Busy night. Staff very friendly. Don't go if in a rush. But the streamers are delicious. The chicken Sorrento tastes amazing, and you get get more than your money's worth. The veal scalloppini is crazy tender. But the bread makes everything! Cabby wait to go back!

A group of three couples visited DeMarco's on Saturday evening. What a great experience. We split four appetizers; 2 six slice pizzas, shrimp cocktail and calamari. All were excellent. Probably could have just had the appetizers only. We ordered dinner. I had the veal parm with a side of angel hair. Tasted great and it was an unbelievable portion. Food... More

Very good value at this neighborhood restaurant on Route 5 in Colonie, NY. Very friendly staff. Bartender is friendly and efficient. Note: Many people eat at the bar. Casual, pizza & beer/wine to a pleasant date night in the dining room. A gathering place for families (10-12 people) is not a problem for this staff. Busy but enjoyable on Th,... More

Although the ownership has changed hands a couple of times in the past 40 years, it still serves some of the best Italian food, from a simple meatball sub/fries to a more gourmet veal parmigiana. Great home-made iced tea. Also, the servers are excellent and attentive.

The Tuesday night chicken parm special is great. Nice big piece of chicken served with spaghetti large portions we end up taking leftovers home for a second meal. Plate of spaghetti and meatballs was enormous we could have had three meals from the one dish. Would recomend this place to anyone, but come hungry.

Having moved to the area, and we like no theme/chain restaurants which appear to rule the current landscape we decided to look into this restaurant which has been a landmark for years. We went in and sat at the bar, being bar and not table diners to have a drink and peruse the menu. The barperson, Patty was a joy... More

Our meal was basic Italian dishes- nothing fancy or tweeked to be different. Our wait staff was fast, friendly and efficient. Portions of all dishes were large, providing each of us with leftovers for another meal. On a Friday night , early at5, we enjoyed a nearly empty restaurant. By the time we left the place was packed.

Pass this place on a regular basis, but have never stopped in. Husband and I wanted to go out without the kids on a Friday night, but every place had a wait and we were on the clock. Parking Lot for De Marco's had minimal cars and no wait...should have taken that as a sign. We were seated immediately, server... More

This review is somewhat over due. I've been going to De Marcos regularly for the past two years. It is, without a doubt, my favorite neighborhood joint. There only draw back is, man cannot live on Italian food alone (I'm sure other's will disagree). The owners Patty and her husband are simply the best! Patty is usually behind the bar... More
