Excellent Food

The food I this place is fantastic. The ingredients are fresh and the staff is friendly. The only complaint I have is that they won't sell me the olive oil dip they give you with the bread at dinner lol. I buy a loaf of bread every time I go in to take home with me. If your kids are... read more

Attentive & friendly service, delicious food! Good price for the quality you receive. We loved the grilled caesar salad, the veal parm was great!

I have been going to this restaurant for years and have never been been disappointed. The staff are always welcoming and the food is always delectable prepared. The gnocchi are a must have! Don't worry about the location, it is a must try when in Cambridge. We take all our family, friends and business associates here!

I really enjoy meals at Marcelo's. The atmosphere is quiet, allowing comfortable conversation while we eat meals that have been made with care by Marcel, the chef. Almost everything is made on site, starting with the bread that is made daily. The gnocchi is like pillows of flavor - better than any I have had worldwide. Many would think the... More

Elegant/casual, attentive staff very helpful with wine choice. Delicious food. Home baked bread and grilled Caesar salad incredible. Can't wait to go back and try other items on the menu.

My wife and I were in the Cambridge area this weekend and were looking for something good to eat after an exhausting day. With many of the cheap fast food joints littering the main road of Hespler rd, we hit tripadvisor to see what was close and good. We came across Marcelo's which was a 2 minute walk from where...

Best caesar salad ever! Four of us went here in Feb 2015 for my birthday dinner and it was fantastic. Very pleasant service and a great meal. I had heard that it pricey but we didn't find it outrageous at all. The menu is not extensive but few items done really well is perfectly okay with me.

As everyone says, from the outside you'd never know what delectables reside within. Simply put, it's authentic, home-cooked Italian fare and the owners do make you feel like you've come home for a visit. I made a reservation for 6:00 and the restaurant filled up in short order and with people who are clearly regulars. My spouse and I split... More

Four of us dined there to celebrate our wedding anniversaries on June 12 at a cost of approximately $150 per couple tax and tip in . It was a very pleasant experience overall, the restaurant only seats about 50 therefore your in a very quaint setting. You can actually have a conversation with your party as the background music plays... More
