Man it was a nice day yesterday, and today for that matter. After a bottle on the cafe di sol patio with Mal we decided to hit up Fritti right down the street in Inman Park for some pie. Noah was joining us. I was pumped to be eating with these folks.
Fritti is a fairly well known pizza spot in the ATL and has been for several years. I had eaten there when I lived in the neighborhood 3 or 4 years ago. I can't remember exactly what I thought of it. After all, I wasn't exactly taking into account I would be writing of it later. So I sat down with an open mind and an open stomach.
A bottle of Chianti and some calamari and our pie was on it's way. Mal and me got the Speck e Rucola...Smoked prosciutto, bufala motz, cherry tomatoes and arugula.
Noah ordered the Salame Piccante...Spicy salame and black olives.
It was kinda funny because the menu didn't say but Noah's had sauce and ours didn't. That wasn't too cool. We got a big side sauce for dippin' and it worked. Then we find out that they don't cut their pizzas. For real?? After the fact I figured out from their website that this was some Italian tradition or something. I've never seen it though. Are you supposed to just pick it up and bite into it? By the way, that doesn't sound like a bad idea. Or just go at it with your fork and knife? Or do what I did? Attempt to slice it up like a normal pie.
Look at this picture of Noah after he found out they wouldn't slice his pie...
The pizza was real good though. The cheese is that bufala stuff they have over at Antico, the smoked prosciutto was tasty, could of had more tomato and the arugula was super fresh. I really liked the dough also. Sweet and salty just how I like it. I had a slice of Noah's also and it was real good. I wouldn't have gone for the salami, but it was a good representation of what that pie could of been.
This place has a real good rap around town. I think the ingredients are fresh and the pies creative, but there's something they're not hitting. I left satisfied but thinking there could have been more.
