Everything was absolutely perfect! There were 7 of us for dinner on a Thursday night . There was live entertainment and we all had a fabulous time! From the atmosphere to the service to the wine to the food...absolute perfection. Please try this restaurant on the waterfront in Scottsdale if you want to impress or be impressed.

My wife and I have been visiting Scottsdale for the past few years for Spring Training. We have walked by Marcellino's several times and my wife mentioned should we like to try it; so I made a point of getting a reservation this trip. Upon arrival I asked for a patio table; instead of the lady maitre'd saying she would... More

The food and the service here are excellent. However, they were inflexible regarding substitutions in the meal. They also do not have meatballs or think meat sauces, if that's what you like in Italian. The homemade pasta was outstanding.

We wanted to go to someplace special for two family member birthdays. The ambiance was very nice, and the service was excellent. Everyone seemed to enjoy their meals. However, I ordered Fagottino di Pollo, and I was totally surprised by the serving. It was comprised of two round, golfball size pieces of chicken, prosciutto and fontina along with a small... More

This is the second time we have eaten at Marcellino's, and it won't be the last! If you are looking for a quieter, more sophisticated option than the trendy, loud bar scene in Old Town Scottsdale, please give Marcellino's a try. The wait staff will come around with a demo/desciption of that day's fresh pasta specials, complete with a (raw)... More

Always enjoy Scottsdale and thanks to my daughter and her husband, we found a new restaurant, with outstanding food and service. It was a beautiful night and we chose to dine on the patio, we all had pasta dishes and they were wonderful. I think it was probably the best pasta any of us had ever eaten, I can't wait... More

Just missed lunch by 15 minutes, so we had dinner, which was just a bit pricy (for us). My chicken dish was very good; savory, hot, and tasty. I was a bit disappointed with the bread - the focaccia was nice & soft but the other bread was toasted and just not something we appreciate. For these prices, some bruschetta... More

My wife and I totally enjoyed our dinning experience in this very well appointed restaurant. The food was authentic Italian fare. I do have to say the service was fabulous until we wanted to settle our check. Other than that, the experience was outstanding. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Excellent restaurant with excellent menu options and service. My wife who grew up in an Italian family was very impressed with the food. All of the pasta is handmade and the chef clearly devotes much time and energy into his restaurant. The chef contributes from his own personal garden to the restaurant and the waitress and waiters enjoy their job... More
