Great Italian Restaurant

This is a terrific quality Italian restaurant in the busy North Shore Restaurant area. Great staff and real atmosphere. Enjoyed some lovely classic starters and terrific pizzas and pasta. Has a very classy and intimate ambiance. Would definitely recommend it to others.

This one is a splurge, but on the whole a really great meal, nice atmosphere and good service. I'd go back.

We went to Marcella's last night to celebrate a family milestone. The restaurant was busy, but our party of 6 was seated exactly at our reservation time. We were promptly greeted by the waiter, and our drinks were on there table within 5 minutes. The atmosphere here is upscale but casual. The menu has a wide selection, and the quality... More

For the life of me I cannot understand why this restaurant gets so many rave reviews. Several months ago we tried Marcella's for the first time and were pretty disappointed. My husband's chicken picatta had none of the tangy flavor you would expect with this dish, and there was a line of people waiting to be seated who were pressing... More

My wife, daughter and I all had three different pizza's and each were very good. The interior of this place is awesome and the servers really hustle. Sit up front if you can. We were there for dinner and it was quite full; however, everything was still timed very well. The only minor downside is that the interior can be... More

Very good food and well presented and at a decent price. Columbus is over run with chain restaurants that serve bad chain food. Marcella's is a pleasant change and has a great menu and the food is really good. The atmosphere is high end but the price is moderate. The service was great and our waitress was very menu knowledgeable.

Sunday night is always a hard time for great food. Rigsby's is closed and it was raining as I picked up a young woman, she is 65, who was also looking for a place to eat and we wound up at Marcella's. The one mistake we made is that when we were asked whether we wanted to sit in front... More

Saturday nights are busy in this area so when told there was 45 minute I was ok. But almost 2 hours later we were frustrated, hungry, and tired. It was certainly crowded and loud so we went straight to ordering. The food was certainly very good and I would go back, but probably during the week...with a reservation!

We went to Marcella's with a large group, about 25 people. The staff could not have been more accommodating. No matter what we asked for, it was not a problem. I had the braised veal meatball, which was on the appetizer menu. The meatball, which was the size of a softball, came in a little pot with a lid. Due... More

Went Saturday night early for dinner. Great pizza and calamari. Very expansive wine list. The staf was busy and very friendly. The place was 3/4 full and so loud it was hard to carry on a conversation without raising your voice. Not a a date night place.
