Homemade pastas and sauces make the difference. Wood fired pizza with interesting combinations of flavors. Nice selection of Italian wines.

Our family had a very nice dinner outing at Crispina. Service was good. The food is authentic Italian with plentiful portions. We enjoyed the scallops, veal (Adrienne?) and a couple of the pasta selections. Everything was tasty and we plan to dine at Crispina again one day soon.

We really enjoyed the food except the Calamari. It was good but not our favorite calamari. It’s really a nice place, very family oriented. A little more ambiance and dimmer lighting would make this more of a special place. Our server was knowledgeable and very efficient.

Passing through the area overnight, we have found an Italian restaurant we’ll look forward to visiting again. The selection of homemade pastas was wonderful, chicken and veal are well-represented, the marinara sauce is delicious, and the gorgeous wood-burning oven turns out pizzas and baked dishes. ‘Loved this place!

The bread put on our table was fair, the olive oil on table for bread dipping had a bitter finish, the pepper shaker barely worked.
The “meatballs” was one giant meatball sitting on bread with not enough sauce and was bland.
The house salad, not listed in salad section but under sides, was very fresh and very good with excellent balsamic dressing, the penne pasta was excellent with the perfect al dente texture but the bolognese sauce was dry, the desert menu was dark and hard to read because they turned the lights down at 8pm, the trio bruschetta had god crusty and toasty bread- tomato basil was so salty we could not eat it, the eggplant caponata was good, the roasted peppers and sausage was good despite the absence of any visible sausage, the cannoli’s were excellent. Service was good except drink refills were slow. Overall was fair and you could probably learn over time what not to order, but we were not wowed enough to go back.

First time at this location. Very impressed with the wait staff, the quality of the food, and especially the pacing of the dining experience. We went with sort of tried and true menu items. But they were done very well. Our wait person was outstanding.

We received excellent food and service at the Kennesaw location. Our party had the Veal Adriano and the salmon. Both were delicious. The caesar salads and the panna cotta dessert were also wonderful. The waiter was extremely attentive and we enjoyed the ability to sit back and relax during the meal. Nice wine list. We had a great Barbera wine. I will definitely return.

We had a wonderful date night at Crispina! My veal parmigiana was perfect and a big portion. My wife had the lasagna that was also very good. We started out with calamari that was lightly breaded which we like a lot. It also came with zucchini and peppers that made the dish. The service was incredible as always. Crispina also has a Vinings location that we frequent regularly. I would recommend getting a meal at either restaurant!

Family dinner for Father’s Day.
Waiter was unfriendly and inattentive. Forgotten drink order and incorrect dish were icing on the cake to his poor attitude. Sadly we will not be returning to this establishment.

Food was very good - I was pleasantly surprised at how fresh the seafood was - much better than some of the chain restaurants on the same street. Unfortunately some things were overlooked from a service perspective, but we were informed they were short-staffed, as so many restaurants are right now. I would try again and certainly recommend take out.

We had a hard time finding a parking spot. We were greeted and seated right away. Our waitress was very knowledgeable. She told us that they were baking fresh bread and it would be out in a few minutes. Fifteen minutes later our hot bread arrived. It was good, crunchy crust. When we ordered I asked if I could just order the lobster ravioli special without scallops. Our waitress checked and said that I could. My husband also wanted to change a sauce and they said no problem. We also had tiramisu which was very good. Overall food was very good. We will go back.

The service is "okay." The food is "meh." The atmosphere is "okay." But it's the only place with available tables with little wait on a Friday or Saturday nite.

Have eaten here several times. This best, most consistent item is the soup and the pizza. Everything else will be variable to poor.

Last night the "marinated/seasoned" grilled chicken on my wife's salad was like strips of leather. The "medium well" grilled salmon on my salad was like sushi (and I know how salmon is supposed to be slightly pink - this was not that).

Seems like a case of absentee ownership and middle-of-the-road management. So, just know what you're in-for: a place to sit, functional service, and inconsistent food.

Liam gave us great service. We enjoyed the Chicken Piccata and Margarita Pizza. The outdoor ceiling fans were operating keeping us comfortable on the patio. Crispina is an excellent value including the wine list. I recommend
