I have driven past Marcelo's almost daily. I had previously assumed it was a lunchtime Italian takeout sort of place... some of which can be very good. But, I had never stopped in. It's nestled in a strip plaza with several automotive shops. A friend and business associate had mentioned Marcelo's to me on a couple of occasions... raving about... More

This is one of our favorate restauarants to dine at. The food is great, the home made bread is a must and you can buy a loaf to take home. The price is reasonable. Don't miss dining here !!!!

We had a large group for dinner. They opened just for us. Nice touch. You could, however, drive by this place and miss it every time. Outside it seems unappealing. Inside it has that Venetian old world plaster look. Staff very nice and attentive. The bread was excellent, a good sign. The apps were well presented and didn't let the... More

Its unfortunate that the extremely blue collar, under educated folks in this city get to write reviews on restaurants of this caliber. I find it to be fantastic that a restaurant like Marcelo's is still open in a city that clearly doesn't get his level of cuisine. I wish we had 265 more restaurants like his so there would be...

I have been to Marcelo's multiple times over the years. The decor is timeless and warm and you are always greeted with a smile. The food is amazing, everything is home made which might be considered out of date in a time when most food is processed.

There was a lot of great reviews for this odd ball restaurant, located in an auto mall. Once you get there you are seated, you will find gaudy chairs, with retro European tacky decor. There is definitely an expire date and it has passed. The menu was almost as tired. Time for an overhaul, maybe call Ramsey for help here.... More

There is a lot of care going into the dishes at this place. Not many of my friends know about Marcelo's, It's in an odd location. Once you do find it, it is a keeper. I have been maybe three or four times in the last few years. Not a regular night out, but for something different, the food is... More

We went there with some friends and everyone was impressed; from the homemade bread served with a mixture of olives and olive oil, to appetizers, to main course! I had mussels for appetizer, good size portion and unforgettable taste! For the main course I had the special which was LAMB. Absolutely delightful! I couldn't finish it so the friendly host...

Being brought up in an Italian home, trust me, I do know Italian homemade food! And at Marcelo's in Cambridge,I have found it over and over again. I have been to this restaurant so many times, I've lost count. I never had a bad experience at Marcelo's in all these years. Moreover the chef/owner continues to impress me each and... More
