Loved the decor and the food on the buffet was really good. I am a sucker for the hot bread but dang it was good. You will enjoy this place!

“Unbeatable service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

We arrived for dinner around 8pm on a Saturday evening. Very nice atmosphere and attentive servers that were completely patient as we looked over the menu on our first visit. Not being able to make a decision we ordered the Tour of Italy and a pepperoni & a salami pizza.

While waiting we were served sliced, hard bread with the typical oil and vinegar. Personally I'm more of a soft bread and real butter fan myself, but I suppose this is more classic italian.

The chicken parm was pretty tasty with a nice, crispy coating and good flavor. For whatever reason though we just didn't like the Fettuccine or lasagna. I believe it was all well-prepared and simply a matter of personal taste. The fettuccine seemed to have more of a nutmeg flavor vs. garlic - which I imagine leans toward the true classic italian style as well.

Throughout our entire visit we were regularly checked on by our servers. They were pleasant and helpful - not intrusive but very attentive. Some of the best service I've ever experienced from any restaurant - even those charging 2-3x the price.

And to the credit of the staff and manager/(owner?), when it was noticed that we hardly touched the food on the Tour plate they offered to take care of it and took it off the bill. This is without any complaining on our part.

While we can't say that the food was what we were looking for on this trip, we would very likely return to give other dishes a try simply because of the excellent attention to customer service.

“Entertainment & good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

We went on a weekend evening and were able to get a table right away. The service was fantastic and the food quite good - the only reason we didn't give this a 5 is because there's another Italian restaurant in Yuba City with amazing food; however, Marcellos also has a singer/pianist on the weekends whose pretty talented.
