First time dining at Marcello’s and after the experience it won’t be our last. Food was outstanding, service was excellent & the ambience was great. Felt like we were eating a homemade dinner at a home in Italy. All the employees were very nicely dressed, friendly & very professional. Great job!!! Will see you again soon.

The food is exceptional. The wine list is one of the most impressive we have ever seen. The location is not ideal but don’t let that deter you...it’s a 10.

So the hype was big, but the experience didn't live up to the hype: condescending maitre d' (seriously?) who seemed more annoyed with telling us about the specials than excited for the delight they promised; a waiter whose knowledge of the wine list was embarrassingly lacking; food that was good but not great; and cramped tables. At not yet 50, we were the youngest in the restaurant at 7:30. Seemed like an once-lovely dining experience of a certain genre that has lost its appeal and frayed at the edge, along with the diners who swore by it 15 years ago and still think it's hot potatoes in a world of increasing variety and far better food. No need to return.

Food was good but disappointed they charged for requesting pasta from penne to linguini. Should have informed us of up charge of $15 per each change. That seems steep.

Service was great. Food was delicious. It was sort of expensive BUT the service made it worth it. As soon as we were seated, bread was delivered & our drink order was taken. Shortly after, the waiter came over to go over the specials. Out order was taken quickly & food served very quickly. I liked that you could order a lot of the pasta dishes in an appetizer size. I had room for dessert!

The food and service here are always excellent. My only qualm is that the tables are a bit close together, so quiet conversation is difficult. One of our favorite places to eat regardless.

Marcello’s serves delicious freshly made superb authentic Italian food in an impeccably refined atmosphere with an excellent well trained and attentive service staff. The menu offers a well chosen variety of Italian specialties in all of the various dinner categories. The nightly specials are also varied and may feature seasonal local foods. When it comes to wines, Marcello’s list is difficult to top! This Italian restaurant is a true winner.

We had to wait a while for our table; no one offered us a seat at the bar or a drink even though no one at the bar.
They had it set up for dining though.
Once sat, we were given the wine list but no menu. Our friends were surprised by this as you can’t order your wine without any idea of what you’re eating. Specials were soon quickly listed and all sounded good; no pricing mentioned. Next game the menus. Ok finally. Now they seem to be in a hurry to get the order and if you hesitate for s moment about which wine you might want,
Then waiter quickly says I’ll come back.
Acted way too busy to be bothered with any hesitation or even a question.
Food just wasn’t that good to warrant that kind of treatment and really, does any food or restaurant succeed treating people this way.
Nothing stands out as exceptional and the check was substantial. Many other Italian restaurants Id recommend before this crowded, noisy, rude establishment.

We had an early (5:30) dinner reservation. And we’re promptly seated. The service is prompt and attentive. You can’t go wrong with either a special dish or straight from the extensive menu.

Expensive, but worth it.

Excellent food and service.Fairly high prices. Tables much too close together to be comfortable. Only complaint on the food is that the same vegetables have been served for years and are in need of an upgrade.

Wow! One of the top five dining experiences I’ve ever had. I eat out often and my dinner a La Sirena was top notch in all areas. From the recommended wine, to the fantastic canelonni, and the stuffed veal cutlet... I was so upset, and so stuffed, when the meal ended. All of the servers were extremely attentive without hovering. It was the perfect experience. I will be sure to be back every time I’m in the area.

If your idea of having dinner with 50 or so of your closest strangers, and I mean really close, then this is your spot. The food I wish had been worth the anticipation, good but not wonderful. The best things about it is the staff and the wine list.
I wish it could of been better truly.

I had read all the great reviews and just had to try it. I had gnocchi as an appetizer. It was a huge portion and delicious. My wife had salad. Then she had ravioli. All pastas are homemade and very good. I had a great veal dish. Service was really excellent. They have a superb wine list. Save room for desert.
The only negative is poor acoustics and the place is noisy. It makes it hard to have a conversation or a romantic dinner. That being said we will return.

By far the best Italian food in Palm Beach County. Incredible Italian wine list, many of value, but bring a rich friend who loves wine. Desserts were the only weakness, Too much gelatin in panna cotta; not enough air in the boozy zabalione, both topped with the most delicious raspberries I've ever tasted. Will be back soon.
