Too noisy to fully enjoy
Pizza was great, but salad was rather small and overpriced. Also, the noise level made it virtually impossible to have a conversation. Next time, I think we would just pick up the pizza for takeout.

Exceptional & Creative Service
Thank you so much for a perfect meal and service. Josh is exceptional. We had a large group of nine girls for a birthday celebration, and he made everyone feel welcome and special. He was wonderful and patient with wine recommendations. He even went above and beyond and surprised the birthday girl with a glass of champagne and a candle (in response to her passing on dessert by saying she was going to drink her sweets!). The entire staff made our evening special from the moment we walked in to our departure. I highly recommend it for a fun, festive meal!

Merguez Sausage pizza was
Merguez Sausage pizza was excellent; cynar lime soda is refreshing and delicious. The wait staff should get more training, particularly given that the menu is somewhat different than other restaurants.

Great food service needs work
Excellent food and especially the pizzas!! The service was very slow and the restaurant was very very loud. Good if you don't want to hear or talk to the people you're with!

Definitely worth the visit
Very solid food execution across the board. Pizzas were delicious, as were pastas and appetizers. Especially liked the simple foccacia and olive oil--bread was salty and delicious. Menu is limited, so could be difficult to find something for everyone (depending on size of group).
Ambiance can best be described as weird. Almost all the seating is communal, and there's no bar to speak of. Not a fit for the Buckhead community. Has much more of a Midtown or Inman Park feel to it. Difficult to have an intimate dinner when you're sandwiched between 2 other groups.
All in all, I'd definitely go back, though would most likely request to sit at one of the non-communal tables, or just for a quick bite of pizza and beer.

Everything was perfect, the service was friendly, the wine recommendations were spot on, and the place just had great energy and was beautiful... A little noisy

Really yummy and clever
Pizzas stay the same but the rest changes, so it's so incredibly fresh. Everything I've had there is excellent, and the wait staff is so nice. If the focaccia and mozzarella butter is on the menu, you have to order it. So good.

Fantastic food and service
We had a large group (9) and they handled us perfectly.
The manager and the wait staff went out of there way to make it a special night.
It was a surprise birthday party---STG made it so much fun!!
They suggested great food and wine.

First time - very impressed
My wife and I tried STG for the first time. We live in Midtown and heard the former LPC chef had gone there, and we always enjoyed LPC (and continue to do so with the new chef.) We ventured all the way to Buckhead but were happy we did. It was a Sunday night, but there were a fair number of tables filled up. A decent amount of families/kids - surely due to it being an early Sunday. I liked that they figured some stuff and an innovated a bit:
1- no mains. Just small plates and pizzas.
2 - lots of long group-friendly bar-type seating.
Cool place with great food.

The food was very good, ample
The food was very good, ample portions for small plates, large pizzas with 6 varieties. Food was "different" with great flavors. I noticed a goodly number of young couples out on Friday night alone and together with others. A sophisticated place, low key décor.

I attended a beer dinner here. It was a 3 course meal prepared with beer and paired with beer. The food was all excellent, and the beer pairings were pleasing. I am very interested in going back here and ordering off the normal menu. The decor was pleasant, attentive servers, and good location.

Our meal was great. We sat outside which was nice. Xavier, our waiter, was great! Many thanks to all.

Great neighborhood Italian. Love the wood-fired oven pizzas, pastas and desserts. Since its tucked in the back, I don't think many folks know that its even there.

The watermelon salad was fresh and creative, the manila clams were outstanding, and the roasted chicken was superb. I was told the chef, Sean Telo, came from Miller Union and is going to the James Beard competition in NYC. They carry bottles Masi Amarone for the same price as I find it in at a wine shop! Our server, Nick was very knowledgeable about the food and especially the wines. He told us about the different Nebbiolo's, Amarone's, and Super Tuscans. He even went out of his way to bring us a couple tastes of wines before we ordered. Overall a fantastic experience. I only wish it were easier to find (it's tucked away in the back corner of the parking lot). Definitely coming back again and asking for Nick!

Really enjoyed the food however it was very loud. And it was not packed. I wouldn't want to be there on a really busy night. The service was good - the food was the best part. Pizza, salads, appetizers were very, very good.

My friends and I picked STG as our Girls Night Out spot. The restaurant had a good atmosphere and big communal tables that were perfect for our occasion. The service was excellent and the wine list was great. But, we shared the pizza and thought it was just ok. We had one margarita pizza and one mushroom pizza. Out of those two the margarita was the best. The mushroom was really dry and tasted earthy. The style of pizza is similar to Antico but, not quite as good. We would go back and give some other dishes a shot.

Divine pizza venue
STG Trattoria does a great job with the pizza. It is outstanding!

Awesome pizza. Doughy but
Awesome pizza. Doughy but thin crust, bubbling and just a touch blackened on the edges, with flavorful sauce and good buffalo mozzarella. As good as Antico, but you are waited on and at lunch you can get a personal sized pizza. Recommend keeping the pizza simple - Margherita is fantastic. They also have great fresh vegetables - worth getting a salad before the pizza.
In early evening you could bring your kids. Love that a proper Italian style pizzeria is in Buckhead! Can seem noisy even when not very crowded because the floors and walls reflect sound.
