend. We decided that because it was a nice day, we would like to dine on their outdoor patio. There were plenty of available tables to chose from because it was early on a Saturday afternoon. Their menu was extensive! Lots of choices for every palate. Our waiter was attentive,... More

Let's get this out of the way: the portions are huge. No doubt about it, the size of the plates of food that will come out to you is remarkable. That being said, we had a reservation for 8:30 and were not seated until 9:15. This is just not acceptable. The place was jam packed. The are clearly doing well... More

If you don't go off-hours you will wait a long time for a table - even with a reservation. BUT the lobster roll is the best you will have anywhere - including Maine. The portions are very big (who needs all that food??) and the prices are reasonable, so the place is mobbed.
