This Iconic Columbus Restaurant Will Reopen In A New Space Later This Year, Trolley Car Included

Spaghetti Warehouse has announced the opening of a new location in downtown Columbus.

Located next to Columbus Commons, at 150 S. High St., the new space comes after a year-long hiatus following the roof collapse at its longtime site at 1978 W. Broad St.

The new location will have a smaller environmental impact and provide a dining experience that will appeal to both new customers and returning multigenerational families who have fond memories of the former location.

“For decades, Spaghetti Warehouse has been loved by locals and visitors alike,” said Ron Reynolds, president of Spaghetti Warehouse. “Our new location is right in the heart of downtown and less than a mile away from our original location offering new and long-time Spaghetti Warehouse guests a convenient location to enjoy delicious Italian food and celebrate traditions.”

According to Reynolds, the pandemic and the necessary renovations at the prior location gave the business a wonderful opportunity to modernize.

Spaghetti Warehouse fans will still be able to order a number of the restaurant’s signature dishes, including 15-layer lasagna, spaghetti and meatballs, chicken parmesan, sourdough bread, and Italian wedding soup. Spaghetti Warehouse at the Commons will also provide quick service items, grab-and-go options, and other menu modifications to facilitate delivery and takeout.

The restaurant worked with two key downtown stakeholder groups to secure the new location, the Columbus Downtown Development Corporation (CDDC) and Bob Weiler and Pat Kelley.

“CDDC is ecstatic that the iconic Spaghetti Warehouse continued to invest in our vision for downtown, and our collective aim to increase the number of family style, value driven restaurants surrounding the local businesses and Columbus Commons area,” stated Matt Lutz, CDDC’s chief development officer.

The new location is expected to open this fall (2023) and returning customers will find more than just their favorite menu items. The iconic trolley car from the original location will be moving to the new space.

“The restaurant’s future looks bright, as it is within walking distance of several theaters, museums, and other attractions, and will have seating for approximately 200 people,” said Reynolds.
