BRIO (meaning "lively" or "full of life") is a "polished casual" restaurant serving authentic, northern Italian cuisine. The subtitle, "Tuscan Grille" is descriptive for a menu that features oven-roasted steaks, chops, and seafood; similar to what one would find in an authentic ristorante in Tuscany. BRIO's philosophy of "to eat well, is to live well" is why they only use the finest and freshest ingredients. BRIO brings the pleasure of a Tuscan country villa to the American city.

"Brio Easton is one of my go-to spots anytime I visit Columbus. Food is excellent with service to match and the patio is tremendous when the weather warms up."

It’s more fun in the RA with lively music, a vibrant crowd, inventive cocktails and innovative Japanese fusion cuisine. Whatever you choose, it’s all served with a big side of Anything Can Happen. So bring your friends or make new ones. Either way, you’re in for a great time.

"The Tavern Kitchen & Bar is absolutely fantastic and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an excellent evening with a special someone or a group of friends. Service is absolutely top notch and the food is every bit the equal. The seafood is always super fresh and I've yet to have a dish that wasn't prepared perfectly. The tasting boards are a bit pricey but perfect when you just can't decide and worth the extra money. If you have someone you don't mind sharing with, the tasting board paired with one of the great sides is perfect and economical. If you're on the fence this is the place you should choose..."

A member of the Francesca's Restaurant Group; Davanti Enoteca is a wine bar that offers shareable plates of rustic Italian cuisine. <br /><br />After opening the first location in 2010 in Chicago’s Little Italy neighborhood, Davanti Enoteca has expanded with restaurants in Del Mar, San Diego; Little Italy, San Diego; Western Springs, Illinois; and now the newest addition the Courtyard Marriot River North in Chicago. Davanti Enoteca, an Italian wine bar, offers shareable plates of rustic Italian cuisine from pastas, pizzas, and entrees in addition to small plate items such as vasi (mini mason jars with Tuscan toast), antipasti, salads and tableside presentations. Exposed brick and refurbished wood create the ambiance of a countryside cottage in Italy.

"If you have a group this is a really nice place with great food but the tapas style menu doesn't offer much to a single diner unless you want to pay $40 for dinner."

When Tony and Kathy Pietoso opened the original Cafe Napoli in 1989, it quickly became a success. So successful, in fact, that it moved to a larger location at 7754 Forsyth Blvd. In 2003, sons Ande and Kye expanded their family restaurant by adding Bar Napoli, a swank cocktail lounge. A few years later, Napoli Reserve was added onto Bar Napoli, allowing for private event space and an additional bar and lounge for the weekends. The restaurant continued to flourish, and in 2008 Napoli2 was born.<br /><br />Café Napoli and Bar Napoli have recently undergone a facelift inside and out. Kye has taken the reigns from his father and is now the front man for the 8,000 sq ft establishment. Inside the kitchen, head chef Chip Bates was added to the team, bringing fresh ideas and innovation to the regional Italian specialties. <br /><br />Café Napoli is a must visit when in the St. Louis area, a local hot-spot for athletes and celebrities. <br />

"Nathalie's is an excellent restaurant and if you're looking for something a little different from the standard St. Louis restaurant layout then you should definitely give this place a try. Much of the food is sourced from their own farm so it's fresh and very good. If you want to know more, ask the guy with the beard in the band- he's also one of the farm foreman so you can learn all about it. Great little bar too."
