I've been trying to find an Italian restaurant that serves good Bolognese since one of my faves, Tré Bicchieri in Columbus, Indiana, changed its recipe. Ambrosia's sauce was bland and dry with a few chunks of tomatoes here and there. There wasn't very much flavor...More

This is not the best Italian in the city, but I can't quibble with value for the money. My spaghetti with meatballs was quite good at $16. Sauce was good and pasta was perfect al dente. My wife's dish, Medici, was a nice collection of...More
