Antico Pizza Napoletana offers true authentic Italian pizza without the extra cost of flying out to Italy to get one. It sits cozily at corner of Hemphill Avenue and Ethel Street close to Georgia Tech where finding a parking spot can become quite difficult around this area. What makes Antico Pizza different from the other pizzeria is that all of their ingredients come from Italy itself. Another added bonus about this place is that you can bring your own alcohol. This is a big plus for my fellow alcoholics.
Ever since I started going to Georgia State University, I’ve been going to Rosa’s Pizza to get my fixing on their New York style pizzas. Since it’s located at the heart of campus, Rosa’s Pizza has been the ideal spot for many students and white collar corporate guys. It becomes rather difficult to grab food quickly especially around rush hour when the lines wraps around the walls. In order to cope with the daily surge of patrons, the pies are pre-made in order to get people in and out quickly. The ordering process goes by fast so you better know what you want when it comes to you.
Ciao Bocca is a little hidden gem in Sweet Auburn Market. This location is home to many vendors that cater to local businesses, Grady Hospital, Georgia States student, and residents that live around the area. This restaurant is owned by Deborah Kudelka and it’s only open on weekdays from Tuesday to Saturday from 11:30 to 3 in the afternoon. Not only that but the food are made in limited quantities each day so if you want to get your favorite item from the menu, you better be there early!
My friend and I decided to stop by at Ciao Bocca after getting out of class at Georgia State with 45 minutes to grab lunch. Since my friend had been raving about their meatball sandwiches for the past 4 semesters, I had to have one to see what’s the fuss was all about.
