Went there for nephew's HS graduation. The service was really poor and they were busy! Waiter forgot my sister-n-law's iced tea and her appetizer. When we said something, our inners were coming out and then they brought the appetizer! My veal parm was just so-so....Very pricey and this time nit worth it I know Marcello is selling the restaurant but he needs to keep up the quality and service. Next time my family suggests we go there, I'm going to tell them I ant to go to a different restaurant.More

Big Disappointment on an Important Night hadn't been here in a number of years, but decided to revisit for a small gathering yesterday celebrating a very significant birthday for a family member. Marcello's was a disappointment on many levels. When one calls for a reservation...a few day in advance to get a nice table for a birthday dinner, you would think they would let you know that the main dining room would be closed for an event and the only seating was in the bar area with no tablecloths, etc....they chose not to do that. Terrible action. The food was also disappointing. One item needed to be send back to bring it to proper temperature. Another veal item has to be completely remade due to it being tough, i.e. difficult to cut with even a knife. In fairness,the chef/boss come out and was moderately gracious and agreed to re-make the ailing item. It was better the second time around. The portions were modest size at best. Nothing was even close to exceptional. And it is a fairly expensive place. The service was okay at times. They made an effort...cut our birthday cake for us (for a fee), sang 'Happy Birthday', snapped a few pics for us when requested. But then they would disappear. Three times I had to get up from the table and seek someone out so we could order coffee, ask for the check, etc. The place was very quiet ( now I know why), so there is no reason not to have wait staff close by. They certainly weren't busy attending other patrons. We didn't let all of this ruin our good time, but it could have been so much more of a memorable night for the family.More

Other than the atmosphere which was nice and the people who were nice, this was not a good food experience. The menu was pedestrian and the food served was not very good. They seemed to be trying but unfortunately did not succeed.

Superb Italian - adaptable to Gluten Free. We had a superb meal. I had Gluten Free Spaghetti with white clam sauce, my wife had the fried cauliflower over arugula. Delicious. Then spaghetti and meatballs for her and Deboned Chicken thigh over pepper, sausage and balsamic...ragu. Just wonderful. The chicken thigh adapted for gluten free was terrific. My wife said it ead the best spaghetti & meatballs and ever had.More

It just happened to be the Saturday after Valentine's day that we were in Suffern, NY. We arrived around 7:30 and were seated immediately. The entire wait staff was friendly, attentive and professional. Though we did not partake of the Valentine's Day specials our meals...were fabulous. We sat at a table past the bar, not in the main dining room and the atmosphere was casual elegance. The owner came out to speak to us and ask how we enjoyed our meals. The entire experience was a very nice surprise. I highly recommend Marcello's Ristorante.More

I think Marcelo is an outstanding chef. He is extremely detailed in the presentation of his food. There were a few people that looked like regular customers; as Marcelo stopped over at the tables to converse with them. He eventually came over to my table...briefly and we exchanged pleasantries. Other than that, the atmosphere inside the restaurant was a little to “stuffy” for my liking. However, it would not be a fair critique on the food itself; as I thought most of the dishes my family and I ordered were beyond what an average Italian restaurant would offer you.More

I was one of Marchellos fist customers over 30 years ago and he has never disappointed me. Food is always fresh, and different along with his choice of fine wines. He did surprise me this time as he has changed it to a more casual...atmosphere from the white formal white cloth table cloths, but don't let that fool you. You won't be disappointed as the service, food and atmosphere is still Marchello.More

Enjoyed the great food. I had two appetizers for dinner: Speck (Italian Smoked Prosciutto) With fior di latte mozzarella, roasted peppers, Sicilian caponata and tomatoes and Grilled cauliflower. My cousin had Panko Crusted Boneless Pork Cutlet topped with prosciutto, Burrata cheese, served with vegetable farrotto....(A grain from Italy prepared just like Risotto). We shared a Panna Cotta for dessert. The service was excellent,it was an enjoyable dinner,would definitely return.More

I don't think so. There is a separate room though. Would be a nice place for a party though.
