    Always a great experience! Visited last night for a belated birthday dinner. Food was exceptional and the veal meatball is a must have. Wanted to send a special thanks to, Julia, our server. She was absolutely fantastic and is so far the best server we have had at this location. Thank you, Julia! You made our evening exceptional.

    Just an all around outstanding experience. Only possible critique is servers have too many tables. And there are a lot of servers. Happy hour means 1/2 price on a lot of the menu and drinks. Do not miss Marcella’s if you are in Columbus.

    We love Marcellas. We often to the other location just because it is more convenient. A friend was in town staying in Short North so we went there..the biggest complaint is how long you have to wait for a table even with a reservation (and there is no place to sit) Otherwise great

    Great food! Try the giant meatball and the potato pizza and you won’t regret it! Great atmosphere. It does get a bit loud in the restaurant, so not a great place for an intimate conversation. I have been 3 or 4 times and food and service were consistently great!

    We always have a great experience at Marcella’s and this visit was no exception. Our server was amazing and helpful with our choices. I was beyond ecstatic to have gluten free bread and so many gf options. The chicken parm was delicious. The rest of our party loved their meals as well. Overall excellent experience. We will be back!
