Delicious Italian Cuisine

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... read 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

I heard so many good things about Marchetti’s. Every time I drive by this place it’s always crowded, so I assumed there has to be something good about Marchetti’s and I’m missing out. My boyfriend and I made reservations for 8PM on a Friday night. We arrived early and were told we’d have a 30 minute wait. We over heard... More

I've started to come here a few times since last year and their food is always consistently good. The prices are very reasonable and the portions are big. One caution, it's always crowded here so unless you're coming in for an afternoon lunch, you need to make a reservation.

I am totally disappointed. Years ago, we had our Wedding Reception here at Marchetti's as I wanted a smaller get together for guests because this was our 2nd wedding. This was a celebration after having our marriage Blessed in Church before I started my chemo. The food was killer. Just absolutely awesome and service was spectacular. We have been here... More

Marchettis is absolutely amazing! If you're a first timer and want calamari, try their calamari-ala-mama, it is an excellent appetizer. Their family style salad is the best around and the same for the bread that you can dip in oil and garlic. As for the main meal, they have something for everyone. You will have enough for a meal another... More

I am a regular, and do take out 90% of the time from this restaurant. The food is the classic Italian "red gravy/sauce" favorites. The veal part is great and as other reviewers have said portions are usually enough for 2 meals. My family and I love this place. If you plan on dining at the restaurant at a busy... More

I went to Marchetti’s as part of a group of six people. It was difficult to find a parking spot in the lot. We had a reservation for 5:30 and were seated within ten minutes of our arrival, but I have the feeling that had we had a later reservation, we would have been in for a much longer wait.... More
