Very pleasantly surprised to see such a wonderful Italian food and friendly service with that special Italian touch. Enjoyed every dish. The server knew every dish so well as if he cooked it. Very rich decor done tastefully; it is also very cozy. Street parking could be a challenge but side streets are good place to park as well. I... More

Soup of the day was delicious and the Gamberi y Cappesante was very nice. The meal broke down on the sides (e.g., none for the seafood entree) and the bread - which... More

Ate there once had a fillet of beef melt in your mouth. My friend had chicken parm with angel hair pasta which he also claimed was delicious. Parking could be a little tough. The owner takes real pride in his place.

We have been wanting to try Marcello's for a long time, finally went Sunday 2/19/17 at 4:45 without reservations which was actually a very good time to go, we were pleasantly greeted at the door and seated right away. The waiters and the rest of the waitstaff were all very friendly & courteous. Very personable. The food was amazing. Marcello... More

I hosted a year end office party and could not have been happier. Marcello is always a fantastic host. The food was fantastic, as always, and the staff could not have been more accommodating. Lloyd made wonderful wine recommendations to accompany our meals and the overall experience was superb. That was an evening my office will not soon forget. Thanks... More

Authentic Italian restaurant with delightful, tasty food. The best part was the exceptional personal attention by the server - he may have been the owner to pay such a great attention to customer. Appetizers were very unique and delightful - for example, fried ball of risotto stuffed with cheese and fresh tomato sauce was amazing. Very large serving, tasty food... More
