Top notch old school Italian restaurant, relatively recently relocated from Chambersburg neighborhood in Trenton. Very good traditional food (from pasta to chicken to veal and more) in a very pretty restaurant with attentive and friendly service. Great for groups but also pleasant for two. Highly recommend if you’re missing Sinatra on the radio, a fine Chianti and veal saltimbocca. And very reasonably priced. A gem.

This was the second time I have eaten at Marcilio's Kitchen in the past month. I went with my daughter, my son, and his girlfriend. The food was excellent and the drinks were sizeable (no half glasses at full price). We had a great table in the back of the restaurant. The service was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable without being overbearing. I had the salmon, which was very good. The muscles are especially good -- the red sauce is to die for. Highly recommended ... an excellent value

We were seated near a family party so it was loud. The calamari was tender and delicious. The veal parm was tasty but too thin for the amount of breading so hard to really taste the veal. Cappuccino with Nutella, genius! It is a great place for Italian comfort food!

We decided to try this restaurant because of the good reviews we had read. We were VERY disappointed! First, we sat at the bar, and the bartender (our server) was grumpy and unpleasant, (and pretty slow). Then, the food: we started with the calamari and the artichoke appetizers. Both were deep fried (not a surprise) and both very greasy. The complimentary salad was fine ... spring mix with a simple balsamic dressing ... nothing special but adequate. For our dinner, we ordered the chicken cacciatore, described on the menu as their most popular dish. Well, I don't know why it would be. Although the sauce was tasty, the meat was very dry and overcooked! Very disappointing! The best dishes we had were the pencil points with marinara, which came with the chicken, and the roasted vegetables, which were nicely prepared and tasty.
In addition a glass of wine that at other places costs $9-$10 was $12 and since there was no wine list by the glass, we were surprised to see that when we got the bill.
This restaurant was quite pricy, even though we only ordered 1 entree.
All in all, we will not return.

One of my daughters and I had the salmon, which was particularly good. My other daughter had the chicken catchatori, which she also enjoyed. We shared the muscles as an appetizer ... another good choice, especially the brooth

This was our second visit to Marsilio’s in its current location. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and the service and the atmosphere. I had the seared scallops and my husband had the meatball/chicken Parmesan combination. Dessert (pumpkin cheesecake) and tortofu was excellent. Even though it’s quite a drive for us to get to Marsilio’s we will definitely be back.
