Italian
il Giallo (pronounced il-JAH-lo) is a partnership between Leonardo Moura and Chef Jamie Adams and their goal is to transport you to a little piece of Italy.
While il Giallo means both “Yellow” and “Mystery” in Italian, yellow, the color of the yolk, the sun and the grains, it represents il Giallo’s wholesomeness; the ingredients used will be responsibly sourced, fresh and flavorful. Mystery represents the new, different and exciting flavors and aromas found throughout the constantly evolving il Giallo menu.
We strive to accurately represent the foods and flavors found in the towns and villages along Italy’s Coastal regions, the freshest imaginable hand-made pastas found in the mountains and plains and lest we for forget, the bounty of cured meats, cheeses and olive oils from north to south.
We want to become an extension of your home by providing a comfortable and inviting atmosphere where you will want to spend time with friends and family.

Getting a drink at the bar is challenging as they seat people there to eat.. annoying for those eating and for those trying to get a pre-dinner cocktail! The open plan nature and upmarket 'diner' design of the restaurant did not appeal to my aesthetic but otherwise, the food was first rate and very good table service made the evening for us.

My parents and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner here for my birthday. I ordered an Aperol Spritz to drink, and we shared the grilled octopus as an appetizer. Cooked perfectly and delicious. I also ordered the squid ink fettuccine for my entree—great choice! Server was very friendly and informative and the ambience was very upbeat and exciting. Can’t wait to go back for a date night with my fiancée!

Only our second or third time dining at Il Giallo but it was on point as usual. The service was very attentive but not intrusive. Our server and the sommelier were both very friendly and knowledgeable.

We each had a different main course and they were all delicious as well as generous portions. The wine list is excellent. The atmosphere is a bit loud but not excessive. We were adding to the noise level ourselves having such a good time enjoying our dinner.

This one of my favorite places to dine. The appetizers are fantastic, the calamari being my favorite. Several entrees to choose from. The pasta is always cooked to perfection. I recently had the yellow snapper. It was fabulous. You should add this to your best dining locations!

il Giallo is our favorite restaurant where we dine every few weeks. The dishes are always delicious and the pasta is made right before your eyes. The specials, such as brazini fish, are fabulous, and there are many entrée dishes to choose from. Save room for their marvelous desserts. The service is perfect, and we are anxious to try their new catering service soon.

This is the Sandy Springs version of the now closed Vidi Veni Vici. The food is very good and the prices are towards the upper end but fairly priced. I’ve been there a handful of times and the food is consistently good. I will certainly be going back again.

Took my wife there for her birthday. The food, as always, was outstanding and fairly unique. They graciously decanted a special bottle of wine that we'd brought with us for the occasion. I've never had a meal that was less than outstanding at Il Giallo!

Wonderful service, great food,(I had the whole fish de-boned) and the bread and roll are good enough too kill for. It was a fun family evening in a comfortable facility with people that cared about their customer. I have keep the exact count, but we have been to Il Giallo's somewhere between 15 to 20 times. It;s one of by top five favorites. Keep rolling.
