Our family celebrated a birthday here. This is a family owned & operated Italian institution!! They have wonderful traditional Italian food along with chicken, seafood, prime rib & salads for anyone who may not prefer Italian food. Their Italian dressing is made in house & is delicious:) You can also buy in the bottle to go, which I did, since... More

The food and service were average. Did not like the experience outside of the restaurant in parking lot. The neighborhood is dangerous.

Tat is the oldest Italian restaurant in Columbus, Ohio and you can tell. It is old-time service and attentiveness, excellent food and drink and a welcoming atmosphere so lacking in many places today. We have been going to Tat for many years and I think the staff has remained and just keeps getting younger.

This is a staple in Columbus. The food is good and has been each time I visited. The staff are friendly (busy, but friendly) and the atmosphere is comfortable.

My parents have been going to TAT for 40+ years (not in this location)! Anytime I visit Cbus we always go to TAT! The food and the service never let me down. I love the Wedding Soup, fresh bread, and home made spaghetti with a meatball! I dream about TAT and can't wait to go! If you get there early... More

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

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
