Nestled in right next to Antico Pizza, Gio’s Chicken Amalfitano’s lemony yellow outdoor umbrellas and checkered table cloths lure you right on into the most beautiful dining room, designed for family style and communal dining. If we could fit one of those blue tile tables in my purse it would be in our kitchen right now. The restaurant is BYOB, so if you want a sip of wine before 12:30 on a Sunday this is the place for you.
What to Eat: A Mon-Thurs lunch menu offers Italian meat paninis with heavenly cheeses like pravola, Padano and scamorza fresca. According to The AJC, “Every Sunday a plane flies into Atlanta carrying 500 to 600 cases of cheeses straight from Naples for Di Palma’s restaurants.” Swoon! But the star is the moist and tender chicken served in pools of herby broths laced with chilis, lemons or even orange, and accompanied by rustic wedges of potato and focaccia. We loved the Chicken Cacciatore and the spicy Diavola. Simple salads are served with the chicken entrees which are large enough to share with your pipsqueaks.
Pipsqueak Tip: There’s no posted kids menu at Gio’s Chicken Amalfitano, but both the side of spaghetti and the kids pasta are only $5. There are no high chairs but plenty of room to navigate your stroller inside.
