What you need to know: A true neighborhood joint, Da Marcella serves authentic Italian fare at prices that reflect its longstanding relationship with Greenwich Village and SoHo/Little Italy residents. Known for their $10 bowls of pasta, some of which come from neighbor Raffetto's, Da Marcella specializes in classic hearty preparations of Lamb Shank, Calves Liver, Short Ribs, Cornish Hen, and Branzino. Its grotto look and feel make Da Marcella a charming hidden gem that harkens back to old New York. The restaurant is great for group dining, or those looking for a romantic experience that won't break the bank.
