I love this Place!
Really good pizza (we're originally from Boston and know pizza) and Mr & Mrs Cosmo retired. Customer service is much better.
Chef Montobbio is at Restaurant Firenze. Chef Paolo Tondo is at Taverna Fiorentina.
Some food was almost good, but the customer service was very lacking. I at there a month ago with my wife. Food was also overcooked and had a hint of an ammonia smell. When I commented, the manager (who i believe was the owner) appeared nonchalant and did not make any attempt to correct the problem saying he could not smell it and it appeared fine. He would not rectify the meal and charged us. Pasta dish was pleasant. The manager (owner) was definitely arrogant and almost rude to us and his staff. I will drive past this on my way to places that want my return business.
HORRIBLE COMPANY. Very poor. We had reservations last night with another couple to celebrate a birthday. We booked Feb. 26th for a May 9th dinner. This company called us May 7th to say we had not properly booked our reservation online (nor did EIGHT OTHER PEOPLE FOR THE SAME NIGHT) and so we could not come on the 9th. After several calls, they said they had some cancellations so we could come. Well, we get there and we are not on the list. We were told to just wait around for 30 minutes and maybe if someone didn't show we could stay. They did not accept any responsibility for their reservation system being poor. We found out many, many people had supposedly not booked properly. Or as we suspect, this company overbooks and just calls to cancel people two days before the dinner when they realize it. Not a professional company at all and no resolution offered. They gave us the run-around--very shady. Do not take a chance that you will be the one cancelled.
I'm not a pasta fan, or a fan of paying for anything you can make at home for less than a dollar. That being said, I love Nino's! I recently dined there and had a beautifully cooked rosemary veal shank, pillowy tender gnocchi and bolognese and my favorite, the fettucine Michaela, which I count as a can't miss dish of the Atlanta cuisine scene. The scallops and shrimp have always been tender, cooked with the light handed finesse many chefs lack, and the pasta is always perfectly al dente, but honestly, they could put that saffron-pernod sauce on anything and I'd lick it clean. This is the ONLY Italian restaurant in Atlanta, or anywhere for that matter, that I've enjoyed enough to rave about. The service is impeccable, one of the last restaurants I've found maintaining the standards of fine dining that veteran diners expect.
The first review is appalling. I took my wife on our anniversary and we hand a bang up time. This man clearly knows nothing about the arts. For starters he calls them an a cappella group. Sir that is singing not acting. Maybe you should do some research about the theatrical arts before. That just proves the ignorance. Its supposed to be a fun show. Thats exactly what my wife and I hand. It was an amazing evening with great food. Which is something Agatha's lacks is good food. The live singers were also a treat I felt I was sucked into a 1950's dinner club. Great all around.
Went to last nights show (4-11) and had a killer of a time (lol). Food was yummy and plenty. Even my boyfriend who normally eats and eats took a to go box home. Actors where funny and never break character. Loved the Priest guy and the Madame. Very funny. Great selection of wine to choose from. Only thing is we didn't get Sugo's famous meatball which we thought we were getting. Other than that we were very pleased. Maybe because our team WON the murder mystery!!!! Great Idea. We will be going back.
It was a really fun evening out. We loved it hands down. Great food, great fun and we are going back. My partner in crime forgot to make advance reservations and they were full up. But... the mob made sure we got seated anyway (lucky for my guy!) But we had so much fun. Wished it was longer than 90 minutes. Went by way to fast. I hope they do this at other eateries as well. Sugo is good but the service was a bit slow and the added bar bill we incurred was a bit steep as well. Double thumbs up from our crew.
We loved the show. We had so much fun. The actors were hilarious and very, very interactive. The music was good and we really enjoyed the comedy break durning our main course. The food was good but we were disappointed that we didn't get the sugo meatball that we paid for with our ticket. It was just a blast. I have to laugh at the reviewers who dislike this because they are surely the few and far between. We had 12 people in our group and we all left happy and very full. Thanks for a great time! We will surely be regulars.
The mystery show was not very good; the first reviewer described it best - "amateurish". The main issue with the show was that there were too many characters. Their stories weren't flushed out well. Characters were being killed off willy nilly without rhyme or reason. You had to read through a long 2-sided pamphlet to figure out each characters history. Add to that, that the characters don't make their way around the restaurant. Instead each set of characters concentrates their actions to a certain area of the restaurant. Zero stars for the show.
I rated the experience 2 stars for the food alone. Sugo's serves excellent food. I've been there on non-performance nights and the food is always very tasty. However, for this event, the portions of the appetizer (spinach quiche), salad, and dessert (2 tiny canollis) are very small. The main course (chicken or pork) is large.
Finally, the service was horrid. What angered me the most was that an 18% tip was automatically added to our bill. I purchased this event as a groupon for $99. The restaurant also tacked on 7% sales tax on the $99 (What???). Not happy at all.
Very Very good time we had. Good food and funny characters. Everyone was pleased in our party. I will be telling many friends to go.
Took my girlfriend for her birthday and she loved it. We've been to Agatha's and this was different. We liked that "the mob" has this party atmosphere. My girlfriend actually recognized a few of the actors. One of them was on A&E last month. I would say its really a good place to go celebrate. Foods really good and plenty of it we were stuffed. A little noisy at times but it was sold out and people were really partying. I am taking my girlfriend back for the Valentines Day Show. I would say we probably will do this show 2 or 3 times a year if they keep changing it up.
We had a great time. A bunch of really funny characters and the food was excellent. Did one of these kinda shows before in Chicago so I knew they are somewhat corny but that just makes it more fun. Lots of laughs. Something new to do in our little end of the world without having to haul into the city on a week night.
We had a complete blast of a time. Good food good fun great time. I saw the reviewer who wrote the bad review. The whole place was having fun and this guy and his crew looked like they was watching paint dry. Don't know what him and his "upitty"crew were looking for but this was just a whole big bunch of fun. I reckon you can't please them all. Sorry us real folks actually like to let our hair down and kick it up. Food was good, drinks were good and the Actors where really funny and the they gave out prizes. I give it thumbs up.
Dinner with the Mob is what happens when the late night shift at Waffle House hears about Agatha's making lots of money doing murder mystery dinners and decides to do one themselves without having first acquired acting skills or a plot. You'd have more success throwing money at a middle school a cappella group than going to see this trash. I went to see them on my anniversary with my wife and I can honestly say it was the absolute worst date we've ever been on after twelve years, and this after they cancelled the "show" we bought tickets for without notifying us the first go round. If given a choice between going again and burying my face in a fire ant bed, I'd have to seriously think on it.
Noni's is also a great place for after work cocktails and a really tasty dinner and don't overlook the party scene on Saturday nights where hipsters from nearby East Atlanta, Old Fourth Ward and Inman Park dance the night away.
We love to go to Pasta Vino because it is fresh and locally owned. The chef creates dishes to order as everything is made on site without the use of a microwave ( I know, can you imagine?) The food is wonderful - may not be in the gourmet category but it is exactly what a good Italian restaurant should be- Warm, rich, and easy to love!
The best pasta dish I have ever had is the lobster ravioli. The fish is always fresh and delicious. Everyone loves the garlic knots and the new potato chips are marvelous!
They have been taking credit cards for about 5 years.
The link to the website for Alpine Bakery and Trattoria is correct, HOWEVER, the address and phone number are for SWISS Alpine Bakery...a totally different place. No connection whatsoever. Alpine Bakery and Trattoria is not owned by a French couple and, although there are many amazing desserts, pain aux chocolat is not among them. Only lunch and dinner are served at AB&T....no breakfast.
Awesome mediterranean food! I love to go here for lunch with friends and colleagues. They have the best turkish kebabs! Try their pides - traditional turkish dish. they are delicious and filling! They also have a kind of soup, called iskembe. also traditional dish, made with beef tripe. Another thing I like is enjoying a good espresso coffee out on the patio. It's more than affordable, considering the location.
