This is seriously the best pizza in Atlanta. The funghi di bosco with truffle oil is amazing. Plus today you can get half off with the deal from SweetPons

Came here in the late spring and the doors were open, fresh breeze flowing in, and it was a beautiful ambiance. The menu is primarily wood pizzas that were pretty good. Nice wine list.

I'm from NJ, and I haven't found a place here that does try Italian brickoven pizza's, until I came here. The pizza was incredible and reminded me of being at home. The service was good, but the reason I'm coming back is for the food,

My friend and I visited this place to have a meal, but we were not really satisfied with the quality of food. It was ok but not what we expected. It seemed that we were expecting a lot from this restaurant. However, the service was great and the staff was very nice to us. Overall, it was good but certainly not the best we've been to.

We thought the food here was good based on the number of reviews from both Citysearch and Yelp, but I found my experience lacking. The calamari wasn't crunchy, the pizzas were soggy, and the service wasn't good either.

We all love a patio in Atlanta and this restaurant has a great one. The food is lovely and very fresh. Did not have a great server for our visit. He seem very unhappy to have to take another table.

I had heard so much about Fritti, and I was very excited to check it out last night. We started with Bruschetta which was very good tasting, though I felt $9 was a little ambitious for the presentation. It looked like it was made fast, uneven pieces, and no garnish made the presentation lackluster. In its defense the flavor was very good. Next came the pizza... I ordered a quattro formaggi because a cheeze pizza will tell you everything about a pizzeria in my opinion. You should not need fancy ingredients to make it taste good.. First impression in one word : OVERRATED.
The pizza was totally wet and soggy in the middle.. almost slimy.. It is the kind of pie that just falls limp when you pick it up.. the crust in the middle is more like a skin of some sort. "Crust" is a bad word to describe it. Granted, the edges were crusty, and the best part of the dough for sure, and the cheese was very good. So I ended up scraping the cheese toward the edge and removing the very center of the slices... The feeling was mutual with the 2 other pies we got. (Veggie, and Frutti de Mare) The waiter never asked how it was, or I would have told him... My guess is this place was probably good at one time when it was new and popular.. now it seems to have rested on its trendy laurels and fancy ingredients to carry the weight.. Bottom line... I will not return... I know pizza and this by no means impressed me whatsoever... Next week we are off to Verasanos, then Antico, to see how they compare...

Bon Appetit !

Pros: Lavazza Espresso

It's been an interesting year or so with the "pizza war" in Atlanta. And among the top 3 sparring spots, (Varasano's, Fritti, Antico) Fritti absolutely wins in one category: Take home. While they are absolutely delish when eaten in-house, if you take home a margarita pie from either of the other two, by the time you get to your destination the pizza is a soggy mess. I'm unsure how Fritti does it, but their standard marg pizza carries quite well. It tastes virtually the same at home as it does at the restaurant, with big blobs of bufala mozzarella and the appropriate amount of basil (unlike Antico, which skims on the basil). I have a tough time giving the nod to which pizza is officially "the best" but Fritti is the take out champ.

Sitting next door to its higher-brow, more refined brother (Sotto Sotto), Fritti (Italian for "fried") is a slick pizza joint focusing on certified Neapolitan pizzas. Importing the gooey, fresh mozzarella and melt-in-your-mouth salamis direct from Italy, the thin, lightly charred pizzas are only part of the menu. Fried risotto balls are a must, though the combination of the crunchy/chewy calamari won't let you down either. During the warmer months, be sure to request patio seating. The sunken bar to the right, upon entrance, is perfect for a low key meal or Peroni after work.

I had read lots of glowing reviews on Yelp and CItysearch about Fritti, so thought we'd try it. When we arrived at the valet parking we were getting out of our car as Richard Blais (from Top Chef fame) was getting his car. He had just eaten at Fritti and said it was good, so I was sure our choice was correct. Unfortunately, that was not the case. We used Open Table to book our reservation, and they seated us within 5 minutes. Unfortunately, we got our table upstairs (you have to go past the restrooms and up a narrow stair) and near the air return vents. It would get warm from the ovens, then cool down when the air came on, and then warm again. This cycle happened repeatedly while we were there. Although the wait staff was pleasant and prompt, the food left a lot to be desired. We chose the calamari as it smelled wonderful, but it lacked depth of flavor. Our ceasar salads were average at best. I asked for anchovies and that actually improved mine quite a bit. As for the pizza, it was crispy on the edges and runny with a soggy crust in the middle. The toppings were scattered in clumps, so each piece we took had a differernt flavor. Overall, although the atmosphere would be fun (if we had sat downstairs), the flavorless food and fairly high prices make this a restaurant I don't need to visit again.

We had dinner at sotto sotto, it was expensive, but worth it, so we chose Fritti this time. We ordered spicy tuna as appetizer and salmon as main course, i am very small appetite person and was not hungery at all. However, their portion still suprised me---it is too small!!! Tuna appetizer is 9 dollars, but only have 4 to 5 slices of paper thin tuna, just looked like 2 slices of bacon; the salmon is 19 dollars or even more, has only a small slice, just looked like 3 fingers wide. To full our stomach, we had to order a pizza, and we found all other customers there ordered pizza only (may be they had already known that nothing at fritti is large enough as food except pizza), but pizza also tastes so so.

Well, we had lunch here and it was a disaster, the blonde waitress here on Novemember 3, 2009 at about 1:30 pm, on the outside was worthless! I don't know if it was because she was blonde or just....I don't know. But she manage to get both me and my wife's order all wrong, then wanted to tell us that she brought out what we ordered! I just don't know why she did not write any of it down?? what a ditz! We won't return UNLESS we hand her what we want, written down by US!

Last time I was here there was an Italian guy directing the kitchen - the pizza was superb. This time (three days ago) he wasn't there and the food was bad, yes, bad. Three miniature scraps of overpriced bruschetta followed by pizza wallowing in soggy tomato sauce. Only one pizza out of the four we had was adequate - the rest were overpriced and under-flavored. And they are not cheap. Reading through the other reviews this place has gone hot and cold over the years. It's really really cold right now, go somewhere else.

I am truly NOT a pizza fan; someone posted about being from New Haven, and how their pizza's the best? Not so. Lived there over ten years. ("apizza?" please.)

Brooklyn has better street corner pizza shops...
However, I digress.

We were looking for some place different. We decided to try Fritti. I opted for the Bianca (white, sauceless) pizza, as I am leery about red sauce that is not cooked by me or my mom..;-).

After about 10 min, we were served....it was WONDERFUL. Truly.

Service? eh. Waitress waited until we were just about done to ask if everything was fine (it was, but my husband, who managed a large restaurant years ago, noticed that she didn't check back soon enough.) We still left a great tip.

We had a slight wait-it was 10 pm on a Friday. Were offered a seat in the lower, uncovered patio, but declined, as people were smoking, and it was really obvious. We were glad we did-five minutes after we were seated, the sky opened up-thunder, lightning-the works!

We are definitely planning a trip back,and I am bringing visiting friends there for part of a fun night out.

Great pizza, very interesting toppings. They have an upstairs area that is excellent for large groups. The appetizers I had were very good as well. Close to Dad's Garage and great option pre-theatre.

This place has great pizza! They also have great fried mushrooms. My only complaint really is that it is so loud. We took my in-laws and sat outside and it was still really loud. However, the pizza almost makes it worth it.

Call me crazy, but pizza has never been one of my favorite foods. However, Fritti has some of the best I have had in Atlanta. Fritti does not have the most comfortable seating areas but it has an overall fun and hip vibe, and they play great music, in fact my boyfriend wanted to stay there and hang out rather than go to any other bar/club. The hostess was wonderful and catered to our needs (she switched tables for us and also gave us a new server since the one we were supposed to have never greeted us after sitting at the table for fifteen minutes). Other than that mishap, dinner was great. We love to try calamari everywhere we go to find the best. The calamari here was sub par, to be quite honest it is no better than calamari at every other Italian restaurant including the Olive Garden. I would suggest serving it with a creamier, aioli rather than the generic marinara sauce, which really tasted like some canned Ragu. Anyhow, on a great note, the Manzo, or Grilled Beef Tenderloin and Rosemary appetizer was wonderful. The beef was cooked perfectly and not over done. It was crusted in parmesean cheese and served on a bed of arugula, vinaigrette, and cheese. I would also strongly recommend the Maialona pizza. It comes with salame, cotto ham, sausage, pancetta, black olives. It is delicious. They separate all of the meats so you can get a taste of each. The sausage was creamy and rich, my favorite of the ingredients. If you like seafood, the Fritti Di Mare is good. It contains calamari, mussels, shrimp, and scallops. However, it is cheese less so if you want cheese you must pay an extra $2. I would definetly suggest Fritti if you want a night out and are tired of eating the same old stuff, i.e. pizza. We had been to Piebar many times (my significant other LOVES pizza, all kinds) and do not miss it one bit.

I have never written a review for any restaurant in my life, but in this case I think it is necessary.

Overall my experience at Fritti was ok. The only problem was our waitress who seemed like she may have been on another planet. Her knowledge of the beers was limited and she seemed irritated with my table of 4 when we asked questions. The disturbing part was that after we paid our bill with cash which totaled $163.00 (including a $27.00 tip mind you), we were approached by the manager outside at the valet parking who told us that our cash was short by $60.00. He asked if our experience was bad because we didn't leave enough money. I immediately told him that I am the one who paid the bill, and that I left $163.00 and that he may want to check with our waitress.

The strange part was that after she took our money, we sat at our table finishing our beers for at least another 25 minutes. Why didn't he (or the waitress for that matter) approach us while we were sitting there? Why wait as we were about to get into our car? I try not to be one of a conspiracy theory, but it just seems a little strange to me. Almost like it was planned, so maybe someone could make a little extra money that evening????

I won't be back, and I plan to tell everyone I know about the money disappearance situation because that seems sketchy to me.

My date and I went on Friday night around 7:30. The food was great quality and flavorful, although I would not recommend to someone looking for a typical pizza joint. The toppings are gourmet and topped with fine cheeses on a Napolenta style crust i.e. tender, limp thin pie with crispy outer ring crust. The seating was crowded and very "social" as you will be sitting 16" from a stanger with your back against a lit brick wall with continuous booth/bench style seating. The lighting, colors, and finishes are romantic and warm, althought the noise level and aforementioned privacy issues seem to stand in the way. The easedropping is easy because you have to talk loud even at a 2-person table and you have about 20 people within a 10 foot radius. I give it a kid friendly check as there were many there although you couldn't hear the crying and screaming over the already omnipotent sound level. The service was outstanding and the wine list was ample yet ordinary. The prices are good for the food quality, understanding that as it pertains to quantity. We ordered a single pie (11") to share and the bruschetta appetizer (3 pcs.) with a single bottle of $32 chianti and our bill was $56.00 before tip. This was enough for us but some may want to add another $13.00 pie to that for larger appetites.

I recently dined at Fritti. Myself and 2 friends went on a Saturday evening, there was a 10 minute wait but we ordered cocktails that were VERY strong! They were great! We ordered the calamari and lamb to start, both were amazing. The calamari was crunchy, not chewy.The lamb was cooked to perfection. We ordered a pizza with 3 types of meat, it was OKAY. Kind of plain, I guess that was the point. I wasn't that impressed with the pizza itself. The staff was great. Our server was very nice and helpful with understanding the menu. A manager even came by to check in on us. All around I would go back just for the appetizers and drinks.

I have been meaning to review Fritti ever since we returned from Italy. It definitely is just like the upscale pizza places that we visited on our trip to Venice and Milan.

I have to say, I found the prior review pretty funny! In fairness to the reviewer I don't know where one would go in Atlanta to get New Haven style "Apizza" but if you want Italian style Fritti is exactly how they do in Italy. We have been to Fritti twice in the 5 weeks since we returned, and while we are not getting to people watch in Italy (boo) we are getting to enjoy very authentic food.

If you are homesick (or vacation-sick) for Italy definitely go here to reminisce.

I have been meaning to review Fritti ever since we returned from Italy. It definitely is just like the upscale pizza places that we visited on our trip to Venice and Milan.

I have to say, I found the prior review pretty funny! In fairness to the reviewer I don't know where one would go in Atlanta to get New Haven style "Apizza" but if you want Italian style Fritti is exactly how they do in Italy. We have been to Fritti twice in the 5 weeks since we returned, and while we are not getting to people watch in Italy (boo) we are getting to enjoy very authentic food.

If you are homesick (or vacation-sick) for Italy definitely go here to reminisce.

Pros: Affordable, authentic style Italian pizza in a happening atmosphere

Cons: patio is on a busier street

.

Just got back from Fritti as I was having a serious pizza jones, cannot express how disappointed I was. Had been here a few times before and the food has always been good however I will not be returning. I ordered a sausage and roasted pepper pizza and I knew I was in trouble when it showed up at my table within 5 minutes, it was a puddle of undercooked goo. The crust was barely darkened and the dough was white, awful. I told my waitress and she obligingly took it back and proceeded to tell me the "head chef" says that is how the make them. I grew up and lived in New Haven, Ct most of my life and have been schooled in the delights of Neapolitan apizza (Wooster St), this alleged chef should make a pilgrimage there and learn the fine art of apizza making, and yes in New Haven it's spelled Apizza.

Pros: Decent atmosphere

Cons: Awful pizza

If you want authentic pizza, Fitti is the place to go. It is sort of crowded and loud, but the food is great, especially the thin crust pizza. It is across the street from Usher's Grape restaurant.

I recently had one of the best restaurant experiences, Ever. After searching long and hard for a restaurant that could easily accomodate the large group that i was hosting, I found the wondeful loft space at Fritti. The management allowed us to decorate the space how we wanted, bring our own cake, and consistantly checked in on us to make sure that everything was running smoothly. The service was top notch and everyone had a great attitude. I will keep Fritti in mind for any future events and would definitely reccomend it to anyone wanting great pizza, drinks, and on original experience.

After checking out some of the new restaurants in Inman Park and having mediocre experiences, my husband and I decided to go back to our favorite neighborhood spot Fritti!!! We shared a couple of our favorite appetizers (the grilled lamb is amazing) and we each got a pizza. My husband loves the prosciutto pizza with fresh arugula and my old time favorite is the Regina Margherita. Our server was knowledgeable about the wine list and even remembered which wine we got the last time we came! Love it! The Pizzas are always good, service is fantastic and i can't wait untill we go again.

My boyfriend and I love to go to Fritti on Sunday afternoons for brunch. The patio area is great -- it's open but completely covered so you have that feeling of sitting outside without the uncomfortable feeling of the sun blinding you. Also, you can't beat Bellinis for $4! Don't miss the robiola fritta -- it's an arugula salad with crispy fried melty goat cheese and roasted peppers on it and definitely one of my favorites.

Sunday is the day of rest, and drinking Bellini's and eating great food! Fritti is the place to do that in Atlanta, it's relaxing, reasonably priced, and the service is good. When it's warm I recommend sitting in the restaurant, near the large open front windows, you get the sun and the shade and a great breeze!

My friends and I go to brunch at least twice a month. May I suggest the Pizza's and the chicken salad sandwich. They are the best around and $4.00 Bellini drinks make any day good. They have an outdoor area that's cozy especially in the spring time. Whether you live here or are just passing through, it's a must if your hungry and don't want to spend a crazy amount of money.

I recently took my girlfriend to Fritti for dinner before going to a show at the Variety Playhouse. We have heard great things from friends but this was our first experience at Fritti. I must say I was very impressed when first walking into this little spot. I'm glad we had the presence of mind to call ahead and make a reservation because when we got there the restaurant was jam-packed with people (a good sign). We were promptly seated by the hostess at a table on the patio. I really can't say enough about how much we both liked the atmosphere of the restaurant. The decor was modern and hip and the place was full of beautiful people. Within a minute after being seated our server came over and brought us water and offered us a drink from the bar. He was very knowledgeable of the wine list and helped both of us find exactly what we were looking for. Since neither of us know that much about Italian wine it was a relief to see that not only did he know what he was talking about he also listened and asked us questions about what we like to drink rather than trying to sell us the most expensive things on the list. After he brought us our wine he came back a couple of minutes later to make sure what we selected was exactly what we were looking for and to see if we had any questions about the menu items. Since we were both very happy with the wine he helped us select we asked him for recommendations on the food as well. We started with the fried mushroom appetizer topped with truffle oil. Delicious! We split the caprese salad and a skewer of diver scallops as our next course. We weren't planning on getting a pizza but the first two courses were so good and we still had some time before our show started so we asked our server to bring us out his favorite pizza. It only took a few minutes for the most delicious pizza i've ever tasted to be placed on our table, called the Toscana. We were both very impressed with everything and will definitely be back soon!

Pros: Great food! Knowledgeable service. Very nice spot.

Cons: I would recommend making reservations as I hear it is busy most every night.

I've been coming to Fritti for about three years and have always enjoyed it...until last night that is. My date and I showed up around 10:30 - a bit late I know but the Website says they serve until 11 PM - and were grudgingly seated only to be told that, while the kitchen was still open, the bartender had already closed out. As a result, we could have no drinks. Now, why any place would keep high-cost kitchen staff on while cutting a $3/hour bartender is beyond me, all the more so since bar sales are much higher margin. Moreover, who wants to have dinner without a glass of wine? All this would have been okay, had it not been for the rude, don't-give-a-damn attitude and tone of the staff. We quickly took our business elsewhere. I've noticed several reviews that mention bad or slow service at Fritti lately. Pride comes before the fall, they say, and perhaps it's time to move on and try some of the newer places in Inman Park..?

Read some of the recent reviews about customer service and quality of pizza. The only thing good about this place is the atmosphere...other than that, nothing else was good. First of all, the service is super slow. The waitress greeted us and brought us waters...then there was no check back for about 15 minutes. She came back 15 minutes later and didn't even ask if we wanted anything else to drink. She directly asked if we were ready to order. We gave an order for an appetizer, which I clearly stated we wanted it out before our main meal, and then for our main meals.

We waited for another 20 minutes and she came back to tell us our main meals would be out shortly...yet not appetizer was brought to our table yet. I told her that I didn't want the appetizer to come with the meal...she then said, "no, I'll bring it out right away". 10 minutes pass before she brings out the appetizer...which I could tell was just cooked because it was hot. She either forgot to ring it up or she was going to bring it with the meal.

Our meals come out shortly thereafter and the pizzas you could tell had already been sitting out for a little while..the pizzas were soggy. After the meal was delivered, the waitress never checked back with us about how our meal was...by that time, we were just hungry and didn't want to go through the hassle of complaining. The only time the waitress would refill our waters was when we tracked her down and asked her to.

Overall, if you like soggy pizza and no service, come here...other than that, you'll be better off eating at Pizza Hut or ordering from Papa John's.

I recently visited Fritti with my wife and a group of friends. I was first struck with the space. It has two patios, one covered, one uncovered, a main inside dining area, and a loft area. This place can accomidate any group, no matter the size. We were greeted with a smile by a lovely, courteous hostess and seated right away (it was very busy and we had no reservation). Our server greeted us quickly, and was very knowledgeable, and helpful. Having never dined at Fritti before we decided to try as many of the menu items as possible. The salads were very fresh and flavourful, the fried mushrooms were to die for, and the pizza was by far the best I have tasted since visiting Italy in the late nineties. The manager came over to ask how everything was, and we entered into a conversation about Italian wine. Not only was he a wonderful ambassador for the restaurant, but he was incredibly knowledgable about the wine list. He explained about the Italian wine making process, different regions, and vintages. We enjoyed it very much as none of us knew much about Italian wine. To end the evening we enjoye a few traditional Italian desserts, the moscarpone was absolutely delicious. This was one of the most enjoyable restaurant experiences I have had in Atlanta.

Thank You Fritti for a Wonderful Evening.

I had a great experience at fritti recently. The pizza is as close to real pizza from naples as you can get, and the atmosphere is awesome! Cool music and very attentive service make for a great experience, and the value for an intown restaurant can't be beat!!

Met friends here recently for a week-night dinner and it is a cute spot, but the service and food is not up to par.

The pizza was not flavorful and was extremely oily, so oily that I was sick the remainder of the night. Our service was not very friendly and not attentive.

I would not recommend this restaurant if you want good authentic Italian pizza.

Are you kidding me? This place needs a serious reality check. Sure, the decor is hip and the people are beautiful (mostly), but the menu is limited, the pizza is mediocre, and the food is way overpriced. Ordered what was supposed to be a salad with tuna, and instead, I received three paper-thin slices of raw tuna, garnished with a few lonely sprigs of infant arugula - okay, I thought to myself, perhaps a little tuna carpaccio will serve as a nice appetizer, let's see how it is. The dish wasn't even seasoned, and there was no citrus (lemon juice? Is it so difficult to put lemon juice on the fish? How about some salt? At least some olive oil? Hello?). Bland and completely unsatisfying, as if the chef just sort of slapped it on the plate and sent it away in frustration. Moving right along to the pizza. Undercooked. When we spoke to our waiter about the food and our dissatisfaction, he said, in a haughty tone of voice, "Didn't you hear me when I told you that the tuna salad had only, like, three little pieces of fish?" Uh, no, dude, we didn't, and even if we had, isn't it your job to make recommendations from the menu rather than scold your customers for having an issue with the food they've been served? Moreover, one of our party ordered what was optimistically described as a "half chicken." Must be the smallest chicken on earth. What arrived at the table was a cocktail napkin-sized plate and a single skewer of broiled chicken nuggets, garnished with incongruous cucumber pieces and red onion. Is this what casual-but-trendy dining in the ATL has come to? Overpriced micro-food and the dubious ministrations of a floppy-haired, sneering service staff? Should have stayed home and ordered in.

If you want better service and better pizza go down the street to Johnnys. Your pocketbook will thank you as well. The service at Fritti is awful. The food is over-priced, under cooked and served with an attitude of; "if you don't like it, to bad". I ordered a salad for my meal, picked one that was with some fancy beef for $10 from the menu. When it showed up with maybe a 1/4 cup of greens four or five small pieces of cheese and three paper thin slices of beef. I ask the server if this was the $10 salad and she just nodded and without a blink asked if I'd like to speak with the manager. Thats when it really went down hill. He was less then polite and did nothing to help except say, in a very snide way, that he could bring over some more greens. I thought there was no-way after the way he talked to me was I going to eat anything else. My wife and 4 of our friends were really put off by the way the MANAGER'S attitude was. I told the manager that I needed nothing else. I was going to write it off as he was just having a bad day. UNTIL I saw him at the host stand near the steps to the bar look at our table and give us a dirty look. I asked my server to please get me the owners name and a way to contact him. She said she would bring over a card with the info. Insted the manager brought it over and after he told us that we could contact the owner via email, I told him that I saw the "look" he gave us and that I was willing to write the night off as just an off night for him, until I saw "the look". He ignored my comment and went back to defending the salad. I told him I did not want to discuss it with him anymore and asked him to leave our table so my friends could finish their meal. He walked away and I tried a bite of my wifes pizza and it was ok, a little under cooked, but not horrible. So if you like ok food and being treated awful go there and they will fix you right up. If not, there are some other choices around the neighborhood that are much better.

My GF and I went to Fritti's about a month ago expecting a nice dinner.
We had a horrible server. He came up to the table, didn't say hello or smile or welcome us, instead angrily asked "what do you want?" WE were completely shocked by his blatantly rude demeanor, so we asked his name and his suggestions about the menu. He literally said, "yea its all pizza, what do you want?" Wine bottle was not presented and he opened it while walking across the restaurant, spilt sizable amount on the table, poured into obviously dirty glasses, and gave us no prior taste.
After our appetizer (which was very tasty!) he grabbed our dirty forks by the tines and loudly dropped them back on the table. Next we received our pizza as it was loudly dropped on the table sending a few toppings into my lap. We had no knives, no plates, empty water glasses, and a greasy uncut pizza. HE promptly left with no offer to bring the items we needed to eat our dinner. After a few minutes of the food getting cold and being completely ignored, i went up to the server station and asked for plates, clean silverware and water, to which a tall bald guy (prob. assistant manager) rudely told me to "Sit down." We ate cold pizza, were covered in the wine and toppings the server spilled on us, and utterly shocked and almost humored at the worst service and experience we had ever had. After two bites of cold pizza (which was overpriced and consisted of greasy cheese on pita bread with about 5 pieces of sausage topping), the server put our check on the table and told us to please hurry and pay him. We left the check there until we finished our unremarkable dinner. After signing our bill, he took the check almost immediately (we still had wine and food to finish) and loudly cursed us on his way back to the kitchen. Needless to say I demanded to speak with the manager. Received no comped meal and will definitely not go back, EVER.
Digorno's and a bottle of wine at home makes for a much better date.

Went there Saturday night for a quck meal before Dads Garage.

Strike one: Sat down and ordered ice tea - oops the waiter without apology says that don't serve any ice tea sweet or otherwise.That was a first for me in any restaurant in any state or county I have ever been to.

Strike two: After salads, our pizza was delivered. We asked the waiter if it could be sliced or if we could get a pizza cutter again he abruptly said no and walked away - this restaurant (that only serves pizza) does not cut the pizza or give you adequate utensils to cut it yourself. Again strange.

Strike three: They don't take Discover cards.

Overall the for average pizza not worth the trouble.

We asked the waiter if it could be sliced or if we could get a pizza cutter again he abruptly said no and walked away - this restaurant (that only serves pizza) does not cut the pizza or give you adequate utensils to cut it yourself. Again strange.

Strike three: They don't take Discover cards.

Overall the for average pizza not worth the trouble.

I have dined at sottosotto and fritti for the past three years. The food is mediocre at best and the service is moody. However, fritti and sottosotto are a staple of inman park, just like Buddy's and Manual's. Fritti has a personality that many restaurants don't have. I hate candy coated anything and you will never find that at Fritti and SottoSotto.

I was in town visiting with a friend of mine and we happened in to Fritti on a Thursday night. We didn't have a reservation but it appeared we didn't need one. While the host was friendly and our server was very helpful, we found the pizza inconsistent. The appetizer, risotto and sausage ball, was burnt. We ordered a Margherita pizza and it looked like someone had poured water on it when it arrived at the table. We noticed a dramatic switch in the atmosphere in the restaurant from the last time we went (sometime in April). There was a short bald man screaming at the servers and the rest of the staff; who we found out was the owner of the restaurant. He was very demeaning to his staff and really dampened the atmosphere of the restaurant, all eyes were on the screaming man. Although this was my first bad experience (out of 2 visits) its definitely the one that will keep me from coming back. That man should not be allowed to interact with anybody and as no manager stepped in combined with the looks on the staff's faces, I can only assume he does it regularly.

Pros: our server was delightful and very knowledgeable

Cons: a little bald man screaming at people; it's like a d-rated movie about italian pizzarias

I have probably dined at Fritti over twenty times in the past year and had sensational experiences, which is why I find it VERY unfortunate and shocking that my most recent dining experience was so horrific. My boyfriend and I went in on a Sunday night at around 9:20. We have both been in the hospitality industry for years, so we know that it's frowned upon to walk into a restaurant with an within a certain amount of time before closing, however, we were walking by and the patio was still slam packed with guests. The hostess and our server were both very congenial. We ordered a bottle of wine and our food all at once. The bresaola di tonno and the pizza with balsamic, gorgonzola, and pineapple are among our favorites. The meal and the service were phenomenal, contrary to many of the other poor reviews on service. It was not until the end of our dinner that I became disenchanted with the experience. My (very easy-going) boyfriend noticed a nearby female server loudly stacking the chairs around our table. At the time, I thought that he may have been imagining things. Prior to leaving, he excused himself to the restroom and I was pouring out the remainder of our wine when the said female server removed his chair from the table (where I was still sitting) and stacked it along with the other chairs. I said nothing because I was speechless with shock. Mind you, this was at about 10:20 (only 20 minutes after the KITCHEN closed) and there were still 2 other tables in the restaurant. When my boyfriend returned he politely asked the server why she took the chair and she snidely argued with him for about 15 minutes that we should not be keeping the staff there after 10:00. This ruined the entire evening. I later contacted the owner and he seemed very uninterested in the complaint. It?s been 4 months since and I am still in disbelief. I have NEVER been treated so inhospitably.

Pros: awesome atmosphere, great food

Cons: rude staff member

The food was greasy, the space was cramped and the tables too close together. The hostess explained to us that the air conditioning wasn't working to explain the rediculous heat. It's too much to pay for mediocre pizza.

My fiance and I went here on our first date and LOVED IT!!!!!!!! The pizza is so good, even though they don't cut it for you, which we thought was really weird, but it is sooooo good! They also have these croquettes(sp?) that are a great appetizer. The bartenders are really nice. Sometimes on the weekends we will stop by there just to have a couple of drinks, but we usually HAVE TO order something off of the menu. Def. a great restaurant!

Pros: Delicious Food

Cons: Pizzas are not cut for you-hard to eat

This Saturday afternoon, was our first visit back here in many years. I guess because we are just too lazy, we never go out for pizza. But after visiting friends in Inman Park, we stopped back in. We recently read about the International Award from Italy, with Fritti being one of only two, awarded in the states, for authentic pizza. I don't really care about the complaints about service, just bring me a drink, and one of these pies! Pure heaven! Thin, crispy, right amount of cheese, and the toppings are better than any. Even better than we've had in Little Italy-NYC. Bravo!

Pros: Best Authentic Pizza, Anywhere!

Cons: Service Can Be A Little Trying! Who Cares With Pie Like This!

I recently moved to Atlanta from New York City, the capital of street vendors and great pizza. If you have ever had a slice, you know what I mean. I had spent some time in the south years ago and must admit that I've always held a slight prejudice against it's pizza. It's true, sorry, but I'm an Italian girl from nyc. Fritti has aloud my taste buds to blossom once more proving that there is good pizza to be had in the south. Everything was just as I would expect it to be from an Italian bistro. The crust was crisp and tasty and the sauce just right. I found the service to be attentive and helpful with my questions concerning the menu. Also, something I found to be impressive was their wine knowledge. I sat out on the covered patio which provided a hip, but relaxing atmosphere for my dining experience. We ordered everything from apps to dessert including some really good espresso drinks and everything was great. I recommend starting with one of their light salads (Robiola Fritta) and then a few pizzas for the table. We had the Strachinella, the Crudo E Rucola, and the Ananas Gorgonzola. TRY THESE PIZZAS!!! For dessert we all shared the Panna Cotta and a Lemon Ricotta Cheesecake. Molto Bene.

Pros: The Valet made parking in Inman Park a breeze.

Cons: It's not heartbreaking, but I could have used some terimisue.

I've been to Fritti a half dozen times, and each time I've had a very good experience. The place is quite trendy, with trendy people drinking trendy drinks, but I never feel out of place there (no comment on my own trendiness! heh) and the servers/hostesses are helpful and accommodating, just as they should be. I never make a reservation, and sometimes (usually) we end up having a drink at the (crowded) bar before being seated, but it's never more than 20-25 minutes or so, which I consider to be pretty darn quick for a Friday or Saturday night without reservations. The servers can always recommend a good wine and deliver the food with good timing; in other words, not so fast that you feel rushed, not so slow that you feel neglected. I always get the insalata mista to start, which is leafy and green. The pizzas are really delicious with careful attention to good cheeses and sauces, and original toppings you can't get anywhere else. At almost every restaurant, if you go there enough eventually something will go wrong, but I can honestly say I've never had a bad dining experience at Fritti. You should go!

After visiting Fritti restaurant for the first time, I am pleased to say that I thoroughly enjoyed my dining experience. Once I arrived at the restaurant I was greeted with a big smile by the hostess and was sat immediately. Then our server promptly greeted our table and gave excellent wine and menu recommendations to ensure our dining experience was memorable. We started off with the Funghi Fritti , (fried mushrooms with truffle oil), & Calamari, As our main entree, we ordered the Speck e Rucola & Sorrentina Pizzas. Not only did the food exceed our expectations, but the service was impeccable. Great atmosphere, energetic staff, and terrific food!!!
