Food was good :) the chocolate cake was just OK. We ordered 2 kids meals and didn’t receive fruit with the meals. One of my daughters ordered broccoli with hers and we got charged extra. We also got charged for a drink which is supposed to be included according to the menu. I didn’t notice it until we had already paid. It was my daughter’s birthday and we got a free dessert (chocolate cake), it was dry but fine.
My favorite Columbus restaurant. The service, food, and ambiance never disappoints.
Great food, service and a lively atmosphere. Great spot for dinner with friends or family, bit loud for a date night. The veal meatball was excellent, as well as the gnocchi. Great Italian wine selections too
Our server was amazing and friendly and the food was great!!
Amazing food. Lovely atmosphere. Exceptional service.
We have to eat gluten free and Marcellas’s was wonderful! Table bread and appetizers we could eat along with meatballs. Absolutely recommend.
Excellent service!! Great food.
Marcella’s was amazing. We loved everything about it - the food, the service, the atmosphere. The only thing I would change was that it was a bit too loud. That wouldn’t stop me from going back, but it was enough to discourage too much conversation cross a larger table.
Very good, we enjoyed out dinner and service
Lively atmosphere, but the experience still felt warm and personal. The food was wonderful and the service attentive. Would highly recommend.
This place is a must go to every time we visit Columbus! They never disappoint every single thing on their menu is delicious! However I love my go to’s… the gnocchi and veal meatballs for appetizer! The drinks are all delicious and we have never once had a bad server! Ask for Rodney he’s the best! See you next time Marcella’s ;-)
We had a party of 10 for a retirement celebration for my wife and I have to say our server was great. I don't recall his name but I could not have been more pleased with how he handled requests and orders for 10 people. He was very patient and accommodating. The food was quality. Prices were very good. The atmosphere was perfect. Would definitely recommend.
We had a later reservation but arrived early. They were able to seat us upon our early arrival. Our service was prompt and timely. Food was good. Very satisfied. Would recommend to others.
Amanda our server was amazing!!! The food runner John ran to the Pearl to get ranch dressing for my friend's son's pizza. That was awesome! The food was great!
It took about two hours for us to eat because the food took about an hour to come out. Also, when the waitress asked each of us if we wanted a soup or salad, it sounded like it was part of our meal. We found out when we got the bill that each soup and salad was extra. The price of the salads were $1 less on the digital menu they had us scan but on our receipts they charged us more and the waitress said she could not change it to give us the listed price! Not sure if I will be coming back
Great food and service
Loved it!! Excellent food and service!! Can’t wait to go back!
We got the carbonara and the big meatball which was outstanding! We kept getting refills on water and the waitress was attentive and helpful. Definitely a great choice and experience!
First of all the Bartender was very nasty (She knows who she is)Our waiter was a nice Guy. The Food was not bad. There has to be better italian food on High.st .
Good. They did try to sit us up front at a high table
Marcella's is always on our schedule when we come to Columbus. The food is so good. Always get the meatball for appetizer and the meat and cheese platter. Penne ala Vodka was a new try this time and like everything else on the menu it was just a bit different and delicious.
We were seated at a table which had us, quite literally, bumping elbows with the people on either side of us. It seemed to he an extension of a large table that had been pulled off to squeeze in another 2-top rather than just have some empty seats. The group to our right complained to management about how close we were to them, which made us feel awkward and uncomfortable. We mentioned to the waitress that we may leave due to how uncomfortable we were, and she promptly brought the bill for our drink, without a single apology or offer to move us.
I’ve left Marcella’s great reviews in the past, but I’m sorry to say that I can’t do that today. Considering the pandemic we are in, the situation seemed unacceptable and avoidable.
Excellent food. Excellent service. Excellent drinks. Excellent atmosphere. Excellent!
I loved this place, wished we'd visited sooner. Our waiter was great--always there with more drinks, offers of happy hour, and friendly service. The Chicken Florentine pizza was the best with a beautiful Caprese salad and a carafe of sangria. We stayed for a while talking to a couple at the bar because the atmosphere was very conducive to mingling. And the staff all had great T-shirts!
We were celebrating our anniversary- everything was outstanding. Our waiter Mike made our evening fantastic. Cant wait to go back
It was good but a little pricey for what you get imo
Great service, good gluten free options. A fun environment
Fried calamari was mostly overfried veggies. Very weak. Baked rigatoni and pizza were good. Our server was great but the kitchen had a tough time getting the food out. We were there at 530-600 the restaurant was far from full and it took an hour to get our food. I love the happy hour value though. Pearl was superior.
Service was terrible. Waitress ignored our table for at least 15 mins. Forgot drinks and attitude was rude.
Overall it was good. Fair menu, good service.
The best pasta I may have ever had! (Ravioli with truffle) Hostess, waitress and everyone who worked there were so friendly and helpful. I had an incredible experience.
Hostess was horrible
We have always loved coming to Short North and having dinner at Marcellas. We had friends with us this trip and we were very disappointed in the food. I have always raves about the meatballs but they were terrible. In fact, I didn’t even eat mine. The sauce tasted sour and no amount of Parmesan or red pepper 🌶 flakes made it any better. My husband order the potato pizza ans it was not at all what we were expecting. It will be awhile before we add Marcellas back on our list of places to visit. We travel from Toledo and we were really disappointed this trip.
Great service; reservation made for high top (only available seating) but staff able to get us a table on a Friday night. Food service prompt and attentive. Food for 2 diners excellent. Only downside is that our table was right up against a very loud party of six, making conversation difficult. Other ambient sound was lively but not unexpected. Overall great meal, highly recommend.
Waited a few minutes for a reservation that we had for weeks. However, our waitress was spectacular! Food very good & came out hot which is fantastic! Have dined here many times!
Rigatoni and the giant meatball were spectacular. Our server took great care of us.
Thank you Rodney for making my birthday so special.
Service was great-our waiter was a delight, atmosphere
was great as usual. I had the ravioli quadatrini-it was delish. Husband rwy enjoyed his pizza. Others liked their fettuccine and gnocchi. I took one star off cause our arugula salad that we split was so tiny it was like one leaf per person. Our other two friends got soups which were less expensive than our salads but they were huge bowls. Don’t really get it.
Food was good……Service was good…. Small
