What a pleasant surprise.  We we're here at the start of Phase II of reopening from the COVID-19 fiasco.  Further this was Memorial Day weekend so most places had long waits.  The restaurant was very conscientious about cleanliness and observing social distancing but still treated us like valued guests.  The service was top notch and ... read more

Food was delicious. I had the fish and shrimp over orzo in a cream tequila sauce... So good! Hubby had the brunch burger (?). It was ginormous! On a bagel with bacon and an egg! And they had complimentary garlic bread served with warmed olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette👌. Mario the bartender was awesome and knowledgeable. Will de ... read more

Amazing food. Steak and scallops, OMG! Ribs, don't need a knife, cuts like butter. Pizza, burgers, you can't go wrong. Also observe social distance.

Marcello´ is definitely one of best restaurants in the SPI area! The server was extremely knowledgeable and when we were ready for dessert, he brought out the tray full of delicious desserts! This restaurant gets a 58 out of 10 from me!!

This place has a pretty good selection of foods including breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, salads, pasta, and desserts and more. The food was hot and fresh and the staff was friendly. The only thing that was not good is the servers not knowing the correct menu items and what was being served for the day. Other than that would recomm ... read more

Excellent cuisine. Definitely a place to try while spending a weekend at South Padre. The four stars is because an unusual amount of time passed before we where actually attended.
xavier gonzales via - Feb 19, 2020
I feel Marcello's must be under new management since my last visit. Wonderful decor, great service, and very tasty food. We had a very large group-18, and they took care of us in an orderly and efficient manner. New ambiance is very nice.

We have been coming to Marcellos now for quite some time.  Even when it was the old "Italian Rest" now it's a little more modern.  Had a great facelift done.  Now that the bar was remodeled and opened up into the dining area we spend most of our time in the bar area now since it is so inviting.  Half price bottles of wine on Wed and ... read more

You will not be disappointed. From the tasteful menu to the relaxed atmosphere. Marcellos is perfect for brunch, lunch or dinner. Even business meetings are more productive when you meet in the cozy bar area! Chef Bettina and her team bring quality to the table with every meal. Highly recommend!!!
