This restaurant is a staple for our annual trek to SPI. This was our 4th trip to Marcello’s and is was excellent again. Service is always very good and the food is wonderful. Highly recommend Marcello’s. We will be back next year on our return to SPI!

The chef owner has had Sunday brunch for 6 weeks now. Not a buffet, a Sunday brunch menu. Excellent service, excellent variety. The opening pastry basket was wonderful with just-out-of-the-oven pastries including a chocolate croissant with warm chocolate oozing out of it. Our party tried the cowboy eyes benedict, shrimp and grits, fried chicken and waffles, lobster roll, belgian waffle, and other things. Very nice with prices from $12-$21. The entertainment was live music by a local vocalist who accompanied herself on the keyboard. She was excellent too and provided nice jazz style vocals. Highly recommend!

The brunch menu is amazing. So much variety. We tried the traditional eggs Benedict, vegetable omelet and french toast. The bloody mary was wonderful. The dishes were all delicious. The service is excellent and exceptionally friendly. Chef Betina will thoughtfully come by every table to check in with guests. Marcello's has always been a go to for fine dining, it is now our top choice for Sunday brunch.

Solid quality of Italian food, the wine list could be better though. The hostess was very nice, the service a bit slow. I would recommend it for dinner though not sure how it is for lunchtime. The side area selling souvenirs is a nice addition.
