BE Scene – Gio’s Chicken Amalfitano


Giovanni Di Palma, of Antico Pizza Napoletana fame, continues to bring traditional Italian cuisine to Atlanta’s Westside with the addition of Gio’s Chicken Amalfitano. Located in a former Brinks cash depository building adjacent to Antico, Gio’s offers signature Italian chicken dishes like the one we sampled which is their world-famous Sorrento Lemon Chicken, highlighting  typical flavors from  the area of  Naples, Italy.

Gio’s features a menu of five signature chicken dishes – plus a few rotating and seasonal offerings –  available to-go in individual and family-style sizes, served with roasted potatoes and homemade focaccia. Other offerings include chicken soup, baked ziti and ricotta cheesecake. True to form, everything will be fresh, handmade and artisan quality – and when the Gio’s truck full of Bell & Evans chickens is empty, the doors will close for the day.

Joining Antico and Gio’s, Bar Antico, a traditional gelateria and caffe, will open this spring. In total, these Italian eateries will form Piazza San Gennaro, an Old World-style piazza, along an entire city block. Diners can enjoy the beloved Italian experience of all-day dining in a family-friendly, casual environment.

Gio’s Chicken Amalfitano is located at 1099 Hemphill Ave, Atlanta, GA 30318 (guests will enter through the alley next to Antico) and will be open for takeout daily from 5 p.m. until they run out of chicken. For more information, please visit www.gioschicken.com.
