    Antico's San Gennaro pizza is tough to beat. Chunks of fennel-laced sausage mixed with mozzarella and peppers take this pie from good to great, securing a place on CL's list of 100 best dishes. Read more

    One of the most fantastic pizza experiences ever. Open space, open kitchen, BYOB, Italian music blasting, and 3 gorgeous wood-fired ovens. And the pizza, oh the pizza. Eat everything.

    "This pizza has the perfect amount of heat from the Calabrian chilies and spicy soppressata. It has a perfect crust and super fresh buffalo mozzarella as well." Chef Ford Fry Read more

    "The flour is imported from Italy, the tomatoes are vine-ripened, and the owner does not allow substitutions, which keeps the integrity of his original pies." Chef Cyrille Holota Read more

    Love the pizza, it's always done right. Service is fast. If it's busy (aka, evening) you will have to fight for some table space, but the community dining feel is really great. It can get loud though.

    The Pizza is big enough to share...it's authentic. If you don't eat pork, you may be out of luck for the meat options. I always get the Marg... Save room for Gelatto and Cannoli across the street!

    There is something about Antico's pizza that other pizza places cant mimic. Pizzas are just right enough to have you taste all the aspects of ingredients that go into the pizza. Oh, you can BYOB too🍷

    You have died and gone to pizza heaven when eating here. Three wood-fired ovens cook pizzas to perfection in minutes while opera music blares. This is the best pizza place I have ever been to anywhere

    BYOB! Bring a nice wine paring or a cold beer to enjoy with the best pizza in Atlanta. The Lasagna pizza is outstanding and the Diavolo is smokin' hot & tasty!! Get on the Gelato truck outside. Yummy!

    We'd sell our souls for the Diavola pizza, made with fresh Mozzarella di Bufala, spicy sopressata, and pepperonata and the San Gennaro which features fresh mozzarella, broccoli rabe, and salsiccia. Read more

    As an Italian in Atlanta I must say that this place is 100% authentic. Every ingredient is one you'd actually find in Italy and the fact that They have a real wood burning oven is amazing. If you love

    Best pizza in Atlanta! Authentic Italian Pizza Napoletana as originally made in Naples. Be patient - it gets packed but it's worth the wait. And don't forget to pick up a cannoli for dessert!

    It was absolutely amazing! The pizza was the best I've ever had, the atmosphere was unique and the cannoli were delicious...and I don't really like cannoli! I highly recommend the lasagna pizza.

    Go when opens at 11:30 am or noon (Saturdsays). Places closes when dough runs out. There was a line of about 40 people today (Saturday) awaiting opening. The owner, Giovanni, gave out small slices.

    Lovely convivial atmosphere but the pizza (and cannoli's!) are devour-worthy. BYOB--amazing. Get anything. Make sure to say hello and thank you to the chefs before you leave it's well deserved!

    You simply can't go wrong with their wood fired pizza, its a BYO wine also without an opening charge. Fun atmosphere, great for groups but it can get loud so don't expect a quiet evening

    Thin, tasty crust, fresh ingredients--everything you want in an incredible slice. #heart! Downside: limited seating makes people sweat you while you eat. Don't be intimidated; enjoy your food!

    Thanks Antico for making it impossible to get out of my driveway. This place doesn't care about the community that it is in. If you go here, remember you are parking in our neighborhood. Be respectful

    No doubt best pizza I've had. But a tip for vegetarians who request change of gloves at Subway - Here, same hands make a meat pizza without gloves. If you r very strict then this might turn you off :(

    Don't worry if there is a huge line and nowhere to sit. It goes fast and the pizza was delivered as our butts hit the seats. And it was delish!!! The desserts look amazing too!

    The San Gennaro is hands down my favorite. All though many may claim the Diavola as a close second ;). BYOB and don't forget to offer Giuseppe a glass of wine when you see him!

    When it comes to pizza, pile on the nutrients and eat in moderation. From the calcium in cheese to a variety of antioxidants in tomato sauce, pizza offers nutritious benefits. Read more

    Antico remains the one to beat. If you like your pizza with a little kick, don't miss the Diavola topped with spicy sopressata and peppers. Read more

    Margarita pizza, or really anything. Best pizza I've ever had. Only restaurant I say is the best in any category in the world.

    Absolutely amazing pizza. The environment in the building is one of the most unique I've seen! Bring a bottle of wine, bring some friends, and have an amazing meal/time!

    Anything and everything!! Order the pizza- takes about 5 min, and in the meantime, TRY to find someplace to sit. Freshly grated Parmesan available in the back.

    This is tremendous pizza, and having never been to Naples for real pizza, this is supposed to be tremendously authentic. Don't expect to go to lunch except Saturdays, only open after 4.

    margherita pizza is amazing. However, this place has gotten too popular. Plan to stand and eat or get there waay early, or go on a workday lunch. They need to expand.

    The pizza here is absolutely amazing. The owner came straight from Italy so he knows what he's doing in the kitchen. Takes about 2 minutes to receive your pizza!

    Giggioto calzone :As your teeth break through the slightly charred, tangy, bready crust, the rich combination of creamy ricotta and mozzarella oozes into your mouth. Read more

    This is the best Napoletana pizza. I love the crust. Get there early and be patient. It is worth the wait. If you like wine or beer - this place is BYOB.

    Yummy, pizza that tastes just like Naples... (but without the smell of Naples.) Be patient with the ordering, seating etc. This is not a place to go if you're in a hurry! Read more

    Antico has the best pizzas this side of Naples. It is BYOB so make sure to bring a good wine or some brews to pair up with the delicious goodness

    I'm not a pizza eater really, but this place is delish! Be prepared for horrible parking, long wait for food and an uncomfortable dining room. But you'll get GREAT pizza.

    As a native New Yorker I'd give this place -5 stars. No seating, no fountain drinks and inside is total chaos. They don't even do slices! Pizza is terrible! Totino 's frozen is better!!!!

    Seating in the kitchen is the best, as you can watch the activity around the ovens and check out the rising dough, palettes of flour, and industrial mixers. Don't miss the filled-to-order cannoli. Read more

    Try the San Gennaro, and you'll understand why. The pizza's rippling, chewy edges give way to a thinner center generously strewn with primo ingredients. Read more

    Finding eating can be difficult when it's busy. You have to find your own seat and there are only like 3 long tables tucked away in the kitchen.

    The pizza is delish, the employees are rude. So rude. God forbid you have a question when you're making your order. Especially Nardos (cashier) - she's got a huge chip on her shoulder!

    National recognition and a cult following have only fed their progress; plans for expansion are blazing away like the imported Acunto ovens that feed the masses. [Eater 38 Member]

    Grab it and go. The pizza is amazing but I rarely ever try eating it there: it's usually a pain in the ass to get a seat for your group.

    You can bring your own alcohol, but don't expect to have a lot of time to drink it. I just got back from Naples and this is the real deal. Yeah Atlanta!
