Fort Lauderdale is a very nice Florida vacation spot, one of many indeed. Have you been to the beaches in Fort Lauderdale? After a long day out on that Florida coastline, you’re going to come back to your condo and be quite hungry. That’s when it’s good to know which restaurants are the best so you can set the GPS and get there in a jiffy. Are you up for some Italian food? Which Italian restaurant in Fort Lauderdale would you pick out of the following choices?
Dolce Salato Pizza & Gelato not only rhymes, but it’s the top ranked Italian restaurant in Fort Lauderdale according to the travel site that I use, which gauges popularity according to registered user reviews. In one of the reviews, there is a mention of stuffed pizza, and that just sounds delicious. You can imagine there is going to be great pizza at many of the Italian restaurants on this list. Some will be better known for their pizza and certain dishes, however, and as you know, this restaurant is definitely known for its gelato, too.
Franco and Vinny’s is another great Fort Lauderdale Italian restaurant. Some of the dishes you can get there include stuffed shrimp, chicken francaise and more, along with great garlic bread with cheese and the best pizza crust around. This restaurant is definitely going to grab your attention, and it’s said to be a good atmosphere for families. What Italian restaurant isn’t a good atmosphere for families?
Luigi’s Coal Oven Pizza just has an authentic ring to it’s name. I would expect to go there and have a very delicious pizza with a very crispy crust. Brick oven pizzas are scrumptious! As you can imagine, it would be fun to get to a place like this and keep it simple, ordering drinks and a pizza. This might be the place I’d rather be on a vacation. However, if I was with my partner only, then I might pick a more romantic place for my first visit.
No one said you can’t visit all of these Italian restaurant picks, but at the end I’m going to give you a few more honorable mentions. Bistro Mezzaluna Restaurant is another top choice. An Italian bistro has to make the list of the best Italian restaurants. This might make for a great lunch pit stop when you’re out shopping and visiting various attractions. Or, you can place a to go order and bring it to the beach for a lunch picnic.
Bravo Italian Ristorante is another top lunch spot, but remember, these lunch spots can be great dinner spots too, as long as they are still open at night. Now it’s time for a few honorable mentions. Primante Brothers Restaurant also looks like a great place to eat at according to the reviews, as does Giuliano’s Italian Restaurant and Valentino Cucina Italiana. Again I ask, which is going to be your choice for a meal in Fort Lauderdale?
