Mirko Pasta serves up a bounty of flavorful dishes. Its cheery setting is ideal for enjoying a meal with the entire family. Owner, as well as chef, Mirko Di Giacomantonio immigrated from Tortoreto Italy where he was taught to cook by his grandmother and believes in bringing quality food created with locally sourced ingredients to the table. Patrons can start their meal with a creamy tomato soup or a fresh grilled salmon salad with cranberries. Rigatoni, tagliatelle or butternut squash ravioli with a choice of house-made sauces will tantalize the taste buds at Mirko Pasta. Patrons can also try an entrée of chicken marsala or pan-seared grouper.
Mirko Pasta offers authentic Italian gelato, crepes with fresh strawberries and other sweet treats to complement a meal. It provides catering services that includes a prix fixe menu and can accommodate a group of 40 for private events.
We each ordered pasta and sauce which was good. The bread they brought to dip in the bean/olive oil dipping sauce was stale. Other visits were better than this one.
Great find in a strip mall, would never think the food would be this excellent. All homemade pasta's, organic chicken, fresh vegetables, even an organic wine and some gluten free items. We had the Eggplant Parmigiana and the Champagne Chicken special. Both were excellent, and of course we over indulged in a side pasta dish, which was also Superb. If you are a fan of cheesecake, theirs is a nice blend between light and fluffy and the think New York style. Our server Brandon was also excellent - made great suggestions, including the bottle of wine on special.
Love this place. Never had a bad meal. I need to start trying something new each time but I keep coming back to the Mare sauce! Service was attentive and patient.
Great, as always. Does not ever disappoint... Food was great as usual. Service is always good. Managers are always accommodating. Specials are always creative, savory/delicious. It's a very friendly, family feel restaurant. I would and do suggest it to all my friends and family. I take everyone to Mirko's with me. We always hold birthday lunches/dinners at Mirko and all other types of occassions.
The food was excellent, the servicewas not quite equal. Thankfully they use runners to bring food as it is ready, but our main server was distracted alot. I would certainly go back and enjoy the great weather eating outside.
Great food, unfortunately our waiter kept missing... from silverware, to refilling waters and handed the check without offering dessert menu, which we had intended to try... but left.
Nice to have homemade pasta and sauces, and they are well done. The amount of food is generous for the price. Went to the Marietta location, don't know if there are other locations or not.
This was our third visit to Mirko. The food at Mirko is good. We had some service issues during our last visit and unfortunately they were out of steak.
Food of this quality at a high-end place in Buckhead would be on the price level of Nino's, Pricci and others. The quality is great, it is indeed made in-house.
What happened to the Sausage, Sage and Apple ravioli?!?!
The flavors were sooo good and with a bolognaise sauce, it is a hearty dish we LOVED and built for for any appetite! I have always raved about their food and at this quality - it would cost more at any other place in Buckhead. THANK YOU MIRKO for being a place we love and eat at often! If you need to raise your prices but please bring back my favoriate!
Food is very good . Service is lacking. Servers would appear to be more suited to fast food joints. The is no pepper on the tables only salt.
Monday night wine special was advertised as " get a bottle for the price of a glass". When we got there the server said wine was half price. Still a special price but not as advertised.
Wonderful place to meet friends. Food was amazing, fresh, delicious.
As soon as we walked in for our reservation, on time, we were told by the hostess (in a 'matter of fact way') that we'd have to "wait 15 minutes because we don't accept reservations made in last 1 hour." I made the reservation about 40-45 min in advance and drove to East Cobb from Downtown ATL. They should specifically STATE this on their Opentable page or not let the guest book within 1 hour prior. My wife and I were starving, so to be asked to wait 20 minutes for a table was unacceptable. I'll try this franchise again one more time (I believe in second chances), but in a different location, and only because the food looked pretty good. We had a drink at the bar and left to go to Zeal next door, who fit us in despite being very busy.
Our last experience at Mirko certainly not what we have come to expect from this normally competent restaurant. We began the evening by ordering an appetizer of mussels. When our waitress returned some 20 minutes later to take our entree order, we noted the the appetizer had not arrived, and we did not want our appetizer and entrees to arrive at the same time. She assured is they would not. However, the cold, over cooked mussels arrived not 10 seconds before the entrees. They took the mussels back. My salmon was so overdone that I could hardly eat it with a fork. Our waitress said they had been having "trouble in the kitchen". I could tell. My wife's pasta was decent, but the salmon was the worst piece of fish I have ever been served.
Mirko does a great job. If you had food of this quality at a high-end place in Buckhead it would be on this price level of Nino's, Pricci and others. The quality is great, it is indeed made in-house and the quality is there.... What happened to the Sausage, Sage and Apple ravioli?!?! The flavors were sooo good and with a bolognaise sauce, it is a hearty dish we LOVED and built for for any appetite! I have always raved about their food and at this quality - it would cost more at any other place in Buckhead. THANK YOU MIRKO for being a place we love and eat at often!

My friend and I enjoyed our dinner at Mirko's this past Monday. We had dined there several times before and always look forward to the next meal there. The restaurant is always clean and the staff is attentive and knowledgeable. The ability to choose one's pasta and sauce combination is fun. We both found our pasta and sauce selections to be excellent as was the wine. Our server, Brittany, was excellent.
I have already recommended Mirko's to relatives and work associates.
Take Homemade Pasta, with fresh ingredients and you get Mirkos. The menu is vast for a neighborhood restaurant, and the wine selection is very good. The wait staff is attentive and polite. Reservations are a must, as it gets busy.
Thank you for great food, great service. We'll be back.
I normally do not have very high expectations when dining in a strip mall eatery, but this place is well above average. I really wasn't familiar with the name so it was an accidental find, GREAT food, very nice staff, and a real value. From the artisan bread, to the hand made pasta. Lunch for $7-8 bucks, dinner from $11-15, WOW! It's nice to go out and have a really nice meal for 2 without it costing $50.00 plus drinks.
We've been here five times already this year and had good experiences every time. The food is truly Italian, their sauces are claimed to be made fresh daily and indeed taste like that. Their lasagne is one of the tastiest i've had so far in a restaurant. They have specials which taste great as weel, my spouse had lobster today and it was quite impressive. The setting is quite casual, so not really for celebration or something, but very suitable for regular dining. They have promo's on weekdays (bottle of wine for price of a glass on Mondays and kids dining for free on Wednesdays). Service differs, depending on how busy the place is and of course also on people.
Food & service excellent as always. I take my friends with me all the time. They are fans of Mirko's too.
