I always suggest Marcella's first, especially when we are trying to decide where to go for happy hour :).5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were there during the busyWe were there during the busy Mother's Day lunch hours -Service was excellent and the food was delicious.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI love Marcella'sMarcella's is my favorite restauant in Columbus - the food is always exceptional. We try to sit in the front of the restaurant or visit during the slower times because the restaurant fills up fast and can be somewhat noisy. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGlad they opened early onGlad they opened early on Mother's Day and we were able to get in for lunch. Everyone loved their meal. The food here is always consistently good. My wife loves the sweet sausage and comes for that dish alone. Melted pecorino cheese appetizer was a big hit as well.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Experiance..Food was good and it being Mother day, it was crowed. We use the car parking service provided by the Marcella and was glad we did because of the limited parking in the North location. Graned it was $6 for parking but well worth it.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful time! TheWe had a wonderful time! The meal was delicious and the atmosphere was lovely!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodI live out of town but each time I visit the Columbus area I try to make sure to stop by Marcella's. The people are nice, the food is spectacular, the dining room is nicely updated, and the Short North area is so quaint. We arrived slightly a few minutes before they opened and went next door to the pet store. Lovely! Marcellas opened promptly at 4:00 and the dining area quickly started to fill up. It was evident that it's a popular neighborhood place to go. Wait staff is friendly and professional.You won't be sorry if you make Marcellas part of your visit to the Columbus area. We always leave making plans to return soon.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAMAZING!!!The service was great...the food was amazing...half price apps in the bar5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to dine with friendsWe were in town with a group of friends that get together a few times of year for a cycling event (TOSRV). We usually look for a good pasta place w/ a nice wine list. Marcella's hit it out of the park. The appetizers were excellent and the service was exceptional. Meal portions were generous, the selection was diverse and the food was flavorful. The noise level was a little higher than we'd like but we were able to converse without too much yelling. The only real complaint to speak of is the amount of space afforded to us at the bar and at our table. Things seemed a little crowded as we found ourselves bumping into more people than we'd like. I backed my chair into the diners behind us several times.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat italian in hip areatook my daughter pre concert. we were running late and the restaurant was very accommodating to our tardiness. We were seated right away; quick service. Good pasta -- I had the spicy arabiata, and they added spinach -- hit the spot. My daughter had plain penne, and it came w/a side of fruit ( nice touch ! ) a bit too buttery but fit our needs.
Valet parking was easy and allowed us to keep our car parked for the concert, which was a short walk to Nationwide Arena. When next in town, I would definately head back to Marcella's!!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMfood was excellent and thefood was excellent and the service was also great. My granddaughter had spagehtii with a meetball as big as her head!!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMNever fails to impressThe wife and I love Marcella's, the food, service and environment are always fantastic!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome!This place always amazes me!

Great salads!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceDining at Marcella's was a great experience! We scored a table by the open wall facing the street, and loved the scenes. The server was knowledgeable of the food and drinks, and very friendly. I had the Margherita pizza and my husband ordered the Chicken Marsala along with the Mozzarella Risotto appetizer. The pizza was great and very fresh tasting with the fresh mozzarella along with the tomotoes and basil. His was a more hearty meal that was accompanied with mashed potatoes. Good restaurant, good location, and good fun!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently GoodIf I want to make sure to go home full, I will always choose a Cameron Mitchell Concept!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMawesomeI drove 8 hours from NJ to try this place and it was the best italian food I've had in years.

A dining companion declared the meatball better than his grandmother's,and it was incredible.We ate through the appetizer and small plate menu:carpaccio,bruschetta,parmesan onion,calabrese potatoes-all DELICIOUS,the caponata respectable.Tortellini,pasta carbonara:two of the best and most authentic pasta dishes I have ever tasted.The pizzas-crispy potato,margherita,and pepperoni were excellent,though I like a thinner crust.We had profiteroles with superb gelato (pistachio was unbelievable),a sublime tiramisu,the BEST pannacotta ever (served in a mason jar with perfect apricot jam,it was an ethereal creamy treat),and a chocolate almond cake(just okay).Can't wait to return!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe music was extremely loudThe music was extremely loud as an attempt to cover the noise of the crowd. As always, the food was amazing and the service was exceptional.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMTook my family from out ofTook my family from out of town here.

The food is fantastic. There was just a little problem with the service. Our waitress was not as attentive ad I would like and the bartender was flat out unfriendly. He acted as though we were bothering him when we sat at the bar after dinner. Other than that it was a great experience. It was my birthday and they gave me free tiramisu, so I was pretty happy with that.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went to Marcella's as someWe went to Marcella's as some of our group eat gluten free. Great gluten free menu!
Food was delicious and service great!
Great spot with lots of energy!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMarcella's was recommendedMarcella's was recommended to me by my nephew who owns his own restaurant.
We loved it.
They have a veal meatball that was the best we ever tasted.
This place is a real gem.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFavorite spotAlways a good crowd, which is a positive. It's easy to get bar service while waiting for a table, which may take awhile on weekend nights. Staff does a great job- the hostess came & found us when we didn't answer our pager. Food is very good, we've been there may times.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWas impressed by the margaritaWas impressed by the margarita pizza especially. Great options for sharing meals and appetizers with others.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you love sangria...We dined on a Friday evening and it was very busy. Even though we were a few minutes late for our reservations, we didn't have to wait long once we arrived and that was appreciated. This spot always has a very busy, energetic vibe that I love. We mentioned we were running late to our server up front and she asked us what time we needed to be out of there. We told her and she was WONDERFUL. She timed everything perfectly so we didn't feel rushed and had our check to us with 2 minutes to spare!
I highly recommend the sangria (get the liter carafe, it's worth it) - LOTS of fresh black berries in the bottom of the carafe! And no matter what you do, treat yourself to the meatball!! Chicken parmesan was just ok.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our third consecutiveThis was our third consecutive year coming in for my mom and brother's birthday celebration. As usual we were blown away! Can't get enough of the food and beverages at Marcella's!3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding Dining ExperienceMy wife and I view Marcella's as one of the best dining experiences in Columbus and chose Marcella's for our son's 23rd birthday along with his OSU friends and family. Even though we had a large group, the service was absolutely outstanding, the food terrific, and the atmosphere perfect for a special event. Everything went seamlessly and everyone had a great time. Now we plan on hosting our daughter's high school graduation party at Marcella's in June.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, a great meal, greatAs always, a great meal, great service and a fun place!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways good!We always have a good time at Marcella's. The waitstaff was extremely helpful in selecting a wine and entree. The only disappointment was that they were not able to serve our favorite small plate, the pecorino cheese paired with apples and honey. Apparently they've been out of the dish for months - it's unfortunae because that's usually our go-to starter.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my favoritesI LOVE this place! Everything I've tried is amazing. Love the house sangira and gluten free bread!8/24/2012 12:00:00 AM
