Attention to detail. I love business like this that take pride in artisan food. Macaroons are always a must, but there are lots of other fabulous things to try!

Always great...not good, great. The quality of pastry coming out of this little gem is amazing. Think, you are in Paris quality. Nobody in Cbus does it better. Very comfortable little tables WITHOUT WIFI, which I love!!! People are actually talking to each other! Try the rye croissant. Amazing. Also available are large cakes, tortes and macaroon for takeout. Coffee... More

I think the best way to capture how good Pistacia Vera is; my wife never can say which restaurant is her favorite, or what is the best of anything. This is the one exception she made. She said this is the best ever. We had the Orange Brioche, Almond Croissant, Rye Croissant, and the Fresh Ginger Frangipane. Outstanding.

Small gem of a place in German Village, improved vastly by seating. Enjoy a weekend brunch (quiche is outstanding) and don't leave without a box full of mouth-watering macarons in the true French style. You'll think you're at Laduree!

The best almond croissant I've ever eaten! The staff is always friendly and patient while you wonder and inquire about their yummy selections

It is a nice clean restaurant with minimal seating. Pastries are very good quality. Lunch items rather pricey.

Stopped by hear for a cappuccino and had a nice cup, along with great service and a very tasty macaroon. People are very nice, and their selection of baked goods is more than enough. Wish we had more of these throughout the city.

Delicious French Style and Modern Café in the heart of German Village, Columbus, Ohio. Can't wait to get back to enjoy another pastry. The best croissant this side of the Atlantic!

The waiter at Lindey's told us about this place and said they had a world class pastry chef. He wasn't lying. We walked from Lindey's and ordered $40 worth of pastry's between 4 of us. We ate every last bite. Everything was well made and the macaron's were one of the best I have ever tasted, light and flavorful. The... More
