Forza Storico Now Offers Take-Out, Curbside Pick-Up and Delivery

Westside Restaurant Creates Outdoor Market to Feature Classic Roman Dishes To-Go

In Response to COVID-19 Pandemic and Social Distancing Guidelines

ATLANTA (April 13, 2020) – The owners of Storico Fresco and Forza Storico, Michael Patrick, Pietro Gianni and Stephen Peterson, have decided to reopen Forza Storico and offer convenient to-go options after making the difficult decision to shut down the restaurant due to the COVID-19 pandemic in mid-March. The restaurant will offer take-out, curbside pick-up and delivery on Grubhub, Postmates and Uber Eats beginning Monday, April 13.

Forza Storico will serve a selection of classic Roman dishes. The offerings range from antipasti such as grilled octopus and Forza’s famous stuffed squash blossoms to traditional pastas like amatriciana, carbonara and cacio e pepe. Guests also can expect entrées like saltimbocca and lemon-rosemary brined chicken. The menu will be posted online and updated weekly.

Additionally, Forza Storico will carry retail items like its Buckhead sister restaurant, Storico Fresco. Retail items include Bolognese lasagna, freshly cut pastas, filled pastas, a variety of pasta sauces, meatballs, packaged cured meats, as well as a few pantry items such as olive oil, dried pasta, and much more. Forza Storico will also offer a selection of its wines to take home at 50% off the regular price and 20% off all to-go orders that are picked up at the restaurant.

To ensure the safety of all customers, the team has created an outdoor market on the patio to avoid the need to step inside the restaurant at all. Equipped with mobile refrigerators, the market allows the team to serve patrons safely and efficiently. Orders will be delivered using outdoor tables or directly to the customer’s car.
