It was a cold and rainy night, so it was perfect to sit near the pizza oven at Marcello's. The food was excellent, plentiful, and delicious. The fresh baked focaccia with balsamic vinegar and olive oil was to die for. The caprese salad was yummy with tasty, tangy capers. I had the parma pizza as a main course, which was... More

Last week I went to Marcello for the fist time and, as I am Italian, my expectations for the dinner were high. We ordered pizza,pasta and gnocchi to share (portions are generous) and all the three dishes had a very good taste! The restaurant was very nice, looked 100% Italian and had a very nice atmosphere! I recommend it to... More

Wow, this was so excellent. Petra P was an excellent server; food was very plentiful, served quickly, hot and fresh. A romantic, old country feel, not exactly intimate though. Because we were there before 5:30 we received a 15% discount. Strongly recommend.

sadly, after the lunch I had today....it won't be happening again....and I am going to tell my friends not to bother. I arrived full of anticipation. I haven't been there for quite some time and was fanticising about what I'd have before I arrived. On many of my previous visits, I had loved the salad verde dressing so I ordered... More

I have been visiting this restaurant frequently through the years and always found a high quality standard for the food and a very friendly service. The pizza is truly Italian with a thin base. Anyone who prefers a thick dough a cheese roll around the pizza is better off in Pizza Hut. When the weather allows it one can sit... More

Went on a whim as we explored Commercial Drive looking for Portuguese Club that was closed. The marguerita was all ice so my wife wasn't a happy camper. The seafood pasta was just ok as was my Classico pizza. $55 bucks all told was quite underwhelming. Not value and experience for $$$s.

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.
