“Fantastic chicken, goat cheese and apricot pizza!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

My first time at Marcella's. Atmosphere was average. No issues. Prices were reasonable. Service was good. But the chicken/goat cheese/apricot pizza is what gives Marcella's this "very good" rating. The wife had spaghetti and meatballs which were tasty but heavy and noticeably greasy and made her feel bad for a few hours after.

“Super food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014

I would highly recommend this place if you're looking for a great evening with lip smacking Italian food and great service but are not too worried about the damage to your wallet. They have an interesting selection of dishes, their portions are generous and the service is great.

“Gluten-Free Menu!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

Very nice atmosphere, good sized portions but best of all for me was the Gluten-Free menu. I actually had options, many options! It was nice going into a restaurant and asking for gluten free options and they actually bring you a menu to read not just a print off of an allergy paper from the corporate office. Very pleased!

“Good food. Friendly staff.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2014

Stopped for dinner, family with adult children. On a Monday evening, the restaurant was steady but not overly busy. The staff were all very friendly and efficient. Menu items are moderately priced and portion sizes are ample. I had the clams and linguine: The pasta was done perfectly to my taste and the overall flavor was very good but there was more "grit" than I had expected. My wife had the Penne Arrabiata : like a previous reviewer, she said it was spicy but not really to her liking. The other two had pizzas and were very pleased with them. Overall the food and atmosphere were good, but with so many other options in the area I will probably try someplace else next time.
