Vote for Your Favorite Place for Italian Food

Patch is looking for the best Italian restaurant in town. Vote for your favorite below.

A good Italian restaurant can sweep us away to the fields of Tuscany or the streets of Rome without ever leaving town.

Age-old recipes, passed down from generation to generation, still inspire local chefs today. So whether its for the stromboli or the lasagna, the meatballs or the ravioli, these places keep us coming back for more.

And because each place has laid claim to its own unique flavors, we each have our favorites. So where's yours? Vote below.

Beginning July 23 through Aug. 17 cast your vote for your favorite below.

Whichever business gets the most votes will be named the Readers' Choice winner on Aug. 24.

Editor's note: Our polls will be registration-required for this contest!

Quanto Basta Italian Bistro at Windermere Parkway and Hwy 20 is my favorite place for fine Italian cuisine. I love it!!! Plus, they support SFHS Cheerleading!!!!

Quanto Basta is by far the best Italian Restaurant in Cumming, Forsyth, North Metro, and maybe Atlanta

Quanto!!!!!!

As far as I'm concerned, there is only one real Italian restaurant in Cumming, Ga. Quanto Basta is that place!
Joe July 24, 2012 at 11:59 PM
Quanto Basta if you people said Giorgio's you have never tasted italian; Giorgio's tastes like a microwavable food. Horrible Quanto is the only place for real Italian

Listen up Cumming!...all of the other Italian restaurants voted by others could never measure up to the incredible quality, atmosphere and service of Quanto Basta's restaurant and bar! Yes check out their awesome bar too! Try something new in your own backyard. You will never go back to those other mediocre Italian restaurants. This is the closest you will come to real Italian food, fresh and light dishes....recommended by a true Italian family!

Too bad "Casa Nuova" is just outside the Cumming area (by 1 mile). They are by far the best and most authenic Italian restaurant in this area.
Liz Kennedy (Editor) July 25, 2012 at 04:08 PM
Hi Tamstaff, You can vote for Casa Nuova or one of the other five Italian restaurants listed on Alpharetta-Milton Patch - http://alpharetta.patch.com/articles/vote-for-your-favorite-italian-restaurant-5cccf141

Quanto Basta is hands down the best place for Italian food in Cumming! Food is beyond excellent and the service is awesome. OTHER Italian places can't even come close to how good the food is at Quanto! Go and try for yourself. You won't be disappointed.

Provino's!!! Always great and perfect for your free birthday dinner!!
Alexis August 08, 2012 at 09:20 PM
Venti is by far the best!!
K. Brainard August 11, 2012 at 03:19 PM
We don't have to go to Buckhead anymore for 4 star food and service. Quanto Basta has all the fine dining elements, excellent food, wine and atmosphere right in our own neighborhood. It's awesome!

Quanto Basta ~ ~~NUMERO UNO~~ THE BEST
Brianna Frawley August 17, 2012 at 05:17 PM
Visited some family and stopped at Quanto Basta and had the Fettuccine Alfredo, best I ever had! New York is very lucky this restaurant is in Georgia.
J Mirable August 17, 2012 at 09:33 PM
Love food and the atmosphere, the remodel is fantastic and the menu is the best.
Joe Smith August 17, 2012 at 09:36 PM
Been all over the US and haven't found better Italian food than Quanto Basta. I will be back for sure.
Asheley Marshall August 17, 2012 at 09:43 PM

Marylu Esposito August 17, 2012 at 10:21 PM
Quanto Basta is awesome! The atmosphere, menu, service and did I mention the great bar!!!!!!

Liz (editor) Forsyth County receives property and sales taxes from the Casa Nouva restaurant because IT RESIDES in FORSYTH COUNTY! Many Forsyth Citizens have a Alpharetta address as based on USPS "service boundries" - - - not real world - - - - - where do you work or live? Forsyth residents and all the Casa Nouva folks have been hurt and The Patch needs to correct this major error. Tony DeMaria P.S their food equals the best in Atlanta!!
