Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu as well as recommending the perfect wines for our dinners. This is not your typical Italian... More

I was in Atlanta over the past weekend on business and met friends who live in Marietta for dinner. They both suggested that we dine here and wow - the meal was delicious. I had the Caesar Salad and the Risotto with pulled pork. The service was spot on and she was delightful with a great personality. Make sure you... More

Went here for my daughter's 17th birthday after seeing wicked,service is exceptional and so is the food.This is a very popular restaurant and I can see why the only thing that I would change is the resturant size it is very tight with seating being at a premium go with at least 5 so you can get a larger table....

This is a great spot for a first date. I would make a reservation if I were you. Really quaint and intimate. The main dish I got was not the best but the wonderful calamari and wine.

Had a reservation and glad we did! We were seated at a sweet window table and our server arrived promptly with a smile on her face and ready to take our drink order. Pasta specials for the evening were all sounding wonderful and made it hard to choose. Beet and arugula salad was one of the best I have ever... More

Our friends in Atlanta go here a lot and I can see why. The menu is extensive and the food is very good. A nice wine list and the wait staff is professional and knowledgeable. I will be going back when in Atlanta.
