We chose this restaurant on a whim as we were driving around looking for food this morning. We had no idea what we were walking into and this place more than exceeded our expectations. The food was delicious and the portions were enough to satisfy out hunger until it's time for dinner. The staff was courteous and considerate of the p ... read more

Food was overall good. A little slow to get food to the table and we were one of the first two tables to be there of the day. Large portion on the chocolate chip pancakes. Baguette french toast was delicious. Breakfast tacos my husband said were pretty good. Waitress was great and checked on us as needed. I think the kids menu needs ... read more

AMAZING experience. Adding this restaurant to the list of (five or so?) food spots in the country that I would travel to just to eat there again!! Food options were plentiful. The food itself? EXQUISITE. In my party of 6 for brunch, I was able to try everyone’s meal and didn’t find anything less than delicious— breakfast tacos, chic ... read more

Outside tonight. The food was exceptional and the service was wonderful. Fresh ceviche, fresh shrimp, fresh crab cakes. Delicious! Martinis (vodka and gin) and tequila for our margarita drinker were all superb! Highly recommend this restaurant! Can't wait to return.

On our way back to Houston we stopped at this restaurant, really nice clean and cozy. The food here is delicious. We had chilaquiles and the three tacos. We're so glad we ate here. Food and service is top notch!

Family had all tried different things. It was all from great to excellent! A little expensive, but well worth it. We would definitely recommend the red snapper with shrimp and the scallops. Thank you to Vicki for being a great waitress!

Two words guys: garlic bread. Hands down the best I've ever had. Went here for brunch and got pancakes and bacon, and they were delicious. My only regret is that we went on our way out of town as our last meal, so while we saved the best for last we also missed an opportunity to go multiple times! I will be back!

I came here with a group of 9 during a time when restaurants were opening at limited capacity and social distancing was in full effect. We were staying on South Padre Island but lines for eateries were to long so we decided to check off the island. The wait to be seated was about 10 minutes which was amazing considering social distan ... read more

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

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!!

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

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.
