Frequent diner

My hubby and I frequent this establishment quite often. I agree it has been under construction it seems for the last year or so lol but whenever they finish, it seems it will be gorgeous. Food is delish and prices are not too steep. Nice staff and atmosphere. Love Neil, (bartender).

We've found a new, favorite, Italian restaurant in the heart of Bordentown. We were first attracted to Marcellos by its expansive outdoor deck, but its the food and service that will keep us coming back. From a generous salad, to flavorful chowder and excellent pasta we could taste the quality ingredients and care in preparation. We shared a pitcher of... More

Marcello's recently added a retractable roof to the outside dining area making it much more attractive. Even though it was hot, our server was very pleasant, discussing the specials, and making us feel welcome. We shared a pizza, blistered crust and yummy tomato sauce. Our pasta entrees were all delicious, but we would forgo all of the above for the... More

Two visits within three months. First one with a group of girlfriends. It's a little strange when the owner or host gives you a kiss upon entering. My friends arrived Before me and they were weirded out. Whoever said how perfect the patio is needs glasses. It's been unfinished for months and months. Second visit with my husband and daughter....

Great, fresh Italian food. Innovative dishes with a large variety of choices. Diverse drink menu. Service is always on point, very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. I have the Mimosa ravioli at every visit; the sauce is prepared to perfection. I particularly like how they support local shops by providing their products ie: olive oil from local vendors. A...

Went in for dinner with a friend, we walked over and got seated outside immediately. In every corner of the deck was some sort of celebration! An engagement, a birthday party and a "reunion"! Even with all the going on the waiter gave us equal attention, explained the specials and offered his favorite item suggestions. The food was fabulous and... More
