“Right on the Water, Great Service and Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2012

Outstanding food and service. Pasta served table side with artistry. A place to see and be seen, by appearance of the clientele. Great attention to detail, and right on the water in the Puerto Madero. Substance and style - and we were warned that each entree was enough for 2 people. Very true.

“One of the best Italian's you will ever have”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2012

Buenos Aires has a great mix of Italian restaurants but Marcelo's is our favorate. It is pricey, especially for Argentina, but the food is simply fantastic.

“wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2011

Ok this place exudes style, elegance and the food speaks for itself. We sent a friend there and he too raved about this place. They bake their own bread... the eggplant parmesan was to die for and the ravioli with meatballs was heaven. They greet you with champagne as you wait for your table, now that's service!
