Our server literally threw our food on the table. We started with a salad and had pizza after. Never brought us clean plates for the pizza. Threw our bill at us and our credit card landed on the floor. Never even bothered to pick it up!

We enjoyed our dinner prior to attending the theater just down the street. The service was great and we loved our server. My husband ordered the Veal Marsala and a week later he is still talking about how much he enjoyed it. I ordered the Lobster Ravioli and it was full of lobster with a sauce that was not too heavy. We were in and out without rushing within 1 hour in plenty of time for the play.

This is more for the speakeasy in the other part of the restaurant. Great cocktails but in the pricey side 14 for a 3/4 full martini. They were good and well crafted and well presented. The sausage pizza was a 4.5 out of 5 but the truffle mushroom was a 3/5. Overall I’d go back and recommend.

Had the vegan pizza and it may as well not exist. It was gross and should not be on the menu. Note to the restaurant just don’t offer anything vegan if the option is for food that taste like cardboard. Because I used to love the Bianca Pizza here I was so excited for a Vegan option but I really just wished they hadn’t. Probably won’t eat here again. Also my server was just not friendly and seemed unaware of what was going on. The host however was very pleasant and engaged us. The polenta taste like it was frozen prior and not completely fried before it was brought out to us. It was luke warm with cold sauce. Also they serve it super bland here and without even salt or pepper it was a waste of $10. I don’t buy the “this is how Italians eat it” as I adored the fried polenta I ate in Tuscany last summer. Also I ate it at Chima’s the weekend prior and it was delicious. This was Just subpar all around and really disappointing to someone that really supports recommends the JEY restaurant group. Left filled with regret and unfortunately still hungry.

Dined here on a recent visit to Ft. Lauderdale. Fabulous food - nice outdoor tables. Get the meatballs and the polenta fries ... the best I've ever had!

Always a good time! Nona’s Sunday Gravy is delicious and enough food for a table (literally, three of us shared it!). The speakeasy in the back is also a cool place to lounge and enjoy a good strong drink

My wife and I had dinner at pizza craft last night before the show at the BrowardCenter. We chose this place for convenience and they take reservations. When we arrived the hostess was pleasant and seated us promptly. The server was polite and efficient.
We started with the cauliflower appetizer which was tasty but not hot enough.. a reoccurring theme all night. Then we shared the Sunday gravy which again wasn’t hot enough even after it was sent back.
Overall my wife and I felt that the food was just ok and that they were more concerned with turning tables than putting out hot food IMO.

Went there before a play. We had a reservation and was seated promptly. We were approached by our server quickly ordered a drink and the meatball app to start. It was delicious. The red sauce it rested in was great. The Caesar salad was also very good as was the chicken Marsala. Will definitely be back to try the pizza.
Most importantly we made it to the play on time.

Pizza Craft has a nice twist on your everyday Italian fare. Their oxtail lasagna was not only interesting but tasty. The giant meatballs were savory and well-prepared. Our other family members ordered a cheese pizza which they found hot and flavorful. The table also shared an order of fried calamari which was cooked and spiced perfectly. Portions are just right. Our waiter, Ben, was very nice and efficient.

Not going back.

We had requested an inside table, but there were none available when we got there. We ended up outside, which was fine as that night was breezy.
The waitress was amazing, even though they were very busy.
The food is usually amazing here, tonight it wasn’t great. The pasta sauce was very watery and the pasta was not fully cooked. We were heading to the broward center so we didn’t want to wait for it to be redone. The pizza was good, but the two pasta dishes were not at all.
I chalk it up to how busy they were, as I’ve never had a problem here before.

If you are going to Broward Center, this is one of the few restaurants in the area fighting over who could be more mediocre.

pC makes its own pastas and bufalo mozz in house. Their meatballs were excellent with a fine texture and sauce. The roasted cauliflower sits atop a tasty alfredo type sauce. The house salad was very disappointing because it was drenched in a too vinager-y dressing and the freshness of the veg didn’t come thru. Also it is open air and very noisy. Our server Francesca was very attentive even though she had many other tables in the restaurant.

We love Pizza Craft and visit every time we go to Fort Lauderdale! The food is consistently delicious, the ambiance outside is perfect and the service is always fantastic! We highly recommend the Polenta Fries, I always crave them! Any time we are looking for somewhere to take out of town guests, we take them to Pizza Craft!

Our food came out cold. We were going to order the meatballs as an appetizer, but the waitress recommended the crazy bread, so we ordered that instead. The meat inside was tasty, but the center was cold, which was very unappetizing. The pizza my daughter and I ordered to share, was okay, not terrible, just not worth coming back for. My husband ordered the oxtails, but wasn't impressed either. The waitress was nice, but not very attentive.

Pizza is great. Brick oven if that's your thing. Happy hour pricing. But the Manager Ricky is everything that's wrong with human beings, and the service is spotty, and that's being nice. No real ambiance to speak of, wobbly tables, not much better than your average pizza place. Without getting into too much detail. The hype around sitting there eating your pizza is way over-rated. Get your pizza to go and eat it at home.

Our 4 meals were each served at a different time. Two of us were eating while two had no food. Another dish was served. The last meal was served after the two were done eating.!!!!!!!
My chopped salad was wilted & soggy.
The pizzas were great.
The server never mentioned the wine special until we asked about a happy hour price.

A pleasant surprise. We were looking for a casual Italian restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere and good food and we found it at Pizza Craft. We sat outside on a nice night and the staff was very welcoming and gracious. We started with a tasty bottle of Pino Grigio which was served cold. Our entrees of Chicken Milanese, Chicken Francese and Rigatoni Vodka were are delicious, served hot with hearty portions. The restaurant is on an active street with lots of bars but we found it entertaining and all part of the ambience. We finished dinner at about 10pm and were told that the area gets loud and crazy at about 10:30pm. We look forward to returning to Pizza Craft the next time we are in the area.
