There are a lot of great restaurants in Inman Park, but BoccaLupo might be the one that makes you wonder if you can afford to live nearby. This small, super casual spot isn’t much more than a wraparound bar with a few tables, but that, along with the homemade pasta, is what makes this place so great. Everything on the menu is kind of Italian, but most of the dishes are slightly non-traditional in their own way, like the cacio e pepe that’s topped with fried pig skin, or the Southern fried chicken parm with creamy collards. Come with a few friends so you can try more of the menu, and while you’re at it, maybe convince them to move here, too.
