After nearly two years the updated and expanded pizzeria and restaurant returns next week.
Ammazza pizzeria and restaurant is set to reopen its original Old Fourth Ward location on Tuesday, March 19.
Amazza closed down nearly two years ago for repairs following a car accident that caused extensive damage to the restaurant.
Late last year, Ammazza also opened a location in downtown Decatur.
Owner Hugh Connerty and the rest of the Ammazza team have been working to renovate and refresh the space, including expanding into the building next door, upping the restaurant’s square footage from 5,000 to 8,000, and more than doubling the kitchen size.
The kitchen houses four custom copper-tiled Acunto pizza ovens and a new dough room.
A patio will open later in the spring and a room in the back of Ammazza will eventually be turned into a small space for private and semi-private events.
Overseeing the kitchen will be Executive Chef Sean Dwyer who has been with the Ammazza team for years.
The updated 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, pastas and dolces will round out the food selection.
Ammazza has expanded its kid’s menu, which includes a Glitter Pizza with mozzarella, house-made tomato sauce, and edible glitter.
The restaurant will also offer a vegan pizza topped with housemade cashew cheese.
Ammazza Edgewood will have a newly designed bar set against rustic brick walls.
On the beverage menu are beer, small production wines, and cocktails.
Ammazza Edgewood will also welcome back Sam Adams as General Manager and Operations Director Nick Reeves.
