Stephen de Haan, perhaps best known for his work with Saito — Sushi, Steak and Cocktails and Red Phone Booth, is opening up a second Amalfi Pizza joint. This time, the restaurateur is looking at Buckhead as its new home, at 3242 Peachtree Rd NE. The location shares the same address as the Buckhead Hyatt Place Atlanta.
Amalfi Pizza considers itself authentic Neapolitan Italian pizza made from fresh and quality ingredients from the Campania region of Italy. Centered around two 6,000 pound brick ovens that are imported straight from Italy, the food is cooked in temperatures excess of 900 degrees. Amalfi’s current location, at 17 Andrew Young International Blvd, consists of a 170 seat dining room decorated with custom iron chandeliers and Juliet balconies.
Haan’s previous restaurants have landed with extreme success, most notably Saito — Sushi, Steak and Cocktails, which What Now Atlanta recently got confirmation that an opening is happening very soon. Both Saito and Amalfi Pizza are waiting on the finalization of permits ahead of opening in downtown and Buckhead respectively.
