Early Bird Dinner before going to a Drexel movie.

As seniors we like to catch the 7 PM movies at The Drexel. The Tat is less than ten minutes driving and is located at the intersection of James and Main Streets. There's always a value priced menu before 6 PM and reasonable prices all the time. Obviously the menu has the typical Italian items so... read more

Atmosphere needs some work. had spaghetti which was good but the meatballs were cold and the waitress forgot to bring our salad until we reminded her after our meal was served. The florentine on west broad, the spaghetti warehouse or Ann & Tony's in West Jeff are much better.

A relative suggested TAT as my wife has been craving an authentic Italian lasagna dinner. The restaurant has been in business for nearly 80 years and I thought that this fact alone warranted a try. My wife ordered the lasagna dinner ($16.95) and I the seafood alfredo with shrimp, scallops and scrod ($18.95). The cup of wedding soup was cold... More

This was our 1st time here. The food was very good,service was great. I am not a fan of Italian food ,I went there because the wheather was bad and they are in the neighborhood, and they have other dishes on the menu. I had prime rib which was very good. I plan on eating there again.

TAT makes their own pasta, pasta sauces, pizza, soups, salad dressing, and bread every day and has done so for years. There food is delicious and the Restaurant remains family owned and operated in an age of chain restaurants and restaurant groups. If you're looking for Italian chic with $75 meal specials and over priced wine; go somewhere else. TAT... More

The world has changed but the TAT hasn't. Everyone on the east side and Bexley knows the TAT. And people keep coming for reasons that are not so clear. Very very average food and service . This was the place that to go if you wanted to impress your mother in law in 1970 or if your kid graduated. Nothing... More

TAT is a local tradition. The best Italian food in Ohio. Homemade spaghetti is outstanding as are the pizzas. This is a family business that has been in Columbus for generations. Quality food at reasonable prices. You can't go wrong when choosing TAT for a great Italian dinner.

We were driving around the Main/James area and with the lack of any traditional restaurants nearby, TAT was an easy choice. Why? Location. Whitehall is packed with places to eat: Bob Evans, Chipotle, the Subway at Wal-Mart, Happy's Pizza, Sister's Chicken, but there are no really great places to eat at all. Of course, who comes to Whitehall except those... More

Tat is a Columbus tradition. There's a reason it has been in business for so many years - it's good! Good food at good value brought to you with excellent service. It's a family restaurant, so don't expect violins playing romantic music for a secluded table.

Old established neighborhood restaurant. Wonderful staff and they make you feel welcomed!! Early bird dinners to 6:00 includes dessert. The eggplant dish was excellent.
