Diner Reviews
  • "Marcellas's has always delivered a awesome date night for my husband and I. We love the food, service and ambiance."
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "Joanna was great! We enjoyed a few apps, wines, entrees and plenty of dessert. She was very knowledgeable, friendly, and patient with us. We had a fantastic evening before heading out to a show. Thanks for making our evening so fun!"
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Marcella's is one of our favorite places in the city. The only thing we don't like about it is that it is very loud and hard to hear. "
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "Food and service were excellent! Celebrated a co-worker and it was fun, food was delicious, setting was great and the service was excellent. We will definitely plan another get together at Marcella's!"
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "My husband and I love our dinner. We had reservations and were seated within 10 mins. Our server was friendly and very knowledgeable. Food arrived quickly but it wasn't rushed. Would definitely go again."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Everything was great, my only problem is that my chicken was tough. Also, they play bumpin' club music and it doesn't really fit the ambiance or atmosphere."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "I took my mom here for her birthday and we had a great time - excellent food, lovely service, and reasonably priced for the quality that you are getting. I highly recommend it - and use the valet if you don't want to deal with the headache that is parking in the short north!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "We went here for my birthday dinner after many recommendations. The food was amazing. We ordered a pizza as an appetizer however it came out after we got our food. Other than that we raved about how great the food was."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "First time at Marcella's. We called bc we were going to be 10 minutes later than our reservation. Hostess was extremely courteous. We were still still seated promptly. Food, service and atmosphere were the best!!!! Will def return on our next visit to Columbus."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Marcella's is our favorite restaurant of all time. We love everything about it--the atmosphere, the drinks, and especially the outstanding menu. We always order 3 cheeses and the carpaccio to start. The carpaccio is phenomenal--so delicate but full of flavor on a bed of arugula and two ricotta cakes. My favorite pasta dish is the ravioli. My fiance loves getting the gnocchi or lasagna."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "The calamari and the arancini was excellent! There were 6 of us in town for a conference. Each one of us enjoyed our meal. I had the chicken piccata. The chicken was moist and the piccata lemon sauce was very good. I would definitely order again."

  • "I brought my Dad in for a surprise birthday dinner and left with an experience, memories, and a belly full extraordinary cuisine."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "Marcella's had my heart when I first walked thru the doors! The food is that perfect piece of Italian culture. The service both times I've been there was fantastic! Marcella's brought back memories of my times spent in Italy! Will be back again, and wish Marcella's had a restsurant in New Jersey ❤️ Forza Marcella's"

  • "I do not like lamb at all and this was so delicious. The gnocchi was like potato pillows, so light and fluffy and their sauce with lamb was savory and delicious."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "We had my friends birthday here and it was a great time! But, for as busy as it was on a Tuesday, the service could have been a little more haste. We waited quite a while for our checks. Everything was SPECTACULAR though!!! Definitely going here again!"
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "Dinner, 4pm, Sunday 3/30/14. It smelled (not good) when we walked in. The table was full of "stuff", leaving little room. Dinners were moderately priced, but all you got was an entree - for the price you should've gotten a salad or soup at least. Portions were small considering this is pasta - not that expensive - even IF it's freshly made Desert menu was poor - we had almond cake, and it was pretty dry. I can't critique the Tiramisu - I think it's generally overrated as a great desert anyway. The desert menu lacked variety - maybe a cheesecake or something chocolate would've been nice. And parking - forget it. The Valet service should start when the restaurant opens. I wouldn't go back - there are many other options there."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "We have been to Marcella's twice. Both times we had our girls with is (11 & 14yrs). The service and food were great! I could see my husband and I coming back on our own and having an intimate dinner. I want to come back when the outdoor area is open. I highly recommend Marcella's!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We really enjoyed our time and can't say enough about the wonderful service. This is my favorite Short North spot!"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "This is an excellent pre-game dinner spot. The happy hour specials were awesome and were honored in the dining room as well."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Always good food and good service here. Lots of small plates options and good pass around pizza."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "We had great service! We went there for a birthday and received a chocolate martini for the birthday girl! We also wanted to take home some food. The waitress accidently dropped two pieces of our pizza when bagging it up and she ended up having the cooks make another pizza for us to go! I will definitely go back! The meatball was also incredible!!"
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "Marcella's food and atmosphere never disappoints! We had a large group of girlfriends together for a monthly dinner and were all happy with our drinks and meal. We always start with meatballs and the pecorino and cheese appetizer and it's, by far, the best app in Columbus! The only downside to this experience was that our server frequently messed up meal orders, had a hard time splitting the check and gave my friends the wrong boxed up meals to take home. We've had great service there in the past, so we'll definitely continue to choose Marcella's as our "go-to" restaurant."
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "I thought the meal I ordered was flavorful, but the portion compared to the price was absurd. I was disappointed a small dinner salad was not included with my meal. Oh, I forgot this was a Cameron Mitchell (woohoo) Restaurant where high prices, and small portions are par for the course, and everything is a la carte. Not likely to return anytime soon."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Fantastic restaurant and food. Parking is a bit difficult, so give yourself enough time."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "I felt the menu was a little too upscale for my taste. The food was good, but pricy for what we ordered. My husband order the fillet and said it was good, but he's had better. I had the chicken marsla which was good too. Overall, we both liked what we ordered, but it didn't live up to the hype. And, it was really crowed and loud, as some may not like that when dining out. We had a table by the window, which was excellent for people watching on high street."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "There are many restaurants in the Short North, but this is definitely one of my favorites. From delicious appetizers to great wines, cocktails, and sangria, and of course main dishes...it's all delicious! Dessert is good too, though I recommend sharing with a group. :)"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "I've been to Marcella's a number of times. The last two times, the food has been both cold and somewhat tasteless. Very disappointing. I will try it again since it was do good in the past, but I will be looking for alternatives in the Short North"
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "It has a very large selection of happy hour foods at 50% off. Service is great. Never have we had a bad experience there. Parking is terrible though."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "Great casual place to dine out, great service, great specials, and food it very good."
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "We tried house cocktails--all were delicious! Each of the 4 of us tried a different entrée--they were all excellent. Our server was terrific--he knew his menu, gave recommendations, extremely personable and made it fun. We look forward to returning and trying different items. Oh yeah, and some more cocktails!"
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "For Gluten Free Pasta Lovers this is the place!! They even bring you hot gluten free bread!! The pasta was wonderful and the beet salad was awesome!! Great Gluten Free menu with tons of choices."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "It was a Friday night when I was meeting up here for a first date. It was extremely busy of course. Staff was quick and efficient. The good was delicious and waitress was great. Probably my best visit to Marcella's but that also may be affected by my company."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "We had spent the afternoon at the car show at the convention center. It was an easy and fun walk up High Street to Marcella's. Dinner and service was fantastic. Great way to end the afternoon"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Marcella's has a lively atmosphere. Ambiance is wonderful, food tasted was very good. We made the reservation well in advance, (one month) but had to wait 30 minutes for our table. The noise level was extreme, and we could not hear each other. When sharing the upholstered bench, diners next to us jumped up and down often, which caused our end of the bench cushion to bounce dramatically! Lighting was a bit dark, and made it difficult to read the menu. Our server was pleasant, but not as prompt as desired, due to large crowd, on a Sunday night. I would recommend with caution, noting that the noise level is extremely loud."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Marcella's was the perfect setting for a small bachelorette party! Great food, great atmosphere, and great service!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We are from out of town and found tis restaurant on Open Tabel, we a re glas we did. The food and service were great, it was very crowded the night we were there which increased the noise level. Nice wine selection and the cocktails were very good and well prepared; however the sangria seemed to have a lot of strawberries. Definitely recommend Marcella's to any one in the area that wants Italian."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "I really like Marcella's. I have been to the Short North location four to five times and have enjoyed it every time. The service is good, the waiter checked in on us for drinks and water often, and wanted to make sure we got everything we wanted. The food and drinks are all delicious and are pretty reasonably priced. My only word of caution is that though the appetizers, entrees and drinks are all reasonably priced on their own, be careful because it is easy to get carried away with the order and the tab will add up quickly. But, it has always been worth the final price. I would say on average, for two people to split sangria, two apps, and pizza(s), with tip, probably around $70-80."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "As with the other Cameron Mitchell restaurants where I have eaten it is to noisy to have casual conversations. The atmosphere is energetic and the wait staff is excellent. The food at this restaurant was good but a bit pricey for pizza and such. Still, I will go again when the occasion warrants."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "All the items we have ever tried at Marcella's have been excellent. But, I am especially won over by the "gluten-free" menu! This time I had the Sausage Pizza, and it was so delicious our friends had trouble believing it was gluten free. The quality is always reliable."

  • "We were celebrating 2 birthdays. Great place to go as a nice restaurant with great food and kid friendly. We had Steven as a server and he could not have been better. Great dining. Thank you for an enjoyable evening."
