Guests can expect an expanded menu of antipasto, pasta, and pizza, alongside a forthcoming beverage program of craft cocktails, beer, and small production wines.

Lunch will follow in early-2019.

Helming the kitchen will be Executive Chef Sean Dwyer.

The menu will showcase seasonal, made-from-scratch pizza featuring cured meats from local charcuterie The Spotted Trotter, coupled with housemade mozzarella, dough, and sauces.

Rotating seasonal insalatas, pasta and dolces for dessert, as well as a vegan pizza, topped with housemade cashew cheese.

“Housed across from Kimball House and just a few blocks from Decatur’s vibrant downtown, the forthcoming restaurant is inspired by the eclectic character of the surrounding community and neighborhood,” according to the press release.

The 2,500-square-foot space features “intimate seating areas, expansive windows, copper light fixtures and a bar designed to showcase the restaurant’s drink program.”

Ammazza’s two Acunto pizza ovens are imported from Italy and custom-plated with square brass tiles.

Antique brick and red steel-beamed columns add industrial touches to the otherwise contemporary space, which is grounded in a blue stained concrete floor and deep black color palette.

Also unique to the Decatur space are viewing windows into the dough and pasta room, where the Ammazza team will showcase pasta-making and the process behind their dough made from Caputo 00 flour.

Flanking the building, a large, hand-painted Ammazza mural leads to an outdoor patio behind the restaurant with umbrella seating and rows of tables.

The pizzeria is from Owner Hugh Connerty.

Daniel Bridges will serve as general manager alongside Operations Director Nick Reeves.

Ammazza’s Decatur restaurant follows its original location in Atlanta’s Edgewood neighborhood, which is slated to reopen this winter following a closure for renovations.
