This should have been 4.5 stars. I didn't want to give 4, so it's a 5. We went to the Ecco for a late dinner after a show at the nearby Fox Theater. They have a beautiful interior and a pleasant outside seating area. Our server was wonderful. It is rare to get a server so thoroughly knowledgeable about the... More

I'll be honest... I just looked up "romantic restaurants in Atlanta" on Google and this was the second one on the list. I needed my husband to take me somewhere for my birthday and I wanted it to be in the city/midtown area. This place was absolutely perfect. The resturant is located in a little rustic building on the corner... More

Had a great experience here with a large group. Our server was attentive, but also put up with a table of jokers. We had great food, and people were happy with the plates.

Good service, great wine selection, and the goat cheese balls are amazing. The pizzas in particular are excellent and usually more than enough for one meal!

Ecco is a superb restaurant. There are very few restaurants that provide flavor sensations from the first bite to the last. At Ecco, the bread is amazing and the butter tastes as if it came directly from the farm. The proscuitto and kale croquettes were amazing in flavor. The pizzas had very thin crusts from the wood burning stove and... More

My wife and i went to Ecco while in Mid Town Atlanta this week. We ordered small plates and appetizers filling the table. Really fun time. Very different preparations with a European flair. Wine list was unfamiliar but full of different varietals from all over the globe. Lively environment and we are going back for sure.

Interesting choices. Friendly and knowledgable staff. Variety (pizza, cheeses, pastas, tapas, or entrees). Best for couples and friend groups.
