Marcello restaurant

We have been to this establishment several times. The noise has always been bad. Can't help that, but last Saturday night we went there, had reservations, but the service was terrible. We had to wait, at least 5 minutes, before anyone came to our table. Then another 5 minutes for our cocktails. Finished our cocktails before anyone came to take our order. Terrible. The noise was terrible, the food good, the service was terrible. We will never go again.

An off night, perhaps.

I have been eating and getting food to go from Marcello's for over six years now and I have been a very loyal customer. Last night, I got a chicken liver dinner and eggplant parmigiana dinner to go and I have to say that I was quite disappointed with the quality of the food.

I mean I just didn't feel the usual love! Where is the love?

The salad didn't have as much mushed-up goodness, and my chicken livers were dark and freaky looking, and not very delish.

I certainly hope this is just a fluke. An off night, perhaps.

They never scrimp just because it's for to go.

Always satisfied with the good food, although long waits on Friday night sometimes when you have no reservation. Parking isn't always easy too so I just order take out and it is always great.

They never scrimp just because it's for to go.

Go for the Pasta

Get the carbonara or matriciana--you can't go wrong. Their minestrone soup is also delicious. The portions might be large, but the upside is that you will have totally delectable leftovers for weeks. (The pasta is totally freezable--just thaw overnight and add some water when re-heating.) It's the best pasta outside of Italy I've EVER had.

You guys are great!

Ah yes, Marcellos! The old standby at Taraval street. Went here last weekend in the middle of the drenching rain. As usual, a warm greeting from Marcello himself. The waiters all know my boyfriend. It's like coming home to family. I can't say enough about this restaurant.

They one of the last ones brave enough to have chicken livers, or sauteed sweetbreads in the menu. Oh wait a stinking minute, I did I mention the Sanka? They have that on the menu too.

I think they definitely serve whatever pleases them, and good for them too! You go! The food is good. The salads are specially yummy. You guys are great!

Mushroom friendly!

My wife found this local spot on citysearch and since I love italian food we decided to try it> The service was just fabulous, the waiter explained everything on the menu to us and did an excellent job of making us feel right at home. The menu has a mushroom on the back and it turns out the owner of the place goes up to the moutains occasionally to find the largest and most flavorful wild mushrooms around. We really enjoyed ourselves and think this place is something special. We highly recommend it!!

Great Old Place

On our visit to this restaurant we were pleasantly surprised. The place doesn't look like much from the outside, (or the inside) but we had a great dinner. The Veal Marcello and Chicken Dore was perfect. The house salad and dressing was delicious. The place is full of regulars who seem to know the waitstaff very well. The waitstaff was hilarious and very attentive. They really made us feel at home.

surprise

My husband & I have been driving by this place for a couple years and were honestly weary of the dreary outdoor exterior. The other night we were craving italian and decided to give it a shot. We were pleasantly surprised to find a white table-clothed, tuxedo wait-staff, large rounded old-shool bar and loud italian opera restaurant awaiting us. The night was incredible - GREAT food, nice pinot grigio and friendly service. The minestrone was tasty as were our main courses. It is my favorite local place to eat!

Long Time Favorite

Marcello's has been a long time favorite of mine since I was in High school in SF. The chicken ""ferri"" is to die for and the house salad dressing is wonderful.
