Great food

Excellent Italian food and a great wine selection. We had three of the pasta dishes and they were absolutely delicious. The two sides we ordered of beets with pistachios and leeks were wonderful complements to our main dishes. The service was attentive. It was a memorable evening

Made the trip from Roswell to celebrate my birthday with my family. Due to a busy MLK holiday celebrated by all apparently, our reservations were delayed by 45 minutes in order to acquire a decent table. The management and staff were amazing! They catered to our every need and desire while waiting, making the wait time a delightful experience. Ended... More

We went for Friday brunch and my pasta was delicious! It was not too heavy. It was mainly cheese and pepper, but it was very flavorful. The chicken biscuit was also great but it isn't the standard recipe since it had gravy on it. The atmosphere is pretty and welcoming but the tables are very close together. The lady next... More

we've eaten at this restaurant a number of times. none as good as the first though. we've taken friends and had some great experiences. we've also had some not so good experiences and not so yummy food. i'm wondering if the chef has changed because on our first visit, the chef came to our table and explained the "local" food...

No. 246 is a trendy dinner spot in "downtown" Decatur. On a Saturday it was humming, noisy and fun but the food was only average. Fritto Misto was excellent with friend onions and peppers included in the mix. A house Chop salad was also well prepared. All of the pasta is made in the restaurant and did not disappoint. Unfortunately,... More

Call me old but when the waitress needs to explain the menu to me the place isn't for me. The salad that we ordered state if it had some salami. A kids lunchable had more salami than that salad had. Also had to cut the lettuce leaves smaller to get them in my mouth. The wife and I split a... More

Other than the fact that parking is rather problematic in the area, we found No. 246 to be an excellent choice for dinner. The friendly and competent waiter had excellent and detailed descriptions of the menu items. We shared a very good Caesar for starters. My wife had a wonderfully seared trout and I had a very tasty bowl of... More
