Our family has come here for many years because it is right in our neighborhood and has a parking lot which is few and far between in the city! The food is consistently good, and the waiters are always so friendly and helpful.

My wife and I don't order delivery very often...pizza or Italian beef here, Thai food there...and Marcello's ribs. It wouldn't taste any better if we were sitting in the restaurant at 645 West North Avenue. But ribs are messy--or I'm messy with ribs--so whenever we get a taste for ribs, usually once a month, we order delivery from Marcello's. We've... More

My family of 15 people dined here today to celebrate my dad's 87th birthday. The server accidentally spilled red wine all over my sister and I clothes and it got into her hair. We had to literally beg for cloths to attempt to clean ourselves from the red wine stains. My purse was ruined and we had to clean the... More

I've come here for years and the quality is always good. The menu is large. The broasted chicken and twice baked (regular or sweet) potatoes are among my favorites. This isn't a romantic venue, but there's parking and it's perfect for families and friends.

On our way shopping on North Avenue, stopped for early dinner at Marcello's. Service was good, restaurant was big and had nice ambiance but the food was bland. Ordered the calamari which was cooked well but was not served with marinara sauce. The eggplant parm was undercooked and the sauce was bland. Also ordered a NY style pizza with sausage... More

Casual dining Italian restaurant and bakery located a couple block east of the Halsted & North Avenue shopping area. Nice selection of standard Italian cuisine plus pizza. Has a full bar. There is free parking available here which is great. Service was good, prices are reasonable. There is a little bakery/coffee shop attached to the restaurant, too. Portions are big.... More

I've had this pizza twice now. It was much more NY style than Chicago style. I really liked it - lots of cheese, notable sauce and crispy crust.

I love their Sunday brunch. We've been here several times and it's always delicious. My husband enjoys the omelet station. I appreciate the variety. My favorite: the apple crisp! Our server was 2 days on the job and she was great. I think her name was Angie. Love, love, love this place! For right at $20 a person, it's still... More
