Party of 5 walk-in on a Saturday evening. Nice atmosphere and the food we ordered was delicious. Very tasty pizzas and fuses food dish. By the time we had left to head to a FC game down town the place was packed. Attentive service though we found the server - while likely attempting to be friendly - had an artificial,... More

The food is excellent. Four of us went and had the daily fish, the pizza with goat cheese and eggplant, a steak, and a pasta with vegetables. Everything was great. the wine is priced fairly. the only problem is that they do not take reservations and the place is really loud, there are too many kids, and the servers seem... More

Having dined at this restaurant last Tuesday , I was the person with a bug (still moving) in my salad. It must have taken 10 to 15 minutes for a replacement salad to appear which caused everyone at the table to wait to eat with me. Due to that delay the staff tried to serve the table dinners while we... More

We drove half an hour to enjoy a special dinner with Toronto friends and a special couple from Florida. Besides having bugs in a caesar salad,cold overdone mediocre entries served beyond slow, as if we were individuals dining,to the wrong people and......... NOT accept responsibility is beyond belief. Mistakes happen,but swallowing it and fixing the problems is what he should... More

I was at MARCELLO’S with my wife and two couples. One couple was from Toronto and the other visiting from Naples, Florida. I was asked by my friend from Naples to choose the restaurant and as it was his anniversary, he would treat. BAD CHOICE! All started well and went downhill quickly from there. My friend’s wife who had ordered... More

This is a great spot for a casual meal. The grilled calamari and pizza were fantastic. They also have a patio which is nice for summer dining.

I have the occasion to visit both locations at least once a month and have yet to be disappointed. The pizzas, pastas, specials, appetizers. From the wine to the desserts, this place will make you feel like you're in your nonna's kitchen, enjoying a meal with the family.

Why the lineup? Great Italian food! Reasonably priced! Outstanding service! Fun atmosphere! Looking for all the above - DON'T HESITATE FOR A MOMENT! Some things are worth waiting for, Marcello's is one.

I have eaten lunch here a couple of times over the years and always find the food to be fresh, appropriately temperatured and delicious. I worked in Italian restaurants for years and as such I rarely find Italian restaurants that are worth eating at but I definitely would recommend Marcello's. The quality and prices make this a worthwhile treat. I... More

We have been going to Marcello's on St. Clair for years...the food is incredible! The menu is wonderful and their desserts phenomenal, they make the best tiramisu we've ever enjoyed. Their Fruta de Bosco is also one of our favourites, in all honesty we have never experience a bad meal at this wonderful restaurant. I could truly go on forever... More

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
The go-to area for new business start-ups, the spry and creative persona of the West End thrives along its streets. Its independent boutiques, galleries, restaurants, and shops offer brands that can't be found elsewhere. Buildings with ground floor consumer spaces sport up-top artist's lofts, and the West End attracts artists, designers, and fashion industry professionals to its living quarters. It is in the cross-hairs of gentrification, but still resisting it with ironic relish. Hot deals can still be found here on furniture and knick-knacks,. Its call to culinary glory is in its well-priced homemade Polish food, hosting Toronto's go-to spots for hot pierogis and cold borscht. High Park, the largest green space in the city, is a place for dreamers and poets to wander and rest, not to mention a number of energetic actors staging outdoor plays in the summertime.
