Veni Vidi Vici Weekly Restaurant Review

I love Italian Restaurants.  My dining experience at  Veni Vidi Vici was delightful.  Veni Vidi Vici opened their doors in 1990 and serve Classic Italian cuisine.  Hand made pasta, rotisserie meat, lovely desserts and an extensive Wine list is their recipe for a Classy Restaurant.  This five star restaurant, in my opinion, is definitely a recommendation from me!

Okay now for some trivia....

Italian's favorite salad, Caprese.  Absolutely delightful.  Tomatoes were tender and juicy bursting with sweetness.

Ravioli filled with rotisserie meats and fontina cheese, brown butter, sage and pecans.  The ingredients of the dish served with the sauteed spinach was a divine creation of excellence.

I have always felt like Bruschetta was a glorified pizza. shhh don' tell the chef!  The roasted tomatoes and calabrese burrata blended together was fabulous!

The grilled veal chop with arugula and grilled portabellas was tasty, tender which tantalized me for more!
The Fresh Market fish of the Day was Snapper! The whole fish is roasted with fennel and olives. Tasted wonderfully fresh and was presented on the plate remarkably.

Located on 14th Street in Midtown Atlanta, delicious food, reasonably priced and fantastic service!  Our waiter was superb!  Ivan (pronounced Evon) was exceptional in his recommendations!  Ask for him!
