    I believe we may have hit a night when the kitchen was having a tough night. The ravioli though tasty was mushy. The pasta dish I ordered was again overcooked - though the sauce was flavorful. The Chicken Milanese was awful - a heavily breaded & deep fried dried out piece hidden under several large pieces of sliced provolone cheese. The staff were very pleasant & accommodating but the service was slow, again I feel that the kitchen was having issues. The outside dining consists of tables set up in the entry to the restaurant & shops in the complex. I have never had to write a poor review before. You can usually count on Open Table’s recommendations. This was so highly rated - thought I’d best share my, hopefully unusual, experience.

    We went to Ombra Cucina to celebrate my birthday. Our party consisted of my wife, daughter and myself. The service was excellent and the menu presented many good options. I was very surprised that one of my favorite dishes, soft shell crabs was a special for the evening. We all enjoyed our appetizers, main dishes and desserts. This restaurant has always been excellent every time we come for dinner.

    My wife is Italian. Her aunt is one of the finest cooks ever. Ombra far exceeded my wife’s expectations, which is very hard to do. And I quote - “best veal I’ve ever had”. We had the Veal Piemontese. Her uncle was from Piemonte… She would know. We would literally drive the five hours from Atlanta to eat here. Probably will in a few weeks. And it’s not like Atlanta doesn’t have a thousand great places to eat. And the lemon sorbet - just do it. The presentation was unique and lovely.

    We were seated in the bar area and it was noisy…due in large part to a group of 6 seated near us and speaking very loudly. The service and food were very, very good. The wine by the glass was too expensive. The three course early dining menu was an excellent value. However, the least expensive glass of Pino Grigio was $13, then $15, then more than that! They did not offer a more reasonably priced decent house wine by the glass.

    We were there for an 87th birthday dinner, a group of 5. The ambiance is very cozy and the noise level moderate (good). The service was great; pleasant, timely, helpful and unobtrusive. The food was delicious. The calamari was the best we have ever had and each entre was very well received from the tagliatelle bolognese to the gnocchi to the penne. Great sauces. We will go back again and highly recommend it.
