Due to a lot of construction in the area, parking for this restaurant is very challenging. To avoid the frustration, use their valet service, but be prepared to pay an extra $10 for your night. We went on a Monday night and there were no parking places to be found. We eventually went 2-3 blocks away to the Columbus Convention... More

It was worth the 25-30 minute wait for a table. Excellent Italian pastas, salads, and pizzas, in a somewhat noisy pub-like atmosphere. One of our party was on a gluten-free diet, and she was amazed and delighted to discover that Marcella's offers a whole separate gluten-free menu. How amazing is that in an Italian restaurant, where most dishes have a... More

The selection is fairly limited, but everything we had was very good. The appetizers were excellent, and the meatball and chicken dishes were tasty and well-prepared. We had the red sangria, which was fruity and did not appear to have much alcohol. The atmosphere is great, but is is a noisy place, with TVs tuned to a sports channel. It... More

The food was delicious and service was good. We appreciated that they accommodated our large party. I absolutely love the atmosphere - cozy, loud, but comfortably old country! I would highly recommend!

A group of use ate at Marcella's while in Columbus at a convention. It was easy to walk there from the Convention Center. We were seated right away. It was during prime dinner time. We were seated right away and our server greeted us quickly. However, I think taking our orders took too long. We were already enjoying our drinks... More

Two friends of mine set up a surprise lunch; the manager on duty was fantastic in keeping me away from the surprise guest as I walked in with one of the planners, wanting to eat outside; they wanted me inside where my friend from Massachusetts was hiding behind her menu. the food was great; the service fantastic.

I travel a few times a year to Columbus and, each time I'm there, I go to Marchella's. I'll eat there 2 nights in a row if I'm able. I love their gnocchi and lamb, and their famous meatball is good too (though I prefer the gnocchi). The atmosphere is warm, friendly, casual. The wait staff are friendly, the prices... More

The food and atmosphere are great. Were seated and served very quickly (even on a saturday night). The food was so good. It makes me never want to cook Italian again. The meatballs and the spicy penne were delicious! The only downside is that the restaurant is SO LOUD. There is little to no sound proofing ( Musician) anywhere and... More

Loved this Italian restaurant, it has a nice selection of appetizers, entrees and libations. It is near the Ohio State University campus and gets very busy on football weekends.

Gnocchi! I make dishes with this dumpling at home and the gnocchi with braised lamb (gnocchi con bolognese) at Marcella's is terrific. i haven't tried anything else in my two visits , but my family assures me their pizzas and salmon were good, too. It was Father's Day. My girls treated me to the meal and they couldn't have picked... More
