This place has been a Columbus institution for many years. I have been here several times with my wife and friends. Never blown away by the food, but never really disappointed either. Traditional Italian dishes, generous servings, fair (in fact fairly low with specials, especially) prices. Consistent, if not great food and a very friendly family atmosphere. You can do... More

One of the oldest Italian restaurants in the Columbus area, The TAT family makes all of their dishes like my Husband's Italian Grandmother did. They have a nice wine list that will satisfy any taste. The Minestrone soup was wonderful with all of the vegetables and sauce and the wedding soup is excellent, very original and old world. All of... 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.

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 you can enjoy a... More

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
