We have been going to Marcellos since it opened, it is consistently good.
This week we invited another couple who had not been. Before and they loved it.

Long time Marcello Lovers!
We love this place and yesterday it did not disappoint. The server was bright cheerful, ensured that our meals and beverages were delivered as efficiently as possible. She has been there a long time and never disappoints as she is so friendly and bubbly. My friend had Carbonara and I had Bolognese, both best as ever.
Everything I have had there has been good, even the lasagna and I am a tough critic.
Cheers!

It's been a few years since our last time dining here, and the unfortunate thing we noted, nothing has changed in the space. And to be honest, the space is looking tired.
The first thing we noticed when we sat down, and not sure if this is a good thing, was the obnoxious choice of music being loudly played, which immediately took away from the intended ambiance.
The service as a whole was ok, and the portions of the meal were adequate.
The food was just ok, nothing special.
Decent value for the price paid, considering we had no alcohol with the meal.

For Marcello's to remain relevant, and competitive with the likes of Sopra Sotto, a renovation and an update would be beneficial, especially to the menu.

We really enjoyed our food - service was great. My husband had calamari and it was excellent. I had the chicken parmesan and it was really good too. It was noisy but refreshing for us older people.

I made a request for a quiet table to celebrate my husband's birthday. Booking reservation said to allow only 1 hour, ie 7-8, surprise a dinner allows only 1 hr. I understand the restaurant needs to get a quick turnover on a Friday night and close to Xmas time. We arrived earlier, so I order an expensive bottle, 2 rounds of drinks, appetizer and pasta, desserts. Which average spending close to $130 per person, hope to make up the average spending to compensate the loss of turnover. But we were told to return the table at 8:30, and we need to rush our drinks. I hope the restaurant should be more accommodating for some special occasion

We've been coming here for years - for small and large get togethers - and have sent many, many friends -- but never again. They've reduced everything - portion size is half (my husband ate his tiny lasagna in 6 bites), service is non-existent (waiter just slapped the plates down - and we don't think he said one word to us through our entire visit), but of course - prices are the same or more. This is the wrong strategy for this and all restaurants in general. Your regulars should not be paying the price for your losses. Really...how much does a noodle and sauce tomato sauce cost. Pennies. But you've just lost our visits and our referrals for life. That's thousands and thousands of dollars. Your short term gain will ensure long term pain. Ciao!

I booked a table for my husbands birthday and had made note of that in my reservation.
The service was really awful, no one checked to see how the food was or asked if we needed anything until we were finished and paying the bill. the server forgot to bring a beer that my husband had ordered, the food was bland and overall basic, not satisfying like what it smells like when you come in. The restaurant was busy and it seemed like the staff over stretched, and barely meeting the needs of customers. I was not happy with anything and it kinda put a negative vibe on our evening. I doubt we will be returning.

The gnocchi ai quattro formaggi was excellent. The linguine alle vongole was not the classic white wine garlic and lemon combination I was expecting. The sauce was oily and spicy but was still quite good. Overall we enjoyed our dinner.
