Started with red wine and amazing chewy bread with dip made from roasted olives, garlic, orgegano and chilis, very good. My wife had her "best" ceasar... read more

This place is absolutely wonderful! From the delicious food to the great staff and lovely atmosphere. This is one of the best Italian restaurants I have ever had the privilege of eating at. All the food is fresh with handmade pasta! Mmmmm soo good!

This was our second visit to Marcello's after a number of years and it's even better than we remembered. The location, next to a tire shop on Eagle Street, should not deter you. This food is transcendent. We recently visited Babbo in NYC. This is Mario Batali's high end Italian restaurant and while it may seem unfair to compare a... More

I ordered the smoked porck chop and... More

I came to the restaurant after a long day, and thought with all the good it got I would be satisfied. Instead I was treated with disrespect. Im lactose intolerant and just wanted to ask a few questions to see if they could accommodate my needs, and was answered back with condescending sarcasm by the owner. My associates were quietly...

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... More
