Italian-born Chef Marcellino Verzino met his wife Sima, a singer at the time and the entertainment for the evening, when he was the Chef at a restaurant just outside of Rome. Love kept them together...through restaurants across Europe and North America before a visit to friends in Arizona made them fall in love with the American Southwest and first led them to open Marcellino Ristorante in 2002, at the time, in Phoenix. In 2010 they moved to Scottsdale and the restaurant now sits right next to Barrio Queen near the Old Town. Chef is multitalented, helping to create many of the wood fixtures that make the indoor space intimate and welcoming. He also created an outdoor fountain showcasing a photo he took in Italy and wine bottles from the restaurant. The menu is filled with his spin on very classic Italian flavors but there are surprises as well. Most surprising was just how INCREDIBLE his made-in-house pasta is. Several are made every day, and special pastas pop up regularly. They’re as good or better than any fresh pasta I’ve ever had in Italy and the whole experience is a truly lovely one."

We will do the grilling for Dad this Father's Day!
Along with Chef's boundless hand crafted daily cuisine, Dad may select a 16oz boneless Rib Eye, Veal Chop, Filet Mignon or Baby Lamb Chops, all grilled to perfection and served with potatoes and his seasonal vegetables. As a special treat, with our compliments, we'll serve Dad our award-winning, homemade tiramisu for dessert.

Fresh rosemary is muddled with homegrown lemon to meet vodka for a drink that is both sour & sweet, just like Tax Day can be!
