A word from Vittoria
Our Vision - to provide our guests with the most authentic Italian dining experience in central Ohio. We have taken beautiful European design and combined it with a traditional authentic and contemporary Italian menu. We combine old world flavors with modern influence to serve wonderful Italian Cuisine.


Dining is an experience which combines the taste and flavor of the food, the service, the ambiance, the company and the wines we offer. We have given much thought to the details of the dining experience. The selection of our food products and wines, the level of service we expect from staff, the place settings and lighting, the murals on the walls, the beautiful faux ceiling and hardwood floors all represent the choices we have made in creating an environment which our guests will find comfortable and personal.

    I ordered a Belini and I got a very sweet made from a mix Belini so I left it after my first sip. The food was pretty good. Polenta with spinach appetizer was delicious.

    This restaurant could not be more lovely inside. It has a warm and old-world feel to it. They had a musician in the corner of the restaurant playing live music while we had dinner (he played a flute, clarinet and a saxophone in the 2 hours we were there). The food was excellent, as was the service. My favorite dish is chicken piccata and they had the BEST I've ever had, hands down. I would highly recommend it (and have already) to anyone who wants delicious authentic Italian food in a beautiful atmosphere!

    A friend of mine recommended Vittoria to me a couple of years ago. Being Of Italian descent, I was a bit skeptical and would rather make pasta at home than eat at an Italian restaurant. To my surprise, it was outstanding. My family and I have eaten dinner there many times, had Mother's Day brunch, and had my 50th Birthday dinner party there. The food is always right on target. Hands-down the best bread in Columbus! Would definitely recommend Vittoria. You will not be disappointed.

    Dined on 8/23/2014
    We had patio reservations and were actually seated early. The indoor seating area would have been too loud for my elderly mother to hear dinner conversation but the patio was perfect. The initial service was a bit slow but once orders were placed moved at an appropriate speed. The patio is lovely except we happened to be seated under an outdoor light which was too bright for 1/2 the table. Tables that were not under the direct outdoor lights would not be affected. Overall 4 out of 5 stars--a very enjoyable evening.

    We have only been to Vittoria's for dinner, so can't rate other options. It's a wonderful restaurant. The only fault I can say is that it was too cold and there was a draft blowing on me all thru dinner. I could have enjoyed it more without the draft, but that won't stop me from coming again and certainly would recommend it to my friends.

    We dined at Vittoria's at the suggestion of friends. We had never been there. Our experience started when we walked in the door. The decor is beautiful and welcoming. We sat at the bar first as we arrived early. Sangria was not on the menu but the bartender gladly whipped me up one. It was delicious! Once seated we were greeted by an excellent waiter who was professional and attentive. The bread was delicious. I had the scallops with risotto. Excellent! But I must say I was jealous of my husbands choice in entree. He chose the lasagna-yum! Huge portion too. We look forward to our next visit.

    This was my first time dining here. I had been wanting to try it for years. I'm just sad I didn't make it years ago. Everything was wonderful. So warm and inviting, yet impressive. I felt very fancy with a homey feel. Servers were friendly and attentive. The food was amazing! I can't wait to dine there again.

    We have been to Vittoria several times, but the food just wasn't up to par Friday night. Calamari, which is usually some of the best you can get anywhere, was overcooked and rubbery. Chicken in the marsala was tough. I had the smoked salmon ravioli special which was not good at all. The "smoke" was overwhelming and tasted artificial, like liquid smoke instead of real smoked salmon. I went home with my mouth tasting like I'd licked an ashtray. Part of that is my fault because our server did say the smoke was overpowering. The whole meal just wasn't quite as good as we usually expect.

    My Dad, husband and I had dinner at Vittoria on Saturday night. We all ordered the filet and salads. The steaks were cooked perfect and the salads were excellent. We've dined here several times in the past since this has always been my dads favorite restaurant in the Powell area. For a while, the food was not consistent so my husband and I had stopped going. We read that Vittorio from Eddie Merlot's had started managing the restaurant and figured it had to be good again. He does an excellent job! His vibrant personality, knowledge of the restaurant business and high standards for excellence will definitely be a huge asset for Vittoria. We will definitely be returning on a regular basis!

    We went to Vittoria to see how a friend was doing with his new restaurant. He did not disappoint. The staff was fantastic and the food, incredible. Our server, Ted, had excellent recommendations and was very attentive. The entire staff made our experience wonderful. Based on Ted's recommendations my wife had the baked chicken cannelloni with alfredo and marinara sauce and I had the sea scallops. Both dishes were outstanding. We will definitely be back.

Just wish there was some sort of dress code. Men should remove hats. Men in shorts and tees in the dining room just is low class. The women were nicely dressed. Too bad the men did not think enough of their dates to dress better.

    My wife and I were pleased with our first visit to Vittoria. The food selections were varied and appealing and we were happy with our choices. The wine-by-glass offerings were ample and suitable for the food on the menu. The service was good and genuinely friendly. Although the dining room is large, we did feel a sense of intimacy. Our only complaint was with the excessive noise level which made conversation challenging at times. We look forward to our next visit and opportunity to try other menu selections.
