I had the Meatball, Bacon and Pepperoni pizza and it was delicous. It was a lovely evening, my only complaints were it was very quiet so if you love an atmosphere of people talking then this isn't for you. My other complaint is the staff, we specifically asked if the "wine of the day" was Italian and the member of... More

Hubby and I took an old friend for dinner here. Not like I remember from years ago. Not much atmosphere and we were disappointed with our pizzas. Expected better from an Italian restaurant ☹️

Visited Marcello with some friends in between Christmas & New Year. We pre-booked the table and on arrival found the venue to be vibrant and busy. We were welcomed by a helpful young lady who looked after us all night with excellent service and smile. Food portions were generous and presentation, flavour and taste excellent. Definitely will be returning in... More

Family meal for 4, friendly greeting and great service. Had the calamari which is the best I have eaten and I have tried lots all over the world. Pizzas were lovely and our children said they were better than dominoes. Good menu but I have to recommend the food. Much better than all those Italian chain restaurants. Definitely going back.

A very pleasant atmosphere with good service, lovely food at good prices and a simple but good wine list. Noticed that they had an upstairs 20 seater with its own bar - good for large groups as downstairs could get a bit crowded.

Surprisingly quiet, but excellent food (pizza and pasta dishes were authentic and tasty) and the best panna cotta I've had. Good service, enjoyable evening.

We turned up on spec on a Friday night (4 adults, 3 children) and the owner was very helpful. Although we had to go upstairs as all the tables downstairs were booked this actually worked out very well for our party. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was great.

We have visited this restaurant before and had enjoyed our meals. However on this occasion we were not so pleased. Our friends are vegetarians and that is why we choose it for dinner one night. One of our guests asked for a pasta dish which was not on the menu but they agreed to make and he was happy. The... More

I visited this restaurant recently with family. The downstairs room is fairly small and we were sat by the door which was quite draughty. Service was fairly slow but I could only see one waitress so I guess that is to be expected, not ideal though as we felt pressured to leave not long after they closed at 21.30. The... More
