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.
We luv this restaurant because they use Top quality ingredients in every dish and for the chef’s creative approach. The escargot were outstanding, as was the veal with black truffles. Highly recommend.
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.
The food was excellent as was the service.
A perfect dining experience! Everything was memorable. Attentive staff, exceptional food,amazing wine list for a great value. The warm zabaglione is a must!!!!
Cozy and good wine and food
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.
5 star service, yummy food great for a special occasion
Except for the fact that it is a bit noisy, La sirena is a perfect dining experience...delicious food and attentive service. We have been before and will go again.
This is a favorite restaurant. Food is superb. Decor and ambiance fine. Wine selection is excellent; better than most restaurants. We have never been disappointed.
Birthday. Brought one candle. Perfect.
Great food and service.
Great food and service. Incredible wine list. The fish was perfectly prepared.
Good food and service. Very crowded on Saturday nights, but they handled the crush well. Large and diverse wine list.
Outstanding meal and service
Perfect classic dining
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.
as it has been for many years this is the BEST Italian food restaurant in all of Palm Beach County and most likely in all of southern Florida.. You can not find better!
Another wonderful experience at La Sirena!
Home made pasta
Easy to enjoy the chopped la Sirena salad!
Everyone so gracious and helpful!
this is the best rest. palm beach county.
everything about the rest. is top shelf. Marcello is very gifted
service is exceptional, the dinning room set up is stark and clean
great selection of wines and all of the dinner specials are really special.
it truly is a great experience.
thks so much.
We always enjoy eating at La Sirena! The food, wine and service are stellar. It's a special dining experience
La Sirena is and always has been a lovely gem of a restaurant with the most outstanding food and wine. The service is impeccable.
Outstanding food! A little noisy, but the quality and taste of the food was exceptional! One of the best meals we have had dining out! Definitely will be back.
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.
Enjoy every chance to dine and enjoy the great food and service.
Tables are very close together,but we were lucky to get one that was big enough for four.
Best Dover sole in Fl
Everything was outstanding. From the service to the exceptional quality of the food. Wonderful!!!
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.
This restaurant is the benchmark for incredible food and exceptional service which makes each meal there a special occasion!
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.
Authentic Italian! Doesn't get any better than this!
Always a truly extraordinary dining experience. We recommend La Sirena when asked for a great restaurant choice and the the reviews are five star.
We always enjoy our time at La Sirena. We spend most of our anniversaries there for a guaranteed amazing meal!
