This chic Italian spot is set away in a largely residential neighborhood just east of downtown, not far from the mayor's house. Sotto Sotto Cucina Italiana is a little tricky to find, and the atmosphere suggests that the owners like it that way. A vintage Roman décor prevails in the dining room, where the lively, youthful crowd can get noisy at times. A classic Italian menu features a wide range of pastas, fresh seafood, risotto, and a wine list with selections from all over Italy. The warm and attentive staff makes this diner a great place to relish a sumptuous meal with family or friends.
Situated in the Virginia-Highland neighborhood, La Tavola Trattoria is regarded as one of the best authentic Italian places in the city.

With its rich desserts, a full bar offering a wide selection of wines and cocktails, and friendly service, La Tavola creates an intimate and memorable dining experience.
Jackets are required at this ultra-elegant spot in Buckhead. The lavish garden setting creates an unforgettable ambiance, one of many reasons La Grotta Ristorante Italiano has been named Atlanta's best Italian restaurant for many consecutive years. Pristine white tablecloths are set under fine china and crystal, an appropriate stage for the contemporary regional cuisine from all corners of Italy. Delicate pastas and an outstanding variety of veal preparations highlight a world-class menu, while an excellent wine list is also available.
No. 246 creates a crisp appearance with its white-washed walls that throw the contrasting dark wood tables and rustic pizza-paddle wall décor into sharp relief. Large overhead metal lights hang from the ceiling, perfectly illuminating the bar and the center seating. A basket of giant, fresh baguettes flaunts themselves on the wall by the waiter's station. If you come for brunch, you'll notice the number of pizzas (topped with bacon, potato, poached eggs, and cheese) that spring from the kitchen. Dinner here would call for an order of the well-flavored Agnolotti which is served with a healthy side of greens or the gnocchi. An interesting dessert called the Spoom makes a great ending, served in a waffle cone and topped with olive oil. At the chef's counter, a meal for four is highly recommended. Get seated in front of the busy and fiery kitchen and experience an on-the-spot planned meal by Chef Belline himself!
