We were seated immediately. Shortly our server was there asking if we wanted a drink and answering questions about the menu. We had spaghetti and meatballs which were good, lobster and shrimp over angel hair pasta which was very good, and the minestrone soup which was excellent. Lots of folks were having pizza which we will have when we return (and we will return) with our family. And throughout our service was very good---from the time we sat down through when we received our check. We were neither rushed nor were we waiting; it was just right!

My wife and I had dinner and we had eaten her for a few years, the food is good. This night however we had left overs asked for a too go box. When we left we forgot the bag on the table
my wife realized as she was getting in the car, went back inside and they had thrown away the bag. We were not gone 2 minutes. They didnt come for us or look for us they just tossed the food. My wife was very upset and I had to go home to get ready for work. I called when I got home and spoke to the GM and was told " So why didnt you ask for me if you were there?" I explained why and he is answer was " well you shold have told me then not not, I mean how do I know it happened?" Not a I'm sorry for this, please give us another chance I let him know Id never eat there again and he said Oh Well. And I havent 3 years now. We go to his Brothers Location in Old Hwy 80 Flynn SPrings I still will not be back to this location on N 2nd St

We dine in at Marechiaro's(Mar' Ra Key'ahr dros) at least once a month & get take out about once a week. My wife always gets the Ziti pasta with extra sauce. I suggest their Lasagna or a 1/2 & 1/2 order of spaghetti & lasagna...mmm, yum. They have a decent wine selection as well that complements their dishes nicely. Contrary to another review, I have ALWAYS had very cheerful, courteous, attentive service both dining in by ourselves or a group, or take out service. Atta boys & cheers to the entire staff from the ones who answer the phone, cooks, hostesses, waitresses, to the owners/managemt. THANK YOU, Marechiaro's

This place has been around for at least 40 years - and that doesn't happen with bad pies! You can get anything you want, even if it isn't exactly listed on the menu. The pizzas are always hand made from great dough and yummy toppings that are fresh and quality-made. You can get take out, or dine in for the whole menu which is great when you really want great Italian but need to be home to eat. The faces may be new now and then, but their positive attitude isn't. Cranky servers don't last here. Left over pizza from here is a great breakfast food!
