We were staying in Columbus for the weekend and I needed a gluten free menu for my wife. Found this place around the corner from the Hilton. The food was great, the gluten free meal was better than mine. The service was great. The only downside was the clients. A very yuppie crowd that was very full of themselves.

Enjoyed a nice dinner here with a colleague on a Friday evening. A few vegetarian choices were available. Zuppa pomodora was tasty but should have been hotter when served. My colleague said the beet salad was quite good. They don't call it martini for nothing. Drinks were really good.

From the comfortability of the chairs, romantic lighting, and speed of chefs. Our food arrived faster than any other quality restaurant I've ever been too. Overall I found zero flaws on the service, food,... More

Visited on a Wednesday night in October and the place was pretty busy. There was only space let at the bar but we were not neglected at all and the service was excellent. The menu was varied and the food well prepared.

While I didn't get the server's name, he was very knowledgeable and could describe the menu and the wine list. The veal dish was done correctly and properly seasoned. Our Calamari appetizer was tender and accompanied with a bed of vegetables seasoned to taste. They use a scale for hotness, so pick your number-1-5 with 5 being the hottest. The... More

The place is busy and modern Italian feel. The bar seemed very nice. We had party at the party room in the back private area and food were good but service were very slow and seems short on staff. overall it's good ambience. I am guessing the bar and dining room might be better experience.

Beautiful for business and also romantic occasions. They also have more private area at the end for business meetings. Good treats some days like wine low prices.
