RESERVED THE WHITE TABLECLOTH, ENDED UP AT THE BAR !!

The Wednesday night fixed price menu with wine flights is attractive and I will take advantage of it on a future trip, but the Every Night Happy Hour (5 to 7) drinks and appetizers were too good to pass up. The wine selection at $5 per ample pour was excellent and the special appetizers (at... read more

Number one restaurant for a reason. Went here while on a business trip. Everyone at the table really enjoyed their visit. Lots of unique items on the menu with some very good specials. Good choice of beer on tap too. Staff was very helpful and the owner stopped by after dinner to ensure we enjoyed our visit. I will return... More

I've never written a review, but this place is just that good. Owner is super nice and it's obvious they have everything organized excellently. And the food! Delicious! Fresh, and clearly well prepared. And not super pricey. First nice restaurant in Columbus we went to and felt that it was worth making the trip and spending the money

From talking on the phone with the owner, Rick, to him greeting you at the door. He shows real pride of ownership. The restaurant decor was perfect, the staff was friendly and knowledgable, and the chef created an incredible menu of amazing food. I highly suggest dining at this restaurant whenever you want great Italian food.

Had dinner with a few friends at the restaurant the other day. The owner did a great job accommodating our large group. The food that came out was fantastic. Tapas, appetizers and main courses - everything was delicious and nicely presented. One of the best of its kind. One thing that rubbed us the wrong way though was our waiter,... More

This restaurant is wonderful. The table placement provides privacy. The wait staff is attentive but discreet. The food is over the top great. It hits all the boxes.

We met some old friends at the restaurant. Had a very relaxing and good dinner. The roasted beet salad was excellent and the fish and pasta dishes were as well. We finished off with 4 different deserts and all were excellent. A great value as well. Would highly recommend the restaurant!

Beautiful restaurant and deserves the #1 rating! We were impressed that they called us to confirm the reservation and let is know that they have valet parking. We had an 8:00 reservation and were not seated until 8:20, not a big deal since we were enjoying wine at the lovely bar with great service. The owner and manager were apologetic... More
