You’d think if you wanted to get some top-quality Napoletana-style wood fired pizza you’d need to take a long trip to Italy, but folks in Atlanta are fortunate to now have Ammazza Edgewood as an option.
Ammazza Egewood has created the recipe for success with delicious food and a relaxed, yet classy atmosphere.
It’s the kind of place you can go on a fun first date or a night out with the family.
On a recent evening when the restaurant owners invited friends and family for a test-run before opening its doors to the public, we tried the ‘Polpete’, described on the menu as homemade meatballs, tomato sauce, romano, mozzarella and ricotta. Yum.
We had to pace ourselves because we knew we had the pizza still to come.
We had ordered ‘Cinque Formaggi’ (pictured just above, not the one being prepped) a white pizza with caprino, fior di latte, ricotta, romano and house mozzarella seasoned with extra virgin olive oil, fresh basil, cracked peppercorn and sea salt. It was beyond delicious.
You’d think there wasn’t any room left in my belly after that, but you have to understand that I have a whole separate compartment for dessert.
I couldn’t turn down a cannoli. No way. And you shouldn’t either.
Actually, I had room for a sample of the Torta Caprese, too, ‘flourless chocolate almond cake from the Isle of Capri topped with homemade chocolate ganache’. Heavenly.
And if the food doesn’t have you convinced to give it a try, the story behind the restaurant should.
It’s the brainchild of a couple of brothers, the Connerty boys, and you can tell they’ve put their hearts and souls into it. The end result is exactly what they intended: amazing, or, Ammazza, as the Italians would say it.
