Pasta da Pulcinella
A renovated 1930s bungalow, nestled in the heart of Midtown between Peachtree Street and West Peachtree Street, is the space where the restaurant relocated in 2000; many longtime Atlantans remember the cramped (and less expensive) original a few blocks away.
The place has its charms as a first-date spot, but much of the menu hasn’t moved past the nineties iteration of vaguely regional Italian food crossed with New American ideas: risotto with smoked salmon, grilled beef tenderloin with roasted potatoes, spinach, and mozzarella. The signature pastas still satisfy most. Try the pizzocheri coi rapini, buckwheat pasta tossed with sauteed rapini with browned garlic and shiitake mushrooms.
