Engaging food, attentive staff
We 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.

The 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.

Delicious food and great service
Food 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!

Fantastic 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!

Exceeded our expectations
Exceeded 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.

This restaurant was recently
This 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.

great as always
Dined outside this time. It was so nice and peaceful. We had the meatballs, which were not only huge, but very tasty. I've had bufala mozz salad several times, but this one is definitely one of the better ones I've tasted. We had the Linguni carbonara and the Salmon. I was reminded that it is easy to mess a simple dish up, but to prepare a classic dish properly is not always that easy; and LPC always does it well! The carbonara is one of the best I've ever had.

An absolute must
Absolutely great food. A great wine list; great service. The menu was fabulous. The only concern was that there were not a lot of people in the restaurant for how fabulous it was. Hopefully people pick up on this great find and this restaurant makes it!!

Better than expected
After reading a few of the mixed reviews my girlfriend and I were a little reluctant to try this place, although it is so convenient for the Ansley Park Playhouse, where we were headed after dinner. Surprisingly, this place was not busy at all. It started getting a little busier before we walked over to the play.
The service we received was very good. One thing I hate is when servers are overbearing and make you feel rushed. When a place isn't busy it would be easy for the waiter/waitress to be at your table all the time. Our waitress did a very good job of giving us time to enjoy the place. The dinners we ordered were very good. Lots of flavor and perfectly cooked. We would definitely go back and would recommend LPC to others.

I went to LPC for a romantic birthday dinner with my boyfriend after reading about the restaurant in Zagat. The prosciutto flatbread was our favorite dish of the night. The frito misto was good, but the large portion was quite filling and a bit overwhelming. He had the bollonase, which was amazing.I ordered the squid ink spaghetti after reading great reviews on it, but I was unfortunately very very disappointed. It was so spicy and odd that neither of us were willing to finish it. To LPC's credit, both pastas were handmade and very high quality. For secondi, I ordered the salmon, which was phenomenal. The combination of flavors and lightness of the dish was truly exceptional. The skin was crispy and the fish was insanely juicy.

Great for lunch meeting
I attended LPC along with 6 guests for a networking lunch meeting. The restaurant was nearly empty --- that was great for us since we could hear each other so well, but I would have expected there to be more diners. I would have liked for the restaurant to have been more full. All of that aside, the food is outstanding and I will continue to dine at LPC for all types of occasions.

Foodie pasta heaven
Went on a Saturday night - no trouble getting a reservation. The service was impeccable. Wine list was amazing. Two of us shared three half-sized pasta and risotto dishes, all of which were absolutely fantastic. Each was so different but they worked well as a nice tasting trio. The coffee gelato and chocolate budino desserts were also a lovely way to end the night!

Showed up late in the evening but our waiter met us with a smile, let us take our time and enjoy the wonderful food, wine and ambiance. A really great dining experience... try the brussel spout salad and any pasta for a happy taste experience.
