Omnivore - Ammazza to open in Old Fourth Ward

New Italian eatery to open in Old Fourth Ward


Ammazza will open in early July in the Old Fourth Ward. Brothers Hugh and Jason Connerty are hoping to establish a unique Italian eatery which features a menu that will focus on locally grown ingredients.

In addition to offering Neapolitan-style pizzas, the menu will serve up dishes like fried spaghetti, various antipasto selections, and desserts like traditional cannolis and sfogliatelle.

The restaurant will be a fast-casual concept, allowing diners to order at the counter and have their meal delivered to their table. The beverage selection will be vast with a full-service bar, Sprecher's gourmet sodas on tap, and house-made limoncellos.

Ammazza will open at 591 Edgewood Ave., near Miso Izakaya.
