Sunday Lunch
Marco and his beloved ‘mamma’ opened a small trattoria in West Hollywood in 1993. With a lifelong passion of hospitality and a deep love of the food from her Italian birthplace, they created a neighborhood trattoria and pizzeria that spun over a decade of fabulous ‘home cooked’ foods, wonderful loving friends and the culinary memories of an era long gone. Now, 22 years later the relocated Marco’s has the same philosophy. Create a neighborhood restaurant where: The energy is upbeat and without pretense. The food is wonderful and memorable. The prices are fair and value driven. Our menu and diverse wine list have been created to offer a vast variety of comfort food flavors spanning the culinary globe. Upscale in the quality of ingredients and presentations, yet centering on that original Italian restaurant started so many years ago with a single ideal.

Food and service were very good. I didn’t like the “B” rating.

Marcos has been in West Hollywood for many years. The menu has largely remained the same and the food uninspired for the most part. The pizzas are good but I had soup that was watery and flavorless; a salad that was only somewhat better. The shrimp did not smell fresh. Service was very good.

It’s just a shame that we weren’t able to honor our reservation after open table glitch , calling the restaurant twice , etc. At any rate we do like Marco’s , but someone needs to get on top of their computerized system so this doesn’t happen .

We went for dinner. Nothing was particularly good. My wife's salad was so poor she hardly took a bite. My caesar salad had little taste and the crouton was tough. My chicken "marsala" sauce was thin and watery and only had a ghost of a marsala taste. The chicken itself was edible but should have been pounded thinner. The restaurant was out of the gnocchi so my wife ordered ravioli which was alright. The seating inside was comfortable. There is also an outdoor patio which is inviting. Though the value and prices are reasonable the restaurant does not rise high enough to be an attraction.

Consistently good food and free-flowing mimosas! I usually get the steak and eggs but tried the eggs benedict this time and it did not disappoint.

Marcos is always a great place o meet for dinner. The food seems a bit different this time. The quality was nice but the flavors were changed in the Mac n cheese and croutons way too hard. Otherwise, Marcos is a nice place.

Excellent French toast and Chicken crepe were our Sunday brunch entrees. Perfect cooked including potatoes. Only drawback was the side order of bacon was a tad overdone unlike our last few visits here. Parking can be tough. Had bottomless mimosas though I stopped at 1 and a half. Service was attentive and reserved a-table at Open Table. We went to Hollywood Farmers market first and then here driving 42 miles from Orange County.

I've been eating at Marco's since we called it "Mama's" (there's an article about her just inside the door) and it was across the street many years ago. Love the food. It's cute and can be good for romantic or just-friends. One of my first favorite restaurants when I moved to L.A. and it still is.

It's a very bland décor with tables very close to each other. The focaccia bread they give you to start is tasty and fresh with good flavor. The pasta was overcooked but the sauce was fine.

The food was ok, not great. The beet salad was pretty good, but the garlic cheese roll did not have enough garlic or cheese and was kind of hard. My friend's sausage and peppers was good, not great. The service was good. Food didn't take a long time to come out and we seated immediately (we had a reservation). Nice ambiance. Not too loud. I would give it between three and four stars

Overall a good experience, it was Valentine's night, glad we got a spot for a reservation.

I think I've learned though to order from the regular menu instead of the specialty menu. We decided to try the Valentine's menu which consisted of a rib-eye, pork chop, and something else. I elected for the rib-eye, and it was tough even though I ordered it medium rare.

Wish they would sell full bottles of wine too instead of half bottles, it's not very much.

Overall, good experience though, just will order from the regular menu instead next time.

Everything was wonderful . The service was excellent. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. The happy hour appetizers were tasty. The grilled salmon was perfect. The rib eye steak with red wine sauce was delicious. The spumoni dessert was just the right balance of flavors. We are looking forward to returning soon.

Marco's is always a treat, especially when we're in the mood for Italian comfort food. The warm, hospitable service, the cozy ambience, and especially the expertly prepared food, combine for a lovely dining experience. This visit was no different: we introduced an out-of-town friend, who visits LA a couple of times yearly, to Marco's, and I'm certain this will not be his last visit, either. The food is great, the services is warm, friendly, and professional, the portions are generous and the prices are spot-on for the neighborhood. Oh, really nice wines, too! Treat yourselves - mangia!

We stumbled upon this hidden gem while visiting West Hollywood. The menu has the standard Italian fare but feels like home cooked and portions are amazing for the $$! Great casual dining (alone, date or with family) with super nice staff.

This is a classic neighborhood spot - warm, friendly, and the most unpretentious place you could imagine.
I just love coming here with friends on the weekends (most especially for the Sunday brunch mimosas!). Incredibly wonderful staff (witty, easy-going, attentive, and SO NICE) and Marco's is great for people watching if you sit outside.
