Food was delicious. A couple dishes a little on the salty side but still good. Pacing by our server was a little slow but still attentive.

Overall, such a beautiful space, not loud, plenty of room between tables. Nice wine selection. I'd absolutely go again!

Amazing amazing food. The oysters were completely fresh with the most amazing mignonette- downside, no crackers or crisps with them but I enjoyed them on their own! Crispy artichokes are to die for!! Cacio e Pepe was incredible as was the very hearty and delicious short rib angolotti (similar to ravioli but more like filled little meat pillows lol) SO GOOD. If you’re gonna carb out, come here and make it worth it 💯

They must have gotten new staff in the kitchen cause the food was not the same. Our pasta came out SUPER salty (so much so that I had to spit out my first bite) and WAY undercooked (It’s supposed to be al-dente but should not be crunchy). The tomatoes in the caprese salad was hard and not ripe enough, the only good component was the prosciutto (which wasn’t prepared by the kitchen). Very disappointed in the food, but since the business was still great, they probably didn’t care that much.

Our experience at St Cecilia was lovely. We arrived early and had cocktails at the bar before sitting for our reservation. Richard took care of us and he made sure we had the best night, checking in appropriately. He was very attentive, knowledgeable, warm and charming. We started with a dozen oysters and loved our pasta course, sharing the agnolotti and ravioli. He recommended we try the hamachi collar and it was amazing! Thanks for a great night!

My husband and I made a reservation through OpenTable and had a regular seat. The tables are still well spaced from each other.
We were seated immediately and our server was awesome!
We ordered two appetizers, the stuffed squash blossoms and octopus were both delicious!!! Then we split two pastas which is was the perfect amount of both the Agnilotti and cacio e pepe with a side of artichokes.
The drinks were delicious and a great wine selection!
Looking forward to our next visit!!!

Omar was an excellent server. The Mista Salad is good but would prefer more salad and fewer pistachios. Bronzino and halibut were very good. Would not order the green beans again. Service especially made it a very nice evening.

We just got back from two weeks in Italy. We have been trying out Atlanta Italian restaurants. This was as authentic as it gets. I only wish they had tortellini. We tried three half pastas they were all great.

Great food and service. Odd reservation experience: the restaurant changed our reservation time and posted us as a no show. Although we eventually were seated the restaurant cleared our 8:45 pm reservation and closed their reception. Nasty behavior. The fish and pasta service remain among Atlanta’s best. Fine wine list.
