Easier than a trip to Tuscany

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... read 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.

We visited Marcelo's because a friend we were with wanted Italian food. It was busy - requiring us to take the second sitting on a Thursday night. I think the ambience at the rear part of the restaurant would be better than our table by the front door. The exhaust from the pack of smokers outside the front door wafted... More

I could not tell you how amazing the Caesar salad is, home-made dressing and the taste put together yum! When I go with my husband we cannot share it, its that good I need my own. Every time we go we are welcomed with a big smile and receive amazing service. The menu is never the same, which is a... More

We've been going to Marcelo's for a few years now. Always good food, excellent service, quality/price ration really good. Hand made pasta, olive bread to die for, all dishes prepared to order, hand crafted. The chef's creativity is apparent and it reflects in any dish on the menu...they also accommodate special requests within reason. Good place, good food.

Went there with two kids, really attentive to them and a vegetarian. Great food,try the mussels. There was almost enough mussels to make a meal for one. The kids had the special which was a hamburger, which they enjoyed. Quick service, friendly atmosphere. Closed on Sundays for functions, call 3weeks in advance to book.

I recommended this restaurant to a group of friends and truly regret it. We had a reservation for 11 but notified the restaurant the day before that it would only be 10. When we arrived a few minutes before our reserved time we informed them that it would now be 9 at which point they cleared away 2 spots. All... More
