Friday - Saturday 4:00pm. to 12:00 a.m.
with you soon at Marcella’s Ristorante, Pizzeria and Wine Bar!
Our waiter was wonderful. Food was terrific. We are Italian and foodies, from Pennsylvania in Ohio (Dayton) visiting family. We’ll be back again it was that good - from appetizers through dessert. Melted pecorino was creamy and not salty; calamari and zucchini was tender, crisp and light; Chianti braised short rib was fork tender and the sauce was full bodied and so flavorful; the spaghetti carbonara was al dente, the pancetta crisp, the sauce creamy and the egg yolk perfect. The profiteroles were delicious and cake with chocolate ganache unbelievable. The homemade limoncello was light, lemony, refreshing and smooth. If you’re in Ohio and want a great Italian meal go here.
We had family in town and wanted to show off Columbus. We had a wonderful dinner and the service was amazing. Not many restaurants have staff that takes pride in their craft these days. Marcella’s does and is unique and refreshing in that aspect.
The food was one of the very best Italian meals I have ever had. Service was extra friendly . Drinks took a while to arrive.
Great meal and service
A must every year during Cultivate. A bit on the noisy side, but typical these days for popular food spots. food is consistently good.
The service was exceptional. The food was incredible. I can't wait to visit again!
Marcella's: magnificent as always. Come with an appetite, stay for the cannoli.
I think this has become an issue with Cameron Mitchell restaurants but, what’s the point in making reservations when you have to wait 45 minutes plus for your table? This is the third time I’ve made a reservation recently where I have waited for an upwards of an hour for my meal.
It’s very frustrating, because if I took the time to make a reservation then obviously I’d like to be seated on or around a specific time - not wait 45 minutes like the rest of the patrons walking off from the street.
If this is a new norm for CM restaurants then I think it will end up deterring a lot of people from making reservations overall.
Reserve Marcella’s every year during the AmericanHort convention. Group of 12 and as always were very well taken care of by our server. Exceptional dishes all around the table and a great, upbeat atmosphere. Should be on everyone’s go-to list.
In town from Chicago and this restaurant was recommended to us from friends back in Chicago. The food was absolutely phenomenal and we had the BEST waiter, Cody.
The Grapefruit Basil Fizz was a must-try!
Only place I’ve ever seen a potato pizza was Italy but this place has it- did not disappoint.
Everything was delicious!
We were a group of eight. Excellent service and very good food
Our waiter Cody was so nice, he helped make the meal more enjoyable.
The food was great too!
Great server! Fun time!
Our server was amazing. The food very nice. An enjoyable evening with great friends
We felt so special— thank you for acknowledging our anniversary and treating us so nicely. The food was great and our server Corey was just perfect.
Everything about our experience was exceptional!
The food, the atmosphere, the spontaneous manager contact, but the service, was some of the best I’ve ever had. Amazing.
My moms favorite place to go when she visits is Marcellas. Unfortunately I felt like the quality of the food went down a little. My chicken was super chewy. I also have to eat gluten free bc I have an allergy and I found a regular noodle in my pasta.
As usual outstanding from beginning to end. Anti pasta is great and the Bruschetta is so delicious. Had the Braised Short Ribs and they are so tender and full of flavor. Thank you for a great dinner! See you soon Marcella’s.
Great happy hour.
A favorite place to take out of town guests. Always forget how loud it is. Food was wonderful as usual.
The experience was fine… Nothing extraordinary but also not a bad experience. They did offer free dessert for my husband‘s birthday which was a nice touch.
We found the service slightly impersonal and rushed. The food was cold when it arrived and had to be heated up. The pasta felt very much like anything we could cook at home… But the meatball was out of this world. So truly a tale of two experiences.
Never disappoints. One of the best on the short north.
We enjoyed friendly service, a vibrant atmosphere, and AWESOME food at Marcella's! We had a table of 8 and were served promptly at the height of the evening. Food was delectable and the wait staff was friendly and fun.
Overall Marcella’s was just average. The service was adequate but there was no enthusiasm, conversation or mention of our anniversary by our server.
The energy in the restaurant was awesome and the pizza looked delicious. We stuck to apps, meats and cheeses which were just ok.
When we made our reservation it asked us if we were celebrating a special occasion, we mentioned it was our anniversary. Our server made no mention of it and the table beside us was wished a happy birthday and given a free desert. This was obviously a little disheartening to know our server wasn’t giving the same enthusiasm/energy to us as her colleague was to their tables.
It was an ok experience overall but we would never return if we went back to Columbus.
Our friend recommended Marcella's and it was the best decision we made in our trip to Columbus. It's in a great, cool part of town--Short North. They're on Open Table, but depending on time you can walk in and be seated right then. We went for a late dinner and our waiter was Fabulous! He recommended the Eggplant, Ricotta Ravioli and the Chicken Marsala. Both were amazing. For an app we got the Perochino Cheese plate, and highly recommend. Everything we got was so good.
Lasagna was barely warm when it was delivered to our table. We asked the waiter to take it back and heat it up, and he seemed a little aggravated by the request. The food was good though when served at the proper temperature.
The acoustics of this restaurant were so poor it ruined our dinner. I couldn't hear myself think of keep the conversation going with the person I was with.
We arrived about 15 minutes early for our reservation and they sat us immediately! Food and service were great.
Food was excellent! Unfortunately our service didn’t match, but didn’t ruin our evening. We really enjoyed the atmosphere and the meal.
Visited after a graduation ceremony to celebrate. Nice atmosphere, very energetic. It’s great that they are open until midnight on weekend for a late dinner.
Food was great, not a fan of how the wine was so warm.. as well as it being warm in the restaurant in general. Other than that, pretty good.
Very noisy, we could hardly have a conversation and understand our waiter
Our server, Anthony Wade, was AMAZING & the food was delicious!
The food was delicious. Our waitress was so good and very accommodating. We already planned our next visit.
I met some friends for dinner at Marcella's. It was my first time visiting this particular Cameron Mitchell restaurant and it did not disappoint. I had made a reservation just a few hours earlier and when I arrived, our table was ready and waiting. Our server was excellent, he was extremely knowledgeable about the wine list which I always appreciate. My friends and I agree that it was one of the best dining experiences that we have had in a long time. Do try both the Beet Salad and the Ravioli.
The food and service were both outstanding!
Service and Food quality is on the decline in the short north location. I enjoy the meatball, but this night the food was not good and was very slow service. The restaurant was not overly busy, so I’m assuming that there may have been training in the kitchen. Every dish at our table was room temperature and pasta was cold and watery with little to no sauce. Nothing came out together. We ordered 1 soup and 4 salads to start. Only salad came out. We inquired about the soup near completion of the salads. We were told it would be right out. It was 10 min later before we got soup. Then for the entrees. All but one were delivered to the table. Another 5 minutes before the final dish. However, they were not even hot...or good. We sent back one dish as it was not edible at the temperature. The remake was Extremely hot, however quality and taste still were not improved. We love Cameron Mitchell Restaurants, but it appears that the older staples suffer as new restaurants and concepts open.
Best Italian food I have ever had. Our server, Jared, was one of the best we’ve had in a while. Very outgoing and knowledge of the menu including huge wine list. We will be back again for sure!
