Midwest Living Review
From pizza pie to apple pie, there's no lack of creativity at this upscale pizzeria in Columbus' historic German Village. Open since 2011, Harvest Pizzeria has been earning well-deserved raves for its use of locally sourced farm-fresh ingredients. Pizza choices include the Spicy Yuma featuring chipotle-spiked tomato sauce, chorizo, gouda cheese, roasted red peppers, corn and jalapenos ($14) and the Almond Pesto pizza topped with fresh mozzarella, kale and artichokes ($12). A gas/wood hybrid oven cooks the 11-inch pies to a perfect crispness.
Small plates like roasted red pepper hummus ($5) and Hudson Valley foie gras with Riesling-poached pear preserves ($14) shine. Or try a fresh salad such as the arugula ($9, half portion for $4.50) that pairs peppery greens with fresh ricotta, Ohio bacon, roasted red onion and toasted pumpkin seeds. And save room for a changing selection of freshly baked pies ($8 a la mode). Wine by the glass or bottle is available, as are local beers and creative cocktails.
Housed in a charming German Village-style cottage, the 10-table restaurant also has a brick-paved patio in front for al fresco dining. A recent expansion into the cottage next door added bar, dining and patio space to alleviate the often two-hour wait for a table on the weekends.
