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.

Marcel and his staff catered our engagement party last year and this year we called them back to cater our 175 person Buck and Doe. They served the best dinner buffet we could have asked for! Our guests were raving about the food quality and couldn't believe the spread of antipasto, mains, and desserts that were served. Our guests told... More

My husband and I ate here for a special dinner. When we arrived, we were a bit hesitant to enter from it's outside appearance, but it is nicely decorated inside. We were a bit surprised how small the menu was, and we were expecting it to be more of a high-end pasta house. The food is actually more of a... More

What can be nicer than warm and friendly greeting on a cold and snowy evening? If it is a carefully crafted menu, a handful of appetizers and mains, in a place that is only open for dinner, then most foodies will know they have found somewhere special. We feel this way about Marcelo's, just off the main drag in Cambridge,... More

We actually didn't get the opportunity to eat Marcelo's. My two friends and I were on a shopping trip and one of my friends bought a hat she was quite proud of. We were teasing her. When we arrived at the restaurant the server said something about the hat which made us laugh. He said he would be right back... More

My wife & I frequent this establishment 3 or 4 times a year. Marcelo & Rodi's dishes are well thought and prepared to perfection. Food is fresh, prices are reasonable, the service is excellent & Rodi is always there to ensure your meal is up to your expectations. A great place to enjoy a glass of wine with a above... More

Absolutely fantastic. The pasta was with out a doubt fresh and made in house. Great sevice, nice decor and reasonable prices. Only downside is it would be easy to pass by, in a kind of industrial strip mall looking place. Interior is very nice though. I am in the area every 2 months and will definitely be coming back.
