Description: Welcome to Poppy's Pizza! True NY Pizza Voted best in Fort Myers. We have a 70 year old Brooklyn recipe for our dough and sauce! Hand tossed and cooked in a brick oven to perfection since the 40's . We have yet to enter a competition. But, we have been told our wings are the best in town. Tossed in our own secret Buffalo sauce. Poppy's is the home of the 30 inch pizza!! Bring a HUGE appetite for this one. Fresh salads and made from scratch entree's. There is something for everyone at Poppy's. Ice cold Beer and a nice Wine selection. Have a party or event coming up? We will cater.

“Not Fast Service but Good Food”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

Was in the mood for pizza and found this place. It's located in the Planet Fitness shopping center. It has some outdoor tables for seating along with 2 dining room areas and a comfortable bar. I ordered a small veggie pizza and it had nice size pieces of several veggies. The sauce was good and the crust was delicious. Not your normal pizza crust, more like delicious bakery bread taste. My husband ordered the Momma's White pizza. It was made of ricotta, mozzarella, romano pecorino, olive oil and roasted garlic. We both agreed that it was definitely worth the trip, even with the wait. They also offer several "starters", salads, wings, spaghetti, ravioli, lasagna, and several subs. The service was friendly and we would go back.

“Best pizza in South West Florida”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

We have tried so many different pizza places in this area and none seem to come close to the quality at Poppy's. Always fresh, hot and with an abundance of cheese and toppings. Thank you Poppy's Pizza, our quest for the best pizza in SWFL is over...You have our hearts :)

“Not So Good”
Reviewed January 10, 2014 via mobile

We had the pizza with lots of meat. Neither one of us cared for it. It had an odd smoked flavor that was disagreeable to both of us.

“Great Spot! Great People! Better Food!”
Reviewed December 25, 2013

The wife and I stopped in at Poppy's the other night for dinner and decided to check out the menu for a review here. We had ordered from Poppy's in the past but have not been in since the move to the new space, the food was always good we just do not eat pizza out that often.

Well we are glad we stopped in. We were greeted by the owners and welcomed. The menu looked great, we ordered a side salad with feta vinaigrette, six wings, a dozen garlic knotts and a large white pizza.

The salad was great well the dressing was great lettuce is lettuce, the wings were legitimate wings, when I say that I mean that they are good enough to be a wing destination. they were delicious!

The garlic knotts were as good as advertised and amongst the best you will find. The pizza was delicious well seasoned and perfectly flavored. The crust was not exactly the way I like it but was delicious and would make most people more than happy. Lest a reader think I did not like the pizza, far from it, it was delicious top 5 in Ft. Myers and Ft. Myers does have some really good pizza spots.

All in all Poppy's is great cozy spot to have dinner, a drink or just nice conversation. The ambiance is great and so is the food. Worth the drive from the Beach or Ft. Myers proper.

Give Poppy's a try! You will go back!!!!
