I really wanted to like this place. The reviews were great, the menu looked huge, the portions gargantuan. We went on a busy Sunday night right before the line about the door. I ordered the baked seafood and my husband the veal saltimbocca. Came with a family style salad that was already dressed w house vinaigrette. It was fresh and... More

Place is packed and busy all the time. The food and service is great so of course it is. Do yourself a favor and make a reservation but definitely go. Everyone loved everything they had and we had a table of 11 who had all different things so no one hit wonders. The calamari alla mama was great the chicken... More

The food here is good, but not gourmet. However, if it is lacking in refinement, they make up for it in portion size. One meal will often last me 2 or 3 days with leftovers. While I would not say it is a "fine dining" Italian restaurant, it is a great place to go for satisfying food for a great... More

To have dinner at Marchetti's is like going home, for my wife and I, we have lived in the area for over 20+ years, know almost all the waitstaff and the owners are friends of ours. That's not to say that if the food was not good, we wouldn't tell them and you! Over the years, the menu has shrunken... More

Had reservations the other night for 630pm we weren't called until 800pm. Food has gone down hill. very overcooked pasta and very very very over fried chicken. So sad. waitress was wonderful. But, won't be bringing large groups back.

Very good food and LOTS OF IT!!! No question you will be leaving with a substantial doggie bag, but I don't believe the dog will be having it. The food is too good! ENJOY!

This was a very disappointing visit. Our servers teeth were rotting out of his mouth and he had a very rough approach. His dialogue was condescending and he really had no place to have such arrogance. The food was not great, especially for an establishment that has been around so long. My mashed potatoes were overcooked and the peapods drenched... More

An old favorite for comfort food. The portions are huge and prices are fair. The seafood is delicious and the Italian classics are excellent! This is an anchor of the ocean state!

Basically, if you want a good/average Italian restaurant and want to take home enough pasta to last for a few meals, this is the place. My parents love it. My husband and I think it serves good, consistent Italian but it is not superb by any means. And the portions are just hideous. It's very, very popular, and you'll have... More

This was my second visit to Marchetti's but in some ways very different and better. For one, I went on a Thursday just after 4 PM and there weren't many diners yet. It was a very late lunch for my friend and I. I ordered the fried scallops, french fries, and a side of broccoli because I can't eat cole... More
