If you want to taste Italy without getting on a plane, go here!

I go to Italy every 12-18 months (I have been there a total of 21+ times). This place has AMAZING food and I feel like I am at my cousin's house in Napoli eating there. The tastes and the people are just like Italy. I will be coming back here for more soon as I am always in the hunt... read more

Stopped in for a sandwich, porchetta and picked up a bottle of wine and desert. The porchetta was amazing! Even my girl liked it. I'll be back to try the restaurant.

Owner on premises to meet and greet. Nice Italian specialties. I particularly like the lasagna with a hard boiled egg inside.

Anything on the menu is always fresh and homemade! I love their lasagna. Nice wine list too. Small with excellent service.

This used to be a special occasion restaurant for us. Sadly our most recent experience there was not positive. Our waiter was arrogant and seemed to have better things to do. The menu was overpriced for the quality of the food. My cappellacci tasted and smelled of freezer burn.

I have not had a bad meal at Marcello Restaurant. It is one of my favorite Italian restaurants in the area. They have a good selection of wine and their dinners are very good. I have not had lunch there. The service is excellent. It's a wonderful restaurant to relax and enjoy a great meal with a glass of wine.... More

We went here because of previous TA reviews. And while it does not replace going to Italy, this is a wonderful ristorante with an large and interesting menu. Our server was knowledgeable and efficient, every dish served to our party was a winner. The only real complaint is servings were sufficiently large to render us too full for the enticing... More

We found the food excellent, hot and well seasoned. Service was very good and the noise level acceptable. All in all a very good place to eat in Thousand Oaks.

We were looking for a local, family-style Italian restaurant, and some friends recommended Marcello. The food was very good, generous portions, though (happily) not the normal huge American portions. Quality beats quantity every time ... My sold criticism about the food: the shellfish should have been better rinsed as one of my vongole clams was gritty, and sadly in one... More
