My sister and I went opening week for a quick lunch and fell in love with the food. There are so many amazing restaurants in Decatur and this is one of my many favorites.
The one thing you should not miss here is the agnolotti. The house-made pasta tossed with oyster mushrooms and roasted sweet corn kernels in a corn milk broth then topped with tarragon and a dollop of goat cheese is pure genius. A big order for $14 gets you 6 pieces of agnolotti and is big enough for sharing when you get other items, while the $8 smaller order with 4 pieces is good enough as a solo appetizer.
The other thing you should get is the meatballs. You can either get it as topping on a toast or as a sandwich during lunch service. Oooh, the meatballs are fantastic. They aren’t packed tight so they’re so juicy and tender. They’re made with a delicious San Marzano tomato sauce that has the right consistency — not too soupy, not too dry. Sandwich plates come with garlic fries or a small rocket salad.
The chicken paillard sandwich comes with crispy chicken pieces that are battered perfectly and fried golden. They are very tasty and juicy. The rocket leaves topping in a lemony dressing makes it a grown-up sandwich, although some simple lettuce and tomato will do, as well.
Want something sweet after your meal? You’d love their zeppole. I mean, fried dough then drizzled with espresso ganache, what’s not to like? The picture above was taken during Taste of Atlanta 2011 over this past weekend. Those were topped with a nutella chocolate sauce. Mmm.
Everything here is good. The carbonara, roasted chicken, and pan-roasted grouper are all delicious choices. You can’t go wrong with anything from the menu. If you haven’t been, go now!
