Oh my gosh.. – This is one of the best restaurants in Atlanta and I've been to MANY restaurants in Atlanta. There is something so wonderful about this place - I literally CRAVE their food. It's delicious!!! This place is wonderfully romantic and quiet - you feel like you are in your own little cozy cave - and the fireplaces add a very nice touch as well.
Absolutely worth it - go at night. Make reservations. I took my mom there and she almost died. :D
Budget Entree's! Average At Best! – This is probably a great spot in trendy Buckhead, for the younger set that is still dating, on a budget. But Atlanta has many great other options, like those two on Cheshire Bridge Rd., for the real deal. And it's in the same price range. Parking always costs, on trendy Pharr Rd.
Nice Experience – I had large (17) dinner party here on a Saturday evening. The service was good. Our waiters were very attentive. The dishes were hit-and-miss?I got mixed reviews from the group. The rustic decor was pleasant. Overall, we enjoyed the experience
Great Customer Service – Great Food, Wonderful Service. I went to the restaurant for the first time the other night and had a wonderful experience. All of the staff pitched in to make sure that we were taken care of. Shannon was a great server and very friendly. The food recomedations that she made were excellent!
Romantic – The restaurant itself was very romantic with the dim lighting and candle lit tables but the food was ok, nothing special. I'm a vegetarian and I usually never have a hard time finding something to eat at an Italian restaurant but I was struggling here. I think its a place you should try once.
great outside seating - affordable - romantic – I enjoyed the Salmon and my date had the rissotto - both were fantastic - they do a great dinner salad thing with zuchinni holding the salad together - neat. Our wine was chilled very cold like we asked and quite affordable. Nice crowd and the wait staff was friendly.
love this casual italian trattoria – We consider ourselves rather picky and love Caio Bella. Have dined here many times and have never experienced anything even close to some of the complaints here. Love the outside patio when it's warm and the coziness of the inside in the winter, have always had good service and never been rushed. Food is very good and the atmosphere is casual. The menu is somewhat limited to traditional italian fare so if you're looking for a huge variety this might not be the place. We haven't visited in a while but are going tonight, will write again if anything has changed! Highly recommend for casual italian.
2 visits--horrible service--had to walk out – On the first visit, the service was poor despite a small crowd at the restaurant. We decided to wait about 8 months before returning. Tonight, a Sunday night, we were 2 of only 6 people at the restaurant. There was one waiter/host and a busboy. We were seated and a few minutes later saw the busyboy. No waiter. After about 5 minutes the busboy brought us water. No waiter. At 10 minutes--no waiter. We went inside only to find the waiter at the bar making a drink for the patron who just had entered the restaurant. He was rude when we mentioned that he had yet to come to our table after such a long wait. We walked out and ended up eating at Maggiano's and had a wonderful experience. I'd rather eat at a small. locally owned place, but, with such pitiful service it's not worth another attempt.
We ate here for our girls night out and it was so good I made my husband go back the next night for date night! The food was really good and as was our service, and the patio was great! I think "Charming" best sums up the whole experience.
Led Zeppelin Blasting through the speakers – I went on a date to this italian restaurant and was really disappointed. We were seated on the outdoor patio and were the only customers there. Over the sound system Led Zeppelin was blasting ! Now if there was any romantic atmosphere it was totally gone. The music was so loud that it really spoiled my dinner. I ordered Pasta with salmon and peas in a tomato cream sauce. There literally was no salmon in my pasta. I didn't see any, I didn't taste any, but it did seem like there was some type of texture in the pasta that could have been fish although it was almost non existent. It was not cheap, so there was no excuse. I would never go back to this restaurant. EVER!!!
