The problem with marble is that it will react with acidic foods. So, if you are doing a pizza with a tomato sauce, and a bit of sauce gets on the slab it will etch it just a bit. Eventually the surface will get a little rougher and things can stick.
That said, I wouldn't hesitate to use marble if I had it. Just be sure that the stones don't have any kind of sealer on them.
