The service was quick and easy. Nice fresh salad and garlic bread. Booths and nice lighting make it easy to talk busy or have a lunchtime conversation.

Excellent food here. A mix of tables and booths. They have a large back room for parties. The pizza is really delicious. If you have room for dessert, the cannoli is a great choice.

The food was very good but the service was excellent! They go out of their way to make you feel at home. You immediately realize that they are proud of their food. The pasta was al dente & the sauce delicious.

I love going to Marechiaro's for an early Sunday lunch. The food is always good, whether it's pasta or a seafood dish and it's all reasonably priced. The food and friendly staff make for a pleasant dining experience.
