The pasta dishes at Marcellino's are absolutely amazing. The fresh pasta presentation the servers bring to the table are always innovative and dazzling. I have always enjoyed everything I have ever eaten here. Even the ""non-pasta"" dishes are incredible. I must admit I cannot imagine eating at Marcellino's and not indulging in one of his pasta creations- as an appetizer, side dish, main course. I mean, come on, the man is known for his fresh homemade pastas. To not order pasta at Marcellino's is like ordering steak at The Ocean Club or going to Donovan's and ordering the fish special. I'm sure both dinners would be enjoyable, but you're missing what the restaurant does best. While I have enjoyed everything I have ever eaten here, some of my favorites include: the porcini pasta with lobster chunks in truffle oil; the cheese and pepper pasta with onions and pancetta ham; any stuffed pasta on the specials plate, and lest I forget, the Santa Lucia with lobster in shell on a bed of black squid-ink pasta with clams and calamari in a spicy marinara-bravisimo! The wine list is almost exclusively italian selections and although I am no wine expert in general, and especially uninformed on italian wines, I have always found the staff to be extremely knowledgable and helpful when selecting wine pairings with my food.
Pros: incredible food, great service, romantic, live music
Cons: closed on Sundays
