It looks like O4W Pizza and Nina & Rafi owner Anthony Spina might be launching a food truck slinging made-to-order, Detroit-style pizzas.

Spina posted photos to the Instagram page of his forthcoming Virginia-Highland pizzeria, Pizza by the Slice, showing the progress of the paint job on the truck. A sign painted along the side reads, “Please keep safe distance”, next to what appears to be the ordering window. The latest Instagram post asks people to “send [neighborhood] locations” in the comments for the pizza truck to visit around Atlanta, and to follow the hashtag #thepizzatrucko4w for updates.

Spina seems to be moving forward with the early summer opening of Pizza by the Slice in part of the former Goin’ Coastal space on Virginia Avenue. That pizzeria focuses on Sicilian-style pizza, served by the slice or whole pie, and Jersey-style sub sandwiches.

Eater Atlanta reached out to Spina for confirmation and more details on the pizza truck, including when it starts rolling around Atlanta.

Since closing down his wildly popular Old Fourth Ward (O4W) pizza shop inside Irwin Street Market and relocating it to Duluth four years ago, Spina returned to O4W in 2018 to open Detroit-style pizzeria and Italian restaurant Nina & Rafi with Billy Streck (Hampton + Hudson). As with his Jersey-style “grandma pie” at O4W Pizza, Spina’s Detroit-style pizzas have become equally as popular.

Due to COVID-19, Nina & Rafi along the Eastside Beltline and O4W Pizza are only open for takeout and delivery.

Stay home if sick. Check the Georgia Department of Public Health website for guidance and twice-daily updates on the latest number of reported COVID-19 cases.
