We always like to seat inside away from the smoking area but for whatever reason sometimes we get someone sitting to the left side kind of patio but it’s still inside the tables at non smoking area. It’s discusting for us non smokers having to smell that cigarette (wasn’t hookah) from this woman sitting by herself close to our table.

Went here with my sister last night and had a wonderful time, the food was amazing and the environment was really cool. One thing I really enjoyed was the mocktail, I forgot what it was called but it was purple and delicious and I believe was blueberry flavored.

Didn’t get to be seated on the rooftop although I booked the rooftop Mother’s Day brunch. But the food was good and we got to see the Mariachi band!

About the restaurant
Welcome to YEPPA & Co.! Named for a verbal exclamation expressing joy and excitement.


Created by the minds behind Storico Fresco and Forza Storico, our menu draws inspiration from the sun-kissed coastal city of Rimini in Italy's Emilia-Romagna region, nestled along the Adriatic Sea. Picture a culinary journey featuring cured meats and cheeses, grilled skewers, seafood dishes, focaccia pizza and panini, as well as hearty house-made pastas.


Rev up the excitement in our F1-themed space, where Italian-inspired cocktails flow and the adrenaline of F1 races fills the air.

Join us, and let's find YEPPA together!

An imaginative menu makes Sweet Georgia’s Juke Joint a staple in Atlanta’s downtown restaurant scene and the allure of traditional juke joints is showcased in the restaurant’s design.

The young lady who waited on us was excellent. We did not have to ask for anything because she provided. Unfortunately I don’t remember her name. She is a young black female with excellent customer service skills. I will be back because of her.
