In this week's Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Jenny Turknett revisits Alpharetta upscale Italian restaurant di Paolo. It opened in 1995 and is now run by chef Darin Hiebel, and Turknett awards it two stars. She recommends the "safe bet" thin-crust pizzas, the chicken and risotto, and the housemade tagliatelle con sugo di carne and selection of gelati, but warns that some dishes can be "thick and heavy.'
Because the city's dining scene is getting exciting, Atlanta's Bill Addison will now critique a few restaurants online in addition to his once monthly print review. First up is Pallookaville, and the Avondale Estates estalbishment gets a "very good" two out of four stars for its "carny fare."
