Went for dinner and the food was good. They were out of the lamb ragu pasta so had lasagna. Food was good and service was a little slow for a half full crowd.

The wines by the glass choices were a bit weak. The Chianti was not worth the $12 change. There was no wine list that I saw.

I will probably try the restaurant again but hope its better or won't go back after that.

Uninspired. That's how I'd describe my dish. Black rice risotto with a few pieces of salmon. No "wow factor" let alone taste. Rather bland. Cesar salad was ok. We shared the ricotta cheese cake with berry sauce for dessert. It was a bit heavy for our taste, but tasty. The bread that came with the meal was really good. Service was slow. Not sure why all the fuss.

Overall enjoyed the food and service, which was attentive though not necessarily friendly.
The one issue was that there was a 20% service charge which was on the bill, but no notification on the menu that a charge would be added.
Whether one should add pay 18 or 20% should be the guest’s option and not a forced charge. Also including ST charge to calculate a service charge is not acceptable

Marcellos is deceptive, they are situated in a strip mall off a main road in Thousand Oaks... not what you would perceive as fine dining. I am happy to tell you that their food is exquisite.

The service was phenomenal, the waitress was on target being attentive but not over bearing. She talked us through the menu, the wine menu and the specials.

We had a delightful chardonnay which went incredibly well with the home made paster. I had the linguini with clams which was to die for.

Top that off with the panna cotta or the tiramisu.

I highly recommend this place, it is small and there was hardly anyone there for lunch but I can see that this would be busy at peak weekend dinner times. Bellissimo
