Great food & atmosphere only negative was parking was a challenge but the calamari was great as were the entrees of which my wife a lobster risotto & I had veal Marsala
Excellent cuisine with a great bottle of amorone. Veal picatti was not on menu but they made it anyway. Creme brulee was great. Service exceptional .
The food was tasty but the serving size was ridiculously large.
First time to Trattoria Marcella was great! Service was quick and kind and the food was exactly what we wanted, delicious. Cocktails were refreshing, especially the Blueberry infused vodka. Looking forward to another trip!
We celebrated a college graduation dinner hr
Always fresh and delicious. Our go to for dinner meetings.
Lovely birthday evening. Extensive menu, upscale atmosphere. Noise level just right even for a full restaurant. Good friends recommended it, we were not disappointed
I would still recommend Trattoria Marcella for those who have never been although they have fallen from grace over the past 4 years. Just not the same as it once was.
Never disappointed here! Don’t miss the perfect toasted ravioli. The chicken risotto is always perfectly prepared.
Went with girlfriend’s. We liked the choice of larger pours of wine, since we all enjoy different wine varieties. The food was excellent and generously portioned. The risotto was especially good.
We love it there. The food is fantastic. The staff are so friendly and take great care of you. It's my favorite Italian place.
Trattoria Marcella is the kind of restaurant you wish was around the corner from your home. The food, ambiance, service are singularly excellent. It is warm an welcoming as an old friend while making you feel special. One of our favorite evenings.
The service there is absolutely perfect. Mike waited on us this time... he is as good as it gets. Perfect!
Trattoria Marcella is our “go to” restaurant for special occasions and last minute dinners every time. Great service from Mike the waiter and Sam the server was only outshined by the terrific food and drinks. We had a big family bday dinner with guests ranging from 7 yrs old to 50s and we were treated to an incredible selection of delicious food for all. Komoreks know how to do dinner right!!
ALWAYS a great meal! Classic Italian restaurant with great service in a very comfortable setting. It's the kind of place you can go in jeans and a nice top or a dress for a special occasion. Always get the special lobster risotto!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Trattoria Marcella. The atmosphere, service and food were excellent.
We had a disappointing experience in that we had made reservations, but were placed in a tiny booth right next to the kitchen. There was no leg room and we were so totally distracted by the waiters and staff rushing back and forth, not to mention the "Coming down" through out whole dinner.
While the food was great, the service was a combination of too fast and too slow. Salads were served right away and, as soon as one of us finished theirs, the waiters swooped in and started collecting plates. Then the entrée came in right away. It wasn't a very relaxed serving. After having everything served too fast, we waited 20 minutes for the bill. So, overall, an odd combination of great food served too quickly and the bill too slowly. I would suggest that, like great restaurants, you not start collecting plates until everyone is finished with their portions. It is distracting to have someone pick up plates as we are all still eating.
Brrought two ladies from the east coast to dinner here. They raved and raved about the experience and the food to everyone they talked to the following day!
Marchella continues to be one of our favorite St. Louis restaurants. Wonderful food! Excellent service.
Food was great and didnt break the bank! We had a wonderful server. Definitely going back!
Excellent food as always!
This is one of our regular "Special Places".
It is a totally reliable great place. If you want to impress your mother in law or a client rep....this is your place. Not to mention the food is incredible and the Komoreks are great people.
Thanks to Trattoria Marcella.
Excellent food! Excellent service! We will be back....many times!
This is one of our favorite restaurants, but our experience this past Saturday was not up to par. We arrived before 7 pm for our 7 pm reservation and were not seated for 25 minutes. We could see an empty table that we assumed was ours, but no one was preparing it with plates, glasses ... until we asked if that was our table. We watched as a bus boy trinmed the paper table cloth and then leave. Finally, the hostess stepped in to help set the table. After we were seated, it took quite awhile for our server to even acknowledge us. She took drink orders and appetizer and told us that bread and hummus were on the way. We watched as every other table around us got their bread- even those seated long after us. So frustrated. we were finally able to get our servers attention to ask for long ago promised bread ... it was like our table of 6 was invisible. Our server was clearly responsible for too many tables and our service suffered greatly. When we told her we were ready to order , she said she would be right back... again we had to wait far too long for her return. People seated after us were being served their entrees and we still hadn’t ordered! Of course the food was great, so that helped to ease our anger a bit. But this was the worse service we have ever experienced in all our years of eating here... from beginning to end!
Love this place! Excellent food at reasonable prices! Service is fantastic and they are really customer oriented.
Always a great experience. I love how the food here doesn’t have to be overly heavy to be great. Some of our favorites are the cauliflower appetizer, Caesar and Brussel sprouts salad, lobster rissoto, and rigatoni with shrimp and cauliflower. I had the veal chop special which was delicious. The bread and hummus are alway delicious as well. Great wine list and great service.
I have already recommended you to my friends st work!! We absolutely loved our waitress and our food! Cozy place and we will be back FOR SURE!!!
The food was great. We tried 3 risottos, each was delicious. They serve huge portions so we had lunch for several days. Our server was a true professional; she may have been the best server I have ever encountered. We will definitely be back because I have my eye on the lasagna I saw on another table!
Excellent evening with family. Food and service was outstanding.
Excellent spot for dinner with a carefully curated wine list and menu, excellent, non-intrusive service and a sound system that gently wallpapers the room with soft music.
We started with great warm bread rolls (we asked for butter since they serve it with hummus) and their house cocktail. It was a great start. Toasted ravioli are superior. Entrees all tasty with great sides and garnish. We shared a dome-shaped chocolate mousse dessert with a hazelnut light crust. A real treat. Ambiance warm as well as the service. Great evening!
Excellent food on a busy Saturday evening without any delays.
Every time I go there the food and service are excellent. I recently took some guests from Chicago there and they raved about the food and the service and can’t wait to return the next time they are here. This is a go restaurant for me.
Trattoria Marcella was a favorite when we lived in St. Louis and it did not disappoint five years later. Our favorite dish was the artichoke stuffed with couscous. This dish is the main reason we came back - it's so good. The off-menu entree, veal chop with risotto, was equally delicious. The flavor was wonderful and it was the perfect doneness. We ended with dessert and coffee, a chocolate mousse covered with chocolate ganache and a lemon "pudding" coated with a raspberry sauce. The service was friendly and efficient without being intrusive. Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner there as we always have
The food and service are extraordinary and not outrageously priced. You’ll definitely need a reservation as this is a hoppin’ place! If I could change one thing it would be to bring down the noise level. We felt like we were screaming to hear one another at our table for four. If you’re looking for a quiet romantic dinner, this is probably not the right choice. That said, we all completely enjoyed our meals.
The food, as always, was excellent. The service was awful, it was s l o w. Three hours for dinner and closing down the restaurant wasn’t on our minds when we made the reservation. The wait staff was friendly and apologetic, but the long delays while tables around us were quickly served were inexplicable.
Had 7:15 reservation. At 7:45 I asked if our table was ready and was told they made a mistake and gave our table of 6 to another group of 6 with 7:30 reservations as our name was similar. Hostess was not apologetic.
About 10 minutes later, our table was ready.
Service was good not great. Hostess brought us a free appetizer for the mistake. Very nice.
Dinner was served. Two peoples entries were cold. Food quality was good.
Revived check and it was surprisingly less than I had anticipated.
This restaurant is an icon in St. Louis. I guess busy Saturday nights are not the best time to eat there.
Would certainly go back.
Had a reservation for 6:45 was after 7:00 before we were seated. Had somewhere to be by 8:30. Half of our group Left before food even came out. Paid for a meal that was never eaten. Never going back!
