SOTTO SOTTO has won Critics’ Choice for six years now, but try as we might, we can’t come up with another place that can touch it. When Sotto Sotto opened back in 1999, it set a new standard for authentic Italian cooking in Atlanta. Fast-forward to 2005: The simple salad of shaved pecorinomore...
SOTTO SOTTO has won Critics’ Choice for six years now, but try as we might, we can’t come up with another place that can touch it. When Sotto Sotto opened back in 1999, it set a new standard for authentic Italian cooking in Atlanta. Fast-forward to 2005: The simple salad of shaved pecorino and fresh fava beans explodes with summery flavor; the restaurant’s famed Tortelli di Michelangelo (ravioli stuffed with veal, chicken and pork in a butter and sage sauce) still thrill, as does the wine list of all-Italian vino. less...

In five years, SOTTO SOTTO has transformed from a see-and-be-scene carnival to one of our city's culinary treasures. Nowhere else in Atlanta can you melt in your seat as you slowly spoon risotto with caramelized onions and aged balsamic vinegar into your mouth. The freeform lasagne is sublime - hell, every pasta dish here is sublime. The wine list provides a sound education in Italian vino. Oh, and the frightful din? Chef/owner Ricardo Ullio recently added sound-absorptive panels to the dining room. Now you're talkin'. "313 N. Highland Ave. 404-523-6678. www.sottosottorestaurant.com" less...

If the last time you ate at SOTTO SOTTO the sound level split your ears and the service had just a tad bit too much 'tude, we've got good news for you: Things have changed.

If the last time you ate at SOTTO SOTTO the sound level split your ears and the service had just a tad bit too much 'tude, we've got good news for you: Things have changed. The rambunctious crowds have died down, particularly on weekdays, leaving you free to converse with your tablemates and dine on the most succinctly composed Italian offerings in town. Risotto with caramelized onions and 12-year-old balsamic vinegar is a marvel of mouth-watering complexity. It's hard to find a dull pasta dish and the wood-roasted fish, a house specialty, is as subtle and tantalizing as ever. Servers offer amiable smiles these days. Should you happen to arrive at prime time, vie for one of the five quiet tables outside on the patio. "313 N. Highland Ave, 404-523-6678. www.sottosottorestaurant.com" less...

Once again, we begrudgingly bestow best Italian to frustrating but irresistibly authentic Inman Park trattoria SOTTO SOTTO. The cramped tables across the back wall are the least appealing in the city, and on weekends, one must literally shout to be heard. Come during the week, then, and feast on sublime risottos whose ingredients shift with the seasons, and on wood-grilled fish served with roasted potatoes and garlicky greens. "313 N.

313 N. Highland Ave. 404-523-6678 Yes, we consider this controversial eatery our best Italian restaurant. We like the frenetic style, the sometimes goofy wait staff, the intense and passionate demeanor of owner Riccardo Ullio. We think the risottos are usually better than Viagra for stimulating erotic interest. We love the pheasant with mostarda and just about any of the seasonal dishes. We hate the parking situation. less...

In a town gone mad for Italian, this Inman Park restaurant is our favorite because of the menu of creative but straightforward dishes served in an informal but smart dining room. The staff doesn't change every two weeks and none of the servers behaves like recent rehab grads. The roasted baby chicken and the risotti are our favorites (and we wish the hanger steak would return). But we also love the free-form raviolis and the chocolate soup. We love it all. less...

Pastas are often the best bet — and pasta specials usually even better — at these 1940-ish evocations of what looked like imported exotica a half-century ago.

Pastas are often the best bet — and pasta specials usually even better — at these 1940-ish evocations of what looked like imported exotica a half-century ago. Handsomely gotten up with polished oak woodwork, heavy flatware, red-checked tablecloths and a menu longer than Florida's coastline, Maggiano's is a casual dinner-house chain from Chicago's super-successful Lettuce Entertain You group. You could do worse than order fried squid (skip the marinara), Maggiano's salad (with prosciutto, red onion and blue cheese), mushroom ravioli and broccoli with lemon and garlic. less...
