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

Perfect. You will love this place. Had the best tiramisu I've ever had in my life. They even tailor made a salad for me because what I wanted was not on the menu. You have got to go!

Thousand Oaks is a nice town, a bit upmarket but plagued by chain operations. Reading a few reviews of this wonderful restaurant piqued my interest enough to give it a try. For those diners who only gave it four stars or less, they know not of what they write. Probably the review that meant the most to me was the... More

I've been eating in restaurants in TO for over 5 years and finally heard about this place and tried it. The entrees are things you would normally find on an Italian menu but they have a twist. My boyfriend had the lasagne, which he loved, and I had salmon. My salmon was served on a bed of rice with a... More

We arrived at about 7:00 with no reservations just my 98 year old father and myself. The restaurant was quite busy, but there seemed to be a lot of empty tables. It looked like a party of 4 was waiting, but we weren't acknowledged in any way by staff, so I finally asked the party if they were waiting for... More
