Goat cheese balls, oh my!

I turned my back and my friend are a goat cheese ball off my plate! Yes, that's how good they are! The cheese oozes out and even a co-worker who doesn't like goat cheese liked them. My tilapia was good, the charcuterie excellent and service very good

I had reservations for Valentines Day and I had a wonderful time. Everyone is very very nice, from the valet to the hostess, my waitress and even the person who delivered the food. The main entrees didn't really appeal to my boyfriend and I so we chose to order 4-5 mini plates and they were to die for. The fried... More

Due to traffic, we had a limited amount of time to enjoy our dinner at Ecco. Our waiter did a fantastic job moving our dinner along quickly, allowing us enough time to enjoy it and still make the show. We tried the grilled octopus for an appetizer, then split a pizza - fantastic. Great wine list, but even better pointers... More

Elegant but unpretentious atmosphere, great wine selection, fresh ingredients from local farms (as well as herbs and vegetables grown on the rooftop garden), friendly and knowledgeable staff, and a fantastic menu that changes from time to time. Favorite items include the incredible bread (made fresh daily), wood-fired pizza, fried goat cheese with black pepper and honey, and the Pollock a... More

This is our "go to" restaurant when we have a group of friends or guests we are entertaining in Atlanta. The food is always excellent (especially the charcuterie, fried goat cheese, and chile pappardelle pork). The service always impresses- great recommendations as well as excellent food/wine pairing advice. The bar is impressive, creative and consistant (which can be hard to... More

Lively bar with great small plates. Try the fried goat cheese appetizer. Had the Pappardelle with pork for a main which was excellent. The aged rib eye comes highly recommended but is pricey at $45.

Great Service. Great food. Had the Paccheri with royal red shrimp, cauliflower, almond puree and tarragon. Was delightful, a cacophony of tastes!

Charcuterie platter, cheeses and olives were paired with a rich, red wine to make an unforgettable experience. Please visit Ecco and enjoy a sophisticated evening and experience.

We went here a few times and just for the fried Goat cheese. The rest of the menu is OK, they have a pulled pork pasta dish that's really good, but that's about it. Good wine menu and service too.

We were traveling and had to depart from terminal F for the first time. We were stunned when we saw Ecco. The décor is warm and welcoming. The service is top notch. They have a place for you to hand your jacket should you need. The menu was off the chart! We could have been in downtown Atlanta for all... More
