“Pizza with Pride in Castro - GREAT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Marcellos says he bakes with love and serves with pride. Could be, but to me it is just really great pizza in The Castro, just a few steps from the flag. While the pizza is great, and you can site inside or outside on the benches, it is Marcello that makes the whole experience even better.

“Tasty and ready to go!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Always a good variety of pizzas available here, especially fond of the pesto version. Not fancy or frilly, just good pizza.

“A Very Good Choice in the Castro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

This place is true to its location, with a quirky, friendly staff and a glass-lined entryway that makes for perfect people watching.

The thin-crust pies feature a generous layer of toppings and cheese atop a crispy, foldable crust -- the quintessential New York style pizza. We had a spinach pesto slice and a pepperoni slice, and both disappeared in what seemed like seconds.

You'll also find a thicker-crust pie here, chopped into thick slabs. The sauce is sweet, and the crust offers the perfect blend of crunch and softness.

Prices are extremely reasonable and portions large, so you can get a lot of very good pizza for your money here. Highly recommended.

“Convenient place to grab a quick bite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Marcello's is centrally located on Castro St. right off the Muni station. Prices are affordable, pizza slices are generous and there is a nice assortment to choose from. In addition, the menu here is more extensive than the one at "Escape from New York". Marcello's also offers burgers, salads and sub sandwiches and they do a great job catering to vegetarians.

The pizzas are NY style - thin crust and crispy. I ordered the vegetables and potatoes pesto ones and they were delicious. Service is very attentive and friendly. Inside it is rather small but very clean. I will be back again.
