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

Believe it or not, I was born and raised in CRANSTON and never ate at Marchetti's! Well, I heard about their Lobster Roll and finally got try it! It did not disappoint. 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!

They give you enough food for a family of four, but it is poor quality. It is always very busy but there herd you like cattle and sometimes it is just awful I will not be back.

Heard this place was fantastic. Tried to get in on a Saturday night it was packed with over an hour's wait so made reservations for another day. Got there on Wednesday night for reservations and still packed so I'm expecting something wonderful. Just got OK. We're 6 adults crammed into a booth. Waiter was pleasant but not overly attentive. Food... More

Wasn't crazy about the place. They give you a lot of food so many of the elderly customers were taking half home. Pasta was overcooked and not al dente like I like it. Sauce was just ok.

Consistently Good food, good variety, BEST lobster roll in the state! Salad and bread with olive oil is a personal favorite, along with all the Italian food choices. The wait can be lengthy on the week ends but food and service is worth it
