The food here is delicious and inexpensive, made fresh for you. Steamed buns, dumplings, noodles are all excellent. A nice alternative to more expensive places on Main Street and the food is wonderful!

Charlottesville, especially downtown, has a large number of high priced restaurants (only some of which are worth the price.) If one is budget conscious, choices are a bit more scarce. Marco and Luca has been a staple for the budget conscious who want to sit down in a clean environment and have a meal that will satisfy. The menu is... More

This friendly little noodle shop understands that it's better be to good at a few things than mediocre at a lot of things. The menu is small but full of great flavor -- I've eaten here twice in the last month and absolutely love their sesame noodles and steamed veggie buns.

Quite simply the best spot for a light lunch or a quick snack. The dumplings are to die for. Meaty. Piping hot. Great sauce. Equally as good the noodles. Spicy peanut sauce, fresh cucumber.

My son and his wife found this place when they were students at the University. My son just had to go back. He has talked and talked about the yummy dumplings and he was right. They are delicious. The dumplings were small, filled and well cooked- and so delicious. The pork bun was delicious as well. I WILL GO BACK!

Simple menu prepared perfectly. If you love dumplings, hot buns and sesame noodles look no further! The price is great and they are adding some curry to the menu. Very casual setting with a small amount of indoor and outdoor seating. Fast service!

Although it is a small take out type of restaurant with limited seating, the atmosphere was comfortable and welcoming. The Food Was FANTASTIC! I had the dumplings and they were wonderful. The staff was friendly and helpful, even though they were busy. This is a must go to in Charlottesville!
