We agreed this restaurant is awesome. Enjoyed the wine and delicious 2 plate dinner the way that the Italians do. Service was excellent and personable and informative especially since this was our first time. I highly recommend that you go especially on a special night.

Mantini's is one of the better restaurants in the downtown area and virtually across the street from our convention center. Great bar area, good service and wonderful food. Prices are fair for everything you get. Valet parking is available since street parking is limited. Busy after work spot for cocktails and appetizers. Also close to Arena district.

We stopped in for dinner during our business show and they were a little overwhelmed by a full restaurant. The food was excellent however it took forever for it to arrive and could barely order a drink. The Arancini app was one of the best ever and the lasagna portion was huge and delicious. The scallops were good however only... More

We booked this restaurant one week ahead through Open Table to celebrate our son's 18th birthday (which was noted in our reservation and verbally confirmed with the restaurant when they called earlier in the day to confirm). When we arrived at 4:30 for our reservation we were seated at a table right next to the bar even though no other... More

Stopped in here during a visit to Columbus for the Arnold Classic. It was one of the few places that seemed empty at lunch, but not for long! The service was amazing and the food was just as amazing, too. The panini chicken and the Martini burger were absolutely delicious. So was the arinichi. Great place - would definitely go... More

First impressions are everything. Waiting 11 minutes for a valet to park your car sets the tone. And it wasn't good. Service was terribly slow an inattentive. Food was mediocre. Still interested? The carpaccio started was the highlight of the evening. Just like at other Cameron Mitchel establishments, the beef was paper thin and full of flavor. Sadly, that's where... More

So we had a CM gift card that had been sitting around for a while, so decided to use it Friday night for dinner before The Bodyguard at the Ohio Theatre. Martini was the only CM restaurant that had a reservation at 6 pm, so we jumped on it. What a great experience! We arrived around 5:45, so we were... More

While in town for business a few of my colleagues and myself decided on dinner here one night. The service was terrific and the food was amazing. I had the lamb which was delicious! Would definitely recommend!

In town for the AAA Great Vacations Expo and after a 12 hour day the walk across the street to Martini was like an oasis. Greeted with smiles from the entire staff, and this was at 7:30pm. Angie, our server was like speaking to one of Columbus's best travel guides. Besides helping us the menu, we wanted one of everything,... More

We stopped into this spot just for a drink and after seeing the meals served decided to stay. The lamb pappardelle was the best I have had anywhere. Nice chunks of lamb in a fragrant hearty sauce made it perfect for a cold evening. And the pasta was perfectly cooked al dente. We just ate at the bar and the... More
