What’s the point of having a reservation if you still have to wait, especially when your reservation is at 8:45 pm.?
I chose this destination from online reviews; we were celebrating two birthdays. The service was phenomenal, as was the food. We will return.
Always a great time this place never disappoints. Staff is always on top of everything and very courteous.
As always we had amazing food and great service! If I am ever have a difficult time deciding on where to go I know this place will never disappoint.
Service was friendly. Half of the food was pretty good; the other half not so much. Chicken parm was very good. Chicken piccata was dry and mealy.
My cousin was in from Chicago. She actually said “Chicago has nothing on Columbus food”. We were extremely happy with our meals, apps, and drinks.
I really enjoyed the Gnocchi here, our appetizers and entrees were amazing. Atmosphere was traditional Italian and comfortable for dining with children.
A friend suggested. He is a very wise friend. With a keen palate.
Amazing as always!
Great meal (gnocchi and gluten free chicken parm) and wine list. A little loud for a romantic meal.
Wonderful food! Will def be returning.
The food is absolutely AMAZING!! The hostess and server were less warm, friendly and attentive this visit. Manager was bubbly and inviting.
My salmon was done perfectly. My server, Kristen, was very knowledgeable about the wines and provided awesome service throughout the entire meal.
We arrived on a busy Friday night so the restaurant was busy. The hostess was friendly & sat us timely manner. Our server was friendly & thorough despite being busy! She was helpful with food choices and how much to order (we were ordering only small plates instead of meals). The food runners were also friendly and explained what they were serving. We enjoyed our food and will be back again!
Excellent service. The food was excellent too. Went there during happy hour and the drink prices are very good. Recommend to make reservations for dinner. It gets very crowded.
We made a reservation and still had to wait for almost 20 minutes.
We had reservations for 845 wasn’t seated until 1045. I wish someone would have been honest and told us it was going to be 2 hours we could have figured something else out. Each time I asked when we were going to be seated, I was told a few minutes longer.
The best part of our evening was our waiter. Joel did an amazing job. Unfortunately no manager apology for the wait or anywhere in site.
As always Marcella’s was excellent! Our server seemed to be a little overwhelmed, perhaps more tables than she could cover at one time. Other than that everything was top notch!
So nice.. made reservation and sat immediately when we got there.. waiter excellent and food and drinks wonderful!!!!
Love eating at Marcella’s because it’s the best Cam Mitchell restaurant around. It’s not overpriced and the food is almost always very good. Drink prices are reasonable (wines are a bit pricey) and are often an interesting twist (no pun intended) on the standard cocktail.
They often try to seat a table if two in the back where some of the worst tables are, but a little push back gets you a better seat. It can get really crowded and noisy, but the vibe is interesting and somewhat eclectic.
I dime here often and it is always spot on. But this night? What’s!
Second time I’ve been to Marcella’s and the food never disappoints. Wait staff was on point and knowledgeable. Food was delicious. Beautiful space. Can’t say enough nice things about the restaurant.
Food and service a home run every time. This is my 4th time here and plan on returning many more times!
Marcella’s has amazing, authentic Italian, food, with great appetizers to share, along with a smooth, yet bold cocktail selection.
One of my favorite restaurants!!! The food was outstanding, and great wine list, with great house wines to browse through.
Do yourselve a favor and make a reservation and go!
Food and happy hour were great, our server was not. No biggie, we’ll be back.
We had a reservation, but it took 25 minutes beyond the reservation time to get seated. After being seated, it took another 15 for the waiter to acknowledge us for the first time.
The food was good, but way too expensive for the quality and quantity served. This restaurant is extremely overrated and should not be held in as high of regard as people talk about it. I've had better tasting Italian at a better restaurant for a much lower cost.
I have no desire or intention to return.
Great place for a group outing. Loved all the Gluten free options! Had to wait 15-20, even with reservations.
Love the children’s menu and gluten free options. Wonderful service at the downtown location.
Server was great. Food was spot on.
I can always count on Marcella's for an enjoyable evening. I was celebrating my birthday, and wanted someplace festive, with a fun and lively atmosphere. Oh, and good food, too! Marcella's was my first (and only) choice, and lived up to my expectations. Thank you!
Good basic Italian American fare at a reasonable value for portions and quality. Very simple menu that makes it easy to decide what to have. The staff is good but doesn’t have the same polish as they do at Guild House or the Pearl, but not impolite at all and not overbearing either.
Only downfall of night was to have made reservations weeks in advance for wife’s birthday but still had to wait extra and ended up seated right by the door on a cold night. Being picky, but sometimes those things distract from having a good time with my group.
Absolutely amazing food and great service!
Wonderful evening! Such a fun atmosphere - albeit a bit cramped up front. Still best place to sit and experience High Street!
Great restaurant with great service
I had a great time at Marcella’s. The food was great, the prices were great, and the service was very fast even though it was Valentine’s Day and the restaurant was packed.
Excellent food and service! Everything was homemade and wonderful.
Fun, energetic environment, great food!
It was Valentine’s Day, so it was very busy. We were seated by the kitchen, although there were other tables available from the time we arrived until we finished.
Our server forgot to give us bread. But otherwise she was attentive and on top of things. The salad dressing was way too strong . The pasta was quite good, my husband enjoyed the lasagna and I enjoyed the Capellini a great deal. The bread, when we asked for and received it, would have been better left forgotten altogether. The Chocolate Almond cake, which we split and was plenty, was exquisite!
Wonderful place. Went the day before Valentine's Day with expectations it would be crowded and busy. While that prediction was true, the service did not lack in any way. The server was great, our food came quick, and our drinks were brought fast. Definitely recommend this place for a fun special date night.
