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.

We started with a fresh salad with a sweet dressing. The bolognese with noodles was delicious. We also enjoyed crispy bread dipped in olive oil we flavored with red pepper. To top it off we ordered and inhaled the light, creamy tiramisu.

Storico Fresco is probably my favorite Italian restaurant in Atlanta. The food is classic Italian executed beautifully. I’ve never had a bad dish here. If you’re new to place try the fried squash blossoms as an appetizer, the Ceci Linguine mushroom pasta, and/or the Branzino. Drinks are great too, try the Gin & Jam!

Everything on the menu here looked and tasted amazing. They also sell pre-packaged servings of their most popular options to take home with you. The space is on the loud side, be we sat outside which was nice. They also have a lively bar. Really an amazing experience.

Our service was awful. Our waiter pushed us to go ahead and order salads (which we did), but he didn't take our full order at that time. He promptly forgot us, forgot our salads, and forgot to get the rest of our order. We eventually waved him down and placed our entree order. They brought me the wrong salad which I ate anyway because I was starving, and my shrimp (whole with heads) were a pain to eat. It was so loud we were yelling just to hear each other. Too much competition in Atlanta to eat here again.

I had an 8:30 reservation on a Friday night. They finally seated us at a table at 9:35.
Hostess was sweet enough but speaking as someone who worked in the restaurant industry for years, my guess is they tried to seat too many walk-ins which crushed the small kitchen and in turn, caused extreme waits for people who actually had a reso like me. Small bar works well enough but when waiting for a table on a busy night, if you’re not one of the lucky ones to snag a bar seat, there is no good place to stand without being in the way. Once seated, we were starving so the server was kind enough to give us a comp appetizer for our wait. We then ordered three more apps. One never made it to our table. Entrees took 25 mins after appetizers were cleared.
I’d heard good things about the restaurant but after my first time experience in entertaining out-of-town guests, they failed to win me as a repeat customer.

Nice menu, well prepared food using fresh ingredients; homemade cavatelli was very good. We all enjoyed our dinner. Only real negative in that tables are very close together and it's very loud - concrete floors and very high ceilings don't help to keep the noise level down. That being said, we would return to try other dishes - also their retail market which closes around 7 pm.

The food was great and so was our waitress. But the hostess was frustrating. We asked if we could sit at another table that was open but shetold us they were saving that table to make a larger table even though the tables on both sides of it had just sat down and we didn’t push. But less than 20 min later she sat someone at that table. we were celebrating my MIL’s birthday and would have much preferred that table or simple honesty.

Storico Fresco is an outstanding restaurant! Excellent fresh pasta and fresh vegetables. The noise level, however, can get unbearable. As I understand it, the restaurant has made attempts to deal with this problem, but so far they are unsuccessful. The only way to avoid the noise is to have an early dinner. Go around 6:00 or 6:30. We had an outstanding server on our most recent visit who helped us select an appropriate wine and recommended a superb pasta dish. Most servers at Storico have an attitude and are full of themselves. Sorry to say that because the food is so good! This is a quality place and patrons want servers who understand the menu and will listen and make appropriate suggestions when asked. Service is an important part of a good meal out and Storico Fresco has to pay more attention to this aspect of their restaurant. But the food is good and that's why we keep returning!
