Sorry, this isn't my kind of place. There was no real finesse to the meals. I had plenty of leftovers but threw them out.

Veal Sampatico was the best I have ever had. Huge portions, we ordered martinis and they give you a second glass with that filled as well. Bread with dipping oil is a nice bonus. Great atmosphere, great service. The rhode island style calamari is so good.

Great place to eat if you are hungry!! Always have leftovers and the food is excellent. Large expansive menu and diverse. You will find something on the menu you will enjoy. Definitely worth a trip! Family style salad that was already dressed w house vinaigrette and oil and garlic to dip your bread. Always busy but great service. Enjoy!!

I absolutely love their Linguine and Clam dish. Other then when I visited Italy, this is the only place that I can say makes the best dish. This is also my mother's favorite restaurant. Most definitely worth a trip!

I really wanted to like this place. The reviews were great, the menu looked huge, the portions gargantuan. We went on a busy Sunday night right before the line about the door. I ordered the baked seafood and my husband the veal saltimbocca. Came with a family style salad that was already dressed w house vinaigrette. It was fresh and... More

Place is packed and busy all the time. The food and service is great so of course it is. Do yourself a favor and make a reservation but definitely go. Everyone loved everything they had and we had a table of 11 who had all different things so no one hit wonders. The calamari alla mama was great the chicken... More

The food here is good, but not gourmet. However, if it is lacking in refinement, they make up for it in portion size. One meal will often last me 2 or 3 days with leftovers. While I would not say it is a "fine dining" Italian restaurant, it is a great place to go for satisfying food for a great... More

To have dinner at Marchetti's is like going home, for my wife and I, we have lived in the area for over 20+ years, know almost all the waitstaff and the owners are friends of ours. That's not to say that if the food was not good, we wouldn't tell them and you! Over the years, the menu has shrunken... More

Had reservations the other night for 630pm we weren't called until 800pm. Food has gone down hill. very overcooked pasta and very very very over fried chicken. So sad. waitress was wonderful. But, won't be bringing large groups back.

Thank APazzi
