Marco's Is Worth A Trip to the West Side

I don’t normally get that excited when Alli and I go to Italian restaurants, but since we started Buffalo Eats I’ve heard only good things about Marco’s Fine Italian Dining. I previously visited Marco’s Deli and loved the food, plus I knew chef Marco Sciortino had some serious chops after watching the Nickel City Chef XII Recap. The restaurant isn’t in the prettiest of places, located on Niagara Street near the Rich Products plant in the West Side, but that definitely doesn’t detour their customers. In the grass “parking lot” across the street we found plenty of luxury cars and inside was a busy crowd on a Friday evening.

When we visited they were in the middle of repainting/renovating the dining room, but otherwise the restaurant has a comfortable/casual atmosphere while still offering formal dining experience. The atmosphere was the polar opposite of what you’d find at Santasiero’s down the street. Our server seemed a little busy and took some time before coming over to the table and taking our order but afterwards everything went very smoothly and she was extremely friendly and helpful during our meal.

To start our meal, there was almost no doubt that we’d be ordering the Toasted Ravioli’s (pictured below) as an appetizer. Deep fried ravioli’s are maybe one of Alli’s favorite things and Marco’s version did not disappoint. A nice crunchy exterior that wasn’t greasy, filled with a good amount of ricotta cheese and served with a side of their house sauce. Nothing revolutionary about the dish but was executed perfectly and exactly what we were in the mood for.
