Quality at reasonable prices
I had the flounder and the wife had the portebella mushroom for lunch. We were pleased to have white table cloths and napkins. The fresh bread was outstanding, the food great, and the service impeccable. Will definitely recommend to friends!

Love this Italian restaurant!
The food at Marcellos is homemade and delicious. Love the ambiance. They have added a bar next door which is very pleasant as well. And who can knock their 1/2 price bottles of wine on Wednesday? Their pasta and pizza is amazing.

We ate here our first night of our trip (10/14/17) and it set the bar high! Even though my husbands order wasn't exactly what he ordered (asked for alfredo sauce and got marinara -he didn't say anything but I'm sure they would have fixed it) he loved it. We had a party of 5 and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals.
