My wife and I decided to try this restaurant out as many people had raved about it. No we did go in with high expectations but they really did not come close to being met. The service was great, the atmosphere was also really good and wine was excellent. Where I was disappointed was the food. I had the veal... More

I would not ever go back here and I would recommend that you do NOT waste your money too!!! I went here with a co-worker for dinner. We ordered soup and calamari for starters. They were way too salty and I can take a fair amount of salt... could not taste anything. After that we ordered Veal Parmegian and Alla... More

It's our first time, we didn't know that Cambridge has such Italian fine dining. I am not gonna say much, but i guess I just need to explore more for Italian food. I had the ala Vodka shrimp, or the first one on the menu list, it was fetuchini with shrimp. But for me it was too salty and wasn't... More

I never write reviews, but Marcelo's is so deserving of high praise. Don't be fooled by the exterior, it doesn't begin to hint at the fine dining experience waiting for you inside. My husband and I have been coming here for years. I have never been disappointed in the food, and our recent visit was no exception. Front of house... More

This is such a nondescript-looking place from the outside and the inside is sparsely decorated but the food is outstanding!! Limited menu and everything prepared fresh and in house!!! Awesome meal and not a wallet breaker. Would definitely go back and if you are in the Cambridge/Waterloo/Kitchener area, you should book a reservation at Marcelo's!!!

I love eating in restaurants but rarely am I ever wowwed because I'm picky. Marcelo's wowwed me. I started with the Caprese Salad and it was the best salad I've ever had. I was expecting the usual sliced tomatoes with sliced boconcini cheese, but what I got far surpassed my expectations. I was served large chunks of luscious buffalo mozzarella... More

This was a wonderful meal. From outside you would think you were entering a dinner but inside it is like Italy.

Not even "jet lag" from a long "work vacation taking care of family" can stop you two from delivery yet again, an AMAZING "OLD SCHOOL" Italian dinner for us. Walking into a reservation only packed Friday night, you still managed to find room for us and serve us another INCREDIBLE meal! We started off with the "Capri" which was out... More

An absolute MUST if you love authentic Italian. The owner was hand taught by a couple of old Italian Mamas who imparted their love and respect for the craft that is Italian Cuisine. And he has become a master. Do not let the location keep you away. It is situated on Busy Eagle street, but has lots of parking in... More
