Fast, good and cheap. Usually you have to pick two, but here you get all three. The dumplings are fried while you wait, and are excellent. The peanut and cucumber salad is great too.

Conveniently located by Virginia Tech, they serve good food at a reasonable price. Great hot and sour soup, pork buns, sesame noodles and fried pork dumplings. Their sauces are their own creation and delicious. I just wish they offered steamed dumplings as well.

Lunch was quick and good. Its the kind of place where you might by two items to make a combo lunch. Prices are very reasonable. Small area for sit down, but the take out appeared to be hopping. We tried a soup and a cold noodle. Excellent.

Very simple menu with dumpling and cold noodles, not really a full meal for me. Dumpling tasted good, cold noodle was fine. I think they use peanut sauce for the cold noodle, double check if you are allergic to it.

Marco and Luca offers a handful of items and drinks but really people only go for the dumplings which are really tasty and come drowned in a spicy soy sauce. Just try it and you'll know if you just like it or if you'll become a regular. Skip the sides: they aren't nearly as good as the dumplings and are... More

Ran in to grab a quick bite at Marco & Luca. Fried dumplings were fresh and tasty, excellent sauce, very flavorful. Cold noodles with cucumber and peanut butter sauce is a favorite, and theirs did not disappoint. A hearty portion too. A must when in Blacksburg.

Walked in and saw a very very small menu and got a little concerned, but don't let that alter your decision. Easily the best fried dumplings I've ever had and their Marco Luca soy sauce is amazing. Definitely coming here again.

This little place has become one of our favorite lunch stops. It's in between BBT and Panera, and very easy to miss, unless you're looking for it. I was impressed with the simplicity of the kitchen. It's about the size of mine at home, and very tidy. The menu is easy to figure out, as they offer only a few... More

We love great Chinese (like China town San fran, Boston, etc)) .. Best place in the NRV for dumplings and buns.. The sauce is priceless as is the cost for your snack (3.50$ dumplings and 2.50$ Barbeque pork buns) 1$ Soda. Wish they had rice or a hot noodle, but so happy to have authentic Asian that's good and tasty..
