Description: Marco's Pizzeria continues the family business started in 1933 of cooking unparalleled New York-style pizza in two locations in Asheville, North Carolina. Marco's Great Uncle Patsy started the family's first pizzeria when he expanded the offerings of his ice cream parlor to include the uniquely New York-Italian dish. Patsy's Pizzeria in Harlem originally used a coal-fired oven to create a crust that is thin and crisp on the outside. Today, the fourth generation of pizza-makers in Marco's family continues to use Patsy's recipe and methods to create a dish that is unlike anything else available outside New York.

“Good Calzone”
Reviewed 3 August 2012

I got the cheese calzone and it was good. It literally just came out of the oven and was REALLY hot. Though the marinara dipping sauce was basically chopped up tomatoes, not really a sauce. This is the first time I have ever had a cheese calzone with riccotta cheese in it and I enjoyed it.

Reviewed 10 June 2012

Not to be confused with the chain of Marcos. It was excellent. We tried the ranch chicken pizza and it was so good. Would go there again for sure. Love Asheville.

Some of the best pizza in town, even if the dough is a bit salty.

“Yummy! Real Thin Crust Pizza & Great Service”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

Go where the locals go! The pizza was flat and I mean truly thin crust pizza. Very tasty. We also ordered garlic bread and it was flat too! The service was the best we had during our one week stay in Asheville. The waiter was helpful with suggestions and we had the most interesting dessert - Porter Chocolate Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting, Really good. Don't miss out!
