We love St. Cecilia. The menu is always changing and Chef
Craig always makes it interesting. My husband had the swordfish special
which was great and the always wonderful branzino is a dish I always look
forward to. We shared three different crudo dishes and th bay scallops were
especially great.

I am a huge Foodie and Yelp Elite member, I absolutely love everything about St. Cecilia. From the long, stretch open floors and inviting high ceilings, down to the details of the food presentation on the plate providing the best palate experience. Excellent experience and will most certainly be a repeat customer.

I had a customer in from out of town who is pescatarian and a colleague of mine recommended St. Cecilia. It was delicious! I was a little worried at first glance at the menu, because I am vegan, but I emailed the manager who quickly responded that I should simply tell my server and they would accommodate me. My client had a lovely cheese platter appetizer and some sweet potato pasta and I had a lovely plate of local vegetables cooked to melt in my mouth perfection. We had 2 wine selections that were recommended by the staff and both were great! Definitely recommend!

I don't get the hype... We came here for brunch and were very underwhelmed. We had a reservation but waited about 15 minutes for our table to be ready even though the restaurant was half empty. I would have liked the option to order some of the menu items a la carte rather than having to do the whole package. After adding a cocktail and tip, our brunch was $50 a person and so not worth that. The service was fine, nothing bad but I wouldn't rate it as great service. I ordered the pasta and it was good, but I had better pasta the day before at Ponce City Market for like half the price. I only took a couple of items from the buffet area and nothing stood out as worthy of being a $50 a head brunch.

You can skip this one for brunch. I haven't been for dinner so comment on their dinner service.

Food was excellent. Service impeccable.
When they heard that we had to put down, day before, our beloved Corgi due to illness,
they waived the charges for the meal.

When arrived, with a confirmed reservation which I was called twice to confirm, there was a completely empty restaurant but we were escorted to the very back of the restaurant in a corner table behind two poles. The most welcoming part of the entire experience were the Valet attendants. Not too sure what all the hype is about relating to this restaurant. Not worth the $$$$$.

We eat a lot of Italian food since my husband is half Italian, and we usually do not go to Italian restaurants because often we are not pleased.
St. Cecilia was an excellent surprise, and we both were reminded of previous delicious dinners in Italy.
The staff was very accommodating when we asked to move tables, the hostess immediately sat us somewhere else.
We found out that new location was in a section reserved for a private party, so they resat us and then brought out champagne for our inconvenience which was such a nice surprise.
Our server described all the foods and preparations in great depth so we knew exactly what to expect, and she was very personable.

We had: the octopus:a little chewy; the burrata salad and the risotto: good. The waiter forgot to bring us the side dish...The restaurant was busy, a saturday evening, and it took a while to receive the food. Also, we were seated towards the back of the restsurant, close to the bathroom and it was cold at times...felt like a door was opened somewhere...an ok experience, but noisy and not really impressed.

Service was subpar. Plates left on the table 5-10 minutes after we were finished with courses. Water glasses and cocktails empty. Had to ask for water and more drinks - never was asked by waitstaff. Had to remind waitstaff to bring a dish. Food was good but for the price, we will continue to go to Valenza and Haven where the service is always exceptional. Small portions. Skip dessert - nothing fantastic. Won’t be returning.

My wife and I came here for a “date night” and the current menu is outstanding. We have been before but Melani (our great waitress) truly made this a great dining experience. She walked us through the entire menu and everything she suggested was just as good as she explained. The pasta is all house made and we are still talking about the Agnolotti. We will be back for certain.

Really enjoyed our latest visit to St.Cecelia. We were having a friends get-together and really enjoyed ourselves. Both the cocktail and dinner menus were great and provided a lot of different options and flavors for the group. I have to say, I was very impressed that the restaurant accommodated half portions of the pasta dishes so that you could either try multiple or pair with more filling entrees. That being said, for the prices paid, I would have expected slightly larger portions, as I've experienced in other Ford Fry restaurants. Regardless, everything I ate was delicious. Though they change the menu daily based on what is available, I would highly recommend the Beef Carpaccio, risotto, and agnolotti! We will definitely be back!

Fantastic lunch! I took my friend to St. Cecilia to celebrate her birthday. Little did we know what an experience we were in for! From the second we arrived, we were treated like celebrities. They knew it was a birthday lunch, and my friend received not one -- but TWO -- separate candles over the course of lunch to blow out, along with a complimentary glass of Prosecco. For lunch, we each enjoyed the seafood salad, which was heaping with gigantic shrimp, succulent mussels and calamari on a bed of crisp greens. We then divided the sweet potato pasta -- quite authentic and savory. Our server, Brandon, was attentive, but allowed us plenty of time between courses to visit and catch up. It was a memorable day, and I will certainly be back.....SOON!

The food here was absolutely amazing. All of their pasta dishes were incredible, I had a pear stuffed winter green ravioli that I wish I could eat every day. They even allow you to do small tasting plates of the pastas if you can't make up your mind. Would highly recommend.

Ford Fry and Chef Chris are turning out some of the best food in the ATL right now. Yes, it is a beautiful space with a vibrant bar scene but they are serving some of the best pasta I have eaten anywhere including Tuscany! Don’t miss the Cacio e Peppe and the Agnolotti paired with a Brunello or Barolo. And ask to be seated at one of Landon or Alex’s tables.
