The food was okay. The item I enjoyed best was the Braised Beef Stuffed Pepper starter. The fried goat cheese, salad, and flat iron steak were okay, but nothing that I would make a trip back for. Service was okay but nothing special. Drink glasses were empty and not refilled promptly. Seems like a very trendy type restaurant and was... More

Our reservation is ready. The atmosphere is European-modern and bustling on a Friday night. Our server, Lacy, is a real pro. The wine by-the-glass selection is good. The food is outstanding. It’s all Here as a very enjoyable and fun experience. We opted for the signature dishes our first visit. The fried goat cheese, pappardelle with braised pork, and olive... More

Visiting Atlanta for a few days, I and friends decided to go to Ecco having seen really good reviews. The food was really good. I particularly liked goat cheese and parpardelle/ I would definitely come back on my return to Atlanta.. Kubilay Cirrik

Good food here (have to try what everyone raves about: the fried goat cheese balls!), friendly and excellent service, and an eclectic and interesting menu- not many full entree choices but a variety of charcuterie/cheese plates, tapas to share, and pizzas.

This place is an airport location/international terminal, and as such, maybe they are used to travelers with different tipping, etc practices. I can live with that, but it wouldn't have hurt to point that out, after all, we are still in GA. That being said, be aware, all checks, even our little party of two had 18% service charge added...

Great place to eat good Italian mid end food in a nice setting while waiting for an international flight at the Atlanta airport. They have cheese courses, charcuterie, pasta and more. The quality is very good. The staff is helpful and friendly. A nice escape from airport fast food hell.

My husband and I had a great dining experience at Ecco. The food was interesting and delicious, for the most part. The staff was very attentive. Our appetizers of goat cheese, King crab soup and beet salad were wonderful. My Mahi dinner was very good, but my husband felt the pork chop entree had too much mustard. We would definitely... More

We had a superb meal at Ecco. We sat in the bar area and had the best possible food and service. Our waitress went out of her way to be helpful and it was a pleasure, after a month in Florida, to be able to sit for over two hours over a meal.

A group of us met for dinner and ordered some tappas plus main courses. Ambiance is midtown trendy..nice. Service great. Food very good. The food was a little expensive but at least had some lower priced entrees. But the wine list was outrageous. There were hardly any glasses less than $10 which can buy a decent bottle of wine!
