Dined with my wife on 12/17. I ordered the appetizer special,rissotto with mushrooms. Then I ordered the salmon, medium(cooked thru and thru.) Out came a salad followed by a piece of grouper. I called over the manager who spoke to the waiter who explained that I had asked for "fish". He then told me that the waiter had just had... More

Great food. Great service. Terrible and very due host/maître d'. Due to extremely heavy traffic, every diner was late for their reservation. Instead of expressing concern and being happy that everyone arrive safely, he chastised everyone for being late. "you have impacted our reservations and are putting all of our reservations behind". Everyone, not just our group of 10, were... More

We have visited this restaurant several times when attending a conference in Atlanta each December. The food is fabulous and the service is superb. The entire staff makes you feel at home and a part of the family. We had a large group and had several different things on the menu and everyone raved about what they ate. This one... More

Beautiful atmosphere, very elegant. Our waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable. The Barolo wine was outstanding. Definitely recommend trying the Mussels. Pasta with white truffles was delicious. We will definitely be back again.

The salad was good I liked the oil/vinegar dressing, the bread and olives great, the veal was good needed a little more herbs, the tiramisu was ok.

I hadn't been to this restaurant in many years. The food was excellent and service good. Our waiter was very chatty, too much so. He took our drink orders and then disappeared for awhile probably chatting it up with another table. A few other service details were missed which is why I gave it a 4. Also we were seated... More

If it's the fall, it must be white truffle season, and we were fortunate to come upon this old school Buckhead Italian restaurant. White tablecloth class, with the patrons and wait staff to match. Oh, and the mushroom risotto with the aforementioned white truffles...the finest I've ever had.

Four of us dined here and all four meals were fantastic! Service was great and the food was just delicious. Reservations are a must here. This is my brother and sister-in-law's favorite place to eat. (It's pricey and not for someone on a budget)

We had a great dinner here while visiting our daughter who goes to Georgia Tech. An easy drive from the school and surrounding hotels. Really good italian food with alot of black truffle entrees (you can order their truffle dishes or have them shaved over any other dish you order). Also they have an interesting and fairly deep wine list.... More

Looks like you are headed into a basement - but once you get to the front of the restaurant it is quite nice and great for a romantic evening. Friendly staff. Weather permitting - the patio is the place to be; private, surrounded by nice plantings and vegetation, and only a few tables.
