48. Gio’s Chicken Amalfitano


50 Best Restaurants in AtlantaTo anybody who pigeonholed Giovanni di Palma as just a pizza guy: It’s time to eat your words—and his chicken—at this casual, BYOB-friendly second act, located next door to Antico. Servers move fast, shouting out order numbers and delivering Italian comforts like herbed roast chicken and quality pasta tossed in red sauce. It’s all hard to resist at the $17-or-under price point (a single entree is enough for two and comes with a generous side salad). The lemon Sorrento chicken is the signature order, but if carbs are calling, try the fiery arrabiata or the chicken Parmesan that’s sauced in marinara, covered in fresh mozzarella, and served alongside a heaping pile of spaghetti.
