The food was great, the wine reasonably priced and service was good, what's not to like. Easy to get to on St Clair, the restaurant fills up quickly, we were lucky without a reservation to get seated but I would call for reservations when I return to Toronto

We had dinner at this busy restaurant during the week. The place was packed. The pizza is excellent. The calamari was slightly chewy and served over soggy greens. The shrimp in a spicy tomato sauce was served with toasted bread was excellent. The trout served in parchment paper was just okay. Good service. They don't take reservations.

We eat at Marcello's a couple of times a month and we're never disappointed. The staff welcomes you like family and treats you with joyful care. Best pizza around. Welcoming to families. A terrific experience every time.

We had the pleasure of eating dinner here and really enjoyed it. We love trying different Italian establishments and found this one on internet. We started with fried calamari and found it to be very good and the serving was of a good size. Next we both ordered personal pizzas and both of us found them to be excellent. We... More

We were taken to Marcello's for pizza...the best pizza in town...and it was. We were told the wait was to be 40mins....they called us in 10. The four of us chose different pizzas and shared to taste...each one was more delicious than the one before. A few evenings later, we went out with other friends who suggested we go to... More

Marcello's was recommended to us, so we gave it a try, excellent recommendation. They don't take reservations and we can see why (waited about 15 mins), we met people who've been going here for over 23 years, the place was full when we arrived at 7:45pm on Friday and people were still coming in at 10:00. As the appetizer, you... More

I had not been at Marcello's for quite sometime and forgot how good it is. Simple, well made Italian food. They are very accommodating, never refused to bake my fav pizza. Great grilled calamari to share, their pastas are always excellent but I mostly go there for the pizzas. No reservation means that on a Friday and Saturday night one... More

Recommended to this place by a local shopkeeper. Service was great and fast. An extensive menu,pasta and pizza were very tasty and the desserts were to die for. A return visit is planned.

We keep going back because we consistently have a wonderful dining experience on every visit. Last night wehad grilled calamari, a pizza-pocket appetizer that was to die for, a creamed salmon pasta and the house salad, followed by banana chocolate chip cake. The food is tasty, generous portions, reasonably-priced, and the service is always attentive and friendly. I am not... More

If I could I would eat here once a week for sure. All my friends know and love this place too. Their pizza is wonderful (I don't like the toppings to be stingy) and the pasta dishes are to die for!! I alwasy say I'm going to get something new there but somehow manage to always get the Fiorelli Fantasia... More
