Scallops al Pesto

We were there, our first time, to hear the entertaining musical duo but were subsequently blown away by the food, ambiance and service!
The specials of the evening were outstanding. Would recommend the bread be brought to the table more often maybe with some olive oil and vinegar.
Diner was amazing and the service outstanding. We just wish they would sell their pasta! We will come back.
The handmade pasta is to die for. Great menu. Something to satisfy everyone’s taste. Highly recommend for those that truly enjoy Italian cuisine.
Birthday dinner for the wife.
Fabulous as always! Wonderful food, fantastic service. Can’t wait to go back! Definitely a favorite!
Great restaurant , nice atmosphere . Had terrific service.
Waitwr was illiterate and kept forgetting what we ordered. Too many employees which causes confusion.
Didn’t understand 3-4 women at the hostess stand and all they did was walk around and didn’t help.
Food was not as good as it has been in the past, although it has been a couple of years, we were all disappointed
Overpriced for the quality of their food. Good drinks however
Pork tenderloin was way over cooked and served like 2 chunks of meat. Way over priced
The food here is expensive but authentic and worth the price.
This was a true find. I can’t believe we have not been there. It will be one of our regulars from now on. It was like being in Italy. The large selection of home made pastas was amazing.
The food and service were amazing. The only flaw was your Diet Coke was flat and has been the past two visits.
The waiter was horrible , and wouldn’t explain anything to us. The food was okay but we probably would’ve gotten something different if he would’ve explained the plates to us but he had an attitude with us and talked about how children stare and that we were ungrateful lol all bc my man asked him to change the sauce on his good
We love Marcellino! By far the best Italian we’ve found in AZ
Truly the best food!
Amazing meal with amazing service. Had not had dinner at location in nearly a year but we'll worth the wait. They staff is super friendly and we'll knowledge. The meal are hands down amazing but the Home Made Italian cheesecake is by far my favorite part of the meal. One of the best dessert I've had. We will continue to do dinner here at least every other month
The restaurant was great. I enjoyed the pasta but I do think it was a bit over priced
Delicious as always! And the people are amazing! Can’t wait to go back.
The food is amazing and the service is wonderful. 10 out of 10 restaurant.
We had a great experience, all around.
Everything at Marcellino’s is always PERFECT.
We enthusiastically recommend this superb restaurant to all who are seeking to enjoy the highest offerings in culinary art.
One of my favorite restaurants ever. We dine at Marcellinos on almost every trip to Phoenix and it never disappoints.
Always amazing!!!! Our favorite restaurant!!! Drive up from Tucson to eat here for special occasions!!
Wonderful experience dining at your establishment. It would be nice to have someone at the entrance as you leave to thank you for dining after spending $300.00 otherwise, everything was excellent, will be back next time I’m in Scottsdale
Marcellino is a gem! The chef has lots of passion not just about the food but in the guests to make this a truly memorable occasion. Highly recommend
Food was very good but service lacking ..
Server acred like He was doing us a favor !
Only redemption was the food ..
This was my favorite restaurant until this experience. WILL NEVER GO BACK. First woman who seated us and took our drink order described in great detail about how the cockroaches come out on the patio...while we were sitting on the patio. And she could not find the right wines on the menu. Then we had a mix up with some dishes and the chef/owner had the audacity to come out to our table and yell at me. Saying my pasta was cooked fine. It was not cooked fine...I had that dish before on other visits and last night it was tasteless and pasta was way too al dente. Had better pasta at Olive Garden. And sauce was tasteless...like bland butter. Also martini was terrible. Tasted like cheap vodka. Used to be my go to special occasion restaurant. And I would recommend to friends. Now I will strongly recommend people NOT to go there. I wanted to tell the chef/owner when he came and yelled at me...well I would not be so annoyed at you yelling at me...but need to eat quick before the cockroaches come. Will be calling the Department of Health about cockroaches issue. Did not make a big deal of it last night...as other people were dining on the patio and I did not want to gross them out. Plus, I was already so embarrassed by the whole thing as I had taken a friend who had never been there and I had been raving about the place. AWFUL experience.
Beautifully presented and served temperature hot. Wait staff seemed inexperienced.
We were introduced to this restaurant because of Restaurant Week-would go back!
Delicious as always and authentic Italian food and experience! Great for place for All dinner occasions. Looking forward to trying the off menu pasta dishes next time.
Noise level was very high for what is advertised to be a romantic Italian restaurant
We were celebrating a special event, and the staff really performed.. Food was terrific.
The only drawback is the overall noise level. VERY high. Conversations were very difficult, lots of 'clarifications' with waiter because noise level made it so difficult.
Food was average Americanized Italian. Nothing unique about the menu. Servings were small for the price point. Definitely paying for the Old Town Scottsdale location.
I’m not going to give a negative review because they place wasn’t that bad. I think it’s just difficult to find good food in Arizona. I had the squid ink pasta which unfortunately did not have much flavor. I think the pasta water was not salted. The tomato sauce was literally diced tomatoes sautéed and placed on the pasta. Again. No salt or garlic or olive oil. It wasn’t terrible but it wasn’t flavorful either. The waitress was very sweet and accommodating. I felt like if Gordon Ramsey were there he would have flipped his lid. Over all it was OK. Would I go back? Eh.
The food and service was excellent. Our server, Diane was very attentive. We had the house specialty’s, squid ink pasta and porcini mushroom pasta which were delicious, however over priced. If you are looking for Italian food that is beyond spaghetti and meatballs, Marcelinos is that place.
Overall enjoyed our meal and the inside ambience very nice. Soup and mozzarella appetizers were ok, but nothing special. The passatelli with sausage ragu was excellent. A salmon entree with a caper sauce was tasty and cooked just right. We both enjoy the panna cotta for desert. Service was attentive but not over bearing. We had a white wine, which was kept chilled in a community bucket, but our glasses were never empty. We would return.
The best high end Italian meal in Arizona.
We had dinner during Restaurant Week. Our meals included mashed potatoes which were average tasting but everything else was excellent.
Service was very good.
The wine (by the glass) we ordered was also very good.
Would recommend for a nice dinner out for two or a larger group.
