I grew up in Upstate NY where delicious, fresh-baked pizza is a given, but when I moved to New Orleans there was no such thing! Then we found Pizza Florence across from Clearview Mall in Metairie. The first time we went there it was because of their really cool neon sign. We figured that a place with a sign like that (you'll have to see it for yourself!) just had to be good -- and it was -- and is! Try it for yourself... if you appreciate traditional Italian-style pizza, you won't be disappointed!!

I have eaten here a couple of times. I have had the BBQ pizza and then the meatball Mediterranean Lavish Wrap. Both were very good. The pizza had bbq cicken, onions and slices of tomato and the meatball wrap was meatballs wrapped in thin crust coating. Totally awesome. The price is very reasonable and the portions are a good size. I will be going back!

This place was recommended by 3 different people for the "outstanding" pizza. The pizza itself wasn't bad (but we get our pizza from the North End, so no comparison), but the service was bewildering. It didn't appear that they had enough waitresses working (although it wasn't too busy yet when we were there), but the waitresses refuse to write down your order. We both of the waitresses come over to our table at different time and ask us to repeat our order - 4 times! And then they still forgot my side salad. And they never checked on us, so I had to go find the waitress and ask her for my side. They did seem to have a very varied menu.

I was pleasantly surprised by this place. It is not impressive from the outside, and in the inside trys a little to hard to be like Italy to me. However, the food was good. I had the Turkey Pita. It was very good if a little heavy on the ranch. The pasta salad was also very good. My husband ordered the Philly Steak Pizza, and he very much enjoyed it. He can be rather picky about pizza. The server seemed a little standoffish at first, but she warmed up throughout the meal. I only ate about half of my pita because it was very large. She was very concerned that I didn't like it and seemed to want to make sure that I enjoyed my meal. I assured her that I did. We will definitely be back.
