Nice menu with varied choices and, without question the BEST toasted ravioli in St. Louis!
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!
Outstanding as always!!!!
Always grand. This place is a neighborhood gem...nice for casual dining or a special occasion. The food is always superb as are the cocktails!!!
As usual, every food item was delicious and the service was outstanding. This is one of the best Italian restaurants in St. Louis.
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.
Osso Bucco and Shrimp Scampi for us
My new favorite hummus in STL
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!
Trattoria Marcella is such a reliably wonderful dining experience! It is always our first "go to" when we are wanting to show visitors the best St. Louis has to offer in Italian food.
Outstanding food from Polenta fries to chicken spendini, rigatoni w/shrimp to tiamisu never ever disappointed.
Shout out to Joey, servers along with service staff always attentive & outstanding on your every needs.
A must dine for anyone who hasn't been there experience fabulous which is rare.
Price affordable for all, can't beat the food for the price especially.
Food and Service 5 ⭐️
Great night. Great service. Leisurely meal. Great date night and most importantly amazing food!
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.
Trattoria Marcella has the best lasagna in St. Louis. My three friends had never been and it was a fantastic night. The food, the service everything was what I hoped it would be!
Good food not overly priced. Atmosphere is good. Rissoto is delucious
Food is consistently good and our waitress was really really good!
Everything was fantastic - great cocktails, food and service. Would highly recommend
Had a lovely dinner with a friend. The food (delightful Brussels sprout salad and veggie appetizers were wonderful. Service was impeccable. This restaurant always is a delight.
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!!!
The food here is amazing. The ambience is ok, but the food is so good, I'll let it slide. ;-)
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.
We were seated right on time with a wonderful server. He explained the dishes to us and took good care of us with just the right amount of service. Our food was exceptional. Everything we tried from appetizer to salad to entre was delicious. We will return soon!
Table was ready when we arrived. Service was prompt an the food was excellent.
So good! The osso buco and lasagna were delicious. We will be back!
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.
Rigatoni and Lobster risotto great as usual.
Fabulous dinner at a one of the best Italian restaurants in a city that is known for its Italian restaurants!
Nice dinner for four friends who have been starved of the opportunities to dine in a restaurant. Attentive care from our server. Good food.
Everything thing was perfect. The food and service were outstanding.
One of the best meals we've had in a long time! The service was awesome! It was a birthday dinner and the tiramisu that was given to celebrate was amazing! Can't wait to go back!
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.
Everything was fantastic! We enjoy a great evening out with our adults kids.
Nice birthday dinner!
Come about once a month for dinner and it never disappoints!
