Marco's Italian Restaurant
Ranked #116 of 210 Restaurants in Dubuque
Cuisines: Italian
Description: Been owned and operated by family generation to generation. Growing up in Dbq I went there a lot for the best broasted chicken, pizza, and lasagna in the area. Going back to Dubuque 30 years later the place has not changed one bit. Same atmosphere, ambiance, and great food at reasonable prices. A mom and pop place not found in tourist attraction brochures - only the locals know about this little gem.

Terrible under cooked pasta and the meatballs were not edible.Met at the door by a very cold waitress who wanted us to eat in the basement. Our waitress was wonderful though.This place is dirty and just plain tired and needs a good cleaning.Italian?Not so much.

The typical Italian dishes made in a delicious way at Marco's is what you get from this restaurant. They are known for their calzones, but offer spaghetti, lasagna, and many other pasta dishes that are large enough that you can enjoy them again the next day when you take home the leftovers.

Ate at Mario's. Pizza had a medium crust, which I like. Also had a big selection of Italian meals. Very casual atmosphere and reasonable prices.

A must try! Their pizza is the best. The ravioli also a must try. We also have done delivery - very fast as well. The hot spaghetti also very good. Great place to take the family!

Family owned, this quaint little restaurant offers a great cozy atmosphere and delicious made from scratch recipes. I love their famous "hot" spaghetti and pizza with hot sausage on it. My wife likes the lasagna among other Italian dishes on the menu. They also offer delivery for the whole menu, not just pizza.
