Great Restaurant, maybe TOO well known!

I went with a friend last week. We decided we wanted to go out for a nice dinner before we went to a Christmas concert. When we arrived in the lobby it was jammed with waiting customers, but we were told by the hostess that these were all large parties, and she could get us a seat fairly... read more

I think that people figure if you get a lot of food it has to be good! This restaurant deals solely in quantity over quality. Never ever going back. It's just awful. But if you like the Olive Garden you'll love this place!

Nice place the portions are huge but the food is average at best. Prices are reasonable and the place is very clean.

You cannot go wrong no matter what you order here. Hot lobster roll, Lobster mac n cheese, and Chicken Marsala Fettuccine are my favorites. Servings sizes are huge and you can get 2-3 meals form each entree. One of my favorite restaurants in the state. Service is very good.

Absolutely amazing food. I've been coming here for years for their calamari a la mamma and their chicken parm. By far the best I've ever had in RI. Only wish is that it wasn't so busy all the time! Maybe they should open up a second location! :)

This restaurant has been one of my favorites for years and still doesn't disappoint! Fantastic customer service, even on busy nights...which is every night. Make your reservations and I promise you will not regret it. Wide variety of Italian dishes including some pretty amazing seafood specials. Completely worth the trip!

My wife and I have been to Marchetti's Restaurant several times. The food and service have been excellent on all occasions. Try it - you will not be disappointed! One tip is to be conscious of what day and time of day that you go, it can get very busy and have as much as an hour wait at certain... More

This place is a RI staple when it comes to good Italian food! We love the chicken soup, chicken franchaise, chicken parm and the prime rib. Always great/fast service and fair prices. You won't leave hungry, ever!

Two years ago, my family experienced the longest wait and terrible service. I said we would never go back. After receiving a gift card, we tried it again. We went on a weekday at 5. It looked like we got there before the rush. Our waiter was great and made suggestions. Food was great, but I don't think it is... More

Everything about this restaurant is good. The food is consistent and you get huge portions. The only problem with this restaurant is the wait time to get seated. It gets extremely busy..
