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

The drinks here are amazing. The appetizers are really good too. We were not crazy about our entrees. They were bland. Great place to go for drinks and apps.

Marcella's has all the trademarks of a Cameron Mitchell restaurant. The food is well executed and the service is consistently excellent. We went as a family of 6 on a busy Saturday night, and made reservations in advance. Our server was knowledgeable and accommodating of our party, from the grandparents down to the picky teenager. We knew going in that... More

The title explains my experience. Decided to go here for our homecoming dinner. Perhaps it was luck that we happened to be there on what might have been an exceptionally crowded night, but I could not walk around without worrying that someone would spill their beer on me. The food was extremely subpar for what my poor date paid for... More

Have enjoyed Marcellas at Polaris several times, but this one on High Street is much more charming...and fully busy on a Tuesday night. Had the gnocchi with veal--very nice. Lots of sliced Italian bread with oil & vinegar. Nice wines. Definitely will go back.

Four of us had dinner at Marcella's on the Friday evening of the Michigan game. The restaurant was very, very crowded we were seated perfectly on time with our reservations. Our order was taken promptly and efficiently by Sophie. Our appetizers were excellent, especially the melted cheese. The entrees were very good and hot (except the gnocchi which was quickly... More
