I have had better thin crust pizza elsewhere. We were a table of 2, and were seated a couple of inches away from another table of 2. I found this restaurant was loud. If you are on a date and want a quiet relaxing place to go, this is not it.

In my opinion, having enjoyed much pizza around Vancouver. I have to say their anchovy pizza is simply delicious. And my wife always enjoys the gnocchi. Always great food. The service can be wishy washy sometimes but the tall manager guy is always on the ball to cover those services slips that happen. It's also got great atmosphere. Go try... More

For quality and variety of cuisine, Commercial Drive is hard to beat. Marcello's is one of the reasons for that well-earned reputation, and this restaurant itself has quite a following. Afternoons are relaxed, but evenings are busy at Marcello's. Many of the diners are regulars and when you have eaten there, it is easy to see why. If you have... More

Had a late afternoon pizza and sat at the bar. The pizza was decent wood oven quality and quite well priced. Staff was friendly enough although not overly knowledgeable about the menu or suggestions. The restaurant is quite large inside, but a difficult layout to navigate going to the washrooms, etc at least when sitting at the front. Wouldn't rule... More

If I can give this place 0*, I will not hesitate to. We had dinner there tonight and it was disappointing. I ordered a roast chicken which was supposed to be fully cooked came out with the inside raw. I cut a few slices and I noticed it was raw inside. I told the waitress and she never apologized. She...

My boyfriend and I have visited Marcello's countless times and have had unbeatable pizza everytime! The staff including the owner Marcello are always friendly. Spaghetti Vongole is also one of our favourites!

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

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.
