This place is always good. Maybe a little overprice for italian. I'm one of those old fashioned guys who don't think Mexican or Italian food should be expensive because the ingredients are cheap. So although the prices here are a notch above most old fashioned italian places, if you are looking for a more modern Italian restaurant, as opposed to... More

2 weeks ago. Amazing gluten free selection that looks and tastes like the original. Gnocchi and ravioli are new. Gnocchi was delicious. After commenting to my waiter how much I enjoyed my food, Michael the executive chef came out and even offered us the first ever tasting of their soon to be released ( that was my vote ) GF... More

Their "small plates" are not that small! Everything was delicious, but we ordered too much and were pretty full afterwards. You can easily share plates, and if you are still hungry you can always order more. Make a reservation early as they fill up quickly!

Visited on a Thursday night at 8pm with a reservation for a party of ten and were seated immediately. Inside ambiance is quite noisy, so be prepared to lean into the conversation or wear discreet foam earplugs. Ordered a variety of dishes. The appetizer of fried calamari was just okay and we have learned over time that America's Heartland maybe... More

We made an Open Table reservation and needed to be in and out in an hour to get to a show on a Wednesday evening. The servers timing was good, the pecorino cheese appetizer with Apple slices and bread was delicious and we wished there would have been more of it. We had the antipasto salad and veal dinners, all... More

The table next to us was so loud and rude that he ruined several people's dinner. No one said anything to them but it will make me think twice before going back. The melted pecorino cheese with honey and apples was a delicious starter. Fresh and well prepared! The white sangria was belly ok and they don't have any amber... More

We went to this establishment on a cold night. The waitress was very helpful and did not rush us at all. The assistant manager was also very attentive and ensured we were well taken care of. The meatball is great. The rest of the food was good to. Pretty traditional Italian.

We greatly enjoyed our recent visit to Marcella's. Being from out of state, we were so pleased to hit such a great spot for dinner. We love to sample the anti pasta and were very pleased with the cheese and meat board. We also enjoyed the prosciutto and melon board along with the delicious olives. The show stopper was the...

I made reservations one week prior and was seated at one of the worst tables because it was right next to the kitchen and the staff kept hitting my chair as they walked by every minute. The fact that they even put me at that table was absurd. There were many tables around me that were open although they refused... More
