Pinewood Forest today announced well-known restaurant, Amici Italian Café, will bring its gourmet pizza, award-winning wings and festive vibe to the community’s growing Town Center later this year. The eatery will have a prominent location at the front of the Pinewood Forest community and will be within walking distance of residents and movie industry professionals at the adjacent Pinewood Atlanta Studios facilities.
The Pinewood Forest location will include a large outdoor patio, sports bar, live music and vintage gaming. Catering will also be available. Founded in 1995, Amici Italian Café currently has eight locations in Georgia, including Athens, Covington, Lake Oconee, Madison, Milledgeville, Conyers, Monroe and Macon, and a location in Clemson, South Carolina. A new location in Easley, SC will open later this year.
"Choosing Pinewood Forest for our new location made perfect sense,” said Amici Italian Café’ co-owners Jamie Oden and Scott Goodman. “The community represents everything we love about our town."
Other concepts announced for Pinewood Forest’s Town Center include Edwin Jarvis, Leyland Blue Home Décor, Premiere Hair Studio, Sugarcoat Nails, Native Beauty Bar salon and boutique, and The Skin Society, plus cuisine from Apple Butter Bakery, Honeysuckle Gelato, Hop City + Barleygarden and Braise. This collection of unique concepts will be complemented by a nine-screen movie theater, expected to open in 2021.
“We’re excited to bring such a well-loved restaurant to Pinewood Forest,” said Rob Parker, president of Pinewood Forest. “Amici Italian Café’s creative menu and energetic atmosphere will be a great addition to our community.”
