My husband, daughter and I went to this restaurant last Saturday. We love Italian food. Had not been there in about 30 years! We were disappointed. The appetizer was good (Mussels in marinara sauce), but only two out of 3 meals qualified for "fairly good" (veal limone and the rigatoni with sausage). The third meal was quite bad - Broccoli...

Our neighbors recommended DeMarco's for dinner. It was awesome. Great service from Jerry! I had the gnocchi and meat sauce. Delish. My husband had the raviolis and meat balls. We will definitely go back.

Only been for lunch many times, great Italian offerings. Nice breads. Specials always enticing. Parking is very tough, but worth it. Service is a bit slow but ya it's Italian.

Very nice place to try. Service is friendly and quick and all wearing ties! They have the little extras that make this place special. Pricing is competitive and portions are large. Parking can get tight as the lot is shared with other businesses. Home made tiramasu was great! I recommend this place for your dinning enjoyment. 😉😉

I used to live near this area and always wanted to eat here...great place, atmosphere, employees, and the food is phenomenal! If you like bread pudding, you have to try it! It was out of this world! I will definitely go back to DeMarco;s the next time I am in the area!

Really good authentic Italian cuisine. Decorations are ok but the good food makes up for it. Its just not a good location. But once you are inside as long as you don't mind paper over the tables you will do just fine here.

Good food and great service. The place is nicely located in a visible spot. The restaurant would however need some remodeling to look a little more up to date. And I would get rid of the paper table cloth as they downgrade the whole eating experience.

Authentic and delicious are the words that best describe Demarco's. Fine food combined with caring attentive service makes this a true go to spot.

One of the best Italian family resturaunts. Walked in on a Saturday evening and it was quite busy around 6pm. We were seated immediately! Waitress was so nice and prompt. She helped us order and made suggestions. No kids menu but there were small portions of all dishes. Kids got to order Alfredo and shrimp, spaghetti etc. I thought the... More

This is a family favorite and a local gem. Even if there is a dish you are craving that is not on the menu our server made it happen to satisfy our craving! There are featured items, great appetizers and the soup is homemade - fresh daily! I typically order fish or chicken and have not been unhappy. We always... More
