High Price and the LOWEST Quality, also Poor decoration, terrible taste, and too expensive. We will not go there again. It is a Waste of money. Ruined our night.

I had dinner at Marcello's recently This is the third time I have visited this restaurant, the food has always been exceptional. I chose one of the four specials and was totally thrilled. First we had their delicious homemade bread with the best oil based olive tapenade that I have ever dipped bread into (far better than a pesto dip).... More

Nice Italian restaurant with a Chef versed in traditional & modern cuisine. Try his modern take on Caesar salad, very interesting. Be adventurous and try a mix of old & new while your there. Waitstaff was excellent, attentive without being a bother.. Mangia

This restaurant was a real surprise. It is run by a husband/wife team, with the husband as main chef, who makes fresh pasta and bread daily. The meals we had were excellent (seafood), and the portions just right. The service was excellent as well. The décor is a bit dated but does not detract from the eating experience. This is... More

I would highly recommend this place because the food is very tasty and the place is very quiet with a good location, plenty of parking. Owners are nice, come and talk to you.

I have been to Marcelo's about a half dozen times over the last few years, and the food is always delicious. It is a smallish resto run by a Romanian couple that specializes in Italian food. The prices are not cheap, but the food quality and care in preparation make it a very worthwhile experience. On top of that, the... More

Truly authentic Italian cuisine and ambiance. Chef was kind enough to turn the evening appetizer special, eggplant Parmigiano into a delicious entre at my request. Loved it! Staff was pleasant, courteous and helpful. Clean and quiet. Think unpretentious elegance.

Honestly, my friends and I went to this restaurant because we saw on Yelp that it was one of the good places to eat in Cambridge. Too bad we believed those reviews. Firstly, the prices for their pasta dishes were exorbitant. I could pay almost $30 for a very nice entree in downtown Toronto which would taste totally amazing. The... More

I've now been to Marcelos five or six times and come away completely satisfied every time. Most recently i took two business colleagues for a working dinner meeting. The food was, as always, excellent. The staff instantly figured out we were working and were absolutely unobtrusive, but always available. My colleagues wished their town had a place as impressive. It... More

Visited with a group of ladies for an early dinner and was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere and the food. Great eats, prices a little on the high side.
