The service was HORRIBLE. The waiter didn't want to be there and it showed. The host sat us a the table on the very end outside, that wasn't an issue. However, they sat us next to 2 proprane tanks, when asked to have them moved... they made it seem as if it was a problem to move. The food was bland, pasta with tomato sauce on top. We were really disappointed considering that had good reviews.
Good food and ambiance. Service was very, very, very slow but personable. Appeared slow overall regarding service.
Horrible customer service!!
I need to start by saying that we have been regulars at Chrispina four nearly 4 years dining there two to three times per month. We have just experienced one of the worst customer experiences I have ever seen at any restaurant ever! We were having an issue placing our order because they were out of one of the items that we wanted and instead of taking care of us, the totally unprofessional manager decided it would be better to sit there and argue with us about why he could not take care of us as customers. I was so taken back and furious with the way that I was treated by this manager, that our party of four just walked out and left. To make things worse he followed us out into the parking lot making an entire scene about why he was not able to take care of us. This was absolutely a horrible way to treat regular customers!! We will never set foot in your restaurant again and recommend others take the same advice.
Aside from the horrible way that we were treated, let’s talk about the food quality declining over the past few years. The grilled octopus which used to be fabulous is now terrible and I could not even order it again. Also the veal adrianna which is their signature dish is getting very tired and not made with the same care as it was initially. This really affects the quality of the dish. The chicken cacciatore it’s so tasteless it is almost not even edible. I would never even order that again.
Do yourself a favor and find a restaurant where they actually respect their customers.

As usual, Crispina was a great evening out. This is such a comfortable feel and a great neighborhood restaurant - one of our go-to favorites. It was the first time for dinner for our guest and she was thrilled and happy with the food, service, the "vibe" of the place, and the overall impression was: Let's come back soon!
Excellent service and recommendations from our server Danny!
We are regulars at Crispina. This place is very well run. Provides good food. Our server was a new person at the cafe and was very attentive.
Love dining here - food, service and atmosphere always good.
I highly recommend Crispina restaurant every meal we’ve ever had was delicious the wait staff is attentive the owners seem to always be there it’s a great place to be the food is delicious it’s welcoming and that’s why we return often if you want to consistently delicious meal for a relatively reasonable price higher quality than most places this is a place I think you’ll enjoy
Waiter did not come back and ask if we wanted refills on our tea.
I had been wanting to try Crispina for a while now, as I've heard great things and their menu looked great. I was in the Vinings area so went to that one rather then the Kennesaw location. Well, we started out by ordering the meatball appetizer which is supposed to be served over ricotta cheese but they were out of ricotta so suggeted mozzerella cheese instead. The meatballs were quite delicious-great meat flavor, amazing marinara sauce but still think the ricotta would have been better. So next, we ordered the seafood sorrento only to have the server come back again and say that they were out of this item as well. We did enjoy our wonderful Italian wines and our ricotta cheese cake was to die for. Server was very nice and attentive. I think the manager or chef should have told the wait staff of the items they were out of ahead of time, as this would have lessened our disappointment. What we did have was delicious, therefore, going to give the Kennesaw location a try.
They only had 1 server for the entire restaurant on a busy Sunday lunch time. The server was nice, but there was only so much he could do.
Food was ok, nothing great.
Wish chairs were more comfortable, chair pads would help. Hopefully they will staff up in the future. Only one server for both outside and inside during lunch today (8 tables) but he was very conscientious.
We had a birthday with presents and no recognition was given
Always a wonderful experience. Courteous service, yummy food and nice atmosphere. What more could you ask for?
Andriana does a fabulous job. This is the perfect,neighborhood Italian restaurant.
Lobster ravioli was superb!!!! This was my second visit to this restaurant and it definitely didn’t disappoint!!!
We love crispina!!!
It was great.
The food was great! Sat on the patio and enjoyed the crisp fresh air.
We eat here regularly for years now right now our kitchen is out of commission due to water damage we have been eating here much more frequently now so we don’t just order our favorites we’ve been ordering everything and everything is always great every time I highly recommend this restaurant. My favorite is the Vieal Adriano, They have everything you could think of that you might would enjoy edits done to perfection I think you’ll enjoy this restaurant if you give it a try make a reservation so they know you’re coming they get busy because they’re very good very good
My Son selected this restaurant for his birthday dinner. The food was excellent and the service was great. We are already planning our next visit.
Excellent food, even better desserts!!
Crispina is always a great choice to eat excellent food and relax.
Offers optional inside or out side which is a great option.
First time for us, but this place is a keeper. Large portions, quality flavor, outstanding service.
The octopus main course was excellent. The tiramisu was the best we have had since our trips to Rome.
Always outstanding! Neighborhood gem
Terrific little Italian ristorante, great outdoor seating and patio area. The Pappardelle was scrumptious. $15 corkage fee, pretty typical for a place like this.
Veal and pasta entrees were outstanding, burrata extraordinary, dessert delicious and the Chianti Classico was lovely! Bravo!
We always have a consistently delicious meal when we dine at Crispina restaurant. I’m partial to the field Adriano and I prefer it with a side of sautéed spinach
Instead of pasta it usually comes with. On this visit my husband ordered the special which was the lobster ravioli with some scallops on the top and a creamy sauce and he loved it the only thing he said he would change is to add a few more raviolis. We share the caprice he salad which we normally do because that’s what my husband prefers and it was delicious as usual I don’t know where they get their basil and the tomatoes but they’re wonderful even in the dead of winter. The staff is always attentive if you need any cheese or pepper or whatever it may be it’s one of our favorite restaurants never let Disappoints which is what you really want is consistently great meals
Crispina is one our favorite go-to places to eat. It is usually consistently outstanding. Unfortunately this time the service was not up to par. However the food was still excellent and the atmosphere was extremely comfortable.
Enjoyed the experience. Excellent food, reasonable prices and pleasant service.
Food was good great spot.
Had to get up and ask manager 3 times for help.
1. Can we have waiter bring menu and take drink orders.
2. We asked for salt and pepper 10 minutes ago when our food arrived.
3. We finished our meal 15 minutes ago, may we please have a check.
I should have walked the meal.
A fav, “go-to” local restauring for my wife and I. Love the oven baked pizza!
Mother’s Day dinner was great.
Very small, crowded, not intimate at all.
The dinner portion sizes were equivalent to what would be a lunch portion size elsewhere.
Not a large selection of food or beverages. Took my son foe his birthday, he was not impressed at all.
Excellent food and great atmosphere, we will definitely be back
Crispina makes some of he best pizza in Atlanta and of course their full menu of great Italian dishes is superb as well.
Food was delicious, server could’ve had some personality & it was just extremely quiet
We enjoyed lunch here and had great service. We will be back.
