Where to Get Your Pizza Fix in Atlanta
It’s undeniable — Atlanta is in love with pizza. Ask any Atlantan their opinion, and they’re bound to have a favorite pizza pie and feel very strongly about it. Choose for yourself which ‘za reigns supreme.
Antico is king in Atlanta, winning multiple awards for most beloved pizza in the city. Antico is loud and crowded, with communal, cafeteria-style seating. The atmosphere shouldn’t deter you — the huge pies and BYOB policy make Antico a front-runner in the Atlanta pizza game.
On the flipside, Ammazza is where you come if you want a little atmosphere with your pizza. Interestingly enough, Ammazza also has communal seating just like Antico, but with a way more laid-back, sultry vibe. The pizzas and wine list are spot on, with lots of options for vegans and vegetarians if you’re so inclined.
Ribalta is uber-authentic, with both the owner and chef hailing from Naples (and we’re not talking about the city in Florida). The extensive menu features handmade pastas and desserts in addition to a doughy, slightly sweet crust on the Neapolitan style pizzas.
Varuni Napoli, a Midtown pizza eatery, features iconic bright blue pizza ovens perfect for a few Insta-worthy shots. Sit at the bar to watch the scenery from the open kitchen, or enjoy your ‘za with a drink on the cozy outdoor patio.
This local Atlanta chain deserves some serious mention — with seven locations and late night hours, Fellini’s is perfect for a post-bar night slice no matter where you are in the city. The pizza is consistently tasty and though it has a simple menu, there are tons of options for customization.
There’s a lot to love at Fritti, with a classy atmosphere, covered patio, and authentic Italian menu. Fan favorites include the Bianca (a decadent white pizza with six cheeses) and the simple but tasty Sorrentino (smoked mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, and basil).
This funky spot in Little Five Points is covered in super hero memorabilia — so you can let out your inner kid while nomming on some of the specialty pizzas. A Savage staple is the Mexican Deluxe with ground beef, refried beans, and salsa fresca for a little olé on your pie.
