Spent Saturday evening at what might just be the best pizza spot in Atlanta // Varuni Napoli. After living in Italy for a while, I am quite critical of any + all pizza. Antico rocks, but Varuni Napoli is crazy good. The authenticity at this place makes you feel like you're in Italy. Everything is done the traditional Italian way. No reservations. No take-out. Cheap/good wine + beer.
One of the best parts aside from the great Neapolitan pizza is the classic black and white Italian movie projected on the wall. When you're not watching the movie you can turn your attention to the open kitchen. Luca, owner + chef, is almost always on deck. Definitely try the appetizers before your pizza. The bufala mozzarella is dreamy. The main ingredients are all imported directly from Italy + you can taste it.
Varuni Napoli is a must. The crowd wasn't crazy and there was room for big groups.
Take your time (as the Italians do) + enjoy this great little spot.
