Looking for a new happy hour to try out in Columbus? Our current favorite is Forno Kitchen + Bar! It’s the perfect place for both food and drinks with their wide selection. From arancini balls (fried risotto balls) to perfectly tender calamari, there’s always something new to try at Forno. It wouldn’t be called Forno (translation: oven in Italian) if they didn’t have fresh pizzas cooked in a stone-fired oven at 750 degrees! There’s over 10 pizza selections to choose from, which are all part of their happy hour.
Their happy hour includes 1/2 price discounts on: draft beers, house cocktails, wine by the glass, all appetizers, and pizzas!
After our first visit, we have already been back several times. Our favorite cocktail? Definitely the Kiwi Mules. I also love the Cucumber-Jalapeño Margarita which is both refreshing yet toasty with the japaleño kick.
If I had to pick my absolute favorite item on the menu, it would be the parmesan topped calamari. It comes with 2 delicious dipping sauces: lemon aioli and an imported San Marzano tomato sauce. This appetizer is seasoned to a perfect crisp in each bite.
Other great items to try are the tacos! Both ahi tuna and pork belly tacos come in a crispy seasoned wonton shell – each order comes with 4 tacos.
Happy hour runs on weekdays (Monday – Friday) from 4pm-6pm.
