The seasonal European menu tempts with delicious meat and cheese boards featuring a myriad of different selections, housemade pastas, authentic wood-fired pizzas and mouthwatering desserts. The restaurant also features an adventurous, nationally-recognized wine list representing both boutique and well-known European vinyards with many selections exclusive to Ecco. Featuring award-winning design including an over-sized bar, a large, open-air patio and a breathtakingly beautiful main dining room, Ecco is completely unique, yet comfortable. Whether with a large party, enjoying a romantic dinner or simply having a bite at the bar, Ecco is sure to become one of your favorite Midtown neighborhood dining spots.

“Good food but oh so busy”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

This was our first visit so we didn't know what to expect. When we made our reservations, we requested a private table for two. Upon arrival, we realized there aren't any! We were placed at the end of a run of tables along the wall (I'm never fond of this set-up). The great food and atmosphere made up for the lack of privacy though. Our waiter was superb and his suggestions helped us make some great food choices. The bar was backed up so we had to be patient when ordering drinks. I would recommend Ecco especially with a group of friends.

“just drink and dessert but good”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Friendly fast service in the new International terminal Atlanta Airport.(from other reviews I am guessing there is more than one Ecco)...Upstairs and away from the hustle and bustle...helps you relax. you feel like you are in a treehouse if you sit out on the "balcony' that overlooks the first floor. Maybe not many restaurants in airports get reviewed but this one was worth it. Great friendly staff.......

“Good, nothing over the top”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

Our server was fantastic. Our food was good but nothing to write home about. I had the rabbit prepared 2 ways. The plate came with the 2 pieces of rabbit only. No sauce or accompaniments. I ordered the beans on the side which were minty and delicicious. We also ordered a meat/cheese tray which was good and the red peppers stuffed with beef (only 2 provided and there were 3 of us). Overall the flavors were basic, no special dances of flavors in the mouth at this place.

“An Old Favorite”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

Ecco never disappoints. My boyfriend and I have enjoyed the restaurant on a couple of occasions. At the end of a busy business week, I brought a group of 8 clients to the restaurant to have a relaxing meal. We sat at the big family-style table in the middle of the restaurant. Our server was very attentive and offered wonderful suggestions. The chef even stopped by to greet everyone. I love the ambiance of the restaurant. They have a very nice wine list and great food. The entire group enjoyed the experience.
