As always, our experience was phenomenal, and the food was exceptional. We usually order off the menu and are never disappointed. If you are looking for a date night, I highly recommend!


First time here and loved it. Carlos was our server and he was great. He gave good recommendations and very attentive checking in on us. The only odd thing was we got there around 5:30. There was one other table that was seated and they sat us right next to them when there were so many other tables available so we had to listen to a loud talker for the first twenty minutes of our dinner. Maybe space people put a little. The two tables that were also two seaters remained empty during our entire dinner so why not put some space between people when you can? Other than that very minor thing we lived our experience here and will return.


We wanted to have dinner with live music so this was the place on a Saturday night. It did not seem packed with empty tables most of the time, yet we were put on the bar. The big guy was kind of grumpy or that's his style...don't know. Entertainment was good on mix tunes but would prefer more Sinatra hits. Complements to the chef, the Italian meal was authentic! I had the special “2 prawns & fresh pasta”. For two people, the bill was $ must be the special $70/ dish pricing bcuz we only had 4 drinks.


Food is good and regular menu prices are fair,but the special pasta dishes are presented without telling you what the cost is. Pappardelle pasta with lamb ragu $59.00 was a total shock. If you should go there, ask about "special items" pricing first. Good place to go if you dont care about costs...


We had a wonderful dinner. It was my first time there and I got to meet the Chef! Noise level was rough. It was hard to hear my wife with our conversations. But overall it was wonderful.


Our server kind of mumbles and has an accent and rushed through the menu items so it's hard to understand them. There are always a lot. He means well but definitely needs to be more polished to make the experience. He seemed a little tired/lazy about it. We have loved coming here but the main entrees were not much to write home about this time. I had the chicken with rosemary and si dried tomatoes and he had the pasta rague. There was hardly any meat in it and the sauce was nothing special. I think a few things could really make this a much better experience. Just missing on service and food for us which are two major components for a dinning experience. Bartenders were great! Fast and made a great martini.


We were seated at a patio table facing Stetson Drive. The view of people walking past doing their shopping or walking to and from restaurants was nice and the noise level was low due to vines and bushes along the perimeter of the dining area. We had a Negroni and a Tito's martini both of which were well-made. We split a insalata tri colore. The lemon dressing was good and not overpowering. The ingredients were fresh. An entree of zuppa di pesce featured a nice assortment of fresh seafood. The pollo saporito featured several baked baby red potatoes, chicken breast, one of which was slightly overcooked, and a side of zucchini and carrots. Both entrees were superb.


Our first time to experience this very well known Italian restaurant With both indoor and outdoor seating options available we chose indoor we wanted it to be a little more intimate to understand the field of the restaurant Hostess was absolutely accommodating and made sure to it that we were seated at a table that we were most comfortable with In addition to the menu, they have many specials. They explain the specials at your table. The service are especially well-versed can answer all of your questions at the end of the evening. All of our bowls were completely empty thoroughly enjoyed the meal. Being from the north east it almost felt like this restaurant was in Brooklyn or Philadelphia. It's very authentic do not miss an opportunity to experience this in Arizona. Bravo ‼️


Every time we go to Marcellino, we try to order one of their fantastic paste dishes - but each time the daily special is something we just cannot skip. We like pasta - but we love game. And Marcellino always has something of the latter (as one of their daily specials). This time it was venison - and we had to choose that. (Again, instead of the pasta which we always promise ourselves to get.) Of course, we never regret to choose the special. (We always tell ourselves "there is next time for the pasta".) Our server Christian was very attentive. And the Italian wine is always super.


Food was excellent as always. Our server, Marcos was very attentive and helpful. The live music was a very nice touch to the dinner but it was too loud. One of our favorites when we are in town. Highly recommended.


Absolutely amazing. We have been dining here for 17 years!! Everything from the pasta to the dessert is perfect. Being a born and raised New York Italian, It is wonderful to be able to enjoy real authentic Italian cuisine here. It makes me miss Mulberry street and Arthur avenue a little less


We had a good evening. Service was good. The bread basket, we thought, said a variety of bread but it was only one kind and average. Salads and desserts good. The only thing we had that I would not recommend was the gnocchi. Other pastas were good.

I was charged $23 for a basic gin martini ?. The food didn’t match the price point

Marcelino Ristorante is a long-time favorite of mine. When I want an exceptional dining experience I always select this restaurant. Furthermore, the speciality pasta dishes are probably the best I've had while traveling the world.


Really enjoyed our dinner here. The atmosphere was romantic lively and cozy. Food was top notch and the music was a lovely touch will definitely be back one of the best meals I've had in Scottsdale.
