Celebrated my son ‘s 26 th Birthday there, great time all in all. The music was great just a little too loud which prevented conversation with any one at the table other than the person next to you. Service was great and food delicious. The price point however was a bit high!

Love this restaurant. But every time I go, I'm surprised by how expensive it is. I can't believe it was $400 for 4 adults and 2 children to have Italian comfort food.

Crowded, noisy, and slow service but still a lot of fun. Once the music starts the chaos begins and the well lubricated diners start the sing along to a classic drag show playlist. Food was good, not great but the ambiance, if you’re in the mood for it, makes up for any other shortcomings

A fun place to enjoy with friends good food and service with extensive wine list.
Restaurant breaks into party atmosphere late evening with party hats and music, etc.

We can’t wait to come back to town so we can dine there again. The staff is very welcoming and friendly and went over and beyond to be kind. The food was some of the best we’ve eaten in Atlanta after 28 years of traveling here. Highly recommend!

The food was superb! Personally, I loved the service of the attentive waiters, but my fate could have done with a lot less fuss. The noise in the main room was too loud for him given his hearing aid issues, but if you were in the mood for a crasy festive mood (they provide boas and feathered hats), it's great, otherwise, the back room is quieter and more romantic. Despite our differences, we both agree that the food was incredible!

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful date night here. The food was authentic and delicious. The owner came over to us several times throughout our meal to have friendly chitchat and to make sure we were enjoying ourselves and the food. A table of 6 Italians visiting the states were enjoying themselves and the food at the table behind us. Great experience and can't wait to go back!
