While my entree looked beautiful, it was not the heartiest, flavorful lasagna I ever had. It was unusual, baked in the dish it was served in. The pasta wasn't done quite right. Some of it was crispy, some chewy and the sauce wasn't as robust...More

Best Cheese Steak south of Philly. Get the Big Daddy and Tater Tots and split it with a friend. Good price for what you get. Has been a ATLANTA favorite for over 40 years.

The restaurant is small on room but huge on flavor!! I'm a fan of thin crust pizza and The Mad Italian did not disappoint! We also had wings, a calzone, and the homemade pasta e fagiole soup but the pizza was by far the best!!...More
