WMTH Eats: Atlanta's St. Cecilia

Marian ready to dine
I recently had the opportunity to try St. Cecilia in Atlanta, and I was blown away.  It's been on my list for some time, but since I usually travel to Atlanta with a three-year-old in tow, dining out is a little tricky.  This visit, I decided to go ahead make an early reservation and hope for the best.  Thankfully, it all worked out.  The three year old played happily on the iPad, and my mom and I enjoyed delicious food in a delightful atmosphere.  There were so many intriguing options on the menu that we decided to split several things so that we could try more.  We started with a Yellowfin tuna before moving on to try three of the pastas:    the Caramelle, the Goat Cheese Ravioli, and my favorite, the Agnolotti.  For a side, I could not pass up the Brussels sprouts, which were tasty, but in my opinion could have been a little crispier.  Finally for dessert, my mom and I split the Tiramisu while Marian opted for a vanilla gelato with caramel.  All in all, the meal was incredible, and I cannot wait to go back!
