My meal was all that I could ask for in a plate of spaghetti and meatballs. Meatballs so big I could only eat one (I think there were two on the plate - under all that delicious Marinara) and a literal bowl of pasta sufficient for multiple servings. We could have easily shared either dish.
In the past I've enjoyed their cheese ravioli in shrimp and lobster sauce - rich and decadent. Last year when my family was here, we dined at Marcello's, and everyone loved their meal. Good stuff - reasonably priced. Our dinner tonight was $36 with non-alcoholic drinks and a tip. For a nice dinner, that's a good price in my opinion.
I'm tired and pleasantly full (thankfully I only ate half the dish) and ready for bed. The evening was so pleasant, we completely forgot about the bonfire! We swung by on the way home and at least saw it, despite missing the actual activities...not sure what you do at a bonfire...but we were so stuffed and ready to fall into the post-pasta-induced slumbers, that we both said "okay - saw it - let's go home"...and we did.
Marcello's is a place we will go again and again...when we need a nice night out and want to stay on the Port Isabel side of the bridge. It's definitely mangia bene!
