Very nice overall experience. I have no complaints.
Always wonderful food! Truly enjoy every meal I’ve had there. Wish Coke products were the soda choice in house. Different more comfortable chairs would be an extra bonus!
Gnocchi and seafood risotto were excellent. Warm olives were not as warm as they normally are, but still good. Service was good. Will return.
My mother and I were visiting the area and stumbled up this fabulous restaurant. My mother is gluten free and was thrilled with all the options she had. The atmosphere was very nice and inviting and the food was delicious. I would absolutely go back
dinner was fantastic as always - were able to get us in early & our requested patio table granted as well. service was snappy, food was fresh and delicious. will be back.
Birthday lunch with my sister. Food was wonderful. I had pasta with clam sauce and it was delicious. We had a free birthday dessert and was there talking for over two hours. I’ve been here several times and it’s always excellent. My server was great and no rushing whatsoever.
Kind and caring service. Delicious food.
The food was nice and so was the service. The restaurant was busy.
We had an excellent dinner. The appetizers were delicious particularly the meatballs. Service was attentive! We also love the Short North venue. Our salads and entrees were tasty.
A friend gave us a gift certificate so we came for my birthday. Love the ambiance the service and the great food it was an all-out wonderful time. Had one of the pizzas and lasagna both were awesome. The tiramisu was one of the best we ever had.
Spaghetti and meatball is outstanding. Lasagna not so great.
Everything was wonderful, but the tiny little tables for 2 people that are all crammed together is very uncomfortable.
Awesome as always visit here when I visit my daughter at OSU. She is graduating and we came back again love the food, great service every time.
I had pasta and Meatball. The meatball was awful. Too much Park sauce cheese in the meatball and no seasoning in it either. Ruined what would otherwise have been a good meal.
We chose Marcella’s to celebrate our family Easter dinner. As always, the food was top notch and the service was outstanding! Marcella’s is our first choice for Italian food in Columbus.
We were disappointed in the food quality and taste - it was average at best. We love Italian food but there are many better choices in Columbus than this.
We chose Marcella’s for our 40th anniversary dinner. Highly recommended by our children. Was not disappointed. Best spaghetti and meatball I’ve ever had. My wife loved her fettuccine and meatball. The melted pecorino cheese plate appetizer was outstanding! The ipa that was recommended by our server was very good. An overall great dining experience. Looking forward to going again as there were many menu items we’d like to try.
Very hot in the restaurant
Services was great and the food was great
We had a few drinks in the bar first and our bartender was awesome, hence the higher rating. However, when we sat at our table in the main dining area our server was less than good. He never checked on us, never offered refills on drinks, and he brought out the bread after we were halfway through our meal. We felt very rushed with him as well.
It was nice and the staff acknowledged our special day!! Thanks
Not a fan. We’ve been twice and the food is subpar - how do you screw up Italian?? Wine list below avg. Won’t be back. Surprised that it was busy given the better restaurants that have shuttered their doors over the years.
Marcella's is one of our favorite places toeat in Columbus. The food is absolutely spectacular, and we love that they understand, and promote their Gluten Free menu! The service has always been exceptional as well, which is rare nowadays. Love Marcellas!
The food was exceptional! The manager was adorable and the service was excellent.
The service was outstanding, food was delicious, and price was just right. The only thing I would say was not outstanding is minor in the grand scheme just preference, I would have seasoning available for the dipping sauce and bread.
Quite disappointed. Very expensive but not worth it. Calamari appetizer had more fried lemons than calamari. Bread plates were dirty and the food was below average.
Food was great! Service was good, very crowded!
Service was tremendous, food exceptional. Tiramisu a must-try
Great food and service!
We were out on a casual dinner with a friend. We have 2 very young children and the server was very attentive even toward the kids. We had a great meal. We used to be regulars at Marcella’s pre- kids days :)... even now we find it’s a great place for a nice meal.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Marcella's. Our server, Bill, was so accommodating and kind. It was our daughter's birthday and he treated her to a dessert to celebrate. The meatballs are to die for and our other daughter loves the cannolis. Everything your order is made from scratch right there in the restaurant. We would definitely recommend.
Food was tasty and service was excellent. Just not a fan of long bench booth seating style where you feel like you are eating dinner with strangers. Highly recommend the meatball and beef carpaccio. Chicken piccata and lasagna were both delicious entrees. Food + 4 cocktails cost $117.00 out the door.
Our server was very serious, not even a smile the entire time we were there. He came across as not friendly. There's not enough room between our table and tables next to us. We kind of had to sit very close to our table so our chairs didn't bump into other tables. Food was just ok, nothing spectacular. We ordered calamari as appetizer and most of it was fried zucchini, not the calamari. I had Seafood Risotto and it's just one-note (salty). My husband had Chicken Parmesan and it was ok. Our friends had Eggplant Parmesan and Gnocchi and they're just Average. Cocktails were good, Cosmo and Lemon
Great good service and ambiance
Good food and service
Marcella's has quickly become a favorite place for my friends and I. We enjoyed a wonderful Friday night dinner together. The food was superb, with excellent service. We look forward to going back soon!
Always great time!
The meals were all excellent. And, the service was pleasant and patient. The restaurant can be a bit noisey for casual conversation.
