Simple menu prepared perfectly. If you love dumplings, hot buns and sesame noodles look no further! The price is great and they are adding some curry to the menu. Very casual setting with a small amount of indoor and outdoor seating. Fast service!

Although it is a small take out type of restaurant with limited seating, the atmosphere was comfortable and welcoming. The Food Was FANTASTIC! I had the dumplings and they were wonderful. The staff was friendly and helpful, even though they were busy. This is a must go to in Charlottesville!

I love this place! It's always fast, the food is high quality, the service is great and the price cannot be beat! Try the cold noodle sesame dish-yummmm! The dinner specials are great too.

Super friendly and fast service. Can't beat the prices. Eclectic atmosphere. I definitely regret not getting the dumplings since this seems to be the best item there. I randomly walked in, so I didn't know better and ordered the cold noodles and the pork bun. The noodles were really sweet and lacked the promised sesame flavor. Also, they tasted exactly... More

For a quick, cheap yet decent meal try Marco & Lucas. The dumplings are great and the cold sesame noodles wonderful.

Chinese on the downtown mall. Stopped in for a quick bite (they are fast service). Found out that there are now yhree Marco and Lucas in Charlottesville- newest is over by UVa on Elliewood. Can only recommend. Good noodles, not expensive. Place to sit down - while not fancy, more than enough for a brea.

Cheap, delicious, and filling! The noodles are good too and the inside is a surprisingly pleasant place to sit and re-group while running around downtown.

Yes, Dumplings! Dumplings have become one of my favorite cravings, especially at Marco & Lucas. This is a small hole in the wall restaurant on the Pedestrian Mall in C'Ville's downtown area. They are delicious and remarkably priced. At the time of this posting, you can get six dumplings and a bowl of cold noodles with peanut sauce for less... More

Wow, yummy "dumplings", and tasty sauce. The "dumplings" are really what most Asian restaurants call potstickers. I was expecting an English dumpling, was surprised by the potsticker, but the taste did not disappoint. You get 6 bite-sized goodies in a tasty teriyaki-style sauce. Quite good.

Thank Philip M
