Dine Out – Fusco’s Via Roma – Acworth


Fusco’s Via Roma

by John Bickford

In the midst of historic Main Street Acworth sits Fusco’s via Roma, an authentic Italian restaurant that adds a decidedly romantic curve to this traditional southern railroad town. While in the dining room, the sound of the train going by does not conjure up thoughts of an Atlanta railyard, rather those of traveling through Tuscany, Sicily or the Italian Alps. A quick glance around confirms those daydreams, and I refuse to look to the front door, for fear the bubble will burst.

Using the freshest of seafood and organic beef, the chef ensnares me with the aromas of an Italian kitchen with roots that are generations deep. The dining room, dark and romantic with lighting in just the right places, uses the gutted out historic building to enhance the mood.

The wait staff quickly moves throughout the room, relatively unnoticed. My food arrives and my expectations are justified. I have ordered Spaghetti Bolognese, a favorite. My wife has ordered Lasagna. Both meals are outstanding. They are the basic, simple Italian meals, but in spite of that, Mike and his team have transported us away from our basic, ordinary life to one of romance and fine dining.

They also have a wonderful small patio for outdoor dining weather permitting.
