I visited Marcello's since my spouse was getting her hair done next door and enjoyed some cold beers and Italian Nachos (super delicious). My bartender, "Adam" was very attentive and very friendly. I strongly recommend Marcello's at Padre Island and will return to have dinner with spouse. Thanks for the service and great food!!!! Arnold

My wife and I have visited this restaurant several times, and we always enjoy the food. The atmosphere is romantic, and the service is friendly and professional. If JJ is there, ask for him. He's polite and attentive.

This place is worth the trip across the bridge from SPI! It has great food and the service was fantastic, ask for Javier! Would recommend the calamari, light crunchy breading and very tender! The Italian sampler was great and their marinara sauce is very fresh! Just a great place with great food!

The food is great and the service is outstanding. Paul and his team have done a great job making this an enjoyable dining experience. Along with the great food and service, there is a nice, romantic atmosphere, often with entertainment, in which we enjoy a glass of wine from their good selection, for a nice evening out. A must have,... More

Last week my wife, brother in law and his wife went and the service was excellent, Scott, our waiter was very professional and pleasant. I had the stromboli and it is the best stromboli I've ever eaten.

My husband and I are locals and we decided to bring our visiting parents in, for dinner. Upon our arrival, we were seated immediately, by a super friendly staff. The managers, Paul and Mercedes, made us feel like we were a VIP table. The appetizers were so wonderful, as were the entrees. We are mainly 'gluten free' and found many... More

The waiter/waitress were attentive each time. 2 different times they had piano music and another time a saxophone player. Beautiful music each... More

Dined at Marcelo's Thursday October 9th. Service was pretty bad. Restaurant was not prepared for guests at all. Another couple got up and left before getting their food.
