The ambiance was nice, the food was good, the service was good, too but overall it wasn't worth the money.
I've dined in much nicer restaurants with outstanding food and ended up paying less.

1.0  Dined 7 days ago

Over priced, over rated, expensive, small portions, that were basically tasteless.
Drinks, likewise, poorly constructed.
Moreover, Chef M. had the audacity to argue with a customer whose food order was admittedly lost by either the server or the kitchen.

Two couples enjoyed this very nice restaurant close to Scottsdale waterfront. One app tuna tartare was excellent. Special ravioli entree was delicious. Other entrees pasta with clams and salmon were also very good. Excellent service and ambiance.

I have eaten at Marcellino's 4 or 5 times now, and always recommend it to friends and visitors. I grew up in New York and spent some time in Italy, and this is one of the best Italian restaurants I have ever eaten in, the best of Northern Italian, Southern Italian, and Scottsdale creative cuisine. Delicious home-made pastas, we also had tasty mussels (one of us had white sauce, other red, both great), and perfectly done salmon with the lunch special (including a glass of vino for a great deal). Server yesterday, I think her name was Jessica, made the experience even better, she was comfortable, casual, and funny (not pretentious, which can happen with food this good). You always see Marcellino back in the kitchen, so you know he's not just phoning it in, but making sure it's all done right.

It was our 58th wedding anniversary. Service was attentive and we enjoyed meeting Marcellino. We talked ourselves into the Tasting Menu. One of the salads, Pecorino and pear slices in greens with lemon dressing was outstanding, and we really appreciated the carefully chosen paired wines. The rest of the food was good but not amazing. The bill was surprisingly high. Our fault for not checking in advance. It would have been a terrific evening at a lower price, but it did not meet my expectations for such expenditure.
