    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.

    I'm trying to remember why I haven't been to Veni Vedi Vici in over ten years. Won't make that mistake again! Everything was delicious! I didn't see what I was craving on the menu but the chef accommodated me anyway! And our waiter, Travis, was delightful. Plan to return again soon and often.

    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.

    Access is difficult. Valet parking protocol is not confidence building. Garage is a maze with multiple exits and client has no receipt to exit. Great tour before we found our valet and freedom. Entrance into and through the bar is a distraction resembling a neighborhood bar. Dining room looks and acts like a wedding hall reception. Dinner was enjoyable but not "special" Not a candidate for a return visit.

    We had a greart experience. We were seated right away. Our server, Travis, was extremely helpful from helping us chose a wine to dessert. Prices are a little in the high side for Italian food (they offer more tham just oasta dishes however) but thought prices were good for an upscale restaurant in Midtown ATL. It was a beautiful restaurant without feeling stuffy. We will be back, I have no doubt!!

    We always enjoy the food each time we visit here. The breadsticks and herb bread are delicious along side a crisp glass of refreshing wine. My husband and I shared the soft shell crab appetizer. I chose the branzino fish fillet for my entrée, and my husband chose the pugliese, which we both enjoyed with a side of smashed potatoes. We shared the delicious, warm bread pudding for dessert. Valerie, our wait person, was very attentive and made great suggestions. All in all, another great dining experience.

    I used to love the food at Veni Vidi Vici even though my mother used to say you love people and like food. As time passed the menu seemed dated- the food lost its earlier appeal. We only visited the restaurant because we participate in Buckhead Life Group's Summer Dine Around. Wow, were we surprised! The bread was absolutely delicious. Entrees treated our taste buds to a succession of exciting, harmonious, even sensuous flavors and textures. The Polipo was the best octopus I've ever had. My wife had the Branzino and described it as very fresh, perfectly cooked and succulent. The sausage in the Orechiette set this pasta apart as special. My only regret is that I forgot my Summer Dine Around Card!

    I came in with my son to celebrate his first day of Pre-K. Everything was amazing. We loved the seafood risotto and the creme brûlée was very tasty. The service we received was impeccable! Our server Todd was very attentive and the manager was very friendly also. I thought it was nice of her to come by and check in on us and she addressed me by name. I am happy I finally got a chance to try Veni Vidi Vici as it was the only Buckhead Life restaurant that I hadn't tried. I can't wait to return with my son and my husband.
