Marcello continues to provide top notch dining experiences to his customers. Last night's dinners were no exception. Four of us had a no rush dinner with excellent, friendly service in pleasant, low volume surroundings. The food, as usual was very, very good. Scallops in a saffron broth with beans and spinach, spaghetti with LOTS of clams in a spicy broth and ravioli in a rich tomato sauce (quickly downed by a delighted eater) made for very happy people. The salads were fresh and perfectly dressed. The shared desserts wonderful. This is a reasonably priced, high quality restaurant (3 appetizers, 4 drinks, 4 entrees, 2 desserts came to $235 including tip and tax)

Food is very good and the staff very attentive. They run specials- sometimes Groupons or local things they advertise. They are locale right on the main street in town- we have combined dinner with a movie at the beautiful old Lafeyette Movie house a few doors down and had a great night out.

We went with a groupon deal, and were treated like gold (which is not always the case at other restaurants). Wait staff was attentive and interested in making sure you get the meal you want. Great suggestions and wine pairings. The regular price is a bit more than we usually spend on a dinner, but we do intend to return. There were so many dishes that interested us that we'll definitely need to go again!

My company has taken prospective candidates and business partners out to dinner at this restaurant over the past 15 years. I have not seen a single dish fail to come out as it should. Our guests are always impressed. Marcello, the owner/operator, was born and formally trained as a chef in Italy. He has stayed in control and he has strolled out into the eating area every time I have been there to see that his customers are happy. Marcello has opened a few other restaurants in a 10 mile radius, but this is his home base. Marcello is also a participant in the local community and has donated time and auction items to the local hospital fundraisers, judging cooking contests in adjacent towns' field days, written his own recipe book, etc.

The food at Marcello's is absolutely fabulous starting with onion focaccia bread all the way through to zabalione for dessert! We had two veal dishes-picatta and marsala, and both were beautifully presented, tender and excellently prepared. The wait staff is charming and provided personal service. Its a really wonderful restaurant -not to be missed.
