We enjoyed a great dinner for 2 at Trattoria Marcella. The server has been at TM for 18 years and he was excellent. The menu recently changed and he made some great recommendations. The food was delicious with great presentation. It was all topped off by a reasonable cost bottle of Italian Red Wine. A great way to celebrate a birthday!

We sat in the large dining room on the far left as you enter. Sat next to an 8 top. No noise baffles in this large room Very loud. But food and service was excellent. Will ask for a different table next time. Loved the hummus served with hot fresh bread for the table!

Food was not what we had hoped. Compared to previous visits, seemed like both dishes needed something. Amount of Veal was adequate. Flavor was ok but it was tough. Potato, or whatever was served with it, not very appetizing. Although Risotto flavor was OK, did not care for the tomato sauced it was served in.

Toasted Ravioli is still the best in St Louis. Lobster Risotto was a bit salty and the Kingklip fish special wasn’t bad but the fish texture was a bit mushy for our taste.

Great ambience and great service which still makes it my favorite Italian Restaurant in St Louis.

Wonderful birthday celebration. Vince was our waiter and was exceptional. We enjoyed the calamari appetizer, lasagna, and off the menu house risotto. The tiramisu was delicious. Definitely will return!

Visited Trattoria Marcella on a recent date. Staff was welcoming and friendly, including reception, bar and wait staff. Accommodated a couple of special requests and generally made us feel right at home. Food was excellent and timely served. Will definitely be back.

One of our best dining experiences in STL in a long time, and we have hit a lot of STL’s best. From Beau at the bar to Vinny as our waiter...they made the meal. I highly recommend it!

Fabulous service, Incredible food as always. Walls are painted a very dark gray with low light. A bit too dark. We’d said it was a special occasion when making the reservation (our anniversary) and no one ever mentioned it. We didn’t either. Still our favorite fine dining restaurant— the roasted cauliflower is always excellent, as is the white bean purée and bread from “The Hill!” And the tiramisu!!!

As usual, the food was fantastic! It is a louder restaurant and even with them restricting the number of people inside, it was a bit too loud. Our server was a little too quick to assume our orders and I didn’t feel I could ask any questions about the menu. She seemed rushed. I’ve not had that experience at any other time.

My boyfriend and I decided to have dinner here this past Friday, our first time here. We had the toasted ravioli which is definitely best in STL. Our entrees were both delicious as well. I couldn’t resist but have the tiramisu for dessert & it was PHENOMENAL. By far the best tiramisu that I’ve had. Our waiter (I can’t remember his name unfortunately) was wonderful! We truly enjoyed our experience here.

My favorite restaurant for over 20 years and it never disappoints. I usually get my favorite, lobster risotto; but went with one of the specials, mahi mahi, which was delicious. My husband had their cioppino which was phenomenal. The calamari with flash fried spinach was excellent. And the dirty martinis, wow! You can't go wrong at Trattoria Marcella.
