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 had the veal martini as an entree and thought it was okay. Not much flavor.... More

Nice place to stop for a drink and rest. Located directly across from the convention center, you can easily stop especially if you have time between engagements. Did not eat there but as the food went by it looked and smelled amazing. Wonderful staff.

Every year when a small group of out-of-town friends come to visit we have our get-together dinner at Martini's. It never disappoints. As stated in another comment, it is noisey, but the food and service make it great. Our server, Yonetta, was outstanding. When I couldn't decide between two pasta dishes, she offered to serve a half portion of each.... More

Had a really good but slightly expensive business dinner at this restaurants. The place was packed and we had a high top in the front, close to the bar. The restaurant was very noisy, almost too loud to speak. The food was really good, the portions had the right size, the desert was a creative interpretation of tiramisu, and there... More

Martini is an excellent place for fine dining without feeling formal. I would feel no more out of place in jeans than in a suit, but the quality of the food is up there with the best of them. The servers are friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Our water glasses never got empty, but they also weren't refilling them... More

The best lasagna I have eaten in a restaurant in long time. I love the chandeliers!! Bad hostesses. Decent waitress. I do not see it for a romantic place. It is a little annoying having people from conventions in a very very casual dressing. Just saying.

We agreed this restaurant is awesome. Enjoyed the wine and delicious 2 plate dinner the way that the Italians do. Service was excellent and personable and informative especially since this was our first time. I highly recommend that you go especially on a special night.

Mantini's is one of the better restaurants in the downtown area and virtually across the street from our convention center. Great bar area, good service and wonderful food. Prices are fair for everything you get. Valet parking is available since street parking is limited. Busy after work spot for cocktails and appetizers. Also close to Arena district.

Thank bongrno
