We were trying to make a reservation for 12 people and thought that by trying to book 8 days in advance we should be able to get an answer. We were assured by the receptionist that the manager would call us back that evening or the following afternoon No call back so 24 hours later we call again. The receptionist... More

I find the owner very rude and womanizing. The food quality has gone down the drain. Every experience and taste quality is worse than the last. The salad had too much lemon on it and not enough of the other oil and vinegar flavors. The calamari were over-salted & the pasta dish had all the water on the bottom of... More

A family-friendly place that's loud and bustling. It's not the place for a quiet evening out. Really, really hard to hear one another. Husband had the pasta and chicken dish and enjoyed it. Son wolfed down the enormous calzone. I had the chef's salad and it was a sad excuse for a restaurant-quality salad: chopped Romaine, slivers of sliced, processed... More

We love Marcello's as it is great food at a reasonable price. The lasagna is my favourite and we share a salad and my husband and daughter always share a pizza and pasta. Nice wine list too!

Dinner with our son and his fiancé on Sunday Night was very special. Service from our waiter was excellent, everyone's meals got rave reviews and of course the ambience of Marcello's makes it a great place for a casual dinner. Commercial Drive is the cornerstone of Italian Food in Vancouver and there are lots of places to eat, but Marcello's... More

Came to this restaurant only because two others in the Vancouver area were closed and we thought it had a nice Italian appeal and look. It was my wife's birthday and we both agreed to go here with our little girl when looking up and down the street to see what's available on Commercial Drive. We arrived at 715 (I... More

If you are familiar with the Vancouver version of little italy, you should be familiar with Marcello's. This place has a line up of patrons daily and if you pick your spots right, you can get in without a line. The lines are for good reason. The authentic Italian foods are good and the selection of wines is amazing. The... More

We are locals and whenever we need a pizza fix, we head to Marcello's on Commercial. The pizza is truly napolitean style and the mozzarella and tomato sauce they use amazing. the crust in thin and yummy and cooked to perfection! Yes the service is not the best, and you have to wait a while on weekends at peak hours... More
