Description: 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.

Looking for good pizza while visiting Asheville. We accidentally "found" Marcos and stopped to order a pie. Got an onion and mushroom and it was great. Crust was perfect and the toppings very fresh. Some New York sports memorabilia at their south location didn't hurt either. Thanks folks for a great pizza. We will stop by when we are in Asheville again.

We got into town late tired and cold and saw a sign for pizza and took a chance. The staff was friendly and the bar tender let us sample the local beers so we could pick one out while our pizza cooked. Pizza was excellent and we felt comfortable so it was a great way to start our Asheville adventure. Cold local craft beer, hot ny style pizza, cold winter night.

We have been to most of the pizza joints around Asheville, but when it comes down to it we end up back at Marco's. It is the best New York pizza around. The service and atmosphere are excellent. They have a good selection of local microbrews, and wines. Can't wait to go back.

we have been coming to Marco's for years. the food is excellent especially their calzones strombolis pizza in Greek salads. the owner himself, Marco, will stop what he's doing to greet you no matter how busy they are.

a great atmosphere and truly a great source for food in a local area. don't let the small shopping centerocation fool you. Its a great place.

We got a large pesto pizza to go. It is a perfect NY style pizza. It has thin foldable crust the is as chewy and flavorful as any I have had. If you like this style of pizza, you can't go wrong with Marco's.
