We recently dined at Gezzo’s Costal Cantina and had an unforgettable experience. The highlight of the evening was a complimentary meal sent over by Chef Cam, which was absolutely delicious. The ceviche was a standout, with fresh, vibrant flavors that truly showcased the best of Mexican cuisine. We also ventured to try the chapulines “grasshopper” taco, which was a new and exciting experience for us. It was unique and surprisingly delightful, adding a touch of adventure to our meal. Our server, Tine, was simply amazing. She was extremely well-informed about the menu and provided excellent recommendations. Her great conversational skills and warm demeanor made our dining experience even more enjoyable.

About the restaurant
Chef Ali Mesghali’s love of cooking began while growing up in Esfahan, Iran and Los Angeles, California. This interest grew to become a passion and a career after Ali moved to Atlanta, Georgia. In the kitchen, as well as in the dining room, Ali is known for his pursuit of perfection, his intensity and a love for what he does. This unending aspiration for perfection has been instrumental in establishing the standard for Persian cuisine in Atlanta. His unique and flavorful touch has been wowing patrons at Rumi’s Kitchen and has created a place where people want to visit again and again. The Rumi's Kitchen at Colony Square aims to earn the hearts of those in Midtown, Atlanta.

La Grotta literally means "the cave" in Italian and was named such for its cavernous and warm setting.

The menu specializes in Northern Italian cuisine with seasonal changes to reflect freshness of ingredients with a focus on locally grown produce.

This restaurant is one of the best I’ve been to in the Atlanta area. The sushi is the best I have had in the US. From the moment we sat down we were taken care of from our server and the sommelier. I highly recommend this restaurant.

About the restaurant
Grant Park's Best Kept Secret! A true neighborhood bistro located in Historical Grant Park home to Zoo Atlanta. Historic L.P. Grant Park is located in the southeast quadrant of the city approximately one mile from the gold dome of the state capitol building and six blocks south of I-20. The park is bordered by Boulevard SE on the east, Atlanta Avenue on the south, Cherokee Avenue on the west, Sydney Street on the north and Park Avenue and Berne Street on the northeast. Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979, Grant Park is the result of a gift of 100 acres to the City of Atlanta to be used in perpetuity as a public park. Lemuel Pratt Grant, donated the land and immediately began to subdivide and sell lots around the new park. The surrounding residential area grew up around the park and boasts more than 2,200 late 19th-century and early 20th-century homes and commercial structures.

This is a wonderful restaurant - really a fabulous find . A great place for a quiet meal- but also good for a big family gathering. The food is delicious- we tried both a lamb and a salmon dish- both were nicely seasoned and served with flavorful rices. We will be back as there were many items in the menu I would like to try

It is quite sometime since I wrote a review on my favorite italan restaurant. Antica Posta continues to be an icon of traditional Tuscan food. The service is efficient and very amiable. The food as always is prepared with fresh ingredients and it transports you to Italy. All the flavors are there!!
