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.

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

Everything at this restaurant is delicious! If you are in a hurry try their deli next door too. The owners are personable and change up the menu to keep things interesting

We have been going to Marcello since it first opened. It is always fabulous! We've never had a bad meal. The wait staff are efficient and friendly. The food is consistently great. What more to say? We love it!

This is a pretty, well maintained, white tablecloth restaurant. The food was well prepared. My wife and I shared a watercress and pear salad. It was excellent. I ordered the trout with raisins and sautéed onions, also excellent. My wife had the fish special which was halibut, good but not outstanding. I was surprised my trout entree was served with...

The bread and wine were excellent! I ordered the special, which was mahi-mahi and spinach, wrapped in phyllo. It was cooked perfectly, but needed more flavor. I ended up putting some of the tapenade served with the bread on my fish. My husband and daughter ordered dishes with zesty tomato-cream sauce, which were fabulous. Order something with the tomato cream... More

I have been her once. Had a salmon dish that was delicious! Cooked perfectly (I hate undercooked fish) and seasoned just right. We liked it so much we gave gift certificates as Christmas gifts. Can't wait to go back.
