We always enjoy our meals at Marcellos. It’s our favourite Italian dining in the city. Although we are living in Covid times, the restaurant did seem a little crowded.

I had a great time having dinner there with my girlfriend, the portions weren't huge but just right. The food was delicious. We ordered the pesto pasta and the eggplant pizza. The pesto pasta wasn't too heavy, and the eggplant pizza was very unique.

The decors were very nice, makes me feel like I was in Italy!

I noted that it was for birthday celebration but no acknowledgement. Probably all staff were so busy but I felt unwelcomed and decided to leave without dessert. Truly disappointing…

Marcello is big and a bit impersonal - food is good, but not amazing. It's a reliable place to get a decent pasta or pizza, just not gourmet in my opinion (others may feel quite differently!).

We had hoped to sit outside for a birthday dinner but the table was not available. It was very noisy inside. There was Reasonable separation of tables but children were running around. Servers were very busy so it was a bit slow to get menus but our server was attentive and responsive. Food was good, served hot and main courses served at once. Fried calamari appetizer always a favourite.

The food was okay. The best item in the menu is the grilled baby squid & prawns.
Would have liked to see risotto, osso bucco and other less tomato based dishes. Pasta was overcooked. The portions are generous, the wine list is overpriced, although worth the splurge. The desserts are heavenly.
The staff could use a little more courtesy and smiles.

In an Italian restaurant we attend osso bucco, saltimboca and escalope Milanese. Not only pizza and pasta.

Food was good service was to the point. The restaurant was fairly empty that’s why the noise level was down. We had a whole restaurant to ourselves but they stuck us in the most cramped corner beside the bar. Will go again for the pizza.

Service was not very good & most likely they were short staffed. However, our waiter informed us they can not make any modification to any food ( switch pasta for salad)& also when we showed him they used the wrong sauce on the pasta which had meat was arguing with us that its not meat & after alot of back & forth agreed it was meat & said the kitchen made a mistake!

We ordered a pizza with ham and mushrooms and an other one margharita. The one with ham and mushrooms had few mushrooms and few ham. The crust was burned. We had a goud service. We were seated outside and it was noisy with the garbage truck and other ones.
I won't go back there.

When we sat down it took 15 mins until someone took our order and only after I had to get up and ask someone to come over. Subsequent to that we only received service other then when our food arrived when I had to get up again and ask someone for water etc.

The meal took over 1 hour and 20 mins when it should have been left 45-50 mins.

We have been to Marcellos many times and have always had a great experience before this.

Food not as good as it used to be and prices have increased a lot. Pizza crust seemed thicker and different than the last time we were here two years ago. Didn’t try pasta this time

Overall, it was a great place to have a meal. However, I was concerned that the tables were so close to each other. My chair was literally 4 inches away from the person behind me. There was no social distancing between tables. As well, there was only 1 working toilet in the washroom. For a restaurant this size, I expect more washrooms. Needless to say, it was a long wait and my food was cold when I got back.

SUPER busy and noisy. Even though Covid restrictions were lifted the tables are way too close and none of the employees are currently wearing masks. Food was OK but took almost 1h to arrive.
