This wonderful St. Louis landmark is always a great choice for any occasion. My wife and I celebrated her birthday, yesterday (July 5) and as is always the case, we weren’t disappointed. We each had a terrific meal, with a nice Barbera, a perfect salad...More
For two decades, Trattoria Marcella has been one of our "go to" restaurants. We've never had a bad meal there. The owners, brothers Jamie and Steve, are there every day. The chef brother (Steve?) routinely travels to Northern Italy to bring back authentic recipes.
