Marcella's is my favorite happy hour! It ends early (4-6) but is worth it if you can make it! Most cocktails are half off as well as the apps, salads, and pizzas. I have never eaten anything here that I did not love. Check out the Sunday dinner special!

Nice bar and active open-aired establishment so they have a high energy vibe going. Food was ok but not inspired or memorable. Close to the convention center. Go for the bar, wine and energy level (if that is what you are in the mood for) but don't expect too much from the food.

I always go here for my birthday. We always get small plates and share. Their flatbreads are wonderful. Very intimate and romantic. Only small qualm... Why did they take the mushrooms out of the arancini?!?!?

Ps never go to the Polaris location. It is nothing in comparison.

The first night we came here, we were not insanely impressed. My Linguine & Clams was good, a little light on the clams, but otherwise pretty tasty. My friend's dish and our appetizer were slightly underwhelming and we didn't think we would come back. However, after realizing the limited options in the area, we returned. I got the same dish again and my friend enjoyed his much more. I think they definitely have their better dishes and in the end I didn't mind going back and probably will go again during my visit.
