The food was fantastic! It’s s great place to go if you want a louder party atmosphere. Unfortunately I was trying to have a book club meeting and couldn’t hear what some folks at the far end of the table were saying.

My experience at Marcella's was on a Sunday evening; my husband and I had a fabulous dinner. Cameron Mitchel was dining there as well, so I knew we were in a hot spot!

Although loud, it was a fun place to hang out for dinner. The food was delicious and portion sizes huge. We took home half our dinners and dessert!

We were celebrating just getting married the week before. It was crowded and the reservations were running behind. The food was fantastic- my husband went from being grumpy and impatient to very satisfied with his food and Manhattan. We will be back for sure!

Chicken parm was fantastic. Most others at our table got varying types of pizza and they enjoyed them. I wish the pizzas had a bit more sauce on them but maybe that's not necessarily the "Italian way." Either way, very good experience.

We like Marcella's, but it would serve them well to select friendly, engaging receptionists. Our reservation was for 5:15, so the restaurant wasn't very busy yet. I walked up to the reception area and the receptionist/greeter just looked at me. Literally. No words. No smiles. Just looked at me!! I paused for a few seconds, thinking she was going to engage with me....nope! I was the one who had to say hello. She replied hello....that's it...nothing else. I then had to say "how are you?" She replied "fine." That's it..nothing else!!! I then had to say, "I have a reservation, etc." What the hell!!!! Hire someone with a personality!!!! She's the blonde one...longish, straight hair...slender. She needs a desk job with no people interaction.

Great place for a late NYE dinner - they pass out hats, noisemakers and champagne at midnight! One of our favorite local places for date night.
