Quaint & Charming – My wife and I stroll into Pasta Vino at least once a month for the simple, relaxing atmosphere and great food. Their pizza is unique-- think gorgonzola, fresh basil, pesto, etc. Also, the pizza slices are huge for what you pay. Their dishes are also fantastic- we love the Chicken Franscesca. Good quiet date night spot.
Too many rude children – I have been here several times and never truly had a good experience. It is true, the staff is not the best. I have been there and had a server not know/speak english well enough to understand our request for a wine list and our wine order. The major problem with this place is mainly it's customers. In nice weather the patio is filled with young Buckhead families. They are loud, rude and distracting. At any given time there are 6-12 children running loose through the patio dining area and walking around on the ledges inches away from your food. So rude! This must be the norm around here (or with these ridiculous "Buckhead" people who think it is acceptable to let their YOUNG children run around unattended). Never once have I seen a server or customer acknowledge the throngs of children allowed to run around. I think the people that frequent it only go because it is a place where they don't have to mind their children. Do not go with young, single friends and do not go on a date. Only go if you have children ages 2-10 and want to ignore them while you eat.
Strrikke...You're outta there – This is the worst excuse of an Italian resturant that we have ever been to. First let's discuss the service-this resturant has the most "high-strung" waiters we have ever met. They are impatient, rough, and lack proper customer service etiquette. As a part of 25, we called ahead and expressed certain requests, i.e., patio dining and split checks (no more than 4 ways). When we arrived, we found that a table was all setup for us inside (Strike 1). Once our party was seated, the waiter started to argue with us about splitting checks, then the manager came over and remebered that we had discussed the specifics, fine everyone was in agreement. However, when the actual bill came, it was one check and we were told to "Split it ourselves" (Strike 2). There were people in our party who received cold food, did not recieve thier food at all, did not recieve any drinks, waited 20 minutes for coffee, and did not receive dessert that was ordered at the time food orders were taken (Strike 554). After all this, they had the balllzzz, to tell us that gratuity was not included (as the norm), and we did not add gratuity [having thought it would already been included for such a large party]. Needless to say we will not be eating here again, and it is very unfortunate that we still had to reward such disgusting service!
They have a good food – I have gone to this place since it opened. It has changed for far and far better now.
All dishes became so consistant portion and taste. Bread is also so good.
Not so funcy but this is just right. They added new lightings, table cloth and window treatment .
My wish is selected European beers for food and develop dessert menue.
A Slice of Italy – If you're looking for traditional Italian food done well, look no further. Pasta Vino is as authentic as it gets.
Having been weened on the Italian dishes cooked by my Tuscan grandmother I can truly appreciate Pasta Vino's simple and delicious menu. From the very basic spaghetti and meatballs to chicken francaise, this restaurant offers a variety of delicious items featuring the freshest ingredients. Definitely try their gnocchi with pink sauce. The gnocci are pillows of heaven--they literally melt in your mouth.
Pasta Vino has also recently begun to expand their dessert menu to include a simply an amazingly light ricotta cake, and pistachio cupcakes with marscapone icing (not to be found anywhere else!).
This may all be due to a new owner as well as a new manager who have revamped Pasta Vino's decor and menu. There seems to be much more attention to detail as well as improved customer service which is always a plus.
If you're in the mood for genuine Italian cuisine make the trip to Pasta Vino--you won't be disappointed.
True Trattoria at Peachtree Battle! Perfect Pizza's! – A little slice of true family-style Italian, right here in Peachtree Battle. This place is owned and run by Italians. Some servers seem a little grumpy, but don't all Italian waiters. Don't take anything personal. I always order linguine with red clam sauce(not on the menu), just ask. Do not leave withou ordering the garlic knots. You can't put them down until they are gone. Great for singles, couples, and families with kids. And the prices are right. The food is always fresh and original! And the pizza'a are just perfect!
Editorial Review by Michael Longshore – Strip mall sleeper stands out as one of Atlanta's few honest-to-goodness neighborhood Italian restaurants.
User review by lean968 – The only good thing I can say about Pasta Vino was that the garlic knots are wonderful (but they cost extra). The service was rushed and impersonal (it was nowhere near closing time, and there were only a couple other occupied tables). The food was very bland. At least it was relatively cheap, so I didn't waste too much money.
Basic Italian – Don't ask for a wine list. They don't have one. Also, veal piccata is made without capers. Do not venture too deep into the menu. The pizza looked delicious, but unfortunately did not order. We settled for garlic knots which were excellent.
Excellent NYC Pie – Light tasty thin crust Pizzas with fresh toppings offered with great Marinated Eggplant, Traditional Pasta dishes and Value-priced Specials.
