UPDATE: While the food at this bistro-type Italian restaurant was good, they increased the tip on the cheque after I left. I reconcile ALL of my credit card statements every month with my receipts and found they had changed the total amount of the cheque, thereby increasing their tip (even though I always tip well based on service). I was also blown off by the 'manager' when I called on the phone and was told "we don't do that" and "it's only $2". My advice - DON'T DINE HERE!!


This is a GREAT little restaurant for anyone with a relatively long layover (what I consider 2 hours or more) at Atlanta's Hartsfield International Airport. Actually, the airport lies within the confines of several small communities in the shadow of Atlanta (mainly Hapeville, East Point and College Park) that have great, one-of-a-kind eateries.

A quick hop on a MARTA train (Atlanta's Mass Transit System) in the airport terminal to the first stop at College Park puts you almost at the doorstep of this nice little Italian bistro. Exit the station and walk to Main Street. It's directly across from the MARTA Rail station on the corner.

Dishes are mainly pasta based but you can also order thin crust pizzas that have gotten rave reviews on www.accessatlanta.com recently. Candle lit tables serenaded by a lone saxophone player add to the ambiance of this brick walled corner business. Service is attentive however because it is a small place and often gets very busy on the weekends, you will sometimes need to flag your server down. Mixed drinks are nice and strong and prepared for you by your server eliminating the need for a bartender in this small establishment.

So if you have time while you're at the Atlanta airport (and if you've traveled through ATL you know there are always delays), make a quick trip over to College Park for dinner at this Italian restaurant. Just be sure to allow for time to navigate back through the crowds and security. Bon appetite!
