My wife ordered lasagna, noodles were tough and it was dry, assume sitting for long time before serving, it was not good. The lamb gnocchi was not what I have had before from Marcella's. The profiteroles were not good, they pastry part we could not cut through, very stiff, which made it very difficult to eat. Wine and services was good as we expect from a Cameron Mitchell restaurant but we were, for the first time, very disappointed with the quality of food. It was our wedding anniversary which made the experience poor. Maybe Marcella's in short north is a better quality?

Enthusiastic cook and food lover,
Andy

Hard to believe it’s Cameron Mitchell restaurant. The pasta was mushy and the clams and prociotto were dried out. Very sub par. Will not go back

Exquisite food, some good wine choices, and freshly made cannolis. Impeccable service. We could hear each other very easily at our table, which is uncommon in too many restaurants. Very pricey, but very excellent.

We always enjoy Marcella's. The food is always very good and it's always consistent. The noise level can be a bit much but everything else is great.

The food was good. Unfortunately, we ordered several appetizers that didn’t come until about one minute before our entrees. No time in between so felt very rushed & a lot didn’t get eaten. Also expected more upscale atmosphere for our special occasion dinner.

Enjoyed our first time and will return when we are in the Columbus area. This is a second Cameron Mitchell restaurant that we have tried and both are excellent. They type of service and food I would expect. Our server was friendly and helpful.

The food was amazing! I tried Calamari for the second time and it was better than what I had at another restaurant. Our server was wonderful and stayed on top of everything. We didn’t have to ask for anything. The overall atmosphere was great!

First visit in over two years. Still has the famous meatball appetizer and some good salads. Went with the bolognese and angel hair, and a sausage pizza livened up with great red peppers. Good value wine and wonderful desserts. Its a lively, not romantic or quiet venue. Overall a very good experience. Had an absolutely outstanding server, Cat.

It was a Friday night dinner for our family plus my parents who were visiting from out of state. The food was delicious as always but the service was bad. Our waiter looked pained when I asked for anything. Our food took forever and the place wasn’t packed. It was hard to even find our waiter for service. If it weren’t for the food (and the value for what you get) we wouldn’t be back. Improve your wait staff and customer service please!!

We come here every so often and my friend and I always order the same thing because we love it so much. But this time, it was really just average. The dressing on the salad seemed like it had too much vinegar or something, it was kind of tart. I’ve always loved the Sunday salad and it just wasn’t the same this trip.

First time eating there. The meatball was delicious. The veal was tender and very flavorful. Red sauce was mild and enhanced the flavor of the meats rather than overpowering it. We will definitely be back again. Thanks for a great experience.

My food was ice cold when it came out and the server was no where to be found. Seemed like the server just wanted to turn the table and was not focused on our table at all. Pretty upsetting as this is a Cameron Mitchell restaurant and I’ve heard nothing but good things. So disappointed. Went for my 1 year anniversary. Would have rather gone to Carabbas.

Casual Italian with well prepared dishes. The menu strongly favors casual food, with lots of small plates and dishes suitable to share. The menu is not especially imaginative, but the dishes are well prepared and not focused on Southern Italian red sauce. The noise level is a little high my date and I had a little trouble hearing each other unless we spoke loudly, so maybe not a first-date choice. Otherwise very nice. I will return.

Nice spot for a gathering of friends. The food is well prepared and modestly priced. The service was good. The noise inside was too much so we moved outside. We were celebrating an anniversary and it was a nice place to toast the couple.

Chicken giardiniero is my new favorite dish! It is pan fried just right and the vegetables on top are crisp and delicious. The salads are always amazing and our 5 year old loves the bread, penne and fruit. Thanks for always taking great care of us!
