    My favorite part of tuccis is their wine dispenser. I can get amazing wines by the glass in varying size pours. Food is always good. Can be a little loud when the bar is packed. One of my favorite places to go in Dublin!

    We went here to celebrate a girl friends birthday on a girls weekend. The service is slow in comparison to O'Charles or an Applebee's but this is an upscale place so don't expect fast food taste either. This is not a kid friendly place so don't bring children. We had a good tine and the food was excellent. They strive hard to make sure you are happy and fulfilled.

    We enjoyed another brunch at Tucci's on Sunday and were reminded how great this place is on many fronts. It was a little chilly so we sat inside and enjoyed omelets, a Bloody Mary, fresh fruit and toast...perfectly prepared and all at a great price! Love the ambiance and the fact we can walk around and enjoy Historic Dublin before or after the meal. Always a great time.

    Tucci's is just OK. Our server did an excellent job. She was attentive, knowledgeable about the menu, and proactive in making suggestions and recommendations. However, the food didn't live up to her descriptions. My husband's yukon mashed potatoes were tasteless -- they needed salt and butter or sour cream. My truffle fries were "gluey." Salads just OK. The noise level in the restaurant is extremely high, making it difficult to carry on a conversation. I had a very similar dinner a couple of nights later at Mezzo (filet, truffle fries, Caesar salad), and it was executed MUCH better. At the prices Tucci's charges, we won't be back because there are many better options in that price range.

    We went to Tucci's for the first time and had an amazing dinner and evening! The food and service were absolutely outstanding!! We hardly ever take our 16 month old son out to a nice place for dinner but we decided to give it a try. The waitress and staff were so nice to him and accommodating. I was so impressed that they had a children's menu and crayons. My son's kids meal was really delicious and a good price for a kid's meal. My dad was visiting our family from Arizona and was impressed. We had a pasta dish, steak, and fish - all were fantastic. The dessert was also to die for (silk pie, and pumpkin bread pudding). Finally, the wine list was quite impressive and we had a really nice bottle of wine. We can't wait to go back!

We've stopped by for a snack or lunch at the bar on a regular basis because we know the food will be good and the atmosphere fun and relaxing. All of the staff is great - we have never had a bad experience. The wine selection is great!

    We came from Madison, Ohio to see the Lion King saturday night in Columbus. We decided to stay in Dublin and were looking for a nice place for a good meal. Our daughter, who use to live in the Columbus area, had mentioned Tucci's might be an ideal selection. So we made reservations via Open Table. We can say that we were very pleased with her suggestion. Every thing was perfect as soon as we walked in the door. We were immediately seated and our waiter greeted us promptly. The soups we selected were a meal in themselves..excellent. We decided on the chicken marsala and knew from the presentation the taste would even be better. The entire experience could not have been any more perfect. A must try for a great dining experience!

    My Husband and I went to Tucci's for the first time for our 8th year Anniversary. Sarah Stevenson waited on us and she was wonderful. I am 5 months pregnant and wanted something fun and special to drink since I couldn't celebrate with alcohol. She had the bar make something that was very very tasty and exactly what I was looking for in a non-alcoholic drink. The food was awesome and she gave us her recommendations. I had the Veal Meatloaf and my Husband had the Snapper. Both were delicious, as were the salads and Lobster Bisque. My only suggestion would be to make the Lobster Bisque a little less salty and a bit creamier/thicker but it was still very good. It was a wonderful Anniversary dinner.

    Nice place but for the money I wish the food selections were more diverse. The staff was friendly if not a little pretentious acting. The food was good not spectacular however my wife found a small piece of the stick butter's wrapper in her mashed potatoes. They were apologetic, replaced her potatoes and gave us a $10 gift certificate but that can of slip up makes you wonder about quality control in the kitchen. I don't go to "nice" places often but this is one we will not rush back to anytime soon.

    I brought my mum to Tucci's for after dinner dessert. We arrived quite late and the last to be served for the evening. Our waitress was terrible. After our food arrived she disappeared. Once finished we waited for at least 15 minutes before we sought out the bartender to see about getting our cheque. Once the waitress returned she said, "I thought you were still eating, that's why I didn't bring you out your cheque." My mum mentioned that we hadn't seen her since we received our food and she began arguing with us. If it wasn't for the manager, and his AMAZING service we would probably not ever return again. He assured us that our experience was not representative of the typical service they are known for. I would definitely return!

    We happened upon Tucci's during a visit to Dublin and could not believe that after all these years we had not been there yet! It will, from now on, be our go to place when visiting Columbus and surrounding areas. Everything about this place is gorgeous: the ambiance, the service, the wine list, the food. The mac & cheese with pork belly appetizer was so over the top and decadent it was almost absurd! My husband is a steak fanatic and has been to many, MANY upscale, high-end steak houses all over the nation. He claimed his filet was one of the best he's ever had. My Chicken Marsala was so tasty and tender I didn't need my knife. The accompaniments of asparagus and fingerling potatoes were perfectly seasoned and cooked as well. Amazing place!

    Co celebrating a birthday with a friend. My lasagna wasn't very tasty, hardly any cheese and spicy sausage or sauce. Which surprised me because the server knew I didn't want anything spicy. Only ate about 1/3 of it. My friend had to send her salmon special back because it wasn't cooked enough and was cold when she got it. Server wasn't very knowledgeable and seemed to forget about us from time to time. Overall would not go back. Don't know what all the fuss is about at Tucci's

    From beginning to end it all was such a terrific evening. I've used open table before and have never been disappointed. When we arrived at the restaurant our private requested table was waiting for us. They also held it while we enjoyed cocktails at the bar. When we were ready they immediately took us to our table where we were introduced to our server. It all went beautifully ,the food was amazing and service the same. we will certainly be back soon. Thank you for a unforgettable evening.

    This restaurant was recommended to us by several friends. The ambiance was great, they had an extensive wine list and the service was good. For a restaurant to be known for their steaks, I was quite disappointed with their filet. Maybe I've been spoiled by so many great steakhouses in Las Vegas (where I lived for over 10 years) but this one did not come close to other filets I've had. The more cooked parts of the steak were dry and sort of crumbled in my mouth...I thought that was odd. I will give this restaurant another chance but I will not be ordering steak again...

    We were fortunate to have beautiful weather to sit on the patio. Out wait was just long enough to have a cocktail at the bar. A lovely merlot and a ginger highball. Curious b/c the goofball was served short. The bet salad was nicely dressed with gorgonzola and pecans, my companion enjoyed the house salad. The filet was melt in your mouth! The ahi tuna with sweet potatoes was perfectly presented and just as tasty. However I wish I would would had the filet. Next time.

    We had dinner here on a Sunday night. The outside dining looked great but we sat inside. The tables inside are very small, food was so so. Slightly under-cooked steak that tasted OK. The sides were plain and uninteresting and the desert menu was very slim with 5 very odd offerings. The wine offerings were good.
