Personality[edit | edit source]
Marcello is fickle and irresponsible, leaving Antonio in serious debt after gambling his money. At the start of the game, Antonio says that "Marcello has disappeared again", indicating that he has done so before. It is hinted that Marcello has a gambling addiction, which Freddy Fries took advantage of by convincing him to gamble the bistro's earnings.
However, Marcello seems genuinely sorry for what he's done, and helps Emily and Norma out by cleaning tables. When Emily says Marcello doesn't deserve to rest after what he's done, Antonio defends him, saying he's a slacker, but deep down he's a good boy. At the end of the game, Emily says he seems to finally be developing a sense of responsibility.
