We decided to give them a go as we pass by this location a lot. Stromboli is my usual at an Italian restaurant and this trip was no exception. I was really excited that they had green olives as an option for filling and ended...More

We always go on Wednesday night because it’s 1/2 priced bottles of wine. Their Caesar salad is awesome. Always ask them to make our pizza well done and it is phenomenal! Great friendly place. The owners and a lot of the workers are all family.

I’ve never had pizza designed like their cheese pizza. It’s a white cheese with dabs of marinara on top all around the pie. Truly one of a kind and I may be addicted at this point. Just discovered the buffalo wings and Greek salad, as...More

Dough was still gooey...uncooked. Entire pizza was swimming in liquid. Threw every bit out. Never again!

Perhaps we hit Marco’s (now “828”) on a night that was too busy because our experience was fairly disappointing. The pizzas are still incredibly large, but the amount of toppings seems to have decreased. (We added more to our leftovers after we brought them home.)...More

This great place had to chage it's name to 828 Family Pizzeria but it still has the fabulous Italian food and atmosphere of a NY pizzeria. There's another Italian place south on Merrimon but this place has them beat hands down. I had the homemade...More

Stopped in right before closing time for a quick bite to eat. The last customers were clearing out as we were coming in. The staff was super friendly and took our order right away. We ordered a basic pizza and it was amazing. I usually...More

This restaurant was recommended by the Concierge at our hotel. It's a 10 minute drive from downtown Asheville. Plenty of seating. Prices were affordable. Lots of choices for Italian food & pizza. Salad was large and tasty. Full bar.

Stopped in around 5pm and had the place to ourselves. 15 to 20 minutes later many more arrived. Great service and very good dishes. Very good local experience. Wings and garlic cheese bread hit the spot.

828 Family Pizzeria, formerly known as Marco's, continues the family business started in 1933 of cooking unparalleled New York-style pizza in two locations in Asheville, North Carolina. Marco's Great Uncle Patsy started the family's first pizzeria when he expanded the offerings of his ice cream parlor to include the uniquely New York-Italian dish. Patsy's Pizzeria in Harlem originally used a coal-fired oven to create a crust that is thin and crisp on the outside. Today, the fourth generation of pizza-makers in Marco's family continues to use Patsy's recipe and methods to create a dish that is unlike anything else available outside New York.
