ATLANTA (CBS46) –

A new restaurant in the Midtown/Morningside area is bringing a taste of Naples, Italy, to Atlanta.

Varuni Napoli opened in April at the corner of Monroe Drive and Piedmont Avenue in northeast Atlanta. Its Italian-born owners showcase traditional Neapolitan pizzas inspired by their heritage.

“The authentic nature of the food, drinks and atmosphere will transport guests to the city of Napoli without leaving the restaurant,” said Chef Luca Varuni.

Varuni Napoli was featured Wednesday on Better Mornings Atlanta.
