We decided to try Marcello's. It's obviously a well established neighborhood place. The restaurant had four or five men in suits as servers. We really didn't want appetizers but the server pressured us. I thought that was very unusual. Not what I expect from a restaurant in this price range. Same thing happened with dessert. The server's charm turned off... More

This restaurant was on the hotel's recommended list, we selected it quite randomly but we were so pleased by our choice. Not only did they have the standard menu, they also had their daily specials menu. The waiter was so knowledgeable about the menu and described the options in such an appetizing manner! Three of us selected the grouper done... More

Had to be in Suffern NY for a wedding. Went a day early to make a long weekend. Found this place through trip advisor and enjoyed it thoroughly! The service and food was outstanding. There was a piano player there during the evening that was also excellent. Would absolutely go again if ever in the area.

Marcello's is celebrating their 30th anniversary this month and have a fixed price 3 course menu for only $30. We've been to Marcello's many times over the past 15 or so years and have always had excellent meals. I thought that the portions for the fixed menu might be small but I was absolutely mistaken. They are large size and... More

My wife and I have been have dined at Da Ninas for years. We always noticed Marcellos restaurant which is on the same side of the street as Da Ninas, but never gave it a chance. Can't tell you why because we always heard good things about it, and always saw it busy. Finally last week we decided to give... More

A bit pricey for me. The portions are quite small so I leave a bit hungry after my appetizer and dinner. Ambiance is good. Service excellent. Next door is Da Ninas which is cheaper, bigger portions and just as good.

We were all sad from the wake, but Nino the Waiter cheered us up > then the food arrived and we we felt that it was one last gift from our... More

It has been a while since I visited Marcello's with my friend but I do recall how welcoming and gracious it is. The food is outstanding and is served with style and care. I highly recommend this restaurant. Pricing is in the mid/upper range but you can find entrees at $15 or so and well worth it. I doubt you'll... More
