I love this place! When i'm in the mood for Italian food this is where I go to even though it's like 15 miles away.All their food is home -made so it does take a little while to make but it's worth the wait because you know it's all fresh. The chicken salad and garlic knots is my favorite combination of food.

I had the pleasure of feasting with the owner at this wonderful neighborhood restaurant. We sampled a variety of dishes of which none were disappointing.

Not only do I love Marco's for the delicious brunch with amazing omelettes. . .the fact that they now do bottomlesss Mimosas everyday is great! I also have to say the service and management is very friendly too. I highly suggest Marco's for brunch or even a nice Italian dinner too!

It's hard to even describe our experience at Marco's! It was our last day in LA from NYC and my boyfriend picked Marco's for breakfast before we headed out to the airport - one thing we could never figure out while in LA was how to really see the Hollywood sign (from the best view, not any view). As NYers, we don't do touristy gimmicks. After breakfast which we both loved (please get the coconut and banana french toast) we chatted up George, the manager, and Marco himself. We told them how much we loved the food and everything about the place and asked about the best driving route to see the sign. The next thing you know - Marco himself drove with us to explore the "hills" and to see the sign from a view little known to anyone but those who have lived in LA for decades. We were in awe and amazement. This stuff doesn't happen anymore and we are so honored to know Marco and to celebrate his restaurant. We are coming back this summer!

I've been going to Marco's for 10 years now and they had been excellent as far as everything you would expect in a restaurant atmosphere. The staff is super friendly, the atmosphere is awesome (not to mention: Happy Hours are the best to go there with your friends), and the food is just scrumptious!

Go now and they will make your day or evening!

As I walked in a friendly smile was waiting for me to be seated. Got some yummy bread, got some super yummy food, and ended with a super tasteful dessert!

I have nothing but complements about marcos. Great place to dine! and best of all, it created a lasting experience! I definitely recommend.

I gave it a try and I'm ready to come back again.

Pros: Amazing customer service, tastful food

I came to Marco's a while ago for breakfast and had "Marco's Breakfast." It comes with a great amount of food. I am very impressive the way they presented the food. They just make the breakfast look a little fancy, but the price is still decent. btw, I especially like the bacon and sausage.

A few days ago, I came to this place again with my friends. We got some pizza to share and other entrees. I like the Pizza Mamma. The pizza is full of small pieces of chicken with cheese and tomatoes on the top. Moreover, the pesto gives more flavor to the whole pizza and makes it taste less greasy.

I also got Melanzane Alla Parmigiana for myself. It is fried eggplant layered with tomatoes sauce. I got this because I LOVE eggplant. However, I was worried that it might be a little greasy and too salty, but it turned out pretty good. I think this dish look like lasagne, but it just replaces pasta with eggplant and brings out different flavors and textures. Also, the presentation of food is good.

I also like the simple space design which makes the whole space warm and neat. The service is good as well. The atmosphere is also very comfortable to chat with friends. The only problem is parking because it is located in West Hollywood. I was lucky to get a free spot on the street, but a friend of mine took a while to find one.

Don't be fooled by the run-down exterior; the property will probably be demolished soon and Marco's will move across the street. Marco's food is good, the bruschetta is great. I usually get take-out because the space is small.

I've been going to Marco's for some 15 years now, beginning when it was run by Marco's mother. She would seat us as if we were guests in her home. Although "Mama Marco" (as we always call her) is no longer with us, I still feel her presence every time we enter the restaurant. Water, foccacia and menus all show up almost as soon as we're seated. "May I get you a beverage?" is one of the first things we hear. No "my-name-is-Steevan- and-I'll-be-your-waiter", but instead a more-personal "how are you this evening?"

From the fresh foccacia with tomatoes, then to minestrone soup and Caesar salad, and then the main course (hmm...what tonight? Lasagna? Pizza? Ravioli, spaghetti, chicken piccata?) Everything I've ordered is delicious, which makes it hard to decide. I often choose lasagna bolognese - I love lasagna but it's really time-consuming to make at home, and this is probably better than mine anyway... Their portion is so generous that i often take half home and have it for lunch the next day. My boyfriend loves their meat ravioli in bolognese sauce, always asking our waiter for "extra, extra" sauce.

Last night it was pizza - medium crust, "Mama's Special". Really delicious, very filling. After soup and salad, we couldn't finish it and took half home - which we reheated and devoured for a midnight snack.

Everything - bread, tomato sauce, iced tea, tiramisu - tastes freshly-made. That's why I could eat here a couple of times a week and not tire of it.

L.A. may be a food 'scene', but Marco's isn't part of any 'scene'. Good food, made from scratch, with a warm staff. It's like eating in my grandmother's home, but without the guilt.

Pros: Delicious, fresh food. Free parking (!!) Relaxed, unpretentious. Small and intimate. Patio available.

Cons: Landlord (Walgreen's) wants to tear down and build a drugstore, so no improvements to the premises for a while now.

Looked at countless reviews to find good pizza last night, then stumbled on this place. I'm sure glad I did! Had a 100% great experience. Great people - Great food - Fair Prices.

We finally tried Marco's after having been by it a bazillion times. Walking in you immediately think small, but warm and cute. The menu offers something for everyone, along with a list of pasta dishes that are a twist on standard italian fare. I really enjoyed the spinach and roasted garlic ravioli, and my boyfriend gave a thumb's up to his Lasagna (one of about 3 on the menu). He was so busy eating, it wasn't easy to communicate. Splitting a salad, a bottle of wine and a dessert, our meal was barely $50. How often can you find that in L.A.? We will definitely be back to work our way through all the great offerings. The best part was that we were treated as best clientele by everyone, and always with a smile.

We decided to try out Marco's due to it being convienantly within walking distance of our new place. We ended up there during late-breakfast/early-lunch hours, so there were only two other parties there. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful and the food was impressive. We decided on lunch due to the time, but cannot wait to go back to try their breakfast menu. If they can hold up their quality of service during peak hours, this can easily become a favorite.

Had to try this place out because of the praise it received here on CitySearch. Good Italian food is tough to come by in this town, and Marco's lived up to its rating. Everything was loaded with garlic and absolutely delicious. I was especially impressed with their sauteed mushrooms in butter, white wine and garlic! My carryout was ready upon arrival, and everybody was so nice! I think I finally found a new favorite Italian spot!

Marco's is by far the best Italian restaurant in L.A. Marco, Gyorgy and the rest of the staff all go out of their way to create a memorable dining experience. Italian favorites served with flair, everything a good value. Very friendly and unpretentious. Great outdoor patio, perfect for warm summer evenings. Bring all your friends!

After a long day of driving with no air conditioning and getting heat stroke, I couldnt have picked a more welcoming and accomodating place than Marco's. I was sicker than a dog - and Marco along with the rest of his staff did everything in their power to make me feel better - from getting me water and hot tea, to filling rags with ice to put on my head, to driving my boyfriend around LA to find a place to fix my air conditioning. 2 hours later I was feeling better - boxed up my ceasar salad, and ate it in the car later! It was delicious. THanks Marco for all of your help. Without you I probably would have landed in the hospital. I rate Marco's a 10!!

There are a few Italian restaurants that I can think of where the food and the service were both top notch. Yet this place has both without having an expensive price tag to go along with it. What a wonderful place to just go dine at or the take a date to. If you haven't been to Marco's yet, make sure you check it out. You will not be disappointed!

I went to Marco's for the first time a few weeks ago and fell in love with it. Located in a small strip mall, one would not expect the high level of friendly service and delicious food. The waiter was so sweet, he gave me a glass of wine from his personal collection. BTW, you can bring your own wine and they won't charge you! The food was wonderful; fresh, flavorful and served piping hot. This is one of my new favorite restaurants.

marco's is a neighborhood joint that looks non descript in a small strip mall. from the moment we sat down, to the moment we finished our meal, we were impressed. the food was delicious, prices were very affordable, but most importantly, the service from everyone was impeccable. they were friendly, curteous, knowledgable, and didn't make a bunch of noise when clearing the table (my pet peeve). we will definitely be back on a regular basis.

Marco's doesn't serve the best Italian food I've ever had, but it's a solid neighborhood place to eat. The prices are reasonable, the service is good, and the food is decent.
The complimentary focaccia + bruchetta topping is a definite plus. I also thought my penne arrabiata was pretty good. Nothing fancy, but a decent, satisfying bowl of pasta. My friends weren't impressed with the spinach lasagna and the pizza they got, but they weren't bad--just not exceptional.

I have a very short lunch break. I have lunch at Marco's about 4 times a week. Their $5.25 lunch specials include a large slice of pepperoni pizza, a Caesar salad a fountain drink (refillable). With the $7.95 specials you get a soup or a salad, a main course of 7 choices (including Spaghetti with meatballs or a lasagana) and the focaccia bread and their fantastic bruschetta tomatoes. A full meal for $7.95. Where else can you find that? They have a great roast beef sandwich either with fries or salad for only $7.50. They have fried calamari, fried chicken tenders and you have to try the fried cheese ravioli (all for $6.95). You can be done in 30 minutes the most.

I visited Marcos on my trip to West Hollywood last month. The place is nothing fancy, they dont use expensive table and silver ware and its only paper napkins, but its great food at very affordable prices. Its fast, the service is friendly and excellent. I had breakfast and dinner there. With Marcos breakfast, for $9.75 you get so much food, you cant even finish everything. The eggs, bacon sausage were all cooked right. The pancake was delicious, too. You cant beat this. Their thin crust pizza is absolutely fantastic, even for a New Yorker, like myself. I will go back when Im in LA again

The couple who gave them 4 must have had them on a bad day. I love the frittatas there. The chicken and asparagus and the salmon and spinach frittatas are killer. I yet have to find a place with better frittatas. My pancakes were great, too. Fluffy, tasty, looked good. Chcocolate chip pancakes with strawberry topping is fantastic. It's very reasonably priced and you don't have to wait in lines. I can't ask for more.

When you cannot get to Rome by 8:00 pm, and there's no Italian relative at home to cook for you -- the next best thing is to drop in at Marco's. I say "drop in" because this cozy, friendly, food-festive restaurant will soon become a favorite hang-out -- and the "back-up" of choice when you don't want to risk a bad experience in a more expensive zip code. Where else can you walk out after 90 minutes and only 30 bucks for 2 -- without gambling in the desert?

My wife and I recently stayed in Hollywood and used citysearch to find a good breakfast place. We had a mediocre fritatta and cappucino. We ordered blueberry pancakes that came out rubbery and tasted wrong! We sent it back. As we finished, we heard people at another table commented to the waiter "this coffee is not good". Maybe their lunch and dinner are better as other reviewers attest, but we weren't going to take that chance. To their credit, the restaurant and staff are indeed friendly and helpful.

What a charming little place! I went there with friends. We had a thin crust Mama's Special pizza for appetizer. These guys really know how to make pizza. I've heard that this is one of the best pizzas in the area. One of us had a New York steak. It's not a steak house, but the steak was just perfection. The Chicken Involtina was mouthwatering. The 4-mushroom lasagna is out of this world. You gotta try it. Even their simplest dish, the spaghetti marinara was fantastic. They make their own marinara and bolognese sauce and they're the best! For dessert you must try the Zuccotto. You enter heaven once you had one. Their house wine selection is limited, but you can bring your own bottle. The service was impeccable. The waiters are all efficient and charming. I've gone back a few more times and the experience is always the best.

Marco's has the best Italian along with the best prices that I have found in LA. I felt like I was eating at my family's house, the only thing missing was Uncle Paulie and Aunt Josephine.

Deelish Food; Staff! Never a wait! Patio offers a nice view of coffee-goers at Buzz!! Their breakfast menu will surprise you; chocolate pancakes topped with a whipped cream smile face are my fave! For dinner, I highly recommend the Chicken and Peppers (Special Menu Selection). Many dine there alone; it's a fun place to meet people.

This summer, when I visited LA, I went to Marco's Trattoria 2 times. After having had the greatest frittata for breakfast there, I just HAD to go back again for dinner, next day! Being a big (and experienced) fan of Italian cuisine, I can say that, both, the pastas and pizzas are excellent at Marco's, not even speaking of the great desserts... And, in addition, all this is accompanied with the kindest possible, and most efficient service. I had a great time there, and I will definitely be back at Marco's every time I go to LA!!!

And, in addition, all this is accompanied with the kindest possible, and most efficient service. I had a great time there, and I will definitely be back at Marco's every time I go to LA!!!

I've been going here for years and I love the place! Great food and a fun atmosphere. Good prices too and it's rare to have to wait to be seated. Keep an eye out for Marco -- it's family owned and he's a great guy. Ask for the specials you you go, they are delish.
