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

After dinner at another restaurant and a concert at the Record Collector, we wanted to complete a Saturday evening in Bordentown with drinks outside on a beautiful June night. Marcello's side courtyard looked inviting and we found seats at the outdoor bar. On the chalkboard was "Mojitos" "Sangria" and other enticements. Went for a Mojito and the bartender was totally...

We love the outdoor dining area. The staff are friendly and the food was very good. We were there when they had entertainment on the deck and it was a good time. The only thing that can be improved on are the drink prices. Too pricey for the place.

After having dined at Marcello's numerous times over the years, I contacted the owner Vince to discuss having a family gathering at the restaurant. 25-30 people. Couldn't be any better at accommodating my wishes! Owner was willing to work with MY ideas, not pigeonhole me into any type of pre-established menu. How refreshing for a catering assignment. May I add... More

Hadn't been to Marcello's in a while and wasn't disappointed. It was a Friday and I ordered takeout. Had to wait a few minutes and the guy handling my order offered me a complimentary glass of sangria, which was great. The owner models his pizza on John's of Bleeker in NYC. Parking isn't easy, but it's worth the walk.

What a find. Can't believe how great from the moment you enter this neighborhood gem everything was. The owner Vinnie makes you feel so welcomed. We only wanted tomato pies( like the good old Trenton ones). Without a doubt the best and maybe better than when I was growing up. Started with a stuffed artichoke which was superb. The chopped...

We had gone to Marcello's several years ago. The food and atmosphere was very good, but there was something about it that was a turn off to me. Fast forward 2014. We were meeting friends and recommended Marcello's. Once again, the food, atmosphere and service was very good. When we got the bill, the negative memories I had about Marcello's... More

This is probably the most charming restaurant, classy atmosphere, great staff and excellent food. Greeted by friendly smile from Neil and his staff who are very knowledgeable of the menu and wine list.

For the third year in a row, we came back to celebrate New Year's Eve with friends with a dinner at Marcello's. For the third year we were not dissappointed. We were fortunate to be able to sit at the bar for a short time and enjoy conversation with the talented bartender. We had great dinner service from Chris and... More
