My wife and I have been at Pele more than once and have also taken friends. Always had a great experience until this time. The server was friendly and knowledgeable, but the overall service somewhat disorganized. Ended up with the appetizers coming after the main meal, and all of the dishes were very disappointing. The mussels were tiny and the... More

My husband and I were looking for Neapolitan/Wood fire pizzas in Jax and stumbled upon this place. We both ordered different pizzas and we were both pretty disappointed. The crust of mine was burnt all around and was so hard it hurt to chew. My husbands crust was not burnt but still tough to chew. The service was fantastic and... More

I went there for lunch and had a great beet salad and the crispy artichoke hearts as an appetizer. The food was prepared very well with all the ingredients working together. The service was very good. I really like the interior and want to go back to try the pizza with a glass of Italian wine!

I really enjoyed our outing at this restaurant. An upper class pizza joint with great pies, and an extensive beer & wine selection. I especially liked the heart of palm salad which had heart of palm marinated in wine and goat cheese. I've had heart of palm before and always thought eh... This was different, the wine really added something... More

Pele's is great for a nice dinner or happy hour. Happy hour is my favorite here since they also have food specials. They also have a late night happy hour. A must try in Jacksonville!

We all had a variety of foods and everything came fast. The pizza was well made and my son really enjoyed it. My wife had a salad with the raspberry vinaigrette and she didn't say a word the whole dish because she was so occupied with the food. I had eggs with sausage and bacon with Tuscan fries. Everything is... More

This is one of my favorite places in Jax. I absolutely love the wood fire pizzas, salad, and their beer and wine selection. Great location, service and menu.

I visited here for the first time with my son. The service was very slow. We both ordered pizza. Mine was just ok, but my son's pizza was burned on the outside crust. I don't think I would return.

We went to Pele's for an anniversary dinner. When we mentioned that to the server, there was no response, not even "Congrats". We weren't expecting freebies, or anything, but after 31 years, it's pretty special to us. We were glad we got there just before the end of Happy Hour. Even with special prices, my wife's drink was $6, and... More
