“Fantastic Find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

My husband and I are from the Cleveland area, so we decided to stop at Melt and check out the new location at the Short North. While having a drink, we quizzed the bartender on great local establishments to grab dinner. She recommended Cameron Mitchell restaurants and stumbled upon Marcella's (pronounced Mar-chella's). We ordered a warm cheese dip and the veal meatball -- both were incredible! Our salads were excellent (I did the beat/goat cheese and he had the antipasto). The pizza was so-so, but because of our first tastes of the other food we would go back again.

“love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

This is a place my son likes to go when we visit him. (He's a student at Ohio State) Great pizza, good service, and nice ambiance. Some good beers and wine available to make all of us happy.
