About Marcello's Restaurant
With its close proximity to The King’s Theatre, Marcello's is the perfect location for a pre-theatre or a post-theatre meal, offering great views and fine Italian cuisine as well as a sleek bar. Every morning, Marcello's owner visits the Glasgow fruit and fish markets to handpick ingredients, and with Italian head chefs you know you’re in for an authentic experience. With both pre and post theatre options as well as an a la carte menu, Marcello’s is perfect for any occasion. In true Italian style start with some antipasti before moving on to a rustic pasta, meat or seafood dish – we recommend the branzino al forno (pan-fried sea bass with a mediterranean tartar sauce and sauté potatoes). Located on Elmbank Street in the City Centre, with its close proximity to The King's Theatre as well as The Hydro and SECC, Marcello’s can get busy. Book ahead to avoid disappointment!

Very good choice from pre-theatre meal. Also, a la carte menu as well. Food was excellent and service very quick. Great location opposite the King's Theatre
Booked this restaurant because it was near to the theatre. I am so glad that I did. The food was delicious, the service excellent and the ambiance of the place was just right. I will most certainly go there again.
Staff, service and food were second to none. It is the perfect location if you are a theatre lover too. Will definately be back 😃
Always go to Marcellos for my pre-theatre meal and everytime I've had a great service and lovely meal & would recommend it to anyone, booking through Quandoo was quick & easy.
Lovely restaurant. Ideal for easy access to kings theatre as you can actually see the doors open if dining pre theatre. Food was lovely. If a little too hot and suspect lasagne blasted in microwave. Service very good until we ordered some cocktails and pudding. For some reSon these took much longer than starters and mains and resulted in having to throw back cocktails in order to make curtain up. Great online booking system. Would use again Andwill definitely book this venue for pre theatre dining .
You can't get closer to the King's Theatre in Glasgow if you are having a meal before going to a show. It is literally across the street. The staff were really friendly and made us feel very welcome and the food was delicious. I'll definitely return.
Lovely restaurant , good service . Was busy as pre theatre so had to wait for waiter a couple of times but they were so efficient and helpful when they did come we didn't mind . Food gorgeous , great quality good value , First visit , will definitely be back .
We were late for our reservation walking lost in Glasgow so called and they gave grt instructions to get there and still have a table available...food was amazing and staff very attentive and helpful and my boyfriends guide dog very popular :) xx
Booked a table at Marcello's before the matinee at the Kings Theatre. Perfect as it is just across the road. The food was axcellent and lovely staff couldn't be nicer. Will definitely eat here again, with or without a show to attend.
Very nice restaurant. Excellent food and very good service. I would recommend Marcellos for anyone looking for a quality Italian meal in Glasgow. It's also very convenient indeed if you're heading to or from the Kings Theatre. First class all round.
Great venue for a pre theatre. I ordered bruschetta followed by sea bass . The bruschetta was bursting with flavour from the fresh cherry tomatoes and the sea bass was delicious and cooked to perfection. The service was prompt,attentive and polite. Would recommend and will definitely visit again.
Excellent location across from the Kings Theatre. Staff were very friendly and the main courses were delicious. Didn't give full marks as I suspect the desserts were microwaved but they didn't taste too bad. Background music was mostly 80's which suited me fine. Would go back again.
Great food, service could have been slightly better- would have liked / expected wine to be poured for us !! + £2.45 for a can of coke is a massive profit. But enjoyable lunch for our Group and would go back - I think
Maybe it was an "off" day. It took a long time for the order to arrive and then all were served except 1 of our group...we then had to leave since the show was starting. The waiter apologised for the delay but no money was deducted from the bill. We have only read positive comments about the restaurant so assume this was a bad day in the kitchen.
The food was delicious and the service was excellent. The restaurant is very attractive. We will certainly return the next time we are going to the theatre. This is a restaurant worth visiting.
Service was friendly and efficient for the most part; food came quickly, but we did have to ask a couple of times for water, and the coffee took a while to arrive at the end of the meal.
It was very busy - good for business, but our table was in the main path for the servers. Lasagne was tasty but had less meat in the sauce than usual. So cramming in more tables and economising with the food...not the best scenario for a recommendation.
Extensive pre-theatre menu and not the usual rush from the staff to hurry up. Food is delicious. Have been a few times when going to see a show Kings. Definitely recommend.
Amazing food and amazing staff! Went before Rocky Horror in our costumes and everybody made us feel welcome and even got us to pose for pics! Will def be back!
Nice food reasonably priced. Pleasant staff and good service. Very convenient location for the Kings theatre which is directly across the road. The was no time limit put on the table which was another plus
Amazing restaurant with amazing staff. The food was delicious and the service was quick and with a smile. Will definitely be back here again. Thanks to all the staff
Nice food but the waiter was a bit slow taking our drinks order considering how few people were in the restaurant. However, good value for money and a decent option for a business lunch.
Staff very friendly , excellent food , however too much time between starters and main course meant we were rushing to finish in time for the Theatre , never had chance to try desserts.
Great location for King's Theatre and good choice on menu either pre-theatre or a la carte. Pleasant efficient service. Food well presented , tasty and very good value.
Had a lovely meal there with my daughter followed by a great night at the kings theatre, thankyou all so much hope to see you all again soon.xx
Nice enough - food was "ok" - nothing exciting - portions weren't huge and was very empty when we first arrived. The music in the background was awful. Fine for a quick bite before the theatre. Not as good as Massimos.
First time at Marcello's. Going to the theatre, so needed a quick turnaround. Excellent service, delicious food, and very pleasant surroundings. Would definitely recommend this restaurant!
My sister in law & i had a lovely pre-theatre meal & the service was great as always,been many times before & will definitely be back.
As always, a lovely night spent in Marcello's. Food is beautiful and fresh and staff are always lovely and friendly. A favourite place for my family.
Very nice restaurant, food good and service excellent will certainly return Good choice on menu and good choice on drinks menu Waiters very attentive and pleasant
Lovely meal, excellent service. Meals were served quickly and serving staff were very attentive. Great value for money and plenty of choice on the menu.
Great food. Good choice. Good value. Attentive staff. Catered well for the 3 kids even though they were busy. Will be back and would recommend.
Fabulous service pre-theatre for a large party. Food was great and we were served quickly and efficiently before our show. We will definitely return here.
We had a lovely 2-course pre-theatre meal for £14.95. The staff were friendly, the food was delicious and very good value with plenty of choices.
The service was very quick and food was amazing! Staff were very attentive and the food was of high quality. Perfect for dinner before theatre!
This was the first time we have aquanted this restuarant and where delighted the food and service was excellent will certainly go back thankyou marcellos
This is the 3rd time and they have never let us down. Choice of Menu and service are always excellent. Why go any were else.
Excellent food and service in a relaxed atmosphere. Would highly recommend this restaurant to others. Especially convenient for pre theatre when visiting the Kings Theatre.
Great food, friendly service. Even at a very busy pre-theatre period the service was prompt. Good choice of menu and very reasonably priced. Strong recommendation
Nice vibe, easy going staff serving typical Italian fare. Just right for a lazy sunny evening in Glasgow. Really enjoyed the linguine and the coffe was very refreshing
The whole experience was very average - the staff were okay, but not great, the food wasn't great quality and there wasn't much of it. I felt it was expensive for what it was - the whole trip was underwhelming, I shall not be returning.
Staff lacklustre, didn't crack a smile between the 2 of them. Atmosphere poor on account of their evident boredom. Food fine but childrens menu poor or inappropriate. Parmesan sauce anyone on a small list of choices? Would not go back. Used to enjoy it. S
Lovely meal, attentive staff, value for money. What more could you want? Hubby had minestrone soup and pizza. I had bruschetta & spaghetti bolognes. No complaints.
Staff were lovely, helpful and polite. Food was served promptly and tasty. Would go back. Very reasonably priced too, would book table To save disappointment tho.
Lovely restaurant and great service. Portions were a bit large and we felt a little rushed. We would return again, it was a great experience.
Attentive with excellent service. Food quickly delivered & of good quality. Ideal location prior to show at Kings. Busy , so advise booking in advance.
Excellent food. Only small problem was that one fruit juice orfered was "off". A repacement drink was given with an aplogy. Good and friendly service
Unfortunately no reservation could be found by Marcello's staff. They however were very helpful got a table and service was excellent food good Enjoyable evening
TLovely restaurant, lovely food , excellent choice on the menu for lunch. On arrival a very efficient greeting and service was excellent from the waitress
The Food and Service was overall mediocre. The lasagne dish was particularly disappointing being burnt around the edges and looking more like a soup with very little pasta in it. However the pizza one of our party ordered was very nice. We were rushed out at end of meal...it was a bit rude! Personally I would not return to this restaurant.
