"Our server Suzie was delightful ! She was overworked and covering for kitchen issues. For a rather small menu Parella was out of too many items. Food took too long for the amount of people in the restaurant. (9:00 on a Sat. night). The manager should have greeted us at some point but never did. Overall the server was the only saving part of the the evening !"

"We went to Parella to try something new on a friend's recommendation. The service was pretty poor (they weren't busy) and the food was mediocre. From all the hype I had seen I was expecting higher level Italian food. I would say the food quality was on par with Olive Garden."

"I get that everyone is tired of stuffing their face from the holidays but we almost had this huge restaurant all to ourselves at prime dining time...which made it more obvious how slow the service was. The servers were nice but we sat there a long time between seeing them.
It's a cute place and the website is very enticing. It was nice to see the wine list was not the run of the mill but the pours seemed rather stingy for the price. The food quality was good on most of our dishes but a foodie wouldn't say "wow" save for one dish someone in our group had. It was their best-selling pasta dish and all at our table know why. Can't remember the name but it had a crumbly sausage in it that was excellent and the pasta itself was perfect. Nicely done."

"My family went to dinner at Parella - although the food was pretty good - the service seemed very slow in regards to getting our food. Our server was very nice and knowledgeable but it seemed like it took the kitchen forever to get the food done. The décor is nice but there was something about the restaurant that seemed somewhat cold - can't put my finger on it. Overall - was an ok experience but probably wouldn't go back."

"We have been to this restaurant several times now and have yet to be disappointed. The ambiance, food and service are all terrific. Our biggest issue with Parella is that it does not seem to have caught on yet and we hope that it does because we would hate to lose it - it is that good! Try it, you will not be sorry that you did!"

"We went for brunch and had the worse service I've experienced in awhile. Ordered lattes and waited forever. Was told the latte machine was broken. This turned out to be a lie. Turns out the restaurant had no milk. Very bad planning. Asked for regular coffee. Waited forever before it was served. Had to ask the waiter to refill the water bottle. Had to ask for coffee refills. Took a long time to order, a long time for the food to come. Long time to get the check. Watched wait staff mill around, ignoring guests. Obviously, they were more interested in each other than us. Someone needs a class in restaurant management.
Menu is unimaginative, especially at brunch. Not flavorful. The food is visually appealing, however. Many other options for brunch at this price point and all around it. Won't come back again though I was a regular at Figlio's."

"This was a prixe fixe menu for NYE but we picked it primarily because we made our open table reservation four days before and the availabilities were slim. We had never heard of the restaurant. Al we knew it was Italian. We were called by the restaurant a day before and told it was a prixe fixe menu and they gave out the limited choices (2 courses and dessert). We took a chance and we were glad we did. All of us chose the Scallops with Basil and Caviar Creme sauce. We all agreed they were fantastic. The scallops were cooked to perfection and the two sauces complimented each other. The second course was also selected by all. It was spaghetti with Dungeness crab. The sauce was just the right amount of spicy, and the crab was also prepared well. For desert I had the olive oil cake which was a great finish to a great meal. Service was great, but there were few patrons when we ate at 645pm. This is in the spot where Figlios used to be in Calhoun Square. We will be back to sample their regular menu."

"We had a wonderful dinner at Parella, beginning with a shared meat and cheese platter and hand crafted cocktails. I love that it's an Italian restaurant but the menu is not limited to pasta. I don't eat wheat and I loved the grilled salmon. My husband said that his spicy sausage pasta course was heavenly. We've eaten at Parella three times now and have always walked away impressed. Only complaint is that when we ordered dessert it took a long time to come to the table."

"Food was of good quality. Offers an authentic and enjoyable Italian dining experience. Overall, most of the menu seemed overpriced to our group."
