My friend and I after a couple hours of work had decided to go eat on the Drive (Commercial Drive) and ended up in front of Marcello. We sat down to a simple menu that consisted mostly of pastas and pizza. We decided on the house salad to start, then the Spaghetti with Clams and the Fresca Margarita Pizza. The salad and its dressing was great! Real italian style salad. The spaghetti was pretty decent as well. The hilight of the meal was the Margarita Pizza that came with the bocconcini cheese! The bocconcini cheese layered and melted on top of the mozzarella makes this pizza way more cheesey without it being too heavy. Their pizza is a nice thin crust straight out of their weird looking oven in the shape of a large face with its mouth wide open. The prices were very reasonable for all items.
Enjoyed the meal with some wine.
I found the pizza similar to Lombardo's Pizza also on the Drive and later found out that there is a link between the two. Lombardo's was originally opened by a couple and after they had split up the husband opened Marcello. I was also told that the calamari is excellent there. Next time i will be ordering the calamari and the Fresca Margarita Pizza again!
