                                                    Another satisfying dining experience at Marco's. We began with the tomato bisque and the turkey rice soup. We both ordered the carbonara with peas served in a very tasty sauce. As always, the entree portions were ample allowing for further enjoyment is subsequent home meals.

                                                    When making the reservation through OpenTable, there wasn't any indication that there was a limited menu for Mother's Day. Our server, Ben, was energetic, informative, constantly communicated with us and overall, provided good service. However, the kitchen didn't seem to be prepared for the amount of volume that it did. We ordered the meatball app, which consisted of 5, smaller than average size meatballs. They were 'OK'. Each entree came with a salad. It had been at least 20+ minutes for the salad to come out after we finished the meatballs. Ben said that they had only made 35 salads and were in the process of cutting up more lettuce and other ingredients. I ordered the lobster ravioli, my wife and older son ordered the salmon and my younger son and my older son's girlfriend ordered the chicken parm, which by their accounts, were really good and hot. The rest of the entrees were luke-warm, which told me that they had been under the light waiting for the parms to be done and my ravioli were swimming in the lobster cream sauce. I honestly don't think they are accustomed to a full dining room serving only entrees and not just a lot of pizzas. We had read many positive reviews, which is why we booked this for a special occasion. I don't think that we'll be running back just for really good chicken parm.

                                                    Wow, real bad. It started when the waiter saw we were being seated in his section. I think he was already overwhelmed. We had a reservation. Meatballs - stone cold. Dressing - watery milk, underdone ravioli. Super slow service. Table and waiter next to us got into a conversation where it was necessary to drop the f-bomb in front of my wife and child. Happy mother's Day.

                                                    Another fine dinner at one of our favorite restaurants where the cuisine is creative and is made to order with generous portions. One of us began with a heaping bowl of steamed mussels. Good bread aided in sopping up the tasty broth. The other had one of the special soups of the day styled Rosé Soup which was a delightful light and creamy tomato broth with vegetables and sausage. The main course choices were the Bourbon Chicken and Veal Parmesan. The chicken sauteed and served with a light bourbon sauce accompanied by creative mashed potatoes and perfectly done vegetables. The veal is breaded with house made Italian bread crumbs and served over linguini with a rich tomato sauce. Side green salads made a nice accompaniment to the main course. All in all a very satisfying time.

                                                    Another pleasant palate satisfying dinner at Marco's. We began with the calamari appetizer. Lightly fried to a satisfying crispness to the bite accompanied by a nice tangly dipping. For entrees the Alfredo with chicken, the chicken tender and tasty with the perfectly al dente pasta in a flavorful sauce and the Chicken Milanese with a deliciously turned out chicken filet accompanied by tasty mashed potatoes and crisply cooked carrots and broccoli. Flavor delights all the way through.

                                                    Another fine dinner at Marco's. We began with a delicious tomato bisque. We both ordered the Veal Marsala. Generous portions of tender veal in a delicate cream Marsala sauce over fettuccine. A delicious variation on this favorite veal entree. Nicely accompanied by a side salad. The staff is friendly, the owner, Frank, is always warm in his greeting, and the chef continues to turn out excellent cuisine.

                                                    Food was delicious, but service was not great. Very slow. Had to ask for bread. Took 2 hours for dinner.

                                                    We're so delighted to have found Marco's after moving back to the area. It's a wonderful dining experience. This time we began with the Bruschetta which was very tasty. For the main course we each chose the New York Strip which was perfectly cooked to each of our temperature requests. Gnocchi for one of us , mashed potatoes for the other, long with nicely done root vegetables and side garden salads made for a fine meal.

                                                    Absolutely a wonderful hidden gem! We arrived at 9pm and weren’t sure if we would be rushed along and the absolute oppose it was true. The waiter, Alex, was very friendly, progressional and attentive. The owner Frank, was also very accommodating and the food was simply delicious! We enjoyed everything so much, we came again the very next night since we are only here two days. Go! It’s a must

For main courses one of us ordered the Fettuccini Alfredo with grilled chicken; the other the muscles with an accompanying Tuscan salad. A fine and reasonably priced Chianti complimented the meal. First rate all around.

                                                    Meals were all very good, but the lamb chops could have been more tender. Hannah, our server was excellent.

                                                    Not good quality food thats worth the prices. They were very busy and the noise level was quiet but food was not flavorful and one of the dishes came out cold and needed to be sent back. I would not dine here again.

                                                    A splendid restaurant. This time we enjoyed well turned out Calamari Speziato as a first course. Main courses of Rigatoni Bolognese and Veal Milanese were a delight to the palate.

                                                    The food was absolutely amazing. The problem was they ran out of almost everything on there special menu.

                                                    Server and staff checked on us multiple times as things were running a little behind on their end. It did not seem that way to us. Tables are a little close together but we really enjoyed the entrees (tortellini and alfredo) and dessert (chocolate mousse cake).

                                                    The service was excellent! We both had the soups of the day, tomato bisque and vegetable meatball. Both were hot and delicious. My enter was the shrimp and scallops served over linguine. The sauce was excellent and there was plentiful seafood. I had a generous amount and brought half home to enjoy again. My husband had the fillet mignonette served with Bernadine sauce! He thoroughly enjoyed it. We plan to return again soon.

Salads were ample and a good mix of ingredients. The beef filet was good to perfection, accompanied by delicious gnocchi and vegetables. We will definitely return.

                                                    Good it’s outstanding. Fresh and made to order. If you like tortellini, you are going to love the tortellini dish. Cannot wait to go back.

                                                    This is a good place to get some well-made Italian dishes. The service was efficient and friendly and the atmosphere was low-key. Nice night out.

                                                    Food and Ambiance was great for family. Conversations echo through location. Water served in wine bottle not the most appropriate for tables with Children
