A word from Da Marcella
We source all our meats from Pino's Prime Meat, located right across the street from Da Marcella since 1903, including the organic free-range chicken in our menu. All our pastas are made with the best durum wheat using the classic bronze dies that leave the surface of the pasta rough and porous to perfectly absorb our slow cooking sauces. At the same time, most of our pastas are organic and very...soon all of them will be. We believe that great food should be affordably priced.

We have a passion for good food and excellent service utilizing the best ingredients. Most importantly we have a love for food, service and quality.

Our philosophy is simple: cook with real food to create unbelievable results. Authentic food, authentic service. You deserve it.

Diner Reviews
  • "The food was very good; the staff very pleasant and accommodating; when our table wasn't ready, we were given complimentary glasses of wine. But the service was slow and haphazard - the table was cleared and we were given dessert menus before our main course arrived, and the noise was horrific."

  • "I tried the dim sum for the weekday lunch. the food was so nice and staff is really kind. And the place is good to access the Lincoln center."

  • "We had a delicious early dinner after a long day of shopping in SoHo. We had a craving for Italian food and found Da Marcella on Open Table. The food was simple but wonderful: appetizer was burrata and prosciutto and then pasta Bolognese for the main course. The service was warm and personable. The wine was delicious. And the bill was a fraction of the price of most places in the Village. Nothing fancy, but everything was perfect for what we wanted. A good option when you want a simple but tasty Italian dinner."

  • "This restaurant is a find if you don't mind noisy. It does get kind of earsplitting load at times. However, the food is really special. We had 3 appetizers, 3 mains and 3 desserts for 4 people. Every dish was outstanding and the prices were really low for the quality and outstanding taste of the food. It got kind of hard for 4 people to talk at times, but we sure enjoyed the food. Better to go with just two because it doesn't make for a great social evening when you have trouble hearing people. Would definitely return because it was a great value with delicious food."

  • "Have gone here many times for dinner. 1st class food and service at a great price! The staff is wonderful! The tall elagant hostess is amazing! One day I will ask her name! Best grilled octopus and short ribs around! Also the pasta with the wild boar ragu is out of this world! This is my first pick whenever wife and I go out for dinner and when we have out of town guest, we always take them there for dinner! No one has ever been disappointed!"

  • "Wonderful food. Patricia was attentive, even though she was basically the only server in the restaurant and the place was full. The noise was excessive at times...could barely hear conversation at our own table. Will definitely return"

  • "Da Marcella is one of my favorite Greenwich Village restaurants--smartly prepared, simple italian food, reasonable in price with a decent wine list. What could be better? If the website allowed me, I would shade the overall experience to 4.5 stars."

  • "I always like my visits to Da Marcella and this time was no exception. Came in a group of 4 for a round of 'gentle' food and drinks. It was a muggy evening and the temperature was a touch hot so we opted for white wine and the manager recommended bottle was a good one. We ordered the pasta with the pink sauce and pancetta (delicious), the lasagne (pretty good), the beet salad (a good balancing element) and the calamari (well made but not out of the ordinary). The desert was tiramisu and the pana cotta. Everything was above average and some things were delicious. The service was a little frenetic but pleasant. Another good evening at one of my go-to places."

  • "Food was outstanding. As a comparison, the restaurant next door was empty, and this one was packed with people. It tells the story. The food, service and ambience is so good and such good value (two mains, two desserts, two glasses alcohol) all for just over $50! They truly live up to their vision of serving great authentic food at a reasonable price. I would recommend to everyone going to NYC to head on down to the village to this tiny gem."

  • "I went to Da Marcella with 2 other colleagues for a birthday/end of year celebration. From food, to service everything was great! They are very personable, always came around to pick up empty plates, bring new items, fill water, etc. No complaints at all! The price is very reasonable and the quality of the food is superb! Will definitely be back! Thanks for a great meal! "

  • "Our second time at Da Marcella: once again, excellent food. Ossobuco appetizer very tender, great flavor; my cod was cooked just right, as was my wife's seafood pasta. Reasonable prices for the wine and food -- great value overall. Friendly hosts. Since moving to Greenwich Village it's become one of our local favorites."

  • "Wasn't expecting much from this little basement level eatery. Simple interior with some high barstool tables and a few 'couple' tables on the perimeter. Best choices on the menu are the fresh pastas. My friend had the penne alla vodka and it was tasty. Simple food and wine. Good times."
