Beautiful atmosphere, amazing food could have used a touch more salt but that's my taste, the staff was perfect and even let us sample wives before committing to a purchase. Overall a perfect experience.
We love Marcellino's
Everyone who works there are pleasant, sincere, and the music is awesome.
The restaurant seems to have added more tables than in the past. The last two times I visited the restaurant, the two seat tables were very close to each other. It was like you were sharing a table with the party next to you. The romantic atmosphere is completely lost when you have to speak over the conversation at the next table. They are that close! The food is always amazing, but you can forget about a romantic evening for the two of you!
Best pasta of my life, hands-down. Dinner was Pretty pricey but this is just another case of “you get what you pay for”.
Everything was perfect from the service to the atmosphere to, of course, the food.
Fantastic night out! Isaiah was an amazing server and truly made our night special. Great food and a wonderful night!
It was perfect! It met every expectation! The chef came out and spoke to us, the food was fantastic, the wait staff was wonderful.
Our server was so patient with us as my date and I hadn’t seen each other or talked in quite some time. We were very unconventional with our dining pace and she never left us unattended despite us being very slow. I’ve eaten there probably 20 times and the food and service is always spot on.
Always one of my “must eat” for out of town guests!!
There is a somewhat cold atmosphere in this restaurant . The menu had lots of pastas but nothing we found enticing . The pasta with carbonara sauce was very salty— almost inedible.
Italian with a twist. Pretentious. Would be ok if they could have knocked it out of the park. Maybe better for apps, salad, and wine over a proper meal. Didn't love it. Didn't hate it. Would give it another shot, but not dying to go back.
I had the rosemary chicken and my boyfriend had the ragu pasta.. I really enjoyed it,the food is delicious service is great.
Worst dinner experience in years. 730 reservation, got seated at 815. First waiter arrived at 840. Drinks at 910. No one asked us for our order until 920. Owner had to take order after 3 failed attempts to have servers get it correct. My food came out wrong. Wife at alone b cause my food took another 20 minutes to arrive. Mine then came out wrong again and just ate what was served. Waiter and owner arguing about something all night. Check came with full price, nothing comped. 280 bucks later starving and need pizza after. Horrible experience. Hope you read and reserve with caution.
One of our favorite restaurants. Loved everything about our evening at Macellino’s.
Has become my favorite Scottsdale restaurant . Seviice and menu Advise is exceptional. Pasta as it’s best. Some interesting wine selections. The truffle and sausage pasta was exceptional. Expensive, but over all worth it. Outside dinning a plus.
This restaurant is a gem!! One of the best we have been to. We never get tired of the exquisite food and great service. Every time we visit Scottsdale, we eat here at least once, usually two or three times.
Was great. Front to back!
I'm an Italian Restaurant fan! This is one of the best here in the Valley and I think in the US. And, I travel a lot and eat out a lot. The creative food and menu is tops. The owners are friendly and get to know you. Staff is well trained. All in all a MUST! Oh and by all means - try one of the special homemade pasta dishes which the wait staff "present to you" (off menu).
Loved the live music by the chef's wife and the food was delicious!! Will go back the next time in Scottsdale
Wonderful pasta. Excellent fairly priced unique Italian wine list. Unusual gorgonzola veal dish worth trying if you like mild blue cheese sauce. Good service.
Marcellino's pasta is always out of this world. Perfect flavors, textures, ingredients, and presentation. The restaurant is always romantic, and offers excellent service, nice ambiance, and consistency you can count on for special occasions.
Small Expensive homemade pasta dishes. $16.95tartufo for dessert was beyond expensive for a teenie tiny one scoop of ice cream. Salads were fresh and tasty however.
We very much enjoyed our dinner here . The food was delicious and the ambience was just amazing. We requested a table outside and it was very magical with the lights, Beautiful temperature and delicious food .
Fantastic Meal! Great service!
Upon entering we were offered a table inside or out. Before we could open our mouths to answer another hostess said "I don't have any more table's outside." Fair enough, but we saw many people coming in after us who were immediately ushered to an outside table. I realize that some of them may have been reserved, but I had a view to the outside from my table, and only a few had reserve signs on them. Can't help wondering, was it the way we looked, dressed, our age?
The service was excellent, and our waiter was top notch. However, the meal I ordered was very bland. It was hot and fresh though. My husband's meal was delicious, so it depends on what you order.
Personally, I would not go there again.
This restaurant was recommended by friends for the creative and kitchen made pasta dishes and it did not disappoint.
Friendly creative bartender and gracious host.
Ambience was quiet and friendly and our waitress couldn’t be more accommodating.
A home run.
Our favorite — Authentic Italian food made from scratch. The pasta is handmade, the sauces are fantastic, and the entrees are delicious. I wish we had saved room for dessert.
The wine list is extensive and although there are a lot of expensive offerings, there are also reasonably priced and delicious wines. And the wait staff is very helpful with the wine list.
Marcellino has a full bar and a very comfortable dining room. Outdoor seating looks great but we wanted to listen to the live jazz, which is always fantastic without being overpowering.
We couldn’t have been happier with our anniversary dinner. Try the lamb Ragu.
My second visit in 2 months. I am in love with their pasta and apple galatta!
We waited a good 10 minutes before we got greeted by an actual server. We were starving. I asked our waiter to go over the gluten free options and I felt like he completely disregarded my whole question. I just wanted to know the best things so I could order.... instead I got their pasta spheel... the food took FOREVER to get to us from appetizer to dinner. My date explained that if he were by himself, he would have left already. I completely agree. The food was really good, service could definitely improve.
Authentic Italian cuisine.
Been going to this place for years.
They NEVER disappoint.
Even our server was Italian. And she was terrific.
Loved this reastarnt will be our go to when Sassi closes great service. And loved the live music. It was there but did not overtake the place. U could still have a nice conversation without yelling. Pasta all home made excellent!!!!!!
Loved the pasta - obviously made fresh, chewy and lovely. Served with an appropriate light sauce. We had a prosciutto and mozzarella app - perfect.
The vocal music was a bit loud at the table we had. I'd have rather had a quiet dinner.
Was great. Service was awesome and the food and wine was very tasty. Highly recommend.
Thirty seven dollars for pasta is absurd. This eatery justifies this rip off by touting "artisanal pasta" as it's specialty. NewsFlash: Every Italian woman in New Jersey can make her pasta from scratch (artisanal pasta). It is just pasta.
Do not be swayed by the pompous waiter, who reverently displays samples of the pasta varieties as if they were relics of St. Padre Pio. It is just pasta.
I suppose the chef-owner must do something to pay the high rents of Old Town Scottsdale. Serving food worth the expense would have been a better solution. It is just pasta.
Wonderful meal our waitress was wonderful as well, it was our anniversary and they started us out with a nice complementary drink !
Lovely; but quite pricey
Overall it was good, but nothing overly "special". The interior is beautiful and our requested table was perfect. Service was pretty good to start, but waned as our waiter got spread over multiple tables. We would certainly return to try other items on the menu and with expectations reset would likely be able to give a better review.
We arrived after our reservation (we were traveling with a newborn) and were worried that the kitchen might close. Thankfully we were accommodated and taken care of quite well. They we very warm and patient, oh and the food was fantastic! The live music also helped create a nice atmosphere.
An outstanding Italian restaurant. The food is something special, and very authentic Italian. Excellent atmosphere, both inside the restaurant and in the outside seating area. Very competent and attentive wait staff. We will be returning.
Made reservations here to celebrate my boyfriends birthday. They went above and beyond my requests and gave us most romantic table on the patio, provided a small complementary appetizer, dessert and cocktails. The service all the way from the waiter to the owners was outstanding in creating the perfect experience. Our waiter gave us a great idea of splitting our pasta dishes since my bf and I wanted the same two and they coursed them out for us. This allowed us to try two of their homemade pastas which were some of the best Italian dishes and pastas we both had ever had and it allowed us to relax and enjoy the variety of courses that were both ordered and complementary as part of the bday surprise. This is not a restaurant where they try to rush you or turn over tables. Your experience is most important to the staff and owners. We will absolutely be back and support this wonderful restaurant. Splurge and order the homemade pastas. Worth every penny!
Excellent ambience with a nice outdoor patio. Nice wine list especially with Italian wine options. Very nice homemade pasta with tasty sauces. Excellent service. Complimentary biscotti and Lemoncello after the meal. Pricy but not out of line for fine dining.
Would go back.
We ate at Marcellino Ristorante for my husband's birthday. The weather was glorious so we sat on the patio and enjoyed dusk and night skies. The service was great, the ambience was wonderful and the food was super-wonderful. My filetto was perfectly prepared and luscious and my husband's fish "soup" was beautiful and perfect. The chocolate mousse was close to perfect -- silky smooth and rich chocolate flavor.
The best way to sum up our dinner was my husband's comment, "This is like being in Italy!" Thank you for a wonderful evening.
