— Antico Pizza, the Neapolitan pizzeria from controversial restaurateur Giovanni Di Palma, is now serving pies seven days a week. Antico has added Sunday hours, from noon until the kitchen is out of dough, at its Westside original and second location at Alpharetta's Avalon development.
"After seven years of resistance, I finally had to listen to the will of our local fans and disappointed visitors of our great city," Di Palma said in a statement provided to Eater Atlanta. "Every Sunday, we receive over 200 missed phone calls and hundreds of cars that arrive only to be let down because we were closed. ... Well, we listened and are now open on Sundays. We will soon announce a new pizza that will be available on Sundays only."
— St. Cecilia is getting in on the Sunday business as well. Mega-restaurateur Ford Fry's Buckhead Italian spot will add brunch service this week, reports Atlanta Magazine. Antipasti and dessert will be included with every meal.
"A lot of our cooks go out for dim sum on Sundays for brunch, so that was an inspiration — providing a lot of antipasti options for guests to choose from [while] at the same time putting our own Italian spin on some brunch classics," executive chef Craig Richards told Atlanta.
