There are some good dishes and service can be selective Italian.... The Boulognese sauce is excellent. Aloof Italian service. And I've been there many times. Now I go down the street to Salvatore.

Good food and good service, not much more needed. Some attention to the decor and sprucing up would be a little more inviting.

Family owned restaurant with a fair range of dishes that are reliably good. Efficient, friendly service; outdoor seating in summer; cozy indoor seating in winter.

My son and daughter-in-law took me to their favorite Italian restaurant. This is a local restaurant visited primarily by residents around Green Lake and those who appreciate fine Italian food. Two brothers own Marcello's, one cooks and the other works the floor. This is exceptional authentic Italian cooking; pasta was cooked perfectly, sauces were spot on, they didn't load everything...

We had delicious pasta and okay salads, with friendly service, at Marcello's several times during the winter. When we returned in June, they'd shortened the menu (removing my favorites unfortunately). The server was brusque and seemed to make a point of ignoring our table completely. We ordered pastas and salads again, but all the food was mediocre and bland, at... More

This is a strictly average and fairly over priced Italian restaurant. The service and the atmosphere are both nothing to write home about.

Marcello's is one of my first choices for that "where shall we go to dinner?" moment. I love the food there (and we eat out a lot in Seattle), and the service has always been friendly and easy-going. People around us have always seemed to be having fun when we've eaten there (maybe once a month?). Sad to say in... More

We had a trip planned to go to Seattle and decided to go to this place because the reviews of the restaurant were pretty good. First issue, the website listed for this restaurant is not in service. Second, they have an Open Table account that doesn't take reservations and have changed their establishment hours over the past several weeks. Third,... More

I would not eat at this restaurant again. The service was terrible. We waited more than 20 minutes without any service. The waiter was rude and acted like we were imposing by coming to the restaurant. We finally ordered a bottle of wine and our dinner. Again, we waited forever for what turned out to be a mediocre meal. The... More

We had visited before, and were unable to try the Tiramisu as they had run out. Now I understand why. It is easily the best tiramisu I've ever had. One order is large enough to share, but you may not want to!
