Victory Hospitality’s first eatery is slated for Sandy Springs.

Leonardo Moura, the general manager at Veni Vidi Vici leading up to the Midtown restaurant’s closure, is parting ways with the eatery’s parent company Buckhead Life Restaurant Group to launch Il Giallo under the newly-founded Victory Hospitality Group.

Jamie Adams, former executive chef at Veni, will join Moura to open Il Giallo in Sandy Springs, at 5920 Roswell Road, under their own restaurant group this August, Atlanta Magazine first reported.

The restaurant will serve-up “authentic coastal Italian cuisine.”

Midtown’s Veni Vidi Vici, owned and operated by Buckhead Life, shuttered late last month after more than 20 years in business.
