    Bloody Mary just comes with an olive and lime slice, but the drink itself is really good. They use fresh pasta. The Black Spaghetti was amazing, and Strozzapretti Bolognese was also very good.

    The patio in the back is super cute, and they have a ping pong table!

    Try the Shrimp pasta - half size after some appetizers will fill most people. Great place. And it's been in the movies!

    There's great (but unusual) Italian cuisine here. The spaghetti with squid ink is actually really good even though it sounds iffy.

    Their pizzas are delicious, and the service is incredible. Get the meatball appetizer, a pizza and any of the pastas (ask for spaghetti with meatballs - it's off menu but they will do it)

    Gluten-free pasta FTW. If the weather's nice, snag a table on the back patio, overlooking the herb garden.

    The pasta section is house made, including the ravioli. Almost everything else is sourced locally, from the Georgia white shrimp to the Sweetgrass Dairy goat cheese and north Georgia trout. Read more

    It's been called an "instant classic." Simple, straight-forward cooking in a clean semi-industrial space. Go for the pastas, whole roasted fish and hulking sandwiches at lunch. [Eater 38 Member]

    Definitely make reservations ahead of time. The roasted chicken w/sherry bacon vinaigrette & veggies is mouth watering. Perfect combo of sweet & salty.

    Go on Mondays and indulge in all the pasta fun. Their beet "salad" (they don't technically call it such) is delicious; get it if available.

    The porchetta sandwich alongside a shallow bowl of "roasting juices" is glorious. Pasta is where the real excitement begins. Start there with a half order rather than fill up on appetizers.
