Very good food and LOTS OF IT!!! No question you will be leaving with a substantial doggie bag, but I don't believe the dog will be having it. The food is too good! ENJOY!

This was a very disappointing visit. Our servers teeth were rotting out of his mouth and he had a very rough approach. His dialogue was condescending and he really had no place to have such arrogance. The food was not great, especially for an establishment that has been around so long. My mashed potatoes were overcooked and the peapods drenched... More

An old favorite for comfort food. The portions are huge and prices are fair. The seafood is delicious and the Italian classics are excellent! This is an anchor of the ocean state!

Basically, if you want a good/average Italian restaurant and want to take home enough pasta to last for a few meals, this is the place. My parents love it. My husband and I think it serves good, consistent Italian but it is not superb by any means. And the portions are just hideous. It's very, very popular, and you'll have... More

This was my second visit to Marchetti's but in some ways very different and better. For one, I went on a Thursday just after 4 PM and there weren't many diners yet. It was a very late lunch for my friend and I. I ordered the fried scallops, french fries, and a side of broccoli because I can't eat cole... More

Had heard of this place before, and all reviews were good. We had reservations for 7pm on Saturday night. We still had to wait almost an hour and the waiting space was crowded. The wait was worth it! Service was friendly, quick and responsive. The wine list was limited but appropriately tailored to pair with the food options. The food... More

Always such a wonderful dining experience with superb food and amazing service. Even with a reservation, you may have to wait a little bit so plan accordingly. By far, one of the absolute best restaurants in Rhode Island.

I wish I had known that even with a reservation you still have to wait over 30 minutes for a table. The salad was great, the pasta was average, the service was good. Prices were good and plenty of food.

We used to go to Marchetti's quite often 20 years ago when we lived in Cranston. Always rock solid great food and huge portions. While the food quality and portions have not changed, the restaurant itself has been renovated and expanded, with more indoor seating and an enclosed outdoor area. Half hour wait at 8pm on Thursday night. We ordered... More

Went to Marchetti's this restaurant is very busy but we'll worth the wait. If you like lobster roll this is worth coming from far away to try. The service is great and our waiter was friendly and comical. Excellent service,portions and quality of food. I've eaten many lobster rolls in my life and Marchetti's by far the best. Also very...
