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.

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.

We dine at the South Asheville location of Marcos and have been there numerous times. I would definitely go there for the pizza, salads and sandwiches. I recently decided to try to baked ziti and what a huge disappointment that was. The pasta was rubbery, the sauce was bland and the cheese wasn't even melted. I didn't want to complain... More

This is Asheville's best pizza. Nobody else is close. Delicious full flavored chunky tomato sauce with perfect seasonings and very tasty just the right amount of cheese. For pepperoni lovers order a double topping. The crust is nicely crusty and good to the last bite. As for any poor reviews there's always that 10% of cranky people you can't satisfy... More

This is one of our go-to places when we don't feel like cooking. Great value for the dollar in terms of well prepared Italian comfort food - pizza, spaghetti, calzones, etc. They have nice large house-made meatballs too. Sometimes they are a little heavy handed with the salt in the pizza dough, but I tend to be sensitive to even... More

We arrived to find the entrance packed with a crowd waiting for tables. We checked in with the smiling hostess but then we saw there were available seats at the bar and decided to sit and eat there. Glad we did. Our bartender/server Janice was friendly and attentive and offered tastings of a couple of beers to help us decide... More

I've been to Marco's Pizzeria twice now and everytime i go, i am never satisfied with the pizza and neither is my family. We always get a normal pepperoni pizza and everytime there is too much cheese and not much pepperoni. In addition to that, the sauce is always too sweet. Honestly i think who ever makes the pizzas should... More
