With a two person table, that's where we got stuck. The food was very good, but mostly pasta. The seafood was sparse in my dish and the same for the sausage in my fiancee's. Our server, Camron, was fantastic.

Please let us know next time you are unsatisfied and we will certainly move you if any other is available. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention and will speak with Camron about where you were sitting and how we can possibly move that table to another area of the restaurant.

On my trip back home to Louisiana, I had to go to Marcello’s because they have the best spaghetti bolognese, and I can’t find anything as good where I currently live! Zach was our server and he was incredibly knowledgeable of the menu and had a great personality. Very attentive and funny. They were even able to accommodate picky eaters in my party. We were seated in the New Sicily room exactly as I had requested and it was very nice night! They really made me feel special on my birthday.

She helped us with a wine from the very large selection...and suggested splitting the beet salad, which was perfect! I had the shrimp pepato...definitely would return for this and my beau had the chef pasta special...he loved the dinner! We both had the spicy mussels and OMG, excellent! You need bread to sop up the sauce. Kaylee made the experience wonderful...and the restaurant is romantic! When I left my credit card, she ran after me and I was so thankful for this! A lovely restaurant, the right ambiance, a pleasing menu and of course, WINE!
