Marcello’s Italian Ristorante (Deerfield Beach)
***** Marcello’s Italian Ristorante, 718 South Federal Highway, Deerfield Beach, Florida 33441 (954) 427-4909.
Marcello’s is a white-table cloth Italian Restaurant located in Deerfield Beach. You can check menu/pricing at its website www.marcellositalianristorante.com. I am not sure how long Marcello’s has been around, but my best guess would be something like 20-25 years.
Marcello’s food is excellent. Over the years, I must have eaten at Marcello’s 10 times and always enjoyed the food/ambiance/and the service. This joint does a great job with all of the usual stuff like veal parmigiana, veal marsala, shrimp scampi, chicken cacciatore…but my favorite is Joe’s Steak which is a 1 1/2 lb New York Cut Steak broiled and covered in sauteed green peppers-onions-mushrooms. This steak is as good as that found in South Florida’s finest steakhouses.
Marcello’s is open 7 days a week for dinner. As for pricing, a few bucks more than your favorite neighborhood pizzeria joint, but nothing too terrible.
