I've lived in Atlanta for almost 8 years now, and I'm ashamed to say that I only recently tried Ippolitos. Previously, my family had frequented Scalini's, but Ippolitos far surpases them both service and food-wise.\r
I've been to the Kennesaw location 3 times now and the Alpharetta location once. Service is outstanding at each of the locations and the food is nothing but excellent. I've brought family there from out-of-town (Philadelphia, PA where they have a lot of great Italian) and they absolutely loved it! I've ordered a different meal each time I've been there and have tried my wife's meals as well. I love it all! Great pasta... great sauces... yummy yummy rolls. Just don't get filled up on the rolls because they bring out a lot of food. Pretty much everyone leaving the restaurant takes a box with them.\r
I can't say enough about Ippolitos! Go and try it!
Pros: Outstanding food! Outstanding Service! Great atmosphere! Reservations accepted for large groups.
Cons: You may not be able to park real close to the restaurant, but there is plenty of parking in the shopping center. Long waits can occur on weekends and late in the week.
