little_mennas_pizza.jpgAfter receiving a tip from someone who used to work at another place in Boca Raton that I really liked, I decided to give Little Menna’s Pizzeria a try. Little Menna’s is located on 1619 SE 3rd Court 954-482-0914, near the Cove. I do not think I would have ever found this place, since I was unaware that there are two pizza places in the same shopping plaza directly across from each other. Seems odd that the landlord would allow this, but I guess in these hard times, ethics don’t matter.

Upon walking into Little Menna’s, I thought it was kind of cute. The decor was nice, and the whole feeling was quaint. They do not have many tables inside and only a couple outside, so if this place does get busy, there will most likely be a long wait. The lady behind the counter was plesant, and said she was friends with the owners. She must be very good friends, since she took her job passionately and seemed proud to work for them. What I found odd though, was how hard she pushed her Christian beliefs on me as a customer, but whatever, I am not there to review religion.

I ordered a slice to split with my son, and waited since they just had a fresh pie coming out of the oven. Like most pies fresh out of the oven, the bottom was a bit soggy, and since my son and I have no will power, we bit right in and burnt the roof of our mouth. You would think we would have learned by now. The cheese was really good here, and I scraped every piece off the plate. The crust had a nice taste, but I didn’t care much for the sauce. The sauce was pretty powerful and overpowered the cheese and crust. It was garlicy, and way too spicy for me. My advice would be to cut back on some of the seasoning you are using in the sauce guys. You have the potential to make a really good slice if you could fix the sauce up.

Little Menna’s Pizzeria in Deerfield Beach gets 5 out of 8 slices.

    Regarding the landlord, it's not ethics, it's usually a non-compete clause in the lease. We don't know the whole story of how it got to be that there were 2 pizza places in the same shopping center, could be lots of reasons.

    i don't normally comment on review pages for restaurants/bars etc, however, my mom and i were down in the deerfield beach area last week. i don't think the review above has anything substantial to say – maybe 1 valid point about his opinion about the sauce.

    being italian and from new york i felt like a good slice while down in florida. we were actually in little menna's because the pizzeria opposite opens at 4pm. and the previous day we had been in that pizzeria and i actually found the employees there rude.
    who cares if there are several pizzerias in the same complex! i liked little mennas. i too liked the decor and its very clean in there. the girl that was working there the day my mom and i went was friendly and very accomodating. i don't know if the same lady was working the day this guy and his son came in there to review, but the fact that both our waitresses seemed happy says a lot, right? like maybe the owner/s treat them well? and this pizzeria wasn't too small. it's a pizzeria, not a 4 star restaurant! so 10 or more tables is ample. especially as most people walk into a pizzeria to take-out. anyway, as for the actual pizza – it's what i imagine a real new york slice to taste like! which is a great thing as we know our pizza's! i could tell the pizza was actually made with real homemade sauce and not tomato paste mix and the cheese was 'real grande' cheese! i too ate every crumb off my plate. i didn't have one bad word to say about the whole experience.

    i wonder who is this guy who reviews pizzeria's with his son?
