Custom pizzas accompany traditional classics such as the Parma (mozzarella, grape tomatoes, arugula, prosciutto, served atop a thin crust). Ribalta serves authentic, carefully cooked pasta plates such as spaghetti and gnocchi, as well.

Inman Park is an attractive neighborhood of Atlanta, culinary-wise. Fritti, a youthful, energetic spot with a welcoming patio and an elegant interior serves wood-fired pizza, as well – its Neapolitan style is reminiscent of what many mean when they mention ‘real pizza.’ Reaching a stifling 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit, Fritti’s oven helps turn over these Neapolitan masterpieces at a satisfactory pace, but the Caputo flour and all-natural dough ensures a delectable end product. Grab a seat on the patio and work your way through a nice Italian meal at a leisurely pace.
Address & telephone number: Fritti, 309 North Highland Avenue NE, Atlanta, GA, USA, + 1 404 880 9559
