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

4 of us from our office went to Marcello's for lunch recently. Even though the location is very non-pretentious (in a strip mall with auto services!), when we walked in, we knew this was something special. The kitchen is open and you can see the chef preparing meals as soon as you walk in the restaurant. We were greeted warmly... More

Wouldn't have noticed this restaurant if one of our friends didn't mention the location. A cosy restaurant with open kitchen concept as soon you walk in. Great service and food with flavours. The bread served while you wait is so fresh.

We discovered Marcelo's by accident, and so glad that we did. The food is authentic and consistently delicious. The staff is extremely accommodating and friendly. We have tried many dishes on the menu and each one has been absolutely delightful. Can't wait to go back. Must try!!

We went recently to Marcelo's with a friend for dinner. The hostess welcomed us with much kindness and showed us to our table. Right away we were served with a plate of freshly baked bread and olive oil, it was amazing. For main we ordered Osso buco with gnocchi (New in menu) and Frangelico. The presentation was mouthwatering and the... More
