Storico Fresco has now fully morphed into a true Italian Alimentari e Ristorante that started in a basement in Atlanta …

We had a dream to bring traditional and nearly lost Italian dishes to Atlanta. The result: Storico Fresco Alimentari, quite simply an Italian grocery store and restaurant in one. We’ve gone beyond and created a true Italian experience for you to enjoy. We use locally sourced ingredients to craft our authentic dishes.

Food wine everything is fantastic. Too loud in the dining room but that’s just the nature of a crowded bustling restaurant.

Always consistently excellent. What a jewel of a neighborhood restaurant to be able walk to. Authentic Italian. And what a plus to have coolers of prepped meals and pastas to take home.

Great food & wonderful atmosphere. We sat on the porch. Even though it was chilly outside we were warm & cozy. We shared several dishes. Perfect for a girls night out.

Great atmosphere and very tasty food. The service was okay. Not very fast at even being greeted or given water (took about 15 minutes after being seated to get water and then 5 more minutes before a waiter), but luckily the food was excellent.

Way too noisy to have a conversation. All guests were yelling at each other to be heard. Music added to the din. Food was average.

Pasta was bland, my husband is a chef and we make pasta all the time and read how great the pasta was here but both our pastas were missing salt and didn’t seem to have enough egg. The octopus was AMAZING and the artichoke was great as well but really let down on the pasta itself. Maybe try again later maybe we just came on a bad night.

I love this restaurant. It is one of my favorite Italian spots in Atlanta. The pasta is always made fresh and the food is always excellent. Some of the best bolognese you can get!

The atmosphere is super cool and you are in the middle of all the action! Best fried artichoke hearts ever and other-worldly Cacio y Pepe. Great wine list.

Jam packed for dinner and deafening noise
Food arrive quickly but fried squash blossoms were not crisp and cheese on pork meatballs was coagulated. Branzino was flavorful and special pasta 60 yolk mushrooms and truffle butter was rich but missing intensity of mushrooms. V fun wine by the glass selection

Everything about Storico is MAGIC. What Pietro and staff have been able to do is unmatched by any other Italian in the state, maybe the country. Please go here if you haven’t been and be sure to check out their sister restaurant in west midtown, Forza! Love this place. My favorite dishes are the squash blossom appetizer, the tagliatelle or the wild bar ragu and definitely finish dinner with an affogato. Be on the lookout for their white truffle special weekly pasta as well, it’s a must!

Extremely bad service by our waitress. Was conversing with table next to us and even took a shot with them while neglecting us throughout The evening. Extremely disappointing.

I’ve been raving about Storico since I’ve moved to Atlanta and tasted their Cacio e Pepe! I finally was able to bring my Italian family from up north in while they were in town visiting and they were AMAZED. Thank you for yet again, a delicious meal consisting of the misto salad, Cacio e Pepe, the weekly special (scallop ravioli) and of course, plenty of wine! I’ll be back soon ☺️

Food and service were very good. But at any given time you'll see a dozen diners turning on their phone flashlight to read the menu. I also found the club beats unneeded. Let people enjoy a meal together without squinting and trying to talk over techno music.

We always love bringing our friends to Storico! The service, cocktails, wine and food have never disappointed. The atmosphere is pretty lively, so we do avoid bringing those hard of hearing, as it can be challenging to hold a conversation.

All homemade Italian food from scratch in a casual grocery style restaurant. Food is outstanding. They also have a full bar and their food is in fridges to take with you.

If I had to guess their #1 priority for service, I’d say it’s “how fast can we get them the F out of here”. Really seemed to be all they cared about the entire time. I swear our salads came in 90 seconds. They were clearing our plates before we were done. Pouring wine while we had fresh cocktails. Brought the check with our coffee. This was NOT a late evening reservation either. Good food, but overshadowed by the rush rush rush!!

Food was good and wine selection was good. Waitress was either over busy in the front section with too many larger tables or just not interested. Will go back - but if service is average again I will take it off my list

Food is really good here, unfortunately our order was lost and not found for nearly an hour.
They comped the meal and threw in a dessert which was nice but not the experience we were looking for. That being said, we'll try again in the future because the food here is worth it.

The food was fantastic, my only reservation would be the noise level. There were three of us at a small table and we still had a difficult time having a conversation,

Great place to go if you are not interested in talking to anyone.

the food is incredible... i don’t say that lightly. i am not someone who eats white pasta regularly and like to save it for special occasions/a really good restaurant. this pasta is up there. the service is meh and the place is so noisy you can barely hear yourself think. i recommend sitting outside if you don’t mind being watched by all the other parties waiting to be seated.

Amazing place. Reminds me a lot of the trattorias in Europe. Food is excellent and love the atmosphere. Also took home some of their retail items. The quiches and the ragú with meatballs were outstanding. My new go to day to say Italian place.

I never write negative reviews, but dang. Super loud, 20 min b/f we even got water service, waiters acted like taking your order/putting down your food was a total inconvenience. Ignored a friend's warning of same, thinking maybe she just went on an off night. Bummed, b/c we were excited to try it.
