Best Pasta Primavera I've had. It may not be the best to others, but it is to me. Way better than any I've ordered in Dallas, San Antonio, etc, etc and other large cities.

Nicely updated decor, I enjoy the bar area with great food options, and they recently updated their wine selection. Food is always great, with various food fare from seafood to steaks. They also host a Chef dinner regularly, so inquire with the staff to be placed on their email list.

This place is not along the bay or ocean but close by. We had a ceviche appetizer which was fresh and very tasty. The main dining room was not open as it was too early so sat in the bar area. Service was fair...they were busy but attended to us frequently-just not super friendly.

Terrific food and drinks. Friendly staff and affordable prices. Marcello’s was recommended to us by a few people. They called it the best food in the area and I would have to agree! Wish we would have went earlier in our trip. David and Tomas are great bartenders. Thank you for a great time and all of you recommendations!

This restaurant has changed a lot since we've moved down here. It's now a fine dining coastal restaurant with proper chef prepared food. The food is brilliant. I'd give it 6 stars if I could.
