Four-time World Pizza Champion Giulio Adriani plans to open the doors to his first location of The Local Pizzaiolo (pronounced pizza-yolo.), on the Westside, at 1000 Marietta Street, Suite 202, January 23.
The Neapolitan-inspired pizzeria is one of four planned Atlanta-area locations.
“We believe in the art of creativity without compromising the Neapolitan heritage,” Adriani said in a press release Wednesday.
“The Local Pizzaiolo will deliver a taste of authenticity. We want you to eat like you only live once and take pleasure from every bite.”
The Westside grand opening event will be held from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The restaurant will serve complimentary pizza to those who make a two dollar donation to the Atlanta Community Food Bank and No Kid Hungry, a campaign to end child hunger in the United States.
All donations will be split evenly amongst the two organizations.
Three additional locations of The Local Pizzaiolo are planned to open in Atlanta later this year and in early 2019: Madison Yards, Sandy Springs, and Toco Hills.
