This restaurant was highly recommended by Trip Advisor users. The food was good and service was fine, but this restaurant was made for noise. Loud music, crowded tables close to each other, and a wait-staff that had to navigate ("Sorry," "Excuse me," "Oops") through very narrow aisles, so patrons had to shout to be heard.

Warm, friendly, casual atmosphere. Our beet salad appetizer was delicious. The pasta special entree was wonderful as was the duck breast. Both perfectly prepared to our personal requests. All around a very nice meal.

Everything from the location, to the ambiance, to the service and the food was amazing. The server was very knowledgeable, recommending different dishes and wines to go with them. I had the veal with the fingerling potatoes and it was just divine. The dessert was great. And the Beet Salad was so tasty. I'll definitely come back here when in... More

After a bad experience elsewhere, we came here for drinks and dessert. Our waitress, Jennifer, was so welcoming, and the atmosphere was lively and warm. We ordered a nice bottle of wine and had a delicious dessert. The chocolate cake with sea salt was amazing! We should have come here for dinner, and we will be back. Thanks again to... More

What great food and service. The calamari was the best. My husband had the duck, loved it!!! What a fine. Small little restaurant like being in Italy. Jon the manager was wonderful and what a wonderful greeting from the hostess. The address on travel advisors is not correct. This restaurant is not near the airport the correct address is 992...

Wild boar ravioli....I don't know what else I can say, except the service was as good as the food! Jennifer is an excellent server and knows anything about the menu you can ask. I don't know if I could ever eat at another Italian restaurant in Atlanta again. In fact, I won't.

Not only a great neighborhood restaurant, but also a great Italian restaurant. Definitely worth a try when you are in Atlanta. Close to downtown. If you are by yourself, its great to sit at the bar with either Kris or Ali. They are the best.

We were in a party of four for a business dinning in Atlanta. We usually go to Fogo the chao but like to try something different. After the critics and reviewing the menu, we decided to go there. My goodness, what an accurate decision! Restaurant seems small but has a big terrace too, closed on winter. Ambience, illumination and everything... More

Was downtown for a professional meeting. A local suggested this place and it was FANTASTIC. Great high energy atmosphere but a VERY small dining room can be a bit crowded feeling. They do take reservations. Relatively small street with several other restaurants nearby so parking can be a challenge. Fortunately, there is a joint valet service for 3-4 of the... More
