This is a small place that seats about 20. The tables are between a nice brick oven and the glass windows that overlook downtown. Park in front on the street or at the parking lot on the corner. The menu is limited: pizza, calzone, salad, chicken or eggplant parm and a stuffed shell. A bit pricey for the size of... More

This is the way pizza should be prepared and that is why it is my favorite pizza in Winter Haven. Hand tossed and topped with fresh ingredients. Bake perfectly in the fiery oven. So good! The restaurant is intimate - on the small side.

Went for dinner. Pizza was terrible crust very very thin and Soggy also pizza was delivered 10 to 15 minutes before my husband received his lasagna. My husband asked why and the waiter said we didn't want your pizza to get cold but I had to wait for my husband to receive his meal even though he kept telling me... More

I can only speak for my experiences at the Bistro Pizza (Avenue Bar). Usually get there after work for date night with my better half. I, and we, have always had very good service there and they have one of the best pizza's in Winter Haven. We choose from the white pizza side of the menu. Really a great Italian... More

Best brick oven pizza in town! Love the white pizza and the garlic knots! Great place to stop for lunch during the week.

I have been looking for authentic Italian food close to Haines City for years! I finally found it! On my first visit I had a stromboli, which was excellent. On subsequent visits I have had pizza, which is equally good. Everything from the food to the music to the chef is authentic.

I was looking for another place and stumbled across this gem. My daughter actually finished the entire 12 pizza. I enjoyed the canzone Bistro. It is a little small but I think it opens up into Arabella's.

After a fancy (but good) dinner at Arabella's, we had high expectations for their attached cheaper pizza and pasta restaurant. We were severely disappointed. The place was small and noisy (which one could live with), and the server was friendly and fairly efficient. The problem was the food which was poor even by non-gourmet standards. Garlic "knots" were warm rolls... More

Love this downtown Winter Haven spot for a late pizza or salad (or both)! The brick oven smells great and gives a terrific ambiance to this cozy little pizza bistro. The guy making the pizza speaks real Sicilian so you know it's good.

We love their huge calzones! Tried them in Jan 2015 and had to return again this year. Got one of their salads to share and had to take over half the calzone home with us. Very good and great selections of pizzas here as well. Service was great as well. We'll be back again next year!
