I really enjoy this restaurant, having been there 4 times already. The menu is not extensive, but every dish is tasty and authentic Italian. 1/2 portions of pasta are also available if you are dining late or just not so hungry. They offer an extensive list of wines by the glass. Definitely worth a try!

Gotta love a Cameron Mitchell establishment...they will cook anything to order, impeccable service (Bobby was amazing), good wine, consistently good food. They have some specialty cocktails that are some of my faves. Have tried to re-create at home without success...so they kindly gave me the recipe. The only drawback to this location when there are other events going on: Parking.

Our"team" restaurant was packed. The places nearby had over an hour wait. Checked on open table and found Martini's nearby and took a chance. So glad we did. Wonderful food, Taylor was great. Caesar salad was one of the best I have had; lamb papardelle?sp. was so great and filling! Glad our place was packed and we ended up here.

Food was creative and attractively presented. However, it was much too salty for my taste. Even the salad seemed to have a a salty dressing on it. Server was very candid and helpful with our menu decisions but hovered over us waiting to whisk our plates away the second it looked like we were finished.

Near perfection from start to finish. I have never been to Columbus. Loved the website and menu offerings. Planned a business meal. Took bartenders recommendation on her favorite cocktail and our primary waitstaff (also a woman) was personable, professional and efficient. Turned out to be a happening spot and business got done. Definitely worth it. ✔️

Our reservation was for a Thursday at 5pm. My wife and I arrived a few minutes early and were seated immediately. Our drinks were brought to us promptly and our waitstaff was knowledgeable, fun and spot-on with her recommendations. The linguini with clams was light and delicious. Added chicken to the pennette alla vodka-just wonderful. To cap off the meal and to celebrate a birthday, we shared the tiramisu. I have not had better. ( Tiramisu is my favorite dessert.) The noise level rose as it got later but this was extremely forgivable as the restaurant was full of NCAA Women's Final Four fans. I highly recommend Martini for "date night", drinks with friends or a family gathering.

Went basic with chicken parm and it was less than desirable. The chicken breast was pounded out to oblivion and was chewy and rubbery. Only my 2nd time here so hopefully it was just an off night. I will say the woodford and jameson martinis were quite awesome although painfully overpriced as you would expect.
