Martini Modern Italian tops Ohio restaurant list
👋 Alissa here, sharing some well-deserved recognition for one of my favorite local restaurants.
Dining the news: National news site 24/7 Tempo recently named Martini Modern Italian Ohio's best Italian restaurant, after compiling rankings from several websites in every state.
Context: Martini is one of Cameron Mitchell Restaurants' two Italian spots in the Short North.
- It has been around longer, dating back to the mid-'90s — but compared to Marcella's and its giant veal meatballs, this upscale classic seems to fly more under the radar these days.
What I ate: The pennette alla vodka in a tomato and vodka cream sauce ($27) is my go-to dish, with grilled chicken added.
- It offers a sweet, yet acidic flavor and well-sized portions.
- The chicken parmesan ($30) and fettuccine and clams ($32) are also popular dishes.
Yes, but: Save room for dessert. The tiramisu ($11), served with a dab of vanilla ice cream, is encased in a picturesque tea cup made of hardened chocolate.
If you go: 4-10pm Monday-Saturday and 4-9pm Sunday. 445 N. High St.
