🍕 A trail of Columbus-style pizza
👋 Alissa here. Longtime readers may recall I was once a bit skeptical of Columbus-style pizza, but I will admit it's growing on me.
- A new guide should help newbies like me become aficiona-doughs.
Slicing the news: Experience Columbus recently debuted a Columbus-style Pizza Trail featuring 13 different restaurants specializing in our city's signature thin-crust pizza with edge-to-edge toppings.
How it works: Check in digitally at four spots to snag a free T-shirt!
- I started at TAT Ristorante di Famiglia on the East Side. The fourth-generation family-owned business opened in 1929, making it the city's oldest Italian restaurant.
The intrigue: In 1934, they served the first pizza in Columbus.
What I ate: The TAT special, appropriately piled with pepperoni, mushroom, sausage, white onion and banana peppers (large for $21.95).
- Like any authentic Columbus-style pizza, the crust crunched.
- … that means it's good, right? (I think I'm getting the hang of this!)
Vibe check: The intricate wallpaper and plush purple booths make the historic restaurant feel like visiting grandma's house — and I mean that in the best way.
- The staff was kind and welcoming. And you'll never leave hungry.
If you go: 11am-8pm Wednesday-Friday and 3-8pm Saturday-Sunday. 1210 S. James Road.
