HUGE Portions. Good value. Wait, even with reservations.

Marchetti's is an icon Rhode Island Italian restaurant. The food is good. Prices reasonable. Portion size is ridiculous! Certainly a good place to go if you want leftovers. Not if you want to control your weight. Figure on a wait (often outside in the heat or cold), even with reservations.

We had the baked seafood casserole....fish, baked stuffed shrimp, scallops......generous portion cooked perfectly.....$9.95!!! Huge family style bowl of their great salad. We arrived at 1:45pm and still had to wait a half hour... More

This place is jam packed every Fri/Sat night. During the week it is very busy but not as bad. What I just don't understand is the food is NOT great. Its thick oily gravy (sauce), wilted bag O salad with a gallon of dressing, and the food that is fried smells like the oil has not been changed in a... More

Went yesterday on March 13th (Friday). As usual it was very busy and there was a one hour wait. They need to do something for the waiting area. It needs to be bigger and they should think of having a waitress who can brink drink from the bar to the waiting area. I could not even get to the bar... More

This was our first time there, but will be back for sure. I had the lobster ravioli which was very good. It came with shrimp and many large pieces of lobster in the sauce along with about 8 lobster filled raviolis. I didn't like the big chunks of tomato in the pink vodka sauce, but I just pushed them aside.... More

Had a fabulous meal at Marchetti's Saturday night with 2 other couples. My husband and I decided on the place to go and lobster rolls were discussed. We have enjoyed lobster rolls at Marchettis several times & thought our best friends would enjoy it as well. We were not mistaken. All 6 of us had wonderful meals & enough that... More

Our first visit to Marchetti's, but not our last. Suggested by a colleague as well as a high school friend...we stopped in at Marchetti's. It was crowded for lunch on a Saturday...we sat on the bar side in a nice booth (old and wooden, but still very comfortable)...servers are very experienced as well as very professional and friendly. We ordered... More

Spur of the moment decided to take my wife to lunch and had no reservations and had not been to this restaurant in years and thought it might be worthwhile to try. Was told there would be a 20 minute wait which turned out to closer to a half hour but can't complain on that day. Waitress was the busiest... More
