I’m looking for an inexpensive place for a decent Italian meal. I feel like I must have overlooked some place because I cannot seem to find this anywhere in Columbus! Any suggestions?August 3, 2009 1:49 am at 1:49 am #292101
Arlington Pizza & Meatballs makes some mean meatballs. You can get a meatball sub for $4-6. Cafe Bella on High might be an option for more variety and a more sit-down kind of place.August 3, 2009 2:19 am at 2:19 am #292102
Meatball Monday at Basi Italia is a tough deal to beat.August 3, 2009 2:30 am at 2:30 am #292103
Cafe del Mondo used to be doing Thursday night dinners!
Regardless, their lunch is usually superb!August 3, 2009 2:32 am at 2:32 am #292104

Basi’s lunch is a spectacular deal. Everything is $6 or $9.August 3, 2009 3:19 am at 3:19 am #292105
It looks like Arlington Pizza& Meatballs may have closed. Tommy’s on Lane Avenue & maybe Tony’s on South High might be OK…??August 3, 2009 3:40 am at 3:40 am #292106

+1 on the Carfagna’s Kitchen recommendation, especially if you get either Meat Heaven or the Chicken Marsala (sub marsala sauce for marinara or alfredo on the pasta).
Wouldn’t recommend their sandwiches or pizzas, though, and the rest of the pastas can be hit or miss, especially the filled pastas.August 3, 2009 11:09 am at 11:09 am #292109
TATs early bird?
Butch’s on Gender, if you are up for the small drive, isn’t bad price wise for the lunch menu. Food is awesome!August 3, 2009 1:07 pm at 1:07 pm #292110August 3, 2009 1:27 pm at 1:27 pm #292111
CMH Gourmand has been raving about this place in Gahanna. I’m not sure about prices but it sounds really good.
There is a Columbus Foodcast about TAT Ristorante

Never tried the brunch which does look great. Lunch and dinner there have never failed me.August 3, 2009 1:48 pm at 1:48 pm #292114
Scali’s in Reynoldsburg has a few entrees around $11-12. Family owned, and there is a Mama Scali.
