Excellent service and meal.
The patio was great as it was a hot day so we were out of the sun, perfect!

It was just ok. I didn’t find the experience to be anything special and the food was a little disappointing compared to the last time i visited but overall it was nice.

This place is certainly not what it used to be. They are running on the fumes of yesteryear. Too bad. Marcello needs to go back behind the counter if he hopes to save this institutional restaurant.

Excellent place. Best pizza. Good value for your money.

Only thing is that the tables near the washroom are not too good specially because they are close to the door that leads to the tables in the patio and whenever this door gets opened, a breeze of cold air comes in.

An authentic Italian place. The best pasta and pizza in town. We love the Spaghetti Pollo Picante and the Carpricosa Pizza cannot be beaten anywhere. They have a fabulous showstopper wood burning pizza oven. The wine, beer and cocktail list is good too.

It was very disturbing to be required to be subjected to a Smart Infrared Temperature Thermometer Kiosk with Face Recognition in order to be a customer at Marcello’s Restaurant. The employee rejected our request to have a hand held thermometer used instead. She said the battery died as she showed us that thermometer. Other than that, the food was good and our waiter was fantastic.

I went here for my birthday for dinner. The food was delicious and very generous with the portions. They were busy that night and it took a while to get our food. Service was a bit slow but good overall. The kitchen was understaffed for the amount of orders they had in the restaurant. I would definitely come here again as I love the fresh pasta and pizza. I do recommend people to try if they haven't been here. One of the best places for fresh homemade pasta.

When we were seated near the patio door that had a continuous cool draft, we politely asked the manager if we could be moved to another table (as there were several available at that time). We were told 'there is no draft' and 'the patio door does not open'... So, our request was sternly denied. Meanwhile, the door opened dozens of times throughout our dinner, and my elderly parents had to put scarves on while rushing through their meals. We brought it up again -- and sadly, no one seemed to care. I never write negative reviews, but felt it necessary since we were basically ignored. It was rude, unprofessional, and disappointing -- especially given it was Family Day and I wanted to treat my parents to a rare night out. The calamari was great, and our server was lovely -- but the manager failed.

Food is great if you are looking for Italian food. Personally tasted amazing but a bit heavy for me . If you are looking for great tasting pasta. It’s. A must for you 👍🏽

This is one of my favourite Italian restaurants.
I love the tomato gnocchi and margarita pizza. And if you have a big appetite go for the calzone!

The food is great but the service is so so and the ambiance is ruined by their loud phone ringing that can be heard all over the restaurant. The wine by the glass is very disappointing. Overall three stars because of good value but disappointing otherwise.

When we arrived, we were seated at a table right by the washrooms. You could clearly hear the toilets flushing. Not very pleasant. Luckily they were able to move us to a better table once another party left. The food was ok, but the pizzas could have used another minute or two in the oven.

I used to love the vegi pizza as it had so many toppings on it but unfortunately not only the price has gone up but also the toppings has gone down too, barely any toppings on the pizza, kinda of disappointing 😢 but the Spicey chicken pasta was super yummy just like before 👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼 also didn't like the service our server was very mad and angry when we asked for anything like warm water with lemon or he served us coffee that was half full and when we asked to fill it up he was really mad 😢 disappointing hope next time will be better 🙏🏼
