About Marcello Restaurant

Enjoy Italian classics at their finest in Topsham at Marcello Restaurant, a charming Italian restaurant found on Fore Street. With its stylish decor with white exposed brick walls, and a cosy vibe, Marcello Restaurant is the perfect place for any occasion, and the extensive menu offers something to suit all tastes and dietary requirements. We recommend starting off with some calamari fritti or the selection of antipasto (Italian cured meat, artichokes, sundried tomatoes, rocket, baby mozzarella and olives served with ciabatta) before moving on to some authentic Italian pizza, pasta, meat or seafood. To guarantee a table at this Exeter favourite, booking ahead is recommended.

Great food, good service, brilliant atmosphere. Very easy to book a table on this website. Made the evening a great occasion. And the pannacota was incredible!

Ours was a lunch time experience and the restaurant was very quiet (a rainy day in mid February!), but the food and service were excellent. The evening hustle & bustle create a more Italian feel, but we enjoyed the quite relaxation of our lunch; it was nice to hear ourselves speak without effort although maybe a little background music would have added a little more atmosphere. However, we were there to eat and the food was lovely hence the 5 rating! A&H Feb. 2018

We like this restaurant for its friendly atmosphere, good quality unfussy food, efficient friendly staff and Italian wine. It's a while since our last visit & we wondered whether the meat supplier has changed, our fillet steaks were not quite as top notch as our past experience, still good though. Also, just a tad too much garlic in the kale for our taste.

A great meal at one of the best Italian restaurants I've ever been to. I love this place, it's food is always good and it's cooked fresh too which is even better. Highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Topsham.

The staff were lovely and the food was excellent. We had booked a table for 6 pm and were advised we needed to vacate by 7.30 pm, but luckily the next reservation cancelled. It would have been a shame to rush such a lovely meal.

Food as always delicious and hot but I’m afraid to say the service was poor. We were celebrating a birthday and we had to wait for a waitress to serve us. Every time we wanted to order food or drinks.

It's a great Italian restaurant with great food. Definitely recommend it to anyone who is staying in Topsham. It's my favourite Italian restaurant and I wish it was nearer to where I live
