FOR MORE THAN 30 YEARS NEW CUSTOMERS BECOME BIG MARCO’S LOYAL PATRONS

 First-time customers at Big Marco’s discover authentic Italian cuisine, but the culinary pleasures get better for many patrons who have returned frequently since 1983. For more than 30 years, loyal customers say they have made the restaurant at 274 Fourth Avenue in St. Catharines their dining destination because the family operated eatery consistently serves an exquisite variety of delicious foods in a friendly atmosphere.

MIX OLD WORLD TRADITIONS WITH NEW GENERATION IDEAS

The D’Intino family combines their old country traditions at Big Marco’s with a new generation of ideas to create a successful blend of hospitality and business. In fact, there are four generations in the family operated restaurant; Nona cooks in the kitchen, while young servers take care of guests. You can get a good sense of Big Marco’s successful family business from this online reviewer.

“Our night out at Big Marco’s was amazing, we met the owners and the mother and father were there working the kitchen, the two brothers who own the place found out it was our anniversary and bought us after-dinner drinks. We felt as one of the family, and now are regulars,” says a loyal customer.

Famiglia

VALUE = GENEROUS PORTIONS + DELICIOUS TASTE @ FAIR PRICE

“You can tell that everything is fresh and not processed like other pizza places. The sauce is the best part, authentic Italian homemade. Definitely recommend it! Also a very nice family owns it,” writes another reviewer.

Customers say Big Marco’s pizza that is prepared fresh daily and on site, tastes the best because of the fresh toppings and gourmet choices such as Asiago cheese, roasted peppers, rapini and eggplant. The signature pasta dishes are cooked to perfection with old-fashioned Italian family secrets. Nona makes the hand-made gnocchi, lasagna, and manicotti all with tender loving care.

Taste the variety of Big Marco’s specialties at their Big Italian Antipasto bar on Wednesdays nights. Satisfy a hungry appetite with more than 50 exquisite items on the antipasto table including salads, pizza and an unlimited “create your own pasta dish” all prepared to please the palate.
