    Located in a house near the Atlanta Arts Center, this restaurant has been serving delicious pasta dishes for 20 years. My favorite is the Tortelli da Mele, ravioli stuffed with Granny Smith apples and sausage in a brown butter sauce. Prices are exceptionally reasonable---$15 for most entrees,$4 for Caesar salad. The maître d', Derrick, is friendly, accommodating, and very interesting. I plan to return and have recommended it to my friends.

    We enjoy the theater attending performances at the Allience theater. We come into the city early for dinner and a glass of wine before the show. We discovered Pasta da Pulcinella through restaurant review search. They were gracious and accommodating for a last minute reservation though Open Table. The atmosphere was charming. It seems that reservations would be recommended as the dinning room is smaller, although the outdoor patio is a great option weather permitting. The food is good with an Italian rustic flair. Portion and price are reasonable and wine list offers some interesting opitions. The night we were there the service was great. Try the in house sorbet! Would recommend Pasta da Pulcinella and plan to visit again.

    It was a beautiful autumn evening and we sat out on the deck. The room was also beautiful. The food was fantastic, especially the lobster ravioli and the sausage and apple ravioli. It took a while to find a wine, several were sold out. The server went back and forth several times and remained gracious bringing us tastes of different wines. I visit Atlanta often for business and I cannot wait to return to this restaurant.

    I live around the corner from the restaurant and had not tried it out, so decided to give it a try with my dad, as he was visiting me from Florida. We sat outside and had a great time. Wine, food, and service were great! The prices are very reasonable and will definitely hit it up again.

    We went with another couple and shared a bottle of excellent, reasonably priced wine. Quality dishes and excellent service were provided, but 6 or so small raviolis for $15.00, come on now. The price shown on the menu seemed reasonable for good food at a nice restaurant, but after receiving our food we concluded that it was a poor value, and for that reason will not likely return. To me and to many others, it is a turnoff when your server delivers a large plate but all you see is a little dollop of food in the center, more appetizer portion than main dish portion. "Where's the beef?" comes to mind. It was quite busy for a Sunday night so maybe we were the only ones that felt that way. It's a shame because they did everything else right.

    Charm and character belie Pasta da Pulcinella's somewhat out of the way location. Proximity to The Fabulous Fox Theatre also makes it a wonderful choice for theater-goers. Outdoor dining option is very welcome on cool evenings. Cocktails, appetizers, entrees and desserts were all excellent. The wine list's by-the-glass selection is rather limited though.

    I dined here for the first time with my friend from college. It was the beginning of restaurant week and the place was hopping. The restaurant week menu was comprehensive allowing you to choose from many entree dishes. Our server, Josh, was very helpful in giving us an overview of the big sellers. In the end we both chose the Tortelli de Mele as an entree and it was fabulous! Josh steered us in the right direction and catered to our every need. Service was great! I will definitely go back.

    Always a steady performance and great service. Went there for my partner's birthday and they comped dessert with a candle. Classy but not all restaurants do this. Great Italian ( I had the special risotto ). Service is always great. Parking is a hassle though and costs $4 or $5 bucks.

    Worst meal out in a long time. Gnocchi overly sweet and pasta staples underwhelming. One of our party had their enter served several minutes after the others. It was the fish special and he found inedible. At least they comped it. Salad overly oily. It was Sunday and might have been an off night but I don't feel compelled to give them a second chance.

    We were only in Atlanta for 5 days, but went to Pasta da Pulcinella 2 times. We discovered it the first night because it was right behind out hotel and liked it so much, we went back our last night in town. The food was great and the menu had just the right amount of variety. The service was excellent and we liked the cozy ambiance.
