We waited 45 minutes to be seated for our reservation in a noisy, uncomfortable space between the bar and front door. It got worse when a table for 8 tried to squeeze their way out, simultaneously jockeying for parking validations, creating even more of a human logjam which the waitstaff could have pre-empted with forethought and proper training. And although I ordered an appetizer and a ravioli entrée that were both heartily recommended by our server, neither was special at all. Same for my friend’s Mahi. But I heard the Caesar salad was really good.

Pasta da pulcinella is the most quaint little Italian restaurant. In an old house, the character of the restaurant is amazing. The food, even more amazing. Our table shared 2 bottles of pinot noir, ceasar salads all around, 3 orders of chicken parm, and my personal fav, taglietelle with the "special" bolognese. Just plain love!

I've been eating here since discovering this gem about three years ago. Love it. The good is delicious. Great service- shout out to our server who also tends bar (can't remember her name-sorry). I visit Atlanta twice a year forthe Atlanta market and it's super busy and crowded- the staff go out of there way to make the dining experience a lovely one. Excellent!

Each time we are at Atlanta Market we eat at this fabulous cosy Italian restaurant. And each time food & service great! This time the same except for a funny time with waiter who thought we had eaten entrees & cleated table! It was packed- no harm done - we got our entrees! A nice wine list here and you feel like you are hanging with locals...

I made a reservation based on Tripadvisor reviews - but overall we were all disappointed in the food . I had a Caeser salad which had too much dressing - my wife and cousin had Arugula Salad which they both said was very good - and a nice size portion. I had the Lobster Ravioli - there was not much flavor and the fish that was inside tasted more like crab(maybe imitation crab) than lobster - I would not recommend it. My wife had the chicken cannaloni which she said was ok , not much flavor. My brother had chicken tortellini which was the best dish we ordered. The best part of the meal was the Katherine Goldschmidt Cabernet- not bad for $49 . We met my cousin who came in from out of town - it was very difficult to hear - extremely loud inside .

I love this place...this restaurant has become "our" place but unfortunately we had a situation with cross contamination...my boyfriend is allergic to shellfish & neither one of us order anything with seafood...he started to feel sick with bad stomach pains after we ate the appetizers & it was unbearable by the time he finished his entree,so we got the dessert to go...By the time we made it home his chest was closing up, his dark skin was red & breaking out, he was having a hard time breathing..i had to rush him to the ER...we spend midnight flying down 75 south trying to save his life...They rushed him back & gave him a whole lot of meds. We ended up leaving there around 5am...He's on steroids for 5 days cuz he was still swollen up in a few places...but outside of that, we still love the place...just gotta make sure that we act them to be very careful from now on...

My only negative feedback concerns the price of the fixed price menu, which was $55. Granted, it was New Year’s Eve but the combined cost was much more $ than the items are priced individually on the restaurant’s daily menu. The three separate courses would only add up to around $35-$40 or so. That said the food was delicious!

Pasta da Pulcinella
Responded on January 3, 2020

Thanks for taking the time to write. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your meals! We advertised the price for the fixed menu ahead of time to try and avoid any surprises. Our goal was to strike a balance and offer variety on the menu. As with any fixed menu, the value did depend on which of the three selections you made, for example, the grilled lobster or grilled ribeye steak tend to be the pricier items. Thanks again for visiting and Happy New Year!!

Generally, the food was good. The ambience was good as well. I know they have no control of what goes on outside, but the constant construction and the difficulty it took to get to the restaurant because of it Was a turn off. The dessert menu was very good diverse, but the cannolis were dry and the crème brûlée was not very tasty.

We appreciate that you took the time to give us the feedback. Yes, the traffic and construction in the Midtown area is something we all have to cope with. It is our hope that the experience we provide makes the travel worthwhile! Our guests can park at the Moxy Atlanta Midtown hotel (around the corner at the intersection of Peachtree Walk and 13th Street) for up to 2 hours for only $6 (instead of the usual $16). Just bring your ticket to us for validation. Thanks again for visiting!!
