Visited for the special lunch menu, 2 or 3 courses at reasonable prices. Excellent food from satisfactory choices. Authentic Italian with charming owner / waiter. We shall certainly make another visit to this lovely little establishment.

We asked if they had a table for 2 and were disappointed to be offered an awkward table in the middle of the room. Asked if that was the only table and we were informed that... More

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.
