Sure, you can have DiGiorno at home with a movie ... or you can go out, get a gourmet pizza and make it a full blown date night. Here's where to go if you are ready for a night out:

Antico – Frequently heralded as among the best places to grab pizza in the United States, Antico is conveniently located on Atlanta's Westside halfway between Georgia Tech and Atlantic Station. That means it's the perfect location for grabbing a pie before or after you take in a Tech football game, shop at IKEA or shop for home decor.

Menu Pick: Take your tastebuds up a notch with the flavorful Diavola pizza.

Do – One of Atlanta's best restaurants with a view, Do is a great setting for a casual yet stunning evening meal before heading to a show at the King Plow Arts Center. Want more? Head just up the street to Westside Provisions District for some shopping.

Menu Pick: If you like wings and pizza but don't want to order both, definitely get the Recital, a blend of Buffalo sauce, chicken breast, blue cheese crumbles, a blend of cheeses and ranch dressing.
955 W. Marietta St. (404) 541-9060.

No. 246 – With all that downtown Decatur offers, a date night that starts at No. 246 is a great gateway to fun whether it's taking in a show at Eddie's Attic, trying new beer at The Brick Store Pub or heading over to Oakhurst for their free jazz nights.

Menu Pick: Go with the classic Margherita pizza and be sure to save room for their desserts.
129 E. Ponce de Leon Ave. 678-399-8246.

Colletta – While Colletta doesn't have an Atlanta ZIP code, it does have all the credentials of a great Atlanta restaurant. After work, go home and get casually dressed then head up to Avalon where you can grab a pie then take advantage of all that the live/work/play destination has to offer.

Menu Pick: The Brussels Sprout: pancetta, honey crisp apples, honey, parmesan.
