I ORDERED A PIZZA FROM THERE FOR THE FIST TIME AND IT WILL BE THE LAST. I HAVE BEEN ORDERING PIZZA'S FOR MANY YEARS AND HAVE NEVER HAD ANYONE ASK FOR THE THREE DIGITS ON THE BACK OF MY CARD. I ASKED HER WHY AND SHE SAID WE CAN'T PROCESS THE ORDER WITHOUT THAT INFORMATION. THAT WAS NO ANSWER. I TOLD HER THAT MY QUESTION WAS THE SAME. SHE SAID SHE HAD ANSWERED IT. NO SHE HAD NOT. I CALLED A PJ IN ATLANTA AND SPOKE TO A VERY NICE POLITE GENTLEMAN THAT APOLOGIZED FOR HER BEHAVIOR AND WENT ON TO EXPLAIN THAT THEY HAVE A NEW SYSTEM NOW AND IT REQUIRES THEM TO ENTER THAT INFORMATION. I DON'T THINK SHE KNEW THE ANSWER. I CALLED BACK AND ASKED WHO THE MANAGER WAS AND WOULDN'T YOU THIS THING WAS THE MANAGER. SHE'S SO FULL OF HERSELF. I THINK THE POSITION OF MANAGER HAS GIVEN HER THE BIG HEAD. IT'S JUST TOO BAD THAT HEAD DOESN'T HAVE THE SENSE GOD GAVE A HEAD OF LETTUCE. THE WITCH IS UNINFORMED AND RUDE. NOW ON A MORE POSITIVE NOTE, THE PIZZA YOUNG MAN THAT DELIVERED IT WAS POLITE, ARTICULATE, CLEAN AND NEAT, VERY PROFESSIONAL AND ABOUT HIS BUSINESS. THE PIZZA WAS THE BOMB. HOT AND PERFECT, THE COKE WAS SO COLD I DIDN'T NEED TO PUT IT ON ICE. 100% PERFECT DELIVERY SERVICE THAT EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS. 100% PERFECT PIZZA THAT EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS AND FOR THESE 2 REASONS, I'M A PAPA JOHN'S PIZZA. MANAGEMENT IS DUMBER THAN A BOX OF SAND
This restaurant is perfect for a first date. The wine list is extensive and the staff is really interested in helping you find something you like without trying to up charge. That being said, they still have pretty pricey wine. Every single bottle on their menu you can get by the glass, even the $500 dollar bottles. They have an air filtration system that keeps the wines fresh without letting the oxygen touch them. This information was all given to me by a very friendly and helpful waiter. On to the atmosphere. This restaurant is very urban chic. It has exposed ceilings but the booths are actually plush couches that feels like you are lounging on them. The lighting is perfect. Dark enough to be intimate but light enough to see what you're eating. On to the food. Our food was delicious. I tried the Orecchiette pasta. Now it takes something special for me to like a dish if it contains onions. This one did. And it was so worth me picking through them. I even took what I couldn't eat home. My boyfriend got the short rib ravioli which was awesome, and we decided we'd agree to disagree on who's was better. The single complaint I had was that the bread came out cold and not fresh baked. The olive oil to dip it in was a nice touch though.
We are in town for my sons baseball tournament. We were hungry for pizza and stopped here because of the high reviews on the yellow page app. We were not disappointed. The food and service were great. The garlic knots were hot, soft & chewy. They were excellent by themselves or with the red sauce. The spinach artichoke dip was full of flavor. It comes with little pizza dough squares dusted with Italian seasoning that really compliments the dip. Their Greek salad had a very flavorful dressing and was full of goodies. We had the 2 ton Tonys pizza with the hand tossed dough. The topings were delishious and plentiful. The dough was the perfect thickness and had a great flavor too. We are use to pizza places the have good toppings or good cheese or good dough but never all three. These guys nailed all three. We had a gluten free Bianca pizza too and it was just as yummy as the rest of the food. The overall experience was 5 star worthy. The food was great and even though the place was full our waitress (Ashe) kept stopping by to check on us. Next time were in town we will be stoping by.
Antico Pizza has won all kinds of accolades in the short time it's been open in Atlanta. CNN has reported on it, real Italian people have said it's "Top In Class". And while it's good, I simply do not understand the hype. Antico's website (super annoying, please get rid of the typical Dean Martin music) is about as self-aggrandizing at it gets. Italian dude inspired by pizza is sharing his gift for making pizza with us! Aren't we so grateful! Like Holeman & Finch, I don't like places that are full of themselves. This is one of those places. Yes, your authentic Italian ovens are nice. Yes, the flour you use is top quality. Yes, I know you think it's cool to say "we are open until we run out of dough." But I don't think that's cool. I think it's pretentious: you're a pizza place, not a restaurant flying in fish from New England. Read more of my review at: http://3nosh.com/antico-pizza-atlanta-westside/
The interior is nice and clean with a lovely oven as its focal point. The employees were super nice, friendly and helpful. At pizza crosta you can customize everything you order from the wings, pizza and salads. I ordered a whole wheat crust pizza and it turned out to be better then expected. Most times whole wheat crusts tend to be a bit more bland and lack in comparison to the regular crust. Surprisingly the whole wheat crust was even better then the regular crust. I also ordered a salad which is customized to your preferences. The prices are very reasonable being that it is less than $10 for a personalized pizza. The have a very nice coke machine with over 10 flavors to choose from and a cool dipping sauce station. All in all, this is a great place to visit if you want to make a pizza but are to lazy too. From the start to the finish everything you ordered can be customized to you! Definitely will be back!
This is the ultimate date night restaurant! A little pricey for me but well worth the money spent, maybe save it for a special occasion or when you're trying to impress a special someone. The atmosphere is fresh and airy like most places in Ponce City Market. The hostess and waiting staff are super trendy and friendly (Ask for suggestions! They won't disappoint!) We started with wine and the Parmesan oysters. I'd honestly eat the oysters as a main meal if they served a larger portion, they were incredible! For dinner I had a tough time choosing between the risotto and the gnocchi, luckily my date felt the same way so we got both and shared. The gnocchi was definitely the better of the two. It had a little bit of spice and the flavor was indescribable. The risotto was still delicious but didn't' have the same colorful flavor. Will definitely be back after my next paycheck.
This location is the original and still the best. They've got great salads and mix and match pastas - pick your pasta and sauce and you're off. My favorite is gemelli with pecorino and lemon. In the beginning they made their pasta fresh and it was to die for. As they've grown I believe they've gotten away from this but I can barely notice (though others might disagree). The atmostphere is great. All dinners come with bread and olive oil. They only have one beer on draft but its fittingly Italian and they've got a few other bottled selections to choose from. The house wine hits the spot too. Lastly, the prices, while not cheap are reasonable for the quality you get. I make an effort to get to a FIGO at least once a month and their expansion to new locations make this much easier. I do lament the closing of their VaHi location. That was the closest and my favorite.
I would give Amalfi pizza a 12/10 if I could! Great new spot in Atlanta. We visited for a friend's birthday last week. The space is very open and simply decorated. It felt very European to me. The lighting was dim but really fit the mood of the restaurant. We started the night with a bottle of Prosecco, the meatballs and bruschetta. We then each ordered our own personal pizza! EVERYONE'S food was amazing- no one felt like they ordered the wrong thing which rarely happens in our group. (We all also finished our pizzas in one sitting- which never happens either. We couldn't stand to leave a bite behind!) The service was phenomenal, the food was excellent, and the atmosphere was trendy. Would recommend to anyone looking for a more upscale pizza experience. This is not a casual place to stop in for a slice- this is an authentic Italian experience.
We went here for our anniversary and it was a really great choice! The owner and the waitstaff really make you feel special- everyone greets you and with such personality you can't be but happy! A more intimate table, extra roses and photos came when they found out it was our special day. It feels like you're in a hole in the wall in NY's Little Italy, but on steroids. It's got a really fun vibe that got crazier after the 8pm hour, so go to the back if you want serenity! The lobster bisque was out of this world! The arugula salad was just the right lighter touch while the fish was good although I can't say excellent. I'd skip the tirimisu next time- a bit disappointing, but the espresso was a nice finishing touch. Overall a really great, fun experience. We'll be looking for another occasion to come back!
Antico’s has won numerous awards including Festa Della Pizza’s Top in Class Pizzeria and I can definitely see why! The pizza here is so delicious and is made the way authentic Italian pizza is made! My friends and I went on a week night and ordered the Lasagna Pizza ($20) which had meatballs, ricotta, and romano as toppings (shown below). The meatballs were really flavorful and their texture went perfectly with the texture of the ricotta cheese. The crust is purposely burnt a little but is so soft and doughy. I would easily order this pizza again. My favorite though is the sofia pizza!! My friend Harry also recommended the San Gennaro and Bianca pizza! I recommend coming here on a monday-thursday because otherwise it gets too crowded and there'll be no where to sit. It's also BYOB and community tables!
