This is a wonderful Italian restaurant on the north side of the city. The pizza and calzones are very good. If you like cannoli, theirs are absolutely delicious.

Great service, got take out but the restaurant looked clean with a great atmosphere. Spices were just a bit overwhelming, otherwise would have given them a 5.

I love Marco's! We love to get the habanero wings. They are sooo good. Another favorite for us is the white pie, add pepperoni. Greek salad with chicken has been my favorite for years! Nice selection of beer and the house wine is pretty good.

We are new to the area and ate here tonight for the first time. My wife had the eggplant parmesian and I had the lasagna; we split a spinach salad. We enjoyed our food. The portions were large. And the food tasted good.

Nice crust with just enough sauce (we do not like a lot of sauce), cheese was good, I believe they make their own mozzarella. We ordered the large 18in with four veggie toppings. Toppings are $2 each, not a total of $2. Pizza was ready...More

We eat here on average once week and would say that they make the best pizza in Asheville. Their desserts are absolutely the best so save room for it.

Marco's Pizzeria continues the family business started in 1933 of cooking unparalleled New York-style pizza in two locations in Asheville, North Carolina. Marco's Great Uncle Patsy started the family's first pizzeria when he expanded the offerings of his ice cream parlor to include the uniquely New York-Italian dish. Patsy's Pizzeria in Harlem originally used a coal-fired oven to create a crust that is thin and crisp on the outside. Today, the fourth generation of pizza-makers in Marco's family continues to use Patsy's recipe and methods to create a dish that is unlike anything else available outside New York.
