If you want amazing service, food, and drinks this is the establishment for it. Every single thing was amazing and felt unique. Also the staff is incredible between the service and making you feel like a regular and maintaining safety. I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant.

We are lucky to have this gem in our neighborhood. We have not been here in awhile, shame on us, that will change. From start to finish, it was perfect. Seated right away, we were never rushed at any point. The calamari was the best we have had, and we have dined around the world. The raviolis were fantastic. Salads were so tasteful, just a joy to eat. For main course I had the lobster and shrimp risotto and it was perfect. My wife had pasta and shrimp and she loved it. After two bottles of wine we had the chocolate Creme brûlée and the taramisu . An espresso martini and a Jamisons and coffee and we were done. I cannot say enough on how well our waitress treated us. Do not miss going to this great spot.

We were able to get a reservation due to a cancellation on Valentine’s Day. As to be expected, the place was packed
Our sever remembered us from dining 2 weeks prior which was great
Partner has severe Celiac and Joe directed him to hat he could eat
When he realized something could not be gluten-free, Joe came out and told us what could be eaten

The experience was very good. Best toasted ravioli I've had in a while! Ordered a steak sandwich and received it very rare. Service was good, but after the first time the waitress came to check (while we were eating the amazing ravioli) we didn't see her for a while to have the sandwich cooked the rest of the way. We boxed it and heated it in the oven later and it was delicious.

Great night out! We were there for an early Valentine's dinner. Seated immediately upon our arrival, wait staff was friendly and responsive. Food was terrific and served promptly. Low light atmosphere is great with a nice comfortable decor. Had a great evening and will definitely recommend to our friends for any occasion. We look forward to coming back!

It’s Trattoria Marcella...of course, the food is going to be excellent. It was. Group of 4. All our food was delicious. Fried ravioli (as an appetizer) was great as always. I had Chicken Soto for the first time. Wife had Stray and Hay. Friends had Lasagna and Chicken Spiedini. All good. Like always. Never had a meal less than great there. Here’s my hang up...we weren’t halfway through our meal when we were being asked if we wanted boxes for our meals. We said we might need them, but we were still eating. Server brings out 4 boxes. Another minute or two passes and a server asks if he could take our plates. We were still eating! I know this review should be closer to 4*, but it really felt like they were trying to rush us out, and that was a huge turnoff.

Excellent food and the service rivals that of a cruise ship. Each course arrived in a timely manner, and was very good. We will dine there again.

Service was very good it was the weekend of Valentine’s Day so they busy! We went to Trattoria Marcella several years ago seemed more like fine dinning! Not so much this time! They put us in back had carpet remnants on the floor!

Food was good and service excellent! I think it may take awhile after virus for all these great restaurants to get their A game back! Hope so!

We were seated in the back dining area which is not as formal as the front area (it could use a little TLC). Our server was very charming & attentive. The food was pretty good & my filet was actually medium rare as ordered - always a bonus.

Joseph was a little offputting as a waiter, we have never experienced this before but tonight was different. The restaurant was loud and a bit crowded. Food still still lacking compared to pre-Covid.
