... I have to give some major props to Marco's Art of Restoration --- a furniture restorer here in Queens, who recently did an outstanding job restoring a dresser that my Grandma Anderson gave me, shortly before her death in 1994. The restoration included new rails, new finish and even new locks! Literally, this piece looks like it should be placed in a museum!!! Thank you, Marco, for the outstanding job, and thank you, Olga, for the wonderful customer service!! I plan on being a repeat customer!!! Micheal Anderson, Astoria, NY
...My 1830 Joseph Simon Fortepiano, which was very badly water damaged, was repolished by Marco De Lellis. The work was simply outstanding: I cannot image it done better by anyone, and recommend his work in the highest terms." – Malcolm Bilson, Ithaca, NY
...Marco, I just wanted to say thank you again for the absolutely magnificent restoration and refinishing of our antique and valuable Hardman piano. The sound is extraordinary and the refinishing is just beautiful! You are a true craftsman and a professional and you have guaranteed the value of this beautiful piece for generations to come. If I can ever be of any help or give a recommendation to a potential customer, please do not hesitate to call. Thank you again." — Dr. Barry Nathanson
...Marco De Lellis displayed a fine craftsmanship in rebuilding my piano and with the pride and passion of a real artist. As an artist, what a joy to play and hear the piano, that I had hoped for, achieved beyond my expectations." —Tom Lellis, Singer, pianist and composer.
...Dear Marco, It is a pleasure for me, to let you know of our good fortune, to have met you. The Steinway upright that we purchased from you, has been a life changing experience for us. It is a vintage instrument that has been meticulously rebuilt. Your craftsmenship is evident in the piano's every detail. — Sincerely, David & Paula, Brooklyn, N.Y.
...Marco did a beautiful restoration of my piano, a 1927 Chickering grand. The craftsmanship is impeccable and the piano seems to have been brought to life again. Marco is a true artist who brings rare knowledge, experience and passion to his work. I can't recommend him highly enough.
—Anita Mercier, "TheJuilliard School".
...Arthur and I are delighted with the restoration of our 1893 Knabe upright piano! Clearly Marco De Lellis is brilliant and a genius at what he does. From the silkiness of the action to the beauty of the case, and the glorious tone this piano now produces, Marco and his shop deserve all credit. What once was a $500 relic from a church basement is now a instrument of great visual and sonic beauty at the center of our home. Thank You, Marco! —Kent Tritle,"Cathedral Church of St John the Divine".
