The swordfish was unremarkable. A little too bland, definitely needed some seasoning to add some flavor

The service was excellent. I just wasn’t overwhelmed by the quality of any of the dishes we ordered. Each was fine, but I had high expectations from reviews from friends who had been before us. The fried dishes were a bit oily and I found, admittedly minor, complaints about each of the other dishes. Nothing was inedible, far from it. But, nothing also hit just the right notes either. I’ll go back and give it another try, but I might not rush.

Short visit to Atlanta and debated between a few different restaurants. This did not disappoint! Everything from the bread to desserts and the home made Lemoncello was fabulous. The best thing though was the service! If I could have given that more stars I would! Would definitely return next time I am in the area!

The pastas were amazing as usual, but I especially loved the monk fish this time. It was paired with the perfect sides/garnish and had some spice to it which I think really elevated the dish. Can’t wait to go back again soon!

We really enjoyed St. Cecilia as we have enjoyed all of Ford Fry’s restaurants in Atlanta. The food and service was great, but I think what we enjoyed most was the service. St. Cecilia and the others all seem to be more customer centric and focus on creating a great dining experience. We really liked that we could do 1/2 orders of pasta dishes to give us an opportunity to sample more items.

Excelent choice to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. The food is fantastic, the service is great and discreet, the place is nicely decorated. The serving amounts are not too big.. so you can try an appetizer, your main dish and maybe share a dessert. My favorites: beef ravioles and pasta pepe (if you love pepper, definitely the best choice!).

Dory was an AMAZING server! The ambiance, FOH, BOH, and the entire team run fluidly. No steps of service were skipped, nor compromised, throughout our dinner. Thank you, and I will be sure to share our experience with others!

Everything was delicious from the cocktails to the appetizers to dessert! My husband ordered the yellowfin tuna and I took a couple of bites, and I am not a fish eater. The blueberry pudding cake was so good. Also, the mozzarella burrata paired very nicely with the bread. The service was wonderful as well.

Beautiful restaurant with impeccable but relaxed service. This is one of the best restaurant experiences I have ever had. It's a little pricey, but the quality of food and drink easily makes it an excellent value for the dollar.

Easter. The service was friendly but uncoordinated. The drinks were served well before the charcuterie course, which we intended to enjoy with our then warm champagne.
The music was loud and the general ambience was informal to put it mildly. Perfect for some. Maybe?

Food and beverages were awesome!!! Service was exemplary!. Unfortunately, we were seated directly next to the door to the (outside) patio for Easter. lunch/brunch.. thus, a cold breeze blew on our table every 5 minutes as the Waiters went about their service. Not great. Nufsed.
