Absolutely enjoyed the items we sampled off the menu. The house-made dipping remoulade for the bread is exceptionally good and can be purchased at the neighboring deli. The pasta dish I tried was one of the lightest I can recall eating with an outstanding sauce. The calamari are tender and very lightly battered. We will definitely be back on our... More

Marcello has been on my list of restaurants to go in Thousands Oaks since I moved here about 13 years ago. I have lived in 6 countries and traveled all over the world. Marcello brings that close to family feeling every time I visit. The service is always great, the food very tasty, and the prices very reasonable.

For entrees in the 18-25 dollar range, one expects a better culinary effort. My linguini with clams was tasteless; my wife had the Scottish Salmon which she thought was fairly good and nicely presented. Not impressed and would not return.

We checked Trip Advisor for suggestions, and decided on this restaurant, which was in walking distance of our hotel. We were greeted by a charming host, who seated us and got our drink order. Our waiter was also charming, with a lovely Italian accent. We ordered the calamari appetizer, which was outstanding. My husband had the special, penne with mushrooms,... More

Excellent, homemade delicious food with white tablecloth service and good wine. We shared an amazing butter lettuce salad with Parmesan and golden raisins. I selected a divine squash ravioli with sage butter and a fresh tomato sauce while my colleague had a fresh pasta complete with a lot of sausage and fresh tomato sauce. It was our favourite meal in... More

Great food and service, friendly owner. Everybody working here has an Italian accent. Owner told us they've been "practicing making their food for 39 years". The cappellacci I had has been on the menu since the place opened. Really cute ambience. Highly recommend.

Visited on a Fri night. Easy seating.Waiter did well on specials, but completely forgot the drink I ordered and had to remind. Ordered a sausage pizza - thin crust - when it came and I cut out a piece, it was in a little puddle of liquid and the crust was soggy. Not too appealing! Other entrees here in the... More
