Once you have made a reservation, "Marchesi" is exactly what the name suggests: a gourmet restaurant; a cute, quiet niche with delicious food served in delicate portions, carefully selected wine, a lovely manicured garden and taciturn service. I see some of the reviews here, and...I am surprised by a few of them. A gourmet restaurant cannot be "good for children," or "good for families" who are out there to get sated to the full, while the kids go running around the place, climbing up and damaging the decorative trees, chasing the cats, or kicking soccer balls, while the parents smoke away indifferently looking as if they have nothing to do with their offspring, or as if they seriously and insolently expect the restaurant to take care of them. I have been there quite a few times during the years with company who loves nice food, nice wine and good conversation, and I have always had a great time. And also learned a few things about good cuisine, when you think of it. Make a reservation, go there for the food and the wine, and you will have a lovely time.More

Good food quality, but very poor service, in terms of time, approach and attitude, not matching with the pretended ‘aristocracy’.

We were two couples both with children and we decided this weekend to Marchesi restorant go over to consume a dessert since we had heard about the interesting cuisine. That day we had consumed lunch somewhere else, so we thought to spend a nice hour...in peace and enjoying outside garden of the restaurant. However they did not serve us any desert, but they even told us that the bar service was closed. Did something similar ever happened to you?More

I had lunch few days ago and the food was very good, environment was very nice and relaxing with light music in the background (the volume should be a little lower but compared to other places in Tirana it was fine) Price-wise it was expensive...but worthy to try it. The only thing that I did not like was billing; half way of the lunch we got a regular receipt for certain items and at the end of the meal we got a handwritten receipt which included the items of the regular receipt with a total more than double. I had a quick look and notice that in regular receipt we had pasta 2 x 350 ALL but in the handwritten receipt we had pasta 2 x 700 ALL. Unfortunately I did not checked other items, I just added a 9% tip and left.More

Delicious. Had the best of time. The garden is heavenly for children to play. The chef came by himself to show us the menu and help us order. We really enjoywd it. Ps. All of the paintings are done by the chef.
