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.

Il Giallo, great as usual. Food, drinks all mouth watering. We were particularly pleased to be seated in the section waited on by Serena- she's been our server before and is prompt, attentive, and anticipates incredibly well. She's a gem, if we could have her every time we would.

We throughly enjoyed our visit!! The food was excellent with great portion sizes. Jenna was our hostess, who was the ultimate professional. Her personality, attention to detail, patience in answering our questions was fantastic. In fact, every member of the hospitality crew we interacted with were friendly and professional. We are incredibly happy to have found Giallo and will be going back often.

I found the bread too salty. My Caesar salad had too much dressing on it.
My Brussels Sprouts were quite salty as well.
Our entrees were all quite good.

Another stellar evening at our favorite Sandy Springs restaurant. The branzino was scrumptious & the focaccia bread a perfect way to soak up all the extra sauce. Veal chop special melted in your mouth. Homemade gelato with in house made biscotti always a treat. Everything at this spot is super fine tuned.

Expected a dependable meal based on reviews, wasn’t expecting how phenomenal the food was. Service was great too, but the entire table was raving about their meals. Already planning a return trip!

They are extremely accommodating as we take our dog and sit outside like true Italians. The pasta is always freshly made to order and the gnocchi is to die for.

This was our 4th time here. We love how comfortable the restaurant feels. All is spread out, you can hear each other speak, and the food is amazing. So fresh. And all is served so hot, which is hard with pasta sometimes. We love that fantastic focaccia bread too. Service has always been fantastic.

Very good food. Service was very nice. We were sitting outside which is facing the parking lot, but it was still very nice. No kids menu but they did work with us to provide a meal that they liked. Would go back.

We always enjoy our time at il Giallo! They have an extensive wine selection and always offer delicious suggestions. The food was very good, as always, but our server, Jackson, was a little soft spoken and difficult to hear at times. He seemed nervous and would forget to pour wine or take an order but then come back around to fix the error. He seemed to be slightly scattered and required a few prompts/ reminders from us. Otherwise, he was kind and would always seek an answer to a question he didn't feel comfortable answering. We have had better service in the past, but this won't prevent us from returning in the future.

Wasn’t bad, but was underwhelmed. Service was very slow. I would recommend anyone wanting Italian food to try Novo Cucina in Dunwoody.

An oasis of good food and good service. On the subject of service, this is clearly a team effort with all involved performing to the highest standards but I must single out our primary server, Jackson, who did a simply outstanding job of tending to our table. A first class experience from start to finish.
