Our first return to inside dining at Marcello’s Assagi e Vino since the pandemic began. Tables inside and outside are properly spaced, everyone including customers were masked and shielded appropriately and everything was sanitized.

The food and service as always is spectacular. Fried cauliflower and zucchini flowers as appetizers with eggplant and lasagna as our entree. Molto bene! We had tartufo for dessert to finish off a fabulous meal. Please bring back the Napoleon my wife so enjoys!

Thank you to Marcello, Lloyd and all the staff for an enjoyable evening out in a safe and delicious environment. We look forward to hosting our daughter’s bridal shower at Marcello’s in September.

My husband and I asked our waiter if we could share the caprese salad appetizer. Our waiter cheerfully accommodated us. We then ordered the Nile perch for one of us and the veal rollatine for the other. We didn't specify which dish was for which of us, and our waiter asked if we were intending to share. When we said yes, he proposed that the chef would split the order in the kitchen and time the two dishes so that we could eat the fish first and then the meat, effectively giving us separate courses. The food was excellent, the preparation was outstanding, and the service was SUPERB. We were thrilled with our meal.

I have been enjoying the food here for years. My favorites include the seafood. Last time I had delicious Branzino fish, shrimp and scallop over a veggie medley. You cannot go wrong with gnocchi or the short ribs!

We had been to Marcello's once before and decided to go again because we had tickets to a performance at the nearby Ramapo College. The food was OUTSTANDING again!

Service was lovely and friendly. No problems. But the food?? WOW. My husband and I usually don't order pasta at Italian restaurants, because, well, I make it at home. BUT, we both had the butternut squash soup, which was a daily special, and then two different pasta dishes. OMG. Mouthwatering. We took home what we couldn't finish, and I am still enjoying the food!

We were seated immediately and the waiter took our drink orders .
The drinks came quickly .
Menus and specials were given and terrific choices .
Food came out and the presentation was lovely.
The owner was walking around and he chatted with us.
My business associates were in from Minnesota, Maine and Pa and I am from Queens.
He told me he knew Lydia from my town and I always see her in the Supermarket .
Every morsel was delicious and enjoyed by all.
The desserts were wonderful .
We were very pleased with the service and food !

You can ALWAYS expect an excellent meal at Marcello’s ... the veal chop that I ordered was the best veal dish I ever ate. Tender beyond words and the mushroom sauce was outstanding! In my opinion, Marcello’s is a gem a hop, skip and a jump from Bergen county.

Service was impeccable.
Lloyd was kind, polite, and very accommodating.
Service was excellent.
Food was not bad, but not great either.
A bit pricey~
We will return, as we never judge a restaurant on a one time visit.
The service alone, warrants a return visit~

Excellent service. Food was solid, not stellar, but certainly worth the trip. A little pricy at $200 for three people (no wine, one drink per person, two appetizers and coffee).

We haven't been to Marchello's in a number of years since they changed their menu and decor. We really enjoyed their menu which basically allowed you to have either a large or small plate of virtually any item on the menu allowing people to share 3 different"small" dishes instead of getting 2"large" plates. As always the food was terrific. We had the eggplant appetizer, hand made raviolini and sauteed shrimp. All were great. The sauce and combination used in the shrimp dish was just terrific. The portion sizes, both small and large, were perfect. All in all, a very enjoyable place for a high quality dinner. We will be back sooner versus later.

Marcello’s is another one of those sleeper restaurants that is still doing it better than almost everyone else but doesn’t get the acclaim it deserves because it’s been around for so long, it’s off the beaten path, and the trendoid crowds have long since moved on to the next new IT place.
I hesitate recommending Marcello’s solely out of selfishness so as to keep it to myself.
