We had a very large party and were late due to a late graduation ceremony. The manager was more than helpful and held our table. We did not feel like we were and inconvinience even though we changed reservation, changed numbers and came late. What a great spot with nice views

What do you look for in a restaurant; namely, good food, good service, and reasonable prices. So, head to Marcellas. You will find all three and then some. Our food was delicious and our waiter, Grant, was attentive and very personable. Treat yourself to a wonderful night out. Marcellas can't be beat.

John Mark was an amazing server. He answered every question we had and made great (not pushy) recommendations.

They were out of some things we wanted to try so the food was just ok, but the atmosphere was good and again our server made the night enjoyable.

Will the back and try different things.

I set a reservation for mothers Day and when I got their they said they couldn't find my name, then they found it and said it was for 2 people. I modified my reservation to 3 after I saw it was for 2. On line. Long story short I was put in the bar area, none of us our alcohol drinkers. We weren't asked if we wanted to sit anywhere else. Kinda blew my Mother's Day surprise. I guess that's a restaurant problem with your staff. Food and service were good though.

went here for mothers day brunch. they don't usually do brunch, but are apparently going to start this summer. it was excellent! and during brunch, they still offer the whole rest of their menu for lunch/dinner. it was great food! great ambiance, great view of downtown. and we didn't sit outside because it was too cold, but they patio outside is so charming. we definitely will be back. I'm still dreaming about their tomato basil soup.

The food was fantastic, the service did not meet our expectations her server it appeared had too many tables. I do not feel they had enough staff on to handle the amount of people that had come in for dinner. And that just hurt service

Food was very good, but there was a delay in the food getting to the table. The server and floor manager were apologetic and made every attempt to make up for it. It was greatly appreciated and showed they genuinely care about the experience. I definitely will return.

This was our 3rd time and we will be back for sure. Love the food, service, and prices are a good value. Decent wine list and craft cocktails are fun! Compare to Quality Italian in Cherry Creek, and Carmines in Wash Park. This place blows both of them away.

This was my 3rd dinner at Marcella's within 2 weeks - it is officially my go-to I've been looking for close to home and while I wouldn't call it "cozy" becuase it's a fairly large dining room, it is still very comfortable. The chicken piccata (first time I had an entree), was cooked to perfection. That is one of those things I'm going to crave I'm sure of it. I'm pretty sure I'll become a regular.

The four of us had a most enjoyable evening. Our waiter was very informative about the menu and provided spot on service to our table. The appetizer, “Melted Percorino Cheese” was delicious. The Caesar salad was tasty, and the lasagna, sea bass special and spaghetti and meatball main course dishes were very good.

Things were good but we ordered two bottles of wine and took a long while to get the second bottle. The service was friendly but sometimes took a long time to get waiters attention. We live a couple blocks away and it was our first time in. We were celebrating my dads 72nd birthday. With the overall experience and food wait times; its hard to say if we will be back.

Saturday night at a Denver restaurant -- you have to expect noise. We were happy that the hubbub at Marcella's was very bearable, easy to talk. Nice service, delicious food, good wine choices at fair prices. Really liked this place and hope to return soon.

We were celebrating a promotion and had such a wonderful time! Food and service was amazing! We're lovers of Italian food and it did not disappoint. We're Ohio natives, so having Marcella's in Denver is a huge plus, we missed it!! Great views of the city and out of this world cannoli's - so make room for dessert!

The noise level was a bit much at times & you are somewhat packed in. However, the food & drinks were definitely worth it. Both of our entrees were cooked to perfection with a reasonable wait time. Menu is quite extensive so I was wondering about food quality. I was not disappointed.

Marcella’s was a great spot for a good Italian standards with quality service and a buzzy atmosphere. It was on the noisier side for good conversation, but was lively and had a good energy. The neighborhood features many other bars/restaurants to sample around on. We would return.

My husband and I dined at Marcella’s on Easter Sunday. The entire experience was outstanding. Great server, food was delicious. We ate every bite and asked for bread to sop up the remainder sauce. I had the Mezzaluna ravioli and my husband had the lamb gnocchi. The gnocchi was his second choice because the lasagna had sold out but he was thrilled with his meal. We definitely will eat there again and highly recommend.
