It is pretty nice friendly busy place in downtown Northbrook. The food is different story, all entrees and appetizers we tried over last couple years are average. However, the claim to fame is pizza, and it is good. We prefer thin crust gourmet pizzas. Tried several, and all were flavorful, and good. Service is friendly, and prices are adequate.

Love the super thin pizzas and the broasted chicken but the prices are way to expensive for what you end up with. 16 pieces of 'chicken only' is $34 after tax, a thin 18" pizza with one ingredient is in the $23 range and that one ingredient is hard to find. A four piece chicken vesuvio dinner is $18 and... More

we go here twice a month. all the food is delicious but our favorite is the broasted chicken. they have 3 or 4 different kinds but the garlic broasted is to die for, we don't get chicken anywhere else, it's always lively and most of the time we go for dinner it gets really crowded early so get there early....

Love the thin crust pizza and the broasted chicken. They also have a great party room for banquets. Staff is friendly. Great place!

Our family dines here with some consistency. The servers are nice, the food is good, the prices are reasonable, we see our friends from the neighborhood, its just one of those places... not stellar, but certainly solid and well-rounded. Also, they have a great party room next door for special occasions. We recommend it!

My wife and I tried Marcello's in Northbrook after a very good experience in the city. We had the exact same thing, a Caesar Salad and a thin 1/2 Cheese 1/2 Sausage Pizza. The salad was very good, but the pizza lacked something. The flavor was just not the same. It may have been the fact that the oven is... More

The food and speed of service - good. We have been bringing groups of 10 to 25 people to their restaurant for a few years on a regular basis. We asked for separate checks in the past with no problem. This usually comes out to one for each two people at the table. The person in charge tonight told us... More

Primarily restaurant but has a bar. TVs on the wall for sports fans but not too many. Excellent pizza and chicken. I like their Buffalo chicken but all are good. Side choice is potato wedges or grilled veggies. I think the potatoes are too dry so always get the grilled veggies. Plenty to eat--can take some home for the next... More

My two sisters and I visited this restaurant. We started off with cosmopolitans which were a special that night. We ordered an all vegetable salad, a pasta with mushrooms and tomato sauce and their specialty - chicken. They were very gracious about splitting the food onto three plates for us. It resulted in perfect portion sizes for us. And the... More

We ordered and had pizza delivered. It was quick and do good. Gluten free was very good. Did what they call their deep dish. It's more like a thick crust. We also ordered a regular thin sausage and green pepper. Good flavor.
