The food at this restaurant was good. Nice options for a light dinner or a full meal. The service needs to be better. Lots of waiting in between courses, attentiveness to clearing plates and filling water glasses needs work. There seemed to be a lot of staff yet no one seeemd to be paying attention. Not cure if it is... More

Stuck in a hotel because of a rained out softball tournament, we ventured out......Soooo glad we literally stumbled upon Marcello's Resaurant. A most pleasurable experience from the captivating owner to the waitstaff, to the most delicious Italian food you will every have! Fresh ingredients, homemade bread, pasta. The sauce was true Italian, just like my grandmother from Naples, Italy! No... More

This is absolutely, hands down, the best Italian food you will ever eat. I have never gone to this restaurant and not fallen in love with a new dish. Their sauce has the perfect consistency and amount of sweetness. The bow tie pasta is always my go to dish (salmon, scallops, and bow tie pasta in a paprika cream sauce--yum!).... More

Almost always get to-go or delivery but have dined in the restaurant a couple times. Food tastes fresh, is always hot and is always very good. I also order items to serve during the holidays. I've ordered stuffed artichokes, potato cakes, rice balls, and their stuffed bread. All items were thoroughly enjoyed by all. Service is friendly and they aim... More

Being new to the area we placed an order for delivery one night for a quick bite to eat. We didn't know that we would be eating the best pizza we have ever had that night! We were absolutely delighted with everything we ordered! The stuffed garlic bread is amazing and the pizza has the best tasting tomatoes and the... More

Downtown Bordentown is a nice place to spend an afternoon as I did recently with a girlfriend. We enjoyed a walk on Farnsworth Ave to visit some of the shops and galleries and then a pleasing fresh AHI tuna lunch salad with crusty bread and olive oil dip. Worth the calories and then some. We usually head to Princeton but... More

I went here again after 15 years with family and friends as a send off dinner for my overseas stay in the Far East. We were greeted and seated immediately and one waiter poured wine samples for everyone. Then were given menus but had to wait nearly 45 minutes for another waiter to come and take our orders. Then we... More

We just finished dinner at Marcello's in Bordentown. The only reason that I didn't give it a "best meal ever" rating is because that is a ridiculous question. Most people taking the time to review have had many exceptional meals. TA should strike that one from its survey! What is appropriate to ask for is a critique of our experience... More
