We opened on May 20 2015, with the mission to share our Italian heritage and delight our guests with exceptional cuisine. Our pizza dough is naturally leavened, never frozen, and our pastas are made freshly every day.

Out of many pizza restaurants in Atlanta to choose from, we intend ours to be the one chosen for quality.

This was our first time eating at Crispina, just a casual dinner for two on a weeknight. The outdoor seating was crowded and ugly – you're sitting on the concrete sidewalk looking out at an asphalt parking lot and busy intersection. Perhaps inside would have been more pleasant...? But what was really disappointing was the lackluster food. My Caesar salad was limp and they forgot to dress it. (When I asked for dressing, it was eventually delivered.) The spaghetti Bolognese was watery and tasted like tomato paste; we added salt to give it some taste. The sausage and pepper pizza was better but not remarkable. This would have been a dull and uninspiring meal if we'd prepared it ourselves at home... but we drove out and spent $60 for it! We will probably not return to Crispina.

I ordered Chicken Parmesan. The chicken was tasteless. It need more seasoning. Waiter was nice and helpful and service quick.

The chicken cacciatore and lasagna were amazing. Great wine list with some great Italian wines as well. Staff, of course, was fantastic and our server, Kendall, was great on checking on us periodically. Love the quietness and atmosphere, we'd definitely go back.

I’ve been to Cristina a few years back and tried again the other night. I liked that we sat outside, and we had some privacy. The food was not so good. I think pizzas would have been best choice. The calamari lacked flavor, but I’m very picky. I chose the 6 oz steak with polenta. The steak was tough. They put a huge blob of polenta on my plate which was unattractive. I didn’t eat it. Caesar salad was fresh and crispy. What made the evening was the singer with his old tunes, our young waiter who did his best. If I try again, I will stick to pizza.

We ate outside and enjoyed the crisp night air. Our meal started with meatballs and Campolieti Valpolicella Ripasso. It was followed by the best caesar salad - the salad dressing make it the best. The Chicken Parmesan, that was the special for the night, was delicious. What a wonderful relaxing dining experience!

I used to go to this restaurant years ago, but it briefly closed and reopened with a new owner. The food is still really good, the staff is super friendly and attentive. We started with the Insalata Caprese and after we finished, ordered the entrée, Veal Adriano which was really good. The veal was cooked perfectly and the pasta was equally good all in a lemon, white wine sauce. For dessert, we ordered Crispina's cheesecake which I normally am not a fan, but it isn't as heavy like most. They topped the cheesecake with caramel and unlike most places, it was nicely coated which made it tastier.

With the pandemic still very prominent, I felt very comfortable eating here because they social distanced the tables inside and out. If you want to eat really good food for a reasonable price, I highly recommend eating at Crispina.

This Crispina is small inside with a good bit of outdoor seating. There is also a Barrett PKWY location which has more inside seating.

We recently discovered this gem and have been loving the food here - the pizza is truly thin crust, and the pasta is really fresh and savory. They do have heat lamps in the covered outdoor area, and the indoor ambience is very comfortable.

The food as always was outstanding from her Sophia Loren pizza to the ravioli with spinach. they have done a superb job during the COVID pandemic if protecting their customers and the service help. You can feel comfortable choosing Crispina for dinner out and will be rewarded with great food and service.

We are "regulars" at Crispina. So nice to have such a great diner close by. We enjoyed a great pizza and the special of the night. Both were executed with care and were delicious.

I made a reservation and my table was ready in time. Thanks to the very courteous employee to set that up. First time visit and we went for family dinner. We were very excited to try this place since we saw it on Atlanta Eats and it was spot on. The service was phenomenal and the food delicious. They bring you bread with Olive oil and cracked pepper...yummy! From Antipasti we ordered Zeppole E Croquettes....it was ok nothing fancy. Then as main dish Lasagna, Pappardelle Pompei and Bucatini all Amtriciana. Huge portions, legit pasta with fresh ingredients. Delicioso!! And for dessert the Ricotta Cheesecake....boom at another level. The place get a little busy so maybe plan ahead. We will definitely go back.

Our server Matt was great. Calamari Fritti and Margherita pizza were excellent. Zeppole e Croquettes were okay. The grilled octopus and arugula salad was good but the roasted potatoes were too too dry. Panna Cotta and Tiramisu were delicious. Will come back for the calamari fritti and pizza.

Crispina is a favorite of ours! We go there regularly. Everything is all so good, & tasty. We even have a neighbor that was my client when quarantine started & we have now become great friends & dine together several times a week to be social. During lock down we ordered to go from Crispina, & my neighbor client would come to our home, he wasn’t about to miss out on good food! This trip he texted me & my husband “hey any plans for dinner?” My hubby replied “what do you have in mind ? He said “Crispina?”, everyone we invite here becomes a regular. We love this place.
We recommend the calamari, we like ours fried crispy. The Caesar salad is good so is the Caprese salad, I always get the veal Adriana I substitute the pasta for spinach they fix everything as you like it I prefer less garlic, my husband prefers more garlic. This time they ordered tiramisu for dessert I think we’ve had everything on the menu my neighbor always loves Buka teeny they have tried probably everything on the menu I find my favorite and stick with it.
