Where can you find the best pizza in South Florida?
I'm still partial to Frankie's Pizza on Bird Road. After fifty years it is still going strong.
Back when I was a student at UM in the early 1970's, Parente's Pizza (I think that's how you spelled it) was great. They also threw in garlic rolls. We ordered it for our after-rehearsals at the Ring Theatre.Of course, most of the time we were pretty stoned so the cardboard box it came in tasted pretty good, too.As for today, I haven't really found a consistently good place since I moved back here 8 years ago.
Spris on Lincoln Road is the best in Miami. Crispy thin crust, great sauce, tasty toppings, or good just plain cheese. Priced right too.
I love Andiamo's, but I may change my mind tonight. Tried Anthony's for the first time last weekend and it didn't blow me away. Then again, I didn't try their specialty pies.
Frankie's really is great, but I always go back to Casola's. Simple, cheesy, not too greasy. Love, love, love their pizza.
The aptly named Miami's Best Pizza across from UM has to be up there, along with Casola's.
Nothing beats Rey de la Pizza Cubana, ha ha just kidding. All these choices are great but I guess it all depends on the mood. Casola's is great when its 1 am and you're buzzed. Spris (Lincoln or the Gables) is good when you don't mind spending a little extra and in the mood for some goat cheese on your pizza. Actually, there's a place on Coral Way and 67th that I really like called Leo's Pizza.
My favorites: Spris, Piccola Pizza on Coral Way, Slice N Ice in the Grove and Primos and Genos on the Beach.BTW, Rick, remember that photo you posted a few months ago from a local blogger at Hialeah High of the sign that said "Inglish-Gratis"?A producer at WLRN is trying to track down the photographer.More details here.http://forums.miamibeach411.com/index.php?/forums/viewthread/4861/
I second the nomination for Miami's Best on US-1. Never been that big of a fan of pizza at Casola's. Always thought a little undercooked. Everything else there is yummy, though.For a chain, California Pizza Kitchen is okay.
It may have been the only pizza available to me as a kid on the Key, but as an adult, I drive for miles to eat there!Sir Pizza on Key Biscayne. periodpunto
I used to be obsessed with Riviera Pizza when I lived in the Gables. I always have been, and always will be a die-hard Gino's fan. Last Thursday, a group of friends and I ate a large Gino's Pizza... on the bar at Doraku. Whoops. I think Andiamo comes in a close second, especially when it's not hot - lukewarm Andiamo is heavenly.
I agree with Tere on Casola's that place is great. In Hialeah though, not considered any mecca of pizzas, Polo Norte has THE absolute best "Cuban" pizzas (like Rey's Pizza, except they actually taste like something).Other than that, there's a little place off Gov't Center called Nostra Pizza and they have to serve some of the best pizza I've ever had in Miami.
Miami's Best has been a recent re-discovery. It was a Little Caesar's many years ago. Both incarnations are very good.Sir Pizza in the Key was always a favorite. Their sauce is on the sweet side.My all-time sentimental favorite no longer exists: D'Pizza of UM.Ooh, the garlic rolls...
I'm partial to thin crust and not soft. Wood oven preferably. Charred underneath. Not a lot of toppings like Pizza Rustica. So no Casola's (too soft) and no Miami's Best (way too greasy). Never warmed up to Andiamo. Anthony's when is good is fantastic, but it is inconsistent.I like Spris and the margherita pizza at Rosinella's. And there's a place called Piccolo's on 125 St in North Miami that makes very good whole wheat pizza. That's where I order delivery.I tried the new Pizzavolante yesterday, and it is very good. Great mozzarella, although bufala mozzarella on pizza is an acquired taste. The Brooklynese calzone was perfect.
Andiamo is at the top of my list. I also enjoy Blu in South Miami and just had a pizza bianche with speck that was very good. Piola has some good pizza as well.
SuperBee I liked Rivera too, but it got spotty. I like Mario the Bakers in North Miami - plain pizza. John's on Pines is pretty good (he is the nephew of the Mario owner). Also I like Big Louie's on Sunrise (that is the best one and it is clean). I don't like a lot of cheese so I don't like Casola, also like Anthony's but it is not real pizza.Actually my father had a small professional pizza over in the house (fit two pies). He made the best pizza.Pizza, one of my favorite subjects!
Thank you, GoD.And what -- no love for Steve's in North Miami?
Steve's is not clean. I saw a guy in the kitchen area with a tissue...nuff said. I am a fanatic about dirty floors, bathrooms, etc.
