Tutto Restaurant & Bar is coming soon to Historic Downtown Roswell. The new restaurant will open alongside The Real Fix Pizzeria, a restaurant from F&H Food Trading Group. The Real Fix Pizzeria will offer casual Italian fare, largely consisting of a variety of pizzas. The restaurant has been delayed repeated but will reportedly open August 26th.
Tutto will open in space previously occupied by Roswell Towne Realty and later Cork & Canvas, at the corner of Elizabeth Way and Alpharetta Street.
Tutto is being opened by Bob Gihwan Kim and his "Canton Dining Group, Inc." Research indicates this is the first restaurant for the group, but the company name hints at there being plans for additional restaurants.
Tutto means all, or entire, in Italian, which could hint at the restaurant featuring Italian fare or perhaps that it will be a "worldly" restaurant covering "all" cuisines. If the former holds true, Tutto will have some stiff competition from the likes of nearby Osteria Mattone. Osteria Mattone is less than a mile from Tutto and features "regional Italian cuisine with a heavy focus on Roman fare." Osteria Mattone opened late last year and is the second endeavor from Ryan Pernice and chef Ted Lahey of Roswell's Table & Main.
Additionally, "Basilico" opened a few days ago in the former Dominick's / Sugo space about a mile away. Basilico is not a strictly Italian restaurant like its predecessors, and instead offers "eclectic food" "based on several Mediterranean countries."
