The Battery at the Braves new SunTrust Park is a hub of great restaurants and bars that can be enjoyed with or without a game going on. It's a great way for residents that live OTP to enjoy a favorite ITP Atlanta staple, Antico Pizza. 

The original location and where it started is located in the Westside of Atlanta near Georgia Tech so you know they are always busy. Pizza, byob and communal seating is a perfect mix for hungry tech students looking for some awesome pizza.

Seating is a little different for the Battery location and they have a great bar fully stocked with beer, liquor and wine. They also have a great selection of gelato for that sweet tooth as well as a full espresso bar where you can get an amazing affogato to finish off your meal.

I didn't even have to ask them to pose for me, they are just that cute.

The pizza is still made with ingredients flown in from Italy including their tomatoes that are specially picked, canned and named for Antico. The large wood burning ovens are ever present, each named after the owner, Giovanni Di Palma and  Nicola.

Acting manager for the evening, Mike and all of the Antico crew made me feel right at home and even helped me hold pizza to get some pictures . Be sure to stop by before or after your next Braves game for a slice of Italy and a smiling face.-Arielle
