Amalfi Pizza Offers Pay What You Can Meals to Irma Evacuees

Amalfi Pizza welcomes Hurricane Irma evacuees and invites individuals and families to come and have a meal for whatever they feel they can pay on the food portion of their bill (excluding alcoholic beverages). This offer is valid to anyone in town from mandatory evacuation zones. All they need to do is ask for a manager and show a valid ID from one of the areas affected. 

“Our hearts go out to those displaced by Hurricane Irma and understand the struggles they are experiencing,” said Amalfi Pizza founding partner Stephen de Haan. “This is our way of welcoming evacuees to the Amalfi family with a warm meal that could make them feel at home and welcome in our city.” 

Open seven days a week for lunch and dinner in downtown Atlanta, Amalfi Pizza is a traditional Neapolitan pizzeria centered around two 6000 pound wood-burning brick ovens imported from Italy that were lifted into the second floor space by cranes. The 170 seat dining room has large semicircular booths, custom wrought iron chandeliers along with Juliet balconies overlooking an Italian-inspired entryway. Co-founder and operating partner Greg Grant developed an authentic Italian menu that will include Neapolitan-style pizzas as well as appetizers, salads, pasta dishes and original desserts. Originating in and the true pizza of Naples in the 1600s, Vera Pizza Napoletana is 12 inches or less in size, made from simple fresh quality ingredients from the Campania region of Italy and cooked at temperatures in excess of 900 degrees in approximately 60 seconds. In addition to traveling to Naples and throughout the entire region to find the best ingredients, both Stephen de Haan and Greg Grant staged with the Italian Pizzaiolo Maestros at Pizzeria Mattozzi, established in 1830, and Pizzeria Da Attilo. This apprenticeship, along with studying in the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana, have allowed their passion for food to develop into the skills necessary to bring this historic, simple, and beautifully executed street food to Atlanta.
