An excellent experience for NYE. Service was excellent, and the food is as well. This was a price fix meal, and well worth it. Scallops were excellent, the deserts superb, and the Homemade pastas can’t be beat. We’ll be back for sure!

This is a sophisticated and expensive restaurant which is, without a doubt, one of the best food experiences in Sandy Springs. For lack of a better description, Il Giallo would be at home in Buckhead or Midtown. The menu and wine list are top notch....More
