You must order a Calamari and chopped salad to start! I promise you will mark this review helpful just on that alone! Great dinners and service, I highly recommend you dine here!

I travel to Ohio frequently on business, although this was my first visit to Columbus. My business partners and I strolled through the section called "Short North" looking for a place to have dinner. I haven't had any luck with Italian food in Ohio, even in Cincinnati, so we asked someone on the street for a recommendation and he told... More

On a whim looking for a place to eat while visiting town, we came here for dinner. Waited 30 mins at the bar and then were seated for a delicious dinner. We had the chef's specials. Service was friendly and attentive. Price was reasonable. Easy walk from the convention center. I'd highly recommend eating here, when in town, or if... More

We love eating at Marcella's! The Happy Hour deals are great. Worth planning your dinner around the time. Our favorites are the meatballs, sangrias, pizza and chicken Parmesan. We recently moved away from Columbus and are having Marcella's withdrawals! Highly recommend.

I came here with my family and was very pleased. We had the veal meatball as our appetizer, margherita pizza, and the pasta carbonara. All tasty. The service was good. The atmosphere was nice. The location is great. I definitely recommend it.

On a recent business trip, one of my coworkers recommended Marcella's for an Italian dinner. Six of us ended up agreeing to go, so I made a reservation using Open Table. I am so glad that I did, because they were expecting us as we rolled in at our reservation time, and the place was PACKED! The food was the... More

Loved the casual atmosphere and the food doesnt disappoint. Met friends for dinner and drinks. The bar made very good drinks and the veal meatballs are to die for. Loved the style of the menu, easy to share and taste a little of everything. Our friends that live nearby had recommended. Within walking distance of many other bars and restaurants.

We had a great dinner and a few drinks with friends and would definitely go back. The waiter brought me a different drink when he found out that I didn't care for the one I had ordered. Very friendly staff.

Marcella's, for being a small-chain Italian restaurant, has some fairly inventive and interesting menu choices, and some daily specials that are worth the experiment. The appetizers are usually very good, the veal meatball served in a cast-iron pot is utterly fantastic, and several entrees are what I what rate as top notch. Salads are fresh, sizable and accented nicely, and... More
