Gatti's Pizza LLC has announced that it will open the newest GattiTown in Clearwater, Fla., on Nov. 14. GattiTown is a 16,200-square-foot dining and entertainment center serving Gatti's signature pizzas, pastas and salads with an all-you-care-to-eat buffet.
The new GattiTown is the first of several planned to open by a local franchisee group.
"We are so excited to open GattiTown in the Clearwater community," said Dharma Malempati of Om Ventures. "I grew up with Gatti's in our neighborhood and can't wait to bring the delicious food and exciting environment to the Clearwater community."
Gatti's Midway game room includes bumper cars, mini-bowling and video and redemption games. Private parties and birthday rooms also are available at the restaurant, which seats more than 400 people.
Guests can enjoy their pizza in the large, themed dining rooms, watching their favorite shows, movies or teams. The Gatti's Capitol Theater is a movie theater-themed room with nostalgic cartoons and comedy for all ages on two 150-inch HD projection screens. Gatti'sPark is a sports-themed room with a 150-inch HD projection screen and seven 55-inch HD flatscreens.
Restaurant veteran and Clearwater native Ken Hautmann will manage the new GattiTown, which has employed over 60 staff members. The new GattiTown is located in the Bayside Bridge Plaza and will be open seven days a week.
