    We are pretty regular customers and this was only a so so night for Marcelo’s. I dropped my wife and father off in front of the restaurant while I went to find parking. My wife and father were seated quickly. I was disappointed to come in and find the seating request I put in the reservation wasn’t honored (seat in bar area versus side room) even though there was room on the bar side. I guess I should have mentioned it beforehand to my wife. We just don’t love the side room as it is so loud in that part with the lower ceilings. Anyway, service really wasn’t great. We were through two baskets of bread before our waiter even came for a drink order. Tables seated after us had their drinks before we saw our waiter. When he did show we then were rushed to order everything, drinks, apps and entrees. Just some missteps between service, seating, being put at a table better suited for two than three. Food was great and I guess that’s what matters but it just wasn’t a relaxing meal. Next time…

    Marcello’s is a very nice atmosphere, A few friends went for lunch. We thought the food was overpriced and there wasn’t really a lunch menu. Probably won’t go back.

    While the food was good, the place was way too noisy, even in the separate dining room. I was very disappointed in the 3.5% credit card charge.

    We usually enjoy the dining experience at Marcello's. Food & happy hour prices were good. However, last night was disappointing due to to the lack of service we received at the table. A wait of fifteen minutes for our glass of wine (not crowded) and almost 30 mins. for our check. We had more service from the manager, who happened to notice the situation. Needs to be addressed!

    Overall a pleasant experience. The Pasta Fagioli soup could have been better for the price ($10). Watery and not much pasta or fagioli. The other entrees were decent.

    Good is delicious and service was great. My only feedback is that it’s too dark and difficult to read the menu. We had to use the flashlights on our phones. The table next to us did the same thing. Not sure if it was the location of our tables.

    The pizza takes good but it was soggy. The chopped antipasto was good and the drinks delicious. We had dinner at 5:15 on a Saturday night and the food took too long to come out. The restaurant filled up by around six so I do t know why it took so long. And paying an extra 3.5% to use a credit card, on top of already raised prices, is not acceptable.

    Fun night for party of 6 for Halloween weekend. Our server was Kristina and she was fantastic! She was attentive, personable and offered suggestions. Each course of the meal were served with ample time in between to enjoy and not feel rushed. Little noisy .. but really just adds to the vibe. Reservations highly recommended.
