“The decision to welcome Aliño Pizzeria to our restaurant mix was easy as pie,” said Teresa Holloway, director of marketing and business development at Mall of Georgia. “Our goal is to continually provide the best combination of retail and dining options for our shoppers, and this popular pizzeria furthers that commitment with high quality menu items, exceptional service and a family-friendly atmosphere.”
Opening in the Village near Chico’s, Aliño Pizzeria will offer a simple, fresh menu with nine signature pizzas and an assortment of salads, Italian wines, international bottled beers and desserts. Based on true Neapolitan pizza techniques and ingredients, the restaurant features 800-degree ovens, house-made sauces and imported flour, cheese, Citterio pepperoni, sopressata, extra virgin olive oil, truffle oil, canned tomatoes and sea salt straight from Italy for an authentic slice of Naples pie. Inspired by a typical Italian pizza bakery, the restaurant’s décor will include an open kitchen, exposed brick and long community tables.
Aliño Pizzeria joins a variety of casual eateries and fine dining restaurants in the Village, including the recently announced Smokey Bones Bar & Fire Grill. Set to open this July in a 7,401 square foot space plus patio, Smokey Bones Bar & Fire Grill will offer diners food, drinks and fun. With two other locations in the greater Atlanta area, the restaurant is known for its signature Smoked Wings, Fall off the Bone Baby Back Ribs, Pulled Pork and Build Your Own Burgers with over 35 toppings.
