This is a great local pizza place near the Hillsboro Lighthouse. It’s relatively small and can get super busy, but the pizza and salads are always fresh and good. No frills dining, but that’s ok with us! They have karaoke on Sundays and weekends which...can be very entertaining.More

Most dishes are prepared on the premises by the Chef/owner. Appearances are deceptive and the décor does not match the food but do not be fooled by it and come and enjoy the delicious pizzas, fresh clams linguini and the made in house canoli. The...best kept secret around!More

The place seems to be a little pizzeria but it is so much more. The homemade minestrone soup is the best I’ve ever experienced. The personal pizza had a very crisp thin crust with extremely good quality cheese, sauce and I added pepperoni For a...Brooklyn, NY girl who has a great many experiences in Italian eateries to say this is great food,,,I hope you get to enjoy. The ambiance is a diamond in the rough. I couldn’t eat the eggplant parmigiana because I over ordered. If it doesn’t meet that same heavenly experience tomorrow I will come back to eat my words !More

We really enjoyed the dinner we had here. Service very friendly and knowledgeable. We got a bottle of wine and cheese sticks to start. A salad came with our meals. I had the meat lasagna. My husband, Mark, had the meatball cacciatori. My brother in...law, Doug, had the veal parmesan. My sister in law, Karen, had eggplant parmesan. We all enjoyed our dinners very much. We got dessert to go which of course, was tiramisu. Yum! I cant forget the garlic bread knots...so good! It is a small place but great if you are wanting Italian food. The menu is HUGE!! It was difficult to choose only one thing to have.More

All dishes we had were excellent, chicken parm,eggplant parm, hot and cold subs. And for dessert, the best timamisu I've had. Reasonable prices make it even better.

We dined in, we tried the pizza and burgers. It was not crowded and still received great service. This restaurant is nestled in a small strip mall. They had gluten free opting and I was happy with the crust and pizza as a whole. My...sons like the pizza. The whole wheat pizza was very thin, I was proud be tried something new. Nice place overall.

The owner recommended red snapper franchese and it was delicious. The lentil soup was very good. Worth a visit.

I usually don’t give 5 stars after one visit but i am here. Late night decision to drive a few miles south and get a carry-out pie. My wife saw a review that said the chicken parm pizza was great. It was ! Much less...hectic than getting to the places on A1A in Deerfield Beach !!!!! And you can get a beer while waiting. Still, probably best to phone in order. .More

We were so fortunate to have this little place just blocks from our vacation condo. While a little rough around the edges in some aspects, the food is reliably excellent. We didn't try pizza, but the pasta and chicken dishes were uniformly outstanding. We wished...they would have drained the salad greens a bit more, but that's a minor glitch. If you're in the Pampano area, give it a try.More
