Scarfones Coal Fired Pizza Coconut Creek

The other day I headed over to meet my co-worker for lunch in the Coconut Creek Promenade at Scarfones Coal Fired Pizza. We have been eying this pizza place for the past month and finally decided it was time to take the plunge. I opened the door and wasn’t sure if I was in the right place. When you walk in there is a full bar and lounge, gorgeous industrial ceilings, and hip modern décor. This was definitely a unique pizza place, never have I been to one quite like it. The menu had good selection of pies to choose from such as their Healthy Flatbread Pizza or Whole Wheat Pizza. But I wanted to know what this place was made of. Traditional Cheese for me Please.

Before our Small 12” Cheese pizza arrived, I made a quick trip to the bathroom. Again, I was pleasantly surprised with the standards Scarfone’s seemed to carry throughout the entire restaurant. I hoped it carried over into their kitchen. I returned to the table and didn’t have to wait long to quiet my hungry stomach. The waiter dropped off the pizza and we jumped right in. I was very excited to try this “upscale” pizza.

At first bite, I knew the pizza was way too paper thin, and definitely not crispy enough considering they claim it to be “Crispy Pizza”. Pizza is supposed to have substance in thickness of crust and how crispy it is to hold the sauce, cheese, and other ingredients.

The sauce had a nice sweet flavor that complimented the perfectly melted fresh mozzarella cheese. The fresh cheese was my favorite part! But the sauce could use some thickening as it continued to cascade off the side of the slice between bites.

I kept eating, hoping I would like the next bite more than the last, this was not the case. All the pizza was gone and I was still hungry. After eating four slices!! Where was the rest of the pizza?!?!?! My opinion: Scarfones needs to put as much time and effort into their pizza, as they do with the décor. When that happens, I would love to give it another try.

Overall I give Scarfones a 4 out of 8 slices.

    Just tried it out for the first time. Yes, the place looks very modern with its open ceiling and vast display of glass tile over columns. The garlic bread was good. The wings where a little dry, but very tender. The pizza finally came, and it looked very good. My first slice, hot out the oven, it was pretty crispy. The sauce does need some thickening, it is more like pasta sauce slabbered over the pizza. Its to thin, and every bite you take it leaks out. I believe they used buffleo cheese with the motts. Pizza tasted really good, but after it cools down, it tastys soggy. Not really “crispy pizza” after all. I took home 3 slices, and when I warmed them up in my oven later, wow the pizza tasted even better than before. Any ways, its really good pizza over all. I give it 7 out of 8 slices!

    If Scarfone’s pizza is coal fired, then why is it not crispy?  Also, they don’t have a good sauce to cheese ratio.  The whole wheat pizza is not whole wheat because its cut with cheaper multi-grain dough (you can see seeds – whole wheat pizza should have no seeds in it).  Scarfone’s is an Anthonys wanna-be.

    Worst chicken wings i ever tasted. They are soggy and served in broth. Worst customer service also. i had one 2 bites of my chicken wing. i complained to the waiter that i didn’t like the wings and he said he would replace them with something else. The manager comes to my table and informs me that because i took more than one bite of my food, i violated there return policy( which is not posted anywhere). She tells me the owners policy is that after one bite, you should know if you like your food. After the second bite, they will not refund or exchange, no exceptions. i have never heard of a more ridiculous policy. i will never be back.
