First time and we'll go back again!

We gathered here at Marcos for our annual band Christmas party. What a great place. Food was very great and the service was excellent! There were 14 of us all together and they waited on us very professionally and even issued separate checks per couple. The dinning table was laid out perfectly and... read more

Came back again, another enjoyable evening. We came here on a Sunday evening recently, and weren't disappointed. Service was friendly and efficient. We loved our appetizer, stuffed banana peppers. Spicy and cheesy! My husband enjoyed the chicken parmigiana, and what a huge portion! I had the gnocchi and it too was delicious and plentiful. The warm bread and dipping oil... More

This restaurant is overpriced based on food quality and service. Salads were not fresh and soggy. We spent $200 for dinner and the topper was the $3.50 split plate charge because my young grandchildren split a dinner. Really! An extra empty plate for $3.50. Service was slow! We will not be returning.

The serving staff were beyond helpful. Friendly and attentive. Excellent Chianti and reasonably priced food. But the portions were huge and the cooking a little bit clumsy. I opted for the veal with mushrooms with a macaroni side. The veal was far too rich and the penne covered in an acidic tasteless tomato purée like sauce. The house pizza my... More

This restaurant is a few blocks from a factory that makes piano rolls. I liked the sandwiches that they serve.

I really think Marco's is underrated. The food is always extremely good, the prices are fair and the ambiance very comfortable. They are more than just a red sauce Italian restaurant as they have a large selection of creative dishes which can be prepared with either chicken or veal. The Carcofi and the Marguerita are my two personal favorites but... More

All food is exceptional, from the appetizers to the desserts! Friendly, warm atmosphere with great service! Marco's personally checked in with our table and we felt like we were at a friend's home!!! Marco's Mother makes the desserts and only problem is you have to be sure to save room and deciding which one can be very difficult!

I have been dining at Marco's for many years and have always had excellent meals. The only problem is I always end up getting the same thing because it's so delicious! All the dinners include salad and pasta so you usually take home some yummy leftovers. Can't get the Veal Carciofi off my favorites list. Casual dining at its best!... More
