Great Italian Restaurants in Columbus

Who’s your favorite Italian restaurant? I have a few favorites but last night I was happy to find one that goes to the top of my short list. Try Lola Baci in Gahanna. Upon arriving we were warmly greated by Lola. My husband and I both had the specials. I had the mushroom risotto w/ very tender perfectly cooked filets. My Husband had their ravioli of the day; Lobster ravioli. Both entrees where great! We do not usually order dessert but since they make their own tiramisu it seemed like the right thing to do. It did not disappoint. After dinner Lola insisted we go into the kitchen to meet the chefs. My husband asked if they ever have linguine and clam sauce on the menu (one of his all time favorites) and the chef said that next time we plan to come to call ahead and he would put it on the menu for the night. ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s accommodation. The service was excellent as well. And we did not have to beg for bread, they brought it out to us once we were seated. I will definitely go back there,October 18, 2009 7:38 pm at 7:38 pm #310039
Butch’s on Gender in Canal Winchester is always worth the short trip outside the outer belt. Scali’s on 256 is worth a visit as well.

Normally I would be there with you, but I’ve seen similar glowing first-time reviews of this place. I’ll go sometime this week full of snark and then we’ll see how good it is! j/kOctober 18, 2009 9:23 pm at 9:23 pm #310045
I doubt that’s Lola. Certainly a friend of the restaurant, but I’ve been there and it is damn good. It is tiny and there’s no liquor license, but the food has been great every time I’ve been there.October 18, 2009 11:05 pm at 11:05 pm #310046
Pastaria in the North Market is quite good (and very affordable)October 26, 2009 12:42 pm at 12:42 pm #310047
No, I am not Lola. I just had a great meal there and wanted to share!
And I’m not a friend of Lola’s either. The resturant was recommended and we tried it.October 26, 2009 12:44 pm at 12:44 pm #310048

I have to agree, Sacli’s is also my favotite.

There’s this place called “The Spaghetti Warehouse” …
Just kidding, but my Dad LOVES the place.
