Great dessert destination. Lemon tart and chocolate chip pistachio cookies did not disappoint. Was somewhat noisy inside. Placing orders is a little awkward - the counter area doesn't have good flow for customers.

I just adore pistacia vera. Try the macarons. Wow!! It is like this beautiful sugar cloud. The chocolate bomb cake is a must try. It is very rich but worth every bite. Have a nice strong espresso on the side. Make sure to also take home some pistachio chocolate chip cookies. They are my favorite!!

This place is great... I am not a big fan of too many restaurants in Columbus, but this is a great place to just come and relax. Its a must see.

This is the place to go if you have a celiac or gluten sensitivity. The macarons are some of the best pastries/desserts that you can get. You can get a dozen in any flavor (in flavors that are either perennial or seasonal) you want or a dozen as a sampler (one of each flavor that they have)

Awesome spot in German Village to start your day. Had the Nutella Orange Bostock and it was phenomenal, along with the almond croissant my daughter was eating. Nice outdoor patio, too!

We saw the review on your site for Pistacia Vera and on the 14th of Aug 2014 we stopped there. Needless to say the prior reviews were spot on. We enjoyed the macaroons an we tried all of them. The lemon tart was the best lemon tart I have ever had. Only wish we had this place back in the... More

I am a dessert fan like you would not believe and this place is the icing on the Columbus cake. Some of the best dessert I have ever had. Only problem? They close at 7 so get there early!

I could go on forever about this place! Everything we had was amazing! Quiche, almond crossant, coffee, and the macaroons! Oh man, they had 12 flavors the day I went and I got 11 to go (not a coconut fan) and man, those were all fantastic!!
