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.

“Marco's Pizza was good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Pizza was a must have! Price was right too. Service was great-it was our white water rafting guide from earlier in the day! We asked for a good pizza place and Marco's happened to be his 2nd job!

“Good Calzone”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

I got the cheese calzone and it was good. It literally just came out of the oven and was REALLY hot. Though the marinara dipping sauce was basically chopped up tomatoes, not really a sauce. This is the first time I have ever had a cheese calzone with riccotta cheese in it and I enjoyed it.

“marco's local restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

Not to be confused with the chain of Marcos. It was excellent. We tried the ranch chicken pizza and it was so good. Would go there again for sure. Love Asheville.

Some of the best pizza in town, even if the dough is a bit salty.
