Love, love this restaurant. It has been here for years. A quiet little place in a small strip mall, but its atmosphere is very nice and the management are a pleasure to meet, as well as the servers. The menu is wonderful with their Italian...More

Uninspired. That's how I'd describe my dish. Black rice risotto with a few pieces of salmon. No "wow factor" let alone taste. Rather bland. Cesar salad was ok. We shared the ricotta cheese cake with berry sauce for dessert. It was a bit heavy for...More

We loved this local authentic Italian restaurant. The salad and pasta were excellent. Fresh and light. Good service. Atmosphere was relaxing. One of the best Italian restaurants I have been to anywhere. I will definitely be back next trip to Thousand Oaks.

I have been dining at Marcellos for over 20 years now, and I love the food and ambience of this family-owned restaurant. The staff are always friendly and knowledgeable, and the dishes are traditional Italian. We are returning again for one of the wine tasting...More

Quite a find here. Don't let the outside neighborhood shops between Mexican grocery store and a pet store fool you. Once inside Marcello Ristorante, you are transported to a charming little Italian village. White table cloths, fresh flowers, candle light and Italian speaking waiters. We...More
