My wife and I were walking on Commercial Drive when we came across Marcellos. There was a line up (good sign) but we got a place at the bar, in front of the wood fired oven. There was great energy in the restaurant from both the staff and the other guests. Love the oven. Lots of place say they are... More

Marcello's has traditionally been where I go when I'm in the mood for comfort food, particularly some combination of 'just-a like-a mama's' lasagna, gooey-cheesy gnocchi, fresh house-made focaccia and tomato & bocconcini salad with gorgonzola cream. Sadly, my last experience there this month will be just that - my last. I've recently been diagnosed with food sensitivities (allergies), which has... More

Thin base and well cooked . Abundant topping and well flavored. Be careful ordering wine as expensive wine sold in a glass will end up been cheap wine not worth drinking. Recommend that you choose your own at the bar and do not rely on the waitress to chose it for you. We were charged full price for our meal... More

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!
