Description: Marco's Pizzeria continues the family business started in 1933 of cooking unparalleled New York-style pizza in two locations in Asheville, North Carolina. Marco's Great Uncle Patsy started the family's first pizzeria when he expanded the offerings of his ice cream parlor to include the uniquely New York-Italian dish. Patsy's Pizzeria in Harlem originally used a coal-fired oven to create a crust that is thin and crisp on the outside. Today, the fourth generation of pizza-makers in Marco's family continues to use Patsy's recipe and methods to create a dish that is unlike anything else available outside New York.

A long-time favorite! Anything you order here is going to be good. Pizza (fabulous), Greek salad (w/ tasty dressing), meatball sandwich (YUM), you name it...you won't be disappointed. Prices are good, service is always top-notch and Brian even greets us when we walk in the door.

Went for late lunch with 8 people. Immediately seated us; we ordered a variety of pizzas; all were excellent. Hard to choose which to eat. Service was outstanding; never waited for drinks or anything. Not very well visible from road front.....

Stopped in for lunch while in the area. Great little place. Everyone was very friendly and service was great. The kale salad was excellent! The Greek Stromboli was fresh and delicious. Best pizza around according to hubby. We're glad we found this place tucked back in the corner of shopping center.

We have been to Marco's several times and really enjoyed the pizza. Well I don't know what happened today, Sunday Dec 20,2014, but the pizza was not very good. The pizza had very little sauce and therefore was quite dry and flavorless. The cook also left it in the oven too long and the back crust and pepperoni were charred.... More

My wife and I stopped in for pizza today and we were both glad we did. We really enjoyed our pepperoni pizza (love the thin crust). You could tell it was fresh. Lots of families came in while we ate and several appeared to be regulars. Our server, Tommy, was very friendly. Great tasting pizza. Good value as well.

We were hungry for pizza and was looking for a new place to try. We found this one and was very happy with the choice. The crust was very light and flavorful. The leftovers heated up very well also. We will definitely be back here when we are in town next.

I say that because the thin crust is crispy and the options are endless! Today I had their Robbin's Speciality Pizza...thin crust with Gorgonzola cheese, mozzarella, roasted potatoes and caramelized onions, AND no tomato sauce. It was SOOOO good! "Leanna" (sp?) provided me with a side of marinara sauce to dip my crust ends in...WOW! We also got a Pesto... More

Delicious thin crust pizza with real mozzarella cheese set Marco's apart in a city that has many great pizza options. If you like the pizza in New York this is a close as you are going to get in Asheville.
