Tried to eat here on a Friday, but they were full to overflowing. Made an early reservation for Saturday and were rewarded with a fine experience. Seven at a round table. Bruschetta, meat and cheese platters, Caesar salad with the finest anchovies ever (even those who normally pass on anchovies liked them!), cheese pizzas for the youngsters, eggplant ravioli, gnocchi...

We were visiting OSU. The place seemed further then available options in the near OSU area. Took about 10-15 minutes. It was our first visit and Sophie did a great job explaining the options. She suggested rather then order an app and meals per person to share it tapa style. There is a stack of little plates on table so... More

The most authentic Margherita pizza outside of Italy! So delicious and fresh. It wasn't very expensive, either.

We knew we were in for a treat as soon as we walked into this warm and comfortable restaurant. It was bustling with happy diners and attentive staff. We ordered homemade gnocchi with Bolognese sauce -- decidedly the most delicious Bolognese I've ever had -- and penne a la vodka -- also very satisfying. The menu doesn't tell you that... More

I'm tempted to just write risotto over and over again for my review. It's that good. But then I wouldn't tell you about the baked Parmesan onion appetizer or the fun, bustling atmosphere. This is a fun spot for big groups - order lots of dishes to pass and share. The bar is fun, too, and there are lots of... More

We ate at the bar and had a great meal. The bartender was friendly and service was great. Both of our meals were excellent... More

We went on the Sunday night before President's Day and the place was packed. We found seats at the bar and ordered cocktails. We were not sorry that we tried something new, but neither of us really liked the drinks we ordered. We decided instead of waiting on a table, we would just eat at the bar. The bartender was...

Disappointing. We have been here a couple of times and have come away came here for dinner now in the last few months and the food really hasn't gone our way. Let me say that the service has always been fine. However, during our most recent visit, the calamari was really terrible. Super fried and pretty tasteless. The kicker was... More
