Took the family for some excellent pasta. Young kids loved the noodles and sauce and both adults loved the chicken parmigiana. Some of the best chicken parmigiana in town!

Appreciate the length that Camron Mitchell restaurants have gone to ensure everyone’s safety. (New sir filtration, plastic dividers, social distancing of tables and mask adherence by staff.)

We have been to Marcella's several times for special occasions. I have to say I was disappointed 😞. The food was cold and not very tasty. I am sad that one of our family's favorite locations isn't somewhere I want to go back to soon. I guess every place runs it's course.

Had to ask for a wine glass. They brought out what seemed like a whiskey glass. Wine does not taste good out of these. Wrong soup was brought out. Ordered wedding soup received tomato soup. Service was ok but overall experience disappointing.

Went there since we have never tried it before for our anniversary dinner. We had a great time the cocktails are excellent, the waiter did an outstanding job. The food was really good my wife loves Italian and she loved it all. We took our desert home since we just could not eat another bite and that was excellent as well. We will comeback, thanks for a great dinner!

My wife & I always enjoy the special way that Marcella does their salmon dish. The patio is spaced out that the customer feels. We come early and enjoy the peaceful setting. The wine selections enhanced the delicious meal. Wait staff is attentive. We do not feel comfortable at the present time to do indoor dining. We look for restaurants that have inviting patios. Marcella offers that element.

Really disappointed in the quality of food, presentation, and taste. The chopped salad looked like it came out of a bag from the grocery store. There was not any thought given to it and it certain was not chopped. The pasta with meatball was not good. The meatball was barley cooked and the pasta was half cooked. I expect better from a Cameron Mitchell restaurant. A lot of people were walking around with out masks which made us uncomfortable even though it a policy to wear them while not sitting at a table. Service was slow and our table was an afterthought.

Very loud, rude hosts, and waiter was very rushed and seemed to be in a hurry with other things. The only good thing about this dinner was the food. Very healthy portions and delicious.

We love/have loved Marcell's (Poliaris) since we stumbled on the restaurant 3 years ago. We love most excellent Negroni's in the bar, their delicious Calamari (brought to the table smoking hot). The Chicken Piccata is knock your socks off good...

We split the Lamb Ragu Gnocci and it was delicious, the lamb was so tender it melted in your mouth and the sauce was lovely.

We love Marcella's...

Keep doing what you are doing...

We received excellent service at Marcella's and the food was delicious! I was also extremely impressed with how they accommodated food allergies and the chef ensured that none of the ingredients were in the meal and brought it out himself. We enjoyed our experience and will definitely be returning.
