After reading many glowing reviews here on tripadvisor, I greatly looked forward to Marco and Lucas fare. Since we were on a short visit and wouldn't be in that area for a long time, we decided to try several items. Our bill totaled $26. As...More

I love this place. It's a very simple menu. The dumplings are delish and the noodles have a great sweet sauce. As I said, it's very simple. There are only a few things on the menu but it's one of my favorite places if I...More

As a New Yorker and frequent Chinatown patron, I am a dumpling connoisseur (and some might say snob). I always jump at the chance to try dumplings in every town/city I visit. These did not disappoint. We got a quick order for a snack and...More

It is true, the menu is very small. But if you come here, get the fried dumplings! I got both the sesame noodles and dumplings. The sesame noodles weren't really my thing, I didn't realize how strong the peanut sauce would be. However, the dumplings...More

I have been a patron since the hole in the wall location. Simple good food at a low cost. Noodles and dumplings are always there to deliver that great taste.

The dumplings are great - you get 6 to an order and they are cheap! The sesame noodles with the peanut sauce are also great. 3 locations - downtown, 29N behind Chili's and the Corner.

Hands down, BEST dumplings around. Anytime I make the trip over to Charlottesville, I must stop at Marco & Lucas! Absolutely delicious! The sauce is where it's at! Have also tried both types of noodles, and they are good as well!

Although it is not always a great sign when a review begins with the back story, hold on. This couple met in Germany, where the future wife was a Bosnian refugee and the future husband was on a work visa from China. They made it...More
