Food portions are plentiful and many offerings for lunch. I had lasagna and salad. It was good...would have liked a bit more flavor. Salad dressing was bland....olive oil with no herbs in it is served with bread. Who does that! Great waitress and service.

A little noisy. Especially since our server talked so quietly. I had to ask my wife what she was saying every time. Otherwise good food and a good expirence.

So we went here to celebrate a late Valentine's day. We have been here before and always thought the food was good and they can easily accommodate my girlfriends gluten allergy. This evening they sat us in a very crowded section of the restaurant and within minutes my girlfriend was getting bumped every time the wait staff went by. It all came to a head when the wait staff was serving the table behind her and the wait staff person hit her in the head. We asked to move and they were very accommodating. Unfortunately, they cram folks into this restaurant so finding a out of the way romantic spot is almost impossible. We settled for another area and albeit crowded, we did not experience any more issues. They even gave us a complimentary dessert for the trouble. The food was very good, I had the ravioli special and my gf had the carbonara, gluten free. The wait staff was courteous and helpful although they weren't around much. Everyone seemed very rushed and I felt more like a number than a customer.

The restaurant was chosen by our special needs son for his birthday and we are were coming in from out of town so we did not know what to expect. Our waitress was very nice and efficient for our party of ten on a busy a Saturday. The quality of food there is minimum at best. Competitors such as Carrabas and maybe even Olive Garden could certainly compete. Not impressed at all!

We had a table for 2, it’s Valentine’s Day and the tables were stacked almost on top of each other! There was literally 18-20” between the tables on each side of us and as people next to us would get up and leave they literally would rub up against our table. Plus in addition with these tables so close it was hard to carry your own conversation due to the people next to you! There was absolutely no privacy to yourself, you could easily hear and / or interact into the conversations going on in both tables next to you. No privacy what so ever on this special day!!!!

Ashton our server exceeded expectations. She was friendly and attentive without being intrusive or feeling like we were rushed. We sat under an air vent which blew air on us all evening - did not like that.

My husband and I went to Marcellas on Valentine's Day and experienced the MOST romantic evening. The food was amazing, the service was beyond our expectations, the atmosphere is very quiet and romantic great if you want to take your significant other out on a date! Not to mention, the BEST Italian food I have EVER had! Definetly give them 5 stars all the way!

We went the night before Valentine's Day (to avoid the crowds). It was quite busy, but we got in right away. Food was very good. Drinks (White Sangria and Gin/Tonic) also very good. Service was excellent up until the dessert--then it lagged, but otherwise the young man was efficient, kept the drinks going, checked on us frequently.
