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

40 minute wait beyond our reservation time. No proper waiting area - crammed in the entryway which was also the corridor for waitstaff serving patrons on the outdoor porch. Porch - late Nov too cold for our party of 4. Finally seated - the single dining room consisted of a single row of tables in L-shape arrangement crammed in alongside... More
