Antico Pizza Napoletana, Saturday at 7 P.M.

Welcome to Pizza Week's edition of the photo series Eater Scenes, in which Eater photographers visit some of the country's most famous pizzerias to capture them at a certain, and very specific, point in the day. Here now, Matthew Wong at Antico Pizza Napoletana.

In the grand scheme of things, Antico is not old— the Westside pizzeria opened just five years ago in 2009. But it's hard to argue that it's not already classic. Where else in Atlanta do patrons line up out the door to place an order, only to have to jostle for a seat at a communal table once inside? The pizza must be worth it, but it's not just about the food: the music, the madness on view in the kitchen, the monstrous set of wood fired ovens— it's all part of what makes Antico so synonymous with pizza in this city. Below, scenes of the restaurant during a typically busy Saturday evening:
