    This place is incredible ! John the bartender is a star, and the kitchen knows what It's doing. The tagliatelles is out of this world. Will go back every time I'm in Columbus. Bravo.

    Great italian restaurant - Nice to sit outside when the weather is warm. Tucked away in the Short North. Great cocktails too.

    trust John (bartender) to recommend cocktails, go early to grab a seat on the patio (they don't take reservations out there) and share the zucchini appetizer, delicious start to a great meal! Read more

    If it's your first time make sure you get the zucchini pronto. It's the best zucchini ever tasted (with olive oil, pecorino and almonds)

    Great specials options to go with. The Parmesan creme brûlée and zucchini apps were good choices.

    Take advantage of vino on the veranda every Wednesday now through end of summer. Perfect way to try wines and enjoy the patio!

    Everything we had was wonderful. The pesto pasta was so good and garlicky. Quaint and romantic.
