 (Atlanta)·Dined a day ago

Everything was fine but I expected better from the reviews. The Calamari was a bit underwhelming on flavor until I squeezed the lemon on top. The sauce on the side was very good though. My pasta could have used more shrimp since I paid extra to add it on. You get way more meat when you add on the chicken than when you do the shrimp. My friend and I got the same Basic Linguini with the Garlic Cream Sauce, however her pasta lacked some of the sauce and mine had too much. I had to give her some of my pasta sauce so her pasta wouldn’t be so dry. Our server was great. The ambiance was cute but seating was a little tight in our area. We will trying again on a weeknight one day in hopes of a little more consistency with our food. But overall, it was good.

Once again, we stopped here on the way to the theater for a great meal. My wife had the sausage filled ravioli, a menu stalwart. My meal was a daily special of smoked salmon, tomatoes in a light cream sauce. Hannah's service was excellent.

We arrived before opening and they graciously let us in. We were having dinner before the Fox and they were very timely in getting our dinner out without making us feel we were being rushed to get out. Food was fabulous as was the service. We will definitely go again

We stopped in for dinner prior to seeing a show at the Fox. It was a perfect location in a charming little house several blocks away. The ambiance is really the star of the shoe. Server was great. Food was good. Wine was nicely chosen Italian selections at reasonable prices. We would be very happy to come back here again!

My wife and I call this "our place" whenever we tell other people about it. We fell in love with atmosphere, menu and your location being tucked away around the skyscrapers of Midtown. We have never been disappointed in your service and recommendations for drinks and food. Our most recent visit (and third visit) was to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary and this was the first time we sat indoors. (I will admit that we were kind of disappointed that we could not sit outside on the patio, because that's the only place we have always sat when dining here. We love the patio area.) But of course, the inside did not disappoint our dining experience, it just made it more memorable. Thank-you again.

This was our second visit taking my parents from out-of-town. The hostess remembered us from four months ago, and sat us at the same table, where we were served by the same waiter, who also remembered us. The staff is charming and nice, as is the atmosphere. The food was delicious. We will definitely be back!

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.

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.
