Amazing time! Great place for celebrations!!
We had a great dinner to celebrate our 6 year olds birthday! Our server was awesome! Food was delicious!
Server worker very hard on a busy Friday night.
Food is always good, but the bolognese was a bit dry this time.
The potato pizza was tremendous.
Beet appetizer was a bit undercooked and the cocktails were somewhat skimpy, but Marcellas remains one of our favorite places.
Quality food and great service.
Lovely atmosphere. Friendly, helpful staff. Drinks were outstanding and food was DELICIOUS. Wow, what a meatball!!
This was my first experience at Marcella’s, but will not be my last. Every part of the meal was excellent from the calamari and Zucchini chips, to the Cannoli!! The service was good, but did seem a little overwhelmed with the crowd. Will be back soon!!
Visiting Marcella’s on a Friday night was great. We made a reservation and were seated right away despite lots of people waiting. We were seated right next to the doorway where people were waiting to get a table so it did feel a little cramped at times. Besides the space issue, the food was delicious and service was very quick. We will definitely be coming back for some amazing Italian food.
Went to Marcella’s for my sister in laws birthday and they did not disappoint! 😍
Great meatball. Seating a bit crowded
It’s always a pleasant experience when I dine at Marcella’s. Whether it be the polite staff, the well mixed drinks, or the delicious courses!
The service was good and I liked the ambiance, but all the food was way to salty and I tend to like my food on the saltier side. Also the red sauce was bitter, not something I would expect from an Italian restaurant
Never disappoints - tried pizza for first time- yum!
Service was very slow. The reservation had been made for a month and we were still there for 1.5 hours for just dinner and drinks. Also, found a few hairs in one of our plates. Great restaurant and would go back in a smaller group.
Why are the wine servings contained in anything other than a “wine glass”?
I had a wonderful experience as always. The food was delicious and service was great
Excellent food, service!! Delicious! Recommended to friends!
We waited almost 30 minutes after our reservation time to be seated, which was frustrating. However, the rest of the experience was fantastic. We had a great server and great food. I would highly recommend the house-made pasta dishes. We will be back!
This was for my husbands birthday. We had a reservation for 6 however that didn’t seem to matter. When we got there we were told it was a 45 min wait....why have a reservation? Our waiter well nice never told me s the specials. And never asked why we were there (birthday). The food was delicious as always but the staff left something to be desired
New Year’s Eve
This is an average Italian restaurant. Appetizer salads were very good. Entrees were nothing special. Probably won't go back. Better Italian options in Columbus.
The service and the food were fantastic. We really loved the beef tenderloin and the Italian sausage. Would love to go back when there is standard seating available. We sat at a high top table and were stuck in a corner by the bar and did not have enough room. Make your reservations early to get regular seating.
Always consistently great food and awesome service. Been many times - great place to take out of towners.
Family visit for apps and dinner with the kids. Always a favorite when in town! Always phenomenal! A must dining experience!! The Veal Meatball is to die for!
The restaurant is pleasant and the food is excellent. The service was okay - waited 45 minutes for a drink - but largely indifferent. The chairs are unbelievably uncomfortable. I don't know what they were thinking.
Great spot for a night out or dinner with friends. Food was good but thr pasta portions are small. Worth having an appetizer and/or salad with your entree.
We like most of the food offerings and enjoy trying something new each visit matched with our favorites of chicken Parmesan and pizza
We dined before seeing Trans Siberian and the restaurant was packed. Despite the crowd and time demands our service was great, the food was wonderful, and we will happily return!
The meatball appetizer was delicious and so were the Arancini. I recommend both. The wedding soup is very good as well. Nice place. We'll be back.
A favorite of mine...great food, professional servers, and relaxing setting!
Good food and nice atmosphere.
Service was okay. Not great. Took restaurant 25 minutes past reservation time to seat us. They said people were camped out and they would seat us as soon as they could. Didn’t offer any concession for the excessive wait. This is why we have reservations in the first place. 5-10 minutes is okay, but 25? Very unfortunate.
Excellent food, great vibe!
Our group of 14 had a fabulous time, the food was awesome as well as the service!! Happy hour was great, wished it was until 7 instead of 6!!! We will be back!!!
Party of 6 to celebrate my son’s graduation from OSU. Everything was wonderful at Marcella’s - From the sangria, appetizers, salads, dinner, and dessert - everything was delicious, well prepared, with friendly service. So glad we chose the spot for our celebration! Thank you!
Loved our experience and hope to return next time we are in town!
Food and service were excellent. But noise level makes it hard to talk. Would recommend it though
It was a great experience. We arrived a little early and got a drink at the bar. Our table was ready right at our reservation time. However there was a hold up in the kitchen regarding our entree. Dinner ended up lasting a couple hours, and I left at one point to put more money in the meter. I'm sure the kitchen was just a little slow that day and its not indicative of the restaurant on a daily basis. Great experience, I would go again.
I love Marcella's, especially the Short North location. I go there regularly for happy hour, which is great! On this night, I planned a work dinner party and it went off without a hitch. Great food, great atmosphere, and great service as usual!
Fantastic food, great service. Best happy hour in Columbus.
