pleasure 12/31/2011

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. more

I love the omelettes and I LOVE the $12 bottomless Mimosas! 10/3/2011

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! more

A True LA Experience! 5/4/2011

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! more

Delicious food & 'the bomb' appetizers! 8/2/2010

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!\r \r Go now and they will make your day or evening! Pros: Happy hour menu, best staff! Cons: nothing more

Great Resaurat. Great Experience. 8/2/2010

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!\r \r I have nothing but complements about marcos. Great place to dine! and best of all, it created a lasting experience! I definitely recommend.\r \r I gave it a try and I'm ready to come back again. Pros: Amazing customer service, tastful food more

Cool place & delicious Italian cuisines 8/2/2010

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. \r \r 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. \r \r 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.\r \r 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. Pros: great food, nice service, neat & warm place Cons: parking more

Food is amazing. Best place I have ordered from on grubhub to date. Highly recommend. more

Great Italian, Non-Pretentious, Affordable, Their Own Parking. 11/27/2008

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?""\r \r 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.\r \r 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.\r \r 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.\r \r 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. more


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. Pros: Stop reading and go have a great meal. Cons: You're not there yet! more

Editorial review from GrubHub 1/16/2008

This place really is hit or miss. 2 out of 3 times it's fantastic...the 1 is - yikes. Just depends on how lucky you feel, I suppose. more

you feel catered to 4/30/2006

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. Pros: good solid fare, great pricing, fantastic service Cons: small wine list more

Great little gem. 9/24/2005

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. Pros: intimate setting, reasonably priced, ample parking Cons: limited patio seating more

Owner Message

  • 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 friends and the culinary memories of an era long gone.

    Now, 16 years later, a new "Marco's" is born but the philosophy is identical. Marco's Trattoria creates a neighborhood restaurant where: The energy is upbeat and without pretense. The food is wonderful and memorable and prices are fair. Upscale in the quality of ingredients and presentations, yet centering on that original Italian restaurant started so many years ago.

    Stop by Marco's Trattoria to see us today! Join us for our weekly mimosa, wine, and/or lunch and dinner specials.
