A dinette in the heart of Old Montreal!
At Marcella, you can enjoy pasta prepared in the traditional Italian fashion, like the classic carbonara served with pecorino cheese, pancetta, and egg yolks. Do you want something a little lighter? Tempt yourself with a fennel salad that comes with a citrus vinaigrette.
As an accompaniment to your meal, pick a cocktail from their highly varied selection. From the White Negroni to the Italo Fizz, these drinks will initiate you into the dolce vita of Italy.

    The service and staff were very good. The food was undercooked. The broccolini was difficult to cut with a knife and tasted like it was simply blanched. The veal chop was cold in the center. My wife's tagliatelle was not even cooked enough to call al dente. The most annoying thing besides the undercooked food was the LOUD, often annoying music. We couldn't even have a normal conversation

    We were the only guests in the restaurant, and yet the pasta came cold. Yes, the pasta. Server was very good. Expensive.

    Ambience and service were great. Unfortunately the food was under-seasoned, or in the case of the cacio e pepe, flavorless (mildly seasoned with whole peppercorn and maybe a little oil). The bolognese was better. The budino was very tasty, though.

    We arrived around 6pm Saturday - nice quiet cozy ambiance, good food, attentive server.. by the time we were leaving the restaurant had gotten much busier and louder. A very nice experience, just keep in mind your ambiance preference when deciding on what time to go :)

    The food was mediocre and the service was terrible, even though everyone was polite. This seems more like an Italian pub than a restaurant. I honestly can’t figure out the high ratings for this place unless the owner paid people to load the rating system. I won’t return again.

    Une ambiance chaleureuse et un décor charmeur. C'était une première pour nous et nous avons été plus que satisfaits. Notre serveuse et le directeur de la place sont professionnels et accueillants. Les suggestions de plats incroyables et que dire de la qualité et des portions. Mon vin maison avec mon petit verre... comme en italie. Un WOW sur toute la ligne. Avons déjà hâte d'y retourner.

    I took a few friends to Marcella last night as it was their first time, they absolutely loved it! Why I keep going back is the service by Micheal is second to none! His cocktails are a creation never had before! His skills are on point an amazing mixologist! Food is great and love the chic ambiance of this restaurant- HIGHLY RECOMMEND and ask for MICHEAL!

    The restaurant looks beautiful and very well done.However, the waiter was super confused about his tasks, we were waiting for almost 30 minutes to be seated at the table we requested and after 30 minutes the table hasn’t been cleaned still and we had to ask again to be seated at our table we booked and they sat us somewhere different. The food was okay , nothing special.

    The manager told us "Next time you should stay home to eat" after we waited 1.5 hours to get our main plates. The hostess, waitress and bartender were lovely but they work for a person who doesn't understand what the restaurant industry really is...
