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.

Great food and service. Very crowded and VERY noisy

Pastas dishes were great. The fried squash blossoms were a bit heavy-handed but the other items we had made up for them. The noise level is a bit deafening, especially when music is added (we asked for it to be turned down). It can be quite busy and the service was slow at times but we are already looking forward to returning.

Storico Fresco is my favorite restaurant in Buckhead. Truly Italian! The board cheese and meat is a must. My kids love it! The pastas are spectacular and the portions are just right, no too little no to much. Our favorite main plate is the pork shank is delicious, so tender, not dry and the polenta side is perfect. Desserts... it’s the toughest moment of the meal. All of them are so good! But if you want to try something Italian that you can’t get in other Italian restaurants, choose Burn ricotta pie! Perfect to share with kids or friends. If you are having lunch by yourself, affogato is my choice. The retail store is also excellent. I’m really happy for having an authentic Italian and not an American Italian restaurant where all dishes are huge but lack of authentic Italian flavor and quality. Book in advance for dinner!

The cuisine at Storico Fresco is very good and portions are plentiful. There are many interesting choices on the menu. The two things that made the evening less than ideal were the high noise level and the 'overly efficient' table service. Some of our plates were whisked away before we could even put down our forks and knives from the last bite. The wine bottle was whisked away with about a half glass remaining inside. We finally had to ask one of the servers to leave us in peace. The rush to clear a table is very common in American restaurants (sadly!) but this was extreme even by American standards.

Great food. Much better than most southern Italian restaurants. The ingredients were fresh, and nearly as good as that you’d find in NYC. However it was just a bit shy of perfect. Overall a great experience.

I live nearby and have been a steady customer. The staff is well trained and tend to stay adding an element of predictable and consistent service. I have enjoyed my ventures there and frankly, if someone doesn’t enjoy the menu, the should go home and eat Chef Bogarde from a can.

This place is an awesome authentic pasta place. It gets kind of loud but I guess thats a good thing with so many people in the restaurant.
I had the fried chicken and it was salty. So I took the skin off but still it was a bit salty, but everything else was superb. The meat and cheeseboard was excellent and the squid ink pasta was excellent as well.

We had an amazing experience the first time we went here and were excited to go back. Unfortunately, there will not be a third time. Our server was incredibly rude, waited over 30 minutes to take our drink orders, and we waited for nearly two hours for our entrees and had to hunt down another server to get our check. Also, very loud acoustics (at least on a Saturday night), so not a great place for conversation.

Best meal we’ve had in Atlanta in a long time. This was our 4th visit to Storico. Everything from the appetizers (squash blossoms, salmon bruschetta, artichokes) to entrees were incredible! Best cacio e pepper in life, divine! Service was great, cocktails delicious- overall amazing experience. Will be back soon!

Got there early to grab dinner before a show. 5:30. I had a reservation but chose to sit at the bar because the dinning room was empty. Food, wine and desserts were all great

Been meaning to try this place since it opened. Loved the atmosphere and the service was great. Our waitress last night was so knowledgeable and recommended great wines and some great entrees. Went with the meat and cheese board and the ravioli spinaci. Definitely a great Italian place ITP.

Wonderful Food. Attentive service. Your mouth will think it's in a Tuscan hillside restaurant. Your ears will think they are behind an airliner. It is loud. And every chef's table in the kitchen area occupied with at least one birthday party it was louder than normal. The food is fantastic. All fresh-made pastas. The fried chicken (Italian?) may be the best thing on the menu. The hanger steak is excellent. Desserts were tasty and the Stuffed Squash Blossom appetizer is always impressive. But it is loud. We often go for lunch. Not as many people. Quieter and still amazing food. It's not a fancy place but it is stuffed to the gills with people excited about eating great food.

Our group had mixed reviews about this place. The noise level on Saturday night was a detractor which probably affected our opinion of this restaurant.

Great dishes included the spinach ravioli - delicioso! The appetizers were excellent from the brussel sprouts to the cauliflower to the meat/cheese tray (they need to give more bread from the start - too few pieces for our hungry crew). Less impressive was the cream pasta with mushrooms - not too flavorful. And, the lasagne was just okay. Desserts were very good. Wine list was also impressive. Overall, our group of 6 gave it a 3.0 - 4.0 rating on a 5.0 scale.

Probably better to go when you don't have to scream to be heard with everyone saying, "what did you say" before engaging in a conversation.

We went on a Saturday evening and were seated outside on the small patio outside the restaurant entrance. We heard car buzz throughout the evening in busy Buckhead. Lunch might be a better time for the patio experience. There was a good variety of pasta dishes on the menu and the food tasted good. While I enjoyed the lasagna, the homemade spinach noodles were very thin and the bolognese sauce overpowered the dish.
