Perfect week night dinner for two

After my husband ate here with friends, he wanted to share the experience with me. We went here for my birthday dinner. The service was perfect and staff was very attentive. ( we had more than two people assisting us) from the appetizer all the the way through the dessert, I couldn't have asked for... read more

A belong to a group which holds its annual dinner here. The owners are very reasonable to work with and offer a very good value with plenty of food at our dinner.

Marcello greeted us upon arrival. This chef really enjoys his work and being with people. We enjoyed the look of the place. Service was efficient and professional. The food was truly fabulous and authentic. I have eaten this style when in Italy on several trips. Not cheap but it shouldn't be. You can dine for a reasonable price by choosing... More

I like Italian food, but I don't love it. But this was probably the best Italian food that I ever had. The food was amazing. I am not giving it 5 stars because our service was really not that good. After we were initially seated, we sat there for a very long time before anyone came over. When someone eventually... More

I cannot speak highly enough about the quality of the food, and Marcello came to speak to us personally about how he trained as a chef in the UK (we were there on business from the UK). It would have been perfect, if not for someone who worked there being a little creepily obsessed with my female work colleague. Even... More

Visited on December 2nd 2015 I gave Marcello's 5 stars because there's really nothing bad to say about this place. My wife and I came here for lunch (with a GroupOn) and were greeted by Marcello himself who was a little frantic about all the "Groupon customers" that were trying to cash in at the end of the coupon's period....

We decided to visit Marcello's during Hudson Valley week when the meals were an excellent value ($20/lunch $30/dinner 3 course). The choices were more than enough where it was hard to make a decision on just one item from the menu. So we all chose different appetizers, entrees and deserts. IT WAS THE BEST ITALIAN MEAL WE DINED ON IN... More

Went out for my father's 65th Birthday with a family of 15. They put us in a private area which was really nice so we can mingle around and talk without interrupting others. Food was tasty, service was very quick and staff was pleasant.

We had been to the Marcello's in Ridgewood before and wanted to try the remaining location in Suffern. The experience was warm and pleasant and why there are many repeat customers. We were warmly greeted at the door by the maître d' and seated at our table and made to feel very welcome. We listened to the specials that were... More
