Italian
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.

We went to try this restaurant a couple of weeks ago, it was so good that we wanted to go back last week but couldn’t get a reservation & had to wait to return till this week. It was just a great. This is going to be our new regular restaurant in our rotation of places we love it go to eat. We haven’t tried the pizza yet, so hopefully that will be the next visit. We met the owner to complement his restaurant & he asked us if we had tried the pizza yet. We admitted we completely repeated our first order from our original trip there a couple weeks before because it was just that good. In fact I would say that it will feel like a risk to even try something else because we were so looking forward to getting what made us want to return. Anyway I highly recommend this hidden gem in our community. It was so delicious both visits.

Can always count on Crispina for the best wood fired pizza. A family friendly restaurant with excellent Italian food. Love coming here.

We were all very impressed with the quality of the food and wine, and with the service. We ordered the bruschetta trio and three different pasta disjes. The short rib ravioli special was amazing! And with the Monday wine special, we got an excellent bottle of wine for a surprisingly low price. It was a fantastic meal.

This is some of the best authentic Italian in Atlanta, and by far the best pizza in Atlanta. This place completely blows away Antico's, Varasano’s, O4W Pizza, etc. The owner is also extremely personable and takes service very seriously to ensure a great overall dining experience. He also has a great drinks (wine, liquor / liquors, and mixed drinks) and dessert selection. Prices are also extremely good for the quality of the food / service. I cannot recommend trying this place enough.

Our overall experience with only fair. The calamari was extremely greasy and served with a marinara that had red pepper flakes don’t all on top. The wedge salad was saturated interesting that tasted primarily like mayonnaise. We shared a pasta dish which was drowned in a heavy cream sauce. It was lukewarm and had very little flavor. Our server was excellent but I will not return.

Unfortunately they did nothing for my mother’s 70th birthday. They must have forgotten although I noted it in the reservation.
I was very disappointed. I had asked for a special dessert which I wanted to pay for & nothing was done. You should read the notes in the reservation if you’re going to ask if it’s a special occasion.

Great local Italian restaurant. The pasta is homemade. The fried pizza and calzone are tasty and a unique option here in Atlanta. Don’t be put off by its location in a shopping center!

The food just ought to be better than it is. It's not bad, but not worth going out of one's way for. The food is fine; I've yet to have a meal that I think is anything better than that. The restaurant is a perfectly ok choice if you're in the neighborhood.

Nice Italian restaurant in Vinings where the number of quality options for non-chain food are actually pretty limited. Have been here before and went early so as to make a later movie. Restaurant was not full at time of arrival.
Service is prompt and professional.
Beer and wine list are nice. Not huge but would not expect so from a relatively small establishment.
Ordered bruschetta for appetizer which took FOREVER to arrive. Waiter eventually said that our order had gotten lost in the kitchen. Time to table was easily over 30 minutes. The toast was burnt even if the toppings were quite good.
The main courses were tasty and plentiful. Impossible to finish the lasagna in one sitting.
Was expecting that given the amount of time it took, either the bruschetta or a beverage would be comp'd but not so. They did not offer and I did not ask.
Overall, decent value for the meal. Will be back but not necessarily soon.

Although we enjoyed excellent service and the rest of my party had a good experience, my meal was very poor. I do not recommend ever ordering the Baked Calzone as it was baked beyond necessary and the crust was as hard as a stone and the interior ingredients were less than appetizing.

First time here, love real Italian and this restaurant didn't dissapontment us. Lots of wait staff to keep you happy. Chairs could have been a little more comfortable was the only dissapontment.

Found this little gem while visiting Atlanta for Braves game. Food was outstanding, service was very friendly and efficient - waiter had nice sense of humor, and was attentive without being intrusive. Our party of 4 all had various pastas - all were wonderful, but as we shared bites, all agreed the lobster pasta special was FABULOUS.
Pizza being delivered to nearby table also looked delicious - and wine list was very nice. it was a bit noisier than I hoped ( it was tagged "quiet") , but not overwhelmingly so, especially at prime dining hour. Patio looked very inviting, but simply was too hot to venture out there. Maybe next time, because we will be back!

This was a girl’s night out dinner, nothing special just a good meal and chit chat but it turned into a very unpleasant evening. I made a reservation and arrived on time, the host was wonderful and friendly but our server was out of what not to do.

We had to ask if there were any specials and she (Alex) keep disappearing. We asked for balsamic vinegar with our salads but Alex never provided it. Thankfully another server was kind enough to get it for us.

Once our entrees were delivered I found that the salmon I ordered was a little dry so I asked our server for some of the sauce noted on the menu, it was then that she provided a side of balsamic vinegar and disappeared again. When she reappeared I told her what she brought was pure vinegar and not what was listed on the menu, at this point she stated that she didn’t know what it was, she didn’t work in the kitchen. I decided to just eat the meal provided as is and vowed to not be return customer.

I’m writing this review in hindsight because the restaurant was not busy the only excuse our server had for her unprofessional behavior was laziness and it isn’t fair to future customers if her actions are not reported so corrective measures can be taken,

I had lunch with a friend from out of town. She ordered the Caesar salad which she said was delicious & I ordered the Pappardelle Pompeii. The pasta was tender, the sausage were seasoned perfectly. The lentil soup was the best I have had in a while. Kudos to the chef

All of our dishes were tasty, but our pasta dishes were especially good. Restaurant has a nice homey, Italian feel and food seems to be pretty authentic. Highly recommended for a casual Italian dining experience with a nice ambiance and great food.
