We arrived when it was still happy hours so $5 martini's! they have some interesting ones on the drink menu.
Dinner was excellent. I had the Lamb Papardelle - really, really, good.
I will definitely come here again.

Arrived without a reservation because we didn't imagine it would be crowded at 6:30 but we were wrong! We were put on a wait list and had a drink and appetizer in the bar. Food, drinks, service excellent. We were on a tight schedule, so when we did get our table, the wonderful server (personable and very accommodating) put a rush on our order and we could not believe how quickly the food came out. The food was delicious - atmosphere - staff - all top rate! I would highly recommend and this is on top of my list when I return to Columbus!

We had a light meal at the bar with a lovely bottle of wine. The food was outstanding, so authentic! My order was the tuna crudo ( tuna tartare balanced on a canneleni bean mixture with just a touch of lemon vinaigrette), which had wonderful flavors, and the panzanella salad( both fresh and sun-dried tomatoes tossed with croutons, greens, and an aged balsamic), very light and refreshing! Hubby ordered the lamb pappardelle, which was awesome, as tasty as the boar pappardelle we often had in Italy. The bar waitstaff could not have been more helpful or friendly. I could eat every meal here, but, alas, Columbus has so many good restaurants to offer! Do try this spot right downtown!!!

This is a 'hoppin' place across from the Columbus Convention Center.
When we first arrived, the largebar in the front was packedand the noise level was high because it was an old building.
2 people had filet's and said they were excellent.
Other 2 had veal and fish and it was very good.
Waitress was very good but wait staf was OK
Dinner for 4 with 1 bottle of wine, salads and dessert came to $300
Would definitely go back

Food is always outstanding. Dinner service is excellent. Beef carpaccio, salmon and pasta are favorites. Bar is very comfortable but bartenders are frequently overloaded and can't provide decent service to bar patrons.
