Diner Reviews
  • "Took two freinds from Germany. We had salmon, chicken saltimbuca and Carbonara. All we perfectly cooked. Service was good and a smart bartender. Only minor complaint was the server had no knowledge of the bar history but she was very nice about it and ovrall very attentive to our needs."

  • "service is great and so is the food. outdoor and in door ambience is super and their specials are always excellent."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "My food was delicious but I was disappointed by my waiter. I didn't finish my meal and looked forward to taking it home but my waiter took my plate and threw my leftovers out rather than boxing them up. Then when she was asked about it her response was "did you ask for a box?" Other than that I loved the atmosphere. Some of the pasta dishes are on the smaller side portion wise but I would go back."

  • "Great food. Fast service. Recommend for business guests and functions."

  • "Disappointed by server who argued over the taste of 2 dirty martinis. She had a bad attitude. Next rather than apologize and fix a problem, she tried to make our friends feel like it was their fault. When we pointed out a filthy glass was used to for a cocktail, rather than apologize again she acted put out. It was so bad we left and went to Tony's Italian Restaurant, where he had an amazing meal and great service."

  • "Food is always fresh and well-prepared, interesting, yet uncomplicated. I think everyone should always start at the bar, where bartender Tim is the ultimate host. The dining room is great, and the patio is good for people-watching. Casually upscale environment--not too hip, not stuffy. We've always been happy here--brunch, birthdays, group events, dinner. "

  • "Recently visited Due Amici for a celebratory group lunch. The staff as very accommodating to our needs. Additionally, the restaurant has an excellent layout for hosting large parties. As always the menu was great. They had a wonderful strawberry gazpacho soup that was incredibly tasty."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "We really enjoyed the overall experience of eating at this restaurant. We had the Lasagna and it was probably the best I've ever had. The bread, salad, wine and coffee were also very good."

  • "We celebrated our anniversary here, followed by a performance at CATCO. We were seated promptly and our server asked if we were seeing a show afterwards so that she could make sure we left in plenty of time. The food and atmosphere were great and the location to the theater was very convenient. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and hope to be coming back soon!"

  • "1st time diners- why did we wait so long? Due Amici has been open for ten years and boy have we been missing out! The veal meatballs are a must as an app! The meat plate was yummy. Next time we'll order the cheese too! Nice selection of wines by the glass. Looking forward to going back soon. "

  • "our visit was marred by the settling of the check. the credit card system crashed and we left with a written receipt. the staff then billed my card twice and i called to settle the account, which was taken care of within 24 hours. Too bad that the ending overshadowed an otherwise good dining experience."

  • "This was my first visit to this restaurant. It definitely had the atmosphere to make it a notable hotspot. Several large groups were in the restaurant and this may have affected the poor service we received. We waited at the table for over 20 minutes with just water and olive oil… No drinks or bread. No apologies were given and the food was mediocre. Although the bread was hot and fabulous, and the atmosphere was everything I had expected, this is not a place I will visit again. "

  • "First time here was a weeknight before a show at Ohio Theatre. We allowed two hour before show just to be safe. Would recommend that amount of time before a show...regardless of restaurant. Not overly crowded so everything went well from a timing standpoint. A couple minor glitches, but the server remedied immediately. Food was very good. Able to come up with a mixture of food that satisfied our light appetites."
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "I used Open Table for the first time to make a reservation for an early dinner before a show at the Ohio Theater. It was a fine spring afternoon so we ate outside. I had insalata mista, roasted red pepper bisque, sage & sausage pizza. Salad was wilted and overdressed. The bisque had very good flavor and not heavy. On the pizza the tomato sauce and sage went missing. The sausage and cheese were over-applied so the plate was full of oil. I didn't complain because it was just pizza and I was looking forward to the show, but the waiter noticed the oil in the plate and took it off the check. Not great, but overall it was not bad pre-theater fare and I'd try them again maybe not so early."

  • "Server was the best I ever had. In addition, the server went down the street to get an expresso for my Brazilian guest since their expresso machine was out of service! Great place for any occasion."

  • "This was the second time I have dined at Due Amici. Excellent service and fantastic meal. Menu is somewhat limited, but sure to find something you would enjoy. Definitely would recommend this restaurant! "

  • "We go downtown about once a month and Due Amici is our go-to place for drinks or dinner. We really enjoy the atmosphere and the food is fantastic. My wife loves the Peach Cosmos at the bar and the wine list is good even though it is not that extensive."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Service was sophisticated friendliness, the food was tasty, but it's kind amenities that make a meal an experience. This dining was merely a meal. Our wait staff did not refill our drinks, nor bring bread even though we asked. Portions were adequate but no flare. Valet parking-Superb. We were able to see our show at the Ohio Theatre and then return for our car. "

  • "Made reservations for a late brunch (1:45 p) on Mother's Day. Menu selection was limited but varied so no problems and the food quality was good. However we were in the back room of the restaurant with no outside light. The music was loud enough to make a normal conversation a bit of a challenge even though there were many open tables in the room. The service was pleasant but very slow (food took an hour+) and drink glasses were not filled or checked regularly - wife's water glass was empty for 10+ minutes and we had to flag a waiter to get it filled. Overall, the experience was acceptable but I doubt I'll be going back anytime soon."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I/we were very disappointed during our recent visit to Due Amici. The service was slow. It took almost 45 min for us to get our food. The servings were small, at best. We all ordered the pasta from the Brunch menu and were told they did not serve bread with the meal for the Brunch menu. I/we will not return, at least during the weekend when they only have a Brunch menu. When I was still working down town I visited the establishment on several occasions. Not sure what happened. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Took my wife and daughters (3 and 7) there for Mother's Day brunch. They were busy but there wasn't a line of people put the door. We expected brunch to take a while but from the time we ordered to finally receiving food it was an hour and 10 mins. We both ordered a brunch cocktail and the mimosa came out immediately but they forgot to make the bloody Mary that they claim to be famous for. They did have a station with someone doing nothing but making these drinks... Once we did receive the food it was marginal. The flavor and presentation was forgettable. Our server did nothing to reassure us that we would get food someday. No manager ever came around to check on patrons. My impression is that it is poorly run and they had 1 person cooking"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We were seated pretty promptly for our 12:30 Mother's Day reservation. We sat inside, but the doors to the outdoor dining were open, and it was wonderful! We had the comfort of indoor dining, but felt like we were dining outdoors. Service was spot-on, and very attentive. Food took over an hour to reach our table, but it was fine, as we were engaged in great conversation with our 20 something sons! We enjoyed our time together, the ambiance and the service. We all thought our food could have been better, but my husband and I will plan to return in the future for dinner."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Took my mom there for brunch on Mother's day and it was a total disappointment. I realize it was a holiday and it was crowded but we waited for more than 35 minutes for our server to take our lunch order after we were served our drinks. There were no apologies or recognition that it was an absurd amount of time to wait. Once our food did arrive after another 40 minutes, it was not very good. We had the special which was a quiche and their eggs Due. Both were a disappointment. The quiche looked like it had been frozen and come from the grocery store- it wasn't at all special or even tasted good. Same with the eggs due. I've had good experiences for dinner previously but will not be back for brunch. "

  • "This was our first time to Columbus, in town for a two day end of the week convention. We were staying a few blocks down the street but didn't want to be confined to the hotel restaurant. Took a chance on a nice looking website that had the dinner menu posted, went for a nice walk, and we were not disappointed! Great little restaurant and bar, with outdoor seating (if you like that). It was moderately priced, great atmosphere and a good variety of Italian and American menu offerings. Will definitely keep it on the list if our travels bring us back to Columbus, which I really hope they do."

  • "We had the best seats in the house! Great service and fantastic food followed. Our server was very attentive and helpful. Everyone loved their meals. Eggs, salmon, and lasagna were the choices. The pasta was a bit pricey, but my son said it was excellent. My bloody mary didn't disappoint. It was a lovely meal and a relaxing, wonderful way to celebrate the holiday after all the busyness of Holy Week."

  • "We enjoyed Easter Sunday brunch at Due Amici. We were skeptical of eating here because of a few non flattering reviews on Trip Advisor. The food was outstanding and service was great. We will definitely eat here again when we are in Columbus. "

  • "We went to Due Amici for Easter brunch and had 7 in our party. We really enjoyed the ambience and the brunch was delicious. The wide variety of special brunch cocktails offered great selections for all the adults and the younger adults enjoyed their juice and meals. Would highly recommend for special occasions or as a nice way to start off an ordinary weekend morning. "

  • "Maybe is was an off night. I have been to Due Amici dozens times and we enjoy it. I am not sure what happened. The entire experience last Saturday seemed like there was simply not enough kitchen and wait staff. From being greeted at the table, to drink service to finally getting dinner. While the restaurant was busy, it wasn't packed. The food was good and as always there was a nice wine selection."

  • "We were in from out-of-town and needed a restaurant within walking distance of a downtown theater. We found Due Amici simply by looking on-line and checking a couple of reviews. The food was outstanding and resonably priced. The interior is beautifully done, and gives one the impression of being in a "real" urban city. I would recommend Due Amici to anyone!"

  • "We often go to Due Amici before any show in the area. We always as with this trip guaranteed amazing food and drink, great service knowing we can get to the show on time. We went this past Friday night before the Rain Concert at The Palace, they had Beatles music playing which helped you get on the mood for the concert itself...."

  • "I went to brunch on Sunday 3/30 with a friend for her birthday. Once we got sat they immediately gave us ice waters. This was the best part of the entire brunch. After 20 mintues of waiting on a server, I finally had to flag someone down. It took another 15 mintues to get our mimosa. The food had potential to be very good if it wasn't cold when it was brought to the table. Our server was awful and forgot about our table multiple times. I don't think I would ever go back."

  • "We went for brunch and the atmosphere and service were great. The exposed brick interior is a really nice break from most stale restaurant decors. The entrees were OK, and would have been better if they weren't so starch heavy. For example, the salmon cake eggs benedict was already on thick English muffins and supplemented with a lot of roasted potatoes, but no fruit or other vegetables were present. The real draw is the bloody mary cart, which brings at-the-table customization to your beverage."
