Very good food. The creamy gorgonzola sauce on the gnocchi could have been more flavorful. However the panna cotta was amazing.

We were visiting from out of state and found this via Yelp. What a great restaurant. We were treated so grandly as we were celebrating our anniversary. Our waiter was very attentive and everything he suggested was spot on. There is nothing like homemade pasta! We also loved the entertainment. I would highly recommend this place!

Had an excellent dinner here. Pasta was all homemade. Prices were a bit high. Would recommend for a special meal not everyday dining

Our experience at the bar was quite lovely ... they were rather accommodating!
Dinner was lack luster. My entree was awful, it was drenched in olive oil and when I was finally able to catch someone’s attention for assistance it was met with disagreement and nonchalance. Then another waiter came over who at first agreed with the others, then did see all the oil and apologized ... however at that point it was 9:30 and my companion was nearly done with dinner. They did offer to take my meal off the ticket, which was nice however the evening was ruined, unfortunately. Darn. I really wanted to love Marcelinos, I had heard great reviews.

Food unfortunately average.
I have very high expectations.
Throughly briefed the staff prior to arrival and upon arrival, that it was my new wife’s birthday.
ABSOLUTELY NOTHING was done to mark the event.

It was hot in the restaurants to the point we were sweating. The half lobster on squid pasta was mealy.
Server was ok but everyone else that worked there seemed annoyed that they were there.
The restaurant has always been great and I send all my out of town friends there. I’ve Been there a lot but this last time was just not what the restaurant is about.

The food and service were absolutely perfect. The appetizer and pasta dishes were delicious and authentically Italian. There was ample parking beneath the restaurant. The ambiance was outstanding. Quiet restaurant with excellent decor. Could not have been better.

The pasta is all made fresh which is great but my fettuccine contadina was really pretty bland, I was disappointed. My app was scallops in pesto sauce, the pesto was great but half the scallops were cooked too long and were no longer tender. The flourless espresso cake was great. Service crawled to a standstill after our initial server's shift ended. Overall I wasn't too impressed for the $. Fat Ox may have surpassed this place.

This has always been one of our favorite places to eat. The ambiance is great, the food is exceptional and the service is always aimed to please.

We were a little disappointed because they were out of a pasta dish and two choices of wine. We hope that next visit, we will find everything that we love!

Food had absolutely no flavor. We had two salads, they were so so. And two appetizers: Polenta with truffle and scallops, couldn't even taste the truffle and polenta tasted like soggy white bread. Homemade pasta had no flavor - ate it because we were hungry. Had heard great things, but it wasn’t just one bad thing, everything was extremely lack luster. everyone at our table walked away completely unsatisfied and annoyed for having just spent so much money on a very sub par meal. Won’t be going back or recommending.

The homemade pasta was amazing and perfectly cooked all dente . It was chewy and tasty, hearty yet light sauces so you do not leave feeling overstuffed.
We enjoyed all 3 meals, a salad and an appetizer.

Homemade pasta choices were specials of the evening and excellent. We enjoyed the mushroom pasta with several different mushrooms in a light garlic sauce. Terrific! The appetizers were beautifully prepared and nicely presented. We all enjoyed the red cabbage slaw that seems to be their signature vegetable onto which they place many appetizers.

The aesthetic of the restaurant is very pleasing and added quite the romantic setting for my girlfriend and I. Although, the service is slightly slow and the food (strictly my opinion) was not very good. I can see many people enjoying the food here as it is very unique, but it will either be a solid hit or solid miss as to whether you like the flavors or not. Was not 100% satisfied, but was not disappointed either. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful on guiding you through their vast variety of food.

We were given water and then waited 20 minutes to order drinks and I had to ask for our waitress. We waited another 10 minutes for drinks. Waited another 20/30 minutes for food which was dropped off by a non/smiling food server. Our waitress stopped by when we were almost finished to ask how it was. Also, I had to ask for bread. Service was not good, food was expensive and we felt basically ignored. It was an anniversary and they did not ask if there was an occasion, etc. We live in Scottsdale and eat at many restaurants. It was disappointing to say the least. Not going back.
