Marcello's food is pretty solid. We were a group of eight people and everyone liked what they had. Pizza is obviously the main selling point and there are quite a few choices available. It wasn't the greatest meal of my life, but I liked what I ate. Service was fine - nothing special but fairly friendly. He did try to... More

Pasta cold, service fair to poor, the only really good thing was the water. Have been here many times befor but not for a few months... Has it ever gone downhill!

Hit the place just before 6:00. 15% off food ordered before 6. Had the fried calamari for antipasto. Lightly breaded and nicely cooked...not not rubbery at all. Great taste...almost a full meal for 2! Then had a Forno pizza. Get the fresh mozzarella. Great creamy taste. And you'll have take home! We'll be back.

Sadly, this place upset our whole evening. It took way too long to get our food & when we did get it, it was the wrong order. This place is surviving clearly only because of its location.

We arrived tonight to a full restaurant, as expected on a Saturday. There was, however, room at the pizza bar, which we elected to take and were looking forward to. We were sat by the friendly hostess and given menus. The couple after us were also sat next to us at the bar. We waited... and waited... and waited to... More

I came here for dinner on a hot Friday night. The restaurant was mostly empty, I saw maybe 5 small tables max. Even so, apparently they had run out of menus! I'm guessing they had a large party hidden away somewhere for this to happen, but no excuses were made by the staff so I'll never know. Sat down for... More

I was here with a large group and we just ordered a bunch of items and shared. Salads, pizza and pasta. Good wine. It was all very nice and tasty nice. Love the pizza oven! There is also outdoor seating too which should be nice for the summer.

Fun spot and very hardworking friendly staff. We ordered the prawns in cream sauce and focaccia which is really pizza bread slices perfectly baked. Nice size prawns. Delicious! Too much sauce so we added it to the clams in clam sauce and canneloni with cheese and spinach. Very good.

Staying in Commercial Drive

Neighborhood Profile
Commercial Drive
Commercial Drive, also called "The Drive," comprises of twelve sauntering blocks of modest and unfussy counter-culture. Straddling the line between sophisticated and unadorned, it is favoured by students, artists, writers, designers, and start-ups, and suffused throughout with a healthy off-beat counter-culture. The kind of neighbourhood which well-springs thought-revolutions and has the odd bit of self-aware graffiti, Commercial Drive has resisted gentrification in favor of continuing to build a thriving den of affordable multiculturalism. Once known as Vancouver's "Little Italy," it has also been the immigration point for Guatemalans, Hondurans, and Portuguese to the city. The resulting hodgepodge makes for poetry readings in espresso cafes, social debates in early-open bakeries, and eco-activism posters pinned up in the many multi-ethnic markets in the area. Commercial Drive is where you go to feel like a local, and if you have them, bring the kids – The Drive has a number of bookshops, toy stores, and attractions to get them involved too.
