Food was excellent and it was a really cozy place. I just did not like how loud it was. Its a small place and people were really loud i could hardly hear the person i was with. Everything else was good. Excellent wine list.

Our waiter Randy was the best. Very concerned about making sure all the details were in order. We will certainly will ask for him in the future.

I've been to Pasta da Pulcinella many times before and always had a great experience. I chose this place for a first date but it was so loud in the restaurant that we couldn't even carry on a conversation. Seemed much louder than in past visits but it WAS a Friday night. Service this time was lackluster. The maitre d sat us at the time of our reservation then came back a couple minutes later and proceeded to move us because they forgot they already had that table reserved for someone else (not a big deal but still a little odd). And only one of us got a glass for water when we sat down. The waiter did come over initially before we had time to look at the menu but then seemed to forget we existed for quite some time afterward. We had to flag him down to get his attention when we were ready to order.

All in all, I still love the food and will go back (I never get tired of their signature ravioli dish). But I'll think twice next time considering how loud it was. This seems to be a trend with restaurants these days...make them as loud as possible so everyone has to scream to talk to the person(s) at the table with you.

Loved out dinner here. Food was unbelievably good! Celebrating a birthday and couldn’t be happier with out restaurant choice.

Only advice would be to get things worked out at the hostess stand before guests arrive, hostesses seemed flustered and tense.

When a place not only lives up to it's reputation but does so with the style and excellent service of Pasta di Pulcinella - I am happy to write a review and share my experience. Nice, fun, great food, tremendous service. A little loud, but most places now are and younger people seem to enjoy that.

Try it. You'll like it! (at least one person at your table needs to order the house specialty ravioli with apple and meat - incredible!)

The service and food are both amazing. It's crazy that after years of living in Atlanta that I just discovered this place. The best Italian food I have had outside of Italy. The staff is courteous and makes sure that everything is taken care of. I included in my reservation that we were celebrating a birthday in our party, and without asking they brought tiramisu with a candle. The entire experience was memorable and we'll be back! Make sure to try the Tortelli di Mele. It's incredible, trust me.

We had an excellent meal at Pasta da Pulcinella. We arrived early for our reservation, but they were able to accommodate us immediately, and another server covered for our table until our server, Cao arrived. Cao was gracious, informative, and the perfect host!

Lobster ravioli was outstanding. We got good service at first but when more tables were sat we had to wait a while for drinks and water refills. Very good prices for the location!!

Dined here with my wife to celebrate our anniversary after receiving an excellent recommendation from my cousin (who happens to be a food blogger). We enjoyed every aspect...from the quaint and romantic setting to the friendly wait staff and carefully crafted menu. The food was incredible, everything was served timely. My wife and I stayed awhile after enjoying our bottle of wine and dessert, but we never felt rushed and were left to enjoy our conversation until we were ready to leave. Absolutely recommend this place for a date night or special occasion!

They seemed to be very busy and understaffed. It took a while to get our cocktails.
Our waiter forgot our dessert order. He apologized. The service was just a little glitchy overall.
The food and food value is very good.
