Every year when a small group of out-of-town friends come to visit we have our get-together dinner at Martini's. It never disappoints. As stated in another comment, it is noisey, but the food and service make it great. Our server, Yonetta, was outstanding. When I couldn't decide between two pasta dishes, she offered to serve a half portion of each.... More

Had a really good but slightly expensive business dinner at this restaurants. The place was packed and we had a high top in the front, close to the bar. The restaurant was very noisy, almost too loud to speak. The food was really good, the portions had the right size, the desert was a creative interpretation of tiramisu, and there... More

Martini is an excellent place for fine dining without feeling formal. I would feel no more out of place in jeans than in a suit, but the quality of the food is up there with the best of them. The servers are friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Our water glasses never got empty, but they also weren't refilling them... More

The best lasagna I have eaten in a restaurant in long time. I love the chandeliers!! Bad hostesses. Decent waitress. I do not see it for a romantic place. It is a little annoying having people from conventions in a very very casual dressing. Just saying.

We agreed this restaurant is awesome. Enjoyed the wine and delicious 2 plate dinner the way that the Italians do. Service was excellent and personable and informative especially since this was our first time. I highly recommend that you go especially on a special night.

Mantini's is one of the better restaurants in the downtown area and virtually across the street from our convention center. Great bar area, good service and wonderful food. Prices are fair for everything you get. Valet parking is available since street parking is limited. Busy after work spot for cocktails and appetizers. Also close to Arena district.

We stopped in for dinner during our business show and they were a little overwhelmed by a full restaurant. The food was excellent however it took forever for it to arrive and could barely order a drink. The Arancini app was one of the best ever and the lasagna portion was huge and delicious. The scallops were good however only... More

We booked this restaurant one week ahead through Open Table to celebrate our son's 18th birthday (which was noted in our reservation and verbally confirmed with the restaurant when they called earlier in the day to confirm).

Stopped in here during a visit to Columbus for the Arnold Classic. It was one of the few places that seemed empty at lunch, but not for long! The service was amazing and the food was just as amazing, too. The panini chicken and the Martini burger were absolutely delicious. So was the arinichi. Great place - would definitely go... More
