Description

img_0540img_0541img_0543Steve’s Wood Fired Pizza is located towards the western part of Boca Raton. Just west of Lyons Road actually. Went there with Jimbo the other night. Originally we were going to Mama’s Pizza, but decided to try a place I haven’t reviewed yet. Sorry Mama’s!

Steve’s Wood Fired Pizza has been around for quite a few years now. I remember going to eat there with some friends a long time ago, before we used to watch Alias on ABC. The owner there is very involved and takes great pride in making his customers happy.

It is a quaint dark atmosphere, with a wonderful aroma. Let’s start with the staff. The staff at Steve’s Pizza is amazing. They help each other and make sure you never have an empty glass of soda, and help you along ordering. Smiles are not out of style here. What seems to be out of style here though is a decent portion for the price.

As you can see by my photos above, the pizza wasn’t even the size of a straw. And once cut the slices were about half the size of a fork. For about $10 bucks, I feel ripped off. The pizza was decent, but far from perfect. Cooking in a wood fired oven, doesn’t guarantee that the pizza will actually taste great. The sauce was bland, and needed a bit more of a sweeter taste in my opinion. The crust happened to be crisp and firm, but at the tiny size the slices were, if the crust flopped, this place wouldn’t deserve to stay open.

I will definitely try Steve’s pizza again, since past experiences have been better, but Steve I really suggest either lowering the price of these micro sized pies, or making them a bit bigger. Nobody wants to feel ripped off. Your staff is amazing, and you place is adorable. But there is nothing cute about the size pizza we had.

Steve’s Wood Fired Pizza in Boca Raton gets 4 out of 8 slices, and micro sized slices at that.

It should be pointed out, as Steve himself sent to me..

    We ordered out from Steve’s about 6 months ago. We had to give personal info just to use a coupon and the salad was so wilted and old that we just threw them away. The pizza was tasteless. Can’t say much about the staff since we did take out but my father in law who never has a mean thing to say, commented that the guy he picked up the order from was less than pleasant.

    My mom was on an American Airlines flight to La Guardia reading the American Magazine, when she came across an article of the ten best pizza restaurants in the U.S., Steve’s was listed!! When she landed, she called and my buddy and I drove to Steve’s and had the most delicious pizza in Boca.

    I was raised in New Jersey, home of the best pizzas in the world, and Steve’s Wood Fired Pizza is as good or better than those. The “Pizza Expert” reviewer talks about the pizzas’ being small and thus a ripoff. Not so. You get what you pay for and Steve’s pizzas are well worth the price. If I’m having a bunch of kids over to the house for one of my grandchildren’s birthdays, I’ll order from Rotelli or Pizza Hut or one of the other run of the mill boring pizza places. However, if I’m going out to really enjoy a great pizza, I go to Steve’s. The one thing “Expert Reviewer” got right was that the staff is phenomenal. Thanks Vladimir and thanks Steve!!

    A few years ago, we found a flyer from Steve’s Pizza in our mail box. Out of curiosity (and because of the coupon) we decided to try it. We just loved it and became regulars ever since. We have recommended the place to our relatives and friends and they all share our opinion.

    Steve’s pizza is a favorite of ours, the pizza’s are loved by both us and our kids, we love the penne pommodoro, and the salad with nuts and gorgonzola as well. Our favorite pizza is pepperoni and pineapple. We always try to save room for the Zeppoli’s for dessert.

    Brother and Sister-in-law came to visit. Very very fussy pizza eaters, must be coal fired, fresh toppings, etc., etc. Took them to Steve’s and they raved about the quality. Would love to have one in Bergen County, New Jersey.

    I first tried Steves pizza because of a flyer. Glad I did ! No wonder they have been around for many years. Great tasting pizza with a great selection of toppings. A cozy Italian style setting where you are really able to have a conversation.

    This place is a GIANT rip off. Horrible over priced pizza, that compares to pizza you can get at a sports stadium. My wife ordered pasta with ala vodka sauce and it came out all dried out. The staff looks very dis-interested in giving quality service. I would recommend frozen pizza from Publix before I ever recommend this place. Very bad place to eat any type of Italian Cuisine. Steer clear of this place.

    I LOVE YOUR PIZZA BECAUSE IT REMINDS ME OF THE PIZZA I GREW UP WITH. I LIVED IN AN ITALIAN NEIGHBORHOOD AND THE DOUGH WAS NICE AND THIN AND CRISP–NOT DOUGHY LIKE SOME I HAVE TASTED ELSEWARE.
    I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT ALONG WITH STEVE’S GREAT SALADS
