Once again, the food was delish and the service excellent. With new management, but luckily with the same chef, (this chef knows food!) we're hoping it continues. It's our go to place in Soho.

We dine regularly at Da Marcella and each time are delighted with the service and food. The fried artichoke special was delicious, as was the calamari, arugala salad, every pasta dish, and even the molten cake. A great Chianti at under $30 for the bottle topped it off. Casual atmosphere with people who always greet you with a smile. We asked to eat in several courses and are never rushed. We'll be back!

This is one of our go-to places. Also can't believe how affordable it is. Food is always good, staff always friendly. Small place so can get a little loud after 8pm, but not a big deal at all. Ambience is casual and cozy.

This was our fifth visit to Da Marcella and on each occasion the food has been superb. Tasty fresh pastas from their next door neighbor, Raffetto's, are the highlights of a small but creative menu with prices that are most inviting for those of us with modest means. You will be pleased and like us, I'm certain you'll return for more!

I have been to Da Marcella about a dozen times and always had a great meal and an ok service but the last few times the service has been so bad that I will never recommend or go back to this restaurant.
It was the worst I've experienced in New york City restaurants.
I expected a much better service from the waitress, she missed several points thru the evening, giving myself and my guests a poor dining experience and when I spoke to her she was defensive and responded in a loud and very unprofessional manner. To top it off when I spoke to one of the owners he just said that he was not working that evening. "he washed his hands". Hopefully they give their staff a manager that knows how to treat customers.

The food is very reminiscent of Nana or Poppa cooking for a Sunday meal. Very rustic, delicious and the flavors linger. Portions not large, but filling. Service can be slow, but servers are very accommodating.

We visit regularly and the food is consistently good. Great staff. Our favorites include the eggplant parmigian appetizer, their pasta dishes, skewered shrimp, salmon, whole fish and creme brûlée
for dessert . They also have an extensive special menu that changes periodically. Lots of choices for meat eaters too.

The waitstaff was very attentive and friendly and wanted to make sure we were happy and satisfied. The food was absolutely amazing. The pastas were homemade and sauce is divine. Wine incredible and everything for a VERY reasonable price. Would come back here every week. Highly recommend the pappardelle with pink sauce and pancetta and the tagatielle bolognese. Also cheesecake delicious. A must go! It's crowded and small but it makes for an authentic cozy atmosphere!

Always reliable: Edible flowers and fried calamari are great openers. Pastas are perfect. The hen is delectable and ample enough for a take home bag. Wine at a good price. Waitstaff efficient and pleasant, but teetering between unobtrusive and neglectful depending on your outlook. The warmhearted greeting is always appreciated.

We went on Thursday night and it was quite busy. It has a warm, noisy neighborhood feel. I liked the monitor above the bar showing old 70s movies...Service was friendly and attentive. We had their meatballs and calamari to start--both of which were good. Meatballs were juicy & flavorful. Calamari was crispy and not too heavy on the breading. I had the grilled whole branzino which was cooked perfectly. My husband had the salmon which he enjoyed very much. Their tiramisu was quite successful- light as air and not too sweet.
I'd like to go back to try their pastas.

My younger daughter had been to DaMarcella twice before and said I'd love the food. She was right.
I was in the City with both my daughters as my older daughter had given us tickets for "Wicked" for Christmas. We decided to have an early dinner and though it was not around the corner on a very, very cold night, we headed down to DaMarcella. It was worth the trip.
The hostess was a bit abrupt with us, but otherwise the service was wonderful and the food was delicious. Between the three of us we shared two appetizers: Burrata con Prosciutto and Calamari Fritti - both fantastic. We each only had a first plate, but it was all more than enough food: Gnocchi con Gamberi, Tagliatelle alla Bolognese and Papardelle alla Fiorentina. So good. All three.
Between those, a bottle of Montepulciano d'Abbruzzo and two fine desserts, the Panna Cotta and a big hunk of Tiramisú, we were more than satisfied. :)
Great prices, too!

We really liked the variety on the menu and enjoyed all the food. Very interesting pasta dishes and sturdy entrees. Reasonable and varied wine list. Service was excellent without being obsequious or pushy. Overall an excellent value for Manhattan. It got a little noisy when one family with 2 children arrived for a birthday dinner but overall noise levels were fine. We could converse at a table of 6. We will definitely go back.

Love this place. Great food, service and price. Very unique menu. Grilled octopus is best I have ever had. Lamb shank is fantastic, the meat falls off the bone. Highly recommend this place.

If you are not sure what to have just ask the staff - they are the best.

I'm not sure where to begin. The food was fine. Nothing outstanding. But not bad either. I suppose the reviews had my expectations too high. It's just another small restaurant trying to earn a name of itself. It just couldn't make the necessary impression to compete in a city as food-obsessed as New York City.
