Good stuff

The renovation is finished and Marcello's is better. A bigger, brighter space does not necessarily mean better, but in this case it does. Vincent, the owner, walks the grounds like a warden, but a friendly one. He clearly cares about his place and the service. Our server was young but earnest and... read more

I am a regular customer at this establishment and was highly disappointed at my last visit on Sunday 1/3/16. Every time I come here, I come with guests. Me and my girlfriend came and decided to have some sangria. While there I ordered the lobster ravioli which is one of my favorite dishes at Marcellos. When I got it I... More

We were warmly greeted by the host. And we ate at the bar even though we were offered a table. Brian is a great bartender. He's right on you with the service. The pasta fagioli was very good. The arancini were good but on the salty side. The calamari with marinara were okay - nothing extraordinary. The calamari batter was... More

We've been to Marcello's a couple of times before, with mixed results. Now that they've finished part of the renovations that have been underway for some time, we figured we'd give it another shot. There were a few tables in the front having drinks and some in the back eating. It was 2 pm on a Saturday. The bar was... More

This is a very pleasant atmosphere and improvement over a dated space. Looks spectacular. Our food was very good. The prices are too. You would pay double in nearby Princeton and you would wait an hour for seating plus free parking. Here you can relax and enjoy yourself. The waitstaff is friendly but maybe they are still of the old... More

Went to Marcello's because we heard about the renovations. Staff was friendly but the servers needed more training. They were out of a good portion of the specials and Yards Beer on tap was gone. I had the butternut squash tortellini which was good but was $24.

Food is average for the most part. Some items are excellent, like the Brooklyn pie. Pasta is generally overlooked. Ravioli are pretty good.
