Very good pizza. Overall good food but one time a couple with us was served a half burned pizza with the comment that another one was coming to replace it. Unfortunately the burned flavor was in the whole pizza - it was pretty badly charred- and the pizza replacement they brought was only half size. When asked why the waiter... More

We just recently discovered Pele - it is an exciting new find in Jacksonville. This visit we tried the Broken Meatball pizza - it was very good, but the Salumist pizza we had on our first visit was AWESOME. Service was excellent: friendly, low-key and buzzing. We began with an Arugula salad with feta and pistachios and drizzled with honey... More

I have visited this restaurant a few times with family and friends - everything has been excellent, from the food to the service. Excellent beverage selection. Also, honest, my husband left his credit card at the restaurant at lunchtime today and the ladies had the foresight to contact his office to let him know. That's service! Much appreciated and Thank... More

I had lunch at Pele's while out and about in Riverside. I had heard good things about the restaurant and wanted to check it out for myself. I was not disappointed. The pizza was excellent and they had Jever Pilsner on tap that I had not seen outside of Germany. Melissa was my server and she took good care of... More

We usually come here for the unique pizzas, but have recently begun to try other things on the menu. The last visit, it was lasagna and was especially thrilled with the dish. This has become routine with no disappointments any time we visit. We will continue trying other menu items until we eventually try everything.

We experienced excellent customer service while dining at Pele's, but found the pizza to be tasty, but average.

Stopped by on our way to the big soccer match. Wife and I had a small pizza and we were both quite satisfied. No complaints with the wood-fired pizzas. Didn't drink, but were amazed at the great beer list. Would definitely go again.

I think I just discovered a new favorite casual restaurant in Jacksonville! Pele is at Park & King in Riverside, which is a very charming little neighborhood trying to get back on its feet. Our first visit to Pele could not have been better - EVERYTHING was excellent. The hostess was welcoming and smiling. The bartender was friendly and pleasant.... More
