I made reservations one week prior and was seated at one of the worst tables because it was right next to the kitchen and the staff kept hitting my chair as they walked by every minute. The fact that they even put me at that table was absurd. There were many tables around me that were open although they refused... More

Visited Columbus and heard this Marcella's should be a good choice. We were 7 and tried many like: bruschette, calamari, pizzas, lasagna, marsala chicken. What we found really excellent - the big meatball. Juicy and tender, with a goo sauce. The have the meatball as appetizer or combined with different pasta (spaghetti, fettuccini). The Caesar salad is also remarkable. Good... More

What. A. Pleasure. The ambiance was great. Good design is important in an urban restaurant for me. Food was excellent. Great buzz in the restaurant as it was busy, there were many people waiting for a table. Prices were very competitive. But what put this restaurant over the top for me was the service. We had a solid server, but... More

Much better choice for family dinner than some of the usual choices. Kids can find pasta, pizza and chicken while I can find something really good to eat.

Visited our son at OSU and decided to take him and his roommates to dinner. First thing we noticed was the table height to chair ratio. The boys are all over six feet tall, and the table was so short it nearly touched theirs legs. The food was good! It was a Sunday night and the place was quite crowded.... More

This is another Cameron Mitchel property, argueably the best restaurants in CMH. I love the Meatball at Marcella--it's fantastic. It will typically be very business, so plan to get there earlier than necessary if you're in a rush. The front windows open in the warmer months and it gives the place a great feel. Both dining inside and walking by.... More

There was nothing negative about this restaurant. The lighting and atmosphere were intimate and not to loud. Their speciality drinks (to include sangria) were good, which I don't think is the case very often. I loved the cheese, crackers, apple, and honey appetizer and they have the most tender/soft meatballs I've ever had. Will definitely dine here again when traveling... More
