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.

A neighborhood Italian bistro, nicely decorated, but just a bit shabby both in its physical presence and its food. I had spinach ravioli in pesto sauce. The pesto was very good; the ravioli were soggy and bland tasting. The Caesar side-salad was very ordinary, not a particularly memorable dressing, with a weird "crouton" on top, and a couple of sad-looking anchovies. It was also just kind of slopped on the plate, which was a bit of a turn off. Desserts were common for an Italian restaurant, but looked delicious; I had a nice housemade raspberry sherbert. My companion enjoyed his chocolate lava cake. The restaurant is located right on busy Santa Monica Boulevard and there was a vibrant street scene outside, including a couple of homeless guys who stood looking longingly through the front window at the diners. It would not be a pleasant place to eat al fresco, even though they had tables outside: it was grimy, lots of traffic and sketchy folks lurking. The staff was generally pleasant and helpful. Our waiter was very polite and competent, but spoke rather softly and it was sometimes hard to hear what he was saying over the din of the traffic outside. The restaurant looked like its floors and walls needed a good scrubbing. It could have just been the fact that the lighting was kind of low and made the place somewhat darker than it needed to be, in my opinion. There are many other better Italian restaurants in L.A., I'm sorry to say, and while Marco's was certainly adequate, I'm in no rush to return.

Service was great but the food was bland and left me sick for the rest of the night. I had the poato soup, caser salad, pasta Marco and mushroom lasagna. All were bland and flavorless. Pasta Marco was both dried out but tasted like pasta water. The mushroom was 80% cheese. 7 of the 10 bites I was able to have were 100% cheese. The bread was very good.

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Marco's. Brought my parents when they were visiting. We love Italian food but can be picky about our Italian because we're from New York. The food was great, we had a wonderful server and hostess, and it was an all around enjoyable experience. We felt well taken care of without feeling hovered over or rushed. I got the gnocchi which were cooked perfectly, like little pillows.

Marco's has been around for a long time. From what I could tell, it seems to have developed a deep relationship with its customers and the neighborhood -- and I don't wonder why. There's feeling of genuine warmth from the staff, and a sense that you're truly valued as a customer. In observing the solo diners, couples, and large groups present, I got the impression that they were there to consume that as much as the food. Speaking of food, my clam linguine (the special) was fresh and flavorful, with a bit of an extra tang to it (lemon, maybe?), that made it a little different... and a lot tasty. Their suggested wine, a Napa Sauvignon Blanc, was perfect pairing. I was a happy diner indeed.

Nice waiter, needed music to be louder. Owners there, one guy with grey hair a bit too loud when customers are present.
At the end, suddenly a very tall guy came to the table as we were finishing and said "so what's going on here?" Weird, we were finishing. Odd

Everything was good except the entree I ordered was somewhat blah and needed some seasonings or something. In the description it said that it came with a spicy sauce, a pasta dish that I can't remember the name with garlic, basil and olive oil.

I was looking for a place close The Coast Playhouse and came across Marcos on Open Table. Although it was quite when we arrived, it started to fill out as we were leaving. The staff was very friendly and attentive. My biggest pet peeve when dining out it glasses being empty. This never happened.

I would certainly recommend Marcos to anyone looking for a local place with great authentic Italian food. Although I'm from Long Beach, I would certainly dine here again when in the area

When you eat so much carbs, especially, Italian, you might as well want to enjoy every calorie but the food is not even average to my taste. However the staff was very nice and friendly generally!
