We stumbled across this place as it was just next to our hotel. My main concern was that it was on the beach front and would be really expensive, however this was not the case. I have been 2 times now and tried 2 different sandwiches, which were both so good and the guys serving are great, the tip to... More

Visited this cafe/ pizzeria on North Atlantic boulevard. Busy and popular with locals. Had the most amazing pizza cooked fresh to order and others in my group had these huge sandwiches. No frills but great food. Cash only Honestly one of the best pizzas I have ever had. Open 24 hours 7 days a week. Thoroughly recommend a visit.

We were in Ft Lauderdale and looking for Italian food after several days of seafood. We Googled it and found this little gem. We each ordered a traditional dinner, i. e. eggplant parmigiana, chicken piccata, spaghetti and pizza. The portion sizes were large enough for a second meal; the flavors were pleasing, and the staff was friendly and efficient.

Just like the title indicates, you go here to eat and because it's close to the beach. Only had the pizza, but will be going back for one of their signature sandwiches.

Don't expect fancy here. This is down and dirty, good food. The sandwiches are unique. I don't understand why anyone comes here and doesn't get a loaded sandwich (fries, cole slaw, tomato); that's what makes it a Primanti. The cappacola with egg is the way to go. By the way, cash only.

We had four slices of pizza which equalled on XL pizza. Each slice was $2.59 plus $0.69 for each topping, very reasonable. All of which were Very Good! Great location... just across the street from the beach!

One of the best reasons to visit Fort Lauderdale is Primanti Brothers. Their unique sandwich which contains french fries and cole slaw is always a treat. Always made with home made italian bread, they offer many meat and cheese combinations. We didn't try the pizza because the sandwiches are so good, but the pizza seems very popular as well. We...

Pizza and the Primanti sandwiches are the staple fare and there is little else to choose from however what they do is excellent. The room is in need of a tidy up and is a bit cramped with tables that aren't easy to sit round or fully utilise. Pleasant staff eager to please, good food and prices meant that we... More
