The Market Italian Village is a neighborhood bottle shop, deli, kitchen, and cocktail bar. In addition to showcasing contemporary dishes made with ingredients from surrounding farmers and craftsmen, The Market Italian Village is also an upscale market that shelves thoughtfully-sourced products.
Serving brunch and dinner, our Executive Chef, Tyler Minnis, creates worldly menus, combining the flavors of Mediterranean countries using abundant seasonal items, picked at the peak of their quality and taste. Located in the heart of Italian Village in Columbus, The Market has become a neighborhood destination for a nice night out, a ready-made dinner in, or a showcase cut of meat and bottle of wine for a special meal at home.

Great food! However I don't think they saved a table for our reservation. Thus we had to wait upon arriving even though we had a reservation. They seemed to be overwhelmingly busy and probably could've used another waiter on staff - once we were finally seated, they then forgot to serve us and we had to ask for a waiter/menus. The food here is always fantastic and so creative, they just seemed unprepared for the crowd this particular morning. I'll let it slide because I love this place a lot and I'm glad they were busy - they deserve it! We will definitely be back!

Our daughter wanted something better than bar food for her 21st birthday, and The Market was the first place I thought of. No Menu Monday’s are the best kept secret in CBUS.

We had a wonderful time sitting on the patio for Make Your Own Charcuterie Board Night! Yummy sourdough bread and spreadable chorizo. The deconstructed strawberry cheesecake was very unique. I brought my puppy and the waitress immediately brought him a bowl. Overall amazing service and food. I will be back!

The vast majority of restaurants do nothing to dampen noise and The Market is no exception to the rule.

And I am at a loss to understand why burger bun makers can’t seem to make buns large enough to actually hold their contents, and enable it to be eaten without coming across as a complete piggie.

Beware that parking is either pay or hike...

Fix those and I give The Market 5 Stars.

From the moment we walked in, the staff’s enthusiasm for the restaurant, wine selection and food was obvious. Our meals were creative, presented very well and delicious! The wine we chose (with a recommendation from a waiter) accompanied our meal perfectly. We will be back!

As a "regular" at The Market, I can still say this is the best restaurant in Columbus. Eating there is the kind of experience we all want when going out for dinner. It's like going to someone's house and feeling right at home. Oh, and the owner of the house is also a top tier chef. What more could you ask for?

We got the peaches and cream. It was a bread based dish but the bread was hard, dry, and way to thick compared to how little toppings were put on it. Service was great but the food was not close to worth the price.

Veritas and Service Bar and Comune rightfully get loads of love for their incredible chef-work. The Market is unassuming and casual, but the product on the place deserves to sit in those categories as well. Probably wins the title of "hidden gem."

Wine and beer selection is remarkable as well.

The best place to eat in Columbus, period. Between the service, unique yet approachable food, and the wine selection (at incredibly fair prices) there is absolutely nothing to complain about.

I cannot day enough good things about this place honestly. Surprisingly some of the best pizza I’ve had in the area, and a great ambiance! I highly suggest making reservations in advance and requesting the patio... they had it reserved and set up for us when we got there! Fantastic experience :)

Real smokey in the restaurant and expected it to be slightly Italian feeling. Felt like a usual urban haunt, not unique to Italian village.

Yummicious! We went on a Monday night which is 'chefs choice' night; a different menu from a normal evening at The Market. We each had different items: a sandwich, a pasta, and a pizza. Everything was outstanding. I'm craving the cauliflower Sammy. So fresh, unusual, beautifully plated. Home run! Thanks chef Tyler, and also and Collin for the creative drinks! Oh, and the cucumber/rhubarb gazpacho. Love! The atmosphere is so laid back and homey....I feel like I'm at one of my good friends homes for a dinner. Will be back soon!
