Make reservations and tell the babysitter you’ll be home late. Cozy, romantic and comfortable, Marcello Ristorante Italiano is entirely and passionately food-centric with a changing menu that maximizes fresh fish and available farm produce and meats for soul-satisfying Italian food prepared by the chef/owner. You can watch chef Marcello Aquino cook as a chalk board is wheeled to your table with nightly offerings most of which pleasantly pair with the Italian reds on the wine list. Background music, low lighting, this is a place to settle back and linger over delicious old and new Italian dishes presented simply but in abundance. Caesar salad prepared table-side is a must. An ideal evening out for grown up who appreciate fine Italian recipes and a chef devoted to his craft as a lifestyle, not a job.
