Enjoy fine food

The Sopranos can't get better food. Try it once and you are hooked. Service is first class and Italian selection outstanding.

This is by far the best restaurant in the western portion of Rockland County. The chef/owner is a wonderful host and the food is unbeatable. Make sure you try his lamb and his pastas. You will not be sorry.

We had a wonderful evening the night we attended Marcello's cooking class. He prepared risotto, stuffed eggplant and a delicious desert. The accompanying wine was wonderful, the service perfect, and Marcello is an excellent instructor in the art of cooking. Highly recommend for a fun evening.

This is a classy Italian restaurant. For families, couples, singles at the substantial bar......it has a warmth and welcoming atmosphere. The service is terrific. The waiters knowledgable about the entire menu and specials and can manipulate the kitchen (so to speak) to provide every customer with exactly what they desire. The menu with pasts, veal, chicken, anti pasto, all delicately... More

I have eaten there several times, Dinner out with friends, New Years Eve and Memorial dinners. The food is always great and I will continue to eat there in the future. Marcello is a great Chef and he always serves food the way he would eat it himself.

If great food prepared in the classic way, coupled with attentive, knowledgeable servers is what you are seeking, then you need to visit Marcello's. Food is excellent and the wait staff is very professional.

The food at Marcello's is always very good. The service is also very professional. The ambiance is a bit sedate for me so if you like that sort of thing you should eat here.

This restaurant is super old-school. The food is decent. There is a dearth of good restaurants in Rockland, and this is definitely one of the better offerings.

We have been dining at Marcello's for well over 15 years and consider his restaurant equal to, if not better than, any Zagat top-ten rated restaurant in New York City. Although we're often in the City, we realized long ago that it is not necessary to eat in the City, and instead would rather come back and enjoy the relaxed,... More
