Had heard of this place before, and all reviews were good. We had reservations for 7pm on Saturday night. We still had to wait almost an hour and the waiting space was crowded. The wait was worth it! Service was friendly, quick and responsive. The wine list was limited but appropriately tailored to pair with the food options. The food... More

Always such a wonderful dining experience with superb food and amazing service. Even with a reservation, you may have to wait a little bit so plan accordingly. By far, one of the absolute best restaurants in Rhode Island.

I wish I had known that even with a reservation you still have to wait over 30 minutes for a table. The salad was great, the pasta was average, the service was good. Prices were good and plenty of food.

We used to go to Marchetti's quite often 20 years ago when we lived in Cranston. Always rock solid great food and huge portions. While the food quality and portions have not changed, the restaurant itself has been renovated and expanded, with more indoor seating and an enclosed outdoor area. Half hour wait at 8pm on Thursday night. We ordered... More

Went to Marchetti's this restaurant is very busy but we'll worth the wait. If you like lobster roll this is worth coming from far away to try. The service is great and our waiter was friendly and comical. Excellent service,portions and quality of food. I've eaten many lobster rolls in my life and Marchetti's by far the best. Also very...

Probably reviewed by others, but I need to say the lobster, any way you can get it, top of the line. And speaking of lines.... But worth i. A tad expensive, but worth the Italian experience.

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
