Decent food but not great. Ranch dressing was awful, fettuccine alfredo was good and very generous portion. Needs music, very awkward silence.

Food was decent (pizza and broasted chicken). Not to be considered fine dining but certainly reasonably priced.

Had Sunday brunch here with a group and enjoyed the brunch buffet. Pizza, bacon, pancakes and omelets to order along with the usual steamed vegetables, salads and sweets. Very filling for less than $20 per person.

First, the good news: The date for the closing of Marcello's location at 645 West North Avenue in the Lincoln Park neighborhood has been extended from July 1 to October 1 or maybe beyond. Apparently the real estate developers haven't got their act together yet...More

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...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.
