At no. 246, an Italian eatery in downtown Decatur, bold flavors come out of a semi-open kitchen. Wood-fired cooking fueled by the wall of drying logs on display acts as a fun accent to the dining room. This restaurant also offers a chef's table for family-style dining and a view of the food carefully prepared for diners, or a seat at the chef's counter where diners enjoy a prix fixe menu. The artisan pizza served here is far away from the classic New York pie or Chicago deep dish. Crisp, flaky crusts support a light sauce and range of toppings from clams to salami.

At Camps Kitchen & Bar, enjoy a relaxing and elegant restaurant also serving up one of America's favorite dishes — pizza. Natural wood-topped tables and an expansive patio eating space give diners the option of indoors or out while enjoying a variety of dishes from a large menu. Crispy cauliflower, wings, and steak tacos are just a couple of the starters, while plated meals offer everything from smoked ribs to classic pasta dishes. But it's the pizza that keeps diners coming back for more. From the Carnivore topped with pepperoni, sausage, and bacon to the Bee Me Up Scotty with goat cheese, arugula, and spicy honey, the combinations are imaginative and fun.

High-backed booths, intimate lighting, and black-and-white photography are decor staples at Cibo E Beve, creating a romantic and fun atmosphere. Enjoy an evening out and some great Italian food, or come for a cooking class and learn more about making the perfect tomato sauce. The menu is a fun and delicious combination of classics like the burrata or an olive tasting plate. Even the Italian-style pizza (expect a thin, crispy crust) stays true to tradition with San Marzano tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella, and basil as the base for virtually every pie.

Elegant, trendy, and upscale may not be words synonymous with pizza, but they are for Double Zero, an eclectic Italian restaurant. Vibrant turquoise accents contrast with natural stone and wood for an upbeat ambiance. While soaking up the warm welcome, take a look at the menu. The options might seem more at home on a fine dining menu at first glance, and the pizza lives up to its neighboring dishes. Toppings like olive tapenade, pecorino cheese and mortadella salumi all add a zing to a classic slice. Artichokes, prosciutto, Calabrian chile, and truffle creme fraiche are just a few of the options.

Enjoy an evening of fun at Vero Pizzeria, Word of Mouth Restaurant Group's entry into casual dining. Small bistro tables and a long bar make it a great place for small groups to share a big pizza. Neapolitan-style pie is the slice of choice at this eatery, so expect a pillowy crust with just a hint of char. Sweet peppers, smoked mozzarella, eggs, parm crema, and dozens of other toppings let diners create one-of-a-kind pizzas. For those that want a little something different, paninis serve up some of the same ingredients as a sandwich.

It started out in a basement in an effort to save nearly lost Italian dishes, but Storico Fresno Alimentari e Ristorante has morphed into one of the most popular Old Country eateries in the city. Locally sourced ingredients are used, but every menu item feels like it was transported directly from Italy. While their weekly pasta special and Ravioli Spinaci might get most of the attention, everyone should try the pizzette. This fried pizza dough is stuffed with all the perfect toppings, and although it’s not the typical pie, it’s still some of the best pizza in Atlanta. Valet parking is available and there’s an Italian grocer inside as well!

Deep in the entertainment district of Buckhead sits Antica Posta, an eatery that aims to bring authentic Tuscan dishes to the soul of Atlanta. The first location was in San Casciano, Italy, but they’ve now brought the same delicious options to the capital of the Deep South. While their bruschetta offerings are a different take on the best pizza in Atlanta, the rest of the mammoth menu ensures there’s a little something for everyone. Enjoy black truffle carpaccio, tuna filets, oven roasted sea bass and more while admiring vintage photography, gorgeous architecture and various touches of the Old Country.

Esquire Magazine once called Pricci a 'dazzlingly modern, very hip Italian restaurant,' and one trip to this eatery shows that it’s maintained the status. The open kitchen, massive bar, rustic lighting and vintage artworks go a long way in this endeavor, but providing guests with some of the best pizza in Atlanta doesn’t hurt either. There are four wood-oven pizzas to choose from – with organic crust as an option – but guests who want a little more from their contemporary Italian experience can try the Salmone Piccata, Lasagna Matta Bolognese or Vegetariano Panino.

Any restaurant that calls itself 'Atlanta's favorite Northern Italian Steakhouse' has a big reputation to live up to, and Davio's pulls this off better than its competitors. It starts with a luxurious and chic interior. The fine linen tablecloths, candlelit tables and stylish seating ensure this ambiance persists. Guests love showing up for special events such as the live music brunches or Celebrity Happy Hour. Of course, it could be the prime steaks, handmade pasta, fresh seafood or best pizzas in Atlanta that keep patrons coming back. The white cheese and prosciutto pizzas shouldn't be missed, but adventurous diners need to have the calamari or La Quercia Americano Prosciutto pizzas at least once.
