They were great to serve a table of 14 of us, with lots of kids. We asked for outside which was wonderful. They have umbrellas to shade the sun and the staff was attentive and friendly.

Not a lot of information necessary except all aspects of this establishment were fabulous! Great food, great service, great ambiance. What more is there to say.

It was busy so maybe the chef forgot to include the ingredients promised in the special of the night. Our waitress did not seem to care that I complained it had no flavor. She shrugged and rushed off.

This is hugely disappointing to me. We pride ourselves on attentive service, and it does not sound like you received it. Please contact me directly with more details so that I may investigate further and fix the problem. Thank you!

Our group of 8 enjoyed a lovely evening at Marcello's. The food was high quality in every way, the service was perfect. Our waiter was efficient and friendly; he provided wonderful service. It's a definite stop for us the next time we're in Sunriver.
