Marcellino Ristorante is an unusually good Italian restaurant. We had a party of three for a recent business dinner, and found the food and atmosphere to be terrific. We started with traditional appetizers such the caprese salad and another appetizer which I don't recall but which had fresh buffalo mozzarella and prosciutto. The buffalo mozzarella was remarkably smooth and flavorful... More

We attended this restaurant with a large group for dinner as it came recommended from The W Hotel concierge. It seems to have been operating for some time and likely has a regular customer base. The meals were good, although pricey based on portions, and the service was very attentive. The atmosphere is very nice and location is very central... More

Outstanding Italian restaurant in Old Town. Food was great, as was the service. Atmosphere was very nice, as well. Chef came out to answer one of my friends question regarding a special. Will definitely return.

With three persons in our Dinner Party, and three different entrees .... All of the entrees were so disappointing. We dine out two or three times a week and picked this restaurant because of some of the reviews. It was surely a mistake.

I spent a week in Scottsdale and we had dinner in a different restaurant every evening. And this was the best I had ! We were inside and we had a quiet round table where we were able to talk at ease and without having to be at elbow 's distance from your neighbour. Food is topically italian and almost... More

My husband and I were in downtown Scottsdale for an industry Open House on Saturday, October 22nd. Unfortunately the hors d'oeuvres were very light and we were very hungry. After having a simply fabulous Anniversary dinner at Marcellio a year ago, we decided to try and get in for dinner without a reservation. The owner actually remembered us and got... More

We absolutely loved our dinner tonight! The atmosphere was romantic and intimate. The server was charming and very persuasive in us ordering the special. The dinner was delicious including the incredibly fresh pasta and tiramisu. Great place for an elegant dinner, great food and a place to enjoy dinner with your sweetheart.

Booked through Open Table and sat on the patio. The food was ok but not inspiring, very traditional. So so wine list. Our server was not "polished" and we didn't see the chef as mentioned in another review. The prices reflected a more sophisticated dining experience.

A group of us had dinner here last night. Chef Marcellino visited our table several times and put together an absolutely fabulous dinner for us. Everything we ate, and we tried a little of everything between the 5 of us, was mouthwatering, including the Wine. Chef Marcellino made the evening the most enjoyable we've had while in town. If you... More

We Yelped this restaurant while traveling from Utah. What a delightful find. Our server, Charles, was outstanding. He was extremely helpful in explaining all the specials and menu., we opted for the homemade pasta specials. Everything was delicious. My husband gobbled the apple pastry & gelato. This was definitely the best food we ate on our 3,000 mile road trip... More
