Toys, a self-service wine station, and orders that come out faster than your two-year-old can say “more snacks!” mean Riccardo Ullio’s Italian outpost is about as family-friendly as a restaurant that doesn’t serve corn dogs can get. For the adults: pastas from his flagship Sotto Sotto, like the rich lasagnette alla Bolo-gnese or tagliatelle with wild mushrooms and cream. For the kids: thin-crust pizzas with toppings ranging from prosciutto to hot dogs. Post-dinner meltdown on the horizon? Walk over to the nearby gelato station for a scoop of mint chocolate chip. 5592 Chamblee Dunwoody Road, novocucina.com
