I picked this restaurant out of convenience and because it had good reviews here on this site. I ordered the shrimp fra diavolo for dinner and got it spicy as their menu says you have choice of mild or spicy. If you don't ask for spicy they make it mild. The wait staff was very friendly and quick to attend... More

My wife and I first discovered this little gem last year when we were staying nearby to catch a flight out of the Fort Lauderdale.. What a great experience. The food was great, the service fantastic and the atmosphere quaint. Best of all, the prices were very reasonable. The place was hopping and all of the diners had smiles on... More

I dine out a lot and am very picky about food; especially Italian food. My friend who lives in NY comes down once a year to the area and her family highly recommended this restaurant. Well, I have frequented it many times with my family and we love love love it. Best eggplant parm in South Florida! My family has... More

While I felt a few tables could be removed from the dining area as I walked in, and thought the décor was somewhat dated, somehow, in a dated, overcrowded kinda way, it felt a bit charming. The food was excellent and was only matched by the attentive server. I'm goin' back real soon. Oh, and by the way, the desserts.....,... More

I have been here many times. Each time I visit south Florida I try to eat here. The food is always excellent. They do special requests. The service is outstanding. I am very particular when it comes to Italian food. Some may call me a food snob. This place never disappoints.

We were meeting family to celebrate their 66th wedding anniversary and they chose this restaurant. It was very busy, in fact a sign on the door said "reservations only". The early bird included soup, salad, entree and dessert. Food was plentiful and very good. Desserts are excellent

We had some friends bring us to this restaurant tonight. At first I was a little disappointed because of the strip center it was located in. Boy was I wrong. The restaurant was charming and the food was the best Italian food I have eaten in south Florida. From the soup, to the entrees everything was bursting with flavor. This... More

We had relatives from up North staying in Fort Lauderdale and they suggested that we meet at Fra Diavolo for dinner one evening. What a pleasant surprise! The food was excellent, the service impeccable and we really felt that we were getting an authentic taste of Italy. We have returned a few times ever since and will continue to do... More

While I have lived in West Broward for 40 years , I had never tried Fra Diavolo. What a mistake. The food , service and atmosphere were perfect. The appetizer for two was excellent with eggplant, shrimp, mozzarella cheese, clams casino & baked clams. The pasta fagioli was excellent and our main course, shrimp stuffed with crab meat was superb.... More
