Stunning, ultra-modern decor and hearty Italian cuisine are the enviable hallmarks of the new Marcello restaurant in Chesterbrook. Marcello was opened four months ago by three brothers who operated two previous restaurants under the name Tre Fratelli - one in Newtown, the other just a few doors away from their new place in the Chesterbrook Village Center. Tre Fratelli in Chesterbrook was closed a couple of years ago and, while the Newtown place still operates under the same name, it has new owners, permitting the brothers to focus all their efforts on Marcello.

In Italy, cooks have produced an endless variety of pasta forms and preparation techniques with delightful results. The larger style pastas provide the foundation for many interesting variations. Combining cooked pasta with other ingredients in a baking dish, heated in an oven, creates dishes often described as pasta al forno. One of the best-known of these dishes is lasagna, which varies in style from region to region. In the United States, lasagna dishes are synonymous with hearty casseroles, layered with wide noodles, a rich cheese filling and tomato sauce.

Think vegetarian cuisine is nothing but tofu stir-fry and rice and beans? Not so. Creating a gourmet vegetarian meal that satisfies and delights the senses need be limited only by your imagination. With ingredients now available in mainstream markets, it's easy to serve cuisine that is low in fat, high in fiber, rich in phytochemicals, and cholesterol-free. Many of these ingredients are new and traditional soy foods that offer the health-conscious cook an opportunity to re-create favorite dishes within a low-fat, cholesterol-free framework.

Time seems to have stood still at the Red Lion Inn; indeed, little has changed over the years at this popular Burlington County restaurant - not the home-cooked pasta dishes, the country-cozy setting or the informal service. The restaurant is just off the Red Lion Circle in Vincentown, on the edge of the Medford area's rapid urbanization; four miles south on Route 206 is its opposite number - the trendy, ultra-contemporary Tabernacle Inn with charming yuppie cuisine. In many ways, the Red Lion is comfortably old-fashioned; its large dining room glistens in mellowed oak paneling, with cluster chandeliers with tinted globe lamps centered between rough-finished ceiling beams, and large picture windows masked with pleated sheers and framed with a valance and jabot swags in pretty country-red print fabric.

For many of us, Indian summer is the best time to visit the Jersey Shore: The temperatures and ocean are still warm and, best of all for restaurant- goers, the summer crowds are long gone. So now is an excellent time to visit Via Veneto, a splendid southern Italian restaurant in Linwood where everything is home-cooked to order; approaching its two-year anniversary in the Central Square shopping center on Route 9 between Atlantic City and Ocean City, the friendly, informal restaurant is open year-round.

The escargot might have crept out of the restaurant's name: Bistro L'Escargot, on Fifth Street near South, became simply Bistro about six months ago. But the new management wisely has kept the delicious critter on its menu. This cordial cafe offers a laid-back change of pace from formal dining, yet handles its chores seriously and honestly. It offers reasonably priced food from individual pizzas to pastas and select entrees. The new menu is similar to its predecessor - a dish or two missing; a new one added.

Riding the boom in Italian restaurants that is sweeping South Jersey, Filomena Cucina Italiana has quickly become a fine place for good, home-cooked southern Italian cuisine. The small, attractively decorated restaurant opened several months ago in the Commerce Plaza I shopping center in Clementon with pleasant dishes at affordable prices. The mirrored dining room is decorated in a warm, vaguely Art Deco style. Ocean-green booths are spacious and comfortable, while tables with chocolate- colored covers are set with white cotton napkins, an oil-fed wick with hurricane shade and a bouquet of baby's breath and both white and beet-red carnations.
