After a long day on the Amtrak and checking in at our resort we stopped here for a pizza, not knowing anything about this restaurant. This was right by our resort and we didn't even have to drive! We ordered a Pizza Shack special and it was awesome! Crust was perfectly done and it was topped with fresh ingredients. Service... More

Never had a bad dish. I especially like the steak and shrimp dishes. They always come with a fresh, tasty salad and a side pasta.

I have been coming to Ft. Lauderdale once a year for 13 years and I can't believe this was the first time I tried F and V's; it was really good. The pasta is homemade and it was fabulous! The stuffed chicken Marsala was good also. You will have leftovers; the portions are huge.

Great Italian restaurant that is frequented by all of the locals and any tourists and visitors that ask at any of the nearby hotels. Great food, reasonable prices, friendly service, and you do not have to be dressed up to feel comfortable and "at home" at this restaurant.

The food and service are excellent! Warm and cozy atmosphere. Certainly not what I would consider a pizza 'shack'. Visited twice this week while on vacation. First time we had dinner specials that came with salads. I had a frutti de mar that included mussels, clams scallops, shrimp and squid over homemade linguine with a white sauce. It was delicious....

we had gone to this place for decades but stopped due to the bad wait staff- some of the daily features are real Italian style foods my Grandma made me-food is very good-value acceptable- The décor is stifling and needs a redo- We saw a waiter actually followed someone out of the restaurant to berate them on what he felt...
