If all goes according to plan, il Giallo Osteria & Bar, a new coastal Italian concept, is set to open next week on Roswell Road in Sandy Springs.

The much-anticipated first restaurant from Jamie Adams and Leonardo Moura has its roots in Veni Vidi Vici, the Midtown Italian fixture from Atlanta restaurateur Pano Karatassos and the Buckhead Life Group, which closed at the end of May, after a 20-year run.

Adams was the longtime executive chef at Vici and Moura was the general manager — roles they will repeat at il Giallo (il-JAH-lo) with Karatassos’ advice and blessing. Last week the partners were at the restaurant, surrounded by workmen hanging light fixtures and putting the finishing touches on the walls and trim.
