Only minutes from Nationwide Arena and Downtown Columbus, you can expect a very pleasant and relaxing meal at Basi Italia. Their full service dining experience includes a menu that changes seasonally, inspired by whatever locally grown produce is accessible. Owner-operators, the husband and wife team of Johnny Dornback, who is also the head Chef, and Trish Gentile, aim to bring food and friendship to the forefront in their restaurant and as such, they have a strong commitment to true hospitality. Some of their most popular dishes include the Smoked Salmon Bruschetta topped with avocado, horseradish, tomato and mascarpone, the Prosciutto Wrapped Scallops served with brussels sprouts, butternut squash and a maple jus, and the Braised Pork Belly served with caramelized pear, fennel, white bean and vin cotto pesto. Our recommendation is the Lobster Risotto that is served with a tomato-vodka cream, roasted pepper and parmesan on a bed of rice. If you're looking for a great italian dinner while you're in town for a Columbus Blue Jackets or Ohio State Buckeyes football game, look no further than Basi Italia!
