Despite.their posted hours closing at 9 pm on both trip advisor and google, we were turned away this evening at 8:25pm. Sunriver seems to be trying to extend the holiday period around thanksgiving a few days prior to the holiday, but the staff at Marcellos's...More

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. It’s quaint and cozy. I had the mushroom ravioli - great! We had plenty left to take home. Our waitress was very friendly & attentive.

Once again I had Lasagna and my wife Manicotti. Both were, as usual, very tasty to us; in fact we could not eat all of it, and asked for a take home box. Yes, we are owners in Sunriver and always recommend to friends and...More

The meal was very good, but what made the experience wonderful, was the waitress! A fantastic personality, great informative conversation and very nice suggestion of a wine to complement our dinner.

Marcello's offers a fabulous Italian and Mediterranean menu, but the Wednesday night happy hour is my favorite. Well drinks, draft beer, and wine are $5 starting at 5:00 PM until 6:00, and there are also tasty appetizers at very reasonable prices: steamer clams, prawns, spicy...More

Had a big group here and all seemed pleased. Lots of selections to fit every taste. Huge wine list, many European ones but had hoped they featured more locals.More

That is a good point about the wine. We do tend to feature a lot of Italian wine, being an Italian restaurant, and because there are not a lot of Italian options in Central Oregon. There are very few truly local options, since the growing...More

We sat down at 6:00pm and no one came to greet us or take our drink order until 6:15pm. There were only two other tables in our area. Finally one of us went and asked for service. The wait person was belligerent and explained that...More

I'm sorry you did not feel that you were greeted quickly enough. Your server was taking care of the table that was seated just before you at the time you arrived. We have a very large restaurant, and it is a common misconception that the...More
