Natives, ex pats, and the hotel all recommended this restaurant and it's certainly for a good reason. The server was friendly and helpful. He made sure we didn't over order food and recommended some wonderful options. All the plates were beyond adequate to share.

We went to Marcelo's in Puerto Madero at 8:00 pm and were the fifth table taken. By 9:00 the place was full. Being only moderately hungry, on the advice of the waiter, we ordered one dish to share, the fettuccine del mar along with a bottle of Argentinian Pinot noir. The plate was easily big enough for two to share.... More

A friend in Chile recommended that we try Marcelo. We were pleased that our trip route allowed to have lunch there. Meals and service were excellent. It seemed to be a favorite location for an upbeat crowd of business professionals and sophisticated locals.

I was here a few days ago for a business dinner with my team. We walked though Puerto Madero looking for this neat place. The walk was well worth it. A coworker and I shared the Risotto all Milanese with Ragu. Simply delicious! We complemented our dinner with a decadent tiramisu... can't go wrong with that!

This restaurant is simply great. Food is very good and portions are enormous. The service is very attentive and the only problem was that it was a bit too noisy for my liking. Apart from that the restaurant is great.

I had a business dinner here as the guest of two business partners. The more senior of the business partners knew the restaurant well so he ordered for all three of us. We started off with an excellent octopus appetizer that melted in your mouth. We then moved on to excellent seafood pasta that was accented with a cheese infused... More

Superior Italian food in a beautiful restaurant. The fish I ordered was so fresh and flaky I would order it again and again. My friend had the seafood pasta and loved it. Highly recommended.

Grilled squid was extreemly tender and the fettucini with cream sauce and bacon for 2 feeds 3 and does so deliciously -- must go. Great area and beautiful restaurant, definitley worth every calorie!
