Food was full of flavor and cooked perfectly! Wine and drink list is very good too. Service was outstanding - Haley was our server and she added to the fun evening out with friends. She not only provided great service, but she also gave good recommendations for appetizers, meals, and wine! Restaurant has a great atmosphere that's not too noisy.... More

Read the online reviews and made my reservation. Arrived to find complimentary valet parking, and to also find our reservation was for the next day. Not to worry, a table was located and we were seated without hoopla. The wine selection was a Spanish red, and was fruity with tasting notes as described. The three beet salad was fantastic, with...

My husband and I joined two other couples for a nice night out with friends. We were greeted by Hayley (our server) and she could not have been more pleasant! The food (I had the fish, my husband had the chicken ravioli) and cocktails were delicious!!!! Great atmosphere, as well! Will definitely be going here again!

The food was definitely an upscale version of standard or everyday Italian dishes. Portions were on par for an upscale restaurant and extremely thoughtful and well presented. The pastas are all handmade and they even make their own in-house limoncello. The wait staff was very professional and we never felt like we were ignored or bugged. Overall it was a... More

If you're in Columbus for dinner, don't miss this charming spot. Wonderful surprise with delightfully unusual treatments of traditional & modern Italianate dishes. Best lasagna ever, and order or split the Monday Meatball app....like your mom made, only better. Very friendly and attentive staff, including owner Rick Ziliak, who came over to see if all was well....well, it was!

The tables are set further apart so you don't feel like your crammed into a restaurant. The food and its presentation remind you why you wanted to dine out in the first place. The owner takes pride in his employees and the quality of food they serve.

We wanted a lovely night out together - good meal and nice wine selection. We made our reservation on Open Table earlier on Friday afternoon and received a call from the restaurant to confirm within minutes. It seems they might want to wait a few hours to see if we've changed our minds instead of calling immediately after we've placed... More

This was by far the best restaurant we have ever been to in Columbus. The food was impeccable the service was amazing too and the atmosphere was to die for! We really were so so impressed with the homemade italian food and we are both italian and felt like it was right at home. When you walked in you felt... More

We were in town for an expo and decided to have a nice dinner and to celebrate a birthday in our group. The food was flavorful and prepared uniquely. Compliments to the chef. Doug our server was attentive and pleasant. The food came out a little slow or I would have given it 5 stars. Waiting an hour and a... More
