“Man cannot live by sauce alone”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

The sad thing is that this place was highly recommended by the locals and the Chamber of Commerce for pasta.So, naturally we ordered pasta, ravioli and the house specialty Lasagna. While he lasagna was edible, the ravioli was stuff with some undetermine "thing". I must admit that the sauce on the past was good, but man cannot live by sauce alone. The dessert was forgetable. The service was slow and the waiter appear uninspired to do his job. This is not an inexpensive place either.

“This restaurant is exceptional!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

The staff at our hotel recommended this restaurant and we're glad they did. We liked it
so well we went back for a second time. The food, wine, atmosphere and service were
excellent and reasonably priced. Apparently this restaurant is no secret because there was
a line out of the door when we left at 11 o' clock at night. Next time we're in Mendoza,
La Marchigiana will be our first stop!

“Pleasant setting, ok Italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

We were looking for a break from beef and found La Marchigiana. We were pleased with our food. I had a cold calamari appetizer that I enjoyed a great deal. The main courses were fine, though there was a bit too much sauce in both cases. The red sauce seemed a bit sweet for my tastes.

The setting is a large, overly-lit room with tables both for couples and large families. The wine list is extensive and reasonably priced.

Service was very good. Our server was attentive, but not overly so.

“Enjoyable dinner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

The restaurant is a little bright but has beautiful decor. I had goat ribs that were very good and also tried the lasagna with two sauces that was excellent. The waiters gave ok service - nothing special. Would definitely go again.

“Terrible excuse for Italian food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Skip this place -- not good at all. Felt like a chain restaurant with really bright, bad lighting in this super modern space. Our waiter was very nice and helpful. Wine list was good and reasonable. Prices were good but the food just was not. We heard Florentina Bistro is great but they were closed Sunday nights.
