The food is tasty! Their sauce is wonderful! The portions are generous and are easily shared when dining with a friend. My friend and I enjoy sharing the salad and spaghetti. The people who work here are friendly and enjoy thei work; some have been there for years. I enjoy this place!

If you want awesome Italian food, staff that really care about you, an atmosphere of being in Mama Lucchesinni's kitchen (in my childhood)and feeling "at home" .... and a GREAT PIZZA,this should be your choice in East County.

Marechiaro's has great pizza if you like it cheesy. The crust is great. Love the sauted mushroom, sausage, onion pizza. The staff is friendly and great service too. The restaurant has a comfortable Italian feel. We have had many family birthday parties there. There is street parking and extra parking behind the restaurant. Well worth the effort!

This is a very good restaurant to eat at, during the weekday. It is very hard to find a parking spot at night or on the weekend. The food is very good, and the piece of the lasagna is o.k. but could be a little bigger. The other dishes are very nice portions.

My entire family has been going to this restaurant for years! Probably at least 25 years. It is an old style Italian restaurant that makes you feel like family when you walk in the door. You want the best pizza you've ever had and you want to have that feel good feeling go to this restaurant!

Thank BobnAnneontheroad47
