Family-Style Neapolitan Pizza
When you fly in the ingredients straight from Italy, it's hard to go wrong: San Marzano tomatoes, fresh Mozzarella di Bufala, and extra virgin olive oil. Even the pizza ovens are shipped in from Naples. The restaurant is open until they run out of dough, and there's no hostess, so it's not uncommon to see guests fighting for, or sharing, a table. Have one person order while the others scout out a spot. Bring your own wine and chow down on a specialty pie. Just don't forget to leave room for cannoli. They've even opened a second location at Alpharetta's Avalon development.

The Best, Most Authentic Pizza Experience in the South!
We just returned from a great trip to Rome (having stayed at the Excelsior Hotel, a wonderful Westin hotel in Rome!) and were missing the great Italian food we had on our trip. So we went to this tiny, authentic pizzeria that is off-the-beaten path called Antico Pizza Napoletana. It is the best pizza in the South! And a great, very italian experience.
