Great dinner, fast friendly service. We had a reservation and therefore didn’t experience a wait. Have been there before and will go back.
I really enjoyed sharing a great meal with a friend. The chicken was the best Parmesan I’ve had an age is very tender and flavorful. I’ve learned always to order extra sauce. They always are so friendly and excited to serve. It just seemed a little dark in the restaurant.
Great waiter! Food was great!
It was great! Tasty food and excellent service.
We had a great pre race carb loading meal. I am
Gluten and dairy free and they were very accommodating. Food was delicious!
Always ask for something that is no longer on the menu..so accommodating!
You have to order the parmesan onion!
Never disappointed...LOVE this place!
Reasonable prices for a satisfying dining experience. There are a lot of exciting things to try on the menu. I plan on visiting again!
Like the reservation system. Reception was crisp and efficient. Food excellent choices.
We had a very comfortable lunch with Alexis as our server. She was very attentive and personable. The food was delicious and we were not rushed.
Only comment is regarding the drinks Very disappointed in my cosmo, taste was terrible. Changed to Moscow mule, typically served in a special cup, . served in regular glass.
Just not what I expected.
Food and services was excellent.
Always good. Food was good as well as the service. Like the atmosphere.
The service and food was excellent. However, it was quite noisy and hard to carry on a conversation. It was also too cold, with the A/C and ceiling fans.
Quick service for our reservation. Our wait person was awesome and food was great. It was a bit too noisy I felt but I know everyone was just enjoying their time out.
Best place to eat if you are gluten free!!! Jim, our waiter is second to none!!!
Glad to be able to get an early reservation, the restaurant filled quickly after we got there, our second time there and pleased again
Love all of the gluten free choices! This is a must go to restaurant for us when we are in town.
Family get together
First time at Marcella’s and it did not disappoint! We sat out on the patio. Food was delicious. Atmosphere was perfect!
For a Cameron Mitchell restaurant, expected a little bit more of an enjoyable experience. It didn't live up to all the rave reviews we read.
Although the happy hour menu was hard to follow electronically, our waiter was so helpful with understanding and suggestions! We had a great time and it was affordable! We’ll be back soon!
Chloe was excellent! Very customer service focused and very attentive!
Two of us had the capellini and agree that next time we’d want a whole order, not half! It was delicious. Our third diner enjoyed her eggplant parmigiana thoroughly, and we shred two amazing desserts. We’ll definitely return!
Oh, and our server was very attentive, adding to our enjoyment.
My wife and I had an amazing dinner the other night celebrating moving into a new house. We had our usual favorite entrees but tried 2 new appetizers - sweet Italian sausage and melted pecorino cheese. Everything was fabulous. Chef Budzinski really outdid himself!
Maybe because we are now used to social distancing the tables seemed too close to each other. A young boy sitting at the next table kept bumping his chair against mine. We had to move our table. The food was good. One member of our group had salad and she liked it. Another had lasagna and it was served cold. However, they did replace it. I had chicken parmigiana and it was tasty but it was very thin.
Overall our impression, the whole operation seemed disorganized.
Marcellas was amazing, as usual! The staff was awesome, the food is outstanding...what's not to love?
Easy to reserve a table for 8, service was wonderful, food was really good.
Great service, friendly and fast.
Food was excellent as always!
We had a fantastic experience!!! Our server Jim couldn't have been kinder or more attentive. Started with pecorino appetizer, salad then make your own pasta. We left feeling quite satisfied, great meal, great service, we will be back. Thanks to the Chef and Jim for the great experience!
Very good food. Looked and tasted great. Service was spot on.
The food is always excellent. The service can be variably good, however Leo was particularly excellent. There is always a moderate amount of noise in the restaurant which bounces off the un-padded ceiling which amplifies the noise in the restaurant along with the indiscernible background music. It’s difficult at times to hold an intimate conversation. Go at non peak times to hold a conversation. Lastly, the cannoli were removed from the menu since we were last there 6 weeks ago. The manager told us that that he was “understaffed” and that making cannoli was time intensive was his excuse. We skipped dessert a a result. Our waiter said we were the 4th diners to tell him that already that day and it was only 6p.
Great restaurant! The food is consistently delicious!
Best Italian food we’ve had in a long time. Hostess was amazing and so was the wait staff. Highly recommend
Great food awesome service from Allie. Will be back.
Ehhh not much more to say
Just does not live up to the standards of the Mitchell restaurants.
Everything is good.
But the meatball is amazing!
We were seated in a poor location, asked to be moved and was moved to a worse location. Waited 10 minutes for any server, no one came so we got up and left and went to another restaurant.
This is not the norm for a Cameron Mitchell restaurant.
Our waiter was great and attentive. The food never disappoints. Always my stop for lasagna
Jim took excellent care of us, as always. Food was prepared perfectly. We will be back!
We had wonderful dinner for seven at Marcella's. The server was first-rate. The food was excellent. And a great value. The place was busy, but not overly so. The activity added to the atmosphere.
