This is a warm friendly spot for food and drink. Good bar area with friendly staff. Prices are moderate, servings are large. Pretty average Italian fare for a red table cloth style restaurant. Food could have been hotter when served. Great deal for happy hour,...More

One of the best restaurants in Columbus and becoming one of my go to places for a great meal. First time having the meatball at it was delicious. Great place for a date or night out with friends!

Marcell's is by far my favorite Italian restaurant. Their pizza's has the original Italian pizza taste and Pesto Shrimp was my favorite! The appetizers are great too. Wish I had more room in my tummy to have their dessert. One pizza is more than enough...More
