Since opening in 1994, the northern Italian cuisine restaurant moved from its original storefront on Peachtree Street to a transformed bungalow in Midtown. No two visits to the Italian restaurant are said to be the same as its constantly rotating appetizers, risottos, gnocchi, fish, desserts, and more.

Its signature dish, the Tortelli di Mele, is made with a Granny Smith Apple and housemade sausage ravioli served with browned butter and sage.

JLL Capital Markets Managing Director Mark Lindenbaum helped broker the deal for Pasta da Pulcinella’s new building and said the restaurant will be moving into a former house.

While he wasn’t sure when the restaurant would reopen, due to renovation and other work that was needed, but said the deal worked out well for both sides.

“They’ve been in Midtown a long time and were looking to relocate and wanted to buy something,” he said. “This building was available and the owner wanted a user rather than a developer to buy.”

The new location is a few blocks away from the old spot. At 1100 West Peach Street, the 5,500 square-foot building will sit between SkyHouse Midtown and Northside Medical.

JLL first listed the property for sale in 2019. BCY Architects presented plans for the property to the Midtown Alliance Design Review Committee (DRC) in late 2020 to convert a two-story house (recently used as offices), at 1100 West Peachtree Street, into a restaurant.

At the time no potential restaurant tenants or a timeline for the project were presented.

Lindenbaum remained unsure what the timeline for Pasta da Pulcinella to open was but expected it to reopen sometime this year.

Owner Roberto Boratto did not respond for comment in time for publication.
