Rosati's to Bring Chicago-Style Pizza to Chastain Park

New pizzeria coming to Buckhead.

Rosati's, a Chicago-based pizza franchise, is adding a second Atlanta area location.  The new Rosati's will open in north Buckhead on Wieuca Road, just off Roswell Road.  The restaurant opens in place of Chastain Tavern, which had been for sale and was recently sold and closed.

Chastain Tavern opened in late August 2014.  

The first Atlanta area Rosati's opened in 2013 in Cumming in place of a former Buckhead Pizza Co.  Local resident Matt Smith is the franchisee of both the Cumming and Buckhead restaurants.  

Rosati's is a casual restaurant featuring a full bar, Chicago-style, thin-crust, double-dough pizzas, calzones, a variety of pastas, sandwiches, salads, desserts and catering. The Buckhead location, which measures 4,772 square feet, will provide seating for about 150 plus outdoor seating for 100 in addition to a bar with seating for 20.  The restaurant has two floors and plans to better utilize the second floor.  

Sources indicate that the Buckhead Rosati's is targeting an October opening.  

Steve Josovitz with The Shumacher Group represented the seller in the transaction.  

Have you been to Rosati's?  Do you think Rosati's will do well with neighborhood favorite Fellini's so close?  What is your favorite style of pizza?

Why would you open a pizza restaurant RIGHT next to Fellini's??? I don't see this lasting long.

Any world=class city must maintain a 1:1 ratio of Starbuck:pizza joints. I'm glad to see the Risati's franchisee is doing his part.

Good luck. I'll certainly give it a try.

I wish them luck, but that location is doomed because of the lack of parking! I agree with Greenwave, opening next to Fellinis won't help...

Good luck to them. Agree that this location just seems cursed.

The very nice folks at Chastain Tavern gave it their best shot; good luck to them as well.

Difficult in and out location. Atlanta does not like that.
Prior concepts at this spot have failed. Another Pizza Place ? ? Sorry - Death Watch

Rosatis is going to put Felinis in their back pocket. What normal person will choose an Atlanta based pizza restaurant over a Chicago based. Oh, and anyone who knows pizza knows that Chicago thin crust is wayy better than deep dish so cant use the deep dish excuse.
