My wife and I enjoyed a nice romantic meal here! The service was simply great and the desert was heavenly (nougat ice cream). However, though the restaurant wasn't full we were sandwiched between other couples. This might be cute and hip in NYC but it felt as an intrusion in to what should have been our private space. So it was more pleasurable once the other diners had left.

this is in a cute little house in buckhead. the food was pricey, which we were ok with until we tasted it.....an hour after we ordered it. service was slow, rude and inaccurate. food was subpar at best. we nicely wanted to tell the owner and he was extremely pompous. said his food was great and didnt want to hear anything we had to say. not only will we not go back, but we plan to tell everyone we know that it would be better to go to olive garden and spend $500 for breadsticks than this place.

This self-proclaimed best italian restaurant in Atlanta is a sham. Over-seen by its shady owner, this restaurant strong-holds its customers "out the door" who complain about its policy of absolutely no "wine tasting" on bottles of wine ordered that are served by the glass. When we requested to taste a sip of a bottle of wine we were about to order (which is also served by the glass) the owner was summoned to our table to adamantly proclaim that was against its policy; we could pay for a half-glass, When we remarked how "cheap" this policy seemed for the "best Italian" restaurant in Atlanta we were shown the door in dramatic fashion by the owner who resembled a character from the Godfather-after we had placed our dinner order. Visit at your own risk. From the abundance of empty seats on a Saturday night most seem to have already gotten the message.

I love this place. The atomosphere is romantic and the food is out of this world. The owners are friendly. I have been to the North End in Boston and Little Italy in New York and not found a better italian restuarant! Imagine that in little ole Atlanta!

This is by far the best Italiam resturant in Atlanta. Not only is the food wonderful but the customer service is outstanding. Everyone there is the nicest in town. They remember their regulars and remember what wines you like to drink. This is my favorite resurant in all of Atlanta

Even with the recent expansion of the dining room and bar, this restaurant has an intimate feel. I went there shortly after returning from Italy longing for the foods I had enjoyed on my trip, and I was not disappointed. Fresh pasta and light sauces are a nice contrast to heavy Italian fare available most places. Good selection of cheeses and wines as well. There's a location in Tuscany too. Sorry I missed it. Highly recommended.
