There is a reason this restaurant is the #1 in Columbus! Anytime a restaurant has homemade pasta, I'm all in. It did NOT disappoint. The cheese board was also amazing. As a lover of all things cheese and pasta I can say this place would put up a good fight if it was in Italy!

The restaurant is located in an area with a lot of other restaurants and businesses so there is limited parking. However, there is valet parking. The restaurant has full bar service and a fairly extensive wine list. Menu is varied in Italian and other cuisine dishes. One of the salads was a Caesar that was made with Sweet Gem lettuce which is an unusual choice of lettuce for this type of salad since the Sweet Gem lettuce leaves are more delicate than the regular Romaine lettuce. Bistecca Di Calamari which is Calamari Steak w/artichoke hearts,tomato relish, grilled lemon aioli and arugula was good but the add-on vegetables and sauce really were more of a garnish. The grilled flatbread pizza were good but... The final assessment was that the entrees were good but not impressive. The service was very good.

Was there celebrating a friend's promotion, and everyone loved their meals. When, you must try to the cheese and vegetable boards!! Incredible homemade cheeses and the warm gorgonzola cheese was absolutely amazing - I could have eaten the whole wedge myself!

Special night out with wife for Mother's Day. This was second visit. Previous visit was 5 months ago, party of 4. On that occasion the sausage and ricotta tortelli, goat cheese ravioli, lasagna, and various starters were all excellent. This visit the tuna and cucumber tartare was amazing. My wife really enjoyed her portobello and linguine dish. I had the bistecca calamari which was to me quite unusual but also overly salty. Although I ate an enjoyed it I did mention to the waiter afterward about that. The restaurant owner (Rick) then stopped by for a chat about it and comped the meal on the bill. So they take criticism seriously. Also, deserts on both visits were truly excellent. And they have a good wine selection. Despite that one iffy entree, this is one of the best places to eat in Columbus and there are many good restaurants in town.
