Though the reviews on this place didn't look very good and we always go by the reviews on TA, when we saw the GF menu we decided to give it a try. Boy are we glad we did! The rolls were to die for and that's a feat in its' self if you GF people out there know what I'm talking about. Our meals were delicious, so good we decided to come back our last night in town! My only hesitation on giving this place an excellent rating, was the price : I have to agree with some of the other posts here, that for pasta, the prices are a little steep and for us GF's, they add on $3.00 to the already pricey dish!

This is an average Italian restaurant with above averaged prices. Dinner for two was $60, including a $12 cup (not bowl) of minestrone soup. The toasted ravioli and berry dessert (parfait style) were good, but I would not return because of the outrageous prices.

We had been to Bellini's many times at both locations. We always considered it above average Italian.We were told that Marcello's was really Bellini's with a new name. This time everything about the meal was "average". Not bad, not exceptional. The restaurant was a little noisy for 5PM. Service was fine. The prices are higher than expected. $20 for a pasta dish should get you something "above average". They need to do something extra to justify the high prices. Maybe unlimited salad?? Huge portions ?? Maybe we hit it on a bad night but both meals just OK.
Did not meet expectations.

Service is fast and food was hot and good. Good variety. Good atmosphere. One person at our table was not satisfied with an alcoholic beverage she ordered but there was no offer to replace it for something else until we had finished dining.

What a pleasant surprise considering how low this restaurant ranked on tripadvisor. We were in the mood for italian no matter what and decided to go anyway. What a great decision. We could have made a meal just on their homemade breads (focaccia and 3 cheese) with olive oil. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the salad that comes pre-tossed in Marcello's own house recipe dressing (that thankfully is sold in the Hannaford supermarket chain under their Inspirations line of foods so we can have more any time we like at home). I was very thankful to see numerous veal options on the menu, my personal favorite. Both our entrees were very tasty. Portions were so big we sadly had no room for dessert. We did see the dessert tray when presented at the table next to us. Everything looked decadent (and again enormous portions easily split between two). Our server (who happened to also be the dining room manager) was very personable and attentive. We felt so appreciated despite the place being packed. Go early (they do get busy) but whatever you do: GO!
