I always get a bit tense when I see bench seating and this is what this place had. Very similar to a Cheesecake Factory layout and very... read more

Food is good, but prices are high and portions are small. It is usually really busy, so service can sometimes be slow.

Went here for my birthday last weekend and once again, they didn't fail to impress everyone at the table. Here is what we enjoyed: Each time my husband and I go we like to share a few items so we did get a lot...here goes! 1. The bruschetta - Hands down best in the city. The ricotta and roasted tomatoes... More

Stopped by on a Sunday night to a wonderful warm trattoria like atmosphere. All entree selections were great---gnochi, short ribs, linguine w/clam sauce. Discount on bottles of quality wine as well.

We enjoyed a wonderful lunch and great service. First let me praise the server for his friendliness and informative nature. Next, the food is awesome. Everything but pasta is made desk on site and you can taste it. My spouse had a Sunday salad which is a salad with Italian dressing and a large meatball. Both items were very good.... More

This little spot is packed most of the time - and for good reason! The atmosphere is lively and fun. It's a bit loud, so don't come here of you're looking for quiet conversation. Do come if you're looking for a fun night with great food! Share small plates like the Parmesan onions, meat and cheese plates, olives... Or have... More

This was our 2nd time eating here while visiting Columbus. The Chicken Marsala, Goat Cheese Stuffed Ravioli and the Fried Calamari we delicious. There was a timing issue in the kitchen and our appetizer arrived with our entrees. However, our server made the situation right by deducting it from our bill. Our meal was one of the best that we...

Okay, this used to be my favorite restaurant close to the convention center. In fact, I was looking forward to eating there this year. When I saw the prices, I thought, "Wow! They did not increase the price." But it turns out they decreased the quality. I ordered chicken marsala and it only had three small pieces of chicken. Also,... More

Walking the Short North area, we visited 4-5 of the fun restaurant/bars . This is a "do not miss " place! Italian food.. Authentic and yummy. Floor to cooling windows that open to the street and a long bar that's dark wood and full of character. We started just with craft beers ( I had Abita Amber) then asked if... More
