I have come to this place for years now and they are very courteous. The staff is just great. The food is really good and the atmosphere friendly. In my last dining experience though I could see that they had little bugs' problem. I hope they solved this because the food and service have always been good.

We were at Marcello's for lunch. Started with appetizers and held off on ordering a main dish. Glad we did. I had the portobello mushrooms with polenta. Outstanding. The mushrooms had bits of grilled garlic and the center of the polenta was a great Italian cheese. Luckily we saved room for dessert. OMG, it was a flavorful layered delight with... More

I was Marcello's very first customer. I think it is 28 years now. It has only gotten if that possible. The food is amazing. The desserts are to die for. When I am NY I always make a point of having dinner with Marcello. Always a highlight of my trip.

Was in town for business and investigated going in to Manhattan but once we realized the cost and time since we didn't have a rental we looked for closer options. This turned out to be a great thing as we found Marcello's less than 10 minutes from the hotel. We arrived around 7 pm and was taken straight to a... More

Good food,modern atmosphere, good service, a bit pricey. I prefer bruschetta over the hard cheese bits served here. It is similar to savini,s in ALlendale,nj. In terms of food and service. Tiramisu was outstanding.

The service here is terrible. When we first arrived we were promptly seated and our drink order was promptly taken and delivered. My wife ordered the crab cake appetizer which was pricey and contained very little crab meat. No one came to ask if we wanted to refill our drink order or our water glass. The fish we order was...

I found this restaurant on TA when looking for a place for 4 couples to meet that was mid-way between our home in Westchester and their hotel about 20 minutes north of Woodbury Commons. Owner/chef Marcello went to all tables speaking with everyone which was very interesting. Extensive menu with lots of great choices. My husband & I shared the... More

We made very good experience at Marcello's. The lunch was very fresh and delicious, especially the spicy pasta sauces. We loved it! The service was amazing and we met also Marcello, who told us a lot of Italy.

There are so few restaurants outside of Manhattan that are worth the trip. I have never had a disappointing meal nor a bad glass of wine at Marcello's. Marcello always uses fresh quality ingredients and makes fairly classic Italian food. It is always my go to place to meet a good friend who lives near by. I used to go... More

The quality of the food along with the service is top notch. I hadn't been to the restaurant in quite some time and many of the same staff is still there. To me that speaks volumes. Won't stay away now that I have rediscovered this five star restaurant close to home.
