This was my wife and i’s first visit to marcellos. We ordered a classic large pizza and it was delicious. Our server was fantastic as well. Was a great date night for sure.

The server wasn’t the most knowledgable when we asked questions about the menu. We had to take the gamble when ordering. The calamari was mediocre. Nothing exciting about it. The Carbonara was typical not a lot of flavor. The best was the Gamberoni Linguine. It was really flavorful and had the right amount of spice.

Yes we would go back but I hope it is better next time. Server was nice but a little to busy to be fully attentive. Appies and the main dishes came at the same time which I hate. No offer to buy us a drink or take something off the bill. My pasta alio olio was average at best. Wife’s was excellent. Her’s was so good we’d go back for it! Restaurant is a bit noisy and tight for my liking but the under 40 set may enjoy the atmosphere.

Lunch on Marcello's patio is the way to go. Choose a pizza - any pizza! Food is authentic Italian and so was our server. Delightful young woman (wish I had her name); prices very reasonable, service excellent! Wonderful experience and I will be back!

The food and ambiance was great. Server could have been a bit more attentive - took a while to get our bill and she never came by during the meal to see if we needed anything. It was a busy night, I'll give her that.

Too much broken clam shells in pasta...made it difficult to enjoy the dish. Meaty clams but a few were dodgy - not very fresh.

When we walked in, no one acknowledged us. There were 2 girls at the front. I had to go up to them and tell them that we had a reservation. I understand that they were busy, but a smile or eye contact goes a long way. At our table, the server was ok. Came to the table maybe 5 times through out the night. Our wine carafe had something floating in it, she didn’t even say sorry. We opted to go for a bottle of wine instead. Food was amazing, tried a variety of gnocchi, pastas and pizzas. When the bill came she just put it down, she didn’t charge us for the bottle of wine, only the carafe that we initially ordered ($10 difference) which was nice. However I think if she had verbally communicated that, it would have come across as more genuinely sorry that there was something in the wine. She did not try to have a conversation with anyone at the table during that awkward time when she was standing there and we were paying our bill.

I was a little disappointed with the salad. The lettuce a little old and somewhat soggy. Apart from that, everything else was pretty good. Not a slam dunk but I would recommend the restaurant for pizza.

Food tasted really good but very overpriced. Also servers were very inattentive. Once seated and given menu’s, no one came back to ask if we had decided or had questions or tell us about specials etc. And once we were served no one came by to ask if everything was ok (i really wanted some salt and pepper and after waiting over 10 min to talk to our waitress, i went and got it myself from the servers station).

The food was great. We got seated immediately because of our OpenTable reservation. Only blemish is that their food serving speed is quite slow. Don’t go on an absolute empty stomach because you will have a wait a good 20-30 minutes before getting any food.

Hi
I was disappointed in the wine by the glass size, I expected a proper sized wine glass found in other venues for the same price. Then we found a hair in our garden salad. But it was very good. Food took a little longer as well than I remember, this was my 3rd time there and it's been a weekend everytime so just comparing. but s great place for a date or family, kid friendly as well. Large pizza is $30, so I just got a medium

Food was good. My first time here. Service was attentive; good waitress. Our water kept getting refilled which was nice. And the waitress doesn't try to kick you out like other places do. My only thing was that my friend had an allergic reaction to the pizza. Not sure what. Next time we will order just ham and no salami.

Everyone at the table enjoyed everything we ordered...the service was so-so. One main course was either forgotten or not prepared properly...but it took them about 10 minutes after the rest of the meals arrived to explain this. They did offer right away to comp it which was great, and it needed time in the oven so by the time it arrived, most of the others at the table had almost finished their meals. But overall, it was good and we would go back.

We have enjoyed your restaurant on several occasions. We did not particularly enjoy the pizza this time; it wasn’t awful but disappointing..... not up to previous standards.

Hadn’t been by in years after moving away. Marcello used to be a favourite! Lovely to have gone back and the food is still amazing if not better. I’ve visited many of the new Neapolitan pizzerias that have been popping up in the neighbourhood, and I have to say quality and price are top at Marcello. Pizza was huge, packed with fresh flavourful ingredients and the service phenomenal.
