    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?

    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.

    Meatball Monday at Basi Italia is a tough deal to beat.

    Cafe del Mondo used to be doing Thursday night dinners!
    Regardless, their lunch is usually superb!

    Basi’s lunch is a spectacular deal. Everything is $6 or $9.

    It looks like Arlington Pizza& Meatballs may have closed. Tommy’s on Lane Avenue & maybe Tony’s on South High might be OK…??

    +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.

    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!

    CMH Gourmand has been raving about this place in Gahanna. I’m not sure about prices but it sounds really good.

    Have you been there for brunch? Looks impressive.

    Never tried the brunch which does look great. Lunch and dinner there have never failed me.

    Scali’s in Reynoldsburg has a few entrees around $11-12. Family owned, and there is a Mama Scali.
