Restaurant review: Columbus’ Pizza Cucinova excels in authenticity, diverse flavors

March 19, 2014
With so many pizza restaurants located around Ohio State’s campus, it’s hard to distinguish one place from the next. Pizza Cucinova, located at 1187 Olentangy River Road, is a new restaurant that isn’t your typical pizza joint. When I walked into the simply decorated, yet modern, eatery, chefs and team members warmly welcomed me. A giant sign caught my eye explaining the basic format and style of the restaurant. Tony Seta, a chef who helped create menus for Bonefish Grill and Carrabba’s, developed the Pizza Cucinova menu. You can choose a specialty pizza from the pre-made menu, or build your own. For healthier eaters, you can create a custom salad… Read more

After close to four years of such eating, Ethyl & Tank, the newest addition to Ohio State’s off-campus restaurant detail, has finally outdone my body. I write this review more than… Read more

Taking the place of a pet shop, Ethyl & Tank is set to be a versatile space catering to Ohio State students in its location across from the Ohio Union. “This is a space where all those aspects are well-integrated together and kind of melt and mesh perfectly,” said Ali Alshahal, one of the store’s owners. The new establishment, located at 19 13th Ave., is set… Read more
