Family-owned Buckhead staple expands after 32 years
A family owned and operated Italian restaurant, Marcello’s Pizzeria & Trattoria has been serving brick oven pizzas and pastas in Buckhead for 32 years. Next month, owners and brothers Julian and Marcello Najm will open a second location—this one in the former La Tagliatella space at Emory Point.

Last October, my best eating buddy passed away unexpectedly. I could count on Leon to stomach four barbecue joints during an afternoon research blitz, don a jacket and tie for dinner at Quinones at Bacchanalia, and debate the fine points of artisan gins over late-night cocktails. A native Atlantan, Leon gamely explored the fringes of his hometown, accepting impromptu invites to try Oaxacan moles in Jonesboro or Korean monkfish stew in Duluth.
