Very nice

Had an evening meal and found the food very tasty and the service very good. The restaurant seemed quite small. We didn't book but maybe we were lucky and just went straight in. We would return again

Although I had no complaints about the food, I have had just as good in many independent Italian restaurants. We enjoyed it and it seemed quite busy, so I think it must give satisfaction to a lot of the locals.

Went with friends, from the time we entered to when we left nice friendly service with smiles. Very good menu with veggie options, well cooked and nicely presented. A good and reasonably priced wine list and just the place to be after a nice walk around Topsham.

We've been to Marcello's a few times and it's been an ok choice if The Galley is full (you MUST try The Galley). The food is nothing special and it's a cut and paste of every other italian restaurant out there, but it's good for a cheap bit of cheap food serviced without style or passion. However we went again... More

Popped in randomly not knowing what to expect. Waitress was very friendly. Food was excellent and good value. Would definitely go back again.

My boyfriend and I took inspiration from trip advisor once again in choosing Marcello. It was a Thursday Evening that we dined and it was fairly busy considering we arrived quite late. ( about 9pm) The waitress was lovely and very attentive. We ordered some nibbley things to share whilst we waited for our main course. (Olives and cheesy bread)... More

I've eaten here a couple of times as it feels perfectly 'safe' for a lone female diner away from home on business. The veggie options are limited, a little strange (as in not really authentic italian) but never the less tasty, and always cooked to order. The staff are friendly and service pretty quick, even when busy. But it does... More

Absolute little gem! From the welcome on arrival and throughout, to a quality of food that just melted around the taste buds. The restaurant seemed to have an authentic feel, complimenting not only the quality of menu but the high street and quay of Topsham. Without doubt, we will return if able. Truly wonderful
