    From start to finish the meal was yummy. Asperagus w/egg and octopus salad started the evening off right. My duck parpadelle was delicious and the donut holes at the end (not begneits as they were described) were none-the-less mouth-watering.

    My wife and I visit Veni Vidi Vici occasionally because it is an especially enjoyable restaurant.. The ambiance is delightful, the service unusually attentive and the menu is good. We always find delicious new items. On one occasion, a "vegetarian" soup was accidentally served including a slice of bacon. We received sincere apologies and the charge was deducted from our bill. Other people dining here often have an especially reserved manner which adds to the feeling that this is indeed a select place to dine. The facilities for an entrance that is handicap-friendly are excellent and the valet service is friendly

    The place is hidden but very elegant! We loved the live jazz music. The wine was amazing and it came recommended by one of the hostesses. It went beautifully with the veal scallopini I ordered. The portion size was good ( not too little and not too much). The service was GREAT! I would truly recommend it for a couple's romantic dinner on the town.

    We have been to Vini Vidi Vici many times but this time was really exceptional. The scallops on the cauliflower puree were amazing and the fresh fish awesome. We asked for the fish head to take home to our kitties and the chef gave us two fish heads. Kitties say thank you and so do we!

    We brought a guest who had never been here. He was very pleased with his meal as we were. I requested special prepared veg pasta &my husband followed with special prepared seafood pasta. Both were excellent. The chef always comes through w/ our special requests. Our guest ordered spicy pasta w/ sausage - he thoroughly enjoyed his food and mentioned it to the waiter. We can always count on great food and service here. Thank you for a great evening.

    Disappointing dinner at VVV. Have been there many many times and have always been happy. This time time service was so slow and sporadic and the food was average. The valet was extremely slow both at drop off and pick up. Too many great restaurant options for VVV to have such an off night.

    That's how V3 was! My husband and I have good hearing but we had to really strain to hear each other. The problem may have been the four large parties in the restaurant but the sound level was deafening. The service was great; my entree (the pasta special) was great. My husband said his zuppa and his tuna entree were great although the tuna entree was rather stingy on the amt. of tuna.

    I ordered something that was not on the menu - pasta with garlic and oil (just had an urge for it and it's my favorite) - when it came it was just a little spicy in bites - turns out the chef added red pepper to it. No problem - they let me pick around the peppers and brought me a whole new dish that was wonderful. And - it was just as good the following evening for dinner.

    Not as good as last time we visited. I ordered fish which was too salty and a very tiny portion (didn't even look like 4 ozs). However, my partner had the pork shank which was very tasty, extremely tender and very nice portion size. Probably would go back even though one meal was disappointing.

    Everything was absolutely superb. It was my fiance's birthday. He didn't want the typical birthday singing, so I told the server. She brought him a delicious tiramisu with Happy Birthday written on the plate. It was a fantastic experience. Everything was impeccable. We certainly plan to return for our next special occasion. Our server always addressed us by name.

    They did it again! A wonderful evening was had by my wife and I. The live music was a treat and added to the already comfortable ambience. She had the agnolotti which is always superb and full of rich earthy flavor. I had the siciliano, a new addition to my ever growing favorites list here. The sword fish was spot on cooked to perfection, and what can I say about the wonderfully savory crust! Out of the park! Our waitress was prompt, and very knowledgable about all the specials. She was attentive but never overbearing which was welcoming. After falling in love with these exellent dishes, it's quite hard to visit and try new dishes. I guess we'll have to come back and give it our best shot LOL!! Thanks again V.V.V.

    This was our first visit and we were impressed from the moment we entered the door. We were greeted immediately and seated right away. Our server was Burke and she was truly amazing. She made awesome recommendations about the specials and drinks. Burke started us out with fresh cheese and bread. The food was on point as I had the spiced swordfish which was truly amazing!! My husband had the linguine and clams and he was equally impressed. We are planning our next visit. My only suggestion would be to make your reservation after 5:00 for dinner as the parking deck does not open till 5:00 we arrived a bit early and had to drive around for about 15 min. Great food and great atmosphere!!

    We have eaten at this restaurant since before Buckhead Life bought it. It used to be really good, really genuine Italian food. This past Monday (08/18/2014) My wife's spaghetti and meatballs (pretty simple Italian fare, right?) was horrible. The pasta was like grammar school paste...all stuck together and tasteless. The "meatballs" were like sawdust....unbelievable!! Pano needs to get into this restaurant, fire the kitchen, and start over. By the way, our server had the gall to have an attitude. Don't waste your time or your money.

    Came here for dinner for the first time because of the Buckhead Life Dine Around card. Sunday night had scallopini specials of chicken and veal. We tried one of each over smashed potatoes. Mine was grilled chicken, my husband had veal piccata. Both were excellent, so tender and flavorful. Also had the sides of roasted brussel sprouts and eggplant parmesan. We savored every bite. Musician was playing in the corner. Tables are spaced a good distance from one another. Wonderful evening out.

    It has been a couple of years since I have been able to return to this Atlanta gem. Wow, even better than I remembered. First, my deepest admiration for our server. We put her to the test, asked lots of questions, and took our time. She was wonderful. When we couldn't decide between two wines, she let us sample them. Kudos to the chef who made our evening extremely memorable without any slip ups. Our fare included octapus, osso bucco, veal saltimboca, rabbit, risotto and it was all amazing. This was my husband's first visit and he was extremely impressed. If you are in mid-town you are cheating yourself of a wonderful experience if you don't get to Veni Vidi Vici.

    Dinner with a friend. Entered the restaurant and the greeting was very pleasant. The ambience was beautiful. Our server Travis came over introduced himself and called me by name which was impressive. Travis spitted off his tongue the specials of the day that was not on the menu so eloquently all while having a trainee in tow. He was very attentive to our needs which made our dining experience a great one. The manager came over to introduce himself as well. I definitely would recommend dining here and would definitely go back for dinner. I am also contemplating a work event during lunch.

    While the food was outstanding, the service bordered on disappointing - both in timeliness/attentiveness of the server as well as her attitude. I would have been disappointed in my overall experience, but hey it was a business dinner - which is probably the only occasion that will bring me back.
