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
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!
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.
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!
My family and I were in Atlanta on an overnight stay. The Mrs. had stated earlier while on the road that she had a taste for some Italian food. After arriving in town and checking into the hotel we were famished. Once we settled in, we immediately started searching for somewhere to eat. While my was diligently combing the yellowpages, I simply looked in the hotel guest services book and saw "Bambinelli's." I suggested that it would be perfect because it was very close to the hotel and it was "Italian Food." Well, we tried it and both of us agreed that it was by far some of the best Italian food we've had and the service was excellent! Even my finicky 2 year old daughter described the food as "terribly delicious," and ate a little more than usual.
If you live in Sandy Springs and haven't tried the Hearth, then you are truly missing out of one of the city's hidden gems. This place serves fantastic brick oven fired pizzas (not the usual globs of cheese and thick dough), good drinks, some sandwichs, and good appetizers. The pizzas are a notch above anything that we have had in Atlanta and I have lived here for 15 years. The service is always pleasant and prompt here. This place is great for a meal out with the kids as well as meeting up with the gang. The two crowds seem to blend just fine at this establishment. They also have a full bar and a great patio area. What are you waiting for? Just don't tell too many of your friends, we still want a table too!
This is the best pizza I've ever had. It's light and fresh. All the ingredients are really fresh and great quality, and the combinations are awesome. The carmelized onion is so good. I didn't think it would be that great, but I tried a slice of my friend's, and I couldn't believe how good it was. The onions were sweet and the cheese had a nice sharpness to it. I had the house special Nana's pizza, and it was hands down the best cheese pizza I've ever had. The fresh cheese and herbs were incredible. We finished the evening with an order of Italian donuts. They came out piping hot and fluffy with a house made raspberry sauce, simple and delicious. I'll definitely be back.
For those who remember this great restaurant which was in Emory village for years its loss was a blow. I never understood how a place that was always hopping and had such a distinctive and great tasting pizza could fold. There was something funny going on but anyway they are back. The old square pizza with the wonderful sauce and the fabulous Italian sausage has reincarnated itself in the new location. They don't have the bar and the sit down restaurant like before but the pizza is every bit as good as I remember it. It was a great Christmas present finding out they were there and we had two pizzas Christmas eve to celebrate.
