Good value for Topsham

Great little independent Italian restaurant with a lively atmosphere and good value. Definitely advise booking in advance on busy weekend nights as it's a popular choice.

Italian should be safe and it is here. Small town, everyone should have access to a pasta place. Quiet during the week, busy on week-ends

My friend and I went into the restaurant on the off chance of getting a table,we were lucky. Friendly waitress and good service. Food cooked well and very flavoursome and hot, we both enjoyed our meal. Drawback toilet facilities up a long flight of stairs.

The food was good. But now that I write the review there is absoloutly nothing remarkable or interesting here that sticks in my mind. Yet another cloned Italian restaurant. Strange as I am normally able to write long reviews. Would have scored higher elsewhere, but there are some exceptional restaurants in Topsham. One point though – may not suitable for... More

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.

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

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
