TAT has been a gathering spot for family dinners for years. You need only swing by for lunch to see regular customers who have been coming to this spot for decades. The food is good, quality Italian fare. The menu is very straightforward. Simple but classic. Definitely worth the trip.

Carryout order - they forgot the soups supposedly included on the two adult orders. On-line menu said kid's meals came with small beverage and two sides. When ordering was told it now was no beverage and one side. $6 for mac and cheese and applesauce is a bit much. If you are going to have a website you need to... More

We stopped in here after a nearby football game on the recommendation of friends. We were not disappointed. From the service to the food this was old school Italian. We were five for dinner and we had everything from pizzas to dinners and everything was great. A small desert was included either ice cream or a piece of cake. I... More

The food and service were average. Did not like the experience outside of the restaurant in parking lot. The neighborhood is dangerous.

Tat is the oldest Italian restaurant in Columbus, Ohio and you can tell. It is old-time service and attentiveness, excellent food and drink and a welcoming atmosphere so lacking in many places today. We have been going to Tat for many years and I think the staff has remained and just keeps getting younger.

This is a staple in Columbus. The food is good and has been each time I visited. The staff are friendly (busy, but friendly) and the atmosphere is comfortable.

My parents have been going to TAT for 40+ years (not in this location)! Anytime I visit Cbus we always go to TAT! The food and the service never let me down. I love the Wedding Soup, fresh bread, and home made spaghetti with a meatball! I dream about TAT and can't wait to go! If you get there early... More

We are the oldest Italian restaurant in Columbus and proud to have been serving our community for over 80 years. With homemade spaghetti, sauces, and pizza, we know there's something here you'll absolutely love. Don't have to time to eat in? Don't worry, we also offer take out and delivery for our customers on the go. Our Italian food features seafood, steaks, sandwiches, and more. On top of our vast Italian selection, we also feature American favorites like BBQ chicken. Our restaurant also features a wonderful banquet room that's great for retirement parties, dinner rehearsals, wedding rehearsals, and wedding showers. Grab the whole family and bring them to try the oldest Italian recipes in the city, where there's something for everybody.
