Villagio People
Decatur Made You This Little Italian Spot

The next time you’re in Decatur, you’ll want these:

Driving Directions to 1355 Clairmont Rd:

1) Head north or south.
2) Make some other necessary turns.
3) Turn onto GA-155 N/US-23 N/Clairmont Ave.

Or if those aren’t clear, just look for the sign that says Villagio Italian Kitchen, a candlelit hideout that’s there if you feel like sharing whiskey cocktails and lamb ragù with as few as zero other people, opening tomorrow night in Decatur.

Look, this place isn’t trying to reinvent the Italian-dining wheel. It’s all pretty straightforward and casual: classic paintings on the walls, blown-glass sconces hanging above wooden tables and a microscopic bar with gin mojitos.

Fast-forward to tomorrow evening. Maybe you’ve had a long day and/or just don’t feel like basting a chicken. Understandable. Go here. The hostess will escort you to the heated patio (as you requested). The server will bring you truffle fries and cremini-mushroom linguini. Al Capone (whiskey, sweet vermouth, Campari) will come by in cocktail form and introduce himself to your mouth.

And assuming you’ll still love eating ravioli and drinking Manhattans by the second week of December, good news: that’s when they’re opening for lunch.

In case you need something to look forward to in December.
