We sampled quite a few of their offerings. Their macarons were delicious - a touch too dense for me, but still great flavors & plenty on hand, and the croissants were good. The Croque monsieur, however was, IMHO, perfection. My only complaint is that they do not offer a Croque madame - a personal favorite. But, it was served with nice fresh greens. My daughter had the tomato provençal eggs, which she really liked, (so much so that I did not get to taste them!). Pricey, but a nice stopover if you are in German Village.

Love this place! Food is awesome. I had the tomato provencal baked eggs with toasted croissant and they were delicious. Oh My Goodness on the macroons. Lightweight and melt-in-your mouth delectable. Spotlessly clean establishment. Wish I didn't live four hours away.

I'm sure you've heard the saying that if something's worth doing, it's worth doing right. Well, the crew at Pistacia Vera take that seriously. Very seriously. Just approaching the shop, you know you're in for not just a treat, but an experience. They go the extra mile with the special touches and details (including a jar of dog treats and water for your furry companions) that truly make your entire experience, from ordering (they'll let you sample a macaron of your choice for FREE) to dining, to just being in their establishment, something to savor. Even though they're known for their exquisite maracons, the Pain Au Chocolat is not to be missed!

I've sampled several different things from Pistacia Vera, and nothing has disappointed. It's not the cheapest place in town, but you won't quite break the bank to get some very delicious stuff. highly recommended!

We went to Pistacia Vera based on all the great reviews and it did not disappoint! The deserts are AMAZING! We had the macarons (of course) and a few of the other deserts. The only problem was that there were too many things to choose from!

Beyond the awesome food, I was incredibly impressed with how excellently everything was done. Every single desert looked like it belonged on a page of a magazine. The staff were incredibly friendly and patient with us while we tried to decide what to get. The decor was simple, but beautiful. There are little touches like dog treats and water for dogs outside, signs that encourage you to stay off your electronics and enjoy the people you're with, and complimentary ice cold water that just go to show that not only do these people know what they're doing, they do it excellently. This is an amazing example of how to run a business.

Pistacia Vera is not to be missed if you're anywhere near Columbus.
