Good food and pricesCute Italian place with attentive servers, interesting dishes and affordable prices.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Value Neighborhood GemWe were a big group in this little restaurant but Da Marcela were so accommodating and welcoming to us all and our kids. Meals were great and nice that the plates weren't too big so you could still fit in the lovely desserts. Wine list not too pricey too!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMReturn VisitI liked it so much the first time, I returned a week later to try more of the menu...so far nothing disappoints and the service was top notch both times as well.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat meal. Wonderful pasta.Great meal. Wonderful pasta. Surprised how affordable for NYC.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMI have passed this place severalI have passed this place several times walking around the neighborhood and wondered how it was; I am happy to report it is really excellent--good food, pleasant surroundiung, and very friendly service. I have a disabled child in a wheelchair and often when we go out, we are greeted with indifference if not outright hostility since it is a chore sometimes to get herin and out and seated at a table. The people at D Marcella lifted her over the two steps into the restairant and cleared a path for us to get her to the table. Loved this place.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been here 3 times inI have been here 3 times in the past 2 months. It is my new go to date spot. I've tried several dishes on the menu and they are all spectacular. Words alone cannot do this place justice, you must go there!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMLike being in ItalyWe chose Da Marcella mostly because of its location and the 1,000 points from Open Table. Now we'll be eating there whether or not we get points. From our first bite to our last sip of espresso, the food and service were outstanding. Our party of four ordered multiple dishes and sampled them all including the house specialty, tagliatelle bolognese, which was fabulous. The organic spaghetti puttanesca and linguine lavorante were as good as I've ever tasted, the beef carpaccio tender and fresh, artichoke aglio e olio delicious, and the whole branzino and salmon were cooked to perfection. Desserts were excellent and not overpriced. House wines were very drinkable.
Look for Arber when you're there. He really makes you feel welcome!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMItalian food as it should beWhat a find.
I had Dinner with a friend here and it won't be my last. I felt right at home, an Italian home, as I entered this tiny restaurant on Houston steet. I entered after looking for a good Italian restaurant on the internet. Great reviews, I gave it a shot. I was blown away by the cozy atmosphere, tasty food and warm service. The prices are ridicoulosly moderate.
Go Go Go.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMMust Go!Loved this restaurant! Great pasta at great prices. We also had the short rib and chicken, and both were amazing. For app we had the veal meatballs which were delicious as well. Their wine list is also notable, with selections for any. We will be going back!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWith exception of noise level,With exception of noise level, the experience was very good.

The pasta was great (although some were smaller portions), the appetizers were tasty, wonderful wine and great service. We will be back!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThe find of the year so far!!Found Da Marcella on Open Table: Fantastic Food at REAL PRICES- Seriously wonderful food, served by wonderful owners who genuinely care about their guests. This place is an off the radar restaurant soon to be one of the most on the radar restaurants in New York. Pastas are perfect, and the tiramisu is out of this world. Markup on wines (boutique selections too)), are like everything on the menu....fair and excellent choices!! RUN don't walk to Da Marcella!!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBeen here twice now and bothBeen here twice now and both meals have been exceptional. The food is delicious and the staff is attentive, polite, and accommodating. I've tried over 10 dishes on the menu and each one is great, though the Bucatini has my favorite. I will definitely be going back some time in the next month.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Find!On a recent visit to NYC, found this restaurant by accident while perusing an online source. All reviewers raved about it; and they were spot-on. So glad to be able to make reservations online as the place is quite small and would most likely not have been able to get in without one. It is quite cozy, but loud, so be prepared. The wait staff were remarkably attentive. Extensive wine list. Food outstanding. Prices very fair. Will definitely return on my next visit to the city.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMI had walked past this placeI had walked past this place many times (it is right next to Rafetto's) without taking much notice. A friend recommended so we tried. Was quite nice. Incredbily good value for the price. A very pleasant place to enjoy an Italian dinner without going deeply into debt. I have not found a better place of this type in the Village.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service were excellent!Food and service were excellent! We were visiting New York City from Chicago and this was by far our favorite meal in NYC! Highly recommend.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and attentiveExcellent food and attentive service. Would definitely return.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond visitA Greenwich Village find. Best price for excellent dinner in New York. Small, cozy, excellent service, friendly and quality all in one. It will soon be an impossible to get a reservation restaurant. First visit was just our family and this last visit we added friends and boy, were they impressed. I think I am making a mistake writing this review, I should keep this place for myself.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMDo Go Here!Discovered this place on Open Table. WOW.
We live in SF- given the ambience, casual good feeling and great food and service...

Can't wait to return.2/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is traditional notThe food is traditional not creative. But traditional Italian food prepared and served this well, for such a reasonable price, is reason to return. This was our second visit, and we can therefore say that the excellence is consistent.12/11/2012 12:00:00 AMWe were very pleasantly surprisedWe were very pleasantly surprised that food, service & ambiance could be so good at such a reasonable price.
