Description: When you walk in to Marco's Italian Bistro you'll feel as though you've stepped in to a scene from the Soprano's... A small piece of Little Italy or a restaurant on a street corner in Rome. Come join us for dinner, you'll find that we cook everything from scratch. In our kitchen you won't find a single can, jar, or box - just freshly prepared, handmade, authentic Italian cuisine unlike any other in town. Our Martini menu can get overwhelming... We do recommend trying every single one of our 60 martinis. We do not, however, recommend trying them all in one visit. We also stock a wide variety of wines from all over the world - guaranteed to make your meal an even more amazing experience.

Went by for dinner this past week and unfortunately found out they are now closed. Their facebook page says "all good things must come to an end". Great italian food will now be missed. At least there are other great options in town.

We wanted to try a new place in downtown Chattanooga. The whole experience was inconsistent. We had appetizers and salads as our meal, so we didn't try the entrees. The eggplant was good the bruchetta topping was good but the bread for the bruchetta seemed a little stale. The bread for the meal was fresh and tasty! The. Tiramisu was... More

Wife ordered the Spinach and Chicken Ravioli w/Cajun cream sauce, she really enjoyed it. Kids pizza was 10", I on the other hand, I went with the special, Filet Mignon topped w/lobster in a cream sauce, sautéed zucchini and... More

My grandparents and I decided to go out for a nice dinner around 9:30 pm on a Friday night. We had heard good things about Marco's, so we decided to try it out. When we arrived, it was almost deserted besides the bar area. We were seated and immediately noticed that our waiter had been drinking. His words were slurred,... More

I read about Marco's on tripadvisor, and decided to try it out. We hosted a dinner for 36 people there on Saturday. The staff was exceptional, the food was delicious and fresh, and everything was delivered to us promptly. It's really hard to find that kind of service for a large group. I would definitely eat there again... and I... More

Went with a large group, so we tried a variety. Appetizers (fried ravioli...calamari...bruschetta) were wonderful and the entrees (lasagna, chicken parmigiana) were delicious. Serving size was more than enough.

My wife and I looked forward to our first visit to Marco's. We didn't know what to expect, because we had not read the reviews. We were attracted by the published menu and by the elegance of the website presence. The welcome by the receptionist was very gracious, and we were greatly impressed by the "feel" of the restaurant. The... More

My fiancee has a gluten allergy and when the staff was notified, every possible accommodation was made to help her. They had no gluten free alfredo sauce, but as soon as she asked if they did we were told that they could make an alfredo sauce from scratch right then. The chef even came out to speak with us when...
