Great Italian and one of Buckhead Life's best; all the pasta dishes are great and the people watching alone is worth the price of admission!
Great if you love the flavor of salt above all else – Service was good but the food was lackluster, non-authentic and way over salted. The chef really needs to learn to use herbs and spices other than salt.
Great Place for Rehearsal Dinner! – We just held a rehearsal dinner for 60 people for my son's wedding. People were still talking about how great it was at the reception! The set up was perfect, the selection worked well, the service was excellent!
The entire staff was pleasant, responsive, and easy to work with. The preplanning was simple and the follow-thru was right on. Sal Gentile played his wonderful music for us. Thanks for a great event!
I look forward to visiting the restuarant again and will recommend it to anyone who is planning an event!
Exciting but disappointing... Maybe I expected too much... – On the cosmetic side, the restaurant is great, the staff is wonderful and service is excellent. The restaurant has charm and a nice atmosphere.
As far as the food, I was quite disappointed, not by the presentation which again was excellent, but by the food itself. Lots of items were over salted (3 out of 3 people at the table thought the same thing), not cooked right and flavorless, hence the addition of salt.
Maybe I came on the wrong day, who knows...? Yet, based solely on this visit, I would not recommend this place nor would I intend to return.
My favorite Italian place – Went there last night with Valentines Day reservations - despite an unbelievable crowd, we were seated rather quickly at an awesome table. Our waiter, Marcus, was great, attentive and relaxed as always despite the busy night. We were pleasantly surprised that the prix fixe menu had so many courses and prime selections. Favorite part was the salmon entre which was huge, and the best tasting salmon I have had. We'll definitely go back.
No place for a special occassion unless you eat there often. – Pricci's kept us waiting for 45 minutes with a reservation for a special occassion and then tried to seat us in the bar. I asked to speak with the manager who was indifferent.
While the food was good, it hardly qualified as a fine dining experience as the price would indicate.
Just had one of the best meals of my life. Kobi Beef ravioli, great caesar salad and all the other meals in our foursome were outstanding (e.g., the wild mushroom pizza). Service was delightful. – Just had one of the best meals of my life - Kobi Beef ravioli, started with simple, yet tasty caesar salad - just happened to luck out by staying at the hotel across the street - and all the other meals in our foursome were outstanding (wild mushroom pizza, with fontina cheese and carmelized onions (fantastic), artichoke and spinach tortellini, and a mushroom risotto). Each of the meals had simple, yet unique tastes and textures (tried them all). Service was delightful. Wait staff could not have been more accommodating. Very reasonably priced. Makes me wish I lived in Atlanta. I have never written a review of a restaurant before.
I will be back – I've been to almost all of the Buckhead Life restaurants (Kyma, Nava, ATL Fish Market, Bluepointe, Buckhead Diner, Veni Vidi Vici) and, upon finishing my meal, I could never understand what all the fuss is about with these restaurants. I was never impressed by the food or the service. Pricci changed that for me. I went there for lunch and maybe that's the difference because I had been to all the others during dinner. The server was excellent. The food - amazing. I ordered the yellow fin tuna carpaccio which melted in my mouth and the gnocci which were to die for. I plan to go there for dinner for my birthday and I hope that the dinner can live up to the amazing lunch that I had at Pricci.
Had a lunch there. Good interior and service was prompt. Tuna was good. Their noodle was unique.
Price was just right. Coffee can be better.
Overall a wonderfull Restaurant – I have been to all of the Buckhead Life restaurants and Pricci is by far one of the best. I agree that some of them are not all they are cracked up to be, but Pricci rocks. The staff is extremely knowledgable and friendly and goes out of their way to make sure you have a great experience. The food is wonderful from the bread and dipping sauce for it all the way to the desserts. The Boston Sole fish that is parmesean crusted is amazing, one of the best dishes I have ever had at a restaurant period. Great place for a special occasion, and they have a great wine list for every price range. I will definatley return.
problem may be corporate – The BHL restaurants are not all they are cracked up to be. I agree with some of the negative postings about them. I think that the service is really lacking.
