Whenever we come to town, my husband and I love to eat at Marchetti's. I have the super seafood special and he has the veal parmesan. So delicious and the portions are so big that we both take at least half home and still end up with two heat-up meals at home! I only brought it down a star as... More

We have been coming here for years & swear no one ever leaves without a doggy bag. The food is always delicious and reasonably priced. There is a wide range of choices , something for everyone and no one is ever disappointed. My favorite is the Super Seafood Special (I always get at least another meal out of it) but... More

If you're planning to visit Rhode Island and someone recommends "TheHill" (which is commonly known in RI) for good Italian dining, that's o.k., but if you want a LOT more bang for your buck, travel another 10 minutes from Providence to Cranston and visit Marchetti's. There are a few things to keep in mind however, before you make your visit:... More

Marchettis is a great spot for authentic Italian cusine. They offer a wide variety of choices including steaks, seafood, chicken, Italian and sandwiches. The bread and salad bowl is delicious and portions are huge! If you find yourself in Cranston, this is a great place to eat. They now accept reservations so call ahead....or you will wait!!!

I've never understood WHY this restaurant is always so busy. In a state that has arguably the best food in the USA, Marchetti's is ALWAYS packed. I've eaten here a few times, and I've never had anything that appealed to me. Granted, the portions are incredibly large, but the taste is generally just o.k. This time I tried the lobster... More

We had a reservation for 6 people at 8:00, but didn't get seated until 8:40. Despite the wait, our party enjoyed our dinner! The food was good, but the portions were incredibly large! Too much food for one person, so I'd recommend prepare to have your meal again for left overs!

We New Englanders are pretty picky about our lobster rolls, so when several people told me Marchetti's had the best, I had to try it. I was not disappointed. Huge, fresh chunks of claw meat with just the tiniest hint of mayo. Amazing! My family and I went at 3:00 on a Saturday afternoon and the place was packed. We... More
