Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Went here as a final meal of our holiday. We have eaten all over the world and we have to say that our meal this evening was out of this world. The flavours were simply glorious. The service was brilliant as well. Italian food doesn’t...get better than this. Thank you for making our evening wonderful !!!More

Phoned at short notice to book a table for lunch. My wife and I visited with our dog. We had a warm greeting and were even given a gravy bone (our dog was also given a treat...) Our server was excellent and attentive from the...off. We ordered 2 pizzas and some fries for the table. Food arrived in a good amount of time. The pizzas were great - really good value for money, with superb amounts of toppings, cooked to perfection. The fries were cooked just how we like them as well. We finished with some chocolate and lemon cannolis - superb. Overall atmosphere and ambience was lovely and relaxing. We can't wait to come back (neither can Hugo the cockapoo) Thank you!More

Visited Marcello’s after seeing all the good reviews on here, but left feeling rather underwhelmed. The food was *OK*. The menu was rather basic. The service wasn’t great. The restaurant itself was very cold & lacked any atmosphere despite being in a really niche building...& nicely decorated. Overall it was a disappointing experience, but it has the potential to be incredible.More

We had the quattro stagione and the mushroom and goat’s cheese pizzas. Absolutely excellent. Delicious, crisp but not overcooked, base and fresh toppings. Desserts were ice cream and a couple of the cannoli - these were chewy with creamy hazelnut and pistachio cream fillings. Service...was friendly and helpful. It’s only a small place so probably best to book, but they also do takeaway.More

Visited for a birthday meal. When booking we were advised that there was a large party booked that evening and we were given to option to dine before them. The staff were very pleasant and knowledgeable. The food was amazing. Haven’t been for years before...this and we’ve been missing out that’s for sure.More

Visited Marcello’s on a Saturday evening with friends, we were disorganised and had a couple of friends running late but is was no issue for the fabulous staff who kept us happy with drinks and olives until our food was ready. As 1 friend was...very late they took her order immediately once she arrived and managed to get her food out within a couple of minutes so we all got to eat together. We had a mixture of pasta dishes and pizza, vegan diet catered for and it was all delicious.More

Lovely little find of a restaurant. Friendly, happy staff which seems to be rare these days. We both had pasta dishes which were really tasty and hot. Will definitely be back.

Met a friend for lunch on a very cold day and wanted a substantial lunch to warm us up. The pasta is really good and we both very much enjoyed the lunch. The only drawback is the door, which doesn't close when someone comes in...or out - so repeatedly it let the freezing air in, despite the waitress doing her very best.More
