This is another of the good restaurants in Bordentown, NJ. The decor is attractive. The menu is large with typical Italian offerings. The food was quite good--and has been for some time. The wine list was OK, but nothing special unless you have a particular fondness for Italian wines. The service was attentive and pleasant. The piped in music seemed... More

I came here with my husband and my toddler. The service was great, pizza was amazing & atmosphere was wonderful! It has been totally renovated yet still has that old rustic feel. Pizza is coal brick oven and delicious - thin crust, perfectly cooked & hot.

We went to Marcello's on Halloween with friends. The restaurant was super crowded. The service was good, but it took forever to get our food. When it finally arrived, it wasn't very warm. We didn't send it back because we wanted to eat and go trick or treating. We were there for over two hours. Food was decent. Not sure... More

This restaurant was better when it was a storefront pizzeria. Our first (and last) visit was 10/31/2016. The restaurant is very noisy due to its poor acoustics. The food was average at best and only lukewarm. My Chicken Scarpariello was made with second rate chicken ( tough, tasteless, and with skin ) and included several chicken wings ($28). The Chicken...

My boyfriend and I decided to stop here for dinner last night (Sunday, 10/30/16) after walking around Bordentown for a bit. I had been dying to eat here for quite some time, but it's quite upsetting how disappointing our experience was. It started at the front door. The host was not very pleasant and seemed quite irritated. There were plenty... More

Came here with my son after a soccer game. We waited a very long time before the server came to use and took our order. The pizza took longer than normal to cook! (I thought coal fired pizza ovens were hot and fast?). Not sure why it took such a long time but we got our pizza and drinks and... More

It was a beautiful warm fall night so we decided to sit outside and chose Marcello's. They have done a fantastic renovation with a sliding glass roof, the place looks great..so far so good. We we were seated immediately at a nice table under the stars..There was a table of men who were obviously drinking next to us who were... More

It was our first time here, after learning they had great sangria (they do). The atmosphere with recent renovations makes this place very inviting. Loved the food! But the service was something I hadn't seen in a long time - a very personable server and other servers stopping by to see if we were ok. We certainly were not left... More

I absolutely love this place, I have been going here since I was a kid. Nothing but great experiences since when I'm there. The food is remarkable, no question about it. All of the plates are delicious, big portions all for a great price. But I wanted to write about the service. Vinny is an absolute gem, and he has... More

Long over due for a restaurant where you can have a nice meal, appetizer or just a pizza. Our favorite spot, even for dinner, is sitting at the bar. Love it even more when the roof is open. A vibrant bar scene with nice middle aged crowd. Wish the bar had a pole for your feet. They are trying for... More
