What a nice surprise to find such an excellent, non-trendy restaurant in the heart of MidTown.

Was there this past Saturday. Haven't been here in a few years. The food was good and the atmosphere was wonderful. I'm glad the place was busy. This is a gem that many people don't know about.

Perfection on a plate. This is my go to place in midtown. I love to treat everything there as a shared plate because everyone at the table should be able to taste the delicious food. You must get the apple and sausage ravioli.

I have never had a disappointing experience and this has become my favorite Atlanta restaurant. It’s our go to for date night before a show. The ravioli is always my favorite.

Great pasta at a good price point. The restaurant is in an old house so it's a bit tight, but that just makes it cozy. The noise level isn't too bad even when it's packed. This is one of my favorite restaurants in Atlanta.

We normally go to this restaurant on a week night to avoid crowds. However, road work made us half an hour late. The restaurant was informed and they held out table. Very lively due to a large crowd - on a Tuesday night of all things. Plan to go back when road work ceases.

I had eaten here during a business trip and loved it so I wanted to take my fiance to enjoy what I had been bragging about. It was a tad chilly out and the dining room was still full at 8:30pm so we braved the cold outside and it was so nice and romantic. We sat next to a gas firepit which kept us warm while we sipped wine and enjoyed the the ambiance, peace and quiet. The food and service was superb!

Such a charming spot!! Andt the staff was very attentive and gracious.. Howeever, the food was just "fine", not memorable, which is what I would have expected from the intimate and picturesque interior. I had the bolognese and my friend had the chicken marsala. We were each "meh" about our dish - we were not swept away. We enjoyed the overall experience, but the food was not something that we would rush back for.

BY FAR one of the BEST Italian restaurants I have been to in the city. Pasta da Pulcinella provides a cozy environment, extensive wine selection, a plethora of wonderful dishes, and a friendly and welcoming staff. Our waiter was Benjamin and he did a FANTASTIC job. He was honest, attentive, and gave great recommendations. I HIGHLY recommend the Tortelli di Mele, the housemade signature dish, which paired well with our Pinot Noir. The price point was fair as well. Overall a great experience!

Beginning to end- great spot. Cozy in an old home turned restaurant. We sat outside on a beautiful November evening on the patio under a magnolia tree and bistro lights- so romantic. Food was delish, dessert was wonderful, service was spot on.

Friday lunch. I always love the place, but today the service was somewhat slow and I think my food sat under the heat lamp too long because it was a little dry. Waiter was very pleasant but they may have been a bit under-staffed. All is forgiven, though, it is still one of my favorites!

I believe that the parking alternatives are too expensive. The restaurant needs to strike a deal with a lot to reduce the $8 evening fee.

Four of us went on a very busy evening before going to Cirque Luzia. The restaurant did an amazing job and I would highly recommend them to anybody. Our waiter was ‘Robin’ and he provided easily the best service we’ve had at any restaurant this year.

I love the new set up with the bar as you walk in...much less awkward than the way it was with the bar in the middle of the restaurant. Nice! Four of us for lunch...all had pasta dishes which were tasty. Good and reasonably priced wines. Very nice and attentive service. Have gotten to know Tana over the years and she is always gracious. What a gem. Highly recommend.

This is a cozy spot that is unique in all the right ways. It is not a slick, cookie-cutter midtown restaurant. Instead, it's located off the main drag in a quaint and rustic small house. There is a beautiful deck for dining outdoors. The service is excellent, and so is the food.
