Arrived maybe 15 minutes before my friends and the hostess would not seat me because my full party wasn’t present. I said I intended to get a drink and she said I could do that at the bar. The bar...really...4 seats, 2 occupied, 1 in the path of staff and the 4th held someone’s personal items. I clearly wasn’t happy with my initial treatment but eventually got seated, friends arrived right on time and we had an enjoyable evening. Our server Hannah was super nice and helped rescue the poor initial impression.

While I have eaten here several times before, usually on theater nights at the Alliance Theater, I brought 4 friends here for their first time for a get together. They really liked it. Service and food were excellent. Table was available before the reservation time.

We had a group of five for dinner on a Saturday night. We did have reservations, which I strongly recommend. The appetizers, meal, dessert and coffee were all exceptional. The noise level could get a bit much at times but nothing you can't deal with. I've been here a few times and have never been disappointed.

My husband and I found this place just by doing a Google search. The menu interested us and we wanted somewhere new where we could celebrate our 1st anniversary.
We were blown away with this place!
The food was AMAZING! The service was great! The ambiance was perfect!
I would highly recommend this place for a date night, special occasion or just a dinner with friends. You will not be disappointed!

Everything about our experience Pasta da Pulcinella was exceptional. Caprese mozzarella was fresh, the lobster ravioli exceptional, and the chef's bolognese even better. Pleasant, inviting ambience combined with well priced, authentic Italian cuisine. You won't be disappointed.

This is definitely one of my go-to places in Midtown. Great authentic atmosphere, attentive service and—most importantly—fantastic food! Our Executive team always takes colleagues here for a celebratory luncheon when one of us moves to another position in the company that involves leaving our hotel and everyone loves it. Plus it has a killer lunch menu. I would happily recommend them to anyone, and we frequently send our guests to them for a wonderful experience that is unique to Midtown. And the chicken saltimbucco (sure I misspelled that) is amazing!

Have always enjoyed this restaurant, as the food is exceptionally good and fairly priced. Service is good and hospitable. The new configuration with the bar next to the front entrance is a great move, as it makes the bar more accessible and the dining room flows well now, as well as having more tables.

My girlfriend and I dined here for NYE...our server (Hannah) was great, the other employees we chatted with while waiting to be seated were great as well. It was crowded but that was to be expected for the occasion. Another drawback was the limited menu for the evening which were not made aware of prior to arriving but we were advised that this too was only because it was NYE. Overall it was a great experience...great food, great experience

Absolutely horrible. Yes, the food is decent...but small portions. I went for my anniversary/New Year's Eve and wasn't told until I was seated that they wouldn't honor their normal menu and only had a $55 per person set menu. On top of that, I made a reservation and they overbooked. They put a random table near the kitchen in the middle of server highway. Not one second past that there wasn't a server running back and forth on BOTH sides of our table. In addition, with them overbooking and adding random tables, the noise level was unbearable. Romantic, NO. Reasonable food for the $170 spent for 2 people, NO. I was looking forward to some of the items on their normal menu, but NOPE...couldn't order anything else not on the set menu. Just sad and disappointed. They pushed people out to turn tables and it was an all-around bad experience and they don't deserve business when they can't execute the service an anniversary and New Year's Eve dinner deserves. I made a simple request on my reservation to write "Happy Anniversary" on the desert plate; the hostess said they wouldn't be able to even do that. Just horrible service.

This place was great! After looking at the menu, I still didn't know what to get because everything sounded incredible. We ended up going for New Year's Eve, so the decision was partially made for us because they offered a prix fixe meal for the occasion. My boyfriend ordered the arugula salad with craisins and grana padano (one of my favorite cheeses!) and I got the cremini mushroom soup with mascarpone for our first course. The main course was veal osso buco over saffron risotto and the tortelli di mele, their specialty. The tortelli were AMAZING! They're filled with parmesan, Granny Smith apples, and chicken sausage and did not disappoint. Our dessert was tiramisu and vanilla creme brulee. The food was great, the service was great, and it's a really romantic spot. 10/10!!!

Good, but not great. We found the food to be average - had the ravioli appetizer, very very garlicky. My husband had their signature sausage ravioli dish - good, but very rich. I had the tortellini with chicken. The food was fine, but nothing I would go out of my way for or recommend to someone. Service was great - they were about 20 mins behind on reservations, but were nice and comped us each a glass of wine as we waited.

Really nice vibe with great service and excellent value. My wife and I each had a nice glass of wine, salad, entree and dessert and tab was less than $90. Food was delicious with reasonable range of choices. Not overly ambitious just really tasty , fairly simple dishes.

The dish I ordered was not what I thought it would be but drinks and appetizers were satisfying.

Quiet, relatively small Italian restaurant in midtown Atlanta on Peachtree Walk, between 14th and 10th. Excellent dishes to pick from, very good pricing, excellent service ( Meg was our server- from Colorado here to get into the movie business), parking across the street , get your reservations on Open Table-a must!

We brought the family for a late Christmas Eve dinner. They were so nice when we were running late and let us come even though they were about to close. No one rushed us, the food was delicious and when we couldn’t decide on a dessert to share for the table, our server brought us a slab of chocolate cake and five forks — on the house. We haven’t been here in years but PP is now on our regular restaurant rotation.

The restaurant is not handicap accessible. There are at least 3 -4 steps to get into the restaurant. Be aware of this before making reservations. If you have trouble going up/down stairs or are in a wheel chair, I would highly recommend going to a different restaurant.
