The setting is very nice, a little away from the buzzing main streets. All meals from starters to desert are delightful. Their wine and cocktail selection is great and the service is just fantastic. Waiters or waitresses can give you fantastic advice on what to...More

As an out-of-towner, it was a bit hard to find as the entrance is in an alley and there is no parking. When we pulled up, the valet wasn't around, so we had to park about a half mile away and walk back. The inside...More

The Italian scene in Columbus keeps getting better and Basi Italia is one of the reasons why. This is a wonderful little restaurant in the Victorian village. The decor reminds me of restaurants in crowded neighborhoods in New York and Boston. It's a tight squeeze...More

The interior does not seat many people, so plan ahead. The open-air patio behind the building is cool and quiet, but it's first come/first served out there. The food is magnificent! Try the sweet corn & crab frittata!

Walk down a little alley to find this adorable restaurant with patio brimming with diners out back. Yummy Italian fare and good wine and cocktails. Go to Basi, but no reservations on the patio so you may have to wait.

We enjoyed a delightful meal in this small, but beautiful, restaurant. The swordfish special was delicious, the servings were bountiful, and the service impeccable. The dessert, a thick custard-like caramel, strawberries and whipped cream creation was to die for! A lovely place to eat and...More
