There is one trait that all flight attendants most definitely have in common, and that is flexibility. Things don’t always go our way and we can’t always get what we want. Especially when there is a mammoth snowstorm named Jonas hitting the East Coast of the United States. I had been looking forward to my Savannah, GA layover all month. Given the amount of snow that fell from January 22 – 24, however, it was inevitable that the call came from crew scheduling – REROUTE! So my Savannah layover became an Atlanta layover, and I made the best of it. There’s always a plan B. Enter, Pasta da Pulcinella.
This adorable little restaurant is tucked away in a Midtown bungalow and has been serving satisfying, delicious and clever Italian cuisine since 1994. I’m lucky enough to have been enjoying it since their inception!
After a short Uber ride from my hotel I found myself comfy and cozy at a corner table with an Amalfi cocktail in hand, a crisp and refreshing blend of limoncello, cucumber vodka, lemon and mint.
I chose a Caesar salad for my appetizer, which came with a very light dressing and large portion of shaved Reggiano on top.
Next up was my main course, the pasta special of the the evening, Rigatoni Pasta with smoked salmon, fresh spinach and diced tomatoes, tossed in a spicy vodka tomato cream sauce. The smokiness of the salmon mixed perfectly with the spiciness of the sauce for a really delicious flavor. The pasta was cooked perfectly. I accompanied my dinner with a Super Tuscan Sangiovese Syrah blend, Rocca delle Macie Sasyr. Pasta da Pulcinella’s wine list is extensive.
Last but not least, my server, Kayo, was polite, gracious and extremely efficient. The entire staff made me feel very welcomed. I had a great experience at Pasta da Pulcinella and can highly recommend it. They are located in Midtown Atlanta at 1123 Peachtree Walk NE.
