Fifteen facts that may surprise you about Don Antonio by Starita
The newest pizza shop in Buckhead, Don Antonio by Starita is full of surprises. In bringing the New York outpost to 102 West Paces Ferry Road, (the space formerly home to STG Trattoria), executive chef Roberto Caporuscio created a welcoming yet affordable spot with an upscale feel. Though the focus is definitely pizza, Don Antonio by Starita offers appetizers, salads, and desserts, as well as a full bar complete with Italian cocktails.
Luxury dining is a given in Buckhead, where you can't throw a Bentley hood ornament without hitting an expense-account steakhouse, a mall or hotel that houses white-tablecloth heavyweights, or one of Pano Karatassos's 1990s holdouts still serving Southwestern Caesars or seafood Newburg (looking at you, Nava and Atlanta Fish Market).
But what about quality midscale options—the casual haunts that won't decimate your credit line, where you can linger
Brian Lewis further discusses STG Trattoria

Brian Lewis to open STG Trattoria in March, hires Joshua Hopkins
Brian Lewis gave the emerging Westside dining scene its definitive neighborhood restaurant when he opened Bocado in 2009. Now Lewis plans to bring that casual, creative spirit to Buckhead—but with a distinct Italian accent—when he opens STG Trattoria in March at 102 West Paces Ferry, next to the St. Regis hotel. The name STG (not to be confused with newly opened Midtown chophouse STK) stands for Lewis’s three sons—Sebastian, Tristan, and Gabriel.
Watching Atlanta's Westside develop has been the urban equivalent of witnessing a new mountain range emerge in fast-forward: So much fresh geography, so many uncharted nooks. What is currently the area’s most fertile corridor of businesses—between the junction of Northside Drive and Marietta Street and the intersection of Howell Mill Road and Fourteenth Street—felt forsaken just five years ago. Now you can stop for Thai curry at Spoon, pick up cupcakes in a dozen flavors at Caryn’s Cakes, grab panini at Toscano & Sons Italian Market, and disappear into the clump of businesses dubbed the "Beer-muda Triangle": 5 Seasons Brewing Company, retailer Hop City, and Octane, which serves Belgian ales and microbrews alongside coffee. This stretch also claims its share of destination restaurants—Bacchanalia, Abattoir, and the just-opened Miller Union among them.
