Food was excellent. Scallop appetizer in pesto was terrific. Pasta entrees were very good. Unique handmade pastas were paired with creative sauces. The kitchen definitely knows what it's doing...Everything was also ridiculously overpriced. This place would be great if the boss was picking up the tab, but there are plenty of equally good but more reasonable priced places in the neighborhood, some even in the same building.
While on the expensive side, the value is there. Pasta is fresche and prepared perfectly. Consider the quality of food and service to be equivalent to a top steakhouse but with outstanding pasta. Other dishes are very good as well but the excellent pasta specials are the draw.
Our server was overworked because the restaurant was curiously understaffed, considering it was peak season on a Saturday night. Not to mention, she wasn’t very pleasant. It took us 10 minutes to give a drink order, 30 more to receive our appetizer, and 30 more to place our dinner order. The pasta was very good, but any noodle substitutions had to be run by the chef because he doesn’t like changes. Really? You’re serving pasta, not painting a Picasso! Not worth the high price and less than average service
Wonderful restaurant featuring fresh pasta, a great wine list and supreme service!
Magical experience, wonderful ambience for an evening out with a friend who had never dined at Marcellino’s before
Marcellino's is never anything short of amazing. I have been dining here for a few years now and each time is just as good if not better than the last. The ambiance is perfect. Dimmed lighting, live music and dark interior. The food is always perfect and the wine pairing was spot on. The waiters are always extremely knowledgeable with their wine pairings which I appreciate. Both the owner and the gentleman singing that night came over and said hi and even gave us a copy of his newest music. It's just always an all around good experience.
The portions were small for the price we paid. Even the vegetables, which cost nothing, were skimpy. A side of pasta, instead of mashed potatoes would have went better with an Italian dish. Also, spinach would have been good with the rolled chicken breast with Fontina cheese. The wait were nice and helpful
It was my husbands birthday and we met my daughter and family. My one year old grandson was coming. The high chair I requested was already set up at our reserved table. The waiter was great. He made sure my grandson got his food quickly which keeps him occupied. Have been here before and will be there another time. Great food.
Went for New Year's Eve and it was nice to not have a prix fixe menu at a place with live music. We were sitting inside then went outside due to how loud the music was and a singer that wasn't the very best. Sitting outside was much better with the heaters on; it was very comfortable. I ordered the Scaloppine Gorgonzola which was very good, thinly sliced veal in a wonderful sauce that came with carrots (that were a little too crunchy), zucchini and broccolini. My husband had the caprese salad which he liked but the roasted peppers were so bitter that he couldn't eat those and after trying myself agreed. I was surprised that they wanted to charge us for the bread but the waiter took it off the bill since they only had a baguette on NYE and he raved on how good the focaccia bread was but then realized they weren't serving it. For dessert we ordered tiramisu which was good with a nice presentation of a flaming sugar cube. Service was good, attentive but not overbearing. What was strange is after our entree the waiter asked if he could bring back our compliments to the chef. We were dumbfounded and taken by surprise no restaurant had ever asked us that before.
