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.

The food was great; our table attendant (Danni) was enthusiastic, well informed and made for a pleasant evening. However, the man at the reception desk questioned our reservations and showed an uncaring approach in dealing with us. We’ve dined here many times and the first time we’ve experienced this man.

The food was pretty good. The service was horrible. The owner, when told that a pizza that came out late came out completely wrong haf the nerve to tell my mother who cares because people are dying. His attitude just kept getting worse and irs clear to see where the staff got it from.

Quality of food not what it was before the pandemic.

Bread slightly undercooked dry and cold

Veal dish dry with no “ sauce” or butter & capers over pasta. So plain - felt so dry Made it difficult to chew and swallow! Had to swap entree with date.

Ravioli and shrimp were Great!!!
Wedge salad excellent.

Caesar salad lettuce felt very wilted except for the white crunchy pieces.

Love this place so much - hope they get the quality back in all dishes.

Our meal started out rocky. We arrived on time for our reservation and the nervous host told us we had a wait for an inside table. We were fine with that. The bartender ignored us for an entire 30 minutes. Didn't clear the previous guests glasses, didn't approach us, didn't acknowledge us at all. The manager (owner?) gave what appeared to be preferential treatment to another party, which again, was fine. Danielle was our server and she did make up for our rocky start! Made great recommendations on the menu. The food was very good. Not having salt and pepper on the table seemed odd, and we did have to wait for it. There was a child nearby playing a video game very loudly and she did ask them to lower the volume which we very much appreciated. Our food was very good. This was our first time and I would definitely go back. The wood fired pizza and homemade pastas were quite tasty. The wine list wasn't great and we didn't find dessert we wanted to try.

We had a late reservation but arrived about 30 minutes early. We were seated 8 minutes after we got there. Everyone was knowledgeable and helpful. The manager came to our table when he found out it was our first time. He gave a brief history of the restaurant and made a couple of recommendations. They were spot on! They had a non-alcoholic beer (Becks NA) which is very good. The manager said the mussels and calamari appetizer was good. It was not, it was incredible! All was good. To top it off they brought out a cheesecake with caramel drizzle for dessert. Fantastic! A wonderful dining experience, we will be back.

disappointed in several areas.
Salads ordered gluten-free, w/o croutons, had to be sent back.
Salad ordered dressing-on-side, was not.
Entrees all came out at different times.
Gluten-free pasta was too "chewy".
Birthday dessert ordered in advance was forgotten
(it was to be a surprise, so did not want to ask it be brought out)
Out of several items on menu, that were of interest to several in party.
Not on my list of must-go-back-to any time soon.

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.

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!

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.
