About Storico Fresco Alimentari e Ristorante

Storico Fresco has now fully morphed into a true Italian Alimentari e Ristorante that started in a basement in Atlanta …

We had a dream to bring traditional and nearly lost Italian dishes to Atlanta. The result: Storico Fresco Alimentari, quite simply an Italian grocery store and restaurant in one. We’ve gone beyond and created a true Italian experience for you to enjoy. We use locally sourced ingredients to craft our authentic dishes.

Absolutely incredible!!!! The food and our server was impeccable! It was only until the last minute when one of the severs flings the door open and let’s it slam right in my face and just storms off. He was also rude to other customers as well. My husband is a bar manager so we pick up on that stuff unfortunately. Shorter guy bald super black thick rimmed glasses. And it was Valentine’s Day so maybe it was stress.... still. Rude. But seriously everything was absolute heaven!

My s/o and I had an great meal here on Valentine's Day. As other reviews suggested, there was a relatively high volume level in the dining room. However, it was not so noisy that we couldn't hear each other speak. The energy level was quite nice, actually. It enhanced the feel of the room with respect to the marketplace setup Storico has. We shared a cheese plate that featured some delicious cheeses, honey, and jam. Our entrees were cooked perfectly and delivered quickly. I HIGHLY recommend the lasagna bolognese. The servers were incredibly efficient and helpful. We will most definitely return to Storico.

We were seated at a great table for our 7pm reservation.
We sat there for 10 minutes before anyone said “hello” or asked us for our drink order. As a customer, it’ is an uncomfortable way to start a nice dinner.
Food was amazing.

Fun double date night. Overall enjoyed the evening, but be prepared for a VERY LOUD evening. Limited our conversation a bit, but the food is delicious. Our reservation was at 8:45 and were seated about 9:00. The dining room cleared out enough by 10:30 to allow for some easier conversation.

We have been eating at Storico Fresco for several years and the food never disappoints. However, they have now crammed as many tables as possible into the dining area. There was less than a foot between our table and the diners on either side of our table. This makes for a high noise level as well as being able to hear the neighboring tables’ entire conversations.

This place is just average, nothing to write home about. Seating is more cafeteria style where your table is inches away from the tables around you, so if you're looking for a nice ambiance, this is not it. Service was super slow and seemed disorganized. If you want good pasta, there are many better places in Atlanta to try. It's not bad, the pasta is home made, but it's just average. Meh.

It's a nice place to eat. However, I'm conflicted when it comes to the food. I know the pastas are made in-house, which is always a great thing. That said, the pastas in general are somewhat insipide; they require a lot of salt. Once you add significant amount of salt the pastas are, for the most part, very good, especially the mushroom one. Hence, my conflicting opinion. If they just required a little bit of salt that would be OK but since they require so much I have to make this comment. One of my favorite dishes is pasta, I lived in Italy for many years, so I have a great appreciation for pasta.

As seen on the Travel Channel, most amazing lasagna ever. I normally don't eat Italian food outside of cities known for this cuisine but had to try after seeing the show on which Storico was featured. My friend had the tagliatelle bolognese and I had the lasagna. Pasta was perfect, bolognese was wonderful and lasagna had some crispness around the edges. Truly world class. High energy (noisy) place and not a white tablecloth kind of place. No matter, the food is the star. Full bar but I also saw some people brought their own bottles of wine.

This is absolutely our go to restaurant! We love the food options, everything on the menu is delicious. The owners and waiters make you feel very special. We have had a party of 2, 8 and 26. Fabulous dining experience. The Chef’s Table in the kitchen is a total blast. The food is definitely authentic Italian Cusine. Always fresh and a wide variety of pasta. Gluten Free options are available. The wine list is great as well as the desserts! The retail store is super and easy to pop in and grab our favorite dishes out of their refrigerator. Grazie Storico Fresco.
