Husband and I come for lunch every couple months. We've never had poor food or service. Good sandwiches and salads. At thanksgiving my dad was visiting so we brought him here for dinner, someplace different for him. Although very crowded and noisy he did enjoy himself and liked his food. They had live music which was fun to listen to.... More

Easy place to relax and enjoy eating pizza, Stromboli and pasta. Good atmosphere for table talk. Wait staff are focused on getting good food to you-no frills or pretense. Family owned and operated. Very laid back. Shopping center location so it is an easy place to meet up. Try it if you haven't.

We pulled in for dinner after Ohio State’s (#2) exciting 30-27 victory over the University of *ichigan (#3) in double overtimes! Quite possibly the best game ever in that long rivalry! Carsonie’s is close to OSU and is not a big place when the outdoor patio is closed but we got a table with no waiting. Our waitress, Rian, was... More

My first visit was for lunch today. I was looking forward to trying the stromboli, but the waitress warned that since they are made fresh, it would be at least 25 minutes. I'm glad she warned me since I had to go back to work. The Italian sausage sub I had was pretty tasty. The Italian fries appetizer was amazingly... More

The Stromboli is made to order. That means, LIKE IT SAYS ON THE MENU, it'll take a half hour or so to make. It's fresh! I don't pick Italian restaurants but I'll make an exception when our family wants Carsonie's! As I've said the Stromboli is killer, but this time I got the antipasti platter and Italian wedding soup. Both... More

We visited Carsonie's in Upper Arlington for lunch. Carsonie's is friendly and casual with a bar in the center and nostalgic decor. It's certainly more than just a pizza place, but not a white-tablecloth place either. Our service was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. We were meeting family members we don't see often and they left us alone to... More

I could eat this Stromboli every day for weeks and never get tired of it. Just the right mix of filling and bread. Staff is super friendly and doing a take out order was very easy.

They used to have a balloon artist come on Mondays for dinner. She was amazing and made almost anything a child can think of to request. Check before going to see if they still provide this. The food is really good too! We try to visit whenever we are in Columbus.

My family also enjoys our meals at Carsonie's. We typically head here for lunch in the summer or when school is out because its about 20 minutes away. The chefs make excellent stromboli, pizzas and pastas. The salads are nothing fancy, but hit the spotif you want one. Our service is always good too. The patio is a treat in... More

Best Strombolis in Columbus. They do take 20 minutes to make, but that's nothing once you taste them!
