We enjoyed a family dinner in the dining room. The modestly attractive and comfortable room has about 12 tables. This is separate from the very busy pizza size of the restaurant (doing a brisk take-out business). Extensive listing of all the Italian favorites (veal, chicken, seafood, pasta).
We were with "locales" who were prepared for BYOB options. Boy, does this save money! Entree portions were large without being overwhelming.
Dinners come with either soup or salads. My soup had a home made appearance and was served very hot! Salads were large and very fresh. Importantly this is not your one size fits all category establishment. The entrees come with pasta choices of spaghetti, linguine, capelini, fettuccine,ziti, penne or rigatoni. WOW.

My Veal Milanese was much better than the similar item at Olive Garden. The Veal Marsala was a big hit was large or tasty portobello mushrooms. The egg plant parmigiana was also excellent.

Our service was attentive without being pushy!

The restaurant does not look like much from the outside with a strip mall type appearance. Don't be put off-come on in for excellent food & service.

(by the way there are two listing for this restaurant in Trip Advisor-one under Marcello's Ristorante & Pizzeria & a separate one under Marcello's Pizzeria and Ristorante).

We went to Marcello's for a late lunch... they have lunch specials until 3 PM, so we were happily surprised by that. My wife and I each ordered a sandwich / fries / large drink. Huge portions, and the chicken parm and cheeseburger special were both excellent. Service was good ... you seat yourself, it's very casual. Total bill was $16, can't beat that ... very satisfied.

Everything is homemade from the authentic sauces to the sub-rolls to the meals with fresh ingredients. Each dish individually made and is delicious. From all kinds of shrimp, crab, lobster, clams, veal, beef and chicken dishes to pizza and subs. Even the soup is made daily and you can buy their marinara sauce in a jar--without preservatives. Two sides to the restaurant--one for lunch with counter service and one for fine dining. Delicious food, good pricing, friendly owner. This restaurant wins the Best of Carlisle award from the people who eat there, every year. Our family and friends eat here frequently!

We were in the area for a soccer tournament. The owner was so accommodating in working with us to organize a team dinner on a Saturday night. We had 50+ people and he had us sitting in a separate area with plenty of attention from the friendly wait staff. The food was really good and very plentiful. We also loved that it is BYOB! We will definitely go there again the next time we are in town...the owner and staff gave us a wonderful experience!

Came for a group event. Terrible service. Seemed surprised we were there even though we had a reservation. Vodka sauce has ham and peas added.
