Chef Marcello Lombardo - INSPIRED BY FOOD AND DRIVEN BY A DREAM
Born in the City of Delights, or more commonly known as Palermo, Italy, Marcello fell in love with cooking from a very young age. Influenced by the crystal clear water, the flavours of the culturally rich air and a little encouragement from his mother, he went on to receive professional training from Milan and owned a restaurant on the Adriatic Sea. Now for over 20 years he's brought his joy of Southern Italian cooking to Vancouver. Marcello's is a neighbourhood gem on Commercial Drive in the heart of little Italy set for any occasion.

    Everything was amazing. Our server was very polite and nice especially when we asked to change our seat. It was a little loud inside but the restaurant is amazing. Be careful with cocktails as they’re pretty strong:)

    We love Marcello's happy hour and go quite frequently. However, this time we were quite disappointed when we ordered the penne off The happy hour menu and ended up with a sample compared to what we had been used to having during happy hour. It would come in a bull this time. It was on a little appetizer plate. There was maybe 20. Pasta was certainly not worth even the happy hour price. delicious but won't be ordering that again.

    Food was amazing, as always...unfortunately (through no fault of the restaurant), there was an obnoxiously loud, large party creating 95% of the noise level while we were there. But the great food and service rose above that annoyance.

    Very noisy inside, but we were lucky to be on the covered and heated patio where it was much quieter. The service was very good. The four of us shared two caprese salads and a different pasta each. My linguine vongole wasn’t that great (not much flavour, even with tons of Parmesan cheese), but the chefs pasta dish and the puttanesca was very good. Saw a few pizzas go by and made a mental note to try those next time as they looked amazing. Reasonably priced wines too, so dinner for 4 didn’t break the bank. Overall, a pleasant dining experience, so we will be back!

    Friendly staff. Kitchen forgot our order so it was quite a wait, with no compensation, but when they realized the error they informed us. Luckily we still made our show although a bit more rushed. AI Gnocci thoroughly enjoyed. Its "4 cheese" but you can really taste the blue cheese, so may not be for those that don't like blue cheese. Lasagna which was also very tasty although could have been a bit larger. Wine options are a little pricey, with the house wine at $15/8oz. Would return and recommend.

    It was good food, on the expensive side. The restaurant could most definitely use a makeover…..or just a good cleaning. Thought it was overpriced for the quality of the food.

    Pizza and chef’s salad were amazing as usual. Calamari was very good, but too expensive at $26, so we will skip that next time. Noise level was great, we could still have a conversation.

    Valentine's Day dinner was a treat for both of us. The espresso martini was a treat. We shared the grilled calamari which was a tasty surprise (never had this before). The calamari were tender, tasty, and beautifully spiced. The accompanying plate of grilled peppers, foccacia, and olives enhanced the calamari. Main plates (chicken puttanesca and pesto gnocci with grilled pancetta) were tasty and good to look at. Shared a triple gelato (one layer of pistachio!) We enjoyed our time at Marcello's immensely!

    It was an early Valentines day dinner with my wife, and we were very pleased with the food, quality the ambiance and the service. The waitress from Kazakhstan was very personable, friendly and professional. My wife really enjoyed the pizza as well as the spaghetti that we shared. we would definitely come back.

    Sophia took care of us while we were there and she was amazing. Thank you❤! Even as we were leaving, one of the other servers said hello to us and asked how our dinner was and he went out of his way to be nice to us. He was honest and genuine just like Sophia...no plastic smile here. Notice I haven't even mentioned the food yet? A restaurant for our family is all about the people. Marcello has both, people and food. Honestly, I expect the food to be good no matter where we go. Restaurants don't survive very long in Vancouver serving OK food. Ambience, and the people who are part of our dining experience are the most important thing. That being said, the food here is absolutely amazing.....really! Authentic Italian, and the wood fired pizza oven is a rare thing to find these days...perfect pizza, perfect pasta! Our new favorite restaurant❤
