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.

The pasta here is unreal. There are very few places that make fresh pasta and this is one of them. Pasta is on par with pasta you’d get in Italy.

We ordered :
- cavatelli
- lasagna
- pesto linguini with shrimp
- charcuterie board
- artichokes

Everything was fantastic, only thing I’d say is the artichokes are good but not something that’s a must have.

I admit I was a bit taken aback by the text I received from the restaurant notifying me shortly before my arrival time that I should "limit your stay to 1 hour 45 minutes." I've never had an eating, drinking, taking my time, enjoying my food and company deadline before.

Sure enough, we had asked for to-go boxes. Those were delivered to our table. We sat finishing our wine and discussing dessert. Then, an employee came and bagged our to-go boxes. ... "There you go," he said. I looked at my watch. Sure enough, precisely 1 hour and 45 minutes. We then ordered dessert, which must be a bad thing in today's Hurry Restaurant.

So - one of our party members said it was the best salmon she had ever had. For me, I had rubberized shrimp in my pasta - I imagine they leave the heads on to make the small amount of shrimp look like "more."

A good time was had, but I'll continue to consider this a favorite lunch destination, rather than dinner.

And it's loud. Very loud. Yelling across the table to hear ourselves loud.

Did I say it was loud?

We were seated right next to the large window of the fitness studio next door which wasn’t great for the ambience. My biggest frustration is that we made a reservation 2+ weeks in advance and got a call 1 hour before our reservation slot saying we may not have a table anymore. Luckily they were able to work something out, but that made the night stressful as we were celebrating a big occasion!

Glad to be back at my favorite lunch option in Buckhead after 16 months of quarantining. Storico has limited menu which I am so grateful for. Every item is prepared fresh and is excellent. Remember 'fresco' is their last name.

Why lunch and not dinner? The noise level. Storico is usually jammed at night, making conversation with the person across the table impossible without shouting. Fun when you're in your 20s. Not so much if you're over 30.

Great service. Thanks again to hostess and wait staff.

The food was fantastic, my only complaint is that it was UNBELIEVABLY LOUD!! We sat in the patio and the music was so loud that I felt like I was at a club. This loud music translated into all of the patrons practically yelling so that they could hear the people at their table. I could barley hear the waiter when he was speaking to us. Just for reference my Husband and I are in our late 30s and have perfect hearing and we struggled to communicate with each other. The food was great and Perhaps the atmosphere is different on a weeknight but it was entirely too loud for us, we might have to stick to takeout from here. I would recommend the food for sure and Jiovani our waiter was great.

Honestly I’m visiting from out of town and I can’t believe the reviews this place gets. First, the noise level is just painful. You can’t carry on a conversation. The driving bass of the loud music was almost intolerable. (Think the loudest night club you’ve ever been). The appetizers were okay (skip the overpriced bread, it’s burned and dry.) The pasta courses were just not good. The lasagna was literally a small cast iron bowl of meat sauce. There was no cheese and very little actual pasta. It almost felt like someone just spooned meat in a bowl. There is no “ambiance” here. It s a grocery store with tables packed in with uncomfortable chairs. Maybe this is just for locals who love it? As an out of towner I can’t believe this is what Atlanta folks think is good cuisine.

Our waiter forgot to put our order in, so we were waiting quite a while. However, another server helped us out and made things efficient! Most importantly- the food was super yummy!!!

Great dinner! We have a mother daughter early happy hour turned dinner. We didn’t order a full menu but multiple appetizers and salads were full. It was a great taste of so many different flavors.
Get the squash blossoms!

Service was excellent and our meal was quite good. We shared the squash blossom appetizer and then tried the hangar steak and the daily pasta special. Service was excellent- knowledgeable, quick and attentive without being overbearing. We were seated at a tiny cafe table on the sidewalk outside. Advantage was that it was outdoors and reasonably quiet ( it is very loud indoors). Disadvantage is that although some of the outdoor tables are under cover, these are not. We were lucky and had finished dining when the deluge occurred. It would have ruined the meal but instead we count it as a very pleasant dinner out.

We went on a Monday night and so glad we made a reservation. We saw many people leave due to a long wait. The food was delicious. The service was great and we were offered great recommendations on both food and wine. We were visiting from out of town and so glad we found this jewel of a restaurant. Highly recommend!
