I have to start by saying that my hubby and I are foodies! We LOVE good food. With that being said, let me say that this place is amazing. The atmosphere is cozy, romantic and a great place to hang out with friends. I will say that the sitting quarters are a little cramped but the overall estalgia of the... More

We chose this restaurant for our aniversary with my girlfriend, the decoration and the ambient seemed very nice for a romantic dinner. We were foolish to not look at the menu before we walked inside, because the prices were high enough to quit your hick up. The waiter was very kind with her atention and made a very good introduction... More

I recently rented the entire restaurant for a private function and can't say enough positives on the food quality, service and atmosphere. The meatballs were great with a little kick to them. Highly recommend! There is an outside deck in the rear of the restaurant as well as beautiful bar area inside.

We were only in ATL for the night and made the trip out to 246 to try it out. So happy we did! Service was excellent from the start. Menu was small but had something we both wanted. Their signature shrimp fra diavlo was the best my husband has ever had and my capinelli bolognese was exceptional. Loved the open... More

Chef Justin did it again. Four of us had dinner there last week and it was as wonderful as our past visits. Justin tried out some new dishes on us and they were fantastic, per usual. We added a few reliables (the squid ink spaghetti is one of my all-time favorite pasta dishes - anywhere) and Justin mixed in innovative... More

No. 246 is a great choice for a date, a night out with friends, or even a family dinner. I've never been disappointed by the food or service. Always solid.

Enjoyed a lovely dinner here recently with my friend. The pastas are fresh made, the wine list compact yet complete, and the smell from the open kitchen was heavenly! The menu has several options that bring a special and enjoyable 246 twist to Italian standards like lasagne. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful! Highly recommend :)

A friend and I had dinner at No. 246 during the 2016 Decatur Book Festival. We ate early (7:30) so the restaurant was quiet but atmospheric. The menu is brief but seems to offer something for everyone. Good wine list. We had the baked ricotta appetizer, scallops, and eggplant pasta. My dinner companion said the scallop dish was one of...

We have visited this restaurant on a number of occasions and have never been disappointed. Their food is delicious, fresh and locally sourced, which means there are usually new seasonal treats appearing on the menu. They offer a chef's table for the more adventurous foodie, as well as several classic Italian options for the more conservative diner. This restaurant does... More

I'd like to give this restaurant more stars but I just cannot do it. I show up there every few months hoping that they can replicate the great meal I had there soon after they opened. I'm always disappointed. This week service was very good, dining room was super loud, and the food was just standard fare. In the past... More
