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.

What a wonderful place that I just discovered! Had breakfast there (fabulous) and took two friends for dinner. Our waiter Malik was so nice and the food was great. Will be going there many times in the near future!

Firstly i would like to say that the staff were exceptional! However I was disappointed with the food. I ordered the Lobster and Shrimp Benedict but it was imitation lobster meat, this was not mentioned in the description and is misleading.

Awesome breakfast, not too much food and nottoo sloppy (like how much, and what, and how it slapped on a plate). But def still good old brunch options we all want. My 1 piece of feedback is that service was prompt, quick, ready at hand all the way right up unto when they new we were finished ordering and eating, waited waited for check. Anyways still A+ for brunch in america.

Marco's is my favorite neighborhood Italian restaurant. I always get something delicious to eat, and there's usually a list of wines at a special price. Plus the service is very good.

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.
