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.

Limited menu but good quality. Nice wine list, predominantly Italian, as it should be. Friendly service. I consider the space cavernous and charmless.

Maybe a little better than average noK Caesar but hardly subtle. Poor risotto great tiramisu. Good bartender, John, attentive but not obsequious. Average service. Nothing special.

Waitstaff was great as as the host that greeted us. Food was not so wonderful. I had chicken parm that was overcooked and apparently was cooked earlier rather when ordered. My son has the special which was not to his taste and didn’t line up with how it was described. My wife had lasagna that was an unusual recipe that looked more like chicken and dumplings rather than lasagna. For the price, would have expected better.

The food was delicious, as always! The homemade pasta is very light and fluffy. Just about melts in your mouth. Crystal was a fantastic server, she made our experience even more enjoyable.

If you are interested in an authentic Italian restaurant, look no further than il Gato Osteria & Bar. This group has it down to a science from their robust menu of pasta and entree choices to their sides. On top of the excellent service and delivery, you can't go wrong! -

We eat here often. Brought a friend from out of town. Friend had dietary restrictions that were accommodated with ease by the chef and much appreciated.
Fish special was very good. I had a variety of vegetables and was disappointed in the roasted cauliflower. It was too much and didn’t really taste roasted- almost over cooked and then pan roasted or possibly oven roasted.

Good food, great service! That's why we keep going back. My wife had crab claws which she described as, "Superb!" My brother and I each had vitello alla parmigiana, which was terrific!

Best Italian food in Atlanta--by far. Excellent service, superb bartender, easy parking, nice decor. You watch your pasta being made and then it is even better than you dreamed.

Have dined there on multiple occasions and I thought the food was getting a bit tired. Not last night however. The braised pork belly was done perfectly served with lightly braised diced pear . The caramelle de funghi was truly outstanding. The pasta was light and delicate, the mushrooms delicious and the small pieces of asparagus done perfectly. The braised octopus as always excellent.

The food is very good, however they need to hire more cooks! extremely slow service. We had similar experience in the past but came back because the food was really good..hoping that they improved their service/hire more/faster cooks! Manager and waiter were extremely nice and apologetic but if they don't improve their service, they will not be open for long in spite of the good food.
I would still recommend it but don't go on Saturdays as they seem unable to handle big crowds

Service began with being promptly seated at reservation time. Our server Matt, took drink orders and introduced the menu and specials. This restaurant offers among the best wines by the glass available.
The lightly breaded and seasoned calamari appetizer was fresh and tender. I enjoyed a seasonal special, butternut squash and marscapone ravioli with roasted walnuts in a semi sweet butter sauce that just amazing. It reminded me of dining in Milan a few years back. The bread pudding dessert was a fine finisher. The service throughout our meal was attentive without being intrusive. Our party of five spent almost 2.5 hours enjoy a relaxing family meal.
Highly recommended!

The agnolotti was superb! The servings were gracious. I think I took home more than I ate, so I got to enjoy the leftovers for lunch the next day. Marcello was our server and could not have been more attentive, kind, and informative. I have eaten catered meals from Il Giallo many times. They never disappoint. I am sure to be a regular at the restaurant in the future. It’s a wonderful gem in Sandy Springs for authentic Italian, excellent service, and a wonderful atmosphere.

Serena was awesome ! Very knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. Large open space in dining area- very cool you can see the pasta being made in real time. Caesar salad was some of the best we ever had- crispy artichokes were not all as expected (I think they were the Jerusalem kind), duck angolotti was very good and a unique dish. Great for fall. Trout special was awesome! Will be back to try other dishes soon!
