Beautiful restaurant. The drinks were amazing and the bruschetta appetizer was delicious. We had the chicken carbonara and the chicken piccata. Both were good, however the wine in the piccata sauce was a bit over powering and could has used a bit more butter.

Living in NJ I don’t frequent Italian restaurants when traveling. This one is the exception. They can hold their own with the best to be found.

I didn't know about the wine paired tasting menus offered Monday-Thursday and they were fantastic! The portions were much larger than expected for a tasting menu and I tried wines I wouldn't have ordered on my own. The butternut squash tortelloni was transcendent.

We always come here when In town for a Buckeye game. My husband loved his steak & penne a la vodka. My salmon dish was too vinegary & not what I was expecting for salmon. Our mozzarella appetizer was delicious! Our server was fantastic.

The food and service were excellent. Being from the Northeast I was skeptical about the sea scallops but they were cooked to perfection and as fresh as I get off the boat.
Highly recommend a visit.

The food was amazing. The Venetian Sunset cocktail was my favorite option on the drink menu. They serve the pasta table side with fresh cheese and pepper. They also lower the lighting as the evening progresses so the ambiance is perfect!

40th birthday dinner for my husband. He would have preferred to go somewhere else. Food was fine. Nothing I’d have to have again. The first entree I ordered I didn’t care for. The server insisted I order something else, so I obliged. It was better, but again, not something I would order again. Our server was very good.

We celebrated our 2nd year Wedding Anniversary and our server was amazing. Fantastic service, a surprise Anniversary dessert, and our favorite wine. We really couldn't have asked for a better celebration. We love Martini's but this experience really made us fall in love with it all over again

There was some miscommunication that when we were waiting on our bill, it was thought we hadn’t received our food! We had though, and were just awaiting our bill. The general manager was incredibly apologetic for the mix-up but took excellent care of us. Food, atmosphere, and service was 5 star!!! We look forward to our next visit to Martini.
