No. 246 offers “OG” red sauce, classic Italian – a reimagined direction that marks a new era for the Decatur gem, paying homage to the old-school, Italian dining scenes of yesteryear. From chefs Drew Belline and Ford Fry, the menu showcases the likes of spicy rigatoni vodka and a bowl of meatballs in gravy plus remixed, throwback to classics like calamari marinara, cheesy garlic bread, Nonna-approved pizzas and pastas and secondi crowd-pleasers like chicken al limone and shrimp scampi – plus classic cocktails and a carefully curated wine list of American and Italian standouts.

    Our experience at no. 246 was amazing. The food was fantastic and our service was top tier. Emily was super helpful and attentive. She even gave us a card from the crew for our anniversary 💙 We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will definitely be back!

    Last night, was disappointing due to where our table was located in the bar. Our table was basically on top of two other tables and one of us could not get up if a server was at the one table without waiting or crowding another table. I understand the restaurant is trying to fit people there, but we had had these reservations for months. It felt like we were added to the end just to fit in last minute or something.  the food and service were great as always, but unfortunately, due to the table location we were a bit disappointed, so I wanted to provide the feedback. We will be back in the future.

    The Caesar salad was drenched in the dressing and became too rich to enjoy. The ingredients were excellent, including the anchovies. Next time I would order the Caesar dressing on the side and mix it myself. The chicken marsala was very good. The cocktail was very nice having some bread and olive oil before you ordered is appreciated.

    Great meal overall, but the side pasta that we ordered to go with the chicken parm was literally about 2 oz, much less than half of a usual portion. We’ve eaten here a lot and it was tiny for $7 extra. Very disappointing since the pasta was one of main reasons we crave this place.

    With a reservation we were seated immediately! Greeted by several employees in the restaurant. Waiter greeted our table in good timing, offering suggestions and recommendations for our first time. We ended up ordering the fughi pizza for an appetizer, chicken Marsala & chicken Parmesan with a side of pasta for our entrees. Everything was delicious. I even warmed up the leftovers for lunch the next day! I will definitely return.

    We went for a Mother’s Day dinner with the family. The food and service were excellent. We had small bump with the delivery of one of the meals, but management quickly addressed and helped us through. It is rare that a service goes perfectly, so I give credit when those challenges are addressed and managed quickly. Full credit to this tasty and well run establishment.

    Wonderful Italian experience. We were certainly my daughter’s graduation from Emory as well as Mother’s Day and we had an early reservation. The parking is limited so get there a little early, we found reasonable parking a block over. Our waitress was patient, knowledgeable and helpful with ordering. Food was hot, tasty and delicious. Well worth it!

    The food and cocktails were fantastic, and our waiter was superb. We asked for a wine recommendation, and Ryan not only gave us a unique and delightful recommendation but also wrote up 2 notecards for us with the wine information. The notecards alone were above-and-beyond, but his style in creating them (so artful!) was especially so.

    Excellent, interesting food. Service was a bit frazzled - they could probably use another server when they have a full house. I think ours, who was very pleasant and knowledgeable, just had too many tables.

    My cousin and I thoroughly enjoyed brunch here. The service is always immaculate, but the brunch is just….delicious. I loved the unique pairings of the small appetizers they bring out before your entree and the entree selections vary from sweet to savory but are all fantastic. One of my absolute favs in ATL. Good coffee and espresso martinis too! Can’t get enough!

I was reluctant to go at first because the menu seen limited but when I tell you, they have perfected every dish on the menu I cannot say it loud enough the whole experience was great. The staff was absolutely fantastic and attentive our needs and the food and the appetizers were just to die for, I am a foodie and I give this restaurant a 11 1/2 on the scale of one to 10
