La Pietra Cucina
This restaurant was recentlyThis restaurant was recently renovatated, and now is more open, brighter, and contemporary. The kitchen is now visible from the dining room. I would particularly
recommend the goat cheese agnolotti, which was not what I expected. It was very light with a great flavor profile, one of the best pastas in Atlanta. The veal loin was wonderfully seasoned, a marked improvement on an earlier dish. Be warned that the valet
parking is not complimentary.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExceeded our expectationsExceeded our expectations.
LPC is now so much better than it was during the last two years and on par with the original cooking that put them on the map.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Dining Experience!!I recently heard that LPC had revamped. I'd been to the old location, and while the food was good, it was very $$$, so was glad to find that LPC is much more affordable than it used to be. I first gave it a shot a few Fridays ago when some girlfriends and I went to take advantage of the $5 pizza from 5-7-- tried all 3; absolutely delicious. My husband and I made it back this wkn and had a fantastic experience. The service was top notch and the food was memorable and delicious. We started with the brussel sprout salad, which went perfectly with a crisp glass of white wine. Next, the daily bruschetta -- salmon, smoked in house. Yum! LOVED the squid ink pasta, goat cheese agnolotti melted in your mouth and salmon entree was great. GO!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food and great serviceFood and service was amazing. The ambiance was not my taste - music and lighting. I would recommend that they update their music and dim the lighting. Other than that, it was fabulous. Their salads are very unique, fresh and yummy. Try the goat cheese ravioli and you will not be disappointed!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent asThe food was excellent as well as the service. The meat ball appetizer was generous and very tasty with the added unexpected sweet pepper added to the sauce. The papparadelle was also very generous and just right, not overcooked.
It was a suprise to be in a quiet restaurant for a change! Being able to talk without shouting should be every good restaurant's goal.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMEngaging food, attentive staffWe enjoyed a fabulous dinner at LPC. First, the staff is terrific! I asked a Q about a cocktail and the barkeep came right out to share his thoughts. The chef came out twice to chat, including sending one of our foodie foursome home with tarragon salt. Salads were truly fantastic--best beet salad I've had in years (rich, sweet diced beets paired with crunch of nut and cream) and a super-fresh brussel sprout salad that was very innovative. Very tasty butternut squash ravioli and a short rib done to perfection, with a reduction that was perfect for the polenta. Rich, fab chocolate cake for dessert.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was fabulous andThe food was fabulous and the service great.
