a full vegan menu, wow!!! - Edit

Besides their regular menu, Marcello's offers a separate vegan menu with over 10 starters and 13(!) main courses. Everything is very delicious and it tasted very authentique! I will be back!

Delicious homemade vegan pasta - Edit

Marcello is a lovely business owner who cares about his guests. His homemade pasta is incredible, the homemade seitan was so delicate and with a yummy porcini sauce. The pizza wasn't for me as I am all for a thick based but he provided vegan cheese which was thoughtful :) A full vegan menu is something that has got to be supported as that means there is even vegan cake ;-)

Pros: Homemade pasta, Super accomodating, Full Italian Vegan Menu

Entire Vegan Menu! - Edit

Marcello's of Douglas is a great spot if you are wanting authentic Italian food. They have a separate vegan menu, which you have to ask for. I ordered the tortellini, which was the best tortellini I have ever had, and would highly recommend it. My partner ordered the seitan porcini, which was incredible! It had such complex and well-balanced flavours! We also ordered the bruschetta, which was a good way to start the meal, although in the future I may skip it.

After our meal, we met Marcello, as he happened to be who took our payment. He was incredibly nice and had us taste a vegan pudding he had just made, as well as a melon sorbet. He explained his family in Italy are vegan and run a successful vegan restaurant, so he understands how to make Italian food vegan. He clearly does it very well! I will certainly be back to sample more items from the vegan menu.

Pros: entire vegan menu, extensive knowledge of how to make vegan food, authentic Italian

Cons: pricey

A taste of Italy in Cork - Edit

Beautiful place where find a lots of vegan choices.
I tried Spaghetti with Non-Meat Balls, they was so delicious, and Seitan escalopes in Marsala sauce, very nice taste.
It's clear that all dishes are made by an Italian cooking style.
I recommend this restaurant for the very large vegan menu and especially for the family atmosphere.

Pros: Taste of dishes, Large vegan menu, Friendly Atmosphere

delicious vegan Italian food, it's a must! - Edit

Crazy to me there is only one review on here. Who doesn't love Italian food?? Extensive separate vegan menu and it's fantastic. Don't know where they get their vegan cheese from, but it was so good we had to double check they didn't mess up our order. It's worth it to come outside a little from Cork.

Marcello? Mamma Mia! - Edit

No stereo types here then! Seriously though, I simply HAD to submit Marcello's for the lovely Happy Cow crew to feature. Marcello is a fantastic Chef and his restaurant was nominated for Best Casual Dining 2016. With a vegan family he 'gets' what vegans want. And why! GO taste his personal recommendation 'Seitan Escalopes & Porcini' and a delighted "Mamma Mia!" will burst naturally forth 😀

Pros: Delicious FULL Vegan Menu, Vegan cheese, ice creams, cake - the works, Very very friendly staff
