This great place had to chage it's name to 828 Family Pizzeria but it still has the fabulous Italian food and atmosphere of a NY pizzeria. There's another Italian place south on Merrimon but this place has them beat hands down. I had the homemade...More

This restaurant was recommended by the Concierge at our hotel. It's a 10 minute drive from downtown Asheville. Plenty of seating. Prices were affordable. Lots of choices for Italian food & pizza. Salad was large and tasty. Full bar.

Stopped in around 5pm and had the place to ourselves. 15 to 20 minutes later many more arrived. Great service and very good dishes. Very good local experience. Wings and garlic cheese bread hit the spot.

I came in tonight just searching for some White Pizza, ToGo. There were two bartenders - One of whom I ordered from - and they both made sure I felt at home while waiting for my order. I had a delicious Valpolicella red wine, while...More

While the salad and service was good, the pizza was just okay. Soggy crust, raw onion...not the great pizza we heard about that led us to drop in for dinner.

Marco's is a great, down to earth, Italian eatery. While I especially love their pizza, I also enjoy the Stromboli and well everything else that I have tried on their menu. Very notable is a pizza called "Robbins." This is arguably the best pizza I...More

Marco's Pizzeria continues the family business started in 1933 of cooking unparalleled New York-style pizza in two locations in Asheville, North Carolina. Marco's Great Uncle Patsy started the family's first pizzeria when he expanded the offerings of his ice cream parlor to include the uniquely New York-Italian dish. Patsy's Pizzeria in Harlem originally used a coal-fired oven to create a crust that is thin and crisp on the outside. Today, the fourth generation of pizza-makers in Marco's family continues to use Patsy's recipe and methods to create a dish that is unlike anything else available outside New York.
