Pasta da Pulcinella is my favorite restaurant in midtown. Service, food and atmosphere are all excellent.
We really appreciate your loyalty and thank you for the great review!!
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.
First, thank you for the feedback. We are sorry to hear you did not completely enjoy the experience. Yes, our space is limited, and while we do have an outdoor waiting area, in this cold weather it is not entirely useable. So, we thank our guests for their understanding.our usual waiting. We do hope you will give us another try so we can find something more to your liking.
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!
And we love having you!! Many thanks for the great comments. Hurry back!!
Loved everything about Pasta da Pulcinella. Can't wait to return!
We look forward to seeing you again. Thanks so much for writing!!
Everything was great! The lobster ravioli is to die for. Our waiter, Robin was super attentive and fun. Overall a great place to go!
Many thanks for the kind words. On behalf of Robin, it was our pleasure serving you.
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!
Welcome back, as always!! And, we very much appreciate the kind words. On behalf of LInne, your server/bartender, we thank you for visiting. Hurry back!!
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...
We appreciate the great review and we are sorry about the mix up at your table (kind of a funny story, however!). Always our pleasure serving our Mart friends . . . and we look forward to your next visit!!
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 .
First, we appreciate the candid feedback. We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy your meals, but glad the wine hit the spot! We hope you will give us a second try and see if we can find something more to your liking.
Enjoyed my second visit to this midtown eatery. Thanks for accommodating a last-minute reservation.
Thank you so much for the review and welcome back! It was our pleasure serving you. See you soon!!
Always awesome place.
Great to hear from you. Thanks!!
Food and service were great. Seating could have been better. There were 3 of us, and given a small table against the wall. I didn’t really appreciate that.
Thanks for taking the time to give us important feedback. It was our pleasure serving you. Yes, our space is limited, and we do stay quite busy, so we appreciate your patience. Please give us another try and let us find you a table more to your liking. See you soon!!
Tucked-away on a side street, this hidden gem is a great dining destination. Food and service is exceptional. Quaint interior makes you feel as though you're inside someone's home. Reasonable prices and a variety of food options make this place a favorite.
Terrific comments...so, thank you! We really appreciate the review. Please visit us again soon!!
Wonderful as always.
Service and drinks were good. Risotto was flavorless, white rice with a couple chunks of salmon. Very bizarre. Other meals at the table were underwhelming as well.
We appreciate the feedback and that you took the time to write. It was our pleasure serving you. Please do give us another try so we can find something more to your liking.
Excellent meal and reasonably priced. Excellent service for all age-groups in a multi-generational family. My new favorite Italian restaurant in Atlanta.
And for that we thank you very much!! See you next time.
This charming restaurant is a hidden gem in Midtown. The staff is attentive and courteous. The food was outstanding!
Thank you so much for your great comments. We enjoyed serving you. Please visit us again!!
Great spot for birthday celebration!
Great to hear. Thanks!
This place is VERY tight. We were sat in between 2 tables and it felt as if all 3 of our tables were having dinner together. Not the best for a romantic evening. No privacy at all
Thank you for the feedback (and the 4-star review!). We hope you enjoyed your meals. Yes, our space is limited and we do stay quite busy, so we thank you for your understanding.
Carl was great! Excellent suggestions and caring service! I will be back!
Carl thanks you and we do, too!! Appreciate your business.
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...
We are terribly sorry to hear of this experience and hope your boyfriend is doing well. We take all reasonable precautions to avoid such situations, and we encourage anyone with allergies to notify your server in advance of ordering. All our best in 2020.
Thanks very much!!
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!
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!!
A staple and always the best experience.
Thank you very much!!
Amazing as always, although table for 4 gets a bit cramped
Thank you for sharing the feedback. Hope to see you again soon.

One of our favorite Italian restaurants - moderately priced, cozy and good wine list.
We appreciate your comments. Thanks very much!
Excellent service; appreciated the good wine descriptions and recommendations from our waiter. Food was fabulous!
We appreciate the nice review. Thanks for your business!!
Always a pleasure. Treated my work team to a holiday lunch. Great experience all the way around. Great food, great atmosphere, great service. The Tortelli Di Mele is fantastic! Would highly recommend this place for a date night as well.
We appreciate the kind words and your continued loyalty. Hope to see you again very soon!!
Very small place with a small bar but great food & service. Place is always packed.
Thanks for visiting and for sharing your thoughts. It was our pleasure serving you!!
I eat at PdP at least once a week and ALWAYS find the service, atmosphere, and meal to be exceptional! The chicken ravioli is incredible and their lunch specials are the best meal in town. Highly recommended.
What a terrific testimonial. Thank you very much!! Look forward to serving you again.
Always a great experience. The food is consistently fabulous!
Many thanks for those kind words!!
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!!
