    As usual DeMarcos delivers a very good dining experience. I have been going there since they opened years ago and it never let's me down.The food is always very good . Solid menu with a nice variety of specials. A solid wait staff that knows what they are doing and do it well. Their grilled calamari appetizer is by far the best …..anywhere

    This place has been around forever & the space reflects it. It looks like it hasn't been updated since it's inception. Service was decent. You go to DeMarco's for the food... which is absolutely fabulous from the amazing Bruschetta through each course to the Tartufo! The Pollo di Lemone (lemon chicken with mushrooms) is so delicious. Authentic old school Italian.

    We had a group of 9, which grew to 11. No problem. Smiles and changes all around. Food was great. Served hot and delicious. Will go back again. Ristorante is located in a small mall. Ambiance goes with that. Hope to go back soon.

    We had dinner at this restaurant and the waiter was very good and was attentive. We started with the fired calamari. The batter was very light and not greasy but it was slightly overcooked. The salad was very poor. The house dressing was too vinegary and salty. We both had veal scaloppini dishes and they were excellent.

    I was at this same restaurant many years ago on a regular bases. They have changed the layout of the dining room, didn't seem as warm and inviting as before, disappointing. Food was still good, very good service.

    It's wonderful to have a restaurant like this less than 10 minutes away! We eat here frequently and have always been happy with the food and service. Our most recent time was Valentine's Day, we had a leisurely dinner, spending over 90 minutes over our meal, even on a busy night. The food was excellent, we shared an appetizer of portabella mushroom with a polenta cake, then my wife had the Sea Bass special and I had the Rotolo from the menu. Everything was delicious. We'll be back!

    We had such a fabulous evening with incredible food (Rigatoni Bolengese & Pollo Emilia - anyone), great service (Alfredo!) and such a wonderful atmosphere. The Manager/Owners are so accommodating, warm and welcoming that you feel just like family. We can't wait to go there again soon!

    This place has been around for a long time and has a loyal following. Our entrees were very good and the portions are large. My only complaint is that the meal seemed a little rushed. Total time in the restaurant was less than an hour..

    We met long lost relatives here to get acquainted, picking this spot because it was halfway between us. I wasn't familiar with the area but picked Demarco's because the online reviews looked good. I wasn't disappointed. We spent a long time in conversation and never felt rushed and dinner was good.
