Good no-frills restaurant for Italian fare. Have been here many times. Caesar Salad was bit dry this time but the Pizza is allways good and service is attentive. Waiters are using a kind of lower face shield instead of masks, which I thought was a bit odd, but I'm assuming this is allowed by healthy authorities.

The waiter couldn’t have been better. The restaurant was very cold. Salad was simple and great, linguine Carbonara was more like a very bad Alfredo. The restaurant was gracious and removed it from the bill. I reserved a pizza and was much happier.

Food tastes like the lid fell off the salt shaker when they seasoned it. Service was great. Ambience ok. Value no.

You’ve got to try the 4 Cheese Gnocchi- I’ve already had it twice this month. That and the Capresse pizza and a Misto salad left 3 of us pleasantly full. We did mention it was a birthday but no cake for me!

Our first dinner out as a family in months because of CV19 and glad we chose Marcello's. It was mid-week and pretty early (5 PM) reservations so there were only a handful of other tables but the service and food were both outstanding. Also, without knowing, we were there for Happy Hour so $5 house wine was a welcome surprise.
Important to note that we felt very comfortable with the CV19 protocols in place. Well spaced tables, plexiglass separating the tables, staff with mouth shields, etc.
We have been fans a long time and will be regulars for years to come.

Food is really good. The ambience is strangely like a cafeteria. A lot of seats in long rows in very little space. Can get pretty noisy too.

I asked for a 1/2 portion of Calamari and they could not accomodate the request, they brought it by mistake and took it back, maybe offer it to me for 1/2 price. Wej all ordered dinners and a salad so it wasn't like we were trying to save $ nor get something gratis...just saying. Our server, Pino, could have smiled once or twice too. That being said all else was wonderful!

Hostess was so welcoming and friendly and our waitress was great!! Food was amazing especially grilled calamari pizza was great too. We can’t wait to go back next time we are in Vancouver. Little Italy 🇮🇹 has a great vibe.

Came here for my brother’s birthday. Was not happy with the service, the first waiter that greeted me made me feel like I was judge because of my race. The entire time he ignored us, sat down and had to wait about 15 min to get our water. The first waiter kept avoiding eye contact because he didn’t want to help us. Will not be going back.

Marcello is a regular place for our family. We go for most special occasions. This time we found the food to be slightly less spectacular than usual, but we were not disappointed. The service was as great as ever. I will always recommend.

Very good food. Excellent service. And a very nice interior of the restaurant kind of reminds me a bit of a cheesecake factory meets traditional Italian.
Recommended!
