Marcello and Giovanni

are looking forward to welcoming you in their enchanting location

Marcello is situated on the beach overlooking the charming Portonovo Bay, a gem of the Conero Riviera. The restaurant’s location is made even more beautiful by the nearby small brackish lake, which is rich in fauna and vegetation and is an integral part of the nature reserve at the foot of Mount Conero. In this picturesque spot, between the green mountain and the blue sea, Marcello, the owner of the restaurant, and his son Giovanni can’t wait for you to try their best fresh fish dishes.

Portonovo is a bay of incomparable beauty and a renowned tourist destination a few kilometers from Ancona. The only indented stretch of the Adriatic coast, Portonovo is surrounded by a still intact natural environment, where the Mediterranean scrub of the mountain reaches the crystal-clear water of the sea and the beach shines with the white pebbles of the Conero stone smoothed by the waves.

Many historical and artistic testimonies can be seen along the shore, such as the Romanesque church of St Mary, which dates back to the 11th century, the watchtower built in the 1700s as a defence against the pirates, and Fortino Napoleonico, a Napoleonic fort.
