Craft cocktails and higher end bar bytes with Italian flare. We had the house negroni, served over a giant ice cube and the carpaccio, garnished with arancini. Delicious!

I had a decent meal here but I would look for something else when I return to Columbus. I had the Martini salad, which was pretty good. It needed more prosciutto, since the menu claimed it was there, but there wasn't much to see. I...More
