Our restaurants provide the perfect backdrop for special occasions – contact us to discuss your event details.
Sotto Sotto has been one of Atlanta’s finest dining destinations for over 15 years. Dishes here are firmly rooted in centuries of Italian tradition – from tortelli di Michelangelo, a 15th century dish of plump ravioli stuffed with veal, chicken and pork in a silky butter-and-sage sauce, to the simple, traditional appeal of seasonal favorites like risotto al basilica, made with carnaroli rice, marinated heirloom tomatoes and summer basil. Fresh, whole fish filleted tableside, as well as the kitchen’s handmade pasta, are all part of this enduring restaurant’s allure. A carefully curated, award- winning all-Italian wine list perfectly complements the menu.
Sotto Sotto has received numerous awards, including Atlanta magazine’s Best of Atlanta Hall of Fame and four-star reviews from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Creative Loafing as well as a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence and the 2014 and 2015 Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence. In 2015 the restaurant was named one of the “Top 20 Italian Restaurants in America” by Time Out New York.
Sotto Sotto is located at 313 North Highland Ave., NE, Atlanta, Ga., and is open for dinner Monday through Thursday from 5:30 to 11:00 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 5:30 p.m. until midnight and Sunday from 5:30 to 10 p.m. Please call 404-523-6678.
With restaurateur Riccardo Ullio’s third Italian concept, he introduces a whole new way to eat Italian. At Novo Cucina, Italian culinary tradition marries innovative casual dining, making eating out fun, easy and enjoyable. This inviting concept, Ullio’s first in Dunwoody, offers the finest of what Ullio’s successful Inman Park concepts, Fritti and Sotto Sotto, have given diners for over 15 years: artisanal pizza, classic pastas, salads and alluring appetizers such as funghi fritti and arancini, as well as 18 flavors of freshly spun gelato daily. Diners can feel free to taste wines from the Enomatic wine dispenser, explore the gelato counter or enjoy sitting in the spacious, open-air sunroom while relaxing in the modern vibe of the restaurant’s atmosphere. Novo’s culinary team, led by Ullio, consists of Neapolitan pizzaiolo Patrizio Alaia and former AJC dining critic Meridith Ford as gelataia.
Novo Cucina is located at 5592 Chamblee Dunwoody Road in Dunwoody, Ga. Novo is open Sunday through Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. Please call 470-275-3000.
Our philosophy at Escorpion is simple – to offer guests the authentic, indigenous flavors of Mexico while incorporating the eclectic, modern vibe of Atlanta’s Midtown area. Step into this rustic Mexican cantina, and take a seat at the 360-degree copper topped bar – it’s the perfect perch for just one, two – or a party. Escorpion features a taco menu with classics of al pastor and braised goat barbacoa, as well as antojitos (small street-inspired bites) and regionally inspired dishes such as chile relleno and chilaquiles. Got a group of four to six people? Try our familia plating for any taco dish. Our fruitful drink menu features craft cocktails and flights (all 100% tequila and mescal based) to enjoy while basking on the dark oak-wood patio that overlooks Atlanta’s beloved Peachtree Street. Booking a private party or event? Escorpion offers a private dining menu for between 20 and 60 people.
Escorpion is located in Midtown anchored on the corner of 5th and Peachtree Street and is open Monday through Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 a.m, and Sunday from noon until 10 p.m., with Brunch until 4.pm.
