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.

I have been dining at Il Giallo's since thie first day it opened it's doors and it has always surpassed my expectations! The food is always fantastic, the servers are friendly and very knowledgeable and the ambience is delightful! One of my top 10 for fine dining in Atlanta! If you like Octopus, it's the best in the city!!!

Best calamari around! Authenic Italian cuisine in Sandy Springs!

The service, food and wine were all first rate. We ate outside, since some seats are available under the outdoor awning because of the Covid impact, and that was just as pleasant as indoors historically has been.

Found the menu limited but that is to be expected these days. Was hoping for branzino. My smoked salmon didn’t have much of a smoked flavor. It was good but not smokey to my taste.
My husband was surprised there was no spaghetti or anything served with the veal Parmesan.
I think we were a bit underwhelmed having not eaten here in a while.
Not sure we’ll be back as we line other Italian restaurants more.

We had a great dinner here last night. DELICIOUS food included the agnolotti, filet, roasted cauliflower and Insalata di Rucola. The wine was heavenly too. Great service, and VERY SAFE. The tables were spaced out and all staff wore masks. I missed this place and was so glad to come back.

Had dinner Saturday night with a client/friend. We both ordered the night's specials: Flounder & Lamb tenderloin. Both were exceptionally good and perfectly prepared. Then we split the peach cobbler. Couldn't have been a better finish. Jamie Adams is a great talent. Will be back soon.

Table of 6 adults, 2 children. Food was, as always, excellently prepared, including a couple of special requests. Our server, Maurice, was exceptional--attentive, congenial, knowledgeable of the menu and how offerings were prepared. We will ask for him on our next visit, which will be soon. Excellent implementation of coronavirus protocols. Il Giallo is a neighbor gem that never disappoints.

This was actually our first venture to dine out since COVID restrictions were lifted, and everyone at il Giallo knocked themselves out to ensure our experience was exceptional. The food was fabulous (the swordfish special was sensational), the service was friendly and attentive, and the always wonderful ambience was enhanced with an al fresco table option that we took advantage of. Thanks for your gracious hospitality - It was a pleasure dining with you again!

Dining at Il Giallo is always a wonderful experience. The food was delicious. Serena and Todd go over and above to make sure everything is perfect. You can feel safe in knowing that every precaution has been observed due to COVID-19.

The patio dining only enhances the experience and made for a perfect evening.

My husband is not crazy about dining out due to trouble hearing in noisy restaurants. After learning about the new outdoor seating, (bistro tables with white tablecloths) we decided to try it. We had an amazing meal with calamari, duck ravioli, and halibut. The manager stopped by our table several times and our server was excellent. A perfect night out!
