Description

When Stallone’s Italian Kitchen first opened in Boca Raton, it didn’t even dawn on me that I knew it from Long Island.  My wife and I were eating dinner there when the owners father came over to see if we were enjoying our meal.  He mentioned that he owned a couple of places in Long Island.  I told him I recalled eating at a place my mother used to take me to called Stallone’s near what used to be Pergaments when I was a kid and I used to order a Billy Burger.  But outside this type of fast food place I had never eaten at Stallone’s before.  Who would have guessed that this guy used to own that burger joint too!

So obviously I was a little biased and immediately wanted to like this place, if for no other reason then for nostalgia.  Usually it was a treat to go to this place since it wasn’t too close to the house.  The first dozen or so times I ate at Stallone’s I always ordered pasta dishes and never really tasted the pizza.  My family and I stopped going to Stallone’s for a couple of years due to the prices constantly rising.  Just became too much to go there as often as we used to.  I always noticed that they had one of these fancy pizza ovens.  A smaller type of version then the one that Mario’s has in Boca Raton.

The other day my father-in-law was visiting and suggested we take my son for pizza.  Since I had to go down the block to run an errand first, I suggested we try Stallone’s.

Let me backtrack a second.  Back at my old office we used to order pizza from Stallone’s occasionally and it was usually pretty decent, but I never judged it since by the time it got to the office it was always soggy.  Technically we were too far for them to deliver to, so I never complained.

We ordered a plain pie and waited.  When the pie came out it looked nice and hot and had a great presentation.  Only thing was it looked tiny.  This was not a very large pie.  Maybe 16 inches at most.  After letting it cool for a minute or so, we all bit in.  Oddly enough at the same time we all said “too much sauce”.  Stallone’s piles on the sauce!  Not that their sauce is nasty, but too much causes the dough to get soggy and the cheese to fall off and this is exactly the experience we had there.  None of us wanted another slice due to the consistency of this pizza.

The ingredients they are using are very good, and my issue isn’t with the taste so much as it is with their ratio when making it.  Why have the expensive pizza oven if you will just throw garbage into it?  Take your time Stallone’s and make each pizza with care, your customers will notice.
I will give Stallone’s in Boca Raton 4 out of 8 slices.

    Weird. Everyone once in a while I like extra sauce so long as the crust can hold it. I need to try this place.

    I ate here probably about a year ago, and I haven't had a desire to return to the restaurant when I'm in Boca. I seem to remember having the same issue of having too much sauce and cheese on the pizza, basically causing the cheese to slide right off of the crust. I think we left over most of the pizza and didn't even bother taking the leftovers with us.

    I could be getting my Boca Raton Italian restaurants confused, but I do seem to remember that while Stallone's pizza was pretty bad, they did have really good garlic bread…

    Yeah, their garlic knots or rolls or what ever the heck they call them down here are pretty good!

    In re: Worst pizza ever

    Dear Mr. Stallone:

    Last night at approximately 8:00 P.M., I faxed my order requesting a pizza with ham and pineapple that was to be delivered. Shortly thereafter I received a telephone call from your establishment stating you had no ham and no pineapple so the female representative asked if I would like to substitute prosciutto instead of ham. Since I was unable to speak due to radiation to my vocal cord, I said yes not knowing that all I would taste is “salt,” not even cheese. When I say it tasted disgusting, that is being kind.

    I have been dining in and ordering take-out from Stallone’s for the past few years but after last nights incident and how it was handled, I would never consider going back, rather I will be telling everyone I come in contact with how bad the pizza tasted and how my complaint was handled and what one could expect when eating at Stallone’s.

    I come in contact with at least 30 homeowners a day. In fact I have done work on Frank Stallone’s home.

    The way your company handled this matter was so unprofessional it was actually comical and I will now be posting this on the Internet so people doing a search on where to eat may find my posting or perhaps one may be considering calling up for a delivery.

    Immediately after tasting how bad the pie tasted, I sent in a second fax stating only two slices were removed AND all of the prosciutto was removed from the slice and it still tasted like salt and the prosciutto was put back in the carton and I was hoping that a plain pie could be exchanged and delivered. To my surprise, the female representative called stating they could deliver another pie however I would still be charged the full amount. I was shocked. At least give the customer a discount if they were unhappy with the pie and 6 of the eight slices AND all of prosciutto was still in the box.

    All I can say is business must be pretty bad at Stallone’s if you do not make good on a terrible tasting pizza.

    Perhaps your attitude had something to do with it. Didn't know prosciottto was very salty? Get a life.
