Waiter (Gary) was very attentive and paid special attention to my onion allergy.
The food was served timely. It was very relaxing and enjoyable.

The food was very good. Service was good as well. It’s noisy, so if you’re looking for quiet, I would suggest you look elsewhere.

I ate there ten days previous and got the veal chop. Absolutely loved it and went back for it again. This veal chop had so much fat through it I didn't get much meat at all. Disappointed in that one.

The service was great. My wife was cold even though it was the first warm day in Columbus. Her veal was mushy. My daughters clams and noodles needed salt but there was none on the table. My chicken parm was average. For a not crowded Sunday evening, the noise level was high. All in all, the meal was only average.

Service was spotty. Soft drinks and water came immediately but it took a while to order wine and actually have it poured (1st bottle was sold out). By that time appetisers arrived. The arancini were delicious - cooked perfectly moist inside and crunchy outside; however tomato sauce was more like tomato paste. Tuna tartar was blend and lacked seasoning. Bread arrived at the table after the appetisers (seems like they forgot). They finally took our order for mains - all were delicious (esp osso buco).

This was the first time at your establishment and I must say, "It was absolutely amazing!!!" The food was so delicious, and our waitress was so personable, and made us feel very comfortable. I loved the decor of the restaurant, and it has such a comfortable atmosphere. I would definitely recommend your restaurant to many of my friends, and we will definitely be returning.

This was my birthday dinner. I could have chose any other nice restaurant but chose this one. The waiter forgot to put in our order so our order was pushed to the back of the line. We were on a time crunch and we going to be late for an event for this. When the manager came to the table, she offered no apology and only offered to take the drinks off of our tab. We waited for our food for an additional 20 minutes, making us late for our event. We told the manager that this was not acceptable to only reduce our order by drinks so she gave us 50% off the meal. Once we received our checks, the calculations and orders were completely wrong, pushing our time even further back. WILL NOT RETURN TO THIS RESTAURANT.

The food was exceptional. Wine choices were very good. We were celebrating a special occasion and the wait staff was very responsive and conscientious about adding to the quality of our experience by taking pictures, pouring our champagne and wine. It was a most lovely evening. We were visiting from out of town but I would definitely advise others to visit this restaurant. High noise levels were the only minor glitch on our fine evening.

Great food, central location, valet parking and friendly and efficient staff. Good wines and desserts too. We visited on a Friday evening and received great service, but the noise level was too high. The music was so loud that people got louder and louder. However, we will be back because of the quality of the food and service.

The food was fresh and flavorful. The dipping sauce for the bread was out of this world. I highly recommend the fresh mozzarella appetizer--its flavors combine for a perfect experience.

Very loud and very busy; server couldn't hear us and we couldn't hear him. Food was fine. My special request for one of the dishes was honored very diplomatically (no 'we don't do substitutions' bull). I made the reservation here because the restaurant was listed in several of Columbus' top 10 restaurant lists, but I don't think it is a top 10. We came early to enjoy happy hour--great deals. Wine was half price. Overall, my impression was that the staff genuinely want you to enjoy your meal but there are too many distractions to actually concentrate on the food. Valet very convenient as well.

My boyfriend and I spent our anniversary here, and it was AMAZING! We had the tenderloin and the chicken carbonara, and both were absolutely perfect. For dessert we had the tiramisu and the marscapone cheesecake. Cheesecake was sweet, but not too overwhelming. Tiramisu had a lot of espresso flavor, so if you are a coffee-lover! Our server has so nice and we just had such a lovely dinner!

Martinis is our favorite restaurant. The Elderfloweer Pear cocktail is outstanding. The food is very good. The only downside is the noise level: it is almost imposible to hear your party at the restaurant.
