Tried Trattoria Marcella for the first time last week. It was wonderful dining experience. The menu is relatively small, but very broad so there are many choices. Our party of 5 started with the obligatory toasted ravioli and fried calamari. I am from St. Louis...More

Trattoria Marcella is a restaurant I don’t think of often enough. When friends suggested this venue for a recent Saturday night, we readily agreed. TM is a popular place; a reservation is necessary for dinner on the weekend. The bar does an excellent job with...More
