La Tagliatella, a European-based Italian restaurant with more than 130 locations across Spain and France, announced today its first steps in its U.S. expansion plan with the opening of a flagship store in Midtown Atlanta. Showcasing traditional Italian recipes, including more than 20 Napoletano-style pizzas made with ingredients imported from the northern regions of Italy, La Tagliatella will open at the Shops at Metropolis this quarter.
The restaurant will feature a center-stage pizza kitchen and a full wine and spirits bar. In addition to the Napoletano-style pizzas, La Tagliatella's signature menu also includes traditional dishes such as antipasta, insalate, lasagna and other pasta and sauce combinations.
"We're thrilled to bring this popular Italian concept to the United States," said Mike Muldoon, president of La Tagliatella LLC. "Europeans have been enjoying the unique cuisine and warm hospitality of La Tagliatella for the past two decades; now Americans will be able to enjoy them, too."
Operated in the United States by La Tagliatella LLC, a division of AmRest Holdings, La Tagliatella first opened in 199. The brand plans to open across multiple states throughout 2012 and 2013, including locations in Arlington, Va., Atlanta's Emory Point development and Germantown, Md.
