We had a "family style" dinner for 35 people consisting of pasta & meatballs, lemon chicken, antipasto salad and cannoli's for desert. The pizza & toasted ravioli's for apps were very good. The meatballs were tender and the sauce didn't have much seasoning, more of just a tomato taste. Pasta was overcooked and mushy. Lemon chicken was acceptable and cannoli's... More

Bread was a heated up sub roll (they have off site delis so that was no surprise). Scampi special was huge and not really too bad, lots of shrimp, olives, artichokes and garlic. Chicken Jimmy was disgusting. Chicken cutlets swimming in a sickly sweet white wine sauce covered with Birds Eye frozen chopped spinach surrounded with microwaved banana peppers covered... More

Visited here with a large group. Our server was very friendly and patient with us. The arancini appetizer is pretty good and a very generous portion for the price. Eggplant stack was very good. House salad that comes with most entrees is below average and the weakest link of the whole meal. Consider opting for soup instead. Broccoli and Macaroni... More

I'm of Italian heritage and if I'm going to eat Italian at a restaurant, it better be really good....Mom kind of good. Marco's is Mom's kind of good. No matter what you order, it's really good. Chicken Milanese is so good that even the leftovers heated the next day are as good as the first day! I've had others and... More

I was visiting my Italian cousin up in Buffalo (I live in Florida). She took me here and I have to say that I have NEVER had chicken Parmesan that was even CLOSE to this good. My wife had the eggplant and she said it was just "so-so". But MY meal was fabulous. Also, the waitress was very attentive.

First time at Marco's. It was a graduation luncheon. Probably around 30 people in our own room. Service was prompt and food was served family style. Good Italian food and I was impressed by the service. I will definitely go back.

My wife and I have been eating at Marco's since the same location was known as Darone's Fargo Grill. Until yesterday we had always enjoyed it very much. In fact I reviewed it on tripadvisor last June and extolled it's quality. What a difference a year makes. First one will notice the price increases which most restaurants have been doing... More

I ordered the lasagna during restaurant week because the waitress said it is not normally on the menu. It was a great suggestion on her part. Large sized piece with just enough sauce. My friend said her veal marsala was delicious. The only draw back is that is expensive to drink here with dinner. $8.00 for a vodka and Iced... More

We have found Marco's and it is now our special night out destination!! Lots of parking across the street. Just minutes off the Peace Bridge. 1e are huge fans of the "House Soup" Veal Parm and Veal Marsala. Go early as the Desserts sell out before the night is over.

Went to Marco's after the home show. The food was excellent and you knew it was family owned and family cooked. The veal melted in your mouth.
