You can count on CPK for a good pizza. They also have an assortment of salads and other dishes, and recently started offering a special lunch offering that is very moderately priced. The food is okay. The music and din of the restaurant can be a little loud. At peak hours, parking in the lot can be difficult. Desserts are... More

We come with friends or family. Good choices of salads or pizza. Salads come either lunch size or dinner sizes. Staff is friendly, the service is quick. This one is renovated, there is seating outside on the terrace, its relaxing, but very cold, ladies, bring your sweaters !! That's the only problem! All the food is very good.

I live on the beach and pass by this place loose everyday. I always wondered what kind of food they had and what it looked like inside. I finally decided to come in and it was the best decision ever. Our waiter Sam was so nice and even gave us all the I got about the company and how it... More

Ok, so I know they have been around for a while but this was our first time going to this place. I prefer Humpy's and other Mom and Pop pizza places, but we were in the area and hungry. So the jist is just like the title says. Very nice decor, nice people seating the customers and done quickly. As... More

I have eaten at their restaurant at Sawgrass Mills several times and that one is also very good. Love their Asian sallad and also their pizzas with pear and gorgonzola is delicious! Their staff has always been friendly and their service is quick. Relaxing atmosphere and not too loud music. Nice place to have something good to eat. Also tried... More

We stopped in here right off the plane and had a great supper. Our helpful waiter (Andrew) informed us that this restaurant is a "test" restaurant that tries out new things before approving them for the rest of the chain. As a result we had a test soup called "Farmer's Market" soup that was incredible, but not available at another... More

I recommend as a starter the quinoa salade and the multigrain pasta cream garlic with mushrooms & shrimps as a main-course. Great atmosphere, very relaxing

I have eaten here many times in the past, but when I visited again after an absence of about six months, I was disappointed. The gleaming modern decor which was such an attractive part of the restaurant has been replaced with an ugly, mismatched array of furniture that seems intended to suggest a fake rustic atmosphere instead. The chairs and... More

This was the Route 1 location, in case it gets confused with others. Had a Sicilian Pizza for Take-Out (pepperoni, sausage, oregano leaves, more). The pizza was very good, but this is more of a shout-out to the manager for putting up with my wife! CPK only sells whole pizzas. My wife gave the manager a somewhat humorous hard time,... More

I avoided this place for YEARS, because 1) it is a chain, and 2) I'm loyal to the pizza at another place in town...so why should I go here, I thought. Bummer -- missed out on a lot of years of good eating. A very open dining area includes a hightop bar, over which you can watch the kitchen staff... More
