- I had an Italian Stallion which was fantastic mostly because of the dressing on it. The other person I was with had a veggy sub which was also fantastic. The Parmesan fries are great… – Jeremy J., Yelp, Upper Arlington location
- Another visit to Carsonie's, another wonderful experience! Stromboli was perfect, and the Italian fries can't be beat!! – ScottyJbowls, TripAdvisor, Westerville location
Carsonie's Stromboli & Pizza Kitchen
Dough flips through the air, releasing a cumulonimbus of flour as it lands softly in the hands of chef David Zadnik, who crafts the crucial ingredient each day with help from local ingredients and family recipes. The heritage of the eatery doesn’t just shine through in culinary formulas; the walls at both locations shimmer with old family photos from David's basement and glossy sports memorabilia. Strains of Frank Sinatra spread out smoothly behind conversations in dining rooms dappled with warm wood accents, occasionally spilling out to an outdoor patio or across the Westerville location's outdoor bocce-ball court. Guests sit down for pastas, sandwiches, and suds from Great Lakes Brewery and Peroni, often unaware that these tables held a victory dinner for pugilist Buster Douglas when he returned from defeating Mike Tyson in Japan, but before he picked up his victory dry cleaning.
