Food always good, sometimes great.

An excellent place for drinks and snacks or dinner. The food is always good, sometimes great. Best to go with several people and share many of their small plates.Marcellas is ALWAYS busy, so reservations help. Pizza is interesting and crust always crisp. It's a relatively limited menu, but... read more

We regularly dine at Marcella's in the short north. Always a treat, especially in the summer months when they have the front of the bar area opened up and overlooking High Street. Food is exceptional. Plan to come early as there is usually a wait. Awesome happy hour food and drink specials, some of the best in the city. Note... More

We dines at Marcella's two nights ago as a large group for business that needed separate checks. They did not bat an eye at this request. We were seated immediately and the service was great. The food, wine, and drinks were all excellent and the waiter was superb. I had the meatball appetizer and it was the best I have... More

the place is crowded between people and just that they seat a lot of people. Friendly staff. Okay selection for wine. Had the Parmesan onion which was delicious followed by the antipasto salad. That had a slight heat to it. Not sure where the heat came from but it was good. Had good selection of Italian favorites on the menu... More

This was one outstanding Italian restaurant. Great food and great wine. I tried other's choices at our table and each entree was better than the last. This is one restaurant that I will return to each time while visiting Columbus.

I'm not sure if they were understaffed when we went, but everyone was frustrated with the wait time (reservation or not) and some of our food was cold. That being said, the specialty cocktails were yummy, the small plate dishes were super small but delicious (don't miss the parmesan coated onions) and our main courses were good.

My husband and I LOVE this place! The yummy bread and olive oil are a delicious starter. Their marinara sauce is out of this world! The pizza is incredible too! Try the margherita- you won't be sorry!

We ate at Marcella's for Mother's Day. The food was fabulous. I had the capellini al pomodoro It was light but very flavorful. The salmon was also delicious. We all shared the tiramisu and I believe it was the best I've ever had and I order it a lot. We will be back often!
