You cannot go wrong with any menu item from Marchetti's. This family owned Italian restaurant is a gem to the locals in the area. HUGE portions and delicious food, but if you visit on a weekend -- expect to wait at least 30-45 minutes. They accommodate to parties large and small and have attentive wait staff. Very very busy place!... More

Pros: Delicious, very reasonably priced, gigantic portions, very large menu Cons: Parking a problem so you need to go early by 5pm at the latest, they take reservations but they don’t mean anything because you still wait Highly recommended: chicken parm, lobster mac & cheese, spaghetti and meatballs, chicken marsala, seafood alfredo, sangria. The portions are so large my big... More

I was greeted by my waitress Michelle upon arrival at my table. I told her I had heard about the Lobster rolls and had decided to have one for dinner. She explained that they currently only have cold one's and that she could bring some melted butter. I had the choice of fries, backed potato or veggies. The food and... More

We used to think of this place as a food factory - churning out mediocre tasting food in Herculean portions, but we went recently for a family graduation dinner and we were very pleasantly surprised at how delicious the food was. Very extensive menu in colossal sizes. And I mean colossal. You can EASILY split an entree with 2-3 people.... More

Marchetti's is great for any occasion. My mom and I routinely eat there. The atmosphere is great and the food is always delicious, plus the portions are perfect to bring some home or share. My favorite dish is the Chicken Marsala Alfredo, since I have allergies I always order my food a little different and they are always very accommodating.... More

Marchetti's is famous for their large portions. The food is generic Italian, plus some sea food. Food is tasty, but not top of the line Italian (lots of great Italian eateries in R.I.). Don't go on a Monday, as is the case with most Italian restaurants, it won't be open. When you do go there, be prepared for a significant... More

The serving was so large that I got to share it's yumminess! The restaurant's atmosphere was lively and it was fun to see celebrity photos hung throughout the... More

Marchettis is a place you will not leave hungry. We went with 3 other couples. They start off with family style salad and bread. The menu is pretty extensive. The drinks are reasonable. We had a variety of selections off the menu. All were very happy with their selections. The portions are large. I had one of the specials. It... More

There are a lot of Italian restaurants but none come close to Marchetti's. Great food, huge portions, great service. The wait is usually a while but well worth it!
