Diner Reviews
  • "The food was very good however, the menu was limited and they were out of some things listed."

  • "A friend recommended Cucina Asellina, and it turned out to be wonderful recommendation. The food was delicious. The prices reasonable, and the service friendly and helpful. Highly recommend the perfectly prepared and generous portion of Calamari. The Caesar Salad was uniquely and attractively presented with a delicious dressing. The Saffron Strozzapreti (sausage, peccorino, rapini) and Square Spaghetti (tomato, fresh basil, buffalo mozzarella) is delicious! Tiramisu is the perfect ending to the meal."

  • "I had friends visiting Atlanta, I invite them to dinner and selected Cucina Asellina. Everything was very good, the quality of the ingredients, the wine recommended by our waitress, very charm attention, the manager came to say hi!... everything was great. When we ask for the bill we divided in 2 ( we where 4) When the 2 tickets came, the suggested amount was 18% , 20% and 22% but FROM THE TOtAL OF THE BILL... Just pay attention to the amount that you select ."

  • "Our waiter was attentive to start: refilling our water glasses, taking our orders, and explaining the menu options when we inquired. From there it was all down hill. It took 45 minutes after we placed the order for our appetizer to come out. The waiter then inquired what we'd ordered for dinner again because they'd clearly not written it down and forgotten. We asked for more of the spicy marinara for the calamari. After 10 minutes we asked a 2nd waiter to bring us the sauce. The sauce never came. Our entrees came out around the 1hr15min mark. The waiter came back to collect the calamari dishes and when we said the sauce never arrived they said that was too bad. Seriously? Great food, but I wouldn't recommend it based on the service."

  • "Cucina Asellina has gone in one direction since the original chef left a couple of years ago - downhill. Menu is now dumbed down and limited. Bar program is mediocre, although they do still have very good Italian wine choices. What cocktails we had were good but there is a small list of them, and no special amaros in a place that is supposed to be Italian? Started with a really good cheese & meat plate, bread was good, olives were okay. Recommendation is to stop here and move elsewhere for dinner or just have a pizza. Pasta was overcooked and ratio of sauce/toppings to pasta wrong - both inexcusable for an "Italian" restaurant."

  • "This is second time there and the food was wonderful (and came out hot, very important for me). Service was very good."
    Dined on 1/15/2014
  • "Food is adequate, drinks were poorly made. Too many icy bits in a shaken martini, a "twist" with more pith than lemon, a Manhattan served on the rocks when ordered up. Sausage pizza was pretty tasty, but half of it was just the crust. Arugula salad quite nice, and quite large. But the prices are way too high for the quality of food. It just seems like no one in there really cares."

  • "The place was not busy and yet they seated us by the waiter station. The food was not very impressive. They brought the bread with the food as an after thought. Overall I was not impressed specially because I picked this place to celebrate an special ocasion."

  • "We live nearby and come here frequently. Always fanatastic food and great drinks. They seem to sttuggle with proper staffing and hadone waiter for all table which let to some service challenges. Overall, great place."

  • "Nice little Midtown spot, not my favorite place in the world, but good for a quick bite to eat."

  • "We walked by this restaurant and thought it looked really nice, so we went back later that night. Our server wasn't too bad other than he didn't realize it is his job to pour wine. The food was good, not great though. The thing that really put us off was the fact that the football game was blaring on the television. Not much for ambience. We could hear the music blaring in one ear and the football game in the other ear, so made for a very unpleasant experience."

  • "The baked eggplant and the veal meatballs are great. Most pasta dishes are quite good too. Love the Layer Cake Primitivo Red Wine as well."

  • "We ate here because of a travelzoo promotion/coupon and will definitely be back. Seated by the owner, he enthusiastically reviewed the appetizers with us and we were not disappointed. The beef ribs in a balsamic reduction were the best I've ever had! We also selected this place as it was 3/4 mile from the Fox Theatre where we had tickets that evening, so it was a brisk 12 minute walk to the theatre from there which I enjoyed after gorging on the fresh Italian bread, ribs and freshly made pizza."

  • "Great Italian food, freshly made and very good service. Only negative was the seating, basically the tables are all high top style and using bar stool type chairs so feet are dangling or tucked behind you, not very comfortable. We had a pizza and the papperdale (spelling way off) and both were amazing. Cool atmosphere only have it 4 stars there due to the seating mentioned above."
